Make Money Online Part I: Article Writing Sites

Updated on September 10, 2015

There are hundreds of ways to make money online. One of the best ways is to earn money by writing and publishing articles on the web. There are various sites that let you to earn money through Ad Programs by publishing articles. Say there’s a website, and it allows users to join and earn money by publishing articles. That site has an Ad Program, Google AdSense. It shares 75% of the revenue earned from the articles with the user (author of those articles). That means, if a visitor visits an article through a Search, and clicks on any of the ads on that page, revenue will be earned by that page. But, 75% of that revenue will be given to you, and rest will be taken by the site. In this way, you earn from an article writing site which supports AdSense Revenue Sharing!


Note: Alexa is a website which is an official site that shows ranks of the “active” websites present on the Internet.

There are many good article writing sites that support AdSense Revenue Sharing. Some of them are:

1. HubPages

HubPages is a huge article site where anyone from any part of the world can join and publish their articles. The articles there are called “hubs”. HubPages has more than two hundred thousand “active” users on HubPages. It shares 60% of the revenue earned in a different way. In a day, 60% of the time, all the revenue will go to you if any of your hub has an ad click, and rest 40% of time, all the revenue will go to HubPages. 60% means 14.4 hours out of 24 hours, and in those 14 hours, you will be getting 100% revenue from the ad clicks. It also has its own ad program called “HubPages Ad Program” where you get paid for the number of impressions you get on your hubs.

Alexa Rank: 295

2. Seekyt

Seekyt is another article site where any user is welcomed from any part of the world. It shares 70% of the Ad Sense Revenue with you, and is not time-based. If a user clicks on an ad of your article’s page, then you’ll get 70% of the revenue that is generated by that click. Seekyt is younger than HubPages; it was launched in 2010. Seekyt has been improving since its launch, and it also comes in the Google Search Results. You might be seeing many results of Seekyt while searching various keywords on Google and other search engines. Though, Seekyt’s Alexa Rank is very low, it still can be a great earning website for you.

Alexa Rank: 50,923

3. InfoBarrel

InfoBarrel shares 75% revenue, and can increase up to 90% under certain circumstances. InfoBarrel is rated as a good site to earn money by writing articles. It has writers from all over the world. InfoBarrel has an easy interface. It was launched in 2008, and has a good reputation in the Internet. It also runs contests where winners are awarded with prizes.

Alexa Rank: 4,300

4. Bukisa

Bukisa shares 60% of the Ad Click Revenue generated from your articles. I see a lot of results of Bukisa on Searches in Google. Bukisa is a good site, and it is better than Xomba.

Alexa Rank: 7,208

5. Xomba

Xomba shares 100% of the revenue for 60% time of the day (similar to HubPages). It is also an article writing site. It also runs contest where users are rewarded with T-shirts, which I think is not as cool as InfoBarrel’s contest.

Alexa Rank: 22,602

These five sites can be great sources for earning money online. Try any one of these, and see your online earnings grow!

      I am retired and the extra income comes in handy. This is all excellent information and a great comparison of the different revenue sharing sites for writers.

      I live on a boat and writing is the best way for me to earn money (because I've tried selling my body for money and that just hasn't been successful at all!) so this was a really useful guide for me. Much thanks.

      @QualityContent, HubPages is the best article writing site, and also the best place to earn by writing articles! No doubt, InfoBarrel is super-cool as it conducts contests monthly! I hope you will do well on both of these sites!

      @nochance, I did as you said; I have put the Alexa Rank of all the websites so that the visitors can decide themselves which site can be more effective for making money online in terms of popularity! Also, I kept that at last as I thought many users would know about Alexa. Thanks for your comment and suggestion!

      I use this site and InfoBarrel, although I plan to add many more hubs here in the coming weeks.

      This is interesting. Though if you're going to use the Alexa rating system to accentuate your point about the sites you need to explain it earlier in the hub, or make a side bar about it. I kept reading because I wanted to know who Alexa was and why I cared about how she ranked the websites.

      I would recommend expanding this in the future.

      Otherwise this is useful. Thanks.
