Dev Hub just shared with me the results of a three month test of 50 domains chosen by the client a domain name portfolio holder. As you can see from the chart’s below, over the three month test the domains that were previously just parked, went from making $63 a month to over $140 a month.
The 50 domains went from having no search traffic when they were parked to getting almost 3,000 visitors from search in the third month on Dev Hub platform.
So while some of the improvement in revenue can be attributed to additional traffic generated from search, Dev Hub was able to generate 58% of the revenue from sources other than parking.
Pretty impressive, especially when you consider the fact that only 1/2 of the domains in the test were .com’s.
This report comes at a time when the industry is looking for new and better ways to monetize domains.
It was just a little over a month ago that I was sitting on the TRAFFIC test track panel when Mark Michael one of the co-founders of Evo Media Group, the company behind the development platform,, Dev Hub appeared before us looking for an additional $1.5 Million of investment capital. Although I was quite impressed with Dev Hub system and Mr. Michael’s presentation, I couldn’t commit to that type of funding in the 15 minutes we had.
Looks like I made a bad decision.
Here is the charts and relevant data for the case study:
