The only way to make money there is to have a gigantic network and post 10 "articles" every day while being very social. If you can handle all of that, then you can make $500+ per month on it. But it takes a lot of work.
I've read about many people not receiving their money on time, but eventually they all received it. It just took a long time. If you are from the developing world, expect long waits. And it seems like 3/4 on there are from the developing world (which will eventually lead to lower payouts since advertisers don't pay as much for their views).
