Believe me, it will be a very long journey :) To be honest, I have actually been a part of this site for a while now and have not seen much money. I haven't posted many articles yet and I only post a couple a month, but I am working on it. To be successful here, to my knowledge, you have to be very persistent in submitting articles, you have to be very active on this site, and you have to back link your articles. Personally, I do not like back linking my articles, so I tend to just write a lot of similar articles and I link my articles to each other. This has been a pretty good process so far, and I have begun to see an increase in my views and earnings lately.
