    This one time I found a leprechaun, no for real, it was great he gave me his pot of golds and we danced over the rainbow.

    I found one yesterday that Market Samurai was saying it was £178 ($277) per click.
    Thought 'WTF' and decided to find out what the keyword was about.
    Let's just say there's only one advertiser in google.

    Market Samurai can come up with some bullshit at times...

    I know, and I keep looking for that perfectly preserved Harley Davidson 45 trike that someone parked in their garage and threw a tarp over in 1965.

    If there's only one advertiser why the hell would he be willing to pay that insane amount for a keyword that has absolutely no competition? AdWords is about bidding on keywords, so he can bid the minimum and he'll still be on top, if he's the only one.

    That's why i said Market Samurai can come up with some bullshit at times.
    It doesn't make sense and is too good to be true anyway, so it must be an error when fetching the information from google :S
    Either way, there'd be no point targeting a keyword like that with only one advertiser :p

    The troll-fu is weak with OP.

    Not a leprechaun, a fairy, and I just gave you plain pot, the rainbow was simply a secondary effect :p .

    You can use this kind of CPC just to test out how many searches a keyword gets.

    Since the ads are ugly as hell(you don't want to pay $250 a click right? ), no one will click but since it has high CPC it will be the first AD so based on the views of the ad you can tell almost an exact number of searches that keyword gets.

    I'm glad i've made experts to laugh :D
    I was actually browsing through categories in G keyword tool and sort them by CPC. This one came up as highest for me, so i just shared the "knowledge". I'm not into paid traffic much, and sorry to say there's no epic story behind it.

    keyword is [battle on snowshoes] if anyone's interested in monetizing it :D
