Voodoo.com Review by CashSherpa.com

I actually just signed up for Voodoo.com last week. The Voodoo interface is awesome! Adding domains to your account is fast, the parked domain pages look nice and have proven to have a high click through rate. The only problem so far is payout is averaging about $0.10 per click. Google recently ended its domain parking service so I had to switch to a new company. So far the look and ease of use of the account is better than Google, but payout is lower.

Domain parking is a very unusual part of the Internet, something that’s in used for thousands, perhaps millions of domains, yet only the most savvy Internet marketers really know what goes on behind the scenes. The concept is simple, you have a domain name, but you don’t have any site to put up on it, or you simply don’t have the time or desire to build a site. So normally, that domain would sit there, being useless. So a few years back, the concept of domain parking became popular. Anyone with domains they aren’t using could park them, where some relevant links would populate a computer generated page, and any traffic that happens to come onto that page would see these links. The owner would then be paid as visitors click on the links. Needless to say, this quickly turned out to be big money, and many companies wanted in. Voodoo.com is one such site offering parking services, and here is a quick review.

Domain parking isn’t new, and by now pretty much every domain registrar offers to their customers the option to park their domains until they are ready to use them. But each company provides slightly different features and incentives. After all, the main purpose behind this is to make money, so that’s why Voodoo is putting a lot of efforts into that aspect of the service. When you go to the site, you can see right away a list of features, along with why you would want to use them as opposed to your domain registrar. So the first point they repeat several times is how good their ad provider is, and how they can get you the best ads for your parked page. Obviously that’s important, so as long as that’s the case, you can expect good financial results. They also offer tracking, which is usually something you find in most tracking services and is also very important.

Another feature they have is the ability to customize your parked page. This is something you don’t find often so it can be a positive element for Voodoo. You can select from one of several templates for your page. Finally, they provide full API access for customers. So as you can see, they do have quite a few features, and everything you could expect from a domain parking service, which frankly isn’t all that much. But what about actually using them? Are they reliable, more so than your domain registrar? For that, it’s easy to look through customer reviews. Overall, they seem pretty positive. One thing that’s mentioned is that they pay via PayPal and don’t keep any fee, however some have mentioned that because they are a somewhat new service, sometimes the income can seem a bit lower than some other options.

So should you use Voodoo.com? There’s no question that if you have the opportunity to build an actual site on your domains, then that’s always more desirable than parking. However, if you have those old domains you simply aren’t developing anymore, then yes, a Voodoo account may just bring you a couple of extra bucks at the end of the month.
