    Adsense for Domains - Can put up a sales note too?

    I have a bunch of domains of varying quality. While waiting to develop them (which can take me years at the rate I am going), I was thinking of parking them with adsense.

    Any experience with that? Anyone making money from parking domains (probably not much of type in traffic for those)? Can I put up a sales note too, like with Sedo?

    I have just started playing around with Adsense for domains too. As expected it gets zero traffic.

    You have almost zero control over the content of the page. You can customise the colours and give keyword "hints" but that's all. So I am pretty sure you can't add a for sale note.

    Yeah, I figured that would be the case, since when a parking service does let you sell them, they are usually the broker (like Sedo). I guess I may as well develop them

    It'll get whatever traffic it got before you added Adsense for Domains...

    That's the nature of a parking page.

    It depends on how much type in traffic you have currently. Since parked pages go into Sandbox, you will get no traffic from search engines. I would recommend quickly putting up 3 page microsites on each domain name, with some light backlinking for each, just to expedite the sandbox process. This way, when you are ready to develop your sites, you will be ahed of the SEO game

    What I meant was I didn't know how much traffic the page got before I starting using Adsense on it.

    Adsense has confirmed the traffic level that I already suspected... zero.
    That wasn't a dig Adsense.

    That's a shame. I would've considered giving adsense for domains a go if you could add a for sale lander page along with the ads. However without this it's useless to me as most domains get minimal traffic so I'm better off getting a sale then a few cents in ad revenue.

    What? SEDO? That is the most popular source out here.

    I parked 4 domains on adsense for domains just to test it and after two weeks have had zero income so don't expect to get rich overnight on it.
