    If one wanted to spin out a series of sites that covered a variety of topic verticals with the purpose of garnering revenue from banners, specifically Adsense advertising, which verticals are the most profitable?

    After Tech and Investing I'm just not sure nor am I sure how to even produce a list like this without exhaustive GA keyword research. I've done a great deal of web searching but just can't find a compiled list. This seems extremely strange to me because I bet you every ad exchange can tell you what type of content ads bring them the greatest revenue.

    Anyway looking for advice from the BigGuns on this or where to find a list like this. :confused:

    Well, After some clever reevaluation of my search criteria I uncovered this list.

    I hope this will be helpful for someone else as well.

    The top twenty keyword categories that demanded the highest costs per click are:
    1. Insurance (example keyword: ?auto insurance price quotes?)
    2. Loans (example keyword: ?consolidate graduate student loans?)
    3. Mortgage (example keyword: ?refinanced second mortgages?)
    4. Attorney (example keyword: ?personal injury attorney?)
    5. Credit (example keyword: ?home equity line of credit?)
    6. Lawyer
    7. Donate
    8. Degree
    9. Hosting
    10. Claim
    11. Conference Call
    12. Trading
    13. Software
    14. Recovery
    15. Transfer
    16. Gas/Electricity
    17. Classes
    18. Rehab
    19. Treatment
    20. Cord Blood
