Ask.com to stop supplying Google feed to Domain Parking Companies

by Frank Michlick in Categories: PPC industry

According to an article by DomainNameWire, Ask.com is to stop syndicating the google advertising feed to parking providers.

Domain Name Wire has learned through multiple sources that Ask.com’s Google feed will no longer be syndicated to parking companies as of March 1. A number of parking companies use this feed to augment other search results. I know that Parked.com uses it for traffic to some foreign companies, and apparently HitFarm and Skenzo use this feed as well.

Ask.com had also recently dropped a large part of their domain parking deals.

As I said before (and I’m not alone)

Buy domains that represent the generic description of products or services.

What is weird is how “hyperlinks” won’t be accepted to a previous domain name. Is Yahoo trying to commit financial suicide?

The aftermarket end-user market now seems very viable right now.

I am posting this comment since Skenzo’s name has been explicitly mentioned in the above article. Kindly note that Skenzo’s customer’s are NOT impacted by this change AT ALL.

@SkenzoRep: Thank you for your comment. Does this mean that: Skenzo does not use the ask.com syndicated google feed?
