I think its always a temptation to setup a site, throw some Google AdSense on it and feel good that you're getting $1 a week, if that. But its really short term.
A true affiliate site takes time to build up and get the specific traffic you need to make sales in your niche, but its worth the effort. Im not sure if thats what youre referring to when you say "growing up" but its the more mature approach to affiliate marketing - taking a longer term view of your sales methodology, rather than picking up the crumbs you'll get from ad revenue programs.
High paying keywords are somewhere between low competition and high search results. The best advice I can give is research your niche thoroughly so you know what words your target market are using.
