Links to 'Get Paid to Write' Sites

Updated on June 19, 2014

Before I joined hubpages, I have encountered many writing sites in search engines. All of them give writing platforms for anyone who has interests in writing online. You can write about a wide variety of topics and you can write in just about any writing site you like. Actually, there are a lot of online writers who decide to write not just in one site but they are actually writing in other sites as well, making use of Google AdSense or Chitika Ads earnings.

If you haven’t started writing yet, you must be wondering how your articles can earn. Whenever your articles have been visited and viewed, your article generates earnings as long as you have Google AdSense or Chitika Ads. Different writing sites offer different types of earnings. Some writing sites offer a percentage of your earnings with Google AdSense, Chitika Ads, and/or other affiliate marketing ads. Some only give you earnings whenever your articles get a thousand page impressions.

In this article, you will be introduced to different writing sites that offer earnings for your articles. It’s really up to you to decide where you want to start writing. Remember that there are many sites that invite you to write for free, however, they never mentioned that you will be earning in case you join them. It’s okay if you just want to write, but if you somehow want to generate earnings online, then start writing for ‘get paid to write’ sites.

The following sites are all free to join and can help you generate earnings online. The links will take you straight to their sites.


In here, your articles are called hubs. A content writer is called a hub author. And your webpages are called hubpages. It can be confusing at first, but you’ll get used to it. You can write about any topic in this site; journalism, politics, food recipe, song lyrics, poetry, or any topic you can think of. You can’t write about adult contents and gambling. You can’t link your hubs to adult contents and gambling sites. You can use text, photos, videos, and links to demonstrate your topics. This site accepts language in English only. Earnings here are split 60/40; 60% goes to the hub author, and 40% goes to HubPages admins. Earnings are generated through ad clicks and every time your hub generates thousand page impressions. Aside from Google AdSense, you can also earn through Amazon, eBay, and the HP Ad Program. If you want additional earnings, and you have already written five high-quality non-promotional hubs, you can apply for the flagship hubs program. From this program, your hub can earn $25 upon completion in which it should meet strict standards.


 

 

 

Whether you have products to sell or you simply just want to share information online, you can use Squidoo as your platform.



In this site, your webpage is called a lens. Writers of this site are called lensmasters. You can link your page to other sites, build RSS feeds, and share photos while you write your topic. Whether you simply want to write online or you have products to sell, you can create a lens to highlight your knowledge or product. Squidoo lens is ideal for bloggers, experts, podcasters, authors, and entrepreneurs.



You earn 50% royalties on ads from Google AdSense. You also earn 50% royalties on ads in Amazon, eBay, CafePress, or their other commerce partners. 45% of the earnings goes to Squidoo and the remaining 5% goes to charity.


In Wizzley, the pages an author creates are called wizzles. Once you pass their screening process, you can earn in many ways through this site. You will have a choice of earning through AdSense or Chitika. Aside from that, you can sell your own products through Zazzle. You are also given the chance to earn through Amazon, VigLink (eBay), and AllPosters. You will be paid directly by the ad programs and/or the affiliates that you have joined. You will be paid 50% up to 60% of the page impressions of your articles. If you are serious about writing and earning, you might want to take a look at this site for serious writing and earning opportunities. You do need to write a 400 word minimum article in this site.


You can publish articles, pictures, audios, videos, reviews, and how-to guides in this site. For your articles to be published immediately in the site, you’d need to become eligible for preapproval. For preapproval, you need to have published at least 10 articles with this site and a member for at least 14 days. You’d be able to earn money in this site from Google AdSense. They give you 75% earnings from page views of your articles. They discourage profanity and duplicated contents. When you submit your articles to this site, your works will first be reviewed before they go live on the site.



Bubblews is a writers' community where the writer will enjoy revenue sharing. Once a writer submits his/her post, it will become a bubble in its website. This bubble will either shrink or grow based on how many people reads it, likes it, or dislikes it.


In Bukisa, you can submit how-to guides and other informative articles. You can submit articles here that you have already submitted to other sites as long as you are the original writer. However, they would still encourage you to change a few things from your works to avoid search engine duplication.

For your earning methods, you will be given a choice of the type of ads you want to be displayed in your contents whether to use AdSense or Chitika Ads. If you choose to use AdSense, you will receive 60% of the revenues the ads create. If you choose to use Chitika Ads, your Chitika Ads will be shown in your content 60% of the time and you will earn that revenue.



You can write about any topic in this site. You can use any media format for your articles. You can write texts, show photos and videos to demonstrate your topic more clearly. You focus on your writing and they would do the online marketing for you. However, you are still required to make a little effort to increase traffic to your site. Your articles generate earnings every thousand page impressions. Or according to Triond site, “The amount you earn will depend on the number of views your articles generate and the average value of a page view for that page”. This site accepts articles written in any language. You submit your articles to them and the editorial team of this site will be the ones to publish your articles online. They publish your articles in sites that go well with your topic and language. According to Triond, “We publish content on the websites we operate, as well as on those operated by partner web publishers”. They don’t allow contents that “contain derogatory, offensive, unlawful, harmful, threatening, vulgar, profane, abusive, harassing, obscene, pornographic, defamatory or tortuous material”.

 

 

 

 

So, there you go. You can choose where you want to join if and when you decide to write online. Some of these sites give better offer than others. But in all sites, you can write anything you want. No deadlines, no contracts, no obligations, and no pressure.

      Excellent Post, I only know one in this list HubPages. :) I will check out the other ones soon. I wish I had more time to check out them. There are few more I used before but didn't have much time. Thisisby.us is another HubPages like site you may like. http://www.thisisby.us/ Cheers.

      Thanks for sharing this information-

      I am certain it took many years of writing on-line to know all this

      I found it very interesting- I never tried to write online for money- being a poet we just - think we throw it out for fee-

      it must be a great deal of work-- to figure out how to get this in a mode of money making--

      what I think we all wonder is does anyone actually make money at doing this and how much? and if the time is added up- and all the work bottom lined

      don't we all pretty much end up doing it for free? LOL

      Hi Tiara, I've read in forums some people are actually earning from their articles. You've got to know online marketing though.

      Yes, it's pretty much for free for some. But others are experiencing it differently. Anyway, most people who join really just want to share something.

      On Helium you can leapfrog your article and use that as an edit to replace the old copy. So you can edit your materials, but not delete the article once it is up.

      You're right that only US residents can make good money on Associated Content - foreigners can earn pennies but that's all. 

      I don't recommend Helium for a number of reasons which I outline in this Hub:

      http://hubpages.com/hub/Heliumcom---Writing-Fun-or...

      They won't accept membership from a few countries anyway, including India.

    • BeatsMe profile image

      BeatsMe 7 years ago

      Hi BkCreative, I agree, Shvoong sounds interesting. But it's not going to be a good site to earn, though, if I'm not mistaken. I don't think 10% earning will add up.

      Good luck. :)

      Thanks for leaving a link to the site. I think people who'd like to join should review their conditions carefully, though. Its conditions look a bit like that of (the now defunct) thisisby.us. Though there were few people who loved writing for the site, there were others who are not happy with its earning potentials. Hopefully, it will not be that way with howhypedia.com.

      Beats me, How or on what sites can you get ads from yahoo

      My email is with them and im on bing.com but did not know about yahoo ads. Thats another great article thanks for sharing this. Oh by the way thisisby.us No longer exists. I put articles up there ages ago before coming here and some of mine say duplicate article here yet they no longer exist. Makes you wonder.

    • BeatsMe profile image
      Author

      BeatsMe 7 years ago

      Hi Eileen, Triond uses yahoo ads but you don't get paid directly from yahoo. Triond takes care of everything. Now, they're also integrating google ads if you allow them but many people are complaining about 'em, some are satisfied though.

      About thisisby.us, did you check the link of your articles with them? Your articles are probably still up, I don't know. But I've read somewhere that articles are never deleted on the internet. I don't know how credible that is, though. But that is probably the reason why it's displaying duplicate content.

      Hope you resolve this problem soon. :)

    • Eileen Hughes profile image

      Eileen Hughes 7 years ago from Northam Western Australia

      Thanks for that, info, yes will have to check that link out although it is not woth wortrying about duplicate now as still earning with some of them. One is my best one I had thought of deleting then thought better of it as something better than no dollars at all.

      Hi, it's nice to know that there are other sites out there that can help you make some money, I admit I am getting lazy, and I need to start earning some more, but I always get distracted and end up writing another hub! Which is great because we do earn here, but I do need to branch out a bit! thanks for the info. Nell

      Hi Nell, it is nice to branch out a bit because we also need links from other sites to our hubs. It does help increase traffic. Some hubbers do it to increase traffic and others just do it for additional earnings.

All together I made $636.00 in only a few months. They pay $15.00 an article and 7.50 for some. It was hard at times but I certainly learned a lot.

      Try out Read Our Novels at www.readournovels.com.

      You get paid by the audience you attract. You need to open a free registered account before you can do much at all but after that, if you want to be an author there, you apply to be an author and after that just start uploading your novels. The only thing holding you back after that is if the novel is worth paying to read.
