Using SEMRUSH to find profitable AdSense Keywords:
To get all you can from this excellent tool, I suggest you first compile the following tools:
- Google Docs spreadsheet or any other tool you’re using to manage keywords.
- SEMRUSH account. (Get complete 14-day free trial using this link)
- List of high and medium authority blogs in your niche.
Login to your SEMRUSH account, and type the name of the domain that you want to use for finding long tail high CPC keywords.
On the next page, click on organic keywords > Full list, and you will be shown a list of keywords that are driving traffic to the Warrior Forum.
Now, you simply need to sort the list by clicking on the CPC tab, and it will sort the list in order of high CPC keywords first.
Interesting to note is the fact that the majority of high CPC AdSense keywords are usually long tail keywords. Indeed, some of them are as high as $70+ per click!
Now begin copying the keywords which you think are most suitable to your blog. (I usually note most of the keywords on my content-planning Google document, and I use these notes later for structuring content on ShoutMeLoud or any other blog.)
Continue to repeat the process for the other domains on the list, and by the time you have completed this exercise you will have an extensive list of high-CPC AdSense keywords.
Since you are already targeting niche-based long tail keywords, you are most likely to rank higher, and drive traffic on those keywords. This is one of the simplest and fastest ways to skyrocket your AdSense earnings.
Keep in mind that you need to make sure your keywords are driving traffic from countries like the United States. Otherwise you are not maximizing your potential from this tip.
Top Most Expensive Google Keywords
The Top 20 Most Expensive Keywords are:
- Conference Call
- Cord Blood
You’ll notice that these top ten most expensive AdWords keywords deal primarily with financing and industries that manage vast sums of money. The fact that the educational keyword “degree” is one of the top ten most expensive Google keywords, right up with lawyers and credit, reminds us of the growing cost of education.
There you have it – the highest cost keywords. If you are considering entering into one of these industries, be ready to pay high cost per click rates for the top keywords. While some may start treatment facilities for the greater good, be aware that you’ll wind up in one of the most expensive niche groups, and your paid search marketing wallet will suffer from those high CPCs.
