I was doing some domain research yesterday when I came across ChristmasTreeLots.com, and I have to say that the landing page is great. In fact, it almost doesn’t look like a parked page at all. I did a bit of quick research (and emailed the owner), but I am not completely sure which company is behind the parked page, although I believe it might be Skenzo.
The navigation remains very simple, encouraging click throughs, and the top search bar is customized. People are encouraged to “search for the perfect gift,” and you better believe that no matter what they type in, there will be links to that product on the next page. If the owner emails me back, I will ask him how the results compare to other parked domain names that he owns.
Now is a good time to check out some of your holiday-related domain names to make sure they’re well optimized. Parking companies add new templates and images often, so perhaps there’s a better landing page now than there was when you set it up.
