How to Increase Your Adsense Earnings on HubPages
In the last few hubs that I’ve written, I’ve mainly been talking very generally about making money with HubPages. Some of them are quite general indeed and don’t offer a whole lot of information, and I’ve done that for a reason – to increase my adsense earnings.
But since I’m in a generous mood I thought I’d write a hub that was actually useful for readers looking to increase their adsense HubPages earnings. So here it is.
Now I’m going to assume that you already have an adsense account and have set it up in your HubPages affiliate settings (if you haven’t you can read how to do this at the stay at home mom make money online hub that I wrote yesterday).
Finding High CPC Keywords
You next step is to write hubs with keywords that are both easy to rank for, and also have a high cost per click (CPC) amount.
Let’s first go over the general areas that earn the most money with adsense. Probably the most well known and well paying keywords are from the areas of:
Physical product keywords also do well.
Now we need to find out the CPC of those keywords. Pop over to the Google Adwords Keywords Tool and plug your keywords into the top. I’ll use the term bicycle for this example.
In the drop down box Views (top right of the keyword list) and then customise columns, select the column Estimated Avg. CPC.
You can sort by Estimated Avg CPC by Clicking on that column heading so you can sort by the highest CPC to lowest.
When I did the search, I can see that bicycle insurance has the highest CPC at $4.29.
What is a good CPC to choose?
Anything over $1.00 is usually a good CPC for me to choose but sometimes I’ll go lower. You can drill down again if you want to get more keywords.
Now I’m guessing that ‘bicycle insurance’ is a highly competitive keyword (most insurance keywords are) so I might not choose that one. From the list I particular like’ bicycle trailer’ as it sounds like I could write a good article about it.
So there you go, how to choose good keywords to increase your HubPages Adsense earnings. Next hub I’ll write about checking the competition to see if you can rank your hub high in the search engines, and other ways to get traffic to your hub.
