Not too long ago, I registered the domain MeetUp.com.sg for a project I had in mind. I thought of making a website to help people to schedule small group meeting easily with a simple online app.
Project Abandoned, Domain Parked with Sedo
I registered MeetUp.com.sg before I got to know about Doodle.com which I think is a fantastic online meeting scheduler and extremely easy to use.
Now that I am happily using Doodle and not having to pay a dime, I decided to abandon the project and park the domain, MeetUp.com.sg, with Sedo.com. I intended to just let it parked there until the domain registration expires.
However, I was surprised to see that people are actually visiting this domain, without me doing any form of advertising, marketing or promotion.
This blog post is the first time I mentioned about this domain name publicly.
Abandoned Domain Name Generating Revenue
The domain is currently generating a small revenue through Sedo domain parking and I am thinking again if I should keep domain and build a proper content website to attract more visitors and increase the ads revenue.
Here’s what I found out from the statistics provided by Sedo:
- The keyword is “meetup”
- People are clicking at the dating ads
- More than 90% of the visitors came from Singapore
MeetUp.com.sg to become an Online Dating Website?
It seems to me that online dating is hugely popular in Singapore and there are a good number of advertisers willing to pay top dollar for online advertising. So, maybe, I could make a Singapore online dating site?!
Yes, it would be nice to dream about making a free online dating website as successful as PlentyOfFish.com. However, I am a geeky nerd and not familiar with or interested in online dating and matchmaking. I think it might just be too difficult for me to create good content to draw visitors and advertisers to the website.
