So Long Typepad

With the help of Jay Westerdal at I have just migrated to a "Wordpress" account. Jay is the most famous Internet entrepreneur to ever build something for a domainer.  One day you will read this post and say "holy moses" can you believe "Jay" and his team built something like this for a regular individual?"

Thanks a million Jay..  Special props to you mister unspoken techie at domaintools. You are my real American hero.

You can find me at from now on..  Me worry about duplicate blog content and it’s impact within Google’s algo?!?.. You gotta be kidding me..  Haven’t you read this blog?..  If you can’t type in your address bar .. You need to stay in Google’s insular world and read my content scraped second hand on a reader or a third party site.  Thanks for the memories Typepad.. it was fun 😉

Traffic Arbitrage for Everyone

Regular reader writes:

""Web traffic arbitrage means a few things.

The best way to learn this is to do some preliminary research and then begin to do it.  It can be done on a very low budget during the learning stage.

I am posting text ads on one network and then sending to parked pages that have an ad feed from a different network.  Doing it very small scale for now, to make sure I really understand the subtleties. Have seen a few darn interesting little profit bubbles. Testing with travel and vehicle related keywords.

I understand now how someone could make $ 1,000 or more in one day doing
this. Not easy to do, but possibly achievable.

On a separate note. I found an old name of mine that wasn’t active.


It used to get 4 to 5 type ins a day a few years ago. I turned it on recently, and it’s averaging about 55-60 type ins a day. 80 percent of the traffic is USA, Canada, England, Ireland and Australia. Pointed to X (a parking company), and it started making 60 cents a day. Then 4 days later, pointed it to y (a parking company), and it’s now making 1.75 – 2.50 a day. I’ve just signed up for Z (a parking company), and i think it’s possible this domain is going to make 4 or 5 dollars a day.

Interesting process.

Great blog, Frank.

Why Is Featuring (Probable) Typo Squatting Domain Names In Its Daily Sales Emails?

Todd Mintz raises an excellent question..  Selling TM intent domains has been going on since before Michael Arrington was the CEO at Pool.  I suspect it has less to do with "design" on’s part and more to do with the sheer volume of names expiring.  You can only prescreen so far. Still, a rudimentary filter or diclosure relating to trademarks would not be that difficult and would probably help as this industry matures.
