AdSense is one of the famous ad network programs most of the bloggers use to earn money at the initial stage of blogging.
It was doing well for bloggers when it was new on the web.
But currently, making money from Google AdSense is not that much easy, except you have huge search engine traffic.
Here are the 9 reasons why making money from Google AdSense is difficult.
It took 29 months to earn my first 100 dollars, now in a single month, I managed to earn around 400 dollars from the same.
So, what are the problems with it and what I learned? Keep reading.
All know about it
Almost all internet users know it’s an advertisement from Google.
Most of the PPC (Pay Per Click) programs known by internet users.
So, they don’t click without knowing or having an interest in ads on your site.
Since getting clicks on ads is very less compared to earlier, you need more traffic (visitors).
Still, lots of bloggers earn huge money from Adsense and it’s the main income source for them.
So, how it’s possible?
Because of the traffic.
You must have enough organic (Search engine) traffic.
I would say, minimum of 1000 daily unique visitors by search engines will give reasonable income.
Are you getting this much traffic?
Ads are not relevant
Sometimes ads are not relevant to your blog posts.
When you are talking about Windows 7 wallpapers on an article,
Google will publish ads about ‘How to make a cheap phone call?’.
Who will have an interest in this ad?
You may get even 0.01 US dollars for a click.
It’s very low compared to how hard you tried to get that click.
There are some methods available to stop low paying advertisers from your site.
But it doesn’t work how you expect.
Keyword Selection Mistake
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try to avoid low paying advertisements but still you can’t make good money from Adsense because of ‘Low paying keyword’.
When other bloggers earn 20 dollars from 10 clicks you may earn 1 US dollar in the same 10 clicks.
It’s because of your low paying keyword selection.
Wrong size, placement, color combination, no monitoring
Your AdSense ad placement and color combination should be perfect and match with your blog style and theme.
Don’t miss even a single click by wrong ad placement and color system.
You have to work around with your blog and ads to find out the correct format and placement.
It’s a time-consuming experiment but useful.
To increase your AdSense earnings you must monitor it.
Create channels and monitor which ad format is making real money and on which page.
Then get rid of low earning ad formats.
You don’t have Control on AdSense
You don’t have control to select high paying ads and advertisers.
Changing colors and sizes also limited.
So you can’t hide ads completely with your blog as part of your links.
You have to allow ‘Ads by Google’ in every Adsense advertisement.
Limited Numbers of Ads
It’s not a good idea to place ads all over the places on a page.
But still, if you think you can make more money by more ads and your all posts are very long, sorry it’s not possible.
Google allows adding only 3 ad blocks and 3 ad units on a page.
Updates: Google has announced that Now you can play the Unlimited number of ads.
Don’t depend only on Google as Search Engine
You must optimize your blog to yahoo, bing and ask search engines.
One study said visitors coming from other search engines except for Google, click ads more due to not familiarized with Google AdSense.
I don’t know how much it’s true, but I think it’s quite right
Making money from Google AdSense is a difficult task but it’s Very much possible.
Once you establish your blog well and optimized for search engines, then you should not worry about it.
Earnings will follow you.
