Well this table has been around for quite a while but just wanted to share it here at netbuilders for those who haven't seen it, it might be useful for webmasters who build websites.
I found it while looking for a new idea to develop a new project that could make money and at the same time within my interests other wise it's just boring to run a site about something you hate even if it's making money.
If you wanna view the complete list go to the original article.
Hotels and travel ALL THE WAY. I know its going to be awesome for me this year.
cool, which hotel website do you own?
That seems to be a great list, thanks!
I think my next projects would be a cars forum, mma portal and web design blog plus a few proxy related projects.
Thx for the list, still I don't see it anywhere near reality, specially the cost per click column.
Example: auto and car - it shows $7.28 and $5.09 respectively
I own 17 car related websites serving over half a million pages per month and my average adsense click is currently @ $0.18...
Well I don't know about that, but that's the average. A car ad could be paying 0.18 per ad while others are paying $5.00, it's our job or purely luck to get the top paid ads on our sites.
Proxy sites as an example. The average is like $0.08 or less per click but I've received up to $5.00 for just 1 click, obviously this happens very rarely. I guess you have to target the right advertiser who's paying the most for the ads.
In fact this year's average for a few million page impressions is below that ($0.1747)
Of course there might some advertisers paying $5 per click, but there are many paying a couple cents only, and it's not a "luck" game if you ask me.
I'm not trying to bash your thread nor the original post, in fact I've thanked you for it, I'm just trying to clarify a few things before I see a bunch of people starting to develop sites about whatever just because it says CPC=$xx when the hard reality is far from that, probably in the 5%-10% area of it.
Just a little extra something; if you check the original post you can see stay paying $15.51, Google adwords tool shows $4.19.

Also as a general suggestion.. Don't jump on these keywords at all. Why? Because this is a domainers trap, you get plenty of competition while there are unexplored niches ready to be hit big time. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy proxy sites, car sites etc, but it is not where the big opportunity lies IMHO.
