If you don’t understand all the principles of how to make money from blogging, then you may end up suffering for nothing.
Some of the reasons why you are not making money from blogging are as follows:
1. Poor Traffic: To make money from your blog, you must make sure you have enough traffic.
There are many ways to build your site traffic but the most reliable one is through Google Search Results.
But it you have good social media platforms and good numbers of followers, then you can still use them to drive traffic to your site. You can also use platforms like forums to share the most interesting posts on your blogging while requesting the readers to click and read the full article on your site.
Note: Sharing of your post on Social media, forums, and other social platforms are not recommended for those monetizing their blog with Google Adsense to avoid being banned.
2. Low-Quality Contents: This may include Copied contents, nonconventional and abusive, false, hypocritical, non-organized and fake contents. So you must focus much on building quality articles that will interest your readers and visitors. Don’t try to deceive people just to visit your site with deceptive Captions on irrelevant posts. Let your Post Title speak what will be seen inside the article.
3: Low Blog Trust: Low quality contents always result in low trust and any blog with low trust will hardly make it because users will never want to have a deal with such blog to avoid being scammed.
Do not publish articles on things you don’t really trust nor have idea of.
Can you really make money from Blogging?
Well, then the answer to this question is not “YES” because this question deserves individual answers.
As a blogger, there is no limitation to making money. So if you are not making money from blogging yet, it doesn’t mean blogging is not a profitable business.
As of 2019, the richest blogger in the world (Tim Sykes ) the CEO of TimothySkyes.com made $1,000,000+ per month
He made most of his money by selling DVD courses that teach people how to sell penny stocks and trade on his blog. While the Richest blogger in Nigeria (Linda Ikeji) Net Worth was ₦3.2 billion which she made through her website lindaikejisblog.com
With these figures, I guess you don’t need a prophet to tell you that you can make so much money from blogging.

Monetizing your blog with ads is the simplest way of making money from your blog.
This way of making money from your blog is good for new and upcoming bloggers who don’t have much traffic yet and those who are not yet popular on the Net.
Best Ads Network to Monetize your Blog
Google AdSense is the best Advertisement platform that pays you for helping them advertise their ads on your blog. They pay you per click that your visitor clicks on their ads. You can easily apply for Google Adsense here
Note: Many Ads networks may not be very reliable because a little violation of policy may end you up in being banned.
2. Use Affiliate marketing on Your blog:
Affiliate marketing is a means of earning a certain amount of commission for referring users through an assigned link to buy particular goods or services from a company.
What you should know is that affiliate marketing is harder to use than Google Adsense. In Affiliate marketing, you need a high volume of engaging visitors who must be ready to buy services or goods online.
Some of the Best Affiliate marketing programs you should use are:
- Jumia Affiliate
- Konga Affiliate
- Amazon Affiliate
- AliExpress Affiliate
- Shopify Affiliate
3. Accept Advertisement from people on your Blog:
This is not that simple to make money with. But if your site grows popular, then a lot of people will want to advertise with you. You can create a space on your blog and publish their adverts while charging them a certain amount of money for the service.
NOTE: your blog must be popular before you can achieve very well in this.
4. Monetize your blog with sponsored content/Guest posts:
This is almost like accepting adverts from people. Here, people will develop content or article and request you to post on your site while giving a recommendation to their own site or maybe put a link that your users can click to get to their own site too. You can charge them a certain amount of money to deliver this service. But your blog must be popular before you can achieve this.
5. Sell Anything that is related to your niche on your blog:
You can sell anything on your blog ranging from services, hard copies, softcopies, eBooks, clothing materials, kitchen utensils, and so on.
