    Been on the keyword tool and clicked approximate cpc search, etc but still no actual figure comes up £0.91 example. Anyone know where i'm going wrong? Or how you actually find the CPC for a given keyword? Have searched on here and Google, to no avail.

    Cheers :)

    I'm not sure if I'm understanding you properly. But after you've searched for your keywords and the list of keyword ideas shows, click in the box to the right of the page that says 'Columns' and choose 'Approximate CPC (Search)' from that drop-down list. Any search you then do should show a value.

    Well, what exactly do you want? Do you want to find out how much do you have to pay/click if you start a campaign in Adwords or just to find out what's the value of the clicks -if you are lucky enough? There are 2 different values, truth be told.
    First of all, the CPC listed in Adwords is not equal with the CPC in Adsense. It's just the ~value of the click and it's more helpful for the advertisers and not for the publishers.
    That's because the CPC in Adsense depends of a lot of factors. From my experience, I can tell that the CPC in Adsense depends of:
    - cookies in the viewer's browser;
    - region;
    - period of the year and even of the month;
    - whether or not the account of the publisher has been smartpriced;
    - and so on...

    Hope it helps.

    Yep, was just after a rough figure as to how much some guy's paying for an ad he's placed for a certain keyword. All sorted now.

    Diolch!

    Additionally...if a CPC is £0.57p, for example. Does this mean, the advertiser is being roughly charged £0.57p per click on his ad?

    I'm not sure to be honest. If I did answer it I'd be partially guessing so it's probably best that someone more experienced answers that for you. I'd say that the advertiser was being charged more, as the big G would be taking their cut too, so if you were paid 57p for a click from your site the chances are that the advertiser was being charged more. But again, I couldn't say with confidence as I'm not sure how the maths works.

    On the Jono thing I'm not sure. But I have two Welsh friends called Jono.

    People, please use English in your posts.
    I hate to run BHW through G Translator to understand if any rules are violated.

    Almost forgot...posting in languages other than English is against the rules...:D
