    What topics generate the most revenue from ad clicks? Its not political or social issues , ive realized that smile

      It appears to be product reviews, which makes sense. If people are searching for a review of something they are considering for purchase, they are more likely to click the ad.

    Depends on the product, I find Health pays if you go for the good paying keyword ones that aren't boring.

          Oh, I know. You can make anything interesting.
          Anyway, to answer the real question, (to avoid making this a chatroom...) I have noticed that good subject matter, makes for higher quality clicks. Like, holidays, news stuff current events..stuff like that.

    thats BC for ya.  go to the adwords keyword tool, enter your keyword, and click "show colums-average CPC"  you'll see how much each keyword is worth

    check out yoshi97's hub http://hubpages.com/_trck/hub/Yoshis-Hu … g-keywords

    I thought the word Forum was defined as a public meeting place for open discussion, now where I live thats really the same as a chatroom although not like some chatrooms the Captain has visited on his online trips.

    Current events are a no for me though, they only have a certain lifespan !

        Already had my lunch, jeeeez I deff need cookery lessons. Now there is a good earning lot of topics for you, actually typing out how to cook something like " How To Cook A Hotpot ", and a great little cook like you would so be able to type one of yer special hubs and you do know what you are talking about, never doubt that !!

    When looking for high paying subjects, it's important to keep in mind that the higher paying keywords have the most competition! (Usually) So, yes the ads might pay more, but if you can't get any traffic, then what's the point?

    Sometimes, you can do just as well with 5 hubs on mid-level competition keywords, then one on a super competitive subject that will only get you a few views a month because it's buried so far down in google's search engine results.

    To see how much you can earn with a keyword, check out google.com/keywords and then select CPC (cost per click) in the drop down box for displayed results. Also remember that the CPC is what advertisers pay, as publishers, we typically get around 25%. So, a $1 keyword will only result in a .25 click.

    Good luck! big_smile

    Just as badcompany99 mentioned health and other than that attorneys, cars(expensive ones) bla bla.

    According to a myth the things that are costly or have high competition among advertisers will have high CPC. Although this is more of an established fact but with Adwords its always safe to call sayings like this a myth.

    Finance topics generally have a very high CPC - sometimes in excess of $30.  While we may only make 10-15% of that, it is still pretty decent.  The downside is that there is a lot of competition, so hubs should be specific and detail focused rather than generalized.

    Here is my advice to you:

    1) Have a look at all my Hubs
    2) Write about the topics that have nothing to do with what I cover

    You should be rich by September!
