Earn $1000 An Hour With AdSense: Massive AdSense Success!

This article is about how to earn $1000 an hour with AdSense.  Does that get your attention?  It does mine!

It sounds like one of those ads that you see from marketers, doesn’t it:  “Earn $1,000 a day with AdSense” or something like that.

Those who read this blog may at first be disenchanted.  “Nobody can do that,” you think.  If you make $1,000 per hour, and work 8 hours a day, then you would be earning $8,000 a day with AdSense.  Maybe I should have titled the article that 😉 .

I know that those who read my make money with AdSense blog are the real deal.  They are not the type who believe the hype of doing practically nothing and then earning a boatload of money.

So, why am I writing a post that is similar to many embellished ads that we see?  I am writing this article because it’s true.

I am not telling you that you can earn an AdSense income of this size without doing anything.  When we talk about making money online, those of you who are sensible know that you have to work for money that is earned online.  Aside from a few lucky avenues you may find that can use to Make Money Online Fast, most of money earned online is money that is made from hard work.

So, why the outrageous title?  Well, I’m getting to that.

Before I answer the $1000 an hour question, I want you to ask yourself:  “Do you really think that this is possible?”  Earning $1000 an hour online?  Seriously?  That is a huge amount of money.

I remember when I first started and I saw all of those bold but bogus claims of earning so much money through the AdSense Affiliate program.  I was drawn in by a few of them.  Who could not be?  They promise grand returns with simple plans.  The only problem is that everybody else, and their mother, are doing those same things.

When you do these programs, as i believe that I have mentioned before, the only person who is getting rich is the creator of the program.  You will be stuck earning your paltry $5 a day and wondering what you are doing wrong and why everyone else in testimonials is earning giant income.

Well, those testimonials are probably false…or they took the first few people who signed up to the top and everyone else who tried those strategies was too late.

This is truthfully why most people quit the making money online game early.  They are promised riches that are never delivered and they become disillusioned with the whole process.

But, I am here to tell you:  You can make money with AdSense and you can earn $1000 an hour with AdSense.

There it is again.  That bold claim.

I feel like that I am writing one of those pitch pages…you know the ones…the ones that have no sidebars and no links off the page that do everything that they can do to keep you on their page to buy their product.  Then, when you try to leave the page, they say, “Wait, we have a discount for you.”  You know what i am talking about.  Pages like this.

They all have good stories, don’t they.  I was down and out until I discovered BLAH, BLAH, BLAH…  You can succeed just like I did.

Well, look around at this page.  I am not trying to sell you anything.

Luckily, you have just found someone who likes to write and write about experiences with AdSense.

And I am telling you that IT IS possible to earn $1,000 an hour with AdSense.  Probably not all the time, but definitely on some days.

It all has to do with your AdSense Mindset and whether you are ready to have AdSense success.

To succeed with AdSense, you need to have a whole new mindset.  This is especially true if you are an AdSense beginner.


Because when you begin with AdSense you will make no money.  Earning money with AdSense takes time.  Every single person who has honestly succeeded with AdSense will tell you exactly the same thing.

This is the problem and it is why most people quit trying to earn an income online.  It takes too long.  But, once you start seeing returns, you will be motivated to keep it.  The beauty of passive income is alluring to everybody.

So, what is all this nonsense about $1,000 an hour?

It is not nonsense at all.  It’s absolutely true.  However, you have to change your mindset to the AdSense success mindset to totally understand it.

Let me explain.

When I sit down in the morning to review what I am going to do that day, I don’t ask myself:  “Will I make money with this today?”  You will not.  You simply will not.

I ask myself, “What will I earn on this idea in 1 year, 3 years, 5 years?”  This is the AdSense success mindset.

Example:  Read the last post that I wrote entitled AdSense High Paying Keywords: How To Find Them.  This article is about how to find great AdSense keywords that are not too competitive that will pay you a good return.

Now, let’s say that you can generate 500 hits per day on variations of this term, which you can if you follow all of the steps in how to make money with AdSense.

Ok, now, assuming that you found some good terms, there is the very reasonable possibility that these 500 hits will pay you $5 per day beginning several months from now.  And, if you write a quality article, it will get more and more popular over time.  So, 2 years from now, it will be more popular than 1 year from now because more people will link to it.

“$5 per day?” you ask, “that sucks”.

Well, my friend, you simply don’t have the AdSense Success Mindset.

$5 per day is $1,780 dollars per year.  Assuming that your article(s) has a life span of five years, and in many cases it’s much more, you will earn $8,900 on this one article (or series of articles–this is better!).

Well, how long did it take you to write those articles?  About 7 to 8 hours?

You, my friend, just made yourself $1,000 an hour!

AdSense High Paying Keywords: How To Find Them

This article is about AdSense High Paying Keywords and how to find them.  But more importantly, I will answer the question:  Which are the right AdSense high paying keywords for you?

It’s not difficult to find which AdSense words will pay well.  There are web pages and websites out there dedicated to this one thing.

I remember when I first became interested making money with AdSense and I checked out all of these lists.  At the time I thought, “Oh, I must try to find out how to capitalize on these Google AdSense words that pay a lot.”

But do you know what is the problem with that strategy to make money with AdSense.

Everybody and their mother shares this strategy.  Translation:  There is an insane amount of competition for these high-paying AdSense terms.

Perhaps even more important than the competitive aspect of these terms is another critical part of making money online:  Do you enjoy the topic?  Unless you are one of these people who can work and dislike what you do (which I am not), you simply will not have the passion that is required to make money with AdSense on this particular term.  Read Making Money Online: Do You Have the Time to find out why it can take time to succeed online.

Thus, unless you want to be spending your time on AdSense terms that you do not enjoy, you are better off trying to discover an ideal combination: Keywords that pay relatively well that you actually enjoy writing about.

AdSense High Paying Keywords: The Lists

Let’s look at how many first timers will try to find AdSense terms that make money and why they should rethink this approach.

Here’s is what most of them do. They go to Google and type in AdSense High Paying Keywords.

You see several sites when you type in this term. If you look at the results of this search, notice that their URLs all have the keywords in them. Each of these sites is trying to capitalize on that search term…a good AdSense Practice.

But, the first one that we find that gives us a quick up-front list of Google Top Paying Keywords is here. Now, let’s take a look at some of the Google AdSense words listed here that pay a lot and found out why. Here is a sampling (visit the site for a full listing):

119.63 66.15 law lemon wisconsin
135.94 51.14 hair removal washington dc
121.86 37.29 hair laser removal virginia
121.27 36.59 peritoneal mesothelioma
46.38 36.55 ca lemon law
81.58 34.13 best buy gift card
96.87 31.10 adverse credit remortgage
234.33 30.98 mesothelioma information
48.68 29.77 law lemon ohio
54.31 29.34 att call conference
83.22 29.10 insurance medical temporary
82.33 28.95 illinois law lemon
82.33 28.78 mesothelioma symptoms
60.86 28.51 angeles drug los rehab
36.88 28.26 personal injury solicitor
61.47 28.03 accident car florida lawyer

The numbers that you see in the columns represent the max payment that you receive for clicks and then the average payment that you receive for clicks.

That’s a lot of potential money for clicks…but there are two problems with this list as mentioned above: (1) Everybody is looking at this same list which means competition will be fierce and (2) you might not want to write about any of these topics.

Let’s look at what each of these high paying keywords has in common: They are all either big one time upfront payments, like Laser Hair Removal or something that you will pay a lot for over time through monthly payments like insurance.

We will also find that lawyers pay a lot for AdSense advertising. Why? Well, as with everyone, people who pay a lot for AdSense keywords hope to get a lot in return for their payments.

For example, lawyers always pay a lot for DUI terms, like DUI Attorney and DUI Lawyer. Why? Well, they probably charge their clients anywhere between $10 and $20k for their services so they are willing to pay a lot for a click.

Historically, some of the highest paying Adsense Keywords come when there is a class action lawsuit involved. The word “mesothelioma” comes to mind as this is often listed as one of the highest paying AdSense keywords of all time. I don’t know if it still is and really I don’t care because I will not be making a webpage or site about it.

My point here is this: By looking at these lists of high-paying keywords, you can identify their characteristics and find high-paying–or decently high-paying–AdSense keywords that you actually like to write about.

How To Find Your Own High-Paying Keywords

The people who come up with these lists of AdSense keywords are not performing any type of Rocket Science that you are unable to do yourself. They are simply using freely available tools and then adding each of these words to a database to create a comprehensive list of high-paying keywords.

So, how can you come up with a list yourself? It’s easy…you simply use the Google AdWords Keyword Tool to get an idea of what keywords will pay.

You already know the presiding principle. If the advertiser’s item pays a lot over the short term, or long term, the cost per click has the potential to be quite large. If the item does not cost a lot–or costs nothing–some people simply want to promote their website for visitors, then the cost you receive per click will be lower.

Let’s have a look. Go ahead and visit the Google AdWords Tool. First, put in a keyword or keywords that you would like to write about then put in the verification code and click “get keyword ideas”. Now, you will see a list of words based on your keyword.

To see what keywords will potentially pay, click the “Choose Columns To Display” box and then “Show Estimated Average CPC” and this will tell you approximations for cost per click of each term. Remember, this is the “AdWords” tool and is designed to tell advertisers what they will probably have to pay. You, as an AdSense person will be splitting these AdSense proceeds with Google.

But, it gives you a great idea of what terms will pay.

So, let’s say that you do not want to write about insurance because you could care less about that. You like Beyonce!

So, let’s take a look at keywords for Beyonce. Using this tool, we can see that the average Cost Per Click for Beyonce is $1.05. Not bad…since as we see Beyonce is globally searched for about 68 million times a month. Those AdSense dollars would quickly add up. However, to be realistic, you cannot compete for the term Beyonce…it will probably take you 10 years to even get near the top of Google.

But, don’t just give up!

Notice that you can sort by each of these titles. So, do a sort on “Estimated Avg. CPC”. You can see that “Beyonce Tour Dates” is the highest paying term and searched for quite a bit. Why is this the highest paying Beyonce keyword? Well, think about it. People who are searching for that want to buy tickets…they want to spend money! People simply searching for Beyonce may just want information.

Does “Beyonce Tour Dates” have a lot of competition? Well, one of the tools that I use to determine this is called WordTracker. Test out the free version of Wordtracker here. Using this, we can find great Beyonce terms that people search for all the time and have little competition. Using a tool like this, which is better than Google for “long-tail” keywords, we find that people search a couple thousand of times a day on words like “how tall is beyonce”? And, to find out the competition, you can purchase WordTracker or use many of the other tools out there on the Internet.

AdSense Keywords: Look Towards the Future

You have often heard it said that “once you hear about an idea, it is too late to capitalize on it.” To a degree, this is true with AdSense Keywords though I believe that if you are good at what you do you can always compete with most keywords.

However, think about this…who will be the next Beyonce? If you create a website right now about that person, and they get even semi-famous, you can really capitalize on it.

Here’s an idea: Watch the next season of American Idol. After the first show, pick who you will think will win. Next, create a website with theirnameonline.com or something like that and write all about them. Then, when they get famous, you get rich! Like that idea?

Just imagine…what if you did that after viewing the first season of Idol and now had the leading site for Kelly Clarkson. Result: $$$.

AdSense High Paying Keywords: Summary

There are ample lists that you can find on the Internet about which AdSense keywords pay the most. Using Wordtracker or the Google Keywords Tool, you may be able to find a way to be competitive in the niche.

However, this is not the best way to succeed using AdSense.

I recommend identifying the topics that you love most and determining how you can succeed in this market. Use the Google Keyword Tool to find out what AdSense pays for the keywords that you will go after.

And remember, the higher paying the keyword, the more competition there will be.

Would you rather have a big slice of the millions of searches for Beyonce or a small slice of the thousands of searches for DUI attorneys in Atlanta?

Both are good. One makes a lot of money because it brings in a lot of traffic and the other can make a lot of money based on a few very pricey clicks.

Bottom line: With just about every topic, there is a way to make AdSense money. Find what you love to write about, become an authority, generate inbound links, and you will succeed with AdSense.

AdSense and Ad Relevance: Beyond Section Targeting

In my article called how to make money with AdSense about the fundamentals of making money with AdSense, I mention that one of the fundamental steps to earning income online through AdSense is to optimize the ads on the page.

There are several steps that you can take to ensure that this happens.

Of course, step number one is to write content about a certain subject.  If your AdSense article rambles all over the place, the AdSense robot will never know what ads should go with your article.  This is a particular pain for me sometimes because I like to use analogies and comparisons which don’t lend themselves well to an AdSense Relevance.

For example, you might say something to the effect of “I feel like a salmon swimming upstream when I am trying to make money online”.  Well, that may illustrate well some of the challenges with making money online but it has one unfortunate side-effect.  You may get AdSense Ads about salmon, which of course you do not want.  You want to have ads about earning a living online.

So, what can you do about this?

Well, one thing that you can do is use AdSense Section Targeting.  As I wrote about in the article entitled AdSense Section Targeting: How To Use It On Your Blog, this is a great way to filter out content that you do not want the AdSense Ad Bot to consider.  For example, I use it on my how to video site because that site covers a wide variety of topics.  Thus, I use AdSense Section Targeting there to filter out all of the content that is not from the article, like the sidebars and footer for example.

I do the same on my Live Your Way blog which truly addresses every topic under the sun because, basically, I am interested in just about everything.  However, a blog such as this make money with AdSense blog does not need this type of section targeting to generate Ad Relevance because this blog topic is singular in nature so the ads should always be relevant.

But sometimes AdSense Section Targeting is simply not enough to ensure Ad Relevance.  Sometimes, more is needed to be done to make the AdSense Ads relevant to the topic at hand.

For those just beginning with AdSense, let me tell you why this is important, which may or may not be obvious.  People who have found your page through the search engines want information on the topic that they searched for.  If the ads that appear are not relevant, your visitors will simply not click them and you will not make any money.

So, what is an instance in which you effectively implement AdSense Section Targeting and still get ads that are not relevant?

Well, I will illustrate with this example and I will block out this example using section targeting so that the ads on this page will not be based on the following text (see HTML code for how I did this).

As a huge golf fan, this whole Tiger Woods incident fascinated me so I wrote about it in an article entitled Tigers Woods Human After All: Golf, Infidelity, and Voicemails? and this page to date has been accessed more than 100,000 times, which could produce some decent AdSense revenue.

However, this was not the case because the ads that appeared were not relevant.

Why? Because I mentioned the word “crash” a lot as the whole ordeal was precipitated by a crash that Tiger Woods had that led to this nationwide scandal. Also, I often referred to him as Tiger instead of Tiger woods which led to the AdSense bot thinking that the article might be about tigers–the animal.

Thus, in an article about Tiger Woods, I would see ads about “car crashes” and “tigers at the zoo”.

So, what can you do to overcome this Ad Irrelevance.

I basically did two things to get the ads more relevant. First, I changed most incidents of the word “crash” to something else, like incident. I then changed Tiger to Tiger Woods and I made sure that the term golf was boldfaced in certain locations.

In performing these steps, I was able to achieve a measure of ad relevance that I did not have before.

These were all minor changes to the content that did not effect the flow of the article but did ad relevance to the advertisements.

I have heard many people say that ads are simply not relevant and that the Google Ad Bot does not work. Well, yes it does.

You just have to check the content to make sure that you are emphasizing the proper words.

I have solved this problem in other ways too…stay tuned for a future article on removing particular advertisers to achieve ad relevance.

AdSense Tips: Stop Checking Your AdSense Account

When we look at how to make money with AdSense, there is one mistake made by beginners–and often advanced users–all the time:  Constant Checking of Your AdSense Account.

Why is this a mistake?

Because it takes away from what you should be doing!!!

As I wrote in Making Money Online: Do You Have the Time?, you cannot simply write an article and it will generate a ton of AdSense income.  Making money with AdSense takes times.

Usually, when people are constantly checking their AdSense account, they are hoping in vain that somehow they are going to have hit the jackpot that day on some post that they have created. 

Folks, it ain’t gonna happen!  Well, I suppose that there is an isolated chance that it could but usually it will not happen. 

I am not saying that you should not check your AdSense account.  In fact, there is a lot to be learned from doing so.  However, most people are checking their AdSense accounts simply hoping that today will be the big payday. 

They are doing like a raindance–hoping beyond logic that some external forces will make this the day that money rains down on them. 

If you are just starting with AdSense, you are not going to make much money.  It’s a simple matter of statistics and you can find those statistics in your web log files. 

How many people are accessing your website everyday?  100, 200, 500, 1000?  Well, that’s not enough.  You can plan on making probably about $2-15 per one thousand users each day.  Yes, I know it is a wide range but there are many factors too consider:  Are the AdSense ads relevant?  Are they ads properly placed?  Is it a high-paying AdSense topic? 

So, let’s say on average that you are going to make about $5 per 1000 visitors to your site.  Do you need to visit your AdSense every hour of the day to see if you earned an extra 5 cents in the last hour?

Here’s is how you win over time.  Create compelling content that people want to read and make sure people know about through an inbound link program.  To learn the essence of making money with AdSense, visit my initial article called how to make money with AdSense which teaches how to enter the AdSense game and make money from it.

Checking your AdSense account every hour will only divert you from what you should be doing!

AdSense and Ad Blindess: The Future of Google AdSense

In this article, I am going to take a look at AdSense and ad blindness and what this means for the future of Internet Advertising and, in particular, Google AdSense.

I have read articles ad nauseam about the best place to put Google AdSense ads.  In reality, there is no one exact answer because every website looks different.  The best way to find out what works best for you is to take a look at the Google AdSense Heat Map (which is Google telling you where to place ads…and they wouldn’t like because they have skin in the game too), test out ad placements on your particular site, and track their performance using Google AdSense Channels.  This will tell you how ads perform very quickly for your particular situation.

However, this article is not about the best place to put ads so that people will click on them.  This article asks the question:  In the future, will people click on AdSense Ads at all?

I have thought about this for awhile.  Obviously, if you base your much of your earnings on Internet Advertising, the future of Internet Advertising is of great importance.

Over time, since the advent of Internet Advertising began to take hold in the mid 90’s, many people learned to differentiate between the actual content of a page and the content that was advertising.  Most of these people would simply ignore the ads and focus on the content.  This behavioral pattern became known as ad blindness

Obviously, ad blindness effects everybody who is in the business of making money online through Internet advertising.

Another fact is this:  Computer savvy users are more ad-blind than non computer savvy users.   

This fact is not a mystery to anybody.  However, let’s look at the logical leap of this statement as it relates to the future of Internet advertising. 

The older non computer savvy users are dwindling in numbers.  We will soon reach an era that is 100% full of computer savvy users.  Thus, who will be left to click on AdSense Ads or Internet Ads in general.

In an article that I was reading called What is Google, the author points out a perfect example of this as he questions the actual future of Google. 

The author asked his mom and his sister to each view a webpage that he had created.  He noticed that his mom–the non computer savvy user–clicked on lots of ads.  However, the sister–the computer savvy user–did not click on any ads.

Does this situation spell the end of AdSense ads and Internet advertising as we know it? 

It’s not an unreasonable question to ask.

However, advertisers continue to “up their game”.  How do I know?  Well, this morning as I was updating my copying DVDs website, I saw an ad for an MTV toolbar that can be installed in your browser and I wanted to click it.  I really wanted to click it!  But obviously, I couldn’t because it was my website. 

So, as someone who is computer savvy and normally ad blind, I still find myself tempted to click on well-presented ads from these Internet advertisers who have upped their game

Do you?

AdSense and Thesis Theme: Placing An Ad in the Header, Addendum

In this article, I am going to explain how to place an AdSense Ad in between the site name and tagline in the Thesis WordPress theme.

I just wrote a piece entitled AdSense and the Thesis WordPress Theme which you may want to read before this one.  This explains how to place ads in the Thesis theme.

After having just re-read the article, I began tinkering again with AdSense and the Thesis Theme.  In particular, I wanted to experiment with placing a 468 x 60 graphical AdSense unit in between the Site Name and the Tag Line in your Thesis Theme header.   
It turns out…it’s rather easy. (You can see it now on this make money with AdSense page…if I have decided to keep it. Update March 16, 2010: I have temporarily removed this because I want to check with Google about it and make sure its ok…any thoughts?)

To begin, look at the HTML code of your site by choosing View | Source in your browser.  Find the header section which should look something like this:

<div id="header">
<p id="logo">
<a href="http://makemoneywithadsense.thisishowyoudoit.com">Make Money With AdSense</a></p>
<p id="tagline">Making Money With Google AdSense From Someone Who Does It</p>

Now, simply copy the lines that exist between the DIV tags.

Next, go into your WordPress Presentation section and bring up your Thesis OpenHook plugin page. Visit my previous article to find out how great the Thesis OpenHook Plugin and install it right now if you have not.

Now, on the Thesis Open Hook plugin page, place these lines in the “header” section–make sure that you do not add the lines themselves as this will screw up your formatting.

Next, ad your 468 x 60 AdSense code in between the two lines.

Lastly, be sure to check the box that says “Remove Thesis Default Header”.

Now, you have an AdSense graphical ad between your site name and tagline in the Thesis WordPress Theme.

I have never placed an add in this location before but it may work out well as people navigate back to your home site and get enticed by the graphic that they see there.

I will let you know how it turns out.
