Those who blog partly because they want to earn some extra money often ask the

question:”Why is my revenue so low?” There are people who think that blogs simply

can not generate much money. They are wrong! Blog can generate you the same amount

of money if not more compared to any other website. Now im talking about PPC

(Pay per click) sorces of revenue such as google adsense here.


The main problem I have noticed is that people tend to concentrate on wider markets.

If you are running a personal diary kind of blog, 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. This way you will be able to

measure your ad block’s performance. One of the most important things is to experiment.

Try different ad formats, colours 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 better.
