A new rev sharing bookmarking site - Like Xomba & SheToldMe!

  1. profile image0
    ryankettposted 7 years ago

    Hi guys, I have been testing the water with a new revenue sharing site. It is very new and still has PR0, like SheToldMe did before the last update.

    The great thing about www.Snipsly.com (thats the site) is that you can post just your backlinks, like Shetoldme.com and Xomba, but earn adsense cash in the process.

    As I mentioned, I have been testing the water with this with another one of my online accounts... have had traffic and adsense clicks already. I suspect that it will be going in at PR3 or PR4 by the next Google update judging by the noises being created.

    Get your bookmarks in early to see the real benefit, I am suitably impressed enough to bookmark all of my hubs, which I will be working on now. If anybody else fancies giving it a go then either visit www.Snipsly.com.

    I am pretty gutted that this doesnt have a referral scheme, since I am the first person to mention this site on hubpages, I could have done well. But at least you know that I am recommending this site without any sort of financial motive!

    FORGOT TO ADD:- 80% Revenue Share! (How could I forget!)

      Hi, I just went into the site and clicked on one from hubpages just to see how it worked and it doesn't seem to back link properly, maybe you have to join to read it? I think people had better check it unless it is just my pc.

        rebekahELLEposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        you have to click on the link at the end of the description and it takes you to your hub.
        clicking on the title just refreshes. I did notice that someone is not editing their links properly. you have to open the Edit section to properly insert links.  I'm just putting a few in for now and will watch them for a while. It's very easy.

    I found that one the other night through an ad they had on Shetoldme.

    They offer an 80% revenue share.  I also looked high and low for a referral program, but I guess with 80% share there's not much left over.

    I am wondering, though, if they will not be taken over by spammers.  I intend to use them either way, and I actually like the Wordpress interface.

      ryankettposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Oops the 80% bit was crucial. I found them via Shetoldme.com too, I got really excited as we all know that UW has 80 referrals on shetoldme.com! lol

      Still, the interface on this site kicks backside - its awesome. Five times better than Xomba and Shetoldme.com. Lets just hope that it gets a decent page rank in the next update!

      Ryan or anyone, the other day I put my adsense code in and wondered if it worked, and it didn't. I got a prompt reply from snipsly today after I asked them about the ads.

      once I enter the code in the appropriate box, is there anything else I need to do? anything over at the google adsense site?

      thanks.

      1. Jeffrey Neal profile image87

        I would set up a URL channel in adsense to track your impressions and clicks from Snipsly.  I say I would...I did already.. lol

        1. rebekahELLE profile image92
          rebekahELLEposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          is that all I need to do at google?  I just entered my code again into the snipsly site and when I hit save, nothing happens. it loads, but there is no message saying anything was saved. but my code still remains. when I got the reply from snipsly, he said, my code was not entered? so I wrote him again...

          1. Jeffrey Neal profile image87
            Jeffrey Nealposted 7 years ago in reply to this

            I think so.  Give it a day or two and go back to look at your adsense reports to make sure impressions are being recorded.  If not, there may still be a problem.

      ryankettposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      The layout is awful, but I have some of my shetoldme links on the first and second pages of google - and make about $5 per week from my bookmarks. That figure is rising, so I guess that it is 'becoming' worth it.

        do you post new articles or your hubs?
        also on the new site you mention here, are you posting new content. I read the FAQ, and it said shorter articles do better.

          ryankettposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I dont post either, I post a few quick sentences that describe my hub and then link to it. That is the point, you are getting paid to backlink.... which you need to do to earn more money on hubpages anyway.

            a huge tip: when you post those FEW sentences, its those few sentences that trigger the adsense ad, you pretty have much complete control of what ads display

  10. Jeffrey Neal profile image87
    Jeffrey Nealposted 7 years ago

    The way I look at it is this: you need backlinks to gain rankings and traffic.  If you happen to find a site willing to share their adsense revenue with you to post those backlinks there, then it is worth it.  It's like getting paid to eat vs. not...you have to do it anyway so why not get paid?

      It isnt big, yet, but I dont know how you worked out that it doesnt have any back links. A search of the domain brings 377,000 results, of which several on the front page show dofollow links to the website.

      It is in about the same stage as shetoldme.com was 3 months ago, and that is now getting stuff on the top two pages of google....

        Hi, Izzy, yeah not sure who's they are, but the taxi one looks okay  now but there are a few  hubpages one's that haven't linked properly, it just looks like the link is written on a white background and needs doing again, hope this helps.

        1. IzzyM profile image87
          IzzyMposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I only put two spots up, one with three links about the taxis, and <whew> all the links are working. I think what maybe happened was I tried at first to just copy/paste the links, then realised when published that they didn't turn into hyperlinks, so I went back and did them properly. You probably looked when they were getting edited!
          I just can't remember if I remembered to put the URL trackers in! It's too late now, its after 2am. I'll check tomorrow and maybe link the rest up too. Thanks smile

      Don't know about trackbacks, but how do use the copy/paste function? Do you highlight the link,right click and choose 'copy' then put the mouse into the box, right click and choose 'paste'?
      Hmmmm...can't see why else it's not going in. You could always refresh the page and come back to it. What browser do you use?

            Sorry about that above.I was trying to say, when you first post over there, well maybe someone can show me different but the first box doesn't have the opportunity to put in links. But if you save as draft, then reopen it, you get a normal looking template, then you can sort out your links etc

      I was checking it and sometimes I'd see ads there and sometimes I wouldn't.  Then I figured out that was the 80/20 split once I checked the ID when it was showing up.  I went back and discovered that the Adsense Publisher ID is evidently case sensitive where it is not on HubPages.  So, it appears to be fixed now.  Thanks!

    Well I am not sure if I did it right. I posted a few lines and tried adding the url but could only see it working by making text a text link. So 'check it out here' with the word here being clickable to the article. I don't know if that counts as a back link but hey the ads are already relevant so thats something smile

    1. Jeffrey Neal profile image87
      Jeffrey Nealposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Kirsten, instead of using "check it out here" as your anchor text, it would work better if you use relevant keywords.  Either the same keyword phrase you are trying to rank for with your hub, or another related phrase.  So you could say "to learn more about how to carve wood visit me at HubPages." or something like that. smile

        Thanks for replying! big_smile
        I am a slow learner I think lol tho once I got it I definitely got it!
        I thought using the relevant keywords in the regular text was the thing, didn't realize that the link should also have the keywords or title. Fortunately it looks pretty easy to change. The ads did look very relevant right away so I was not worried about that, just wasn't sure if its a 'backlink' in the eyes of the all powerful google.

  32. Jeffrey Neal profile image87
    Jeffrey Nealposted 7 years ago

    A link is a link, but the anchor text helps. 

    Google "click here" and you will see what I mean.  That anchor text is used so much that Adobe Reader ranks #1 for it.

        I asked this question ages ago now, it seems anyway lol
        The answer I got is that a tracker links should work just as well as a straight url plus has the added bonus that you might get people to sign up if they like what they see and want to do the same. I cannot say that this is true but its what I was told so I usually do add the tracker smile

I looked up breyer horses which comes from UK, model horses. do you think categories has anything to do with it? they're not quite as selective with topics. are u participating in the contest?

        ..the title works also - What I suggest and do with great results is writing only keywords as your copy- no fluff and pick the big guns (but keep it relevant)


        for example this thread, if i was to bookmark it

        run through adwords keyword tool (url) compose your blurb using only the top strings

        "Want to make quick cash with google adsense? Make money with adwords, make money with google or even google make money..than read this great thread that answers all your questions about quick cash with google adsense"


        that was an exaggerated example..but it is written with only $5+ keyword strings

            do you mean where you're in the writing mode?

            if so, just enter text into the quickpress and save draft then open edit and it will take you to the regular text box where you can edit.
            there may be an easier way to do it, but that's how I do it.

    Interesting.  I guess I'll take a day this week and work through all of these backlink sites.

    it's so easy to post stuff there. it's just kind of lagging at the moment. i wonder if that's because there's a lot of traffic. anyway, i like it.

      so far I like it. I think it could actually be a bit more user friendly and maybe as it grows it will enhance some of its usability as far as getting around the site.

      I've had to contact them twice about a problem with my adsense, and I received prompt, detailed replies. That impressed me. I only have 5 articles linked. I see they have a winter contest going now for the most articles posted by midnight the 12th and you win $.

    Hey guys,
    I know this is an old thread, but I've just started out backlinking on Snipsly.

    So should I activate the box 'Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page.' at the bottom of the page? And what does it mean? I read the explanation on the wordpress page they provide, but it is still a bit unclear to me.

    I also haven't figured out yet how to put in a link in a proper way. I can't copy and paste it anywhere...

    Ok, I figured out the link thing. Remains the question about the trackbacks and pingbacks. What are they, and do I activate them?
