A number of people seem to be getting into domaining or simply getting their hands on domain names for whatever reasons. A number of these domains sit undeveloped and the owners may not be aware that they could potentially cash in on their parked domains. There are number of services out there to choose from where people can park their domains. Google recently announced their rollout of Adsense for Domains which will give publishers another option through which they can monetize their domains. The parked domains will display ads, links and search results which will generate revenue when clicked.
At the moment it is only available to English language Adsense publishers in North America but it will be rolled out to other regions in the future.
There are a few people out there though who are not at all enthusiastic about the product and see it as a way of Google trying to make money however they can in the current economic climate. Adsense for Domains was formerly known as Domain Park which itself was a product that was very controversial for a number of reasons. It will be interesting to see how things pan out in the near future but I think I will give it a try once it becomes available to me and compare it to other parking services I have used.
