Three Online Sites that I've Earned From, Along with Payment Proofs (Fourth Edition).

Source

The fourth edition.

Just when you thought it was over, I'm back again. I've previously written three editions of the "Three Online Sites I've Earned From, Along with Payment Proofs" series. I've been sitting on the idea of writing other installments for a few months now. However, I recently received payments from three online earning sites - which meant that it was time for me to do another installment of this series. I'm going to change up the format a bit in this edition from the previous articles. As I mentioned in the previous articles, these articles are only for informational purposes only. You most likely won't get rich from participating on these sites, however, they're great to use if you're looking to earn some spare income.

Hubpages.

For anyone who has written for Hubpages and received a payment, me mentioning Hubpages most likely won't come as a surprise. Many are already aware that Hubpages is a legit site. I received my very first payment from Hubpages on August 28, 2012. I even wrote an article about this milestone, which can be read here. For anyone who isn't familiar with Hubpages, Hubpages is an online content writing site. Users of the site write and publish articles that are called "Hubs", and earn from the traffic generated from viewers on their writings.

Pros:

  • Excellent community of writers, who are willing to help out and give advice.
  • You earn from your articles for as long as you keep them published.
  • Fairly easy format for writing.
  • The ability to add Ebay and Amazon products to your hubs based on what you're writing about.
  • Excellent and fairly easy to use writing platform for creating articles.

Cons:

  • Google Adsense account is required in order to earn money.
  • Earnings can be fairly meager if you don't properly promote your hubs.

Redgage.

Redgage is another online social site that rewards users for their participation. Users can post various content ranging from photos, blogs, articles, and videos. Redgage pays users for the traffic that is generated from the links their members post. I've been a member of Redgage for a little over a year and a half now. Here are the pros and cons that I've concluded from using Redgage.

Pros:

  • Posting your links on Redgage not only brings traffic to that particular link, but it increases your Redgage balance as well.
  • Unlimited posting limits. You can pretty much post as much as you want when you want.
  • Because Redgage is a social networking site, it's fairly easy to make new friends and connections.

Cons:

  • The earnings are extremely low. You have to be very active on Redgage, and know the right people in order to earn decently.
  • The site has become very unstable, and often crashes. It's not Google Chrome friendly at all.
  • Redgage is very slow about crediting earnings to users accounts. They can also be be slow when it comes to sending out that first payment request.

Paidviewpoint.

Paidviewpoint is another online survey site. I joined this site earlier in the year after being referred to it by a friend. Most people have bitter feelings towards survey sites, however, this is one of the more unique survey sites I've encountered. First off, members don't have to ever worry about being screened out of a survey. That's pretty rare from the survey sites I've used previously. Here is a few pros and cons of Paidviewpoints.

Pros:

  • The the surveys are short, and you're guaranteed to earn something, even if it's a small amount from them.
  • The surveys actually show members how much time is left during the survey.
  • They are extremely fast with payment. I received my first payment to my Paypal account in a couple of days.

Cons:

  • The higher paying surveys are rare.
  • It takes awhile to earn enough to redeem.
  • Surveys only come a few times a week.

Summary.

That concludes the fourth edition of "Three Online Sites that I've Earned From Along with with Payment Proofs. I personally think that this format of listing the pros and cons is better than how I've done it in previous editions. Again, I want to stress that this series is solely for informational purposes only. If you're a member of any of these sites, feel free to leave your experience with them in the comment section. Thanks for reading, and it's possible that a fifth edition could come to fruition.

really good evaluation of these sites. Always good to know someone who has had the experience as you have. This is not only worth voting up but sharing and sharing on facebook.

Hey prospectboy! Congrats on getting those payments coming in! I love these kinds of success stories: honest, realistic, and inspiring. I know the numbers aren't huge, but it shows that there's legit sites out there...real ways for real people to make money online.

Keep it going!

Voted up and interesting...and shared!

Really interesting. I've not been active at Redgage at all though I've joined. I've joined Toluna as a survey site. Will be looking into Paidviewpoint. Voted up and shared on FB.

Hi prospectboy,

I joined Redgage about five months ago but their chronic crushing problem discouraged me, you have suggested that Redgage is not friendly to Chrome so i think i will re-try with another browser. For now, Hubpages is really an amazing site, beside writing what you like, you can still earn from it. I have already received my first payout and i feel motivated. Thanks for sharing this. Voted up.

Hello Rain Defence. Thanks for stopping by. The earnings on Paidviewpoints are much. However, your time on there isn't wasted since you earn for both the profile surveys, and the regular surveys. The cents definitely add up. Thanks again for stopping by. Much success to you.

Hi dwachira. Thanks a lot for stopping by. Yes Redgage has undergone quite a few changes since I've joined. I would suggest using Firefox when browsing with Redgage. That's the only browser that seems somewhat stable for me on Redgage. I indeed agree with you regarding Hubpages. Definitely a great site with an easy format of writing. Glad to hear you have received your first payout. Hopefully we both will receive that next one soon. Thanks again for stopping by and voting it up. Best wishes to you sir!

Hey there rajan jolly. Thanks a lot for your feedback. It's tough being active on Redgage with all of the technical issues they're having. I've actually written about Toluna in past installments. It's definitely a legit site. If you have any questions on Paidviewpoint, feel free to ask. Thanks again for your feedback and the shares. Much success to you.

Hey there my good friend chrisinhawaii. Thanks for the kind words. I like reading about stories of people finding sites that are legit, which is why I started writing about them myself. Reading stuff like this definitely helps keeps us motivated. Thanks again for stopping by, and voting and sharing. You're the best.

I hate to bust your bubble. I went on the sites you posted in earlier hubs and have been spammed to death. There's a lot of work to do for pennies on the dollar and most you have to pay something in order to get something. Kudos to you for putting up with all the spam and the tons of extra windows that open up, however, it would take 'forever' to get paid $30. Definately not worth my while, but I did try.


prospectboy profile image

prospectboy 4 years ago from Texas Author

@Sarra Garrett, Hello again. You didn't burst my bubble. If you read my previous hubs on this topic, you would know that I stated that these hubs are for informational purposes only. I also encouraged people to do their own research before joining any of these sites. Finally, I said off top that these are not get rich sites. I've personally never had to pay anything to join a site, and I've never been spammed using any of the sites I used. If you were spammed, I'm sorry to hear that. I'm just writing from my own personal experience. I'm in no way endorsing or telling people to join anything.

I haven't been to RedGage in a while as I was finding the earnings to be too little for amount of work. I may go back again and check it out though. Glad you have received a payment. Of the ones you name here, I think HubPages is the best bet. Good information.


Sarra Garrett 4 years ago

I understand you are not endorsing any of these sites and I did read your other articles. In my infinite wisdom I figured if a hub was written about these sites along with your pay information that I would try it. No these are not get rich sites neither are many that are out there. This was an informative hub however, I'm surprised you were spammed to death.


prospectboy profile image

prospectboy 4 years ago from Texas Author

Hey there ChristyWrites. Yea the earnings on Redgage are pretty low. The only way to really have success on Redgage is to join groups that share and tweet each other's links. I like Redgage, but the site has become increasingly unstable in the last few months. Anyway, thanks a lot for your feedback. I appreciate it.


prospectboy profile image

prospectboy 4 years ago from Texas Author

@Sarra Garrett, well you gave them a try and they didn't work out for you. I'm sorry to hear that. No I've yet to have been spammed to death by any site. Maybe things have changed since I first joined. At any rate, thanks for your reply.

Nice post! What about Squidoo? They give a threshold of $5 for payment and their revenue model seems to be similar. Is it worth trying?


prospectboy profile image

prospectboy 4 years ago from Texas Author

Hi yuris, thanks for stopping by. To be honest, I don't know much about Squidoo, so I can't really answer. Maybe someone else who has replied knows more about it. Hopefully someone will reply and answer your question. Thanks again for stopping by. I appreciate it a lot.

Well I'm working on getting my hbpages somewhere at the moment so I know this could be worthwhile as a little extra money. But I havent found Red Gage any good. They have a terrible site and even though I have posted probably close to 100 links I have made less than $2 and very few referrals. But its interesting to see others experiences. Might look at the survey one you mentioned though.


prospectboy profile image

prospectboy 4 years ago from Texas Author

Hi daisydayz. Thanks for taking out the time to check out this hub. I like Redgage a lot, but the site is very unstable. It's been like that for quite sometime now. The way to earn on there is to share your links often on sites like Facebook, and Twitter. Once I started doing that, I found that I had a bit more success. Thanks again for your input.

I use all three sites you mentioned. Hubpages is the best performer for me. I use Red Gage mostly for getting backlinks. I'm not sure if it's even worth getting backlinks there though. The surveys on PaidViewpoint usually only pay 10 cents, but they're fast and easy to answer. It took me about 6 months to cash out on PaidViewpoint. I do like not having to worry about a screen out when you take their surveys.


prospectboy profile image

prospectboy 4 years ago from Texas Author

Hi Matt G. Thanks for your feedback. I used to use Redgage quite often for back links, but I found that it wasn't helping all that much. I really didn't take me that long to get my first payment from PaidViewPoint. Not exactly sure why it didn't, but hey I'm not mad. I do enjoy knowing that there is no way possible to be screened out for any surveys. Like I mentioned in the article, these definitely aren't get rich sites, but they are definitely legit. Thanks again for your feedback.

Hi propect boy:

I love hubpages the best too! I've never used Redgage, though. I might have to check that out. For surveys, the best ones to me are : SurveySpot and Opinion Outpost. They have a $10 cash-out threshold and the surveys usually pay between $1 - $5. One year, I think I made almost $400 just from surveys! It's worth checking out and those are both reputable websites.


prospectboy profile image

prospectboy 3 years ago from Texas Author

@stayingalivemoma, Hey how are you? Thanks for taking out the time to read this. Although Redgage is a legit site, I would advise you to use caution if you join it. The site itself has become unstable over time, which annoys a lot of the members(myself included). They definitely pay though. I've heard of those survey sites you mentioned, but I'm not a member. $400 in one year doing surveys isn't bad. I may have to look into them. Thanks again for stopping by. Best wishes :)
