Many domains receive type-in traffic. Type-in traffic refers to people looking for information or products online and, instead of doing a search engine query, type in that required information to their browser. This is also known as Direct Navigation.
For example, someone looking for trip facts online might simply type in www.tripfacts.com instead of searching for ‘trip facts’ in a search engine such as Google.

In the case of www.tripfacts.com, adverts relating to trips. Every time a visitor clicks on the ads, our customer receives money.

The adverts are generated by external advertising partners.
Companies who pay to advertise online allocate certain advertising Keywords to their adverts. This means that their advertisements will only appear in certain contexts to guarantee that they are only seen by their target audience.
To ensure that targeted ads appear on your parked domains, we assign your domains keywords which are relevant to the domain names and correspond to the keywords set by our advertisers. This ensures that the advertisements which appear on your domains are relevant to the visitors’ requirements.
In addition, we track every visitor's country of origin and display the page in that country's language. Working with an ad provider which has extensive global coverage means we can ensure that users see targeted advertising, wherever they are from.
