Making Money with Triond: My Triond Earnings

Total Triond Earnings: $70.11

Get Paid to Write with Triond

Triond allows you to get paid to write articles without having some of the requirements of other sites (word count, etc..). However, Triond does require that all content be original and that you include tags (important for SEO!) and an image (from their collection of images) within your article. I like to use Triond as a place to backlink to other articles and also to write articles on brief topics that do not have enough words to meet the word count requirement of sites like InfoBarrel.

How to Make Money with Triond

At Triond, you can earn money in three ways. The first is based upon page views. Triond is not forthcoming with an algorithm for how much you make per page view and it varies based upon the site's income and the revenue brought in by your articles. (In other words, articles on different topics will earn different amounts per page view.) When you first join Triond, this is the only way to make money.

Once you reach the minimum payout (50 cents via Paypal), you can increase how much money you make with Triond by integrating your Google Adsense ID. Your Adsense ID will be portrayed on Adsense ads on your articles 50% of the time. Triond's Adsense ID will be placed in the ads the other 50% of the time.

Additionally, once you have reached payout, you can also refer members to Triond. You will be paid 10% of the revenue from your referrals' articles.

Background info on my history writing for Triond

I wrote my first article for Triond on June 29, 2011 and then did not write another article until the end of July, 2011. Thereafter, I began to write articles on Triond semi-regularly to create backlinks to articles I write and pages I create for other sites such as InfoBarrel and Squidoo.

I don't use Triond as my main source of online income but to help increase how much I make on other sites and for some extra "bonus" income. My earnings on Triond were slow to start, but eventually increased so that I regularly earned a payout each month.

Starting at the beginning of 2013, my referrals must have started to get great success on Triond as my referral earnings began to greatly outweigh what my articles themselves were making. For January and February, 2013 I made nearly $5 from referrals alone and in March, 2013 made about $10 from referrals.

I only earned my first payout from in November, 2011 and therefore, began using Google Adsense and referring new writers in mid-November, 2011.

2013 Earnings: $33.20

In March of 2013, my Triond earnings took a huge jump and most of those earnings were from referrals. However, something happened where it tapered off in April and then by May, all of the referral earnings were gone and where I previously was guaranteed at a minimum the $0.50 to get payout and now am getting pennies each month and no Adsense earnings. I have pretty much stopped writing for Triond so that may be part of why my earnings have tapered off. I will try to write more in 2014 to see if that helps the earnings get back up or else I will give up on the site and focus on more profitable paid to write sites.

2012 Earnings: $34.75

I became more active on Triond in 2012, writing lots of articles on Triond and promoting them and as you can see, my earnings took a pretty big jump from in 2011.

2011 Earnings: $2.16

Because I didn't keep track of my monthly earnings prior to my first payment, I cannot go back and verify what I made each individual month for my first few months on Triond, so I clumped together my earnings for my first payment in the table below.

My first payment from Triond on November 10, 2011 for earnings from June 27, 2011 (when I joined Triond) through October 31, 2011 was $0.60.

Because I reached my first payout in November, I was not eligible for Google Adsense earnings until after my first payout in November; therefore, you will see that section of the chart indicates that Adsense earnings were "not applicable."

@passionate77 and @younghopes yeah Triond's earnings are pretty bad, I much prefer Bubblews now for shorter posts/articles. Triond used to be an easy way to backlink, but after the latest Panda where backlinking is a no-no, Triond is pretty useless.

Not really sure, perhaps they believe articles will do better in Google where each article is in its own domain all on the same topic.

I had always wondered about Triond. It doesn't seem like it would be worth my time at all. Thanks for posting your earnings information! I found it to be helpful.
