Since the panda update, this might be a good place to try your luck out. Knol is owned by Google and gives you 100% share of Adsense impressions.
Can anyone share some knol success stories?
I just started using it, I'll let you know how it turns out!
It seems like a non-starter to me. I looked into it a while ago. I can tell you it is a very rare Knol that does well in the SERPS. The ad placement is terrible too.
The person who referred me to Knol has knols that get hundreds of hits a month.
I'm not sure where they're coming from, but that sounds good to me.
after HP, IB and X are probably your next best bets, no reason to join up with a proven dud. But to each their own ,every site was a non-performer at some point.
But google owns tons of poor performers, the balance seems to weigh heavier on the fail side.

While I don't know how much $ they're making, I was able to get this info off of them just now. It's a co-worker of mine. The traffic is there, I just don't know the profitability.
If anything, it's another backlink to my hubs!
if I remember correctly know includes the nofollow attribute in it's header, so there is not much benefit in backlinks.
That's partly true. You have to become a "trusted" author.

I have never seen a Knol show up first page in a search.
100% of nothing - since the placement is garbage as WA stated.
I actually get decent traffic with Knol, which I drive to more profitable sites. I have to admit though there is an element of 'luck' factor in there, only one article is doing well, everything else has leveled off a 10-50 daily visitors.
My advice would be to team up with others and create collections with Knol, otherwise you will rarely get any traffic.
Great tip - I didn't know about the revenue sharing. This has been on my list - thank you very much!

I've heard they slow traffic down although I have a few hubs with call outs that are doing well, so I'm not sure what to do. I hear some say they're fine and others that they are traffic killers. Would appreciate some...

Traffic went down like the Titanic, this happened suddenly just over a week ago. What might be the cause? Who is seeing the same? I have a dark scent that HP, which is a critical platform as well, might become a victim...
