Mesothelioma - Legal Advice & other high value kw's...

Discussion in 'Google AdWords' started by mopacfan, Jul 28, 2004.

  1. #1
    I'm just curious how many here, if any, have created content on one or more sites that target high value AdWords such as Mesothelioma or Legal Advice or Workman's Comp, etc? These are high dollar k/w's and a very tempting opportunity. I'm wondering how successful anyone's been setting up content for such words.

    I've created sites that were about high priced keywords, but not to just manipulate the adsense..

    The bids for Mesothelioma must have come done like a rock. They were around $60 a click late last year.

    I find it really sad that some people are making so much money from something that should really not be an option for making money. People are dying... Asbestos exposure is a terrible thing and the lung cancer it causes should not be something that Google or anyone else makes money from.

    Is it? Explain the correlation between someone who builds a website to get rich off of someone doing a search for someones serious illness and someone charging for building and selling a casket.

    Well they are both profiting off of someone's misfortune. If someone purposely builds a site to profit off of asbestos, yah it might not be the most moral thing in your opinion. But in their opinion they might see it as helping someone out who does have the problem. Either way someone is going to be making money off of their misfortune. Now the lawyer gets a little bit less.

    With caskets the same thing applies, someone is making a lot of money putting together wood. It might be even worse. Some people can barely afford to bury their loved ones.

    Some might think it is wrong to profit off another one's misfortunes, but it is going to happen. Lawyers aren't going to work for free and funeral services aren't going to give away caskets. People need to make money and some do it however they can.

    Of course I am not saying building a site like this is the best way to make money and it is something I personally wouldn't do, but for other peope it is perfectly fine.

    and you could argue that in both cases an ideal business would be trying to help the people that are in that situation..

    Well I think sites targetting it AND not falsifying the clicks, is fine. Since if someone found it and clicked, its the same. I find it difficult to see that always being the case.

    The real problem with the mesothelioma sites is that people are just building them and filling it up with BS. I've seen projects at freenlancer sites asking people to write a few articles about lung cancer.

    They don'r give a rat's a*s about helping people, they just want to have a page with a high keyword density to get those high priced ads showing.

    Anyway, there are now 2,540,000 results for that keyword, so getting a good ranking for such a site would be really tough.
