sahil, from another thread, i came to know that you have a flash games site under heavy construction.

wanna implement a cool mesothelioma flash game or why do you ask?

Overture has a tool for that. ;)


 12:41 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

With any of them there are no fixed rates. That depends on how trusted and established and genuine your site is, and how qualified the clicks are.

No advertiser will pay more than a few cents for your new site (built around) a high price keyword. Stop looking for shortcuts and build a good and useful site for your visitors on any subject that you are an expert on.


 12:43 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

Boy top paying key words are good. okay!

But top bid prices are not enough,you need to have the ad inventories for your chosen keywords, or you risk wasting time chasing after keywords that are duds and losing valuable adSense profits. Believe me keywords with 20 to 25 competing ads are Ok to use ( target).

Try home jobs, online jobs, dating tips, dedicated server, web hosting, insurance, online education, credit cards, credit repair, mortgage etc.

i am not looking for shortcuts to success in webworld.
i know what is the need of hour it to have a good content site. But please understand i am totally a newbie in this webworld. it was just to gain knowledge.

Don't forget to look at prices on different positions for a keyword. Obviously a keyword that the top bidder is paying $100 per click on, and 2nd place is paying $0.25 isn't going to pay much, and some terms in the Personal Injury area that ARE like this.


 1:45 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

When I get my asbestos caused cancer, I will ignore the medical profession and come to your website for all my advice.

Seriously though, have a look at the search results for these phrases as well, will you be able to get enough authority sites to link to you to even get into the top 1,000 for phrases you want to target?

Irrelevant to Google AdWords/AdSense. The prices are often widely different.

Gives you a starting point to work from. Better to know what the same keywords are going for on an engine that lists the prices so you have an idea, rather than not knowing at all.


 4:57 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

This forum is full of good advice - here's some of it now:-

Mesothelioma: $52.81

There are thousands of people doing what you want to do - chasing "supposedly" high paying keywords. In fact, the market is saturated.

Why on earth would an advertiser pay $52.81 per click on a minimal/no content site specially constructed to extract the maximum number of clicks?

Simple answer is that they don't.

Advertisers only pay that much for leads when they know that they will get a good return on their investment. Does your proposed site give them the quality traffic that will buy their product/service AND is worth $52.81 per click to them? What is going to make your site different enough from the thousands of others doing exactly the same as you are?


 5:48 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

The truth is that most profitable with AdSense is the opposite of what you think.

Here is what you should go.

Go to internet cafe

Open AdSense account with fake information

Create a site about mesothelioma, asbestor litigation, refinancing or other supposedly hot keywords.

Go home and click ad for they keywords you target once.

Log in tommorrow and get amazed that you got entire 3 cents for a 50 dollar keyword.

Don't be stupid enough to do this with a real AdSense account, because Google may rightly ban you for the rest of your life and don't be stupid enough to open fake adsense account with your real info.

I haven't done this myself, but there is a tutorial on the net with a video of the screen, so you can actually see that yourself and forget the M word once and for all. 3 cents. That's how much you get for it.

Are there high paying niches for AdSense? ABSOLUTELY. But they are the opposite of what you've been told. Basically these are keywords in the 0.50-1.50 range with dozens of advertizers in the niche.

The rule of thumb is the best site for AdSense is the one that works well WITHOUT AdSense. If AdSense is a must, the site sucks and you won't make any money with AdSense.

Open AdSense account with fake information

Giving advice like this, bothers me. While it may be true you can do this and get away with it. It is just the wrong thing to do, period.

If you want people to click on a specific ads pay for some clickthroughs to that page from adwords. May cost you a couple bucks to find out it is a 1 cent ad but at least you did not do anything WRONG.

It is very important to police ourselves #1. Lets not give people ideas like these--even tho it has been said before on other sites.

>Open AdSense account with fake information

>Giving advice like this, bothers me. (etc)

I think David didnīt mean to recommend that one should open an AS account with false identity, I believe David merely tried to state that hunting down high-paying keywords is a waste of time...


 7:27 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

To add another one:

My highest paying niches are indeed topics you wouldnīt expect to be very profitable. They are just niches that nobody believes to be extremely high-paying. Therefore MFAīs arenīt really interested in these areas and most advertisers are the real thing...
Some pages give me mostly 15 cent clicks (so ecpm is 150). I donīt know about you, but I believe that to be rather high-paying!


 7:50 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

You do?


 7:52 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

A friend of mine swears that her site about "prom dresses" makes her tons of money, despite the fact that it comes on top only in MSN and that TOP bid for the term is 30 cents. Come the prom time, girls search for prom dresses like crazy, clicking all links, checking out every site and every dress.

And no, I am not suggesting you cheat Google. In fact, there is no way to do that. Sooner or later they'll catch you (my bet is on SOONER). But it helps to SEE with OWN EYES that google in fact pays 3 cents on supposedly expensive keywords.

I personaly made few grands last year on my spyware removal site and I've never heard anyone say target "spyware removal" or "antispyware". It's crazy how much software developers pay for some keywords. It's not really crazy, usually about 1.20-1.40 max, but it's amazing how consistent over the dollar clicks are in this particular niche.

Forget the high-paying AdSense keyword crap - it's not true. You can make tons of money with unsexy keywords like Photoshop. What you want is not the niche where clicks are 30 bucks, what you want is a niche where there is SOOOOOO MUCH competition that you never get 5 cent clicks.

TiVo is another great niche I hear. Wheelchairs of certain kind. Not the crap you hear about. Not California Lawyers. Not Lead Paint. Not Asbestos Litigation.

Just do your work. Write about what you like. Write for people, not AdSense.


 8:04 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

Great. Now get ready for 5,000 more sites about prom dresses. This whole AdSense mania thing is really starting to irk me.


 8:15 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

As someone who also runs an Adwords account for a client with a lot of very expensive (legitimate) search phrases, and who gets a lot of what I'm sure are bogus clicks, it irks me too. This is why I turned off Content Network for all my Adwords clients.


 8:29 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

No, man, it won't happen. It's too difficult to make a site about prom dresses. If girls see MFA, they'll click back.

Consider this. One of the best niches for AdSense is "wheelchairs". Especially of certain kind. My buddy makes fantastic money on wheelchairs and electric scooters. I never could figure out why. Until he told me.

There are more expensive keywords, like Search Engine Optimization or California Lawyers. BUT, how many people who search for a California Lawyer will hire one? I mean, there is no such thing as a california lawyer. If you are in LA, you will hire a lawyer in LA. You may do research on the net, but you call next. Or never call, because you don't really need a lawyer you may need one. Same with SEO. You may do a search on the topic, but you aren't hiring anyone most likely.

But wheelchair? If you are searching for one, you need it in 30 days or less (handycapped people an exception). So you are going to order one online or call, but it's great business. Conversion rates are very high. That's what google loves and that's what advertisers love.

MFA for wheelchairs? Not gonna happen. Never seen one. There are no free articles on wheelchairs. There isn't really that much content to steal. People search for wheelchairs, they more or less know what they want. It's a perfect AdSense niche. I don't have a wheelchair site, 'cause I'm too dumb to create one. You can't hire writers on eLance to write about wheelchairs, this is something you really need to know.

This is the rule. Don't make a site for something that people search for. Make a site for something people are going to buy for sure.

Forex Trading - I have these ads bringing in around $5 a click


 9:42 pm on Mar 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

I have a very comprehensive site on wheelchairs. It has the most work, the best number of visitors of all my 15 niche sites. It also pays by far the worst! I wasted loads of energy (admitedly many years back) on that site! But I didnt do it for the money. Trust me there are MUCH better niches!

You just need to think a little about the sort of sites that have info on expensive items or industrial items, that have no webspace to display ads on! I worked that out years ago! Thibk about stuff like "industrial kilns" - there just are no information and review sites for all the thousands of variation.

You need to research the subject and build a real useful info site on the equipment you find isnt already represented. Forget about mass market stuff, because every man and his dog has a site on say "dvd reviews" and wheelchairs and disability stuff comes under this catogory too. There is already too much available real estate. There wasnt two years ago I admit! But those clicks now pay 5 or 10 cents max on a real and genuine original content site.

Search for expensive equipment that isnt already represented on search engines. No real estate. Thats where the money is. I have a freind thats into clay modelling. His hobby site gets really high average cpc. People searching for clay "machine" (unamed) for example...

That and photos of half naked women work rather well. I have a page (one) with that subject too! (my gf) its only one page, but it earns $50 a day average! Allmost all traffic (2k+ per day) comes from image search on google and yahoo on that one page.

To save me the effort...just what the hell are these "prom dresses" that keep appearing in the top of searches?

I'm a UK bloke, I don't understand it. Is it an American thing...what's all the excitement? Mummies dressing up their nubile daughters in skin-tight little black numbers?:-)

I'm not sure if it's only an American thing, but it is a high school thing here and it is quite a big affair. In the junior and senior year of high school (11th & 12th grade) they have these fancy-schmancy dances to attend (once per year). The girls dress up in their prettiest and sometimes very expensive dresses. When I was at that age my mom made my prom dress. I still have it but I have doubts that it still fits.
