    What are the best websites for earning residual income for writing articles?

    Do you have any idea about other websites like Hubpages.com, Helium.com, Squidoo.com, AssociatedContent.com, etc. to earn a residual income as a freelance writer?

    It seems that you've already found the best. I suggest working on those. Trust me, although it's good not to put all your eggs in one basket, you don't want to spread yourself too thin with programs that are sub-par.

    Triond and Infobarrel also offer residual income for freelance writers.

    I find that infobarrel has pretty bad CTRs because of their adsense placements and Squidoo has problems indexing sometimes. Hubpages is pretty much your best bet for making money by writing articles. Fast Indexing, great layout, and an active community, it certainly beats the pants of the other sites! :3

    All of the above are good places. I make more money from my Squidoo pages than Hubpages. I think this is because on Hubpages the reader actually has to click on an ad on your page to earn money. On Squidoo, the ad revenue from all 2million+ squidoo pages is split up and paid out to the top 85,000 or so lens pages on squidoo. So if you have a good page on squidoo, you get paid ad revenue even if no one clicks on ads on your particular page. However, if you have an article that has a high CTR you will make more money on Hubpages because you are getting all those clicks.
