How Much Could Your Injury Be Worth?

If you’ve just fallen over a loose paving stone in the street or been hit by falling boxes at work you may be more interested in getting your injury seen by a doctor than anything else. But when you’re all fixed up wouldn’t you like to know what you could potentially gain from the situation? Namely cold hard cash? Luckily there is an entire industry of legal experts dedicated to making sure you get full and fair recompense for your unfortunate situation, especially if it was entirely not your fault. They can fight your corner against whoever it is that hold responsibility for your industry and get you compensation.

How much however depends on the severity of the injury.   Here are some typical injuries and how much they are effectively worth:   Bang on the Head   There are many situations where you might receive a knock on the head; you may work on a building site where you weren’t given a hard hat; you could get hit by some dodgy shelving put up in a shop; you could even get hit by falling debris from a roof on your high street.

  • A minor head wound could get you between £1,500-7,000. Some minor brain damage could mean you are owed £8,000- 23,500. And severe brain damage would mean you could stand to gain £155,000-220,000.

Injured Fingers We all use our fingers no matter what job we do (try and think of one where you don’t) so it is inevitable that your fingers are highly likely to get hurt in an accident. They could get burned in a kitchen; maybe crushed in a factory or even chopped off on a farm.

  • By injuring your fingers you could be due compensation anywhere from £1,000 all the way up to £75,000.

Neck and/or Back Injury Car accidents are one of the most common ways for people to injure themselves or indeed to get injured through no fault of their own. And amongst car accidents getting rear-ended is the most likely thing to cause neck or back injuries.

  • A whiplash style neck injury or even in severe cases a neck fracture would mean that your compensation might be between £1,000 and £250,000. So you better check your brake lights. Back injuries can also occur during car accidents as well as other physical work related situations (e.g. lifting heavy stuff) whereupon you may be able to claim between £4,250 and £93,000.

Now this is certainly not an excuse to go looking for accidents and a quick pay day, but it is a reminder that if you are unlucky enough to get hurt in one of these common ways, you will know the sort of compensation you could be in line for.

How Google AdSense publishers get paid

AdSense payment is made either on monthly basis or after particular hold. Google don’t delay the payment if publishers exceed the threshold limit of payment. Payment threshold depends on type of currency chosen to display the AdSense earning in publisher account. For example, it is $100 for U.S. Dollars and €70 for Euro etc. The finalized earning can be little less than the live display of earning of last month. This is because Google validates the accuracy of earning at the end of each month which involves detailed activities on your account. Finalized earning is displayed on the account on 8th day of next month. If publishers crossed the payment threshold Google pay the publisher though their chosen way.

However, even after crossing the payment threshold payment can only be made if you have fulfilled the following 3 requirements.

  • Given Tax Information details
  • Process of address verification is complete

Here you can get payment details containing payment number, payment amount, currency exchange rate and Blue Dart Tracking number. Blue Dart website ( can be used to track your delivery.

Strategies for successful advertising the site and earning at same time

Online advertisement can be an effective way to buy traffic at cheap rate (through placing advertisements) and sell it high (through ads). Google AdWords and Yahoo Overture are the most effective to drive traffic to any site. Both allow display of your ads on top of their search results. You can choose particular keywords for targeting visitors to your website. You have to pay certain price for per click.

1. Yahoo Overture: Yahoo Overture is the way of sponsored search which allows appearance of you ads on Yahoo and number of other search engines like Metacrawler, Dogpile, Excite, iVillage etc.

Choice of proper keyword is very important to drive traffic. Otherwise you will get non-targeted visitor who are not interested in your contents and it leads to lower profit. The frequency of the appearance of advertisements depends on how much advertiser is willing to pay for that particular keyword. However same keywords can be targeted for different prices. Certain keywords have a wide range of bid prices. If your site has content related to such keywords, you can use it to target new visitors. Distribution of prices for particular keyword varies with time.

Overture provides a way to see the current values of particular keywords. It shows how much company is paying for per click on that keyword. Whatever price you get from the advertiser when a visitor clicks on those ads, you will receive only a part of the part. There is always share of the Google and Yahoo, depending on whose network you are using. They never disclose how much their share is. However on average it around 22.5%. Therefore if you offer to pay 10 cents for a click to your site for particular keyword and show ads for $2.0, then you will make $1.45 for every click [(2-(0.10+0.45), here 0.10 is decided by you while 0.45 is Yahoo’s share]. It means that you will make profit of $1.45 for every 10 cents you spend. But this calculation assumes that every visitor is going to click on the ads. It is not the case. Generally only 3-5 % visitors click on the ads. Therefore you may be at lose or profit depending on the frequency of clicks. Bid of 10 cents per click will cost you $10 for every 100 visitors. Suppose only two visitor click on the ads then you will get only $2.9 ($1.45×2) in return. Therefore you should always look for keywords where you bid price while maximum bid price is very high. Otherwise you will be at losing.

2. Google AdWords: Google ads appear on the basis of bids. Your bids should be high enough to compete. You should bid the minimum possible per click to keep your profits high. However if you expect higher returns when a visitor come to your site then you can bid more.

Google keyword tool not only show current top bids on particular keywords but it also show top bids for other similar keywords. It provides a way to bring traffic with a particular keyword and send the outward traffic (via ad) through other related high paying keyword. Except this all other things are similar between Overture and AdWords.

Any network you use for advertisements, the price you pay to get the visitor should not be less than revenue generated from such visitor. To raise the interest of the visitor on those ads you can mention about those keywords (for which advertisements are shown) in your content. As you know the keyword for which ads is displayed you can easily do this. To bring the highest paying ads you have to target particular section of your website which can display those high paying ads. It is required as all sections of your site may not have the proper keywords with high earning potential. Also try to keep the ad unit as small as possible; larger ad unit will display more ads and the difference between their CPC (cost-per-click) may be huge. This may lead to wastage of the click value.
