3) The content on your website should be attractive preferably displaying content that will draw visitors’ curiosity to want to know more about what is featured. Presenting your visitors with links and images, right from the onset, may not be a very good idea.
4) Obscene content as well as copied content or content that has been duplicated form elsewhere may not be of much interest to your visitors. Create original content that is well researched, up-to-date and interesting. This could be of general interest or solely related to your niche.

Some Known Challenges of Making Money from Google AdSense
Knowing how many ads to place on your website is a common challenge just as having the appropriate number of links. Experience, comparison with other affiliates and design and presentation of your website may determine what quantity of links and banners will suffice at any particular moment.
Reliance on one type of marketing medium such as images or text may not be so attractive to visitors or potential customers whom you wish to attract. A balance needs to be established including banners and advertisements that combine images, text as well as video.
Lack of a blend between what is presented and the background of your web page may affect the attractiveness of your ads, thereby not attracting the desired clicks by visitors to your website or leading to visitors just not wanting anything to do with what you are offering. Don’t take anything for granted including the font size and other such features that play a role in the attractiveness of your content to potential customers.
The review and content that you are writing about needs to be of interest and should make visitors spend some time on your blog or website or leave them wanting to come back for more. This is where your enthusiasm in the topic you are writing about plays a significant role.
