Using Redgage to Promote Content
I am always on the search for new ways to promote online content. I’ve used stumbleupon, pinterest, reddit, digg, but one of the promising sites I’ve found has been Redgage.com .
Now I say found. There are many hubs about redgage here at hubpages and to be honest I’ve used redgage for quite some time. Well “used” may be a strong word. Let’s say that until recently I’ve posted bits of content to redgage. Now I’m starting to use it daily.
What is Redgage
In short, Redgage is a content listing/promotion site with a community feel. Redgage allows you to upload pictures, videos, links and to blog. For every 1000 unique views your content receives you are paid a share of the advertising posted with your content. You also receive bonuses for featured content, which are usually $2 - $5. The community can comment on and rate your photos. These comments aren’t usually as in depth as what you find on hubpages, but they are a nice way of showing community support.
Redgage pays via its’ own debit card. When you reach the $25 threshold you can withdraw funds to your card and use them at will. It really is a great premise.
Using Redgage for Content Promotion
Often I’ll track my keyword relevant hubs, articles, and blog posts to see where they rank on the search engines. Often they are several pages deep or nonexistent. What I’ve noticed with Redgage listings is that quite often they are at the top of the search engines. For example I wrote a hub on going to college at 40. Now it was keyword relevant and placed well on the search engines, but when I promoted the link on redgage the link and description shot to the first page and stayed there for several weeks. I gain a lot of traffic and made money with both Redgage and Hubpages.
Now I can’t say that this will happen all the time and quite frankly much like hubpages your content is more likely to be viewed by the community that someone running a google search. What difference does it make? Your making money right!
Redgage as a Source of Backlinks.
We’re always hearing about quality backlinks. Folks use hubpages, squidoo, infobarrel, and a variety of other sites to create quality backlinks so why not do the same with redgage and get paid to do it. Also, you can create content relevant links in your blog posts on redgage. Again, why not get paid to promote your content everywhere!
So what is wrong with redgage? It’s glitchy! Uploading and traversing the site takes a lot of patience. It stops and starts and hiccups, but it’s worth the effort. Especially when it costs you nothing!
Give redgage a try. Users make thousands of dollars on the site each year. You might as well make a few bucks for yourself and promote your content in the process.
