There’s a new program that Google is cooking for all Adsense Publishers – maximizing revenue on undeveloped Domains with the new feature Adsense For Domains. This new program allows Publishers to put ads on undeveloped or parked Domains, by providing relevant ads, searches and information for visitors who happen to visit the site.
This is great news since ads on these pages convert well – probably because visitors don’t have any other option to get out but through the featured ads and listings. I have a dozen of “undeveloped” domains so I better start preparing those domains.
However, Adsense for Domains is only available to North America publishers at the moment, but Google have promised to extend this product to all publishers worldwide soon. After the jump is the announcement from Google posted at the Inside AdSense group page.
Extending AdSense for domains to all Publishers
Many publishers have approached us looking for a way to monetize their domains, and today, we’re excited to announce the expansion of AdSense for domains. This product allows publishers to earn revenue through ads placed on undeveloped domains. With AdSense for domains, users can find relevant information rather than see empty pages or “page not found” errors.
Today we present ads, links, and search results on the pages, and may add other useful information in the future. To ensure positive user experience and the quality of our network, these sites are monitored for policy compliance and prohibited from using text and images designed to confuse users. Advertisers also have additional opportunities to find their customers, and ads on these pages convert well. In addition, we regularly receive requests from advertisers who have found domains to be an effective way to reach their users.
The product will be initially rolled out in phases to English-language AdSense publishers located in North America, and we’ll expand to additional regions and languages in the future. To check whether AdSense for domains has been enabled for your account, log in and visit your AdSense Setup tab. For more information, please visit our Help Center.
