Click bartering and high paying search terms?
Have only recently joined Affilorama and am wading my way through the mountain of resources. You've done a great job Mark, some fantastic tips and tricks there and I'm learning heaps!
Have just watched video lesson 27, How to Make Big Bucks from Adsense. Can I please ask your opinion on the relative merits of creating a pure Adsense, click bartering site, along the lines of 8bestsites.com, versus an Adsense article site? As you say in the video, the click bartering sites must be making big bucks and are much easier to create than article sites. Do you think article sites produce a better return?
Was also intrigued by the sites that show high paying search terms which on the surface are a fantastic resource for choosing the best subjects for Adsense sites. However came across an article that claim they are a hoax so did a bit of digging. The current highest paying search term on cwire.org is 'austin dwi' at $82.92 but the Overture View Bids tool puts it at $16 (which is still pretty good). However Overture puts the second term on the list, 'school loan consolidation' at just $3.61 as opposed to the claimed $78.01. Even the Google Adwords Keyword Tool that cwire claim to use to get the values from places it in position 1-3 for $11.04.
I guess sites like cwire.org give an indication of high paying search terms but perhaps they have an ulterior motive for over-inflating the PPC amounts?
Would be interested in any thoughts...
