    Hi! I'm choosing keywords for my first adsense website. I've read a lot on the topic, and most people have their own guidelines on what CPC we should go after. But right now I'm staring at two nearly identical keywords, let's say 'blackhat forum' and 'blackhat seo forum', one having 5 times higher CPC than another. So, what if one of my pages ranks for them both as well as for dozens other long-tail keywords with low CPC? Will they lower the CPC that I get from Adsense? Should I try to focus only on the higher CPC stuff? Or is the CPC just meaningless when choosing keywords because it will depend on the actual visitor, his cookies etc?
    What's been your personal experience? Do you choose keywords based on CPC when starting new projects?
