Adsense, still don't get it

    Despite a lot of reading here, I still don't 'get it'
    To make it simple...I write within a topic that has very high Adwords cost per click.
    Does that translate into better Adsense earnings ??

      Yes, if your content gets the traffic (over the other pages on the Internet) and if your writing makes readers want to take up one of the advertisements.

      You can write high value words, but you still have to:
      • Get them to find your page
      • Get them to click on adverts shown on your page.

        So...one can reverse engineer from ADWORDS CPC to some idea of PPC ??
        If so,  what do we get...like 25% or so ??

          Google explains AdSense revenue share here:
          https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/180195?hl=en

          It's currently 68% for most ads on HubPages.

    G used to publish the figure, I think it was 69%.  So somebody paying £1/click could yield you £0.69.

    But it's not as simple as that as you don't know if the person is clicking on an advert that has been re-targetted to them, at a much lower rate.

    But, to keep it simple.... the rate would be £0.69 for a £1 adwords click.  Then, if you're creating content here on Hubpages, 60% of the time it's your publisher ID showing, so you've a 60% chance that a click would be on your account.

    Seeing as a lot of ads are location or search history targeted, it's much more likely that the next website they visit will earn the next guy high CPC lol.

    There are ways you can code in or out Adsense adverts keywords, but you can't do that on Hubpages.
