Domaingenius - i'd say it really depends on traffic. I get about 3,500 views, with a 6.97% CTR which means i get about £25 a month. Thats 200 domains, many of these are rubbish thou. I use Sedo because I do believe people are more likely to buy if they have confidence in a third party. Domain parking is only going to earn mega money if your domains are very very good!!
Nigel - your right mate, why do those dealing in dollars get the deal half price? If I talk in an american accent can I have half price too?

Hmm thanks for that. In which case I shall definately NOT be using likes of SEDO as can get much much more parking or partially using the domains just with banners. As for selling the domains. I think if someone really wants a domain then they will buy it whether its on SEDO or not. Why not choose one or two good domains, join Tradedoubler and Commission Junction, put a few banners on a basic web page and see what it produces over 1 month ,just to see !.

This seems a really useful site. I've got alot of tips from it already.
I'm intrigued by your suggestions. Would you mind posting a fuller explanation of what this involves? I'm sure this would help people like myself that are new to the game of generating income from domains and domain sales. There can be alot of information to sift through at times!

Just listed my domains on sedo, I should now have stats to show the traffic for those who have asked in the past!
I have noticed alot of you selling names via sedo, and you all seem to get really good prices for the domains, whats been your best sale on there yet?
I always point domains to my site, to give the buyer confidence that its me that actually owns the name? This is something that buyers in the past have asked for?
What are your comments?

Sedo are not .uk friendly
Unless you have a domain name worth at least a thousand pounds or more, Sedo is not a cheap or economically viable market place to sell your .uk domains for domains at the lower end of the market.
While they have relaxed their high fixed fee policy on .com and other domains, there is still a £100 fixed fee on .uk domains, charged to BOTH buyer and seller. This just seems very greedy on Sedo's part. It's certainly a major obstacle to selling .uk domains for many people. Sellers are being forced to price their domain names unrealistically high and effectively out of the market place. Those lucky enough to make a sale have to wait an incredibly long time, often years.
Why is Sedo being biased towards .uk domains like this? Sedo's costs are not any higher for handling .uk sales, and the buyer pays the transfer fee, so why the big fixed fee from Sedo?
You could take the view that since a large number of domains are parked with Sedo, Sedo stands to make a lot of money on advertising and clickthru revenues, so it's in their interest to have a domain name taking a long time to sell?

http://www.cj.com and then decided what you want to sell from their
lists of advertisers. Then apply to join each of those individual
affiliate (advertiser) programs ,copy of paste the banners(html code)
that you will will again find on the aforementioned sites and point all
your names at that web page/s. Thats about it really it is simple, else
I wouldnt be able to do it !

.. and the big question, do they typically pay more than 10c per click? (btw does anyone know how much sedo get per click, if I only usually get 10cents?)

In my view sedo are cr*p when it comes to transfers. Big or small domains. They are slow at doing very little, unprofessional and expensive.
I used escrow.com the other day - lower commission and at least the money transfer stuff is taken care of though I still have to do the chasing (sedo doesn't help at all with this anyway). They have a 'domain escrow' process that means you don't get your money until the other buyer receives the Nominet forms etc - which I think is good.
Sedo are also cr*p when it comes to pay per click revenues as far as my experience is concerned. I think domain parking is not a good long term option for any domain, and if you do, then try NameDrive - they are friendlier, more professional and for 60% of my domains they pay higher.
Sedo pay higher for some but overall ND is better for me.
See my post re revenue share as an indication of how much you get out of the pie. Noone has contradicted it yet so it lends itself to be not too far off the mark.
'Theory on percentage of ad costs as payments' in NameDrive section.
Sedo say they pay over 50% of what they get. Guess what? - I think that's not the case.
Alot of my Sedo domains show up in Google with some sort of cr*p 'this domain is listed for sale on Sedo who by the way also have 1,500,000 other domains to distract you away from this one' type message and sometimes even in German. What a stonking self promoting load of rubbish that doesn't help me a bit. Compare that with NameDrive's tags which are all subject related and good.
You can still list your domain in the Sedo directory without having to park it there.

I agree about the search meta tags.
<TITLE>smstextmessages.com - bulk sms info. This website is for sale!</TITLE>
<META NAME="description" CONTENT="The first internet search engine for domain offers, which are for sale. We have over 1.500.000 domains in our database. If you have domains/URLs to offer, place your free ad here!">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta name="robots" content="index,nofollow">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/css/style_park.css">
i.e. Sedo have a META name of their own description, whereas Namedrive allow the content to be searched, i.e. your chosen keywords.
OK namedrive looks a little messy in the search engine as it's all keywords, mainly from the top bar - BUT it's better than, as aqls points out: "The first internet search engine for domain offers, which are for sale. We have over 1.500.000 domains in our database. If you have domains/URLs to offer, place your free ad here!"
This IMHO helps get more hits through the search engines than sedo.
