Godaddy Introduces Quick Content Plans For Developing Domains

by Adam Strong in Categories: Domain Development

GoDaddy LogoGodaddy has introduced a new product that enhances their “Cash Parking” domain parking service and gives domainers one more domain development option. The “Quick Content” service provides customers using “Cash Parking” with content to further develop out their domain names. The service is a $49.99 annual fee.

Providing content and monetization services for domain owners now puts Godaddy in to a similar realm that other “development” companies such as WhyPark and DevHub.

Godaddy has partnered with Associated Content to allow users to easily add AC’s unique user-generated content to their domain pages.  Associated Content has partnered with domain companies in the past.  Former heavy-weight domain company, IREIT partnered with the company to add user generated content to their domain name projects as well.

From the product page – Our partnership with Associated Content ensures you get multiple pages of the true custom content you choose, not a jumble of RSS feeds or duplicate content.

Many domainers use Godaddy as a registrar and this added feature should be of interest to any Godaddy customer especially domainers looking to develop more of their domains. As Godaddy continues to grow, it is likely that we’ll be seeing more and more services geared toward domainers coming from the company.

I would not even pay $1 for those templates and setup.

GoDaddy should be ashamed for charging their customers for this crap.

But it’s business as usual.

I’m sorry, but all these services are simply SPLOGS, it does not matter what you brand it or color it or who sells it. It’s the same thing and google is slowly starting to realize this. Taking syndicated content to index domains will murder the value of that domain, and it will be banned eventually. And although it seems practical to monetize a large number of domains with these services, I know the only way to add real value is by having unique content and/or full development.

I can’t blame the people who pay for these services because the companies that sell them don’t tell you that 50 other domains in your category have the exact same content, layout, and probably keywords (if you use automatic keywords).

What to do? I don’t know yet, but these alternatives are all extremely short term and have low ROI.

Dan . not sure your comment was about GD or not and I can’t speak out for Godaddy but according to what was said the content is unique and not duplicate. Not sure about it as DNN has not used it so I can’t be a critic yet.

Interestingly enough this “unique” content can be found on other sites. A google search in quotation marks for the first paragraph of the SQL site, comes up with 116 sites that have the same text.

I got similar results (397) for the first paragraph of the SEO article – the last example seem relatively clean.

I just activated Quickcontent & shocked that the content they are charging for is the freely available, DUPLICATE content on article directories such as Articlesnatch etc … What’s worse is that these articles include linkbacks to the website which the article was written to promote.

So they want us to pay to promote another website? Sorry, not how I play ball … disappointed with Godaddy!
