There is one thing that I've always thought about when it comes to AdSense, are all blogs and websites treated the same? If there were two websites with similar views and other stats but were about two completely different topics, would they make the same amount of money through AdSense? The answer may surprise you, but they would get paid different amounts. Turns out, the amount of money you could make through AdSense greatly depends on your niche, or topic.

Before we talk about the different niches, we need to talk about two terms related to advertisements: CPC and CPM. If you run a blog or website and run advertisements, you might be familiar with these two terms. CPC stands for cost-per-click and CPM stands for cost-per-thousand impressions. Every time you see an ad on your website, that would count as an impression. However, just because you see the ad, doesn't mean it meant anything to you. However, if you clicked on it, the website owner would make more money from you. Companies pay website owners more money if they click on the ad because it would more than likely take the person to the company's website. That being said, a fitness company would probably want to advertise on a fitness website. A fitness advertisement might not do too well on a website dedicated to baking cakes!

Let's dig into the top niches that make the most money from AdSense.

Fitness

Like we were just talking about, the fitness industry pays a lot of money to fitness website owners. Some website owners have reported up to a $20 CPC for some of the ads shown on their page. Also, with the new year underway, this might be the best time to start a fitness blog. A lot of people don't make much money through AdSense the first few months of the year since companies aren't willing to drop a lot of money. However, with a lot of people 'trying' to get into fitness at the beginning of the year, they can make a good chunk of money in January.

Finance/Marketing/Business

What do you think of when you hear the term "business person"? If you said money, you would be correct. Businesses, especially people at the top of the chain, make a lot of money, so it would make sense that they would pay a lot for advertisements. A lot of people want to retire early and know how to make more money, so they are the perfect people that businesses want to target!

Online Education and Work From Home

Hit a mid-life crisis? Not sure what you want to do with your life? Then advertisers are going to target you. If you run a blog about working from home, you might be lucky enough to get some advertisements for continuing education or how to work from home.

Technology

Who would have thought that people that talk about expensive products would get such a good CPC/CPM from AdSense? Tech companies get a lot of money for charging over a thousand dollars for a $50 piece of plastic. If you love testing new products or giving updates on big tech companies, you might find that this is the niche for you.

Insurance

One thing that I would have never guessed is that insurance blogs are on the top of this list. While not being that common, insurance companies will pay a lot of money to have their ads on those types of blogs/websites, over a $50 CPC that is.

The boy band who swept a lot of people off their feet back in 2017 are back with their fifth studio album, GINGER. Brockhampton is a boy band originally formed in San Marcos, Texas. The group eventually moved to Los Angeles and grew in popularity.

The first track off the album is NO HALO. Compared to all of the other Brockhampton albums, this is a mellow opener. It starts off with a guitar and high pitched vocals. Throughout the track, members of the group talk about their imperfections and some of the issues they have faced. The title of the track, NO HALO, probably refers to the fact that they aren't perfect people. Merlyn stood out most on this track since …

Of course, Travis Scott was going to release something before the end of the year. JACKBOYS is a hip hop collective consisting of Travis Scott, Sheck Wes, and Don Toliver. Despite the collective only having three members, the EP JACKBOYS has some guest features from Quavo, Offset, and many more.

To start off the album, we have a remix of Travis Scott's HIGHEST IN THE ROOM, which was released earlier this year. If you haven't heard the original, it has a trap beat with a high-pitched vocalist in the background. The remix keeps the chorus and his first verse, but then we have the addition of RosalĂ­a and Lil Baby.…

Album Review: Happiness Begins by Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are a pop/rock band that formed back in 2005. After nearly a 6 year hiatus, they have released their fifth studio album, Happiness Begins.

Sucker was the first single released for the album. After hearing this song, I was actually excited about the Jonas Brothers reuniting. I was never a fan of them when I was in middle school and high school, but I knew I had to give this new album a listen. I actually really enjoyed the first track and it hooked me into the album right away. It's a high energy pop song, something that will definitely gather some air time on the radio. This is a typical love song, where this person loves someone else greatly, and they would do anything for them. The Jonas Brothers might be referring to their wives since all three of them are married.

Cool was the second single released for the album. This song wasn't one of my favorite when first released, but it is growing on me. It opens up with a slow acoustic guitar, and then a drum beat…
