If you are reading this article, chances are that you have a blog and it is not making money.
You know why?
This blog post is for all those bloggers who started blogging to make some money. But they are disappointed with their blog because it is not generating any expected revenue.
Here in this blog article, I am going to discuss some of the main reasons why you failed with your blog to earn with it and will share some useful tips to get most from your blog.If you try to follow what I am going to share then probably you will likely be successful in making a decent amount of earning from your blog.
Below are the few main reasons which most of the bloggers don’t care about and they failed to make money.
Your Blog Content is not Interesting and Unique Enough:
People on the internet always search for something new and something they don’t know about it. No one will search for stuff that they already know about it.
So if your article has nothing new, interesting and unique, then people will never come to revisit your blog if they didn’t find something special and informative on their first visit.
Many bloggers also just copy stuff from other big blogs or write the same content again and making a little bit changes in it.
You have to keep this in mind that popular blogs become a brand for the world and If you copy something from their blog, then people can easily get an idea that this is the same copy.
Doing so will make no good to your blog, and instead, it will have a bad impact on your visitors, and you can lose most of the traffic.
So I will strongly recommend that before writing an article do some research first. Look what others are writing on the same topic and hence create your unique content by sharing your experiences with the world as well.
So the more attractive and good content you have on your blog, the more people will inspire from your articles and thus increasing the chances of making more money from your blog.
Your Blog is Not Well Optimized:
As a blogger, we must all know that search engine optimization is one of the key factors to index our blog and rank our article well in the search engine result pages.
If you have enough unique content on your blog, but you don’t have SEO skills, then it is sure that your pages are not optimized well, and probably you will not get any traffic.
As we all know that when we search for something in search engines like Google. Everyone will click on the first few links, they got on the search engine result page (SERP).
So its all the game of SEO. You have to do the keyword research first and then learn the skill on how to use the target keyword in your content.
Using your target keyword in the right place in your content will make all your blog content to rank high in the search engines.
Thus optimizing your blog will bring more visitors and massive traffic and we know that the more traffic we will have to our blog, the more chances will be there to make money from our blog.
You Have too Many Ads and Affiliate Links on Your Blog:
Having too many ads and affiliate links on your site hurts your blog.
Being bloggers, we all know that Google Adsense is one of the biggest Ad networks in the market. So it is the greatest joy to approve our blog from Adsense.
Most of the bloggers after getting Adsense approval flood their blog with ads. They put ads in every place where possible having the misconception in their mind the more ads will bring more money to them.
More ads on your blog mean more chances of your AdSense account to be banned.
Stay away from too many ads because not only it increases the chances of your Adsense account to be banned, but also it feels very irritating to visitors as well.
Also stay away from adding affiliate links to affiliate product to increase your sale. More affiliate links doesn’t mean more earning.
So if you bother your readers with too many ads and affiliate links, then you will lose traffic as well. So it is good to have a fair use of ads and affiliate links on your blog.

You don’t Have a Brand:
A brand is a symbol of trust that makes people buy a product. A brand worth too much either its online on the internet or offline in our daily life. It makes people purchase a brand product, use it and suggest to others as well.
To make your blog a brand, you need a professional logo, attractive tagline, fantastic blog design, social accounts, have a quality content on your site and to communicate with people and let them know about you and your blog.
Once people know about you and you get a high profile on the internet. They will remember your blog name and will even bookmark your blog to have easy access to your site.
This way you will get more traffic to your site. People due to their trust will buy products through your affiliate links on your blog. Hence you can generate more money due becoming a brand on the internet.
You are not Connecting Enough with Your Readers:
To interact and get in touch with people improve your blog audience.
First, you have to let your readers know about you. This can be done by including a face and bio on your blog by having an about page on your blog.
You have to talk regularly with your audience through email and comments. Answering the reader’s comments encourage your audience because by giving response to their comments, this way they know how much you care about them.
You can have a social profile on popular social networks and get in touch with your fans and readers. You can have a casual talk with them through social networks, and hence this builds a strong relationship with your audience.
Thus more audience and readers you have on your blog, more chances will be there to make money with your blog.
To wrap up, I would say that if your blog is not making money, don’t worry you can follow these steps at any time. You have to put your full efforts into your blog to make the above-mentioned necessary enhancement.
If still after making the changes that I recommend above and your blog generate no revenue. Let me know through comments, and I will be there to help you at any time.
