Many of you have failed monetizing your blog just as you have not really understood how and why and what to do to make it profitable. That is such a headache issue for any bloggers especially newbies. Let’s figure out my consolidated reasons on how you can not monetize your blog yet.

3. Wrong niche:
Many blogs try to dig in high paying niches while they did not even know what it is and how to support their readers when needed. If you try to make more by farming keywords in your wrong niche or autoblogging, you might earn some but it is not long term strategy as you will loose all sooner or later. If you are using Google Adsense by that way, your account will even be disabled and your earning will be lost too.
4. Wrong targeted audiences:
Targeted audiences are really important as it can help you earn more with high conversion rate. You should think carefully your SEO skills and where to drive traffic to your blog. You can not drive those who are interested in technology to a gardening sites. That is wrong way. No advertisers are willing to pay you with non-targeted clients.
5. Not creative/innovative:
When you have all things needed, another issue can be considered. It is creativeness or innovative. You should think about placement of your ads, what size and format the ads should be to maximize your earnings. Google has consolidated the best performing adsense ad unit format and you should give it a try.
Sometimes, you can rotate your ad to refresh your readers’ eyes especially for those who have the most returning clients.
That is common reasons that many bloggers especially newbies have experienced with in order to make their blog profitable. It is not that easy as you have heard from unofficial sources. Let’s figure out what reasons of yours to fix it and you will make more money sooner or later.
