If you don’t follow Rick Schwartz (Domain King) on Twitter, you should. I don’t agree with everything he says nor do I always agree with his approach to the business of domain investing, but there is no doubt that he is one of the most successful domain investors of all time. The way he operated his business over the years has put him in a position today that allows him to do whatever he wants. He maintains an exceptional domain name portfolio, and it continues to pay dividends for him.
Late last week, Rick replied to someone in a tweet and revealed that he has made $30 million in revenue via PPC parking. See the tweet for yourself:
It’s really hard to convince a guy like me that has made $30 MILLION on PPC and also has landing pages and all types of content and experiments to change what works and STILL pays the bills.
Maybe you need to look harder at what I am doing. My path works better 🤠

I could not begin to speculate where that stands compared to other portfolio owners, but that is a lot of money from domain name parking.
Rick was probably one of the first people to add PPC links to his domain names. When Rick started out and up until maybe 10 years ago (give or take), domain name parking was a great source of income for domain name investors. PPC revenue is not close to what it once was, but I am sure there are people who still make a nice income from their parked domain names.
I have known that some people like Rick made a lot of money from PPC revenue, but I couldn’t have accurately guessed just how much that was.
