Best 5 Everything Paid to Write Site Legitimate Or Not?
Is It Legitimate?
Best 5 Everything is a new paid to write site that I came across several months ago. I usually create an account at new sites to see if they are legitimate paid to write sites to help prevent scams of newbie online writers looking for paid to write opportunities.
However, this site I find a little weird. Best 5 Everything is a site where writers create short lists of the best 5 topics on everything from music to food. After creating the list the list is rated and given points. The more points your list receives the higher the payout would be. In the end the points are calculated and your payment is made though an Amazon Gift Card or you can choose to Donate to Charity.
While it sounds good it’s not all that great because your earnings come from AdSense and the AdSense is shared throughout the entire site meaning that AdSense earnings will be split amongst the whole entire Best 5 Everything community.
Although the new site has a huge community and growing I have yet to see any earnings from the seven Best 5 lists I have created and I don’t really think anyone else is seeing any earnings. I would really be careful to consider the fact that writing on that site to create a paid to write income is really a waste of time but if it’s something you all want to stick with then so be it. I just really think the site is fairly new for paid to write opportunities and it may take a while to see any earnings plus the site does not include neccesary imformation such as how many points you need to accumulate before reaching the $5 min payout via Amazon gift cards, stick with sites like Hubpages and you can’t go wrong.
It's Not A Scam
Okay recently I was contacted by the owner of this site who has put in a lot of time creating it and I now feel the site is legitimate however it takes a while for new sites to get up and running with quick payouts and things of such.
If you visit the site you will see that it has a huge community of members who are all dedicated to making this site one of the best online for writers and that the lists created there by the members are very entertaining.
I wouldnt discourage you anymore from joining this site, but its fair to say that if you're looking for a quick payout you'll have to wait a while. However getting in on the ground floor of this newbie site could mean great things in the future because every new site takes time to develop as I'm sure when hubpages was created it took a while before becoming the it site for writers, create a few lists and just have patience if you can.
To the site owners I definetely do apologize if you thought i was trying to say the site best5everything is directly a scam and I am wishing you success on best5everything becoming quite popular.
