      Do you mean like scams and rip-offs?

        There are a ton of scams out there on the internet!  However, I believe the original question was for everyone to share other sites wherein you can make money similar to HP by writing and not playing games.  Sharing is good as there are a lot of 'newbies' that don't have a clue on where to look.....I have found that there are very few people here that like to share this information and for those that do they have nothing to hide. 


        These are the three that I know of.

    I think too many newbs get online and think "I want to make money!" and they're really losing the whole point of the internet.

    My first experience online was back in 1996, and in 1997 I got a dial-up modem. As well as surfing the internet and reading and learning I got my first webpage up on Geocities in '98. By 2000 I had a popular site. Didn't earn me a cent, because it wasn't monetized.

    It was in 2005 I implemented Adsense. And I'm glad I had all that time to learn a lot about the internet. Nowadays people want to learn too fast. They're trying to apply things that hasn't had time to sink in.

    All too often people are too focused on "make money fast".

      A sign of the times, Darkside.  Either instant gratification or don't bother - anything that takes more than a day or two, perhaps a whole (gasp) week just isn't worth it.

    To earn online you have to have your fingers in that many pies to earn and you also have to think like an entrepreneur instead of collecting all the ways to make money online into a list, you have to trial and error certain things and measure your results!

    I always say it's best to have more than one handful of money makers, because you never know when a few of them will suddenly disappear and always look for things you can focus on that will make money, so for example if you start with Adsense around your content or affiliate programs like Amazon and you see earnings, then focus on these ones more for awhile and then start to focus on others to help grow your income....slow and steady wins the race and a smarter worker is better than working too hard for peanuts!

    Unfortunately, as in any business, you have to offer something people really want in order for you to make money. It's NOT easy. When I became serious about trying to make a living online after over a decade of puttering around on the web, it still took two years to build up to my goal of earning at least $1200 a month (minimum wage, basically).

    My experience parallels Darkside's, save that I started building non-money-earning websites in 1993. You don't want to wait as long as we did before you start experimenting with monetizing your content. However, you do need to learn what it is you know, love, and share on the web which gets readers and visitors. You need to learn how to write for an audience. A resource like Hubpages or Squidoo or Zazzle is just a tool, a publishing platform: it won't make any money for you if you don't provide something worth reading, worth seeing, or worth buying.

    So the most important thing is to post early, post often, mine your interests and your everyday life for topics that might make a good article/product/ebook, and watch closely to see which of your online efforts are working. It takes trial and error, and you'll have some duds along the way. You can get a leg up by learning techniques like SEO (search engine optimization) and conversion optimization (how to encourage clicks on ads and sales of products), but those techniques still depend on good content that people find interesting, useful or entertaining.
