How to Make Money Online Instantly From Scratch

Updated on August 7, 2011

Making Money Online

There is a huge potential of making money on the internet if you do a few easy things rite. Here in this article you can learn some great ways of making money online. You don't need any kind of basic investment if you follow my advice. All you have to do is spare a couple of hours every day and spend that time in front of your computer doing a few simple things.

To make money from the internet, you need to have a few pages of content, where you can display ads to earn money. You can set up your own site or a blog for this purpose, but that will cost you from about 5-10$ a month, and here we want to make money online from scratch so that does not comply with this article. Still if you want to set up a site of your own read this article: "How to set up your own website".

So, what other options do we have for creating content rich pages online. Given Below is a list of sites where you can create content pages to earn money online. Best thing about these sites is their power to rank you higher in SERPs(Search Engine Result Pages). If you start a site of your own, you will need to do SEO and other stuff to get traffic towards it. While writing on the sites mentioned below will start generating traffic to your content almost instantly.


Hubpages is is one of the top writing websites. All you have to do here is write, other things are taken care of by the HubPages itself, like placing ads etc. 60% of the times your ads will be displayed while other 40% ad credit goes to HubPages.

Some tips

Whenever you want to ask a question regarding this site or making money on the web, go to these forums. Participate in these forums actively.

Do not get impatient if you are not making money in the start. If you write 2-3 quality articles every day for a couple of weeks, you will start earning something from Adsense almost every day. I won't tell you what this site can do for you if you continue to write good content consistently, you got to try it for yourself.

Read FAQs before getting started.

Join HubPages


RitePad is a relatively new website as compared to others mentioned here. It is growing and looks promising. Authors get 80% of the ad impressions on their content which is much better than 60% ad impressions shared by HubPages. RitePad is still new, which means that you can easily choose a username of your choice.

Factoidz is a bit different from others when it comes down to earning money. They pay you anywhere between $1-$5 per 1000 impressions of your article, depending on the quality of the article. They use PayPal to send payments to you. 

You will need to have at least 3 articles written before you can earn anything at Factoidz, but if you join by clicking the link given below, you will start earning from the first article you write there.

Knol is a product of Google. Good thing about it is that 100% of the ad impressions are yours. It is new and rising. Despite being Google's property, my articles at knol do not rank high in SERPs. Getting internal traffic at Knol is also a tough task.

      Glad to see your comment Crystal Hart!

      This article is more about making money online than promotion of websites, however these web 2.0 properties can be used to promote one's work. Read my hub on backlinks for promotion etc.

      Hey man, another great hub. Most people think they have to invest a lot of money to make money online when you just need to invest some time.

      I tell people they shouldn't spend money to make money online unless they've done it successfully first on a free resource like hubpages.

      Tony, if you are writing for sites like HubPages, you don't need to work hard on your articles' marketing SEO etc. These sites have already done a lot of hard work.

      Thanx for commenting. :)

      Hey UH thanks for your hub. Some very good tips here. I'm going to devote the last week of this year to putting up a new blog. Can you refer me to where I can get a not-so-expensive but good web hosting package?

      Thank you all for commenting. Glad you liked my article.

      Dohn! Happy to see your comment like always. I am also a member of EzineArticles but haven't written anything there lately. I would have loved to mention the site here but unfortunately they don't share Adsense revenue with us, so we can't earn there, thus the site doesn't fit in here. But as you said, it is the rite place if you need some quality backlinks.
