So I have heard plenty about looking out for keywords with a high CPC. But how exactly does it work. For instance, say I am going to write a hub about 'Table Lamps'. I type table lamps into google adwords and find that 'table lamps' has a cpc of $0.50. But what if I wanted the title of my hub to be 'buy cheap table lamps online'. Would that qualify for that payment. As chances are the phrase 'cheap table lamps' will have a different CPC. Then 'buy cheap table lamps' will have another CPC.
So if I wanted to get the $0.50 for my hub, would I just have to call it 'Table Lamps' and not use any other words?
I hope I have explained that properly and not confused everyone with what I mean.
Well, that $.50 is only a guesstimate of what advertisers will pay at any given moment for that particular keyword. And of that $.50 (or whatever it turns out to be), you only get around 68% of it.
If you use "buy cheap table lamps," in your example, you have effectively used several keywords: "buy cheap table lamps," "cheap table lamps" and "table lamps." As long as the keyword is a match (and is used in the right context), you're good to go.
I have seen some words though with a really high CPC like say $8. Then the same words with an extra word added only earn $0.20. So how does that work? Would I get the high or the low payment? Is it just meant to be a general guide as to what kind of ads are likely to be put on your page?
This depend on a lot factors like :
1- type of visitor ( traffic coming from search engine is the best one)
2- country of traffic (USA is the best)
3-Optimizing keywords in the page (on-page seo)
And a other factors google hide from us!
- The most ads relevant to your keywords in the page is the ads which google put in your page.

Should I pay attention to Google's CPC for keywords I am choosing when writing hubs?Does Google's CPC matter or does HP have their own?

Okay, I am really confused as to how people do keyword research and find some good low competition keywords, because I for one have not figured it out yet. The more deep I dig in, the more confusing it gets.For instance, I found some low competition keywords with good amount of searches per month,...

Hi All! I have a keyword that is searched for at least 2,000 per month with a high CPC. Every time I get a click however, I make like 50 cents on the click...the keyword is worth more than 20 bucks according to he Google Keyword Tool. What's the deal here? Am I missing something? Do I earn money...

...guess what? It seems that unless I'm missing something, you now need to have an AdWords account to get the keyword tool to show the estimated average CPC for a keyword/phrase. If you don't have an AdWords account, you can *sort* by CPC, but you can't actually view the CPC column any...
