Fabulous.com is more than a PPC service, it is a super registrar, providing lots of high quality services to domain owners. The domain portfolio services, including name server use and control, make Fabulous a true domain owners friend. The PPC search engine is Roar.com (an affiliated company).
Payouts have increased, with domain owners receiving a generous 75% revenue share, if you leave the optimization up to Fabulous staff. Fabulous gives you so many choices in creating a page, that most people will do better to let Fabulous do the optimization. You get a 50% revenue share if you do it yourself.
If you own the minimum 50 domains (registered with any registrar), you can sign up with the link at the top of this page. This also entitles you to discount domain pricing of $6.75. You can use your Fabulous PPC earnings to pay for new domains or renewals as earned.
The 4.0 premium program differs from the regular program in that PPC results for the landing page come from a third party partner with a blend of PPC suppliers on an exit page. This program claims to have one of the highest payout in the market place however there are eligibility requirements:
Fabulous seems to generate especially high RPM's on casino, gambling, adult and pharmaceutical traffic. If your domain portfolio is strong in those categories, you may generate much more income than the average RPM we found in our tests.
The Statistics are overwhelming at first, but they are the Gold Standard of PPC domain stats. It takes a while to figure out all the options, but the stats are designed to enable you to manage even thousands of domains with relative ease. You can review stats name by name, or you can create groups and subgroups. You can get very fancy, but there is always a quick report of stats for the last 30 days when you are trying to figure out what to do with an individual domain.
The new stats feature is found under the "Host" button , located next to each domain in a Revenue Report. The Host button leads you to (1) a list of referrer links, so you know where the traffic for this domain is coming from; (2) search query results for major search engines; (3) Country of Origin, so you know which countries your traffic is coming from; and (4) Spider Activity, so that you know if any search engine spiders have visited your site lately. The Host data is for the last 7 days. Pretty amazing what you can learn from this data.
The main negative about the stats is that they can be painfully slow. Patience is required. The more names you have, the slower it gets. Some reports will take a minute or more to generate.
Reported RPM based on our results through November, 2005.
