Hi all. Been a lurker on MMD for a while and going to get started with some online money-making with $7 capital ($1 for a years' web hosting and $6 for 3 .com domains)

How:
  1. Develop niche sites and earn from AdSense
  2. Parking my domains then flipping them for profit
  3. Get traffic from cheaper sources (arbitrage) for step 1
Goals:
  1. $10 a day ACHIEVED
  2. $30 a day ACHIEVED
  3. $50 a day ACHIEVED
  4. $100 a day ACHIEVED
  5. $200 a day NOT ACHEIEVED (but earned this much on 30Mar & 2 other more recent occasions)

Spent so far: $512 ($12 for 6 domains + $500 to buy traffic)

REAL Earnings so far (in my Paypal): $5400

PENDING Earnings so far (on paper only): $4000 thereabouts

By When: 1st July 2012


To achieve the latter 2 goals, I need people to scale up my campaigns... but that's for another day.

I shall update this as and when I achieve my goals and my daily earnings. :D

Cheers!

Results So Far:
Day 1
Pre-testing for 3 days was awesome, with earnings per click averaging around $9. However, EPC seems to be dropping but I'm holding out for the best...

Day 2
Bought 2 more niche domains with avg CPC > $100. Hoping it translates to real adsense earnings. If not, $6 isn't too much anw. Yesterday's earnings: ~$70

Day 3
Both domains parked and ready to go. Traffic has been streaming in. Got 9 clicks totalling some $260+. Seems to be working. Will keep watch over the next few days tho.

Day 5
Past 2 days got whacked. Think domains have been smartpriced and so getting lower EPCs of <$10 now. Life goes on Since I've been earning >$10/day for consecutive 7 days, I'll tick the first goal off. Now for the 2nd.

Day 12
Past week was fraught with some minor hiccups such as being banned by one of the domain parking companies. That's $25 lost there so no worries. The bright spark was that I received 220 USD and waiting to receive another 600 USD by the end of this month for my March's 10 days of revenue.

Day 19
Nothing much. Some ups and downs as usual.

Day 26
Received my 2nd batch of earnings for March ~$600 from G and $45 from a secondary provider. Earnings are still strong though not as strong as the 1st few days. 1 domain has been banned by G, so ads are shown from another provider now. Per click earnings for the banned domain is $0.30 only wtf so looking to drop the domain.

Current April earnings for various providers:
1) $3500
2) Euros 200
3) Euros 250
4) $25

Day 33
Not much update. Same old, same old.

Day 40
Quick payment update - 450 Euros from Sedo. Time to buy another 3 domains to ramp it up. And I've entered into a JV with 3 people copying my success to their accounts.

End of May Update
Received $3k from parking corper.
2 small-scale JVs and 1 big-scale JVs +$2k in monthly revenues

End of June Update
Received $4k from parking corper.
Ended 1 JV due to unreasonable terms​

1st Day: Parked my domains successfully and everything seems loading fine. Did some keyword research with Google AdWords and identified around 50 high paying keywords that I'm gonna focus on. Each click supposedly gives me $10++ but I'm sure Google will eventually smartprice me and give me less...

As for traffic sources, I am still researching but I am getting a trickle now from a private site.

With the common conception of domain parking yes - I think that's far fetched for a $7 budget. Parked domains are usually parked for flipping or development in the future. I know people put PPC ads on parked domains for the random traffic they pick up but I wouldn't care to guess at how many domains you'd need to have parked to make 200/day - or even 50/day.

Are you sure you mean domain parking?

I'm guessing the term "Parking my domains" he used in original post has been used out of context or intended to mean something else, like a static landing page of some kind to collect user info, at least I hope it was, as I agree with what's being said, a $7 budget to get 3 domains to be making over $10 a day let alone $200 is not workable unless your throwing some serious juice at it. But that would be better spent sending them to something other than a parked domain if that's what your going for. I only ever park my domains if I really need to, or between selling & transferring it as even when parked it offers no real value to me other than showing it exists and is connected at both ends.

I really mean domain parking as in Sedo and NameDrive... I really think I can achieve it as I did my research using the Google keyword tool and some clicks are worth upward of $100 per click.

I currently have 6 domains in my portfolio, going to add more in the future.

It doesn't seem like the way to go personally. A parked domain isn't going to rank organically anywhere and if you're driving traffic why not drive it to something which is going to get you a better CTR?

Each to their own but that's just my two cents. Best of luck however you do it.

if you think you are going to get $100 clicks or anywhere near that then you didn't do enough research
I know, the max I'm getting is a $57 EPC but I'm still still satisfied.

Thanks. I'll pull my domains from a parked state when I have the time.

If you get to the point of where you are holding the cash in your hands I will be VERY surprised. I can't see G not banning you, but who knows.

See what happens.

act are you hosting the parked domain with Adsense?

The reason is on the 14th they are dropping the parked domains for adsense?

We’d like to remind you that Hosted domains will be retired soon from your AdSense account. Our records show that you have Hosted domains that have accrued earnings since the beginning of April
- the email I got from them earlier this week.
