Recently I came across blogs writing about highest paying Google Adsense keywords and how if a user factors his/her content around those keywords, can get rich literally overnight. I don’t use Google’s adsense on this blog. My daily hits are steadily rising but they are yet to reach a critical mass. Google’s minimum payment clause means that if you have just gotten into blogging, its going to take a while to hit the magic mark.
But in case you use Google adsense then it is in your interest, economically speaking, to know which keywords pay more than others in order for you to factor in the right content for your site.
According to those blogs, below mentioned are some of the highest paying key words in the Google Adsense program. The blogs claim that by using your content around these words, you can easily double the income and make a lot of money. Sounds tempting and attractive.

ITS A Hoax!!
After reading this and doing a bit of online investigative work myself, I have come to the conclusion that this is nothing but a hoax. You will find a lot of blogs and websites publishing the above list but there is nothing to back up these claims. The source of this list are usually fraudulent websites hoping to attract gullible surfers and getting them to click links on their own websites.
It is an urban myth like one of those chain mail kind of forwards that keep popping up in your inbox time to time. According to various posts on the tech blogs and SEO sites, sponsors pay the highest CPC amount for terms like lawyers, forex etc. But most of these sites lack any credibility.
Standard Google policy dictates that such information is a closely guarded secret and is never made public. People have even tried analyzing Google AdWords program but there is no fool proof way to tell which word will pay the highest.
In one of the forums, one user even goes to the extent of saying that
You shouldn't be building pages for AdSense. You should be putting AdSense ads on pages with lots of good content. Build the pages for the reader, optimize them for the Search Engines, then you will get visitors who are interested in the content and will be interested in the AdSense ads. That is how you get a good CTR and that is how you make money with AdSense.
and I totally agree with that.
