    just starting out

    i picked up a dozen domains today..got them all set up at Namedrive.com

    Questions:

    I configured the sites with key words..templates etc. What is the amount of time it usually takes until you see some stats on the control panel?

    Is there way to configure the parked domain that usually gives best results? I.E. with Namedrive.com they allow portal style versus one click, etc?

    Im a newbie at this so thanks for your time and if i missed any posts that go over this sorry for the repost.

    that'll depend if your domains have traffic - you're not creating the traffic by registering a domain and parking, you're tapping into traffic that was already inherent (even unregistered domains can get on-spec traffic). If there was no traffic before, there won't be real traffic now.

    Bear in mind you may get some single digit non-clicking traffic from the various indexing bots out there.

    there are pros and cons to both layouts depending on the focus and targetting of the name and the bid values they get.

    1 click works well if the domain is clearly targetted and the bid value is good for the targetted term as it helps the click through ratio.

    2 click can be good where you want to present a number of choices to the visitor - although it could have an impact on ctr, it may help get a better average per click amount through the choices presented.
    When using google for counts - use double quotes for usage counts for multiword terms and set "match type" to "exact" for all search volume lookups. Click here for more info
