I have been spreading articles across 5 sites for about 1 year now; xomba, infobarrel, hubpages, triond and bukisa. I don't do any SEO, just write about popular everyday consumer products.
Last night I did a comparison on earnings and CTR and hubpages was clearly the winner with bukisa a near second. This test sort of tells me my efforts should be all going to hubpages because of its high PR and authority status, it clearly gets more converting organic traffic than the other sites I write for.
I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket but I also want maximum value for my efforts. Does any one have any thoughts or other places you write for that are good bang for your effort?
I started writing for Demand Studios and I'd say it could be worth the effort. The hardest part, however, is finding titles that you can actually write about. I haven't written anything for them this month but last month I made $75 which tells me there is potential.
Without doubt, I would recommend your own self hosted Wordpress blog where you can go flat out building excellent unique content and in return you get 100% of the share.
Content is King but Quality is the Queen.
It all depends on whether you want to write online for the love of writing, or the love of money.
There plenty of good sites for either if you have a week or two spare to trawl the 'net looking. Writers Cafe is a reasonably good place to write for the writing. I also find that a good blog site does just as well money wise as HP.
Good luck with your search.

I have been thinking about leaving for a while, but I know that in those times I have had something else going on that depresses me a bit. It started when I lost my brother and I began to, somewhat, lose that oomph I had for writing and publishing here.What about you?

I'm speaking mainly on your HubPages account, but also any side (or main) blogs. Do you think it hurts or helps your Hubs to have a diverse group of articles or is it better if it's all about one thing?

Iâ��m having trouble with niches, what to write and what to put on Hubpages.com. Itâ��s not so much writerâ��s block, itâ��s the fact that I may have a lot to write about, but I canâ��t seem to settle on one topic.Iâ��m thinking of starting other accounts on other...
