    Hi,

    So I have a keyword with a search volume of 1,900 and a CPC of $164.41.

    Now I'm curious as to if I setup a site with said keyword and direct traffic to it from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., how would Google react if let's say I got 64 ad hits?

    It's not as if I'm using fake traffic, and I'd also be directing people of high quality from the same niche to the site; though the total amount of revenue would be $7155.12, and I'm not certain how Google handles various situations with high CPC and search volume.

    Thanks for the help.

    Best regards,
    Saroekin

    The CPC for my keyword dropped from $20 to $0.01 today while I was building a website for the specific keyword. This made me skeptical about a very high CPC...

    Hmm good to know, and dang that's a bummer.

    Now that you mentioned that though there must be a service or varying metrics that will alert you if a keyword often has a high fluctuating CPC, correct? Not saying that you should've used anything as such, just more or so preparing myself to avoid that; though anyway thanks for the notice.

    Best regards,
