Zujava vs Squidoo
What is Zujava?
Zujava is a new revenue sharing website where you can easily publish your content as well as make some money from your writing. It is quite similar to Squidoo, and even was launched by a veteran lensmaster.
This content publishing platform can be a great alternative to Squidoo, or a way to complement your online income and promote your lenses. I'll outline some of the biggest similarities and differences between these two sites on the page below.
How Zujava is Similar to Squidoo
- Ads: similarly to Squidoo, Zujava places adverts on your articles automatically. You don't need to use your AdSense account to make money!
- Payment system: Zujava has three payout tiers ("buckets") and ranks articles according to their ZQ score. Payouts are made via PayPal.
- Amazon commissions: you receive commissions on sales made via Zujava's Amazon sections. During the beta phase these earnings used to go into the general ad pool, but now they are attributed to you.
- Interlinking: just like Squidoo, Zujava has categories and tags which help your articles get found. There's also an automatic related article feature.
- Likes: Zujava also has an internal "Like" system which you can use to show appreciation to the articles you've enjoyed reading.
How Zujava is Different from Squidoo
- WYSIWYG editor: Zujava offers a visual editor for all sections, so you don't have to enter HTML manually. You can switch to HTML mode if you wish though.
- Referral earnings: this website gives you 25% of what your referrals earn (taken from Zujava's share), rather than a one-time bonus like Squidoo does.
- Modules: Zujava only offers 15 sections at the moment, although all the essentials (text, video, image gallery, Amazon, etc) are present.
- Communication: Zujava team responds to bug and spam reports very fast, although to be fair, they have many times less content to check than Squidoo does.
- Competition: since Zujava is so small, it's a lot easier to rank well if you have interesting content and a little bit of traffic.
