    Why do you want your site to appeal to a global audience? Trying to be all things to all men, to use the cliché, can be damaging to your blog promotion and marketing. A more successful approach is to focus on a specific target audience and then provide the best possible service to that audience.

    Have you thought about what kind of people who would be interested in the topic of "History and Ancient Indian Science"? What country/countries are they based in, what is their age group, what other sites do they visit, what newspapers and media do they read, etc? Most importantly what can you offer them that they value but are not getting from the blogs / websites they currently visit?

    To be very frank Fergal, I just don't know how many people would be interested in this kind a blog...This blog includes both history and scientific information along with some instances of ancient technology..So people interested in any of above should read ...Though I have written the topic as Indian, Still I am going to include many references from world over...I usually writes explaining scientific reasons behind technology exists in legends, epics or used in ancient times but got extinct today......I think this is most unique approach with only few websites catering to this....So people must be interested..Ok i will try to figure out the stats of those sites and analyze them to identify my target audience...

    Any way by which I can do that..??

    Scifi you could use Google's Keyword Tool to find out how many searches are being done on Google for search terms related to your blog. In a similar vain you could use Twitter Search to see how many people are using Twitter to discuss similar topics.

    Scifi, I don't believe that you are doing anything wrong, it takes time to build up your blog's traffic and the truth is you are unlikely to generate much revenue from 25 visitors per day. Some people suggest 1,000 uniques per day as a good starting point for revenue. If I was you I would focus on adding good quality content to the blog and on increasing your traffic for the time being, you can concentrate on increasing your revenue once you have reached a certain level of traffic (perhaps 1,000 uniques per day, or whatever level works for you).
