As many of you know, I have been trying out the tips I learn online about how to make money online, on this blog. Here is the review that started it all and here is the fallow up a month later. After a month I found that my blog can make money, but sadly it’s not enough to live off of.
The main reason I am not making more is because I don’t have enough traffic coming to the site. You need a lot of dedicated readers to make PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising pay off, because only about 1 in every 500 people click on an ad. So I would need at least 10,000 visits a day to really make anything.
Now have to make a decision. “Are the ads worth putting on my site for $20 a month?” No, the small amount of money I am making is not worth what the ads take away from the look and content of my site. Maybe if I was pulling in $100 a month I would think differently.
So I am giving the ads another month so see if they have an upward trend. If my ad revenue goes down or stays about this same I am going to remove them. If it goes up at least $5 I will keep them. I would like to add I am only talking about Adsense and Kontera. I will keep text-link-ads, Review Me, Talkshoe, and Affiliate sales. Since they can make me revenue with out detracting from the content like the other two are doing.
