How Can I Figure Out Which Keyword Was Clicked In Google AdSense?

    I just checked my Google AdSense and saw an unusually large payment for a single click.  I haven't even reached the payout level yet, so this is quite unusual for me.  Isn't there a way in the Google AdSense reporting page to find out which word it was that produced the large payment?  I can't seem to figure this out.  It's probably staring me right in the face and I am overlooking it.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

    I'm not sure, but this tutorial *might* help: http://www.seobook.com/archives/001370.shtml

      Thanks!  That's very interesting.  I don't understand why one needs a third party app to figure out which of their Google keywords are working in AdSense?  Is there some reason why Google keeps this information private?  What I'm driving at is that if I know what word it was that had the big payout, perhaps I could figure out ways to get those ads to display more.  Both myself and Google would make more money from the higher paying clicks, so I'm not sure I understand their rationale, but I'm sure there must be a good explanation that I am overlooking, as I don't always see things clearly above the mysterious way the Internet works until someone explains it to me.

    I'm not sure about an individual keyword, but google analytics will tell you which hubs got clicks and what the total payment was.  From your description, that information should produce the individual hub, and you can also see which keywords got readers to it. 

    Should be a start, anyway.

      Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.  I will look into it further.
