Anyone writing on Wikinut?
Any experiences and thoughts for writing on this site, good and bad?
I have not written for the web site in question, but I did check out the TOU and payment scheme. They pay %50 of ad revenue, which is less than HubPages. They also mention that they are not currently certain to have accurate information concerning revenue share.
I have also never been to one of their pages before and since it has been online since 2009, that means that I doubt they rank very high in Google.
Because of these reasons, I would not choose to work with them.
I have articles on there for a couple of years and never earned anything.
I was on Wikinut, I wrote one article, had problems with the moderator because my article was published, it had errors that I saw once it was published, and the supposed moderator just sat back to receive his/her share without doing any moderating. I also had problems trying to get answers about the ownership of my writing, there seems to be a trick to this buried in the TOS. When I asked (more than once), not only did I get no answer, but the few pennies I had earned for my article , then disappeared. I have never got an answer from them since; then I tried to delete my article through Wikinut, discovered I couldn't, went back in and deleted every word, leaving empty pages. The article is still up. I have to make time and ask Google to delete it now. Also, the news letter mailing from them to me, disappeared when I started to ask these questions. I am not going back there!
Hi, I have an account here. Got it as fall back option. Written about 7 articles there. I keep meaning to do more there but never seem to want to move away from here as there is everything I need here.
I browsed a few articles today after someone recommended it, and the quality of writing is even worse than a lot of the bad stuff I've seen on HubPages. I can't remember ever having seen a Wikinut page when I've Googled something, so I don't think it ranks very high. Perhaps Google gave them a penalty for having low-quality content like they gave to HubPages. The TOU are murky as far as payment goes.

An editor reviewed this particular hub and decided that due to the fact that it has been extensively covered they could not get it on Toughnickel. To my surprise I found it doing well on the main site - HubPages.

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is...
