Top 10 High-Paying Keywords

James Ryan Jonas

My friend, a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) freak who owns at least eight (8) different blogs, and I were discussing yesterday about blogging and how to make money from blogs.

I told him about the article I wrote on 7 easy-to-make blogs that can make you money but he said although these are indeed easy to make, these blogs are not necessarily lucrative.

According to him, if one’s goal is to make lots of money by blogging, one should target high-paying keywords. This got me to researching what these top-paying keywords are.

Based on what I read from several articles and confirming the keyword value through Google Adwords, this is my list of the Top 10 High-Paying Keywords you might be interested to target.

Top 10 Keywords by Cost per Click (CPC)

  1. eLoan
  2. Equity Line Credit
  3. Mesothelioma
  4. Refinance Quotes
  5. Home Equity Loan
  6. Structured Settlements
  7. Personal Injury Attorney
  8. Term Life Insurance
  9. Dedicated Hosting
  10. Accident Lawyer

Targeting any of these keywords can earn you around $15 to $30 per click — that, of course, does not consider yet Google’s cut in the advertising fee.

In any case, even if you get “only” $15, if you multiply that by the number of clicks you can get, you stand to earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars everyday.

It’s also good to know high-paying keywords that are popular in terms of the number of clicks generated. The idea is that even if a keyword does not have a relatively high cost per click, if you can have a lot of clicks, then you can still earn a lot from that keyword.

Here is that list. We narrowed it down to keywords that generate at least 1,000 clicks per day and pay at least $10.00 per click.

Top 10 High-Paying Keywords by Number of Ad Clicks

  2. Car Insurance
  3. Refinance
  4. Equity Loans
  5. Credit Cards
  6. Credit Report
  7. Debt Consolidation
  8. Life Insurance
  9. Mortgages
  10. Domain Name

Good luck targeting those keywords!
