Which Blog Topics Have The Best Payout From Google Adsense?

Whether you’re doing well with your first blog, or not so well, you may be looking for another source of online money. Ever since I started blogging, I’ve heard of people making tens of thousands of dollars each month from niche websites. When I started a few of my own, the results were not nearly as stellar…. What was I doing wrong? How could I increase my monthly earnings?

Income For Niche Sites

If you’re wondering what a niche site is, it’s simply a website that contains valuable information on a specific topic. Also, they don’t need to be updated very often once the information is set and in place, so it becomes a sort of passive income as well!

In the early stages, niche sites basically depend solely on Google Adsense for their earnings. This can be good or bad, depending on the topic of your blog.

What Topics Earn The Most?

Certain topics pay more than others simply because the advertisers are willing to pay more. These advertisers will pay more simply because they expect to earn much more from the sale of their product. Let’s take a look at the top 10 list, and then I’ll explain further:

  1. Insurance (keywords could be something like, “buy car insurance online” or “auto insurance quotes”)
  2. Loans (keyword could be, “cheapest homeowner loans”)
  3. Mortgage (“remortgage with bad credit”)
  4. Attorney (“personal injury attorney”)
  5. Credit (“bad credit home buyer”)
  6. Lawyer (“personal  injury lawyer”)
  7. Donate (“donating a used car”)
  8. Degree (“criminal justice degrees online”)
  9. Hosting (“managed web hosting solution”)
  10. Claim (“personal injury claim”)

After reviewing the list, it makes complete sense why these keywords would pay out the most doesn’t it? Just take a look at the top 3 – Insurance, Loans, and Mortgage. On a single click of their link, these companies could earn between $2,000 and $100,000+!! I can see now why they might pay more for a link through Google Adsense.

How to Benefit From This Information

If you understand how to create a blog, then you could quickly set up a few sites that have the potential of earning some major profits. In order to do this, it would be wise to tailor your sites to a few of these top keywords. Don’t expect to make millions in the first couple of months though. Before you strike it rich, you’ll have to get more traffic! The more eyeballs you have on your site, the more chances you’ll have at them clicking on your ads, which then equates to more earnings. Focus on targeting these keywords, and then do everything you can to increase your visitor numbers!
