What is Red Gage? Does anyone use it?

    Here's the link. Does anyone know anything about it or use it?


    If it reposts what you post on Hubpages, would that be unacceptable to hubpages?

      Wow! I had forgotten all about this site. I joined up 7 years ago and I just checked - I have a balance total of $9.60! With no new content posted in over 6 years. At least they have staying power, LOL!

        Wow! That is not worth the effort!

    I used it for a couple years, starting about 7 years back and have earned a whopping $1.40 in all that time and no noticeable traffic referred to my content.  I'm sure others have done much better.  As far as being acceptable to HP, I don't see why not.  You are not posting duplicate content, you are sharing a link to content that is hosted somewhere else.  Unless you have tons of friends there, it won't do much help.

    However, if you have tons of fans on other social networks like Twitter and FB then sharing links to Redgage might do some good as long as the shares are relevant to the current conversation.

    Like Austinstar, your post reminded me of my dormant RedGage account. I just checked. I had last posted there 2 years ago. It was a couple of photos, and they got a grand total of 20 views, so I stopped bothering. But with your reminder, I just uploaded another photo. We'll see.

    BTW, my blog postings there, some with links to hubs, have historically done much better than photos alone. But I haven't uploaded a blog post in 3 years. Maybe I'll try that and see if it gets views. Of course I don't posts copies of hubs, but I have posted differently worded summaries or introductions with links to the hubs.

    Well people do write articles on redgage. Also, people do what I always did there, just bust a link.

    The backlinking strategies of old apparently aren't a good idea anymore.

    So to the poster, you can not publish an article on redgage that you also have published here. You CAN link your articles published here on redgague, or redgage, or whatever it is.

    People who don't have adsense accounts, or lost them, have done redgage and got paid from writing there. I'm glad to hear the place is still around. They can keep whatever they owe me. I did publish a few short bits there.

      Hi Tess - The first day I joined RedGage, I posted I think it was a blog post or a recipe and applied for the daily prize giveaway and won it! It was $25 that they send you on a pre-loaded credit card, which they then also use to apply your future earnings to. Since then I haven't made much, but most of my posts are links to my articles. I believe Ron is right, that blog posts get more views on RedGage than any other, unless you're a really good photographer. Great photos get a lot of looks. There seems to be a community of photographers on there who view one another's photo postings.

        Thank you. I won't be joining. I was just curious if there was an opportunity there, but it seems not. sad
