Over 30 Online Writing Sites By Traffic

Updated on March 30, 2014

Online Writing


Everyone likes to make money and one of the ways to earn is to write online for many different writing sites. Writers who write online are always in search of new writing sites to which to submit their articles. Every writing site has its advantages and disadvantages so it is wise to join a few. It is also not good to put all your eggs in one basket as websites go down all the time or change their terms of service. No writer wants to reach the place where all his or her writings and their earnings go down the drain.

The following are a list of 31 online writing sites, most of which can be used to earn money. The list starts with sites that have the most traffic so the sites’ Alexa rank is the main consideration. However, the Google Pagerank is given first, followed by the Alexa rank and the date that the website was registered. Please note that the date that the site was registered is not necessarily the same date that the site was opened to the general online public. Where the statistics were not available at the time of writing “n/a” is inserted meaning “Not Available.”

As you see there are many fishes in the sea (or should I say on the "net.")

You will note that the sites with the most traffic also tend to have the highest Google Pagerank. Please note that and are different websites with different stipulations. Read the guidelines before joining. Additionally, Seekyt and Topicspotter are owned by the same person so they are very alike.

Closing thoughts

Naturally one would want to choose the sites with the best traffic, the best reputation, the best remuneration. Unfortunately the top sites do not always fall into all three categories at the same time. A site may give you 100% of the earnings but not have the traffic that a site offering 50-60% earnings has. A site like Blogger is much more highly rated than almost all the writing sites around and yet it may be much harder to get your work read there than with a lesser-ranked site that has a community base. Finally Triond is #17 on this list but articles are not published on Triond itself but on its sister sites like Socyberty, Webupon, Notecook etc which do not have as high a ranking. These are some of the different dynamics that need to be considered.

    Hi Dream ON. Sorry that I just saw your comment. I have not be here for quite a while. To answer your question, I started with Triond and Bukisa but concentrated on Triond for a few years. It was going good too as I got to learn the ropes. However, Triond is not much of an option right now as Google Ads are no longer showing on most of Triond's sites and Google seems to have de-indexed articles coming from any of Triond's sites. Articles do not usually show up in searches anymore. I am not sure if Bukisa is functioning much either. A horde of people have left both sites. The thing is to diversify as most sites disappear or become inefficient after a while. I recommend that you download SeoQuake as it will give you Alexa rankings of sites automatically. You can also look at which has rankings too. I cannot say whether HubPages has gone down or up as I have not been on HubPages often enough to gauge one month with another. If you can get traffic the best thing is to buy your own domain and hosting and put ads on it. This is what I plan to be in the near future. That way you get more of the proceeds and you will not be surprised by a site owner saying that they are closing down or no longer doing revenue sharing, or like a site that I know where you cannot delete your articles once you post them.

    There are a lot of choices .Which ones do you belong to and have you had any success making money with. Has Hubpages moved up or down in rank recently. How can you tell if sites have a good track history? Thank you for sharing.

    You're welcome DDE. Glad you are enjoying HubPages. One of the other sites we both used to write for has been down in the dumps for some time now.
