    Before I spend another dime on resources, can anyone explain SheToldMe, and how it works with HubPages?? Is it just another same, same ?? Thank you.

      SheToldMe is a hangover from the days when any backlink was a good backlink.  The idea was that you posted teasers to your Hubs or blog posts - not with any expectation that a real reader would see them, but for the purpose of getting a backlink to impress Google.

      These days, Google is not impressed by that kind of backlink.  In fact, Google penalizes sites which are just a list of links with very little text, which is a perfect description of ShetoldMe.  I was surprised when the site started charging for membership, since its usefulness to webmasters is long over - but there are thousands of newbies arriving on the internet every day, reading outdated advice on how to get traffic, and they're easy to con.

    SheToldMe allows you to share stuff from the web. When people clicks on ads displayed on the post you publish on SheToldMe you will earn money. Same as on HubPages. You can share anything on that site not just stuff from HubPages. Of course you have to promote your posts on SheToldMe and have people vote it up for many to see your posts and possible click on Google ads. The catch is that while it is free to join SheToldMe, if you want to be able to post stuff on there you have to pay.

        You are better off posting at the sites where you can do it for free. I earned money at She Told Me, but not even enough to pay the charge. There are so many free ones out there, that I felt it was silly to pay.

      You can provide a link to the Hub and say a few words about it. Or you can write a post without taking them to HubPages. I left that site because every year you have to pay to be able to post stuff on there and because my posts didn't get any activity and didn't bring any ad clicks and revenue.

    Thats pretty bad. They want our content and our money too? That is absurd.

      I believe it was $12 for one year. Doesn't seem like much but when you are not earning a dime or hardly getting any traffic for the things you post on there it becomes useless. At least that was my experience. I am sure there are people who've been successful on that site.

      Unless I overlooked it they don't tell that you have to pay to be able to share stuff on that site until you sign up for an account on there and are approved. They tell you free to sign up so you are all happy and then in the end you find out that you gotta pay to share stuff, which is ridiculous. And once you pay (via PayPal) you are on automatic renewal so if you forget about that site you will get money taken off your PayPal every year...

    I think this screenshot of the the site's front page should tell you whether it's a good idea to pay them for posting privileges.

        Lol, that's the perfect analogy for it. To the owner's credit, he/she must be pretty clever for convincing people it's worth paying for.  I wonder if it's some kind of elaborate trolling.   This can't be serious.

          Most people don't click the ads anyway. I notice even at HP, I have over 25,000 views on some hubs, and only about 3 people clicked the thumbs up.

            You can't tell who clicked the thumbs up?
