Censored at Wizzley
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.
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.

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.
