Domain parking companies are probably going to take a hit on this one. Until yesterday, if you had many unused domain names and wanted to monetize them you had only one option: to register an account with some registrar or domain parking company, and let them run the ads on your domains while giving you a (minuscule) share on the earnings per click.
Google had an AdSense product for domains, but only people with huge portfolios could have access to it.
Today they are opening that product up to all publishers, so even if you have 3 domains laying around you will now be able to put AdSense on them.
Do not expect to earn some killer money with this, obviously. Still I am pretty sure it will be more money that what it was possible to make before with the domain parking companies (if nothing else you are taking out the middle man).
If you want to use this feature, you just need to log into your AdSense account and click on the “AdSense Setup” tab, and there should be an “AdSense for domains” option there. Currently it is only available to U.S. AdSense publishers though, but Google should expand it to everyone else soon.
