Here are some more profit pattern statistics from another one of my sites.

This second site did only $376 in Adsense for all of 2008, making that a meager daily average of just $1.03.

Despite the low revenue I think we can still glean a lot of patterns that will help us in our search for similar performing keywords, at least in terms on getting onto page one of Google.

Quoted Keyword Search
For this site I actually had several keyword phrases that ranked well on the first page of Google. I’ll refer to them as KW1, KW2, and KW3.

KW1 – less than 275,000 for a quoted search
KW2 – less than 200 for a quoted search
KW3 – less than 600 for a quoted search

Unquoted Keyword Search

KW1 – about 400,000 unquoted search
KW2 – about 100,000 unquoted search
KW3 – about 200,000 unquoted search

Backlinks of Competition

KW1 – average number of backlinks for each of the top 10 sites = 81
KW2 – average number of backlinks for each of the top 10 sites = 18
KW3 – average number of backlinks for each of the top 10 sites = 5

PageRank of Competition

KW1 – average page rank for the top 10 sites = 1.4
KW2 – average page rank for the top 10 sites = 1.1
KW3 – average page rank for the top 10 sites = 1.4


KW1 – 6510
KW2 – 8
KW3 – 7

Amount of Content
This site is another WordPress blog with 9 posts and 4 pages.

Each page and post has either my main keyword or an LSI term in the title.

As mentioned above this site only did about $1 / day in Adsense for all of 2008. Although it got a reasonable amount of clicks per day, the per click payout from Adsense was quite low.

Adsense Layout
I have just one Adsense block on the site that appears on each page and post — a 336 x 280 block in the upper left hand corner.

I also had a ClickBank book affiliate link which made nil and eBaypartner listings since April 2008 which made only about $4.00 in total. :(

Summary and Comparison

Keyword 1 statistics seemed to be a bit of an outlier as far as the quoted and unquoted search strings. If we consider the average page rank, backlinks, and allintitle figures then we can see those numbers tend to fit within the statistics so far of the site in the first example.

top 10 competitive back links – less than 30
top 10 page rank average – less than 2
allintitle: – less than 500

So if you can find a keyword phrase with similar statistics there may be a decent chance that you can rank on page one of Google without too much work.

If you have any patterns of your own you would like to share, then please leave a comment.
