There are many possible reasons to why your website might not be getting any of the necessary traffic you need to generate income, either as an affiliate marketer, online marketer, or a simple adsense earner.
Fact is, if your website is not ranked well, then you should realize almost most regular online searchers, will never look past the second or third page of Google. Hence, it is much more similar to a brick and mortar business than you may have initially realized.
In-fact they are very comparable!
Take a brick and mortar shop who is in the center of a highly-densed residential area, versus a shop located in the middle of nowhere, or has competition right across the street. Therefore, in order to build yourself a successful operating online business, your foundation, which is your website that you build, create, and maintain on a day-to-day basis must be unique, offer products, services, or information, that most other websites do not, and/or is gaining traffic over-time due to the quality of posted information, filled with long-tailed keywords, with very low competition.
Hence, your website, delivering products, services, or information, must be properly created in terms of SEO, to make the front page of google, for the keywords your attempting to rank. Alternatively, you may also use pay per click methods, if that is a more convenient method for you, allowing to have sponsored advertisements, located within the google search engine itself, and other relevant websites, making your website a lot more traceable, and thus, gaining traffic!
Furthermore, these methods of traffic are not merely limited to SEO and pay per click. For example, by utilizing tactics such as, daily blogging, social media mediums, and unique, and valued content, can surely do wonders for your website!
