:D
I have been trying with a blog for over 2 years and never get more than 300usd per year.

So i would like to know if is possible to live with one or with some blogs?

I had seen so many courses this, that,,,but i really don't believe.....if it's so good and easy why they are selling it?

So...could anyone help me to understand a little be more about what i have to do,,or some techniques to improve my blog.

I have facebook, with 6k fans,,twitter,,google plus,,,instagram....

But if my niche is the problem,,i can create a new one...

My blog is not in english...but i think the way to get visitors it not realted with the language...

Now i am in US, not my native country and would like to create a blog in englis...buying some texts,,,etc....

Thanks !
 
You might want to do a little more research to know why your blog of 2 years is earning $25 a month or less.
First, are people interested in your topic/niche (how many search does it has a month?)
Secondly, do you get visitors to the site?
And lastly, you might want to change your monetization. Try different network and see what work best.

So I do not forget, do not read any more courses. Read BHW!
 
depends on your niche, if you did a blog about bottle top collecting then it would be hard to earn. Just keep at it, use tools to find keywords people are searching for and write articles and post on a regular basis. Promote on social media etc. Make sure your posts are original. Basically just keep going, effort = success - good luck

The blog has the average of 200 visitors day.
The niche is high competition. It's about beauty, style and cosmetics.
I had tryed different monetization but never worked.
I know i am not going to read those courses. Are they fake like digital marketer ?

 
How often are you writing content?

Can we see an example of one of your blog posts?

What is your current monetization strategy?

Everyday a post a text. 300-400 words 2 images. Should a bold some keywords?
i am not allowed to post a ur l or image.
 
You have to learn how to properly drive traffic,on one of my legit sites where i wrote 21 recipes, i just keep promoting them on pinterest, if i dont do anything for 3-4 weeks i get 3-8€ income a day from that blog, if i promote it actively up to 45€.

create more blogs like that. think of it like this: when 1 blog makes you 25$, 10 blogs would make 250$ a month :)

But if pay 5usd text, you should get around 10usd at least per day right? And to get 10usd day is not so easy,,,you have to spend money on facebook...so...the math is bad on my side....
 
What language is your blog in
you would probably be better off stayig with this blog and making it work.

The copetition for english keywords is a lot more tougher than any other language.

Use this tool to get monthly searches and CPC cost https://adwords.google.com/KeywordPlanner

if your traffic is from your own social media, then its better to go after high paying keywords
Build your article around the keywords, if your using adsense.

If your selling a product, write reviews of the product
 
You said your site is high competition about beauty, style, and cosmetics with 200 hits a day. I would sign up as an affiliate on Amazon and AliExpress than write some product reviews. Go back through old post and sprinkle in links. You should be able to bump that $$ number up to at least a few hundred a month.
 
Now only with adsense.

That might be the problem.

If I were you, I'd build a list and use the list to upsell products related to your niche.

Why a list?

It turns TEMPORARY TRAFFIC (most of your traffic will never be back) into a SEMI-PERMANENT pool of return visitors and potential buyers.

Upsell affiliate products to your list or create customized products like books specifically built around your content or site experience.
 
Your biggest problem is you are in a HIGH-COMPETITION niche. The big boys are going to blow you away unless you have the money to play in their league.

Secondly, weak 300 word posts will not get you noticed or help with your ranking in the least. Not even if done on a daily basis.

Third, 200 visitors a day, or 200 hits? Big difference between the two. Either way, though, you need to bring more traffic. TARGETED traffic, btw. Don't buy cheap mass traffic if you're looking to make sales.

If you're currently using Adsense, 200 visitors a day won't make you enough money to make it worth your time.

Obviously, the courses you were reading weren't giving you the proper information.

I think @blackbeans has the right idea of telling you to build your LIST, instead.
 
Start using social media, you need to drive more relevant traffic.
Also, there are a lot of tips from blogging experts how to increase your revenue.
I do not believe that for 2 years, you could not improve your income. You need to make more efforts!
