I know there are a lot of you looking into finding the top paying keywords to build your sites/blogs. While there is a bit of talk about paying for these keyword lists or other websites that list top paying keywords, I’ve found them to be limited resources at best.
If you want to conduct your own high paying adsense keyword research, and have no idea what niche to work with, here is a method I like using the free Adwords Tool:
1. Go to the Google Adwords Keyword tool. In the search box, use the “Site Related Search”
2. In the box, add the URL of a major authority site like About.com, Wikipedia, Squidoo, Ezinearticles, etc. Ones that cater to all content.
3. Check the Include other pages box. Set your maximum CPC fairly high ($50-$100)
4. Add the “Show Estimated Avg CPC” column and sort by that criteria. (Remove the groupings to show a list just sorted by price)
Feel free to dig deeper analyzing competition, and discovering traffic.
