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!

Have there been any improvements on Knol? Is it still not indexing articles in their search? Are people still knolling? or do you think it is not worth it at this point?Thanks!

Is Google's Knol, which is a kind of their version of HubPages, worth a shot?Because it is Google´s directory, do you think they take links published in articles in their Knol more seriously?By the way links from Knol are dofollow links.

Its obviously good because its Google, I don't know how good they are for backlinking because the links you put in an article don't seem to come up on Yahoo site explorer :S

Do you enjoy writing for Knol? How is the earning there?I didn't find the Knol write tools as good as Hubpages but their revenue sharing is 100% (which sounds very good). What do you think about knol? Is it worth the trouble?
