I am sure this has been asked a thousand times over but is there a correlation between search postion and payout?
I have a lot of pages that are place between 10-40 and i think with some effort I can get them all over the folder, top 10 eventually but I am not sure if it is worth the effort.
I am discourage with adsense because I get crappy clicks, pennies per click. I looked up my key word and i was suprised to see that the top 1-3 positions though got 50-80 cents per click as a bid. Why the disparity?
Does google reward just the high placing searches? I have read many posts about this but have not confirmed myself as I am not lucky enough to have ever had my terms place that high. Plus I would have to create a bunch of custom channels to overserve this.
Can anyone from experience tell us the difference in payout between position #5 and say #15 or #25 even?
So if I have site searches averaging in the #15-#25 range would I see a big increase if I got them in the #5-#10 range?
If you're buried deep down in the SERPS you're less likely to notice this when you're just getting a handful of visitors per a term per a day.
At one point I was seeing
Elbonia Blue Widgets coming in the top 5 but
Blue Widgets in Elbonia not even making the first 100
Some serious optimisation work and a site map put them both on page 1 but still 8 places apart.
