On Google, the minimum bid for a search term is a nickel, but that is about the only price that is stable. The rest rise and fall depending on what companies are bidding at any given moment as they try to tweak their positions on the results pages. One of the most expensive search terms these days is "mesothelioma," a type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Top bids for the word hover above $30, a premium price. The reason: The ads are for pricey legal or medical help.

Kruger's goal is to bid high enough so that AT&T Wireless shows up among the first several ads whenever the phrase "cellular phone" is searched. Yesterday morning, that meant AT&T Wireless was bidding around $1.49 to get the prominence Kruger sought.

"The pricing absolutely changes and varies very widely," Kruger said. "It is still the wild West out there in the search world today."

If you have your own website, Google's adsense is a good way to earn a little income without annoying pop-up or Flash ads. That's why we use them. I just thought it was interesting to see what the highest paying keywords are. We don't get anything close to that. <_<
