    Can anyone help me?
    I have been trying to submit my blog to Google, but I think it's not worth it. I also tried on Bidvertiser, but ain't getting anything.
    Are there other ways to do it out there?

    PS. I'm a noob here. Thanks anyway.

    Optichalley,

    There are basically two models to making money online. You either have to sell a product or service, or offer something or free in hopes that you will draw enough attention to advertise to visitors. So if you aren't having luck with advertising, perhaps you can think of something you are good at that you could sell online.

    Maybe you can find some ideas here,

    Hope that helps,

    You could always create a product targeting your audience and sell it on your site. You could quite possibly earn far more than you could with any other type of advertising. Other than that, there are about a bazillion different affiliate products you could passively promote. You should also build a list by giving away something free. This could far surpass your blog income in the long run.
