You can still write and get performance pay

As a non U.S.or U.K. citizen, you'll not be eligible to earn upfront payment for your articles on Yahoo Voices(formerly known as Associated Network). However, your articles will be considered only for performance pay. This means you'll be paid a sum depending on the traffic to your articles. This practice of Yahoo is quite similar to many other revenue sharing sites like the Hub pages, Squidoo or Triond.

Yahoo's rate chart

Yahoo is very transparent in its communication. Yahoo has a rate chart which tells you exactly how much you'll make. This will give you a clear idea on much you can earn montly as income from this site. The rate stands at $1.5 to $2 per article for 100 to 100,000+ views.

So as a freelance writer say from India or Philippines, you can publish your content and make money by increasing traffic to your articles.

  • Choose your topics well
  • Specialize - write on an area(s) you're good at and become a specialist.
