    Does anyone have any experience with examiner.com? 

    Good or bad?

      Good experience for me so far.  I am the local music examiner for Louisville, KY.

    I just started with them.  I have only one article up.  There are number of others here that write for them.

    their publishing tool seems to have more than its fair share of glitches.  if you can stand the penny, or less than, per page view...

    it's easy enough to whip out 300 words for an article - that's what they prefer.

    You might want to read Sunforged's article about online writing sites. He does recommend Examiner as being less about money and more about a professional portfolio. I agree, and that is how I approach it. I do write for them.

    You can actually make money with the examiner, but it also depends on your topic.  I write about arts and crafts and make a little, but I do not make as much as say a movie trends or popular trends examiner would make.  How much you are paid is based on number of page views and session lengths, and more popular topics have the potential  to monetize well.  Honestly, when I was writing for them each day I was earning pretty well, but that is not always something I can do.

    I'm earning a few cents a day and I only have 15 articles so far. I love the short format and I'm trying to avoid it sounding like a blog.

    By eliminating the word I it really helps with writing for the examiner.  Whenever I write a short article there I write mostly in the second or third person, which is their recommendation.

    A good trick to keep in mind as it is an impression based pay scale, is that traffic sources that dont necessarily convert for adsense (social bookmarking,twitter, your social profiles) are all potential earning methods

    Also, even if your topic is 11th century pigeons, you can always convert your titles to relate to popular trends.

    rare 11th century pigeon possibly sited at MJ's funeral!

    im sure you can be more clever than that...but when dealing with impression based pay, trends are necessary

    I like it. It is short and sweet and I usually get a pay out each month, although not this time as I haven't been able to write much in November.

    Their payout threshold is only $25 which is nice.

    Oh my god. only pennies a day? $25.00 a month? I would have to write 24 stories a month just to get enough to pay my rent at that rate. I'm curious. Does your story have to be accepted to get paid? or is it automatically published, and people just have to find it in order to read it?

    Or, can you publish the same story to several different sites to make this kind of small change? I need to make some serious money in the next couple months, or I am going to be out on the street begging for change!
