goDaddy Cash Parking Report and Keyword Tool

GoDaddy Cash Parking Report and Keyword Tool.

Following on from my previous post goDaddy Cash Parking Report

I have updated the tool to allow you to update keywords for your domains.
Please see the previous post for information about getting the report to work as this is an extension on that post.

This update is to allow you to change the keywords associated to each domain in your cash parking account.
To update the keywords for a domain, run the report as detailed previously, then click on the left hand side of the domain in the report as shown in yellow in the image below, this will launch the  new keyword form shown, this form will allow you to update the keywords for the selected cash parked domain as shown below.

Note the goDaddy web service to allow you to update keywords this is very limited. It doesn’t allow you to see the currently existing keywords associated to the domain. So this cannot be displayed in the UI.
There is only a maximum for 4 keywords available.
There is only a combined maximum for the 4 keywords of 100 characters which includes the keyword separator so really only 97 available characters.
To help you know what the character count left available is, the UI will show a count for each keyword and a total for all 4 keywords.

You can get my full goDaddy Cash Parking reports application with the source code by downloading the following zip.
goDaddy Cash Parking Report Keyword.zip

Or if you just want just the Application and not too fussed about the source code, download the following zip.
goDaddy Cash Parking Report Keyword.exe.zip

Then extract them into a directory and run the goDaddyReport.exe this will launch the application.

Here’s what the application looks like below.

Need more detailed reports about your goDaddy cash parking?

GoDaddy are the number 1 in world wide domain sales and if you’ve bought one or more domain names from them, then you can try and monetize those parked domains with cash parking.
Although goDaddy make it easy to get your domain name monetized it’s not always the best option as from my personal experience as there is not much in the way of returns. But that ‘s not why i’m writing this article

If you have like me, a large number of domain names that you are investing in or developing later, it’s a simple way to make a couple of bucks to help pay for the domain name each year.

Now that’s great but you’ll want to know which domains are generating revenue and which ones aren’t, and how much traffic is going to each domain.

One large problem with goDaddy’s cash parking aftermarket management website is that you can only view the top 3 domain names for any of their reporting categories. (Revenue, Impressions,Clicks, RPM and CTR). This is fine if you only have 3 domains, but when you have 3 or more like myself it is nearly as useful as tits on a bull as a reporting tool, as seen below for their interface.

 goDaddy  Cash Parking Website Managment report

As you can see by above it only show’s three domains and i have 126 parked. Not very happy.

The good news is, is that they have a web service to allow you to retrieve the details of all your domains, the bad news is you need to be a developer or pay someone to create an application for you to get the info you need.

If you use goDaddy for your cash parking and you don’t have any experience with developing applications that hook into web services this is where I am helping out. I have creating a little app that allows me to get all the reporting information that is currently available via their web services. And the good news for you is that i’m sharing it with you.

You can get my full goDaddy Cash Parking reports application with the source code by downloading the following zip.
goDaddy Cash Parking Report.zip

Or if you just want just the Application and not too fussed about the source code, download the following zip.
goDaddy Cash Parking Report.exe

Then extract them into a directory and run the goDaddyReport.exe. This will launch the application.

Here’s what the application looks like below.

You will need your goDaddy username which has to be the numeric username otherwise the goDaddy webservice won’t recognise your account.

you will need your password that you use to login,

And your cash parking Api Key. for more infomation on the cash parking API key see these links  Working with cash parking and Setting up your cash parking account

Once you’ve got all the login details sorted, you will need to specify the date range you want to report on – no greater than 90 days between the two dates, and also the report output location to save the report too and the report type you want to store it as (CSV or XML).

Then click on the Get CP button and voila.

Note.
Currently this application doesn’t allow you to change the keywords for each domain just view the stats but i’ll update the code and add another post to allow you to do that later.
