    Hello guys.
    I am the owner of a sports blog which is at 10th position of 1st page of google for the specific keyword "sports articles" and at 2nd on 2nd page for main key word "sports blog". The position of sports blog keyword is daily changing. sometimes it comes to 8th of 1st page and very next day it will not appear in any pages of google. Don't know the problem. But my main problem is, The CTR.

    I have got about 10000 impressions but only 15 clicks and average earnings of 3 $ from past 3 months. I am really upset, what's the problem with my blog!

    It's containing total unique content, pure white hat, good backlinks but no earnings!

    Will you guys suggest me anything? I want to make money at least which pays my hosting fees.

    Regards,
    Adwaitk007

    You're got to put your ads in more clickable places amigo.

    I would get rid of 'Articles' and put some *G* link ads right there. Also right under your first paragraph of your article.

    Do you mean below "latest articles?"
    Well it is there but in middle. I don't want to mess up my website with ads. My blog readers should stay on my website to enjoy the articles.
    well what do you mean by *G* links?

    Dude there are serious problems with ur site. But I will try to help, first the ads are not at all targeted. Ur g ad was "take heart health test", who would want that on a sports site.
    Ur article headings are not clickable so no targeted ads?
    U have disabled right clicks, i think u should change the theme, try to get a article above fold with a ad and the list of pop articles and then a ad and then another article, try diff things and see, I hope I helped u.

    Your site is not optimized for ads... You need serious change in whole theme... With 10k impressions you should be making $50-$100 daily...

    Find some designer or get new CMS and customize that...

    BTW g ads means Google Ads... Ads from Google adsense

    hey thanks to explain meaning of g ads.

    As you can see, I am new to this google ads. Do you know anyone who can do such customizations to current theme with reasonable price and purely white hat? Since I really loved this theme.

    Thanks by the way!

    g ads is google ads and above the fold means the content on ur site which the user can see without even scrolling down.
    U have to place ads in good positions to earn more,plus make the urls on homepage clickable that can increase so many pageviews and highly targetted ads= more $$$
    u can try many free lancing sites and try maybe hire section here, not too much exp in design, though try to see the results in a buffer/dummy site before implementing on ur main site just to be care full :)

    Well I made titles clickable.

    then 2 ads are above fold. Not able to add 3rd because it looks messed up! but 3rd one is just a scroll down.

    Just check once again and let me know!

    If it were wordpress i could have helped you... I am already working with wordpress and would not cost me much time but Joomla... Sorry but never tried... Should try free lancing sites for it...

    I will suggest you to get new CMS (i prefer VIVVO) or try wordpress... It will cost you less in any changes because lots of people are using these...

    I'm building a blog right now, can you suggest a graphic designer that's good with ad placement? I'm totally new to this.

    Thanks.

    use link units below the navigation.that should definitely increase the ctr although obviously,the income per click will be a little low.but with enough jaw-dropping ctr,you can make more than you are making right now.
