Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Payout variables may/should include location of IP address of the click, actual bids for domain parking (versus Adwords bidding), whether bidders are able to target specific "high filter power" domains versus run of the mill domains (run of the mill domain parking clicks would likely pay far less than domain parking clicks that could be targeted to specific quality domains), and a plethora of other variables.
Did you run the issue past Sedo?
What did their employees say?
I've seen some nice click payouts, however I don't use Sedo, so I can't speak to their limits. I believe I've read about higher 1-click payouts. What I've been reading is that there is a level of dissatisfaction in the domain community with a fixed payout formula that Sedo "reportedlY" applies. Don't know if it's true - or has been true - that they paid a fixed max amount (.10) but I believe I also recently read that Sedo may be addressing this issue.
High PPC clicks don't come by the minute unless you happen to own Mortgage.tld, CreditCard.tld, Loan.tld or the like. I'm certain that even in those cases the clicks are filtered cour variables such as country of origin, IP address . . . and the type of car you drive. :)

Sedo's reputation is for bringing in big money sales, not PPC. I agree with Webwork that you should try out different parking services and see which works best for your domain. Some categories do well with one parking service, while other categories will do very poorly with the same provider.
My comment about fixed payment is simply gleaned from statements made in other forums I participate in or monitor routinely.
Please - ask Sedo, so we can put this to rest.
My advice: Ask very specific questions and ask follow-up questions if the answers "waffle".
Then let us know what you learn.
I had a couple of sites 'high paying keyword domains' that Sedo eventually shut down, not because they suspected 'click fraud' - which it wasn't at all - they cancelled my account because not enough of the traffic was 'converting' for advertisers.
I have heard about peeps having their sedo accounts shut cause not converting enough for advertisers. This perplexes me cause if google is happy - sedo should be happy. Presumably sedo gets the conversion info off google - google of course feeding sedo with ads. With adsense they have smart pricing to take into account non-converting - if u r not converting so well as an adsense user u are NOT thrown out of the program but just given less per click. Which i guess is fair enough. I dont know why sedo dont have the same kind of thing.
The overture tool is a good guideline for click prices, but it is, only a guideline. Also, as Sedo's advertising provider is not currently Overture, the results are not the same.
