Highest CPC Keywords and Best Adsense Niches – 2022

Making money online can be quite hard, especially if you are looking to monetize your blog solely via ads.

To be a successful Adsense publisher you need a lot of traffic but you also need that traffic to engage with the ads that are being displayed on your site.

The AdSense CPC that you get paid will depend on the topics that you write about.

In the world of blogging, you can either write articles that will compete for clicks that will pay a few cents or be strategic and write content that will pay the big bucks.

If you are serious about making money online with Adsense and building a successful business, I suggest you target these top paying keywords and industries.

Also, I suggest you try Ezoic to automatically automize your ads.

I broke down this post by:

  • Top paying Adsense keyword industries
  • Types of ads that pay the most
  • Exact long-tail keywords that have insane CPCs
  • 4 Bonuses to make even more money with Adsense

Here are the top 10 highest paid Adsense keywords for 2022 (by industry/niche):

  1. Insurance $61 CPC
  2. Gas/Electricity $58 CPC
  3. Loans $50 CPC
  4. Mortgage $46 CPC
  5. Attorney $48 CPC
  6. Lawyer $42 CPC
  7. Donate $42 CPC
  8. Conference Call $42 CPC
  9. Degree $40 CPC
  10. Credit $38 CPC

Why do these Adsense keywords pay so much?

Because the companies behind the ads have a high customer value and can afford to spend a few hundred bucks to acquire a customer. It all boils down to their business economics.

So, how can you profit from this data and rake in thousands of dollars each month?

Let’s run through a hypothetical example.

  1. You notice that insurance-related blogs will carry a high CPC.
  2. You then research a few keywords and find that “car insurance companies” pay decently well.
  3. You get to write the best article you can on car insurance companies
  4. With an amazing on-page SEO, you are able to get your blog post high on google rankings,
  5. You get a good amount of high-quality organic traffic to your site and then monetize into more Adsense revenue.

Which Adsense ads pay the most?

In addition to picking the best niche for Adsense, you also have options as to which ad type to show. The options are: 1) text & display 2) matched content 3) in-feed and 4) in-article.

In my own experiments, I’ve found higher click-through rates with native in-article ads. Those ads perform the best on any of my sites.

The in-article ads will naturally blend with your content and display midway through your blog post. I like these types of ads because they are contextual and usually receive a good amount of clicks.

Sidebar ads are not as good since we are already trained to tune them out.

You can also try Matched Content if you have other content you’d like to promote.

Pro tip: Use Auto Ads by Google

Adsense Auto Ads take advantage of machine learning and place themselves automatically on your site where Google thinks they will perform well.

Google has been testing the Auto Ads feature as a beta since September of 2017 and recently (early March) released this feature to everyone.

Since Google has millions (if not billions) of sites to test, they will most likely be better than you or me when figuring out the right type and placement of the ads.

The only downside of this is that you won’t have much control of how many ads are shown or where they are placed, which if you are picky, might annoy you.

To set up Auto ads on your site, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. In the left navigation panel, click My ads.
  3. Click Auto ads.
  4. On the “Choose your global settings” page, use the controls to select the ad formats that you’d like to show.
  5. Leave Automatically get new formats selected if you want AdSense to automatically add new ad formats to your global settings as they become available.
  6. Click Save.
  7. On the “Place code on your page” page, click Copy code.
  8. Paste the ad code between the <head> and </head> tags of each page where you want to show Auto ads. If you’re not sure how to do this, see Google’s Code implementation guide.

Which exact keywords pay the most CPC on Adsense?

SEMrush did a nice study on some of the best keywords by country here.

If you are looking for exact top paying keywords such as mesothelioma which pays $1000+ per click, you can check out the list compiled of 1M+ AdSense keywords by GrepWords. For instance, they reported the ultimate top paying keyword “mesothelioma survival rates” at $1006.56 per click.

Here are a few of my favorite top paid keywords per industry found through SEMRush (data for the past 5 years):

Mesothelioma Keywords sorted by CPC

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that lines the lungs, stomach, heart, and other organs, and unfortunately can’t be cured. Nevertheless, treatment can help reduce the pain. People that contracted mesothelioma did so at their jobs so that is why you see searches like “mesothelioma attorneys”, “mesothelioma law firms” and “mesothelioma compensation”.

This is a very competitive keyword set so unless you can outrank WebMD and MayoClinic, I suggest you look for other industries.

Top Paying Keywords for the Lawyer Niche

Being a lawyer must be nice. You get to dress in a suit (which I love) and you also get to afford to spend exorbitant amounts of money for website traffic. Not too shabby.
