Industry Update - 27th Nov 2020

Direct advertisers are surging back!

This week’s domain monetization industry is full of incredible stats that allude to the resilience of the direct advertising industry. Yes, they’re back and continuing to pay more for domain traffic while Google is paying less….even while Black Friday is upon us.

Amongst all the data, slides and commentary we mustn’t forget all those people that are suffering due to COVID. It’s a terrible virus that is taking a severe toll on families the world over. I would encourage you to take a few minutes out of your busy day and say a prayer for those that are doing it tough and then say another prayer of thanks if you are doing it well.

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.

Industry Update - 18th Sept 2020

An incredible event happened this past week!

This past week we have seen a benchmark change in the domaining monetization landscape. I thought I’d never see it happen, but it did, and I believe it will be the precursory to a seismic shift in how domains are monetized.

So, what am I talking about? For the first time in many years the average Google normalized RPM (revenue per thousand visitors) was higher than the direct advertisers. It was a single data point but one that I believe forebodes massive changes in the online advertising landscape as Google pulls back its market share.

This week’s charts are packed full of invaluable information for those domain investors that are wanting to monetize their traffic more effectively. The coming weeks are going to be incredibly fascinating as the journey towards Christmas moves forward.

Industry Update - NamesCon

Were you at Names?

During this past week I had the privilege of releasing the weekly Industry Update at NamesCon Online. I must admit that the online conference far surpassed my expectations and the sessions and networking opportunities were awesome….even if I was up from 1am-5:30am each day.

I thought I’d re-record the presentation I did at NamesCon as it also included a few things prior to the usual weekly statistics. What the first few slides really highlight is just how much the domain monetization industry has changed over the years as more and more innovation is driving greater returns from traffic.

I would like to thank the entire NamesCon team for putting on a great event. Also, it was great catching up with old friends and meeting some great people that I know I’ll refer to as friends in the future.

Here is a PDF file of the presentation I did at NamesCon.

Let me know your thoughts on NamesCon. What was good, what could be improved and most importantly, what you got out of the conference that’s going to impact your business.

Industry Update - Week 25

Great statistics and analysis in this week's review.

In this week’s video I share about a new master class I’ve just released on MasterClass Lessons (https://mcl.club) that discusses how to do a proper traffic test. It’s a little bit more advanced than the others in the Monetization series as I discuss macro, micro and group analysis strategies.

The statistics continue to amaze me as I pull some interesting insights into what is happening to the online advertising industry. Google is continuing to surge forward while the direct advertising networks are winning more traffic. All great information to domain investors in the traffic space.
