    Developing & Learning About .in Domains

    Hello Everyone,

    Im starting this post which would help everyone who are using .in domains to park or who are developing.

    I would like to know from everyone how are they using there .in domains, Parking, Development, what affiliates are being used and so on..



    Also How much everyone is earning from there .in domain

    It would really help everyone, if everyone shares how they are using .in domains and how much they are making.


    I have started developing my .in portfolio and the results have been good and improving.

    One Example i can give is.. HairSpa.in i handreg this domain last year and then developed the domain around June 2011. Within 2 months my domain was in 1st page of google.co.in and after 3 months it was 1st in google till date.

    Earning has been going steady now, Its making $1/day from last 4 months, it gets approx 8k visits / month.


    A simple domain which costs Rs.100 i.e $2 for 1 year can generate earnings which we cant even imagine.


    I have been using adsense only right now as my earning source and i dont want to put lots of ads on my site which will make it look like made for adsense.

    Also i have been contacting few salons who do provide Hair Spa.



    Domain Investing is just amazing, i have been into this industry from last 8 years and have been developing domains, parking and selling names..


    Have learnt so much and still everyday when i open my laptop and see news about industry and ready forums, i feel i dont know anything and keep learning.


    You have to be very smart in picking domains, it comes from experience.. When you are new you will keep buying crap names and think about selling for 100's, 1000's but after sometime you will realize and grow smarter.

    Just keep things simple, easy. I always buy domains which i think i can develop and earn that has been my strategy from years now.........




    I would like to know about everyone else, which would really help us grow and better our skills and ideas.

    Great @GetAddicted, Regarding SEO and .in generally performing well, it is very true and it is like an endorsement. You just proved I am not blind(periodic checking of our methods is important) as I have done what you are doing and trying to do it again thank you. $1 is a start, $365 to $10 investment is an ROI that can't be beat even though the income is so tiny :) when everything adds up you are laughing. Dreaming for $100 or whatever is alright but we have to start slow, make as many websites and keep going keep building.

    I am doing and I will be doing what you have been doing and trying to do. Content on HairSpa.in is respectful. Way to go good luck.

    Congrats! It just confirms what I've been saying forever, .IN is not just a ccTLD like .co.in, it can also work perfectly as a gTLD.

    Thank you nametrader, It just helps each other with the methods everyone is using and we find and learn from different ways of earning.

    I just gave 1 example of my .in website, I have close to 90 Developed domains, and i have been dealing in USA insurance market from last 5+ years, I have 60 odd insurance developed domains which are making from $10 to $100/month...

    But that market is very tough to get ranked and it takes lots of time.


    Why im discussing about .in domains is the amount of traffic you get and you rank also quickly.

    I have 8 more .in & .co.in domains developed which are slowly comming in rankings, one of my domains was in 1st page within 2 weeks.

    What i like about .in domains is you get hell of a traffic as you have so many internet users in india.

    And in near future indian market will boom. I know people here dont pay high and cpc has been low, but it will slowly pickup.

    Also one more point i would like to tell everyone. .in domains just dont perform well in india... I have been ranking 1st for my domain hairspa in like 8 to 9 more countries... So its global.

    You are on the right track. Thank you for the report.
    I think 1 US $ a day is a good number. It´s not the number the "gurus" told us in their adsense masterplans, but the more dev domains the more you will make. As you wrote, clicks in india are paid very low, but it will getting better.
    Traffic from india deppends, on some dirty stuff is high traffic, but on stuff that would be running good in the rest of the world, traffic is low.
    Maybe not so many people in India want to buy / can buy , lets say a new 50 " LED TV. i don`t know.

    Hello lititring, $1 /day is just from 1 site as you told me, if we keep adding multiple sites number goes up and up..

    I have one friend near to where i stay he has some classy .in domains and all developed, i know his earning has been in $xx,xxx / month from adsense alone.......

    I know how to reach there and im on that path.. :D

    Also about the product thing 50" LED TV, people here dont buy directly online that easy, they like to go check at stores and then buy.

    But in comming future they will buy but the % would be really low, as people here love to buy from stores. Only one good thing is, they will search on internet about 50" Led tv, prices, reviews, whats good, whats bad and so on....... Here people use internet more for information, and stuff.. So this all sites going to be a boom in future.

    People here wont spend $2500 to buy a product, but they can spend $100 to $300 buying mobile phones, clothing, coupons... and & so on..........

    In 10 years time it may change, its slow coz here people are more worried about there SECUTIRY, hacking of bank account, credit card number, they fear to use there details online...

    India will grow slowly but it will be on top. I personally feel selling big products are not going to make big money, but selling small products, or information related to the product is goin to help.

    Also i know one mobile recharge site which has a turnover of 10 cr / month, i.e $200k, Just the TURNOVER though.. so you can imagine what you can do now :)


    So you need to think that way, on what domains you want to buy and develop with a simple and easy plan....

    It`s like some years ago in Germany. Me too are worried about the creditcard security and so on. I was only searching for infos. But now, why walk to that lousy store, with those bad salesman. Just order at amazon. one day later you have the new stuff. Now in this area , amazon has set up a new warehouse. They can send you some stuff in 4 hours. Ok, for india there have to be many warehouses :)

    Your friend must be a lucky guy. What niches are those .in domains?

    Hello, yes amazon is a good option, They have opened an online store for india http://www.junglee.com/


    Its the mentality what we have been living, Frankly speaking if i ask myself i will buy a 50" lef or products what cost you more than $1500+ or so.. i personally think twice, I will compare the rates in couple of stores, and at the end will buy from the Stores only. I personally do that myself.

    When reputed companies come in india and start selling there products directly then people will buy them.. Here there are many Sites selling, and many times there have been lots of complaint about the product been delivered in bad shape an so on..

    Once that stablity comes then things will change, I wish big brands in india setup there stores online and sell products online and have an Affiliate option so we can add those products directly that will help surely..



    About my friend, he has like 400 odd domains, and he has been developing all his names. His domains are in every categorie, from finanace to mobile to education to everything...

    Sorry i cant share the names, but his site are simple informative sites, 100 to 300 pages site with quality unique content..

    Google SERPS have been updated, and it has affected rankings....

    Google has been banning lots of sites, which are crappy, blogs with just links to other sites and you can say all meaningless sites.

    Its good for developers like me, my 4 domains have moved up in rankings, and one .co.in is 4th in google now in 2 months time. Google is getting Smarter day by day and you have to be very smart.

    Onething i want to tell everyone here, Just try to put quality content on your site as much as you can. coz in future quality informative sites are going to stand, others will come and go.

    Im sharing Few tips which helps me into developement and im sure it will help people who plan to develop domains, or who are new to domaining.


    When you think of developing a single domain, say 5 to 10 page website, you think about the cost of development, If you going to give to someone they will charge you between $100 to $250 or more. Domain registration, webhosting wont cost you much, inside $10. So this thing always troubles everyone. Get a site live would cost you approx $150 to $200.

    So when can we make profits, and if you have say 10, 20, 50 , 100 domains that would cost you a lot, Yes it will give returns later but till the time you have to burn your pockets.


    Say for Example Hairspa.in would have costed me $150, and its making $1 / day right now, First 6 months where slow as it wasnt ranking, so it might take atleast 1 year to get your investment back with development, IF your site ranks, or else it wont.it may take more time.That is just the General thinking when you plan to develop


    To be frank with you guys, Hairspa costed me $25 approx.

    $2 for a Domain,
    $10 for hosting / year ( coz i have a resellers account and i have 50+ developed domains )

    And i have couple of page content written,....

    $25 approx cost for my developed only because im a graphic designer and i myself design and develop my domains. so my designing cost comes to 0. thats the biggest advantage.

    If you want to be into development, i would advise 1 thing, PLEASE LEARN WEB DESIGNING, take a small course or learn online or whatever. Its going to save you lot of money.


    So i can have 10 developed domains in $250, and if i give to a web professional you will have 1 or 2 domains developed.


    Development can cost you big, also you have to have hell of a patience, If you have a site dont think it will rank in few weeks, Just wait and wait.

    Keep things simple, try to keep everything orignal, if you are adding just 2 page good content that is better than adding 10 page copied content.



    I hope this few things helps everyone. Im just always saying about HAIRSPA all the time, i hope it doesnt irritates anyone, coz i just want to show a live example to everyone.

    You may hear stories about development, but no one shares there site and ideas and everything.

    I just want to help people around, that is why im giving you a live example.

    I would also love to hear from others, there development skills and there success ideas.

    Hello,

    thanks for your great post.

    I like to develop in´s too. And its great to see more and more developed in´s.

    You said it is very important to have quality content:
    But why don't you do that? Copied text means not quality content.

    Your Website HairSpa seems to be just a copy of this site:
    :: Seema's Salon & Spa ::

    Text is 100% the same. :confused:

    Sometime the guys who copied are ranking higher than you.
    They may have better backlinks or the better domain.

    To get a good ranking at this times, your content has to be updated regulary. You have to be up to date what is happening in your niche.

    Let´s say the hair spa niche:
    If there is any news about this, like David Beckham got a new haircut in his favourite hairspa, you have to write about this. You don`t have to write the big story about this, just a short News article.
    This works trust me :)

    Ahh, forgot:

    You need very good backlinks for good rankings.
    You could write the greatest content on earth , but you won`t get any ranking without backlinks.
