Why you can't monetize your blog

make money with blog
If you want to make money from blogging, write 100 posts first. But some people write 100 posts and still don't make any money.

1. Not doing enough SEO

First of all, SEO is a measure to improve the results of your website by increasing the number of people who visit your site from search engines.

The main benefit of SEO is that your website will appear higher in the search results of Google engines and other search engines. 

However, if you don't do SEO, you will not appear on the first page but most likely on the fourth page or later.

If this happens, fewer people will visit your blog.

(More to come)

2. Choosing a blog theme that doesn't make money

When someone says that they can't make money as a blog affiliate, it means something different depending on how much money they want to make. 

In my opinion, blog affiliates have the opportunity to monetize their blogs in any theme. 

However, there are some themes where you can make a lot of money and others where you cannot.

Therefore, if you choose a problematic theme to make money from at the initial blog design stage, you may not reach your goal, no matter how many posts you write.

Also, the more money you make, the more competitors you will have. 

Therefore, it will be tough to compete with only about 100 of them.

For more information, please refer to the following.

Suppose you are trying to monetize your blog by putting up so-called performance-based advertisements. 

In that case, if you make a mistake in selecting an advertising program, you will not make any money no matter how many posts you write. 

Of course, you should choose an advertising program relevant to your blog, but if the product or service is not attractive, it will not sell no matter how good the post is.

So be careful when choosing an advertising program. 

At the very least, if the product or service's sales website (LP) doesn't make you want to buy it or use it, it's not good

It is also difficult to sell products whose price is disproportionate to the quality of the product, so this is a point to keep in mind.

When choosing an advertising program, people tend to choose based on the unit price of the reward alone, but I recommend such people check again about the product's attractiveness.

4. Mistakes in approaching search engines

This is a rare case, but if your blog is set to prevent search engines from indexing in the first place, you will get zero inflow from search engines. 

100 posts have been written, but there is almost no inflow from search engines. 

You should recheck the setting if you have written 100 posts and get very little traffic from search engines.

5. Search Engine Penalties

If for some reason, your blog posts are deemed to be 「copy posts」 that infringe on copyrights, your blog may be skipped in the search results. 

In other words, it is a case of being penalized by search engines.

You can check if you are being penalized by the search engines by going to 「Manual Measures」 in the search console.

6. Just writing posts blindly

If you're not getting search penalties and your choice of blog genre isn't bad, but you're not making any money, there may be a problem with how you write your posts. 

Since many blog affiliates are entering the market these days, getting hits with just a few posts tends to be complicated.

Therefore, the first thing you need to do is provide helpful content that meets the user's search intent.

It is essential to select keywords and structure the post's content. 

I'm not very good at keyword selection, but you can find a lot of information on the Internet. 

There are tools available, but you can research keywords without spending a lot of money if you take your time.

Once you have found the keywords that you think will make you money, it is essential to write a well-written post about them. This will naturally increase the number of words.

The volume of posts in the top search results is usually between 2,100 and 2,400 words (according to Hubspot data). 

If you write to include all the necessary content in the post, words will gradually increase.
