    Hi

    I have a couple of uk typo domains of faceb**k that are parked with Namedrive and whilst they get 400 odd views a month the CTR is only between 2 and 3%. Any suggestions on the best keyword & page setting to improve revenue ?

    Or is it a case of the type traffic that this particular typo generates ?

    Best Regards

    I used to have a typo of a well known auction site. Got lots of views per month but sod all clicks. I think people are only interested in the correct site. So unless there is a clearly visible link to said site your not going to get many clicks. you could be treading on thin ice thoough

    Dear All

    I have had some advice which basically is that with this particular typo the best thing to do is to set a relatively high paying keyword such as 'date match' or 'advanced MP3' on the basis of trying to get those few actual clicks earning some reasonable revenue.

    I have tried that suggestion with one of the domains and put other with 'park4money' with a site setting of 'dating' - I'll let you know in about 2 months times (given the current rate at which my other park4money sites seam to take to get indexed by Google) which approach is more productive.

    Thanks to all that have replied either directly or via PM.

    Best Regards

    I have a typo of an adult dating site. I get a 50% click through cos the 'real' site is always at the top of the featured listings. Why retype when you can click a correct link !!

    Yes but how do you get the real site at the top? I had an auction site typo and used the keywords with and without the .co.uk and If I was lucky it would appear at the bottom of the page on sedo???
