Of the PPC services that we have tried, DomainSponsor has consistently been best or among the best. The standard DS landing pages are now much improved although some are not beautiful. However, our returns at DomainSponsor are beautiful. Now, approved customers can also create custom landing pages with customer-selected keywords (and keyword exclusions), images (either from a library or by uploading your own custom images). DS also now allows you to se
It is a bit difficult getting started with DS. Once you get past the start-up and learning curve, DS is fun and quite profitable. We have some names that routinely generate Revenue per 1000 Unique Impressions (RPM) of $100, $200 or more, and our overall portfolio generates an RPM of $60. Adding new domains is very fast and easy as you can use URL forwarding and do not even need to use Domain Sponsor name servers.
If you sign up by clicking on the banner at the top of this page, then you will be a referral of ours. In return for that favor, we will provide you personalized tech support, to get you going quickly with DS. Domain Sponsor is not very good at getting their new affiliates off to a quick start.
To obtain the average $85 RPM, we use the basic level of Pop-Ups (Exit Pops), but not the "Residual Exit Pops" which we find to be obnoxious.
The Stats, like most things at Domain Sponsor, are not totally obvious, but with a bit of experimentation, you will see super reports on a domain-by-domain basis, or on a date-by-date basis. You can set any date range, a day, a week, a month or whatever by exact date. When you click on a domain in a report, it expands to show the month-to-date results for the domain. When you click on a date in a date-by-date report, it expands to show the data for that date on a domain-by-domain basis.
There is a "custom stats" feature, which allows you to input a list of domains you want to check, and the uniques, US uniques, and revenue for your selected time period will be generated. This is especially useful when you are deciding whether or not to renew a group of domains or when you want to evaluate a new group of domains that you have registered.
Reported RPM based on our results through September 2007.
