3 Make Money Websites You Want To Avoid

Updated on April 21, 2013

MyLot

This site is not a good site to make money with. This site is basically where you go to and post discussions and reply to discussions and so forth, and you make money by participating Sounds like a great idea right? It is a great idea, but MyLot is garbage and you will likely not make any money there, and if you do manage to earn some cash, then ask yourself how much work did you have to put in to earn the amount of money that you earned? If you manage to make $10 in a month, then consider yourself lucky.

Join MyLot for any reason other than to make money, because if it is extra money you are after, then you are barking up the wrong tree over at MyLot.

Experts Column

One of the worse sites to make money with is Experts Column. Many people tout that the site is great to earn money with, but what many people are not saying is how much they are earning on Experts Column. They don't even give estimates and it is quite obvious that some of the writers may only be touting Experts Column in order to attract referrals. Experts Column is a site where you have to write a whole lot in order to make some money. When I say some money, I mean around $10 for a month. If you want to earn more than $50 per month with Experts Column, then good luck because it probably will not happen.

The site is a great site to write for and the layout is simple, but when it comes to making money, writers should skip Experts Column.

Iwriter

Iwriter is the third site you should avoid when your goal is to make money. However, the site is far from the worse site out there, and the reason why this site makes the list of sites to avoid making money with is the fact that clients can deny articles for any reason at all, and it affects writers' scores, which means it affects how much income they can make, if the writers keep having articles denied. The good thing about Iwriter is that the site does pay and there is a decent amount of money that can be made there, but clients can deny articles for any reason, so proceed with caution if you want to make money with Iwriter.

      Your remarks on Experts Column mirror my experience. I suspect I will be removing stuff from there and putting it elsewhere.

      The three links only rule makes it nearly impossible to cite references.
