I have a blog which ranks on the 4th page of Google now for a 200,000+ global monthly searches' keyword. Currently, it does not bring any significant traffic rise, but I want to know how much profit can I make if my website is ranking on the first page for the keyword.
I'm only using Google adsense advertising for monetization. Google adwords tells me that the CPC for the keyword is $1.4.
I have spent more than 6 months of hefty content-writing for the website without any profit yet, and I want to know how much of a return on investment (profit), should I expect if I work even harder till the website gets to the first page on google.
I also want to know that would it be wiser to switch my keywords if it gets impossible to rank on the first or second page of google, because of corporate competition, and that I should switch my keywords, even if I am so close?
Thanks alot for your time
