    Hey people, I been doing good with CB as I posted a screenshot of my earnings earlier and looking to diversify my income with good old adsen$e. My problem is my CPC I'm getting is penny clicks, 5 cents, sometimes a $1, etc. The keywords are not ranking but I'm using YT, pinterest and other social media accounts to drive traffic. How do I get the CPC based on the google keyword tool. I get about 100 visitors a day and earning about $6.00 a week:(In your experience how many visitors per month for a 1k a month in earnings. Thanks

    It highly depends on your niche and ads target. The common high paying ones are out in public hence take a look at cpc before defining the desired amount.

    If you are looking forward to increasing your impression rate and the money made, put the ads into the text.

    This has always worked for me well :)

    High niches are just one of the very first step. What ads target means is that it highly correlates with your content as well as the ad placement that defines impression.

    So you are getting $6 for 700 visitors?
    That's around $8.50 RPM...

    In my opinion that's quite high...

    The key to getting a higher CPC encompasses many different factors. You need to think about it in terms of being the advertiser on the other end. Some of the higher paying niches are: insurance, finance, legal, travel, careers, home-improvement, health/fitness. Once you pick a niche you need to define the best paying keywords within that niche and focus on using them in your content. You would want to have dynamic phrases in your content since advertisers' compete for them too. You will also want to have a domain name that has your niche in it and the main keywords for that niche (preferably combined as a phrase).

    Advertisers like to create "text and display" ads for their campaigns, and as such there is more competition for those units resulting in higher CPCs. In addition, they like to use certain size ad units, thus, creating more demand for them and paying more for the sites that have spots for them. Advertisers also pay higher CPCs once a new day begins for them as their daily budget is refreshed. As the day continues the CPCs will lower and once night time hits they are at their lowest. That is problematic when a site is only getting organic traffic but can easily be manipulated to your advantage if you're purchasing traffic :)

    In closing, you want to think in terms of what the advertisers' are thinking and position yourself into a situation where they are paying more for your ad placements.

    Regards!

    I have better experience with Google Adsense & various social sites traffic. Remember the number of your daily earnings depends on various things:

    - Your Referral site
    - The search keywords
    - Your visitors country
    - How much time he spent on your site
    - Which platform did your visitors uses.
    - Targeted/ non-targeted ads.

    and there are a lot of things that varies your earnings. Anyway, there is a hidden trick that is used by most of the adsense publishers using iphone. You may earn $50 with only 1k visitors with the iphone trick. And sometimes only a few bucks with your 10K traffic using the natural earnings flow.

    Best of Luck!
