I own multiple domain names. Most of them are parked with some parking service provider. I also have few WordPress sites I maintain. Last week I applied for AdSense and got accepted, and placed ads. However, I want to increase the traffic flow into my WordPress sites.

I was thinking to unpark all the domains I have and point them all to my WordPress site. Will that cause an issue with AdSense?

Some might argue that I should leave them parked, but I made than same amount in a week with AdSense than 6 months with the parking provider...

  • Having domain names that are then redirected to another site does absolutely nothing for you. You need to gain traffic the old fashioned way - hard work.

  • Not redirect - the NS will point to that same server/folder. Commented Mar 29, 2016 at 20:30
  • Either way, adding domain names do nothing for site traffic. It is like adding labels/ model names to the back of your car. It is still one car with the same capacity to haul butts around as before.

  • Adsense does not care where the traffic comes from in this case? Commented Mar 29, 2016 at 21:42
  • It has nothing to do with Adsense. Adding domain names to a site does not add traffic or value. What does add value and traffic is a good solid site that people want to visit again and again along with engagement to keep them interested.

You shouldn't point the nameservers to the same server, this way you'll have multiple domains with the same content. You'll get a bit more revenue at the start, but when the duplicate content penalty sets in, you'll probably lose traffic to both sites.

I would 301 redirect the parked sites to the actual site. This way, you won't get the duplicate content issue. Your parked site will disappear from the SERPs if the 301 is in place too long, but since it's a parked site, I'm assuming it's not being returned in search results anyway.

Either option shouldn't be a problem for Adsense by the way. It's real traffic with real clicks.

All of this assumes your parked domain is getting traffic on its own. It won't help you get more traffic in any way.
