Can you make Money with Yahoo Voices (formerly Associated Content)?

I asked this question about two years ago. "Can I make money writing online?" The answer is a definite "yes". There are many opportunities out there to make money writing online copy and content. The biggest problem with writing for an online audience is finding a worthwhile place to spend your time. One place that can become a nice part-time income is writing for Yahoo Voices. You can make money writing for Yahoo Voices.

How much does Yahoo Voices Pay?

Yahoo Voices pays performance views-

Yahoo Voices, at minimum, pays what they call "performance views". They pay writers based on the number of times a person reads their content. One of the performance pay level criteria is your "level". There are ten levels you can reach when writing for Yahoo Voices.

"The base rate of Performance Payments for Yahoo Voices is $1.50 for every one thousand page views, and this rate can climb to $2.00 as you publish more content and receive more traffic," according to Yahoo Voices.

Example: A Contributor with 40,000 monthly page views and a Clout Level of 8 will receive a $64.00 in performance payments ($1.60 x 40).

Associated Content pays upfront money

Another way to earn income with Associated Content is claiming assignments that are worth anywhere from $2.50 to $20.00 (or more). Most assigned articles will be around $5 to $10 each. These articles will generally earn performance views too. On any given month, if you are a good writer, you can receive hundreds of dollars a month in assignments.

What can you write about on Yahoo Voices?

Just like Hubpages, you can write about your interests. Yahoo Voices is stricter with their postings, however. Someone will review your content so that spam and nonsense articles do not get past the editors.

One of my recent articles had to do with identity theft. It is a subject that I am intrigued by and have done some extensive research on. I wrote the article as a performance view article, but was offered $5.50 for it upfront as a bonus.Here is the article:

"Your call is being recorded for Quality Assurance"

Making money with Yahoo Voices

How much do I earn writing for Yahoo Voices? On any given month, I have the opportunity to claim at minimum about $600 in articles. Due to other projects I am working on, I don't always claim everything they offer.

You can make money writing online. Hubpages is one great way to earn passive income. Yahoo Voices is another.

Your welcome Dim. One caveat- since Google ranked many sites down (including Hubpages and Associated Content) the paid performance views have dropped for many writers--by about 1/2.

I know this is a year old. Do you still write there? Do more articles become available as I rank up as a writer?

Thanks for sharing your experience. I was curious how much someone can make off of bulk articles monthly on average, this helps clear it up for me!
