    Do you use RedGage as a place to share your Hub Links or to make additional revenue?

    If so, do you find it profitable

    I've actually never heard of it before so I checked it out. It looks like a photo sharing site. How would you monetize your posts on RedGage?

      lifelovemystery I had not heard of it either until yesterday.  Monetizing happens with clicks, using links say to HubPages and also posting photographs and videos. . Seems it helps increase traffic to these pages.

    I've used Redgage for over a year. I joined after a Hubber posted a hub about it suggesting it as a great way to get links to your hubs, but not as a useful way to earn money. Anything you post earns a measly 60c per 1000 views, although apparently that can rise if you interact more with the community. The payout threshold is $25 (I think), but they pay via a visa debit card sent to your home address. A lot of people complained that they couldn't use the card if they lived outside the US, so recently they offered a virtual form of the card - I'm not sure how that works - or even if it does.

    However, they had a major revamp a few months back and the page showing the few dollars that I had accumulated has been replaced with "Your account data is currently being transferred from our previous site." Others have also complained about this. I wonder if ANYONE has actually had their earnings transferred yet - it's been MONTHS!

    The new look might be more appealing, but the stats info that they show is very poor. I can't see my posts listed or see how many views I have unless, I go through them page by page.

    Worst of all, the links have dried up. I never expected any income from their complicated and inconvenient set-up but I was pleased to get a nice steady trickle of views from Redgage to some of my hubs, but I haven't seen any views from Redgage at all since their 'still ongoing' revamp started all those months ago.

      chasmac I found mention on HubPages that one person had  earned over $1000 in a year mainly posting their photographs and linking  Hub to get more traffic.   This was something which interested me.  Perhaps better  to wait for the revamp to complete!

      Correction to my post, Sally. I just saw I'm still getting some traffic to my hubs from Redgage - so it's still worth using it for that purpose at least.

      chasmac - I appreciate your input chasmac - I guess it's all about getting traffic to our Hubs and we could do with every bit of help we can get.at the moment.  Thank you Sally
