    Mesothelioma Advertisements

    From a newsletter I read.

    Personal-injury law firms searching for clients with asbestos-related claims have bid up the search keyword "mesothelioma" to as much as $100 on Overture and Google. That's compared to $20 for conference-call services and 31 cents for paper clips, the Wall Street Journal reported. "Why is it the highest paying keyword," asked Chris Hahn, executive director of the non-profit Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation in Santa Barbara, Calif. "Because there is nothing more valuable than one mesothelioma patient." A partner with Paul Harley LLP in Berkeley, Calif., Philip Harley, told the paper, "You can overspend. (But) if you spend you get a very nice return. It's a good way (to build a) client base."

    By the way, the Web page on which the Journal Online posted this story had, of course, three advertisements from law firms seeking mesothelioma cases. The ads were delivered by Yahoo's (YHOO) Overture (YHOO).

    How does mesothelioma.to sound?

    I could use it like those redirect services...

    go.to/mysite
    come.to/mysite
    drive.to/myself
    mesothelioma.to/mysite

    'Redirect services for cancer sufferors - mesothelioma.to!'

    You're really too late to get involved with mesothelioma, unless you spam.

    I know I'm stating the obvious, but you have to be one of the first sites on a high-paying topic. Of course, sites can be successful regardless of when you start them, but the Mesothelioma sites are just duplicate content. Unless you have a massive understanding of a topic and create fresh content (like I did with Wireless Phone Reviews, which is why it was successful early in the game), you're most likely going to rely on free content -- like 5,000 other sites.

    What if you can write your own content, feed PR from your PR 7 sites, get a single word domain like 'mesothelioma.to' and are called Chris Beasley?

    There are more topics out there that pay $15+ a click with remotely ZERO competitors (meaning no other optimized sites that want to make a profit).

    You just have to research

    But just HOW do you research? It would take ages to first look at prices, then searches, then how competitive the subject is etc etc.

    If only there was a tool or something to do all this for you

    Yes, and AWS sites, and a couple review sites. I have short term cash flow right now, what I want is long term reliability.
