Hi everyone, my log just doesn't have ads that pay high enough for my liking. I would like to start another site, hopefully on a topic I'm still interested in... which also has potential to make a decent amount of money thru adsense.

Is there anywhere that displays the adverage payment per click for ads based on subject area?

I want to scope out which topics have higher paying ads so hopefully I can target one of those segements... or at least be sure to avoid the topics which pay very little!

Thanks for any advice!

I think you need to observe with the tool like overture and search the keyword on google to see the competitiveness

Then why even bother posting? You did not contribute anything to this thread, other than wasting your time and wasting our own. If you have nothing to contribute, then don't post. We don't care if you have $1.4 clicks.

Back on topic now. I can say that financial-related websites have a good pay. The problem is getting good traffic. Entertainment-related sites receive peanuts and so does every other website out there that does not sell a product.

My advice is for you to think about a certain product/service that you like and make a good site around it.

Don't just go for the rate per click -your need to consider click through rate. For example my travel site gets more per click than other subjects but comes out worse in the end because the click through rate is so low.

Even if you had the highest paying keyword, it is no guaratee that you would receive the top publisher payment for it due to various things such as relevance to the keyword area itself.

Smart pricing would have its say.

Wasting time looking for a 'high paying keyword ' is a typical newbie mistake, which I have also made.

I finally found a high paying keyword, created content around it only to find that advertisers for that high paying keyword had 'content network turned off' OR they were excluding my site from their adWords interface. All I got was MFA with 2-3 cents clicks. What a waste of time!

I now focus on what I can do best, the clicks and traffic develops slowly. I am happy with 10 cents cliks and sometimes manage a few 50 cents and 80 cents clicks also. With a decent volume, it turns out to be a good aggregate figure.

Try to focus on quality and quantity of your website and forget about chasing high paying clicks.

Of course some subjects like financial services, lawyers, real estate, stocks etc pay well , but not everyone can create an 'authority' site on these topics.

You may keep experimenting and will hopefully settle down fast.... There are so many variables in the AdSense and AdWords program that it is almost impossible to GET RICH QUICK....unless you are very very lucky and very very smart..

It's a mugs game chasing keywords. High paying keywords have everybody and their dog knocking up crappy sites. You would be competing against them for the same piece of pie.

The reasons ads don't pay well are complex. I'd suggest a browse through the forum library to learn a bit more on this. But to start you off, if your site doesn't convert into sales for the advertisers then Google will smart price your entire account.

Is there anywhere that displays the adverage payment per click for ads based on subject area?

By being an adwords advertiser it's possible to know what it costs for an ad to be shown in content, but not on any particular site. In any case, what we get paid per click may be vastly different to that thanks to smart pricing. Therefore there isn't anywhere you can go to learn how much per click you will get.

I want to scope out which topics have higher paying ads so hopefully I can target one of those segements... or at least be sure to avoid the topics which pay very little!

It's a mugs game chasing keywords. Oh I already said that - never mind!
