Just curious if any Hubber also write for Yahoo Voices and if so tell me about your YV experience. Do you use YV to help promote your Hubs and vice versa? Any Tips especially for YV?
I've wondered about writing there too since they seem to show up show so well in the search engines. A writing friend told me that she doesn't get as much traffic there as she does here though. You'd think that would be different since Google seems to like them so well.
My experience was very negative. I was subjected to some extremely unethical conduct there. I've ranted about it before. Not in the mood to rant about it again. No need. They have the absolute worst payout rate in the industry. So really no need for me to belabor their other crap conduct.
I do write there occasionally. My views there are a lot lower then here at HubPages. It is nice to get upfront pay with Yahoo, but their PPV is a lot lower so I think it evens out.
Some people do well, especially those who write about fashion, "hot" technology and celebrities.
Ya wanna know about Yahoo Voices?
Here's a quote from one of the commenters: "They are presently faced with a numerous amount of lawsuits from former members."
Here's the review link. No, the review was not written by me.
And don't forget to read the comments after the review. Based on the comments, Yahoo Voices is even far worse now.
I'm actively writing for YCN as well as HubPages. I use each platform for different types of articles. Since YCN likes pieces of 300-450 words, they get my shorter articles. Also, to this point I place my opinion pieces there. My biggest frustration with YCN is the wait of 1-2 weeks between submission and publication as they do their editorial evaluation. On the other hand, as a new writer, YCN's editorial standards have actually helped me. I've had maybe a quarter of my submissions initially rejected before being accepted after I made required revisions. Since I've been able to get a fair amount of up-front payments, my YCN earnings so far outpace those from HP, though HP definitely has a higher page view rate. All-in-all, I'm satisfied with both platforms.
