Industry Update - 19th Nov 2020

The stats are looking good!

There was a great discussion in one of the threads on NamePros that I felt almost compelled to join in. It was whether domain monetization is dead or not. My reply was essentially, no it’s not; it’s just changed.

What I find surprising is the number of domain investors that expect a different outcome by doing exactly the same thing. I hate to rain on your parade, but domain parking has moved on and become domain monetization. What’s the difference you may ask?

Domain monetization is ensuring that your valuable domain traffic is being competitively bid upon by the many, many global advertising networks…..not just one. Improvements in technology to access a multiplicity of advertising networks is a natural progression of a great industry.

The stats that I produce and comment upon each week are an indication of just how healthy and vibrant domain monetization is. No it’s not dead and as today’s stats testify, it’s alive and well.

Industry Update – 11th Nov 2020

The industry continues to roar through 2020

It’s been a few weeks since my last update and I must admit, it’s good to be back! So where was I you may ask? It just so happens that I had a long overdue minor operation that I ended up having done and spent some time recuperating. Nothing serious and I’m overjoyed at being back.

This week’s video contains all the invaluable data that I love sharing about….as well as a few surprises. It includes trend analysis from the beginning of the year for Google and Direct advertising networks as well as volatility charts. Yep, all good stuff that has the potential to transform your domain investment portfolio.

Industry Update - 12th Oct 2020

The Google upward trend is over...

A change has taken place with the Google increasing pay-out trend coming to an abrupt halt and they are now reducing what they are paying for domain traffic. That being said, the good news is the direct advertising networks are coming back alive to fill the gap.

The key charts in this video are what is happening with the earnings per click and click through rates and how they are both beginning to experience a step downwards. Naturally, this combined trend is impacting the normalized RPM and RPM as these key metrics take a hit for the worse. It will be interesting to see if this continues into the coming weeks.

Industry Update - 5th Oct 2020

It looks like the Google upward trend has ended.

This week we dive into the data and unpack what appears to be the beginnings of a major new trend that will impact everyone that monetizes domain traffic. The almost linear increase in the rate that Google has been paying for traffic has tipped over and now looks to be sliding away.

So has Google been playing a bit of a game by paying more for traffic, crushing the direct advertising networks and then now paying less? Time will only tell and I’m looking forward to viewing the coming week’s statistics. I wouldn’t be surprised if the direct advertising networks are more resilient than Google first anticipated…..so watch this space.

Conversations with Richard Lau

Richard Lau - founder of NamesCon and logo.com

Richard Lau is best known as the founder of the NamesCon domain conference but like many serial entrepreneurs he has his eyes fixed firmly on the future and his next venture. As well as discussing what it was like to attend NamesCon Online as an attendee we talk about his latest venture, logo.com.

I recommend that every domain investor should build out a domain into a real business and logo.com is the site to go to get an instant logo for your new venture. After inputting a few options, I was astounded by the creativity instantly displayed in a huge number of logo variations. Hear from Richard as he takes you on the journey into what it take to launch logo.com.
