Do you mean Adsense for Domains?  IMNSHO, it's click fraud, and
seriously endangers some ccTLDs.  The indirect impact on DNSSEC
deployment is especially grim.

I assume Adsense for Domains improves conversion rates significantly
for advertisers because existing customers end up at the parking pages
and use one of the presented links to navigate to the service they
were looking for.  It would be far cheaper for the brand owner to
register and manage those domains itself.
