      You deserve a high five.

      You may not know why or from where, but your high paying click is a result of you writing a great hub.

    Amazing Janet. Congrats!

    Any idea about the niches for that click.

      No idea.  I wish I did!  I don't have separate channels for each hub set up on adsense.

    Wow! it would have been great if you knew about the niche to make more $$$$$.

    Wow!  I don't think I've ever seen over $4.

    That click means someone paid over $10 just to have someone visit their site - what in the world are they selling that a mere visitor entering the web site is worth that?

    Timeshare sales often pay more than that, but that is for a physical presence and an agreement to listen to a sales pitch.  Most clickers will just turn around and leave again.

    I can give some helpful advice here - high end acoustic guitars won't draw such high paying adverts to your hubs :-\

      Hah!  Neither will how to wire a 3 way switch - those are about a dime. smile

        Dang - I'm just as qualified for that one as the never ending acoustic guitar reviews.  Guess I'll stick to what I like over what I'm equally qualified to present.

        I am pleased with one thing of late though - my guitar or music hubs now feature adverts from a Music store that I actually do business with sometimes, "Mundt Music" in Tyler, Texas - high paying or no, I like that folks that I actually know and like are being promoted on my pages.

          Sad to say, they probably aren't.  Were I to guess, you have looked at such stores or what they sell; google takes that information, combines it with your location and puts the ad up (that the store then pays for).  Were I to look at the hub I probably wouldn't see it.

            My thoughts too, Wilderness.  I see such ads from area businesses even in my relatively small urban area.  Google sees all!  Unfortunately for us, in my opinion. smile

              wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              You can turn that effect off on your hubs, you know.  I've tried it but found it more beneficial to let it stay.  Not surprising - if it didn't help sell ads google wouldn't be doing it.

              Although I agree - it is scary how much google knows about us.

                But do they take in consideration we aren't allowed to click ads on our won hubs?  I think they are simply following us no matter where we are on the internet so we might see an ad related to what we have searched for earlier.

                I know some cancelled their Gmail accounts because of ads appearing related to email subjects they had recently discussed.  It seems to be a blanket policy regardless of whether it endangers Adsense affiliates or not.

                  It took me a minute to figure that one out.  You are absolutely right that google follows us everywhere and watches what we do.  You can't turn it off for your own viewing, just turn it off so that visitors histories aren't used to put ads on your hubs.

                  If I found my Gmail account being used that way I would leave too, and it wouldn't take a month to do so.  Or a week or 10 minutes.

                    I've noticed for ages that whatever is discussed in an email carries related ads.

                    That's a bit scary till you realise that is probably only a bot set up to look for certain keywords.

                    Email was never private. I was always told it's about as private as a postcard.

            Yeah - I'm sure you are right.  I'd imagine only North Texas people who look at those hubs see that, and of course that's exactly how it should be.

    Randy Godwinposted 5 years ago

    I've had a few that high or higher and it always amazes me too.  Without knowing which ad on the page is responsible for the high clicks it's hard to tell exactly what keyword is responsible for the big bucks.  I think we just get lucky occasionally.  smile

    Wow, Janet, congrats!  I'm happy for you.  My highest click so far is $5.25, and I  was so thrilled.. actually any click is exciting to me.  Here's to more clicks for you... Cheers!

    That's one rare high CPC. Never got such expensive clicks before

  17. IzzyM profile image86
    IzzyMposted 5 years ago

    Oh yes sorry for going OT, that click was amazing!!

    I remember someone posting here about getting a $30 click on his private site but to get one like that on HP is mind-bogglingly good.

    Think my highest ever was $3 or something, a distant memory ago.

    What's a click again?
