Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I'd expect this kind of crap from a 3rd tier ppc engine that I paid a few cents a click for.. But it's very aggravating to see this coming from a ppc engine that charges top dollar. Google seriously needs to rethink their DomainPark program (or at least do more quality control) and give advertisers more control over were their ads are shown and how much they pay for content targeted ads.
Exactly! I couldn't put my finger on it, but that is exactly what it is. And notice that google has banned most of US 39,000 domains.

Please do, but please do something with it. Other "dedicated" G email address tend to be bottomless pits.
there may well be some advertisers that want to advertise on a parked domain.
I'd be more happy than happy to advertise on parked domains - I just want a seperate market for it.
For regular content ads, I'm willing to pay about 60% of what I pay for search ads.
For domain parked ads, I'm willing to pay about 10% of what I pay for search ads.
Different advertisers will have different utility functions, but we cannot express them with a intermingled marketplace.
I'm sure plenty of advertisers would do DP ads if they were less expensive than searches that might appear on AOL for arguments sake.
I can report that the syndicated partner that was sending traffic to incorrect landing pages due to tracking anomalies have rectified the errors.
Every topic has a myriad of subtopics, and content ads are at their most effective when the ad matches the subtopic of the page content. I only have to compare my Adsense CTR and my affiliate CJ CTR to figure out that the reason why Adsense is many times that of CJ, and why only 1% of the CJ clicks turns into a sale is that there just isnít any affiliate advertisers that are a good match for the topic of my site.
Sure you can get related ads directed at other types of consumers that fall within the big topic, but most people might click just out of curiosity. I have to say that this concerns me somewhat since it might prompt some of the advertisers to turn off content altogether.
