Is Google a Wolf in Sheep's Clothing?
Domain tasting should not be confused with domain kiting, which is the process of deleting a domain name during the five-day grace period and immediately re-registering it for another five-day period. This process is repeated any number of times with the end result of having the domain registered without ever actually paying for it.Next, some conflicting reports from reliable sources:
- Google Duped Us
- Google And ICANN Did Not Kill Domain Tasting; Domain Kiting and NSI Front Running DOA
- Confirmed: Google Domain Park To Cease Ads On Domain Kiting Sites
- New Policy Aims to Curb Web Site Name Abuse
I think parked domain advertising can be very effective. However, I don't want it commingled with search and contextual ads. Just as I like to keep search advertising separate from contextual advertising, I'd like to be able to manage domain advertising in discrete campaigns in AdWords. Doesn't that just make sense?
