    Even as an attorney, how many clicks would you need to convert to cover that bear... I knw one settlement can make you, but jeez... Some smaller attorneys are playing with fire on that one.

    Also, hasn't that been the grand daddy of all keywords PPC for several years now? Must be more coal miners around then I thought...

    There's something not healthy about this level of bidding, worse than asbestos (if it can be worse).

    Take a peek at "online casino" or "attorney in (name a state)"
    The last time I looked at these, "online casino" had a max bid of > $100.

    WOW. That is quite a change. It's been a few years since I used Overture. I guess some of those people finally figured out that paying huge amounts for clicks is not profitable.

    I checked other gambling related keywords and they are all under or around $4.00. Even at $4.00 with the level of fraud you have to be sure of your ROI.
