Keywords within mortgage, banking, insurance and gambling sectors have been well known to be some of the most expensive keywords for years and feature on the list that we’ve put together. But what about ‘psychic connect’, ‘google adwords expert’, ‘office space London’ or ‘streaming music sites free’? We bet you weren’t expecting some of these terms to have a suggested bid of over €10 and in some cases over €25!
We based our research on Google’s keyword tool, and we’ve pre-selected the Irish market. Our data showed that financial-based keyword groups are by far the most expensive, particularly those in the gambling sector.
Top 3 highest suggested bid keywords were:
- ‘Best online slots casinos’ – suggested bid of €177.96
- ‘Rulete online’ – suggested bid of €141.94
- ‘Online casino games’ – suggested bid of €110.13
In most cases, keywords that have a high suggested bid are thought to be likely to produce long-term returns.
We must also mention at this point that Google says the recommended bid is ‘only an estimate, and your actual CPC may vary,’ which, from our own experience, we would agree with. We always use the suggested bid to get an idea of how expensive or cheap or a market is overall, and seldom base the maximum CPC’s that we set for new keywords on these figures, as ACTUAL CPC’s (when the campaigns are live) can vary widely from what their original suggest bid was.
