Ok there is something ive been thinking about for a while now to ask. First of all when you use the google keyword tool to find high paying keywords i find that the ads displayed on my site is often not what my main keyword suggests. To me this suggests that you dont neccesarily have control over the ads that gets displayed on your site. When i first came here i was advised to use the keyword tool so that my clicks actually made money. For example, say i made a hub with the main keyword being for 'treatment for depression'. I did this on my blog just now. This is a high paying keyword, something like $8 or more. Yet i get ads saying 'eliminate depression' or 'tools to reduce depression' which pays something like $0.05.
Then as far as SEO goes, lets say my hub is about 'How to bake a cake'. Now how many times exactly can you repeat 'How to bake a cake' in your hub without looking ridiculous. Think about it. Anyway 'How to bake a cake' can be a high paying key phrase, yet using more then a couple of times would make your text look unnatural.
These kind of things sometimes make me wonder if its not better to just to write about what you enjoy and do so naturally and hope for the best. Its all very well to get ranked highly in the search engines, but does that mean youll get clicks on high paying ads? Just asking.
A lot of sites that use Adsense are not the same quality as HubPages so a lot of advertisers stop their ads from showing on everything except Google's own results pages. On top of that you have smart pricing to contend with. A good explanation of smart pricing and click price variations can be found at:

The upshot is that a lot of the top paying ads might never appear on your hub.
It doesent really matter how many times you use a keyword on a page what matters more is where you use it, page title, url, heading tags, first paragraph are all places it should be used.
Forget about keyword density and try to write naturally so that the page engages the reader and converts better. Use links to get rankings and traffic.
Ok i just read that stuff. That explains a lot more. I used to think payment for a click was constant as shown by the price the keywrod tool gives. Obviously things such as age of your site, traffic, PR, how many pages you have dedicated to a subject etc, is important as well. Thanks again
Yeah the pice on the keyword tool is what an advertiser bids, so you have to think about not only the price after Google gets a cut, but why the high paying ads should feature on your website and not the lower bidders.
Well it's what an advertiser would bid if quality score was not involved. Because of quality score one advertiser could be paying one tenth of what another advertiser pays for the same keyword in the same position.
Also many advertisers stay away from the top position because it attracts a good amount of tyre kickers, so advertisers bidding to stay in second and third positions will pay even less, all of which means your cut gets less and less.
The price quoted is a "suggestion" only, a car advert could say it is $20 but I could bid $0.05 and get my advert shown on your hub (not that it is guaranteed to appear anywhere) but that is the way it is, the more competitors in a crowded market and the higher the price goes, but it is not set in stone
Yes , i have also the same problem with my blog. i have also used the google keyword tool and took the high paying and top searched keywords. but i think that does not make any effect on my adsense.
the click rate is very low sometimes 0.01$. The keyword tool is not very effective as i thought it would be.

Does anyone else filter out the low paying "junky" advertisers on Adsense with KeywordSpy.com? I started doing it and it has helped a lot on some of the other sites that I write for and on other forums it is recommended. Any thoughts?

Can someone explain to me in plain English what competition means with regard to us?It says there that it gives an indication of how many advertisers are bidding for a keyword.
