Top 100 Keywords that Make You Money

Keywords to Consider

Do you become frustrated when unable to find reasonable paying topics to write about? When I first started writing online, I chuckled at how 2 hours of effort for a carefully crafted article led to only 120 pageviews and 2 ad clicks (making me a whopping $0.08 with Google AdSense).

Would increasing your online income by 30%, 60%, or even 120% help to motivate you to write more articles?

I enjoy researching keywords and am often asked to provide recommendations of topics to consider to local friends. I recently read a half dozen online articles about keyword tools, SEO techniques, and article marketing. After doing so, I realized that although the articles were helpful, NO ONE offered any specific article suggestions or top keyword insights. I left the articles feeling "informed", but empty handed without a roadmap or list to work from.

That empty feeling, while searching for article ideas, was the catalyst for this Hub. I thought it would be nice if someone simply published a weekly list of top money keywords with a cross-reference to search volume and average CPC. Seems reasonable.

Frustration can be a great motivator, so I decided to create my own list to publish weekly. Enjoy!

What has been your typical per click payout for Google AdSense?
