Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I was wondering if anyone knew of those "highly competitive keywords" which some Adwords users pay up to like $5.00 per click.
If there is no definitive list, maybe we can just give what we think our highly competive, high paying, keywords to have show up on your adsense.
But then I thought, what kind of ad's will show up on Google Adsense for a joke related site? Probably not too high paying ones.
I know I shouldn't let Google Adsense productivity affect whether I make a site or not, but I wan't to make a successful, *money making* site for once in my life. :)
I run a jokes site and I am getting one targeted ad, while others are either half-relevant or completely irrelevant
Here are some good paying keywords:
Vacation, Education, Gifts, Investing, Medicine, Money
Your best bet would be an investing site (if you know about it), people are willing to give away thier money, advertisers like that.
but I wan't to make a successful, *money making* site for once in my life. :)
You could only know the overall trend but have no control on the specific time/location/visitor. So, maybe it would not accomplish your goal.
I think the best/foundamental way is to build high-quality content site and create traffic and indirectly make more revenue.
Don't forget, the bottom line is passion.
I completely agree with Hunter. In order to get AdSense revenue, you have to build a completely content-driven site - with lots and lots of content that is better than most of the other sites out there on the same subject, then you have to somehow get the visitors to your site, rather than the competing sites.
If you don't like the topic, it will be much harder to do, and you will be completely sick of Widgets or whatever subject you choose as an AdSense moneymaker. So choose a subject that you can stand to live and breathe for several months while it gets there ;)
