Basically, generally, you submit your articles to one or all of these websites and wait for approval. Once approved, they will pay you immediately for your work. Some of these sites may require that you send them one or more sample writing work of yours so that they can evaluate your writing skills and accept you as a writer based on your skills.

You would not believe it that I found the website listed on page 30 or beyond down the search results pages. You might just need a bit of luck sometime. I wrote over a hundred articles for the site. The site stopped accepting submissions about a year ago and will not accept submissions further in the foreseeable future according to the webmaster.

Many writers actually prefer to write articles for these writing sites than sites that pay upfront for articles.

An article can generate money for ever or as long as it is published online with a website that pays through residual income model. Finding and joining the right and best residual income writing websites is the key to succeed in making money with your articles on these websites. Some of the best residual income or revenue sharing writing websites are listed below:
Your articles on these websites earn revenue usually in two ways. Firstly, your articles earn revenue from page views the articles receive when readers or visitors from around the world read the articles or just visit the web pages where the articles are located on. Secondly, they generate revenue from ad clicks the articles generate when the visitors click on any ad displayed alongside the articles published on these websites.
These sites then share the revue earned from your articles with you. Generally, they split the profits in favour of the writers. If you can put up a lot of high quality articles with these sites, you can start seeing some nice cash coming in your pocket every month over time.
