When you're here reading this post, you have quite some knowledge about Google AdSense, a CPC (costs per click) platform. We often start our blogs, create content, build up a readership, and apply for Google Adsense to monetize our efforts.
Next up we realize that our niche or the keywords our blog targets isn't AdSense friendly and thus we end up making only pennies every day that rarely counts to our monthly payments.
The Back end Story
Though it's very common that our hopes gets shattered as the rate per click for those ads displayed, are super low (few cents, may 0.2 - 0.3 cents) which is quite demotivating looking forward to the efforts you put in.
Low CPC can be due to the niche you're in, which isn't quite attractive to the advertisers as a whole and they end up offering very less CPC.
What you could do is to plan thoroughly your future blogs and projects in a way that they are AdSense friendly, if that's the income model you wish to apply.
Even though it's better not to put all eggs in one basket, though if you plan to do so, lets see what options do you have to get something decent out of your niche, which can't be changed now, when you're several months into blogging.
Choose Niche Wisely - Targeting High Paying AdSense keywords
Currently I've limited this post to just technology niche as many youngsters like to blog about tech stuff. So rather than just starting off a generalized tech blog, as by now you already know how hard it is to raise your voice in this noisy Internetosphere.
Though you can bet on niche that targets on long tail keywords that I have listed below. You could either:
1- Choose 2-3 relevant keywords of your choice among these and construct your blog around them to have higher chances of ranking high.
2- Or if you already have a tech blog, you could start publishing more posts around these keywords so that there would be more profitable ads being displayed on those particular posts.
SO without further due, let me share these with you.
