RedGage for Netizens

  • "Netizens" are constantly looking to make money online, and a simple yet foolproof way to drive traffic to their fledgling personal website(s). I personally have tried using Blogger, BlogCatalog, ShetoldSo, Digg, and Twitter to promote my websites but, the traffic was not anything to brag about. Needless to say, my Google Adsense earnings were the other indicator of how badly, I was in need of increasing my minuscule website traffic. I was earning pennies on the dollar, and it would take me months of earning revenue just to gain enough money, which would add up to the lowest amount needed that entitled me to a pay out. I was beginning to lose hope, and was becoming increasingly frustrated. I was in need of some serious help and fast! It was pure dumb luck that brought me to

Increasing Traffic

  • If you are looking to make money writing for profit sharing ad revenue sites such as, it is a necessity to be involved with the Google advertising profit sharing program known as Adsense. It is my advice that you also sign up for any other advertising affiliated program that are offered to you and legal to use in your state- like the ones offered by Kontera, Amazon, or eBay.
  • Once I got involved with, my Internet writing experience took a drastic turn for the better. Even though I was already using other social media outlets like Twitter, Digg, Facebook, SheToldMe to drive traffic to my Blogger page, HubPage profile, Snipsly, etc., it was not until I signed up with that I actually noticed an increase in traffic to my online article. It has really helped me to increase my Internet traffic, thus increasing my self confidence in my writing abilities.

From One Hub Writer to Another

I wish I was one of those HubPage hubbers that has instant success. But I am not. I have had to fight, scratch, and claw for every penny I have earned on here. It has not come easy for me, not at all. When I started writing online, I had no clue how to build my own website, sign up for Adsense, and I did not even know what backlinks were, or how to use them. With the aid of some HubPages' "how-to" articles, I was able to slowly teach myself. I virtually used many of the articles as my personal tutelage to getting me started in this new endeavor.

Let me just write that I was in desperate need of a hobby, and some extra income to boot is never a bad thing either. The aspect of freelance writing not only sounded good to me, it eventually became quite evident to my family (and to me) that it also provided me with an inventive and creative outlet to help fulfilled a void, I was apparently missing in my life. Not to mention, since writing for my own website and, I have noticed an increase in my vocabulary, as well as a valuable increase, in my intellectual knowledge. Which I have gained by both writing on here but, also by reading the many great articles published here on I hope writing will become as big of a blessing for you, as it has with me.

Search Engine Friendly Synchronization Tool

I would not use alone to make money. You really need to pair it up with a Snipsly, Gather, or website to do any good. If you do not, you will have a long time to wait before you will be able to make any profit. The site is not set-up in a way where community members (like myself) will make huge profits by strictly using RedGage traffic. However, it is an excellent tool to promote and market your HubPage articles, photos, website links, personal blogs, and other Internet based activities by utilizing the backlinks tool! Which is essentially a synchronization tool, geared towards helping people like you and me, become more "searchable" and search engine friendly.

What I Know About

  • is a free online resource. Since I signed up for, there has been a substantial increased of website traffic to my online articles. I went from having 30 people visiting my blog on average a day to two hundred plus people per day average, virtually overnight.
  • I went from making two cents a day, to making anywhere from two to eight dollars a day. For me that was terrific! When I first signed up for in 2010, I was only receiving a Google payment every third or fourth month. It was taking me three, four and sometimes five months at a time, to accumulate the hundred dollars needed to get paid by them. Now on average I receive a check every two months. Every two months I will add, during a period I had not written anything new, for a period of two years now.
  •, is the reason I have started writing again. I have maybe made forty dollars total on's site. However, because of the website I have made hundreds. I get more search engine traffic sent to my articles, when I list them on my RegGage profile. So it's not that I make money on their site itself- because I do not. They actually went through a period where they were not even making payments to profile owners. But the site was never designed to be a writers shared revenue site, like It was intended to be a SEO portal to drive traffic to a blog article, which otherwise would never get the opportunity to be read. That reason alone makes a valuable asset to have.
  • One highlight of's is that it offers a nightly contest. Which I won the first night I joined. By entering the contest, I won a $25.00 Visa debit card. But as for RedGage earnings for my articles, it has only been $12.79. However, my real earnings have come from all the extra traffic that I have now from promoting on It has been a real game changer for me and a great experience.
  • is extremely easy to use and very user friendly. The community members are really neat folk, and my experience has been that most of them are real helpful and a great resourceful tool to tap into. If you are questioning whether or not is worth your time and energy, my advice to you is a resounding, YES!
  • I became an active member of the community website in September 2010. I learned about through an online, ehow article. The author of the story was sharing some personal "helpful hint," on how to drive Internet traffic to a blogger's personal online website.

    Redgage is just perfect! I am loving it and I am a member for just 4 days. I really like taking pictures and it seems that many people like them too! I already have a fanbase of 3000+ people so every time I upload a picture I get 1.50$ each. And it's great because I have loads from my vacations to other places. I wonder how to get bonuses though...

    Also the community is pretty awsome and friendly. Hasn't been much time and I already got 5 friends and many subscribers. Easy going website, with 98%+ quality content.

    (Am experimenting with written 'humor'), I would give my next 5 Posts for the power of italics! Am I missing something or is there someplce I can get italics into Comments? Spellcheck wouldn't hurt either.

    Actually was informative Post, will try this Redgage.

    Oh I'm so glad you commented back to me. I've been worried about missing your first comment. But yes, please do look for me on RedGage, and if you ever need anything I'm here for you. It sometimes does take a while for me to get back to people, (I'm a surgical scrub tech for three oral surgeons which keeps me pretty swamped sometimes), but I'm here for you. I love RedGage. I really cannot say enough about the website. Now you won't make money like you can on other websites, but, the traffic generated from RedGage beats those other sites bar none. So it all evens out in the wash. Good luck and cheers to making money online!

    Thank you so much, that helps a lot! I'll look for you on RedGage!

    Hi Cari Jean! Sorry it has taken me soooooooooooo long to reply. But what I have learned that to get credit (make money) you have to load your backlinks as blogs. Links are just letting other people know that the listing link is interesting. Applying it as a link to a blog, let's people know it is an article, written by you that you would like them to read. Hope this helps! Be sure to friend me, my account name is IntimatEvolving

    I just joined RedGage and am wondering if it is better to upload my HubPages articles as a blog or as a link? What's the difference between the two?

  • IntimatEvolution profile image

    Julie Grimes 7 years ago from Columbia, MO USA

    Yeah Darski, you need to link up your different hub articles. Think of it as a way of making a public announcement. Only this way it's FREE! Cheers.

    Peter, do you have most of your hubs backlinked over there? If not, I highly recommend doing so for the same reason I cited to Darski. Thanks Peter for stopping by and reading this hub.

    Thanks, interesting experience. I have been on Redgage a while but perhaps don't visit as often as I should. $8 a day sounds a good jump in earnings.

    Okay so let me get this clear, I don't just put my hubpages profile page right, I need to do each hub I wrote on redgage. I can do this...I am not very techy and I have yet to cash out my google ad even once, LOL so maybe this will help me. rate this up, contact me if am missing anything. Love & peace darski

    Hey Darlene, you upload a direct link to a hub you want to promote. Therefore when you upload an article, select blog, post the hubpages backlink as the link, title the article the same as the HubPage article, write a 150 letter brief description of your hub, and if you have a picture upload the pic and then you are done. No, is not the best site for writing on. It is more for promoting your hubs. So continue to write your hubs here, and then promote them on Hope this helps. Thanks for your wonderful comments.

    Hello friend, Okay I checked out this site, and maybe I am slow but I am not sure what you are suppose to do. Do you write for that site, since I barely have enough time to write my hubs? Or, you just sign up, what exactly is it, I read it but still don't get what happens with this. Thanks for sharing, I look forward from hearing from you. Love & peace darski
