Censored at Wizzley

Updated on May 24, 2014

What is Wizzley

Wizzley is very similar to Hubpages, it is a revenue sharing site where you can write articles and get paid. The difference is that with Wizzley you get paid directly through Adsense clicks with a shared 50- 50% ratio. There are also more options for authors to use when it comes to ads and associate accounts.

Another big difference is Wizzley doesn't get nearly the same amount of traffic. Wizzley is ranked 32K in the US, and 56K in the world in Alexa ratings. Still, after 7 articles and a month of writing there I have gained 182 unique views. Unique views means a visitor basically, and you can calculate about half of those you have a chance to make money from.

After 8 Articles

Wizzley has only a 400 word requirement for their pages, but they do have a high quality standard for the writing itself. The look and feel of the site is quality and is user friendly. You can create a page and put modules next to the article of other articles you've written. You can also change the color of the background, which is nice.

Like I said above my last article was censored, so I have 7 articles that are on-line as of now. From these I haven't gained a cent from what I can tell. See it's difficult to tell if you've made any money there. When you add your Adsense account to Wizzley, it doesn't show up in the sites section on Adsense, like Hubpages does or any other site added to Adsense does. For instance, I have Webanswers, two blogs, and Hubpages showing me how many views I receive, but Wizzley is nowhere to be found.

Figuring out how to track your Adsense on Wizzley is a big hassle. I had to get an Analytics account to finally see views showing up, yet I still haven't been able to figure out how to see if any money was made. I can only guess from whether some amount showed up in my daily total that isn't accounted for, and this hasn't happened. So I'm guessing with fair certainty that I've made zero after 182 unique views and 7 articles on-line. Not a very good incentive to keep writing there.

In fact, if you read the seasoned writers there talking about making money through Wizzley, they kinda joke about how they haven't made any money, but still write there because of the community and so on. It sounds like there isn't many people making money there at all. So my basic analysis is that it's hard to make money there. Maybe if it was getting as good as traffic as Hubpages the Adsense thing would work to a certain degree, but getting only 50% is low.

It is a quality site liked by Google so I hear, so back-links there can mean something and you can sell Amazon and other associate products as well. So it's not a total loss, and I would say it's worth the effort if they didn't censor me.

Censorship

The censored article is called People Need Love and Hope, it will be in with the links at the bottom of this article. This was an article about people's need for salvation in Jesus Christ, and the degeneration of America since the 60's. I have written similar articles here at Hubpages and was never censored, to the credit of Hubpages.

Yet, Wizzley blocked this article and stated they don't want "preaching" on their site. I have a problem with this because I see occult articles there, and they are obviously OK with those viewpoints. I have to conclude Wizzley is owned by liberal people who aren't comfortable with true Christianity.

Although I understand they have the right to choose what kind of site they wish to run, I also have the right to not write there and tell others about my experience. I started off this article by telling the good points, so I'm not angry and malicious here.

Conclusion

Basically Wizzley is a quality site which will probably grow into an even better site. It's hard to make any money there from Ads, and people who preach Jesus in their articles may be censored, but other than this it's a worth while place to write for.

As for me, I don't think I will bother there anymore. I have three blogs now and Hubpages, and I don't really have time to work for free at a place where my beliefs are censored.

      I'm sorry you had problems with wizzley. I haven't made much there, but I do like it there. I'm not sure about your article that was banned. There are a few writers who write about witchcraft, but there are many, such as oligsinquito, who write about different aspects of their catholic faith. Perhaps the way it came across was not informative. I'm not sure I wish you would give wizzley another shot.

      Thanks for your comment Abbyfitz, it was a hard hitting article in ways about the degeneration of America since the 60's. I do respect their right to censor what articles they want to have there.

      I'm a little unusual in ways to the majority crowd, most people would think I'm way far out with what I believe on certain topics, it's been hard for me to find a revenue sharing site where they welcome me. That's why I love my blogs, and so far Hubpages has let me have my say.

      Too bad cause I have a lot of non-controversial topics I like to talk about as well, as you could see if look at my profile.

      I will keep my Wizzley account, maybe write one every once in a while about a family movie. Thanks for caring though, that means a lot.

      OK, so the link I had to the censored article wasn't working, sorry about that. I had to make a text link for some reason it wouldn't work otherwise. So the article is there now.

      Well anytime you find a double standard for freedom of speech you can bet it is perpetrated by liberals. Just look at all the recent Democrat scandals. In every case there are double standards in play. This administration uses double standards to pick and choose who they want to prosecute, what laws they want to enforce what is constitutional and what isn't. The media, well they are the author of the double standard when it comes to liberal vrs conservative, Democrat vrs Republican, gay verses straight, Christian vrs any other religion (or absence of religion) ... and on and on.

      But this Wizzley issue is par for the course, the course being persecution of Christians for their beliefs and nothing new for Jesus said in John 15:18-21

      “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you... If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you... because they do not know Him who sent Me."

      Thanks lowdown for sharing your persecution.

      Wizzley does not persecute Christians. There are a lot of Christian articles there, and most writers, including myself regularly reference our faith in our writings. I don't know why his article was rejected. Maybe it needed to be more informational. I don't know. But it is wrong for you to say they're persecuting Christians at wizzley.

      I'm not going to argue with you on the politics side of it. It has nothing to do with a writing site.

      Lowdown0, I did not mean to hijack your comments. I understand the problems you had and I appreciate your fairness in presenting both sides. I also commend you for not making blanket generalizations. That we as human beings are so apt to do.

      Oh really Abby? So I guess their logo

      "Become an author on Wizzley, Tell the world about your passions and expertise ..."

      is missing the caveat "...unless your passion is Christianity."

      Big difference between "referencing your faith" and sharing your passion which if Christianity, they don't want to hear about your passion, or to let you share it with others.

      Look up articles under Christianity at wizzley. You'll find plenty on the subject, by writers who are quite passionate.

      I agree that the liberal progressives are useful tools for the global elite implementing the totalitarian New World Order, of course I think the mainstream so called conservatives are compromised in the same manner. They both are double minded and self-serving.

      The problem is larger than simple preaching, it's a collective mainstream conditioning that has been established to askew the perspective of the type of Christian who truly believes in the Holy Bible with no compromise. That is the inspired version King James Version.

      With that said I think it's understandable that a site may not want to venture into this realm of so called conspiratorial unmasking the illusion, or simple hard preaching on the sins and reality of the consequences of those sins in America. A site such as Wizzley, isn't ready for such a so called radical concept as I brought which says the 60's was the beginning of the end of our civilization. They rather like most people would rather it be a liberation period, as the mainstream culture and society promote to our own detriment.

      I think the discussion is a good one, and I appreciate both your view points. I understand where Wizzley is coming from, as I once was blind to the dangers of sin, and wanted more to fit in with society which is natural. Because I've been shown the deeper reality of this world, I no longer can simply play the game and so it is I become a radical Christian to the watered down church and unbelievers alike. Yet, truly I simply believe in the Word of God and am sane as ever because of it.

      One thing I won't do is let the powers to be get to me to such a degree that I start to blame people whom God sent his Son to die for, but instead the demons they have allowed to reside in them.

      I think both of you are great writers and I will try and read your writings soon. God bless and thanks for commenting.

      Abby. I did search Christianity on Wizzley and contrary to what you stated I found very few articles about Christianity and although I'm not wasting time reading them it appears that none of them express the gospel, the real meaning of Christianity as did Lowdowno in his article. Why is that? Because obviously they would and have censored anything that truly expresses the passion of Christ. This would lead me to question if you even know what Christianity is really about, but then Wizzley won't allow one to express that, now would they.

      Think about it lowdowno - why would they not allow the expression of the gospel of Christ on Wizzley but allow articles that preach the occult? If anyone be offended by the Gospel no one is forcing them to read it now are they. No, the only reason is that they disagree with it (just like the Gay movement and liberals in general) is they don't believe in diversity or tolerance - if you say what they don't want to hear on they try in any way they can to silence you. By any definition that is persecution of a sort.

      I have to agree with you tsadjatko, it is persecution of a sort, a prelude to worse types of persecution as well.

      What I'm saying is it's just too bad for them, they are limiting themselves and choosing the wrong side. I pray they will stand for something more than worldliness in the end, Jesus is the answer, the absolute, God bless.

      Yeah well you can learn everything you want about the occult, how to meditate and basically specifics about any anti Christian philosophy on Wizzley but if they have it their way and you want to know how to be saved, what salvation is or anything specific about The Gospel of Jesus Christ, it doesn't exist, not on Wizzley.

      This is no different than the Mozilla co-founder CEO Brendan Eich, who came under fire for donating to a campaign to ban gay marriage in California and had to resign, removed for his "thoughts" about gay marriage or Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson who shared with us how gross and sinful he thinks it is for men to have sex with men and how happy black people were in the pre-civil-rights South. His remarks spawned a protest and a suspension.

      In Phil's case a counter-protest over the suspension, which A&E eventually lifted but with Wizzley they don't have to worry about counter protests - they don't want a Christian "audience", they prefer it doesn't exist. Blessed be the double standard they worship.

      Yeah, when people tell the truth against the establishment's conditioned mentality they are conditioning us to believe, they will be marginalized to the fullest extent their tentacles can reach. There's a great divide between those who understand the mainstream agenda is nefarious and those who don't. Group think dictates a fabricated reality where truth is not welcomed unless it validates the fabrication.

      I have to conclude as well that Wizzley would rather have New Agers and Occultist there, and exclude these "crazy" born-again Christians. Too bad, but that's their right to dictate what content they wish to have. And it's our right to decide to write there or not.

      I read the "Wizzley Quality Requirements and Restricted Topics" and it does not say anything remotely similar to what you were told:

      "Wizzley blocked this article and stated they don't want 'preaching' on their site."

      If I were you I would appeal to a supervisor and ask them to point out what part of the Wizzley Quality Requirements and Restricted Topics covers so called "preaching".

      My guess is that whoever moderated your page is a rogue moderator who is projecting his/her personal feelings upon your work as this has happened to me on hub pages and when I appealed to a supervisor their shenanigans were reversed, and on more than one occasion.

      Interesting, you may be right. Have to think about that, I'm sure they don't like the negative publicity. I'm limited, but do have some presence on-line. Thanks tsadjatko, a rogue moderator, I like that, it gives Wizzley more credit. They have been nice there overall. Have to think about this a bit. I'll let you know, brother, was watching your Don't have enough faith to be an Atheist hub videos last night, very well done.

      You know tsadjatko, I was just at Wizzley looking around, and the occult types of pages were just everywhere. The place is a bastion of occult, it has a definite New Age principality there, so I've decided to just say goodbye and not go back. Jesus is my filter brother, if he can't come, neither will I come. God bless.

      As the author of the 'occult' articles (you're looking at Wiccan ones, though I have recently done a couple on Druidry), let me help you out on finding the vast array of Christian categories:

      Catholicism: http://wizzley.com/articles/best/?cat=371&leve...

      Christianity: http://wizzley.com/articles/best/?cat=372&leve...

      Bible Study: http://wizzley.com/articles/best/?cat=373&leve...

      I've read your rejected article. I'm not an admin there, but I have been a writer for three years (and making money/attracting readers - 1400+ per day hits). I could see the issue with what you wrote.

      It pretty much told people straight out that Jesus is the only answer to all the world's perceived ills. It wasn't otherwise informative. My Pagan articles would also be rejected, if I did the same.

      In general terms, Christian articles aren't rejected, as those filling the categories above will provide testimony.

      Hey there Jo, thanks for your comment, yet I would be lying to say that Jesus wasn't the answer to all the world's problems. That's the trouble with real Christian faith for the world, is that it is the only truth. People can choose a lie, but that doesn't mean it will end well with them.

      John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

      Honestly any logical person will reason that there can only be one truth, one absolute, so what is it? If you say there can be billions, or trillions, infinity of truths, this goes against all reason and logic.

      2 plus 2 equals 4, therefor absolute. All of our society would spiral out of control without absolutes. People like you can choose to believe in relative truth, but that doesn't mean it makes any sense. There is one absolute, and that is Jesus Christ and the Bible. Wizzley can't handle this truth.

      Fine by me, I just moved on to places that can handle people having their own opinion that counters theirs, even if theirs is more popular with a sinful world gone from God and the Holy Bible.

      While I do not have access to the articles in dispute, I see you are arguing here that Christianity is the One True Faith because there may only be one One True Faith. I may be able debate this point, at the expense of relevance to your articles.

      Many different arguments could be made for why only one Religion out of all of them is (at it's core) true. Mostly, this is taken for granted by believers in any of the main religions, Islam, Hinduism etc. the same as Christians do. There is no appeal to relative vs. absolute truth, as you seem to put it, being made. The only thing necessary for this to be true is that (most) religions make claims that are mutually exclusive to those made in other religions. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disjoint_sets in logic / discreet mathematics.

      As an example, between Christianity and Islam, we could take two statements (a) The Bible is the inspired word of God or (b) The Qur'an is the inspired word of God. The Bible rules out the Qur'an being true, the Qur'an rules out the Bible being true. I know of no Christians who would agree with (b), they are not Muslims. I doubt you could find any Muslims who would agree with (a), they are not Christians. If they did, they wouldn't be Muslims. Christians (and the Bible) also claim that Jesus is the Lord and savior, the Messiah, that he rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion, that God is three beings in one, and that Jesus is part of that godhead. Muslims tend to see this as polytheism, and that Christians are sinning by turning a prophet into an idol, against the Ten Commandments.

      Or as an even more stark example, Judaism and Christianity. In one, the Messiah has come, and he was Jesus of Nazareth. In the other, the Messiah is yet to come, and Jesus of Nazareth was not him. Or an atheist could come along and say all three are wrong, and there is no god so there can be no messiah and no heaven or hell.

      All of the religions make substantial claims. None of them may be true independent of reality. None of them get to be true by pure mathematics. They are not null hypotheses that you can just assume when no evidence points to them. If you want to argue that Christianity in particular is the one which is correct, the burden of proof is on you to say / argue why that is true. As opposed to Islam being true, or Judaism being true, or Zoroastrianism being true, or Sikhism being true, or Taoism being true, or all of them being false and atheism being true.

      I'm not arguing whether Christianity is the one truth of our existence, I'm stating this is the truth. All the evidence points to this truth for those who love the truth.

      There can only be one truth, logically this makes sense, as 2 plus 2 equals 4 to anyone who is honest. If looked at holistically, the evidence is manifold to show that true born-again believers in Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible are indeed following the one and only truth. It's not religion, it's truth.

      Intelligence is not wisdom I'll just add as it seems you are relying on your high-minded thought to tantalize your ego. In fact, you say nothing at all and I can't discern any conviction in anything, therefor you believe in nothing except likely your own self being something better than others.

      TSAD 2 years ago from maybe (the guy or girl) next door

      Jo, I haven't read the rejected article but the problem with what you say "It pretty much told people straight out that Jesus is the only answer to all the world's perceived ills" is that Christianity says it, not LDO's opinion - it is right there in the Bible, Jesus said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6, let alone in many other places.

      So according to you they should reject any article that bases it's assertions on the Bible, therefore Christianity (unless of course the article is perverting Christianity).

    • profile image

      Michael P. 2 years ago

      Indeed, I didn't make my post to push any particular religious conviction. What I was arguing for was that the argument does need to be made (with say, the evidence that is manifold in favour of followers of Jesus Christ.) that it is correct. It sounded to me like you were just skipping that whole part of why what you say is true.

      I'll just add that the link to the article is right there at the bottom of this hub, and has been there. Just in case you wanted to read it and see that it is really actually very Biblical and basically spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.

      I think anyone would be being dishonest if they didn't admit there is a huge hypocrisy concerning liberals and their intolerance for Biblical Christianity. Wizzly exemplifies this hypocrisy well although so do most mainstream writing outlets on-line including Hubpages with varying degrees of communistic censorship.
