Google offers AdSense for Domains to all
Not everyone knows that Google is also offering an AdSense partnership with people who own a lot of un-used domains. Now, every AdSense Publisher will get to run this campaign in their domains as well.
The Inside AdSense blog breaks the news:
Many publishers have approached us looking for a way to monetize their domains, and today, we’re excited to announce the expansion of AdSense for domains. This product allows publishers to earn revenue through ads placed on undeveloped domains.
With AdSense for domains, users can find relevant information rather than see empty pages or “page not found” errors. Today we present ads, links, and search results on the pages, and may add other useful information in the future. To ensure positive user experience and the quality of our network, these sites are monitored for policy compliance and prohibited from using text and images designed to confuse users.
This new feature in your AdSense account will be rolled out in phases, starting with English-language publishers in North America followed by other regions.
That means AdSense Publishers in the Philippines might not see this activated in their account until 2009.
Question now is whether this will eventually kill third-party domain parking service like Sedo. My guess is as good as your but it will most likely kick them off the market (unless they offer better profit sharing).
