    If only there were more Asbestos, Tax, Personal Injury, and Mortgage events around the world to index ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for giving up the most listed Keywords

  3. $54.33 mesothelioma lawyers I think Mesothelioma laywers has been the most expensive keyword phrase out there for over two years (I recall reading it was around 90.00 dollars per click a couple of years ago).

    Every so often I get the desire to click on home consolidation ads, they’re so annoying anyway – I don’t really care all that much if it costs someone else 50 bucks.

  4. Hmm, what are the moral implications of profiting off of the disease that killed my mother?

    And least it would have an emotional hook.

    I am surprised that someone would be willing to pay such high prices for these words, just to click.

    ‘_____’ and their money is soon parted.

    This explains the abundance of mesothelioma blogs!
    Current top bid on Yahoo for “mesothelioma”:

    Advertiser’s Max Bid: $35.76

    I browsed the web last night and found this exact content on Digg (posted by user fw22, site maintainer of Cwire). It seems to me that fw22 is committing click fraud by culling news stories with these top 160 key phrases then creating a blog with the details so Google’s crawler will add the relevant advertisements to his webpage.

  8. Jaclyn says:

    UPDATE: the site name is actually CyberWyre, which I shortened and mistyped as Cwire.

    Also, the concern some bloggers have, myself included, is whether or not it is legal to create a post containing the highest paying adwords, knowing eventually that Google’s crawler will pick up on the terms and generate like advertisements. I’ve read over the terms and conditions for Adsense to see if I could clarify the issue and believe I have an answer but would like to know the opinions of others as well.

    I’m amazed that a credible site like this one would link to a google adsense spam site.

    It’s obvious those listings are a draw for clicks. Plus I highly doubt those rates.

    A made-for-Adsense (MFA) site is not click fraud by any stretch of the imagination. MFA is a very common phenomenon that is condoned by the ad networks and presumably the advertisers, else the latter would turn off content partners (in Google’s parlance). I think the logic works like this: the visitor is looking for, say, click fraud related content; sees scraper crap and then clicks an ad to find more credible information about click fraud. Result: both advertiser and MFA scraper are happy.

    It is interesting to note that John is running Yahoo ads, not Adsense, for it suggests to me that either A*quest was silly enough to choose to display its ads outside the US or that Yahoo does not have a way to restrict publication within a desired region.

  11. Thats interesting Asbestos, Tax, Personal Injury, lawyer and Mortgage looks like to be the best profession to be in ๐Ÿ™‚

    I compare some of these highest paying adwords to ovature and found that the bids varies and prices drops dramatically so its very fine tune to get maximum bid amount.

    Its also about traffic, high paying ads, location and content, if you want to know more check out the ebook at quality content at discounted prices.

    I am just curios because I have came across Mesothelioma Lawyers several times on various sites and generally it is just referencing the fact of the adword price. Most of these post seem a year old or older. Is there a free tool or site available to determine the going bid rates for current adwords? Does anyone know, if so forward the link.
