I think if you do a keyword search (Google AdWords is a good place to start) you'll find the most popular and the most expensive/inexpensive ones. If you have any idea of using this advertising technique, you need to know how to research keywords anyway.

Don't know about golf PLRs.

It can be as little as a few cents to as much as several dollars per click. Things like attorney related niches pay very high, and games related pay very low.

Leverage Facebook and YouTube and get lots of traffic with Responsive Video from phpLD. Offer SEO to your local market with phpLD Local. Best of all get a free domain, hosting, and phpLD installed at net zero cost.

Hi Eric,

The payout from Adsense is somewhat random. You can look at the Google Adwords tool and see what it costs for a top position for that keyword. You can then look at earning about 30 - 40% of the value of that click. Sometimes less. Once upon a time you could use that as an asbolute rule - not so anymore.

Basically any of the financial services, mortgage, credit card and money related niches still pay out quite well in terms of maybe getting $1 - $5 per click. Some people still report up to $10 a click in those type of niches but they're very competitive.

Computer related and technology niches are next down the ladder with 50c - $1.50 per click in some categories.

Next down from there would be evergreen niches like household decoration, plants, golf, sports, cosmetics etc. These are the 25c - 50c per click niches.

After that it's the random stuff that people expect to make money from that pay out 5c - 10c per click.

These are just my own opinions and are based on 3 years of adsense publishing in a broad spectrum of niches. I'm try to move away from Adsense into infoproducts, clickbank and pure affiliate marketing. The margins are WAY higher for the same level of traffic. Best to never have all the eggs in one basket :-)

The rule of thumb is 50% of the ad click goes to Google, 50% to you. It does depend on the industry dramatically and the competitiveness of the terms your page is optimized for. For some of my monititzed sites that run adsense I have seen $2-3 clicks which I assume were $4-6 bids by the advertiser.

Research the niche you are in, find the most expensive terms, optimize your page around those terms and promote that page directly.

Oh and aim for volume traffic - more eyes = more clicks = more cash.

90% of the niche sites I develop recover their own costs after 90 days. After that it's really just pure profit :-)

There is no average. And even topics recommended as "high paying" may not pay highly on your own site.

That's because adsense pays based on niche, competition - AND on the quality of your site. What is often ignored by those starting with Adsense is that it pays nothing unless you have visitors to your site. Focus on niche and keyword research and site promotion.

Adsense can be a good passive income source for well placed sites but is not the easy answer to earning that it was several years ago and takes time to build.

They will pay you about half as much as the advertiser is spending on the click

If you look at the "smartpricing" model the content network which would be you is paying pennies, unless you are converting clicks into sales

so all in all pennies where it use to be dollars

you have to have lots of pages up to make any real money anymore, there is other places you can get paid dollars with easier terms

Since Adwords started to allow advertisers the option to decline serving campaigns on the content network- (Web Sites).

Most of the smartest and highest paying Adword users rarely use the content network for their ads.

Unless your site is a targeted traffic monster, and advertisers actively seek out and choose your site for high end promotions, it will be pennies per click in the beginning.

Even publishers with millions of web pages have experienced sharp declines in Adsense revenues over the last couple of years.

Adsense today is just a small supplemental income for most, and those with high traffic sites usually opt for higer margin CPA advertising.

Yes, there are a few exceptions, but not many.

Hope that explains it a little!

Not true.

Many other factors enter into Google's equation - and they aren't telling what the equation is.

Given the varied responses so far, might I suggest that the OP takes this thread over to the ADSENSE forum?

There are probably more experts there who could be of greater help.

Even in a high paying niche, if the clicks don't result in enough conversions, Google will place lower tier ads on your site. This means site A may be converting well and resulting in $1 clicks while site B in the same exact niche may be attracting poor quality clicks and thus only averaging $.10 a click.

Normally I choose my keyword for adsense site based on google keyword external tools. I onlychoose keywords which it has average CPC of at least $10 for adwords. I had tested a few and it show good result. At least $2.00 for one click.

In my experience average does not exists. Between 9 pages there is the one that pays $0.75 and there is another that pays $3 max.

I have never found my success with adsense but then again I got burnt out from trying to put up all those sites with good content, not very fun writing a million articles a day imo. But I personally did find that for me Micro Niche Finder helped out alot becuase it tells the keywords, top adwords ppc, and SOC (strength of competition) so you can find some high paying keywords that are not hard to dominate the listings for.

It is against TOS to give out details, but I can tell you that creating a site that generates $3/day is easy, but creating one that generates $300/day is hard.

That said your CTR will probably be around 1% and the web site should get at least 1,000 uniques per day. So 10 clicks at a dollar each will net you ten dollars per day or about $300/mo not bad for a small 100 page website.
