I know of site where the average cost per click on the SERP is about $3.00 dollar with a ton of competition and traffic, but the owners of the First, Second or Third sites only make about $1,000 dollars a month each. If you paid them a fixed $1000 dollars a month you could replace all thier Adsense units with Ads directly to your site.
I heard the Number One Serp entry get's as many click as Number one Ad in the Serps.
And with a person you can get a flat fee, and negoiate a long term deal.
So explore and research the content network.
