Other Writing Sites which use Google Adsense

Updated on October 30, 2014

There are many sites which allow you to use Google Adsense on the content that you generate. It is not just the articles that you write but also photos that you upload that can generate a few cents. Some sites even allow you to upload your own videos.

Hereare a few sites that I have used and generated a few clicks from. Hope you find them useful. If you do decide to join these sites I would appreciate it if you used my referral links. It will help grow my network and friend circle on the site as well.


After Hubpages this was the first site I ventured out to. I heard about it in the hubpages forums and realized that a large part of the community was writing here as well. So I decided to check it out. I posted a lot of my poems here, which I had written since I was in school. The support of the creative community is far greater than on Hubpages. People are ready with constructive criticism to help you improve as a writer. I made a couple of really good friends as well.

Then I moved on to regular articles and now am not too regular on the site. However the royalties from previous articles ensure that I meet their fifty cents payment threshold each month. So I get a paypal payment from them every month in the 10th of the month without fail. Its not big money, but its money in the bank. They recently added Google Adsense and now allow you to collect on clicks and page impressions in a 50-50 split. So if you wish to Join Triond click here.


This is a site I was led to from Triond. They have a slightly different set up for writing. You can do two different types of articles called Xombytes and Xomblurbs. It can be a bit confusing to get used to the terminology and I still have to check the site to know which is which, but its fairly easy to use.

A Xombyte is like a Hub. You write an article and add images and links. They do have a minimum word count which I believe was recently pushed up to 350 words. While a Xomblurb is merely a fun way to share links. You write a 50 word description about the link and post it up for others. The Google Adsense is 100% yours, they make money from other ad publishers.

Info Barrel

Although I found this site a while ago I have not done much writing on it as yet. I discovered it from a person I did some ghost writing for. It also has Google Adsense and Chitika. It is relatively easy to get approved for Chitika if you have one approved article on the site. They do content moderation and nothing gets published below 500 words.

The quality of articles is high. After you publish ten approved articles your content is no longer moderated. Or so they say, am not yet done with ten articles myself. You can also add videos if you have some. Recently they began the friends and pm system. It is developing into something similar to Hubpages. It is much smaller in terms of the community, but yes its seems like a nice place to write. If you wish you can Join Info Barrel Here.

You Say Too

As I said one site leads to another. I was invited to You Say Too by a fellow Hubber, Pear Diver. It also allows you to write blogs on its site as well as import blogs that you write for. They have the regular Hubpage type set up which allows you to make friends with other site members, but they also have a pm system which Hubpages is missing.

Besides using Google Adsense they also allow you to use the Amazon Affiliate code. Unlike hubpages you can not choose the products. They do that on their own. They also have a new Awards scheme which allows you to win some cash and fun gifts. Join You Say Too here.


This is the site that I have barely used. Just wanted to try it out but realized I was wearing myself out trying to publish on so many sites. So I decided to leave this one be. There are a few photos and a couple of articles on this one, but I am not really using the site too much. Probably because I never saw much income being generated by the site.

There are people here who will hit your ads for you if you hit theirs for them. A system which I feel is horrible. People should like what you write and be genuinely interested in the ads that they click. So I don't want my account to be banned by Google and I avoid the site.

She Told Me

While She Told Me is not a writing site, it does help get your sites more traffic. Plus you can add the Google Adsense Id to help make a few extra cents. I have just started using it two weeks ago and so am yet to see any real income. However they too have a good option to book mark stuff that you have written on other sites. This will help in the pages getting back links and ranking higher in the search engines. Click here to Join She Told Me.

      Triond is a waste of time. Also, this site does not update or accurately keep money detail of how many people visit your articles or how much is being made.

      Also, you can not make anything from this site off adsense. This is one of the worse sites out there. The only site worthwhile where you can make some thing is suite 101.

      I have had as few as 20 aticles on suite 101 and made nearly 50 bucks. I have made as much as 80 cents with Triond with more than 20 articles before I removed them.

      Like you said Lady E, HP is the best.

      For sheer quality control I'd say Info Barrel, but for almost instant money generation I would have to go with Triond.

      Thanks for this, I've seen a few new sites too. I wonder which one you would rate the best - after HP ofcourse. :)

      There is no referral system at Qondio...but I guess that goes to prove I think it's good...I get nothing for recommending it. :)

      That is so true Scheng1. It does improve the page ranks too.

      Good to hear that there are so many sites for using google adsense. It's good to have a few writing sites to provide backlinks to the articles in each other.

    • cashmere profile imageAUTHOR


      8 years ago from India

      Mulberry1 I have heard of Qondio, but never got around to trying it out. Is there a referral system? I'd like to join your network if there is.

      Drwibble thanks for pointing that out. Yes, what I meant is 100% of the revenue when your Google Adsense code is being displayed.

    • Drwibble profile image


      8 years ago from UK

      Just to point out the terms from the Xomba website on revenue sharing is

      "Xomba splits its Google Adsense revenue with users 50/50. We do this by changing the Adsense code every time the page is viewed. So half the time someone views your article, our Adsense code is being used, and the other half of the time, your Adsense code is being used"

      But your hub mentions 100%

      Thank you for the information. I have used Xomba a little bit but not too much. I like Qondio. I gives me Adsense and it also allows you to run almost any other type of ads as well. Plus you get Do Follow backlinks. You might want to check it out and see if you would also recommend it.

      Dear fishtiger, I know just what you mean. The terminology at Xomba was what made me unsure about how to start off there. Now its better.

      Thank you Dame Scribe. Are you on any of these other sites?

      Excellent hub. I had joined Xomba a month ago but was confused about the blurbs and bytes and you made it very understandable, I can't thank you enough.

    • cashmere profile imageAUTHOR


      8 years ago from India

      I know what you mean Hello, that's how it was with me before they integrated Google Adsense into the account. Now things are better.

      Sabu I would say Hubpages is No.1, then triond, next would be Xomba, followed by Info Barrel and last is Flixya.

      I agree with u Anamika. My experience has been similar.

      I know what you mean alekhouse, am running against an ebook deadline as I type.

      Successfulblogger, it was the same with me, till i figured out the number of clicks in my adsense were the same as the number of times they wrote hit on my wall.

      aquaseacreative, hubpages is the best!

      Keeping up with them all is so hard. Triond kept emailing and emailing - 'you haven't published yet...' and in the end I think they gave up on me (though I do plan to go back there and give it a try). I think Xomba is my next stop - but I do really like Hubpages, just have to force myself to diversify.

      I am on Flixya and I wasn't sure what people meant by hit so I would just write hit back to them. I didn't spend enough time there.

      Good information, Cashmere. I am only with Hubpages and Yousaytoo, because I don't have time for anything else. I have 4 blogs to keep up and two online paying jobs. so with research, reading, and running a business that takes up all my time.

      I am with all those Sites. So far my best earner is HubPages. But Triond and InfoBarrel also have been steady earners with less articles so i guess it is worth to put some more time writing there. Xomba too gets me 1 or 2 clicks a day. I am yet to start writing on Yousaytoo. I have a couple of garden pictures in Flixya and 2 articles and they do not earn me anything. All this sites helps in cross promoting so it is not a bad idea to write in more than one site.

      I have tried Triond and wrote 12 articles but not a lot of income came from it. I don't know what to make of that one. Mind you I haven't anything from hub either so far and hoping there will be a cloud-burst soon. I have got 184 hubs there. I will try out Info Barrel because they say you shoud have several and I am looking for more.. Thank you for your good advice.

      Hi Cashmere: For the last one year I must have tried 10 different sites and finally got hooked on to HP. I'm thinking of trying Info Barrel but the only problem is the 'time'. I hardly get time to write even though I want to. Thx for the info.
