How many content farms and which ones do you write for?
As asked, how many content farms do you write for and which ones? I know of xomba, squidoo, hubpages, etc.,
Side question: do you use odesk, elancer, or any sites of this nature?
I write on hub pages and have written on squidoo. I also publish two blogs but not as often as I would like. I am also a business man and taking care of business takes more of my time than I care for. I have also written for enzines. Enzine articles are for promoting the business.
For me personally hub pages pays best and is the most enjoyable.
For the business the blogs work better, there are only a few restraints with them and they make money from things other than my sites.
I do not write for content farm. I am writing and enjoying at hubpages and my blog.

You know, when you have people like demand media paying people to crank out thousands of articles with no blood sweat and tears, and then my traffic from US google goes down the day content farms are smacked by the google algo, it makes one wonder. No one is paid here for most hubs. No one gets...

What is the deal with the HP blog post about optimizing Hubpages and Adsense? The was supposedly written by a Google employee (Tran) for HP writers, but the info that is in it is misleading. Yes, write unique content that is for the reader not the...

What would be the consequences if every 'Content Farm' (Squidoo, Hubpages, Yahoo Voices etc.) removed all Ads from their articles and de-indexed all articles.Sure we'd lose millions of views - but perhaps people wouldn't find any quality and start using Bing, Yahoo etc.Do Content Farms earn Google...
