    Google recently announced that they won’t be accepting anymore redirected traffic to any parked pages which display the Google AdWords PPC inventory. This move is going to have tremendous consequences throughout the entire domain industry come next week. Some parking companies are going to see 50% to 99% losses in revenue… The shakeout will take a few month’s to materialize into a huge shitstorm I predict.

    The main reason that Google is requiring people to park their domains using a certain set of provided name servers is to avoid the abuse of fraudsters and scammers from using domains for parking which they do not own. You must be asking yourself… Huh? Well, let me elaborate.

    Well if it does reduce fraud, then that's good for us honest parkers isn't it? Cynics would suggest otherwise but couldn't one hope for some of that previously misappropriated funds to see their way to publishers one way or another?

    Eg if advertisers see a better return on their ads, would they then increase their spend?
