How to Earn Money Online At Seekyt with Viglink

A Wonderful Way to Earn Passive Income From Your Home
A Wonderful Way to Earn Passive Income From Your Home

We the online writers are always on the lookout for diversifying our income stream. After all this is a good idea to hang on a few sites (on an average it is widely believed that an online writer diversifies himself on at least three to four different sites).

This is a generalized view though and you are bound to disagree with me. However after writing around 80 hubs at hubpages, it was the right time to diversify myself and to look at other revenue sharing sites. Thus I joined Seekyt.com.

When I first read about its reviews online, I never heard anything bad about this site, there was no negative review which let me to have a look at the site. I wrote three posts which were first checked by the admin, approved and from there on my posts could be published without any check.

This was a great relief to me. Till now you can earn money at seekyt with amazon affiliate ads and by using either good adsense or chitika but now they have also introduced Viglink to help writers earn more.

This post will let you know about the recent changes introduced at seekyt for the benefit of writers, why it is high time to join this site as well as introduce you to the world of viglink.

What is Seekyt and Should You Write There?

Seekyt was launched in the year 2010 and by now boasts of having 5000+ writers. The good thing is that the revenue share is 70%. This implies that your ads from chitika or adsense will appear 70% of the time and seekyt’s ads will be shown 30%.

At present the site has undergone major revamping. At first we were greeted with the points system. Thus the bar with top 10 users and their points is shown on the front page of the website. Apart from that you will also be shown the popular posts of the week, month and all time popular. This is a good way to keep your competitive spirits up.

You will certainly like the neat and clean design of the website too. There is no clutter on the side bars and also no ads clutter to distract you or the readers. The prime focus of the website is on content and this is what is most loved by the seekyt members. The site has seen a rise in traffic over the last few months, thereby signifying that google too loves it.

Yet another good point is that you retain full control over your content. You have the right to publish, edit and delete content unlike other sites where the content once published becomes their property.

The other good point is the referral system. If any one joins the site with your referral then you stand to earn 25% of the adsense pageviews on each of the page the referral is creating. The community too seems to be growing at the site though of course not at the level as that of hubpages.

What Exactly is Viglink

Viglink is an affiliate marketing service which helps to automatically monetize links to as many as 30,000 retailers. So, you don’t have just amazon now rather as big names as walmart, sephora, drugstore, Walgreens, Nordstrom etc from where you can pick up any product and write about in your article. Thus, you have a wider choice now.

Why you would love viglink? The answer is pretty simple- you should have an account at viglink because by signing for them you have your doors opened to thousands of retailers without having the tension of creating your account on each of these.

For example, here at hubapges we have to create our account with amazon and also at ebay. But now with viglink all you need is one account and you can link to their products be it amazon, ebay, zazzle etc. Again, you would be getting a certain percentage of share when your product is sold. The commission however varies from one site to another. It can be 5%-12% or even as high as 25%-30%. In a way it is hassle free.

There are different tools available at viglink like the viglink insert and viglink anywhere. If you are allowing ‘viglink insert’ the site will automatically convert your existing links into monetized links while if you make use of ‘viglink anywhere’ then you can post content to twitter, facebook, google plus etc and even then you will earn money if someone buys anything. This is one of the best features. Apart from this, you can manually link the products too if you want to be specific.

A GOOD THING ABOUT VIGLINK: Well there is yet another good thing about viglink- if you have a blog of your own even then you can use their service to monetise their blog, the conditions would remain the same- you need to have an account, install viglink and have a paypal id. JOIN VIGLINK NOW

If You Still Don't Know, Its Time to Learn Affiliate Marketing

Seekyt Introduces Viglink for Its Writers

However, now the website has undergone a major revamping. The website has finally said goodbye to amazon and has opened its doors to VIGLINK. Yes, now you can earn money at seekyt with viglink.

This has been one of the major and biggest changes by now and that too keeping in view the revenue interests of its writers. I am pretty sure lots of people would be aware of this service especially those who are on WIZZLEY, since wizzley too allows viglink on its articles. The only negative aspect at wizzley is that you cannot link the pictures to viglink sites, rather only text links, this in my view is a major turndown.

How Does Viglink Help Us Earn Money At Seekyt

Each seekyt member can now create an account on viglink and their service is allowed in several countries unlike amazon which is banned in some countries. They pay via paypal and there is no minimum amount required to be paid. Thus if you have earned even $1 you will get it in your paypal. That’s pretty cool isn’t?

However the revenue would be shared between the site and the writers. Thus ads from viglink would be shown only a certain percentage of times and at other times it would be site’s viglink ads which will appear to the readers. So, is it worth giving a try?

Yes Definitely because what I liked more about seekyt is that you can even monetize a Picture there by inserting viglink manually.

Thus at a time when pictures have become more profitable thanks to pinterest it is good if someone clicks a pic on your post and reaches the product site and ultimately decides to buy that product, you earn!!

And yes with 30,000 retailers there is going to be no shortage of stuff for you. You have numerous categories (approximately 32) to choose from like- home improvement, consumer electronics, family and baby, food and drink etc.

Web Marketing for Beginnerrs

One more reason to join seekyt?

Well personally I have never seen a site administrator being as good as that of seekyt. He is not just friendly but highly professional. Just shoot him a mail anytime and he is just minutes away to read and respond.

He knows his work and shoulders his responsibility too with the same level. In case of any kind of issue facing you at seekyt you don’t have to wander here and there, rather you can just directly contact the admin.

So, are you thinking of giving seekyt a try to diversify your stream of online income, then you are most welcomed to be a part of one of the fastest growing revenue sharing websites. JOIN SEEKYT NOW It is high time to catch the rising popularity of the site.

Would Love to Meet Fellow Hubbers At Seekyt

As i said before i have already joined seekyt, though i haven't written much there till now, but after viglink definitely would be spending time there, so you can find me there with the same username - younghopes. Hope to meet you there too.

      I like the fact that viglink can be used anywhere as well as Seekyt. There are many opportunities for earning through affiliate ads; I've recently started trying AllPosters, and I've been using Amazon for awhile now. I joined Seekyt recently but couldn't post any articles because my computer's too old to handle their software. Admin there was very helpful about it, told me their software doesn't always work with old computers. Definitely very attentive admin there, he gets right on the forums and helps you out. Soon I will get a better computer and start writing on Seekyt, especially since there is this new earning opportunity you've pointed out. Thanks for sharing, very useful and informative.

      You have not mentioned what system it has adopted for paying the writers-whether 'pay per click' or something else. Also, what is their pay out limit?
