I joined RedGage 2 days ago. I got an email saying if I got 3 more people to join w/in 48 hrs, I'd get a 50% increase in my earning rate for 30 days. I got 4 signups, which gave me 80 points toward the $25 daily drawing, which I won today!
I posted links to 10 of my hubs. Immediately on finishing, I had 13 cents.
Check out RedGage. You can see englightenedsoul's RedGage hubs or sunforged's hub on SEO Tips...Backlinks.
I have been with RedGage for 4 months now. I have made some $95$ + and have withdrawn $75 so far. But i have a warning for non US citizens. You are going to have payment issues. After the first transfer to the card if you want RedGage to transfer you money then The RedGage Card requires you to register on the giftcards site and only a US citizen has the option to register there. Without registeration further payment transfers are not possible so your first payout may be all you may be able to cash in. Also do I need to say that the transaction charges on RedGage Visa Cards for purchase is very high?
That's interesting Anamika:) I'm apparently one of the very few hubbers over there who are not doing well, so have only earned $4 in all the time I've been with them. But maybe it isn't worth my while expending more energy over there if I'm going to have trouble using the card? I'm in Spain and their banking system stinks as it is. I've been here over 7 years and still don't understand their bank statements or charges. What on earth would I do with a card I can't use?
Hmm .. I am a US citizen, but I live in Japan. Does that mean that I will also run into the payment problem? Also, maybe I'm confusing redgage with some other sites, but I thought they pay non-US residents via paypal?
Or maybe I shouldn't worry .. I only made $5.11 so far!
Still nothing. Last email from you was almost 24 hrs ago. Nothing on my questions on RedGage.
Seems somehow I got subscribed to a bunch of MSN RSS feeds and had thousands of messages in Outlook. I dumped most of them. Not sure if that had anything to do with my recent quirks. Maybe after I shut down and re-start my computer it will resolve. Probably won't do that now. I really have to go to bed soon. I have tons of (non-computer) stuff to do tomorrow.
I think you can upload a .doc file. That would qualify as knowledge based content that would enter you in the drawing. If I'm understanding it right
I'm a Mac and I don't use Microsoft so I'm trying to upload my article in a PDF format. I sent them the file and they say it is good, nothing wrong with it. They are just having issues with their upload feature. I want to use the PDF in a collection that has links to my hubs that are related to the topic of the PDF. Did I over explain that? I do have a master plan in there somewhere... it's just a little confusing.
Wyanjen you are right .doc file qualifies as knowledge based content. And also as redgage is in beta there ocassionally occurs some problem with the uploading feature. Sometimes you may not be able to import your blog as well.
Never worry with me. I'm a 'more is more' kinda gal.
So I could post Microsoft Word documents? For example, I could post my questionnaire for breast cancer post op, and I could include a link to my breast cancer hub? Would it show and print pretty much like my original Word doc?
When I was first stumbling around RG, I did a search with the document tab to see what it was about. I can't say if I was seeing PDFs or Word files in the results. They appear in the viewing box exactly as they are formatted with fonts & pics & what-not, but you cannot access the text to click a contextual link. It behaves like a photo, not text.
I had asked last week if, since my article is a PDF and RG is not displaying the text in a capsule, I could use the same article on a different site. But the answer is: the Google bots use OCR so they can scan the text of a .doc or PDF file that has been uploaded like an attachment. So, it would be duplicate content. I was not planning to put a PDF of an exact hub up there but I was going to use an article from Ezine. Glad I asked first lol
I joined about a week ago, and hope that anyone who hasn't found me there will look for me. I have posted some links and some artwork I've done, as well. I haven't found it a great site for generating money yet, but I'm sure it builds. I will look for anyone from HP to friend with, and hope you all will look for me there as well.
Thank you. One of my pieces of artwork made their home page (or front page or whatever it is called there) and made me $5.00, which seems nice for a simple upload. Thanks to everyone for looking for me there!
Okay, I'm wondering if anyone finds redgage to be really buggy/glitchy (whatever the word is)? I am having problems uploading photos and no amount of trying back or refreshing the page helps. Edweirdo did help me out with a great trick (to hit the black part of the "browse" button instead of the word "browse"), but then I got stuck at "processing", lol!
Another thing ... seems people are saying that they can't find people (I'm assuming you type in the username in the search box). Sunforged put up the link to mhlickteig's profile page and I tried that with some others by not doing search, but by typing in www.redgage.com/username and I got to the person's profile page and hit add friend. So you guys having problems finding people might want to try this! I'm yummymummy there, btw!
If you use the search box, you have to type "by username", like "by rmcrayne". If the person has not posted anything yet, it won't bring them up. I started with one or two hubbers, then went through their friends.
Have heart! I wrote my first hub 26 Aug 09. I got my AdSense set up 11 Nov 09 with 46 hubs, and made in the ball park of $10 for Nov. I made my first payout 22 Mar 2010 with 117 hubs. If current stats hold, I should be hitting payout every other month now.
Except HubMob, I've committed to prioritizing backlinking over hub writing until I get all my hubs on multiple bookmarking sites, and maybe do some blogs too. Have you read sunforged's SEO Tips...Backlinks hub?
I have been here for 4 months and I am not even close to payout and I have been backlinking like crazy. I have a website that promotes hubpages and Im gonna start a blog but I have days where I have lots of views and I will make 30 to 40 cents a day and then I will have 5 days straight of 0 so it is very disheartening. But I will hang in there and write more hubs. Thanks for the advice,
Rose makes as much friends possible. even if you go an a adding spree is okk...Because even if one of them rates or comments on your work, it is shown in the whole network. you can check your dashboard for example.
i just joined today but can't even get started. every time i try to type in my profile i get thrown off with a pop up page from google saying they are unable to find the redgage link. has this happend to any of you? if so did you ever get past it to where you could start your work?
CONGRATS RM and thanks for starting this post! I've been debating if RedGage was worth the effort. Based on the info here, it sounds like it is. I'll put you down as referring me and will let you know when I'm up and running.
Hi as far as I am aware you can add what combinations you like in your collections. I even read somewhere the idea that you can upload the same photo or links into different collections. However I am not sure if that is a good idea or not.
I am curious about how easy it is to use the card in the UK. If anyone has any experience of this I would be interested to hear about it.
I have read that you need to keep/retain the first card you are issued with as all future payments are 'topped up' onto that card. Also I think there is an admin. charge deducted from the first $25 payment the first time when the card is issued.
So, from what you understand, RG suggested for example that I could put my Body Ecology Diet" hub links in my "Diet and Exercise" collection, and in my "Nutrition" collection.
I assume also that I could have a "Diet and Exercise" collection with links to all of my Diet and Exercise hubs. THen I could do a Blogger blog with my Diet and Exercise hub links. Then I could post the blog link for each hub to the RG blog?
Then I could do shopping lists or exercise DVD logs and post in documents?
Sounds like the admin fee on the card is just one time, not each transaction?
I cannot believe it, i just cannot. I have just received a phone call offering me a job, teaching creative skills for headway, i was recommended by someone who has seen me work with the elderly before. I...
