I've heard about niches which pays more like : Insurance, Healthy, etc etc.. So my question is , is it true that niches like healthy niches or insurance will pay you more than 5$ or 10$ for just one click ?!

They pay what the market will bear... the winning bid, just as all other niches do.

Advertisers pay for a captive audience. And prices are further driven by supply and demand.

If you can create a site that engages users for a niche where such content is rare, then you will succeed. If you create just another blog for say the insurance niche because some players report that they earn a high CPC then prepare to fail. Granted, you can get lucky and get an occasional 5$ click but these will be far and few between. If you are in a niche where there are many other equally useless blogs pushing the same useless content on the same un-engaged user base, you will not succeed even if the CPC is high. Chances are that Google will not even bother ranking your site in the first place.

It's true only if your audience converts. If it does, then there may very well be more profitable revenue options available (Google takes 31% after all). If it doesn't, you'll soon be smart-priced or blocked by advertisers and the well will dry up pretty quickly.

My highest CPC by far is gambling, then dating. Not my favorite themes but they bring in too much not to allow.

It all depends on your traffic. If it is high quality and does well for advertisers, then you can make that per click. If the traffic quality is poor or mediocre, you will not make that per click.

The highest CPC is usually in lower traffic niches. Each genuine lead is valuable but there aren't very many of them.

However if the quantity of genuine leads rises then the CPC will tend to go down.

It's called supply and demand.

So far people are very helpful on this forum and i really aprecciate it , so my question is does it pay healthy niche like earlier , because last year i've worked on google adsense with a technology niche and the cpc was 1$ 2$ sometimes 3$ and then i heard that healthy niches will pay more than technology , sorry if it sounds like amateur question but i really need to know that because i work in a different way with ADSENSE .

What does it mean to "work in a different way with AdSense"? Is it against the terms of the service?

Haha maybe yes maybe not , i used my method as first to make more visitors on my blog from US through facebook&pinterest and then i used social media to ask people from US to click into the adverts it sounds crazy but yea that was my method long time ago .. for example some people have clicked on my blog , 2-3 different ads but it was okay , it was not something bad this method.

Not bad for earnings maybe but it is against AdSense terms and policies and you could lose your account pretty quickly. AdSense is not like some others and their policy is "one strike and you're out" and they mean "forever".

I suggest you read through the policies before you kill your account. They don't pay anything when they catch you asking people to click.

Yea i know that , but only if they repport you in adsense its dangerous , otherwise it will be everything okay, but the point of this question is , if healthy niches are paying enough or not .

You don't think it's just the tiniest bit risky to pose the question in a well-regarded public forum that Google loves (based on how quickly new WebmasterWorld posts get indexed)? Just because there's no GoogleDude by that name, doesn't mean nobody connected with G### ever reads it.

I'd say the chances of "everything being okay" with your plans are slim. And yes, Google is in here reading your post.

@Notird, if you select the highest paying advertiser and scam with your spam as proposed above, they will be the first to report you. I am certain that once an advertiser that is willing to spend 5$ per click to get a users to his/her site, sees that fake users are suddenly flooding in from one specific adsense account they will no hesitate to report the invalid clicks. Those clicks will be clawed back before you can say "minimum balance", and your account will be banned.

And if you are sincere about creating a legitimate blog/website then you are approaching this completely wrong. To get top dollars from advertisers in a given domain you must be an expert in that domain and deliver high quality content. So let's say that pharmaceuticals provide a big payout. Great, you create a blog about pharma, the only problem is you know nothing about this topic, and any content you create will be sub-par at best. The big advertisers will avoid your site, and you will be left with penny paying celebrity news sites as advertisers, despite being in a high paying niche.

My point is that the topic or niche is not halfway as important as the value you bring by creating your blog. Maybe you should write a blog about the latest and greatest technique for scamming and spamming Adsense using social media.

In short, yes certain niche have much better CPC and RPM. Anything health or financial related services, followed by consumer products. There are quite a few blogs elsewhere that talks about how to track down that information.

In long, smart price will target those unrelated audiences automatically, you will still get paid pennies on the dollar despite those seemingly high CPC's. Especially if those clicks do not convert.

When you did what you did, you would probably notice that you got paid pretty high with your initial pushes, and subsequent clicks will be like pennies. You will probably get hit with month end invalid click adjustments too. I think this phenomenon is heavily enforced 3~4 years ago. So your tactic did not work too well back then, and will most likely bear much less fruit in the current environment. Google is now much better at tracking visitors and CTR intentions.

Social media arbitrage can probably work, as with adsense and any other traffic generation methods, if you are able to tackle the right audiences with the right content. But then again, watch out for smart price, it can easily put you in the red if you are not good at it.

In my opinion, it's petty money for a ton of work that are plenty of risk in conjunction with adsense. If I am running your business model, I would look into affiliates and get people to sign up for stuff.

About 2 years ago, on some crowd microtask platform, some dude posted asking people to click ads on his site - for a fixed payment.
His explanation was that he was testing out functionality and implementation of the ads (yeah, sure).
He set up a few crappy blogs on Health, Insurance and College, with about 10 articles each.
I was pissed off by this, as it was clearly ad fraud, but the average person there didn't get it. I minded my business initially.

However, what prompted me to act was finding out he wasn't even paying the people who went ahead and completed the task innocently.
So, his scam was a double edged sword. Max profit!

I immediately copied the links to all his sites and emailed Google, explaining what he was doing.
His Adsense account was obliterated in less than 24 hrs.
Sure, people like him would obtain another account in the black market, but it felt good tossing that wrench in his wheels.

Good for you, Mr_Jefe. Scumbags like that are only stealing from advertisers and, by extension, from legitimate publishers like us. I congratulate anyone who takes them down.

Re: sites set up purely to milk rich niches... Some might bluff for a while or earn OK for a month or two. But it never lasts unless the publisher is committed to the niche AND able to produce excellent content.

Funny how the OP starts a new thread days later needing help for his now suspended account. Big surprise.
