    9 direct link niches from clickbank (jesus christ these sites look like they would fail at convincing a 3 year old)
    1 web hosting (hostgator)

    Let's see: I put $60 on and so far have seen:

    Name Status Impressions Clicks CTR Avg. CPC
    xx Active 3,409 3 0.09% $0.03
    xxx Active 11 0 0.00% $0.00
    xx Active 6,462 5 0.08% $0.04
    x Active 0 0 0.00% $0.00
    xx Active 42 0 0.00% $0.00
    xxxx Active 952 2 0.21% $0.05
    xxx Active 123 0 0.00% $0.00
    xx Active 200 0 0.00% $0.00
    xx Active 0 0 0.00% $0.00

    2/6 clicks made it to the order form
    0/6 clicks ordered.

    The keyword with 6000 impressions really shocked me. That market is basically untouched. I wish I had the time to devote to it.

    I'm crying on the inside, at least adsense for domains is going to pay for a few of my side adventures this month...

    If anyone has anything they want programmed, just let me know. I'm bored and have run out of ideas(other than a proxy list checker + verifier of some type). I've been toying with a C# app that pulls from google product + trends, tosses into google insight, and spits out results. only one decent niche found so far

    x Imp:3,409 CLK:3 CTR:0.09% CPC:$0.03
    x Imp:21

    x Imp:269 CLK:1 CTR:0.37% CPC:$0.05
    x Imp:348

    29 clicks.
    0 sales.

    Just made another campaign. I hit jackpot on a keyword, just gotta make the right pitch/affiliate (I could probably get 500 clicks tonight for $15 on a related link), but finding the magic user to browse to the bottom of these CB sites is a pain.

    Ending the night with my main keyword at:
    30,849 CLK: 339 CTR: 1.10% CPC:$0.05

    Isn't there something better than CB you could direct your traffic to?
    Maybe you could find something that converts better for your kw?

    Heck, tell me what one of those killer kw is and I will make a product for it with a high quality landing page

    Makes me wonder if I should just soak my money into finding easy to sell keywords then selling them somehow to potential buyers

    n1
    KW1: CLK:9 IMP:31
    KW2: CLK19 IMP:200
    n2
    KW3: CLK:3 IMP:84
    KW4: CLK:4 IMP:192
    KW5: CLK:4 IMP:10
    n3
    KW6: CLK:2 IMP:31
    KW7: CLK:2 IMP:520
    KW8: CLK:3 IMP:21

    (after this it just gets sad)

    n4
    KW9: CLK:45 IMP:33,102

    I woke up this morning to KW9 at ~75k hits with 140 clicks coming out at $8 or so. It also was 'frozen' (pending review) and came back as "your keyword isn't relevant enough for this search volume."

    translation: you found a good keyword but your landing page (direct link to CB) sucks

    oh yah, all those clicks and not one conversion. I'm about to just go independent... $49 more to blow

    Are your keywords are in Broad match + Content Network is On ? If so - this amount of impressions isn't shocking lol :D
