Highest paying AdSense keyword is a reasonable target for a lot of Internet marketers. Or is it?
Later I will add a list of the current highest payout AdSense keywords I could find
And you may wonder why share such a lucrative resource
Because I don't use it!
I know it seems sensible to build information sites based on these high paying AdSense keywords in a bid to increase your revenue from AdSense.
For example, a website based on a keyword like 'Chicago personal injury lawyer' could garner $40 or more for a single AdSense click, if the list is to be believed
Let's be more conservative and say $20. With that kind of site all you need is 5 clicks a day to make a reasonable income.
Problem is the competition to get high SERPs position for this keyword phrase is bound to be steep.
And we all know you need visitors to get clicks.
Let's take an average made for AdSense website with a click through rate of 5%. [This is a little generous. Most webmasters report a click through rate of 1 to 2% but we will use 5% for our little illustration]. This means to make your 5 clicks a day, you need 100 unique visitors to your site a day.
Now in itself, this is not a big ask
But fire up your google keyword suggestion tool, it shows that the month of March yielded a grand total of 140 for that keyword phrase.
And you can be certain that some of those will be webmasters like you and I doing keyword research
Not looking so favorable after all
So maybe going after these high payout AdSense keywords is not the best way forward for the average niche marketer
The compromise is to find a keyword that garners maybe a dollar a click but gets a ton of searches.
That makes for better return on investment of time spent in generating the website and optimizing it for the search engines
Well at least that's my experience
Not mine. I got it from a forum I participate in. The forum is http://www.tareeinternet.com/forum/
