What do you think about helium?
Do you anyone here have any good or winning experience with Helium? Please share your success.
I enjoy writing for Helium some, but my monthly revenue earnings so far are much higher on Hubpages. The titles they suggest are good and the upfront payments on some articles are nice. I also appreciate that they have the ratings system and a mentorship program, although I have not requested a mentor since I spend most of my time on other sites.
It's good to diversify your online writing activities. Helium is worth a try to see how you like it, just don't do all of your writing in one place.
I joined Helium about 7 years ago and have 112 articles there ... and I'm sorely disappointed for several reasons:
* The revenue is minimal;
* I must constantly return and rate other people's articles in order to have the "right" to make revenue on the site (rating star system);
* I cannot remove an article once posted;
* If I need to change an article, it must go through a peer approval process which means my changes can be refused;
and the most troublesome thing about Helium:
* The Terms of Service includes a "permanent irrevocable perpetual right and licence" ... this that you give Helium permission to use and profit from articles you have posted on their website - forever ... even after you close your account with them.

I have tried a few but they are either too difficult to understand how to get started, or just plain not as good as Hubpages.

Helium is now Helium Network, with 360 micro-sites to distribute your content. Content managers are there to ensure quality of the content and they claim that this arrangement is to have SEO in mind. To me, just kinda reminds me of what Triond is doing. Will it work and does it encourage you to go...

Hello to all fellow writers, the following site Pitlane Magazine (pitlanemagazine.com) has stolen several articles of mine. They've been doing this for a while, considering that one article dates back to my Helium days. You may want to find out if they took anything from you. At this point, I'm...

I'm not trying to be disloyal to Hubpages - far from it - but I have a specific request about its competitors. I am currently writing an article for a professional newsletter aimed at my fellow librarians, a profession which is getting into a tiswas about its public image. I wish to encourage...
