Why The Hell My Blogs Revenue are So Low?

blogging-cat I think I might have caught your attention with that Title which was my plan :-/

Those who do not blog completely because they want to earn some extra money often thinks: “Why the hell my blogs revenue so low?” Many people who think that blogs simply can not generate much money. They are absolutely wrong! Blog can generate you the same amount of money if not more compared to any other website. Now I am talking about PPC (Pay per click) sources of revenue such as Google-Adsense here.

The main thing I have noticed is that people tend to concentrate on wider markets. If you are running a personal diary kind of blog in which you talk about your dreams and other gossips around the world; the chances are that there are thousands of similar blogs around. The more competition you have, the harder it will be for you to make some cash.

Instead try concentrating on smaller markets also known as niche markets. Not only it will be easier for you to develop the traffic, the CPC (Cost per click) should also be higher due to advertisers demand exceeding publishers supply.

Secondly you need to have a unique selling point. You need to give your readers something that nobody else does. This should really help you get returning visitors.

Finally it’s the ads themselves. You should channel your ads. By this you will be able to measure your various ad block’s performance. One of the most important things is to Keep experimenting. Try different ad formats, colors and positioning. Run your setup for a few weeks, note the performance and try something different. Even if you think you have found the optimum ad setup keep on trying to improve it. In most cases you can always tweak something to make your ad performance much better than earlier.

I hope you might have got your answer whenever you think like “Why the hell my blogs revenue so low?

My hot topics blog actually does better then my other two blogs. My wiki blog is starting to do a little better, because I figured out how to make a three column pyzam template. Nobody had one so to be the first was awsome.

Even put me in as a featured member in widgetbox. Some types of gossip does get you more hits, exspecially if you can be the first one to post it on your blog.

Take my post about the mega dome in houston for example, nobody did anything about that, it was the top 10 search in google the day I posted it and it gave me 200 google hits in one day.

Nice post. One thing I noticed is that you have to have a unique content to make your blog stand out. Mentioning about personal diary kind of blog here made me smile. You are right there are so many competitions. You've got to have lots of friend to get lots of traffic too :d

Mac Callister said...

cannedguds said...

this is the same problem that I'm having. my blogs revenue is very low. I saw my friend's blog saying something about something and he made a lot of money with it. I also did the same thing but I didn't get what he have gotten. What's wrong? Maybe I need to learn more....thanks for sharing this!

That's really a very good topic. I've been thinking of reconstructing my blog included my topic. Yes, your right, there are many bloggers out there that has the same topic as mine. I am thinking of having another blog about home improvements since we like doing changes in our house from paint color, gardening and more. Do you think that would be a good idea? Thanks for visiting me once again and have a nice day. I will follow you here too.
