    Found EMD domain with 1000 exact searches. CPC average of 6 USD. Also second keyword which has a part of the domain name in it with a CPC of 9 USD.

    I have had succes ranking alot of theese domains lately, and I see no problem in ranking this domain within a few months. Until now I have been doing affiliate links and not even bothered with serious AdSense. After finding this domain, I'm gonna do that though.

    So with an average CPC of 6 USD, I can expect to get 3 USD CPC right? Or is it lower?

    How much can I expect to earn on this, any with former experience?

    The search term is something business search to find someone to do a certain service for them. So I guess the clickrate on AdSense could be high.

    Yea, just because Adwords keyword tool says $6/cpc doesn't mean you will get a $6 CPC. It all depends on other factors. I have had sits which according to Google would get $20+/cpc and ended up with like $0.25 clicks.

    I'm sure there is someone else here with more adsense experience that can give you a better idea. But this is why I no longer mess with adsense.

    Sometimes Google will display a bunch of generic ads with low cpc also so every ad displayed won't be high dollar.

    Fuck Google then :p Well it says "What they have to pay.." and with high competetion I can expect related ads can't I?

    And it seems like all searches related to my new sites all have really high CPC.

    Off topic: For whom can it be worth paying up to 9 USD per click. Makes no sense to me.

    go to spyfu.com and put the keyword there and look for COUNT OF ADVERTISERS. if there are many then u will get good $ per click AND if there are few advertisers only then few cents per click.

    You never know what Giggle will give you when it comes to clicks...as mentioned previously...I've had sites in the high end mesothelioma niche where clicks are worth heaps and yet still see mainly 0.25-0.75 a click.

    I've often wondered whether Google defrauds us all as to their share of the clicks...seriously how would you know what the advertiser has paid for it in reality.

    The CPC you see on google keyword tool is meant for adword users, the real cost per click for adsense users is found in the "contextual targeting tool" of google keyword tool. And its only when you logged in that you can see this. However most of the keywords I find there are way more than $1.

    This. We would never know.

    My adsense sites have cpc keywords over 40$ each and we only get between 1.30 and 2 per click.

    $6 CPC is for Search not Content. John1444 is correct in his reply. CPC that you see in Google Keyword Tools is what people are paying to show thier ad when someone searches Google.

    CPC for ads to be shown on blogs or website is different. Also Google shows ads based on user's cookies/habits NOT what your site is about. If I was searching and reading about "Golf Ball" and then somehow end up at your site about "Pigeon Racing". Google will show ads about "Golf Balls" not "Pigeon Racing" So if you thought "Pigeon Racing" CPC is $20 and you are only getting $2 per click, then this is the reason. You don't need to beleive this but this is the truth regardless what these gurus claim.

    ^You have to enable it in the "Columns" button on the right side of the screen.
