Making a side income is something we all love to do, let it be a micro niche blog or an AdSense blog or may be a small e-book or a product. When it comes to micro niche blogs which are primarily focused on AdSense as the core revenue source, high CPC keywords are necessary.

High CPC Keywords

Trust me, if you’re ranking for around 5-10 high CPC keywords then you’ll see big dollars coming into your Google AdSense account. CPC stands for cost per click which means the amount of money you get when someone clicks on your ad after coming through specific parameters.

The advertisers will compete on AdWords bidding to stand on top for a certain keyword which might be potential for them to promote their product or services. These keywords keep on growing and their CPC value will go high.

It doesn’t mean that you’ll get high CPC value for every click, there are certain parameters like the behavior of the user, country which decides the cost per click value. 


Imagine that you’re ranking for a high CPC keyword which comes around $100 for a click, so if a user who is coming perfectly through all these parameters clicks on the advertisement, you’ll earn a share. Because Google pays 68% of the cost to the publisher according to their policies which come around $68 (of course, a good amount per click).
