Ever wondered what are the most expensive Adsense keywords? Take a look at the infographic below:

Top 20 highest paying Adsense keywords

Before you even think about building a website optimized for one of these keywords – don’t bother. Ranking for keywords like “lawyer” or “loans” is simply impossible.. Just a friendly reminder.

However, there are a few ways of making some good money using these keywords. Here’s what you could do:

1. You could use other traffic sources to get visitors to your Adsense sites. Just make sure it’s quality and qualified traffic.

2. If you are really good with SEO, you could dive into the sub niche of the niche.

In other words, if you are targeting a keyword “lawyer”, you could build a site optimized for a keyword like:

divorce lawyer

Or even better, add cities, states or even years to the keyword, like:

springfield divorce lawyer 2013

You get the idea.

Long tail keywords has less competition, but still pays good money for clicks.

I hope this will give you some ideas for your Adsense sites.

Raimundas M,

I read your posts and always find value. Thanks for taking the time to helping us IMers.


Thanks man.
Glad to hear that!

Thanks for the post, some interesting reading.

It’s interesting to see the most expensive, and I do agree that long-tail keywords are easier to rank for, the longer the easier. I try to find the shortest possible whilst looking at price and monthly searches. Do you think this is the best practice?


Hey Sam,
It’s a good practice. You can still find short keywords with good monhtly searches and high CPC, but I find that it takes a bit time to research those.

I like to use proven high CPC keywords and include my own variations, such as year, state, city, country, gender and so on.

Even if those keywords has less monthly searches, it’s still worth a time to rank them.

By the way, what’s the minimum requirements to get accepted for Adsense and Adwords, do they work on duration the blog is active, or amount of content published? I’ve applied twice and I’ve been declined. *sad* (oh, there’s no adult content or whats so ever on my site).

Hey Denzil, wow, that’s sad.

I got my Adsense account about two years ago. Back then there were different rules..

What I would do today if I were you, I would buy a .com domain, setup a blog and work on it for a week or so.

As soon as Google index the blog – I would try to apply for Adsense.

As for Adwords, I don’t think it’s hard to get it. It’s more harder to stay and didn’t get slapped (which already happend to me).

Hope this helps.

Actually right now I am trying with the Technology niche. What do you think is it good for adsense earnings?

SydowTech, the problem with the technology niche is that the audience in that niche is more tech savvy. I mean, they don’t click on ads that much and many have ad-blockers installed.

Adsense works great for non-geeky demographic, such as gardeners, fishers and so on.
