My Experience of Writing With Bubblews - Will I Get Paid?

Updated on February 25, 2014

Have you heard of Bubblews?

What is Bubblews?

Bubblews is an ad revenue sharing website that allows you to submit a short article or post, and share it with other people. People view, like/dislike or comment about what you submitted. You get paid based on the number of unique views, like/dislike or comment. You are able to redeem your payment after reaching the payout minimum of $50.

They share their 50/50 of the ad revenues that they get, which usually comes out to be about 1 cent per unique view, like/dislike and comment. It definitely seems to be way higher than most other writing websites such as Hubpages, Squidoo and InfoBarrel.

I was a little skeptical at first, because of the amount you can pull in just by being able to get views. I signed up and got $1 instantly. It was a sign up bonus.I wrote some short posts and got some likes and views. Viola, I made a few cents. That seemed really easy compared to writing for Hubpages.

I have seen some people getting paid for their work with their payment proof, however, I noticed some members spamming the website, posting about how they did not get paid. My alert alarm in my head started ringing and I had to figure it out for myself.

Following the Rules...

Apparently, when I signed up and look at "The Bank" section, I noticed the terms and rules in regards to using Bubblews. Here are the important rules and regulations you will have to follow in order to get paid:

  1. No posting of Pornography related stuff allowed
  2. English only submissions
  3. Do not take part in Traffic Exchange Programs to boost views
  4. Do not use any bots to manipulate your IP address
  5. Do not ask other Bubblew members to like your submissions, or ask them to connect back to you
  6. Content posted must be unique and not taken from other places(do not plagiarize)
  7. Do not submit less than 400 characters per post
  8. Do not submit more than 10 posts/articles per 24 hours or your account will risk being removed

People that complained about not getting paid probably broke one of the rules above and did not get paid.


The Pros and Cons

What I like about Bubblews:

  • No need for long posts, short and simple works fine
  • Not cluttered with too many Google ads
  • High payment per post if you can get lots of traffic
  • Excellent for back linking

What I do not like about Bubblews:

  • Slow server, down at least 10% of the time as I am writing this
  • Not enough moderators to ensure quality content
  • Hard to navigate how to find your posts and friends that you connected with
  • No video input to your posts


After 7 days of being with them...

After writing a post a day on Bubblews for roughly 10 minutes each day, I woke up a week later and checked my stats. I was surprised to see an extra $1.97(I excluded the free $1 from signing up) in the account. That is excellent for only 10 minutes of work each day. Who knows, perhaps I can get more views each day if I consistently write 1 post per day.

The picture on the side showed what I had after 7 days of posting.

Structure of Bubblews

Bubblews has a wide variety of sections that you can post on. The only drawback is that its categories doesn't have any sub-categories, unlike Hubpages. Sometimes, when you browse through the categories, you will see an irrelevant post.

You are also allowed to create your own tags, by adding a + in front of the word. So for a word that you would like to make it a tag, do this:




Put a "-" in between words to create tags with more than 1 word.

Some Observations

I also noticed you can get likes or dislikes easily when you first submit your post. Sometimes I really wonder if they ever read the posts. Although I do really like Bubblew's system, I think a lot of people are abusing the lack of moderation to post sub-par quality content to the website just to get views.

I do see the owner and moderators cracking down on these spammers and content stealing members. They have put up a couple of posts of members who are submitting stolen content, and asking them to either delete the submission or risk getting banned.

Would I recommend Bubblews?

As of right now, no, but I would suggest you try it out and use them for simple back linking. I am working on getting to the minimum payout and see if they would pay me. I would then report back. I am also going to try getting ranked in certain keywords using Bubblews, since they get indexed relatively quickly, sometimes as quick as 3 hours.

Update May 23rd 2013

These guys do pay. I just received my payment from them. Just make sure you follow the rules of their terms of service here to get paid.

      Bubblews isn't the only site that pays per view. and both pay writers for every unique view on every post. DTC has a 100 word minimum like Bubblews and Writedge has a 400 word minimum to attract more serious writers but both sites have 100% up time, a regular payday, and forum, email, and facebook support. We have plenty of mods checking for quality and no problem adding more if needed.

      Both sites also allow affiliate links so if you want to promote your own products you can (or Amazon, or Commission junction, or etsy, etc).

      Many of our writers came to us after they had entire accounts deleted so they wouldn't have to be paid among other reasons. If you're looking for an alternative to bubblews, I've got 2 :)

      I have been with bubblews for 5 months , I have posted over 860 postings, I have been paid as agreed every time, to date over $900, for doing what I like to do. WRITE, I have never had a problem. They gave me a warning for me promoting the novel I wrote, but all is fine.

      I love bubblews.

      Hi Hikapo. Thanks for summarizing the facts on Bubblews and making the fair comparison to HubPages. I've never heard of Bubblews before, so after reading your article I decided to research it for myself. It seems okay, but for now it makes more sense for me to stick to HubPages. I'm still pretty new to the whole blogging thing so the last issue I need is to worry about spamming and possibly not getting paid! Thanks again for sharing this info. Voted up!

      I would like to let you know that, some Bubblers (Bubblews members) did not get paid even they did not break the rules. This is because Bubblews maintained a way to pay writers, that is 'Pay One, Disappoint Four', that means in 500 people, they only pay 100 people, those who are high in popularity/connection, and the 400 people who has fewer popularity/connection, they don't pay them. This is because those who get paid, will write articles complimenting Bubblews of paying them, while their connections/viewers think that they violated some rules, resulting them not getting paid; while some others believe in Bubblew's 'trap', and starts to write articles continuously and think about their 'bright' future, and they won't give up even they are not getting paid. While those who get paid, they will keep writing and Bubblews will keep paying them, until they are less popular in the future. Pay-Per-View is too good to be true, but there is some legit websites that really pay for articles, and some pays even more than Bubblews. As an experienced writer, I encourage you to do more research before you work on!

      Hi question, does bubblews allow images on the posts? This one thing I am really frustrated as I would like to post tutorials on crafts and such... Anyway, your blog is really helpful although as updated, the minimum pay out is now $50 :). Thanks!

      Teckler is one, but their pay is way lower, and you can get good amounts of traffic if you share them in social platforms.

      My fiancé just signed up with them and now after reading this I am skeptical, but it seems like such a fun idea, I was considering doing it myself, do any of you have any advice on another good place with the same concept as bubblews? I am not neccasarily concerned about the pay I am looking for higher traffic to read the articles we post, I am curious about the feedback on what we submit.

      I was always confused on what they saw/see as a characters.. do they mean words or letters. I am guessing words, but why not just be clear as say 'words' :)

      I tried Bubblews, but my account kept disappearing. I emailed them about what I was trying to do and my concerns, but never received a reply.

      Best wishes to all who write there!

      I have had a very bad experience on the site. Two accounts, one was a second try, were summarily deleted. I can't imagine why, as I was very careful (especially on the second one to follow the rules... the stated ones, anyway).

      It proved to be a time sink for me. I have experimented the past two years with writing on this type of site ( first Squidoo and now Hubpages), and the Bubblews is the only one to leave a VERY bad taste which makes me feel I should simply resume my own blogging efforts.

      Now I am unsure whether I would want to be associated with a site that produces so much poor content and deletes better content ( I research, wrote completely original work and used all the best practices that I learned from here and Squidoo) and produced much more characters per page than the minimal 400.

      I worked at interacting with members more than here, and to have the account and all the work simply vaporize is more than discouraging. It is demoralizing.

      I have been there since August 1, 2013 and have just received my 3rd payout. Though I do not rush to get my $25.00 .Some of us miss payments because the site is experiencing many upgrades and that ALWAYS causes problem. People need to be very patient with them and people need to watch what theya re doing on the bubbles.

      To those who think they are a scam and will no pay, here is what you do.

      Have you written to You mus give them your URL of your account, the date that you sent in for a redeem and the amount of the redeem. Only send them one e-mail per redeem and expect to wait a week for an e-mail back. If you haven't seen their updates then you must read them on &BUBBLEWSSUPPORT! and &BUBBLEWSSUPPORT2

      Hi NateB11, thanks for the comment.

      I just found out today one of my posts got indexed in Google on the first page, however, it indexed the "flag as inappropriate" link and everyone that visited the page flagged it upon visiting. I just sent them a notice on this. I will see what happens. It is also my highest traffic post too.

      I signed up for Bubblews about a week and a half ago, because someone posted on the forum here on Hubpages about it. I haven't reached pay out yet, but I'm close, which is good for only a week and a half. I don't take it seriously though. I put way more time into my Hubs and my website that I'm working on. I'll throw up some thoughts on Bubblews, some pretty good ones but not web article material, or I'll post a summary of an article I read or write about a movie or food, post some links to articles and videos with it. But I've noticed, like you said, lots of schemers, scrapers, spammers, and hustlers. So, I don't even trust it for backlinks; I could be wrong. I do like the fact that you actually get paid for work. I'm going to keep going with it. Thanks for the info.

      All my friends on RedGage keep telling me to sign up for Bubblews, telling me they're making a lot more money there than anywhere else (with faster payouts than RG). However, I wasn't convinced, and I hardly have time to keep up with Hubs and RG. (=_=) So thank you for your thoughts and honest opinion. It helped!
