Using Google AdWords for Test Marketing

I just launched a site on behalf of a client that’s intended to collect resumes for addition to a database.

Since those 500+ domains were…

The Goog

Not only can you create an “Adsense” account, which lets you get paid to put a few links on your site, but you can park domain names and get paid for click-thrus there, too. You can also create pages, host your domain’s email, use full-featured calendar, email, RSS aggregator,…
