Mesothelioma $160, on AdSense?

Discussion in 'AdSense' started by Lawsuit, Nov 28, 2004.

  1. #1
    From my personal experience with a Mesothelioma site, I know for a fact that I am not getting paid $160 a click. But Overture says Mesothelioma is worth $160!

    Now I am making roughly $1.01/click with AdSense on Mesothelioma, but I am wondering, does the rates on Overture in anyway relate to the rates on AdSense?

    Check out Mesothelioma on Overture: http://uv.bidtool.overture.com/d/search/tools/bidtool/index.jhtml?Keywords=mesothelioma&mkt=us&lang=en_US&Partner=userbidtool

    Something must be going right for them if there bids just keep going hire.

    If Overture is paying $160 a click then hell, I want to sign with them...



    My question is:

    Are AdSense bids linked to Overture bids, or are Overture bids seperate?

    they're probably VERY similar for organic clicks from searches.

    the meso-abuse is so high, no one will be paying much per click for content-matches (ie adsense ads).

    find another way to get rich quick.

    I know, what I think is, people who can sign up with Overture arn't as needy to make Mesothelioma sites, as people who can sign up for AdSense (anyone can sign up for AdSense).

    Overture is more filtered, but my question is, do people who actual sign with Overture and have Mesothelioma sites (which is probably very rare) get paid the $160? That's crazy money for one click!

    they pay it because they can afford to.

    they can pay 160$ a click for legitimate traffic that might lead to a lawsuit or whatever it may be.

    they can't pay 160$ a click for adsense because the numbers don't work for them. too many people abuse it, and the conversions/leads aren't working as well as they do for overture.

    stop wasting your time with meso. build a real informational site on something you're interested in. you'll get more traffic, more money, and you don't need to worry about google kicking you out for creating sites explicity for the purpose of displaying ads.

    I've noticed when I first start sites that my click value can be quite low but with time they go up in value. My theory is that Google somehow pays according to the legitimacy of your site - perhaps worked out by size of site, incoming links, page rank or some other means. I know people who get paid considerably more than others using the same key words and I wonder if this is the case in this situation also.

    Just hypothesizing here.

    My impression is that adwords advertiser adjust the cost per click on a specific publisher rather than google doing it for them

    $160 per click would be interesting considering the maximum bid in AdWords is $100. So if the advertiser paid the maximum amount ($100), Google would be giving you even more money out of their own pocket. Doesn't seem like good business sense to me. :)

    adwords advertisers cannot change their CPC based on content or google searches. only option available is to turn off content all together - and I suspect a lot of people do this, because of the junk sites out there that deliver tons of clicks but no sales.

    you can always run two ad groups though- one with content matching on, one with it off.

    Or you should start advertising company like Overture or search engine :). Nothing is excluded.

    Well, Mesothelioma only pays like $0.52 now, I want to make more sites, but I don't want to waste my time with sites that only pay $0.03.

    Anyone know a word that pays $1+ on AdSense? Thanks.

    There's a top paying keyword site out there. It shows up a lot in this forum as an adsense ad. Its somewhere around $250, so I'm holding off on buying a membership until I have time to develop a few sites that will generate decent traffic. Does anybody have any experience with it? (something to the effect of toppayingkeywords.com)

    I am just so sick about these stupid posts... people asking over and over about Mesothelioma, asking for a list with high paying keywords and related BS.

    Really people, get a life! If you are thinking of building a site just to put on some adsense banners you are a really loser.

    I have posted several times that Overture has NOTHING to do with adsense.

    If a keyword paid $160 for a click, I would just build a site about it, put up some adense banners, and every day go to a different internet cafe and click on one ad. I would have 30 clicks and thousands of dollars by the end of the month.

    Geez...

    That's funny! Seriously, though.. Wouldn't that be the life? Going to like 10 iNet Cafes a day, drinking coffee, surfing the web, getting other work done, click on a link before you go, and onto the next one. Then off to the Ritz to spend the night.. Man, I think you have come up with a new way for the homeless to make money. Instead of hitting everyone up for some change, they can just click and go. What a concept!

    the market size for M word is fixed, it won't get bigger 'cause more people create more M word sites. The payout will go down for sure. There're lot of opportunities where you can earn $1 or more a click.

    It's not hard figuring out what nets more than a buck a click. Just make a list of what you think is searched for that would cost quite a bit of money, the research each of those keywords for niches. No one is going to give you the keywords you're looking for. And if the market is highly saturated, you can bet you wont get much of that pie without a lot of time spent optimizing your site and building links.
