Which is the Top Paying Adsense Keyword? Austin DWI. There are too many Highest Paying Adsense Keyword lists available on various websites. Moreover, keyword pricing are dynamic and keep changing. How these lists are prepared and how much the adsense publisher actually gets is truly still unknown.
Cyberwire maintains a list of top 500 higest paying Internet search keywords. It was last updated on June 29, 2006. I am talking about this list since they find these keyword prices using the Google’s AdWords tool and so that should be somewhat reliable. The result is presented in Canadian Dollars.
Can you actually earn so much per click? They explain –
First of all, let me tell you that you will never see a profit of $70/click credited to your AdSense account. These figures are what Google charges their advertisers. You as a publisher will only see a small percentage of this — I have seen upwards of $2-3 / click though, which is very good if you multiply that by 10 or 20 clicks a day. Traffic is the key.
It is well known that legal and loan services usually top the most expensive keywords lists. Mesothelioma was amongst the most popular keywords once. I was surprised to see that the most expensive keyword is “Austin DWI” at $82.95/click. I had never heard of that keyword combination before.
I presume by Austin we are talking about the City of Austin, Texas, USA. I looked up DWI which means “driving while intoxicated”, which is an offense committed by an individual who operates a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. I wonder if Austin has a higher incidence of DWI?
No wonder websites and blogs have started talking about Austin Texas DWI laywers and attorneys. A google search for Austin DWI results in 69000 results, but Technorati still shows only 1050 results so bloggers are yet to catch on the tip.
Remember that such lists are always dynamic and keyword prices are always changing…as I write this Austin DWI may no longer be the most expensive keyword phrase!
