CPC stands for Cost Per Click and within Ahrefs this metric shows the estimated bid (in US dollars) for a given keyword. 

CPC is a very dynamic metric, because advertisers can raise or lower their bids anytime. Therefore, the number that you see in Ahrefs should be treated as an average, because we don’t update our CPC data very often.
