Users can now filter domains based on traffic. Sedo has added a new filter to domain searches that enables users to find domains based on traffic counts. Revenue per Thousand (RPM) has increased for domain parking in recent years, but you need to have domains with traffic to take advantage of it. Now, searchers can filter domains to find only those with high traffic. Buyers should always be cautious of traffic numbers. They might not represent human visitors.

They can always enter into discussions with the seller to get more traffic details. The filter only works for domains pointed to Sedo, of course. Share this post...

Access to this API has been limited for a long time, and the company said this was because it needed to make changes to the back end to accommodate more users. As a preliminary step, the company has opened access to everyone to acquire closeout domains through the API. Have…
