Is writing for Blasting News worth it?

    I've recently tried creating articles for Blasting News, and I'm already skeptical about them.

    Does anyone have any experience with Blasting News and what are your thoughts?

      "Blasting News", you just never know and I hope he succeeds.

      [Edit] Doesn't sound promising from your post.

      [Edit] Abandon (opinion).

                    The site we’ve been discusssing in this thread all along, Blasting News!

  2. Glenn Stok profile image99
    Glenn Stokposted 7 months ago

    Blasting News is another content mill. And we already know that business strategy always fails. Google wants niche sites.

    What’s worse is that news is not evergreen. You have to keep working hard, very hard, to blast out new news all the time.

    You only get paid for the first 30 days for each article, and only if you got 150 views or more in that month. Then your articles remain for free and the owners continue to get rich (whatever rich is).

    Blasting News started in 2013 and they already have a history of giving excuses for not paying on time.

    Need to know more? Here's a good review:

      Sounds like one of those sites where the work to pay ratio is nowhere near worth it

      That's a good review and yeah I thought I'd give it a try but I'll definitely skip it. I'd rather have my own website than write for people and get little in return .

      The layout is also very amateurish with often obselete news articles. Thanks Glenn.

        There's a very simple rule to follow when deciding whether a writing site is worth joining.   If it allows anyone to join and post articles on any topic, it's 90% certain that it's a waste of time.   Google hates generalist sites - that's why HubPages has launched the niche sites. 

        The exception is news sites, and that's probably why Blasting News has chosen to launch as a news site.  The trouble is, sites don't get to choose whether Google classifies them as news sites - Google decides. For instance, Google classified DailyTwoCents as a news site for a while, and it did well for that period.

          So if they're branded as a news site, do they get more leverage than other writing sites or does it not matter if Google still says Blasting News is a content mill?

          1. Marisa Wright profile image99
            Marisa Wrightposted 7 months agoin reply to this

            No, being branded a news site doesn't necessarily help.

      Not paying on time??? W ell, that sounds like the online gambling industry for affiliates.

    Sorry. I've scrapped all writing sites.

    When HubPages goes, I'm done.

    My own website is it.

    Is it?

  5. paradigmsearch profile image91

    Or just another writing site wannabe?

    Yes or no. Do I invest my time?
