    Hey guys,

    I'm kinda new to adsen$e and made $5 for the week so far. I'm getting a lot of 5cent and 10cent clicks. My keywords CPC tells me they range from $1.50-$5.00. How do you get clicks that high and is it worth it to get seo done on adsen$e websites if they only pay nickle and dimes? I'm using only free traffic and I can't see why someone would pay so much money for seo on these types of sites if they only pay cents. Please explain.

    I already replied to the other thread you made yesterday but in case you didn't see it:

    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.

    Sorry I forgot about that post from yesterday. Do you think the CPC is affected because I'm going after How to keywords... they do have high CPC though. Great advice
