    Hey guys,
    i've found a good KW with a lot of searches but only 5% ofd the searches are from the US, the rest comes from Romania and Croatia and other places,
    should i target for a keywords with more US searches or will i get a nice profit from this keyword too?
    Thanks!

    that depends on how you want to monetize but generally speaking US advertisers and marketers pay the most for US traffic.

    It really depends on the niche and what kind of offer you would like to promote. Most "Free" offers are US based such as email submits, but there are some products that can be promoted well for international traffic. It all depends on your plan.

    the post is in cpa section so obviously i will use cpa
    but to be more specific i am planing to lock some content
    i do know that us pays much more, the question is is it worth to work on a keyword that there is not so much demand in the US for it but there is a lot of demand from other places
    thanks.

    Well, you can do that, but I think what's going on with the news in the area and general thinking of what people in that country would like may help figure it out.
    Maybe Google Trends can help. I'm not completely sure tbh.

    thanks mate, I've looked over the offers for Romania(most searches come from there) and they are over 1$ each, the exact search volume is over 12k so i think it will do fine
    just don't want my first cpa site to fail and make me think that cpa doesn't worth it :p
