    hi,

    i built an online degree site. most of these online degree related keywords have a cpc > 20 $.

    why does adsense only pay me 0.2$ per click?

    what am i doing wrong?

    Twitter traffic works poorly for adsense.Try to get Organic Google traffic CPC will be higher.

    is there any workaround like some sort of redirect or anything?

    its hard for me to believe that google serps traffic is 100 times more value that twitter traffic...

    Why is it hard for you to believe? People who are googling have a purpose and are more likely to buy into something. People using twitter click whatever comes in front of them

    Wizards thread in the journeys section talks about this as well. Look at that for more info, he did some tests with CPC as well. I think he noticed that CPC for twitter would be low initially, and then increase a bit over time when keeping the same ads.

    yeah i saw that but his CPC of 0.10 is still way under what it should be, around $1. I'm about to start on a very high paying niche and if i still get the same smart priced results I'm just going to use the traffic for list building. Still cost effective.

    Try mix it up with another source of traffic, 0.2$ is good by the way!

    What if you mask your twitter traffic to be like direct traffic?
    Will this bring the CPC up?
