    I had this idea and i am not sure if its viable but here is what i had in mind.

    So what IF..

    Step 1: Create a general navigation page with subjects listed to it (hyperlinking to another page within the website).
    It's kind of a grey zone, but technically you are not pulling traffic to the adsense pages but to the main navigation page. They go to your adsense page from there on their own, without encouraging them or forcing them by a popup etc.

    So to finalize my theory.. Imagine you buy low cpc Bing Ads related to the "law" keyword. People end up on your navigation page.. then they go to your adsense page. Its like a funnel.

    Do you guys think this could work?


    PS. also does CPC still matter at adsense? I mean if you have a high CPC subject on as content.. do clicks at that adsense page still payout more?

    You'll never turn a profit like this though. AdSense arbitrage usually depends on your site pushing AdSense ads hard, because you're paying for traffic yet making only cents per click, so you basically need ads right on the page your PPC traffic is coming into AND you need little/weak content and strong ad placement to really encourage people to click through on your ads. That's also pretty much the reason this is against the ToS, you essentially need a "made for adsense" site to make money at this.

    Still, I doubt it will turn into profit, but you won't know until you test it.

    People have been trying arbitrage for more than 10 years. Your idea is no different than what others have suggested and tried. There's no way you can make money at it. The reason is very simple and can be shown mathematically.

    Why are you not putting the Adsense add directly on to your landing page? As long as you are driving Bing traffic there is not problem at all. However your plan has to fundamental problems:
    1. Bing ads in tier 1 countries are not cheap. In more competitive niches you will not get any traffic for less than 0.20 a click
    2. Your adsense CTR will not be higher than 10% if your place your ads in a white hat way

    So what I am basically saying is that you need to spend $2 to get one click on Adsense.
