I've stumbled on some keywords using the google keyword tool that have very high cost per click. How do i use them to create money making hubs?
Any input gladly received
same as anyother keyword - write a hub about the topic - include the keyword in the url and the title
And very succinct too Lissie. Way to go ...
I might have to look into this myself! As a new member I need some hints!
In addition to what Lissie has smartly suggested, don't count out the importance of 'keyword competition'. Knowing which keyword(s) to target is just the tip of the iceberg.
Good luck, Susana.
you write a hub around the keyword or include it in your hub a few times. see some of my adsense tips etc.
Be wary of assuming the "very high paying" stuff really is THAT high paying (or even a goodly percentage). Many people confuse the estimated CPC ad bids for search network with the ad bids for content network.
The content network as a lump traditionally gets lower conversions for advertisers. Since we're on the content network at HubPages (as are blogs and other content sites), unless our conversions are stellar, chances are the really high paying advertisers have opted out of their ads appearing on the our pages here--i.e., the content network--to focus on the higher conversions of the search network. Which still leaves healthy clicks, but probably not what the Google keyword tool implies.
A good rule of thumb is that you earn about 25% of whatever the CTR is. So, if Google Keywords says the keyword blahlabha has advertisers paying $10 a click, you might get $2.50 (if you're lucky). Then you have to take into consideration how much traffic it gets and if you can actually rank high enough on google to earn any money, anyways. Like mesothelioma which pays a lot per click, you'd never be able to get on the first page (with Google at least) because of all the competition.
I can't discuss personal click rates on here because of Google's TOS, but what Google Keywords says a click costs, is not what you will earn...trust me. If this were the case I'd be making a lot more a month. Again, a good rule is around 25-30% of that amount. I also am quite sure (due to my own experience) that the amount you earn per click is lowered IMMENSELY once you've been smart priced by google. Luckily, you can fix this by writing very targeted content that only gets very interested readers coming from search engines. (I'd rather have 50 views from Googlge traffic than 500 views from Hubpages traffic, anyday). Web-surfers will click the ads for the topic they were searching for. Hubbers, won't, thus reducing your CTR (click through rate)
Good advice Fiction Teller.
But with a name like that, do you think people will believe what you write in the forums?
If all you want is ad rev you've got a lot of good ideas here...if you want a stable audience, don't forget to personalize your information.
If it does not interest you, do not write about it.
Is it a No-NO for Hubbers to click ads on other Hubbers' pages?
Onthewriteside, it's generally best to avoid it clicking on the Hubpages ads if you are a hubber yourself.
Adwords advertisers are looking for converting traffic and if you are only clicking out of curiosity or because you are thinking you are helping another hubber earn money, you may actually be harming them. Too many non-converting clicks and you'll get smart-priced and your earnings will drop to pennies. Too many suspicious clicks and you'll get booted from the program.
Thanks for all these really helpful replies
I do have a few questions though....
What is google smart pricing - I haven't heard this term before?
Should I focus my efforts on one keyword/phrase? Or maybe use two or three related phrases? I'm definitely targeting people using search engines rather than hubpage members.
Using the google keyword generator tool - I've been looking at keywords that are not already saturated which generally have less searches for them, but I have a higher chance of getting ranked as there is less competition. Is this the right kind of thinking?
My simple newbie advice is to write and write often. When you tired of writing write some more. And then when you really tired of writing work on backlinks and you guessed it... Write somemore.
google smart pricing is the algorithm that determines the quality of clicks that you send to merchants. If enough people click on your ads and don't buy anything then the amount that you're paid per click, will decrease, and probably decrease a lot.
Some merchants will want the clicker to fill out a form or stay on the site for a minimum length of time.

That's the official Google adsense blog. I recommend spending some time there as there is lots of valuable information. Also, you should go into your Google adsense account and check out the various help files. They explain a lot of stuff.
For keywords -- definitely use related phrases in your content. You'll want to have your Hub title and url include the main phrase and then repeat that in your first paragraph and your last paragraph at a minimum. If the hub is short, that's enough. If it is long, a few more times is natural.
Related phrases are important too and will help. If you want, you can make related phrases sub-headings in your hubs for the different text modules. That's what I usually try and do. Add them in your tags as well.
But just try and write naturally. If you write naturally, your content will include both related phrases and synonyms without looking like you were trying to cram a bunch of keywords in there
If you want to get more into how to use related phrases, Google "Latent symantic indexing". Here's a good article that covers it as well: http://www.seobook.com/archives/000657.shtml
