The Best 5 Sites To Post Articles Online

Updated on January 27, 2014

I have a passion for writing and I know how hard it is to find a good place to post your article for a nice side income. I have spent countless hours and time searching on both Yahoo! And Google for the best sites on earth to post articles. Not to forget hours of finding more and more information in various sites such as HubPages and Squidoo to name a few.

One of the Best out there

My All Time Favorite Website

Drum roll please...

Here are my top 5 best places for you to earn some money online and there are links at the bottom for you. Click them and you will be few minutes away from earning more money!

1. HubPages

I always wonder how many hubbers are there in the world. Let me be frank over here. I love HubPages and I am in love with it! All you need to write and some creative ideas. You do not need to be a graphic specialist to make your hubs look nice as you are given options on how to decorate it. You can add links, photos, polls and even videos alongside with your article. At the same time, you can earn money with Google Adsense, Amazon and Kontera.

To join Hubpages, check it out here: Join HubPages for free now!

2. Triond

Triond is another great place to work with. You can post articles and you will earn money with both Google Adsense and Pay per View. There is no restriction on what you must write and you have total freedom. However, the usual stuffs are normal (consider nudity etc). According to my Google Adsense, HubPages and Triond are two of the most page impression monthly without fail.

3. RedGage

This site is one fun place where they will only issue you a debit card once you have completed certain amount of collection (e.g. USD 25). I love this site not because of its revenue generating but in fact, you can basically post all your links, blogs, photos, articles or anything you can think of. The best part is, everything being hit for a certain amount of time will generate revenue. This is indeed one of the best back links I ever countered.

4. Factoidz

This site is strict and they will ban you for no obvious reason or notification. It is an expert forum where you can earn revenue by Pay per View. The marking here is really strict and they do not want to have any duplicate content. From the revenue and paying point of view, they are great as they pay you the first few days of the month by PayPal.

An Expert Site

Factoidz for those who have deep desire in writing.

Last but not least...

5. Squidoo

I am not a fan of this site to be frank but I really love the outlook of the site. It is excellent and it is fun to play with. If you are a hubber, then you are going to have a little hard time trying to learn the styles. The basics of Squidoo are just alike HubPages.

    I love Squidoo, make decent money there. I also like Redgage and do very well with pictures there (not much with blog posts tho). People are more interested in photos overthere. I don't have much content here on HP so it's hard for me to say if it's worth my time yet.

    Hi Nicregi,

    Thanks for a great article. I am new to HubPages, and have just added my first article that I have previously hosted on my own site. I have noticed in the Terms in Conditions, that I am not allowed to post any articles that are posted anywhere else, so I can't have the same article on HubPages as well as Triond, or my own site.

    Do you have any suggestions for me around this? Should I focus on a single site, or use other sites? Does Triond/RedGage/other sites have similar restrictions?

    Many Thanks

    Nicregi, thanks for the sites you mentioned. I have tried Squidoo, wrote two lenses for it, and decided to stay off it because I have no html knowledge and it is hard to compete without it.

    Hubpages is far more user-friendly, though I don't think you can make as much here because it is not a commercial site at all. Still, it is a fun site and the hubbers are a great community.

    I must try Triond. If I do, I'll do it from your link, hoping you'll get a commission for it.

    Hi there all.

    Thank you for the comments.

    @TravelinAsia

    Squidoo is fine but since they have the tier payment, people start to go off. Tier payment means that only those in the tier (you got to be like top 100 or 1,000 or something) to earn payment. Outside of the tier and you get none. That is why people earning in Squidoo earn thousands and hundreds while those who don't earn, never earn a single cent :)

    Can I ask.. What about squidoo? It seems to be similar to hubpages, just not as good? Do you use them?

    I have noticed that Hubs are getting indexed faster on the same keywords. I know that it is kind of frustrating because the keywords are not competitive at all.

    Squidoo is a site for do marketing with colorful and some good tools.

    Hubpages is good place for sharing and make some money. Hubapges community is great group for learning also.

    Hi Isabellas.

    Thank you for your comment. Yes Squidoo has higher PR which is true but I feel it is all depends on your tagging etc. I tried a couple of time at Squidoo but HubPages seems to get into Google much faster and better compared to Squidoo. Maybe is just me but worth a try...and why not :)

  • Isabellas profile image

    Isabellas 7 years ago from Ohio

    I agree that Squidoo can be a little bit harder to use. However, for the same topics that I cover here my Squidoo lenses tend to do quite a bit better. That and the last time I checked unless I am wrong (which can happen) Squidoo had a higher PR.

    I use Triond and HubPages - they work in synergy! I find the latter perfect for backlinking my Triond articles (as long as it is two and only two per single domain)!

    Hi multimastery.

    Thank you for your comment. You are right that HubPages are great. It is the best I ever tried. I tried more than 15 sites until date.

    As for Squidoo, it is alike HubPages but due to the tier payment, I feel that is totally a turn down for me. I also having problem trying to get traffic to my lens at there.

    Factoidz is really strict. Due to lack of staff support, they opt not to inform you if you are being flagged or so. This is indeed a bad thing for Factoidz which is really making their popularity drop by the day. However, the traffic there is about the same with HubPages and the payment wise is good.

    Thank you for your input multimastery and thank you for your time reading my hub!

    Hi nicregi nice writing sites, I haven't heard about that factoid site, but if they ban people for no obvious reason I don't think I want to be a part of it. I hate sites that do that! Also, as far as Squidoo, I tried them but I just didn't like as much - nor did I get the same level of results that I get here on HubPages. I'd have to say HubPages is still my fav so far!
