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.
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. The adsense CPC that you get paid will be contingent on the topic that you choose to write about.
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.

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?
As you can see, insurance related blog posts will carry a high CPC. So if you write a perfectly SEO’ed article in which you are discussing car insurance companies and are able to get your blog post high on google rankings, you should be getting a good amount of high quality traffic to your site that will hopefully translate 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.
