There is no doubt that people are mostly starting blogging in a bid to make money. Some bloggers make money while some still struggling. Even after having knowledge of how and when your blog can generate money, they fail to get their share of the online revenue.
Why is that so? Why a blog doesn’t make money even after getting high traffic? There’s got to be a problem (or maybe problems) somewhere. There might be loopholes in your blog.
So here are five quick points that will help you find out the loopholes that why your blog is not making money to flow in.
5 Reasons your blog is not making Money-
1. Your blog is not fully optimized
Do you think that you have a fully optimized blog? If you are not able to generate money, then maybe it’s not optimized. Brush up your SEO skills, do some keyword research, write articles according to your blog’s keywords. SEO optimized blog ensures you quality traffic from search engines and also tells your readers you are serious about blogging.
Don’t be lazy in optimizing your blog and your content and make Loading Time very Fast. Use proper title tags, proper keywords, do some basic SEO, and that would be enough to optimize your content.
2. Your blog is ads factory
Got approval from Adsense? Congratulations. But don’t rush into putting ads at each and every possible place. You won’t earn a single penny, and worse, you might get banned from Adsense.
Don’t use too many ads program; don’t think that more ads mean more money. Nope, more ads mean no money. Your readers should be able to see your content clearly. The sidebars should be clean; all the widgets should be at their place. Once you have a great readership, you wouldn’t need to make an effort; advertisers will automatically contact you and thus some big bucks will be generated.
3. You are using too many affiliate links
This is another grave mistake bloggers commit. They sign up for different affiliate products and start adding links in their blog, inside the posts thinking that it will increase sales. But the truth is bitter.
This will only make you uneasy. Affiliate marketing is one thing that should be done only after some point in your blogging journey and that too systematically. If you are doing it with proper management, then just one link will bring more sales as compared to more links and no sale. That’s a nice bargain.

4. Your content is “me too” content
What? Didn’t get it? It means that you are giving your readers the things that they already have or they already know about it. Spinning or copying articles from a big blog, thinking it would help and earn money; these tactics won’t do any good.
If you are just writing stuff that’s already present on other blogs, then why will people come to your blog?? Give me a reason for people to visit your blog. People visit blogs to read the contents of it, and if they are happy with the content, they will visit back; thus increasing chances of earning more money.
5. You don’t have a brand
Why many blogs are earning thousands each month and not you?? It’s because they have established their brand and you still don’t know about it. People remember that particular blog by seeing their logo or even a similar image.
Blog branding and thus personal branding is a point that many bloggers take seriously when it comes to establishing your online persona and an authority blog. If any blog launches a product, people buy that product only when they trust that brand (that blog). Brand your blog according to what you are; what your blog is all about. Use proper logo in your blog and in every social media account. Use a proper tagline and some great design elements and brand yourself.
