Domain Name Industry Affiliate Programs


There are many people who invest in domain names that are involved in affiliate marketing. I've never been very good at making money with affiliate programs, but there are plenty of people who make a living off of revenue from affiliate programs.

To illustrate the idea, I am thinking about something along the lines of owning a name like (just an example).   In addition to explaining how PPC works, discussing parking provider relationships with search engines, and other information, I would have a page dedicated to each domain parking company. The page will give information about the parking company with a sign-up button that has my affiliate link. It's simple, but because of that, I will need a great domain name that will help me get good search rankings, so when someone searches Google for parking companies, the domain ranks well.
