Worst Revenue Sharing Sites For Writing Online For Money
Writing Sites to Avoid
Revenue sharing sites, such as Hubpages and Suite101, are good places to write and submit articles to earn a shared percentage of the advertisement revenue your content generates online. Revenue accumulates from either ad clicks, page impressions or both.
Writing online for money creates a stream of passive income. There are hundreds of revenue sharing sites for writers online, but there's only a few that are truly worth the time investment if your main goal is to grow a large collection of articles that make money over time. Below are three lousy revenue sharing sites that I have tried myself.
This is a relatively new site that somewhat copied the layout of the original eHow.com website, as well as the now defunct eHow Writers Compensation Program. The only problem is, unlike the old eHow, their writing program is terrible for earnings. Most earnings reports I found online were considerably low for the large amount of lists members had submitted to the site. I have also submitted several lists there myself and never earned 1 cent.
Like eHow.com did back in the day, ListMyFive also keeps their revenue sharing formula a secret. No one really knows how revenue is shared, but it is believed to be based on page impressions. Writing articles for the site is swift and easy. Articles are written in the form of a "Top 5" list.
ListMyFive is not a promising place to start writing online for money, at least for rev share purposes. However, it is a decent place for backlinks. That is the only reason I still occasionally write lists there. In the links section below your list, you can include an anchor text link and the backlink is dofollow as far as I know.
On Triond, articles are submitted for approval, before going live, which is practically guaranteed every time. The process takes a couple days or less. Articles are published on one of the many sites Triond owns, based on the topic of the articles. Earnings are based on page views and Adsense ad clicks.
In the past, I have submitted lengthy, carefully planned SEO articles, and earned a few bucks at from Triond. The earnings are collected directly through your Adsense account. All you have to do is add a custom channel.
Triond is better than ListMyFive for earnings, but if you're looking for a site that will provide increased monthly earnings, as you write more content, it is not a good place to write, at least for me it wasn't worth the time.
The site itself is very easy to use. Writing and submitting an article is a breeze.
Like the site ListMyFive, it seems FireHow.com is another site that tried to duplicate the success of eHow. FireHow is not a new site. It was around even while the old eHow writers program was in full swing, but I found that publishing content on FireHow was a waste of time.
Earnings seem to be based on page views, but since the site doesn't rank well in the search engines, it is difficult to get traffic and make money. I submitted dozens of articles there a long time ago and earned less than $1 since then. A quick look around the Internet will reveal poor earnings reports from other people as well.
Out of the three sites mentioned here, I consider FireHow to be the worst. The site was extremely buggy when I used it before. I experienced problems logging in and publishing articles.
Best Places To Start Writing Articles For Money
Hubpages is probably the best place to write articles online for passive income right now. So far, their new ad program produces earnings for me on a daily basis and the numbers are increasing at a surprising rate as I continue writing more hubs.
Suite101 is also a decent place to write articles for passive income, but personally, I think Hubpages is better. Suite101 made a lot changes but the earnings there are starting to bounce back lately. I don't know any other sites that are worth the time for revenue sharing right now.
