  1. A domaineer is a person who engages in domaineering which, according to Prof. William Lorenz, is the web-based marketing business of acquiring generic Internet domain names for the purpose of monetizing them through their use primarily as an advertising medium. In essence, the domain names function as virtual Internet billboards with generic domains being highly valued for their pay-per-click ( PPC ) revenue generating potential derived by attracting natural Internet traffic hits from organic search engine results. As with traditional advertising, domaineering is part art and part science. Often to be the most effective as advertising tools, keyword rich domain names and their corresponding landing pages must be engineered or optimized to produce maximum revenue which require a domaineer to have considerable knowledge of search engine optimization ( SEO ) practices, marketing psychology and an understanding of the target market audience.



    Domaineers generally utilize a firm offering domain parking services to provide the sponsored "feed" of a word or phrase searched for thus creating a mini-directory populated largely by advertisers paying to promote their products and services under a relevant generic keyword domain. Occasionally content is added to develop a functional mini-website.

    Domaineers and some of those who advertise online using keywords believe domaineering provides a useful, legal and legitimate Internet marketing service while critics of domaineering oppose the practice as increasing the ubiquitous commercialization of the world wide web.


    Domaineering is practiced by both large companies who may have registered hundreds or even thousands of domains to individual entrepreneurial minded domaineers who may only own one or a few.
