When I Googled blogging and ad revenue, this came up that if you make 1000 views per month, from $0.01 – $0.25 per page view, you should be making anywhere from $10 to $25 per month. I have been paying for my Wordads for three years. The lowest views I got last year were 1.800 monthly, and I only made $16.62 in 3 years; something isn’t adding up.
Option one could be that Wordads, the ads I use on WordPress, are too low in value, and the issue I would be facing, in that case, is that to use AdSense on WordPress, you need to upgrade to the business plan, and that would be out of budget for people like me. I have an idea I would like to try. Which is to partner with another blogger, and we would click on each other ads for a month and see if it changes anything.
I never used Blogger since it doesn’t have the like button, and it annoys me that I can’t like a post I enjoyed. The way my brain thinks is that liking that blogger stuff is a sign that I support their content. It might be that I’m doing something wrong, but I don’t find it user-friendly when I try and comment on a post. So, even if I’m told that ads are worth more on Blogger, I’m still sticking with WordPress because I enjoy talking to you way too much to risk it. Having said that, I would like to try that experiment on the ads to see if it works. You can comment down below or email me any time.
