Earning money online can be quite difficult, especially if you are looking to monetize your blog solely through ads.
To be a successful Adsense publisher, you need a lot of traffic, but you also need that traffic to interact with the ads that are displayed on your site.
The AdSense CPC paid to you will depend on the topics you write about.
In the world of blogs, you can write competing articles for clicks that will pay a few cents or be strategic and write content that will pay large amounts of money.
If you really want to make money online with Adsense and build a successful business, I suggest you target these industries and higher payment keywords.
I broke this post by:
- The most paid Adsense keyword industries
- Ad types that pay more

Why do these Adsense keywords pay so much?
So how can you take advantage of this data and get thousands of dollars each month?
Let’s see a hypothetical example.
- Note that blogs related to insurance will have a high CPC.
- Then research some keywords and find that the “car insurance companies” pay quite well.
- You have the opportunity to write the best article you can about car insurance companies.
- With an amazing SEO on the page, you can get a high publication on your blog in Google rankings.
- You get a good amount of high quality organic traffic to your site, and then monetize more Adsense revenue.
Which Adsense ads pay the most?
In addition to choosing the best niche for adsense, you also have options on what type of ad to display. The options are: 1) text and visualization 2) matching content 3) in the feed and 4) in the article.
The ads in the article will naturally be combined with your content and will be shown midway through your blog post. I like these types of ads because they are contextual and generally receive a good number of clicks.
The ads in the sidebar are not as good as we are already able to disconnect them.
Professional tip: use automatic Google ads
Adsense automatic ads take advantage of machine learning and are automatically placed on your site where Google believes they will perform well.
Google has been testing the Auto Ads feature as a beta since September 2017 and recently (in early March) launched this feature for everyone.
Because Google has millions (if not billions) of sites to try, they are likely to be better than you or me in determining the right type and location of ads.
The only drawback of this is that you will not have much control over the amount of ads that are displayed or where they are placed, which, if demanding, could bother you.
To set up automatic ads on your site, follow these steps:
- Log in to your AdSense account.
- In the left navigation pane, click My ads .
- Click on automatic ads .
- On the “Choose your global settings” page, use the controls to select the ad formats you would like to display.
- Leave the Automatically select new formats option if you want AdSense to automatically add new ad formats to your global settings as they become available.
- Click Save .
- On the “Place the code on your page” page, click Copy code .
- Paste the ad code between the labels
</head>labels of each page on which you want to show automatic ads. If you are not sure how to do this , see the Implementation Guide of the Code of Google.

What exact keywords pay more CPCs in Adsense?
If you’re looking for premium payment keywords , such as mesothelioma, which pays more than $ 1000 per click, you can check the compiled list of 1M + adsense keywords by GrepWords here. For example, they reported the maximum rate of “keyword payment mesothelioma” of $ 1006.56 per click.
These are some of my favorite best paid keywords by industry found through SEMRush (data for 2017, 2018 and 2019):
Mesothelioma keywords ordered by CPC
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that covers the lungs, stomach, heart and other organs, and unfortunately can not be cured. However, treatment can help reduce pain. People who contracted mesothelioma did so in their work, so they see searches as “mesothelioma lawyers”, “mesothelioma law firms” and “mesothelioma compensation”.
This is a very competitive set of keywords, so, unless you can beat WebMD and MayoClinic, I suggest you look for other industries.

Bonus # 1: point to these countries if you want to win 10 times more
Targeting the right countries can really boost your AdSense earnings. Here are the top 10 countries to aim for:
|Do not.||country||Avg. CPC ($)||Max. CPC ($)||Avg. CTR%||Average RPM ($)|
|one||U.S||0.40 – 2.3||> 50||2-3||2.04|
|two||Canada||0.50 – 2||> 30||two||1.83|
|3||UK||0.10 – 1.6||> 19||1-2||1.37|
|4||Germany||0.40 – 1||> 11||1-3||2.62|
|5||Thailand||0.30 – 1||6||two||1.6|
|6||United Arab Emirates (UAE)||0.15 – 3.1||eleven||4||2.07|
|7||Japan||0.20 – 0.85||4||3||2,44|
|8||Switzerland||0.20 – 1||6||3||2.35|
|9||Italy||0.10 – 0.50||3||1-3||0.73|
If you look at this table, you will notice that most of the countries on this list are first world countries.
How do you target a particular country on your blog?
The easiest way is to blog in your native language. To get visitors from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom or Australia, your blog must be in English. Similarly, write in German if you are looking for people from Germany.
You can also change the orientation settings in the Search Console.
Bonus # 2: Unlock revenue even more by blocking low CPC ads
As a publisher, you have good control over what categories of ads you want to show on your site.
If you are trying to increase the CPC, RPM or CPM of your Adsense ads , I suggest you analyze the performance of your ad and start blocking the categories that do not pay well.
This is how you can do that.
- Go to Adsense and in the left column, click on “Allow and block ads”
- Click on “General Categories”
- Sort by % of earnings (ascending). Now you will see something like this.
- There you can see which ads are taking a good amount of impressions but generating relatively low profits . For example, in this example, the category “Hobbies Games & Leisure” is taking 4% of the impressions, but it only generates 0.7% of the income, so you can block it.
You can also experiment blocking certain ad networks. I personally have not tried this, but some people say it works.
One caveat: do not block too many categories (or ad networks), otherwise it will significantly reduce bidding competition and start reducing your revenue.
Professional advice: Execute optimization experiments
You can always run an Experiment (found in Optimization> Experiments) and see if blocking your ads generates more revenue or not.
You can also test whether displaying 50% of your total ads compared to 100% of the ads produces more revenue.
Google Adsense experiments generally last 30 to 40 days, up to 100 days (depending on your experiment and traffic).
For example, I am running the experiment of blocking certain categories and, as you can see below, I have already started to see some good results (unfortunately, Adsense policies prevent me from sharing the exact numbers).
I hope you have found this list of high cost per click keywords useful.
I also hope you liked the strategy to find keywords from which your competitors get money. If you want additional tools to find keywords, go to my list of SEO tools.
Creating a high-revenue blog is a combination of choosing a solid niche, doing SEO on your articles and having fun while doing it.
