6 Most Important Reasons Your Blog Isn’t Earning Money

6 Reasons Your Blog Isn’t Earning MoneyThe main reason your blog isn’t making money is low traffic. But, blog traffic isn’t everything, my friends.

You can make big bucks even if you only have a few hundred readers a day, depending on where your ads are and what they look like. And, how bold you are as a blogger!

“If you decide to generate income from your blog, then don’t be shy about it,” says Steve Pavlina, self-help guru and blogger. “If you’re going to put up ads, then really put up ads. Don’t just stick a puny little ad square in a remote corner somewhere.”



Despite being a personal development guru who motivates millions of people every year, Pavlina isn’t all optimism and positivity! He says 99% of people who try to generate serious income from their blogs will fail.

This may be because there are no barriers to blogging – anyone can start a blog within a few minutes. The lowest, least respectable bloggers steal other bloggers’ content. Actually earning money from your blog requires time, perseverance, consistency, and a healthy dose of “web savvy.”

If your blog isn’t making a cent, take 75 Ways to Make Money Blogging for a spin.

One of the most important blogging tips I know is to stay in touch with Google’s blog, videos, and webmaster program. When I first started making money, I read tons of tips from other bloggers…and ignored Google. But, Google shares a goldmine of good, solid information! Stay connected with Google, my friends.
