To get a sense of the kind of ads Google would serve up on your website, just enter its URL and click on the "Show Me" button:
When a visitor clicks on a Google Adsense ad, the website gets a small fee, ranging anywhere from 3¢ to $12 per click. Although Google doesn’t release the fees it pays for keywords unless you are an advertiser, you can get a general idea by going to the Overture website and using their View Bids Tool.
So what does this mean? Websites with great content that people want, no matter what the size of operation, will be able to make a few bucks. Power to the people. What else does this mean? Advertising inventory will increase and the rates paid for clicks decrease, thus furthering the downward pressure on the advertising revenue model.
