I have been recently selling websites on Flippa(really good money), and I started to monetize some of my websites using Google Adsense. The screen shot below shows my adsense account, today so far with 66 Page Views and only 3 clicks, I generated $5.54 dollars. $1.85 CPC, which is pretty good for a new site, and some days I make more than that.
As you can see I blurred out my publishers id and my email, also the website that is making all of this money was created 01/01/2012 and I added Google Adsense on the 8th if I am not mistaken. This website is pretty much a simple wordpress site, that has many different keywords, and may different topics.
I was looking up some thing called "Google High Paying Keywords" and there is a list of keywords that pays over $100 dollars. Now, before I go into this, I will like to say that it is very rare that you will get that much from Google Adsense so you should get those get rich quick thoughts out of your head.
Well anyway, one of those top keywords were "Mesothelioma" which pays around $80 dollars CPC. So after seeing this, I decided to test this little Keyword out... It wouldn't take me long to create a site and get a domain name.
The Mesothelioma site that I create last night generated 2 Clicks giving me a total of $3.06 for those clicks.
Now, I have much more sites below but those are not about this topic and I do not feel like blurring out all of the sites that I am monetizing with Adsense.
Well as you can see I didn't make $80 - $100 dollars per click, but the site is still new. Not saying that it will, I have did some test, and I haven't seen a lot of Mesothelioma Ads come up on my website. Also if you look above you will see that "Maine Mesothelioma Attorney" has $201.47 CPC, but if you look at the traffic it is horrible. Also you have to remember Google Adwords, and Google Adsense CPC may be total different.
Now I am not sure how this works but I am guessing here!!! Advertisers may pay Over $80 dollars a click on Adwords, but advertisers for Adsense are looking to pay less because of publishers creating dirt content.
HOW TO MAKE THIS MUCH OR MORE?!?!
1. Think of something that you like to do, have 5 different things in mind and start narrowing them down.
I say have 5 Different things because most of the things you like, more people will like also. They don't have to be unique, but if they are then the better.
2. Think of topics, or ideals that will help your website.
You need ideals, you need topics, you can't just have a website without content.
3.Visit Google and search Keyword Tool.
The first link that comes up should be the Google Adwords Keyword Tool. You need to click on that.
4. Search for you topic.
This will tell you how many people search for your topic/ideal on Google. This will also tell you the CPC and how much competition you have. Each keyword is good for you to use, less competition and higher searches are the best in my opinion.
A few topics I will be picking up this month:
These are just a few keywords that I am able to talk about easy and create some great content. You don't have to go out of the way an create a fancy website. What I usually do, is use wordpress and create a simple website that talks about my topic. The website that I talked about earlier(not Mesothelioma) was a website with many topics and keywords.
Of course I will not have Hosting, Gaming, Dating, Drop Ship, MMORPG, Anime, and Health altogether on one website. You can do Gaming, MMORPG, and Anime all on one website. This will give you much better results, but that is just an example of what I will do.
If you have a website where people come and create content such as a Forum/Message Boards then you might be able to generate a little more depending on guidelines of Google. I have yet to create a forum, simply because I like creating fast websites that I can monetize within a week to a month and sell. With Forums I will need an amp amount of members to even begin to try an sell it.
There are also some serious blackhat methods out there that can get you legal clicks, and a great CTR. These methods do work and some you can trust. Now, everyone knows how Google is about Banning people from Adsense so I will not mention any blackhat methods because I do not want to be blamed for it.
I will be soon releasing a website that will help you with clicks and that can generate a amp amount of click per month. But as for right now, you should do it the old fashion way. Create a simple site(Not Going Through That), Ad some Adsense, and Get Traffic. You shouldn't really trust those people who say they can bring 1,000s of unique visitors to your site, because they surely can, and they will end up getting your Adsense Account banned. I know you have seen, on Forums where someone says "Selling Traffic, Adsense Safe." That's because more and more people use these cheap companies to generate untargeted traffic, DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE ADSENSE!!!
There are many different sites out there about SEO, and how SEO works. Look them up, and figure out what you need to start receiving more and more traffic. With traffic comes clicks, with clicks comes money.
UNTIL GOOGLE BANS YOU!!! :)
