Highest Paying Adsense Keywords 2011

In 2009 I wrote an article about the Highest Paying AdSense keywords, good to see that not too many have changed.

Google Adsense is webmasters dream. Just sit back, write some good content and watch the checks roll in. Right? Not exactly. Finding the profitable content ideas is pretty tricky. Never mind that finding profitable keywords is hard too. Yet you have to start somewhere. Here are some keywords pulled after extensive Google research for our Top Paying Adsense Keyword 2011 post.

Obviously from this list it is pretty easy to see what pays well. However on this blog I average around $0.88 / click.  To be fairly honest I am going to attach the following adsense report that show two of my websites and their respective ad sense numbers.




Here we see two sites. The date period is from Dec 3 to Dec 7th. The 2.88% click through rate is awesome, their are a lot of amateur webmasters that would be very happy with that number. According to this research, earning $23.74 per thousand page views, so this makes me think how much traffic do I need to earn a living from my blog. A LOT More! I am working on this and it is getting better. I would be ecstatic to be able to pull  200,000 page views a month. Entirely possible, my infrastructure will support more. The hard part, what to write about, that people search for, and that you can rank in the first three places. That is the trick, that is a steep learning curve, but once you have it figured out, the rest is icing on the cake. Me, lol I am still figuring it out.

How to optimize WordPress for Adsense.

adsense-300x246If your like me and have been working on several blogs, or domains trying to build traffic through keyword writing. Then this might be a helpful read for you. I have done a considerable amount of research, and feel that I have a pretty good grasp on what and where people click. The three highest performing ad units are the 336×280 large rectangle, the 300×250 inline rectangle and 160×600 wide skyscraper. Consider this when selecting which theme you are going to use.  Be unique if you can, customize the theme so it stands apart from the rest.

The most successful link color is blue. This has to do with the roots of the Internet where all web sites used blue hyperlinks.If you use other link colors make Adsense links the same as your normal links.

As a general rule blend (no border, same background) your Adsense units if your website has light colors and contrast (border, contrasting background) the units if you are using a dark color scheme.

Ads in context should not have borders, while ad units in sidebars can use borders to attract the eye.

Test, test and test some more. Each website is different so test with different colors and formats and keep track of the results to help fine tune your Adsense earnings.

SEO Consulting – How I make it work for your local business

process-seoAre you a local business? By local I mean does the bulk of your sales come from face to face dealings with John or Jane Public? If you answered yes this article is for you.

More and more local business sales are triggered by consumers researching through Google and Yahoo, looking to purchase specific products and services. Consumers are using search engines to look for things that you sell or the services that you offer. They are looking at where to buy locally, who’s selling it, how much does it cost?  If you’re not targeting your potential audience in a specific local market, how are those consumers going to find you?  The answer is simple and disappointing, they’re not going to.

As with any online project, there are several factors to consider in a local SEO/PPC campaign. Strategy helps define the businesses goals, it also will help determine from an SEO experts POV, whether or not you can actually benefit from our efforts. There are some businesses that will not benefit from SEO expenditures. Let me tell you that I will be the first to point this out to you if you are one of them. I will not waste my time or yours, trying to convince you that your toothbrush recycling business will get a million visitors in a week. I’d prefer to work on a realistic project where both parties are happy with the outcome.
