msdomains, according to an article on Domain Name Wire, Epik gets its content via an ontology through Evri. Epik has an exclusive license to use this content:
Utilizing a semantic web ontology of two million people, places, and things, Epik automatically sets up a five page web site on your domains. Epik has an exclusive license (for use on domains) for content from semantic web company Evri.
I got some names at EPIK, their sites look good! but my revenue is less! I used to have good traffic on some sites, but the revenue after epik is poor. I dont know if i should try it how much longer!At least 1 more month, then i think ,it will be time for a review.
actually the traffic was not flying in really! but decent non the less, for a parked name. I see the traffic stats there and it has really been very poor. (with york mostly) . maybe some statistical issue.
I'm going to give it a full month, and then I'll evaluate.
I'm surprised about your domains - york.co.in and flying.in don't strike me as domains that would get a lot of traffic.
I've suggested some domains and more than a dozen were approved. But most of them are NOT geo-domains! To me it seems, that they have an internal catalogue of keywords. And if your domain matches - it will be accepted automatically. Some examples: Crop Tuna Water Power
(But I'm wondering a bit about the content, which is shown then. Pretty often the content is about some popbands and not about the original meaning of the key. As you can see here: Fuse )
Now let's see how Epik works and how the revenue will be.
Epik accepted a few of my domains so I decided to give it a shot with one domain for a solid 6 months.
After 6 months, I am sorry to say that my domain has earned under $1.00 US combined ($0.91 to be exact). Sure, I'll give it that according to Epik's numbers the domain didn't generate tons of traffic - but the entire site is under their control - means they are the SEO, they are the marketer and the Publisher all in one - so getting the traffic is up to them. The domain is an excellent 5 letter domain - very popular so the revenue numbers are very surprising!
Seriously, if they only approve "qualified sites" - there should be a system in place that allows the site owner to specify a monthly minimum expected.
The domain is still listed with Epik and will be pulled any one of these days due to severe underperformance. What a disappointment!
