What's the best cost per word for selling articles online?
I have been trying to sell articles online, but I am not getting very many sales. I know some drop in January and February is normal, but the amount I am currently getting is less than I thought I would get. I'm wondering if my cost per word might be too high. This could help other people too.
Please note your currency. "5 cents per word" means little if I can't tell if it's Austrailian, Canadian, or US cents.
Because of specialization, I can occasionally earn up to 50 or 75 cents/word USD, especially for medical projects like text books, authority sites, grant funded research writing, and conference presentations. However, the well known writer Harlan Ellison complained about the too-low 5-cents/word rate back in 1973!
One site advertised a year or so ago for physicians and RNs to write articles at only 0.0035 cent/word USD. Article writing may become the poorest source of income in the future by those standards.
Since some Indian subcontinent writers and USA college students began accepting $1.00/1000 words (0.001 cent/word USD) payment for articles around the year 2000, the average rates per word for articles have declined overall.
I hear that there are sites paying above 5 cents/word USD for non-medical articles, but don't know what they are. Best of luck to you!
Sites like iwriter may pay 50 cents US for 500 words or a dollar per hundred words for assignments requiring higher quality.
Demand Media pays $15 US or more for 500 word articles with specific formatting, references and research. They pay a lot more if you have credentials, such as a doctor writing about medical topics or lawyer answering legal questions.

I took my 30-days page views count; divided it by 30 and further divided it by the number of published hubs. Thus I got a fair representation of my average number of visitors per day per hub. It comes to a whopping 1.6!...
