If you are thinking about making a site out of high paying keywords, don't bother basically.

Firstly you need to understand *why* advertisers are prepared to pay high for clicks. The ONLY reason they will do this is because the clicks covert into sales for them. They DO NOT pay high clicks just to inflate the bank balances of publishers - especially those that put up crummy sites based on keywords.

Advertisters might be prepared to pay hansomely for clicks, but they will ONLY pay high on sites that historically convert for them. They are able to target specific sites for high paying clicks, and smart pricing will ensure that other sites in the content area only get what the click is worth.

If you put up a scummy site based on keywords, you might get 5c per click if you are lucky. We had a thread recently from someone dissapointed that he'd built a site round what he thought would pay him $82 per click only to find the clicks generated virtually nothing.

You're doing fine up to now cause your question is usually much more anticipated with offensive replies.
That is cause the infamous K-question (asking for high paying keywords) is associated with trying to get-rich-quick by asking for business secrets that some of the people in this forum took years to research and develop.

However, I believe there is nothing wrong with the question itself. It is fully legit to investigate methods of making more Adsense money, as long as these methods are within the law and the Adsense TOS.
I dare to state that 100% of us is in this for the money, the more the better. So there is no point in attacking people who wish to get a piece of the action. They just want the same as all of us.

The point is, as said before, anyone having valuable goodies, in this case knowledge, will not give that away for free or even for some quick change.
This forum is about learning by sharing and receiving.
It takes some time to get settled into that process. I am only a few months with this forum so I might not be such a valuable source of info.

However, I learned a few things about keywords.
There is no static list of high paying keywords.
The list, if there is any, is changing all the time. On top of that a keyword that works for my website might not work for others. It depends on so many things that anyone trying to make you believe such a list exists is a fraud, beware!
However, use your imagination.
What if you were an advertiser, for what kind of clicks would you be prepared to pay money?
The answer is that advertisors are likely to pay more money for clicks from people that are ready to order their products. People that are ready to order products are people that just have been informed properly by a quality content website and are satisfied by the information they received. So my advice would be to write an online article about something you are a real expert on. Really try to write the best article on the entire Internet about this topic. Be specific and targeted. The more you focus on very specific details, the better. In the meanwhile, be sure there are enough advertisers related to this topic.

If your article is ready, publish it and paste your adsense-code. You might find your high paying keyword this way. It worked for me...

It really is more about "how" you write about an item or subject.

For example, if I mention "3-ring binder" I will likely get ads for 3-ring binders and similar items. I doubt highly that those ads will pay diddly squat as my main topic wasn't about binders at all. It was just a couple of words that came up while writing about something totally unrelated.

If I were to write an article specifically about a "3-ring binder", with all the information that I can find and write about the item, then the ads that get shown might actually pay a decent amount.

That was a very funny and witty post indeed.

Gonna write an article about that right away...

[Note: If you already have a website, these comments are for you, especially if you started out with a hobby site. If you just want to build a get rich quick built for Adsense site, they may not be much help.]

I prefer to think of threads like this in terms of....

The Best Paying Keywords Available to You

So what are they?

For most of us, that depends on the topic of our websites.

OK fine, how do I find them?

First; Surf on over to the Adsense pages at Google.com and read anything you can find about Smart Pricing. You might just find a good clue there.

Second, after you've read the Smart Pricing stuff, grab a beverage of your choice and sit back and REALLY THINK about the topic of your website.

Think about every aspect of the subject that could possibly be relevant to your topic. I'm not talking just about the obvious stuff here. The obvious stuff is important, obviously.

But there may well be some aspects of your topic that are seldom discussed, or even thought about. Stuff on the fringes, stuff you might not see on every other site in your category.

Now go look at your site, are all those aspects you thought up there?

If they are not, or even if they are, go back and read the Smart Pricing stuff again.

Now sit down and write, or rewrite, some relevant pages.

As long as you are working on your pages, take another look at the heat map. Implement it as much as possible.

None of this is likely to net you $50,.00 clicks.

But there might well be, for example, some $1.00, 2.00 or even 3.00 ads available for quite a few sites with an $0.10 average EPC.

It doesn't take many of those clicks to really boost your income.

Did I mention reading up on Smart Pricing?

It's simple: products with high margins will make the most. Legal, finances, health related. Also often "buy expensive widget" will make a lot more then "expensive widget".

Getting traffic on high paying subjects can be very hard, finding a somewhat lower but still good paying niche with not much competition is likely easier.

Best resource I've seen for high-dollar keywords is IotaWeb - has a nice comparison between Adwords and Overture values (which is educational)....

But, yaw-- don't just pick the highest dollar ones and spam the world. Pick a high dollar topic where you think you can contribute decent content...

webwright, I have noticed you've been doing some name dropping for a keyword search engine. You might want rethink that, since it's against the WW TOS to post specific information that can lead to your site.

Certainly not intentional - if you do a search on my name, you'll see that I've "namedropped" several sites... I don't think any of 'em are particularly promotional. I didn't even link 'em-- which would be pretty lousy marketing (if that were my aim).

If anyone feels that the any of my posts should be nuked, they can feel free to do so. Wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit.

I could give you my personal top secret list of high ranking keywords, but then I would have to kill you. I am taking appointments in the year 2513 for wealth/dealth packages. Take a number, and walk to the back of the room. Oh yes. Bring a lunch.
