Getting Paid to Write on a Paid for Views Site

Not too long ago I signed up through a site that is pretty well known. The site - which just recently was taken over by Yahoo!, has been around for quite some time. That site - which many of you may recognize already - is Associated Content or now referred to as The Yahoo! Contributor Network . 

How does the site work?

Like most other sites out there where you can get paid to write all you need to do is create good quality original content. However, unlike a lot of other sites out there you do not have to base your content on high paying keywords - instead you simply need to find topics with steady search traffic.

What Can you Write On?

There are very few topics that can not be written on so basically it is an almost completely open platform for you and your knowledge. Like mentioned above though your best bet for optimal online writing and income generating potential through Associated content is to write on topics that are popular after all  views equal money!

How Much Will I Get Paid to Write?

Well there is unfortunately no clear cut answer to this question. Their basic pay scale on their Pay per view system will vary based on the amount of views that your content has received (not monthly but over the course of time). You start out making $1.50 for every 1000 view and then can increase to as high as $2.00 per 1000 views. You also receive little incentives for adding new articles - such as a % bonus on each new accepted submission once you hit a clout 7 (which means getting overall 50,001+ views on your content). Don't forget that is overall - not monthly views that open up that opportunity for you.

Upfront Pay and Exclusive
Some articles, reviews etc can be submitted for what is called an upfront pay. This can range anywhere $ wise but often falls between $3 and $15 upfront. This is only allowed on content that is submitted as exclusive to AC - meaning you can't edit it (without going through AC), remove it or anything. If you opt to list your content as exclusive and request upfront pay you will be notified via messaging with an upfront offer and you can choose whether or not to accept it or publish it under a different means. Exclusive content also opens up doors to getting your content published to other Yahoo sites where it will earn as well.

Submitting your online content as non-exclusive allows you to change, edit and remove the content any time you so choose. So if after 6 months it is just not performing as you'd like it you can delete it and place it on a site that allows content of this nature. You will not qualify for upfront pay however and only earn through PPV - which all content: exclusive and non exclusive will earn.

But I Prefer Ad Revenue Sites for my Passive Income! Should I still Write at AssociatedContent?

Absolutely. The benefit to having a site like this is it is a great place for all those articles, reviews, pictures and videos that just don't have what it takes to earn via an ad revenue share site. Take for example you were to do an article on a news topic that is highly searched but there is no real competition as far as advertisers go. What would you do- put it up on an advertising revenue share site and watch those $0's keep rolling in even though you are getting hundreds or thousands of views? No Way! That is the perfect type of article for a pay per view site.

What are you waiting for? It's 100% free to join - No Hassles, No Commitments only an additional place to add to your get paid to write arsenal.

More Great Revenue Share Bookmarking Sites

More Great Revenue Share Bookmarking Sites

Over the past few weeks I've stumbled upon - or more accurately put was referred to a few more bookmarking sites that allow you to make money off of a revenue share platform. It has not been that long but I am already seeing my bookmarks getting picked up in the search engines and have accrued over $5 - simply from bookmarking my own articles and content.

As with any site like these I would expect to see a boost in traffic and earnings fairly quickly and then typically they will die down a bit. Which is fine when you consider that you are earning an additional income online for promoting your content which in turn is getting a decently ranked backlink - which we know by now tells the search engines that your content is important and helps increase your chances of ranking higher in results.

Sign Up and Start Earning

On one of these sites I actually earned my first click within just a day or two of submission and that one click made me $1.07 - that was having a total of 5 articles bookmarked at that time. Seeing how on a typical low CPC article I can get 6 clicks and make around the same amount that is not so bad! I have found that so far when you bookmark your content to have the best earning opportunities you want to include a unique title and description - don't use the regular article title, instead use a new title and just slightly different keywords that support your main article topic and add a unique description, based on the keywords for both titles, of at least 100 to 150 words. Don't cut and paste your first paragraph -  if you want better results create a completely unique description.

Revenue sharing bookmarking site #1

InfoPirate - Check them out, submit some bookmarks (or even articles) and start earning right away! Bonus is that you use your own Google Adsense to earn so you can track just how well your bookmarks are preforming. (You can friend me there - my username is WritingMom)

Revenue Share Bookmarking Site #2

Seekyt - Sign up submit your bookmarks or articles and get recognized by the search engines. This site too is based on a revenue share that utilized your own Google Adsense so you can track what you earn and see just how well it is benefiting you. (You can friend me here as well under the same username: WritingMom)

How to Get Quality Backlinks - What to look for

Quality backlinks are not just random links to your website or content on some random website. Though not everything is known as far as what the search engines deem valuable one thing is for certain - link quality COUNTS!

Here we will go over some of the basics you need to consider before taking part in link exchanges or signing up with some backlink building service (more on these services below).

Quality backlinks to your website, content or blog should consist of the following:

>Placement on a well ranked site
>Linking site should contain quality information
>Linking website should contain information relevant to your sites niche/topic
>Website where your backlink is placed should contain original content and not content that is plagiarized, infringing copyrights or illegal in any other manner
>Your quality backlinks should never be placed on spam sites. Sites which contain more links and/or self promotion than actual content. *Rule of thumb is approximately 3 quality non-duped links per page of content.
> Keyword optimized anchor text used for links (optimal but not mandatory)
> Ideally for quality backlinks your back links should be placed on sites such as the .edu, .gov which hold high trust with search engines

A word of caution if you are debating trying to get quality backlinks through a link building service. There has been a lot of speculation online as to whether or not the search engines frown upon a large quantity of links going up in a short time or not. However, even if they do not "frown" upon it your chances of getting your site marked as "spam" increase.

If search engines such as Google see a good quantity of links to your site pop up in a day or even a week red flags will possibly be raised. To search engines the chances of those being quality backlinks based on informative information or simply a great website is highly unlikely and they are likely to view it as a scam or spam site.

So, do your homework. Know where your sites backlinks will be listed and make sure the service is designed to slowly build links to your site over a longer period of time rather that all at once.

My recommendation would be to do this job yourself or pay some to find sites that follow the criteria above that are willing to give you quality backlinks. This can be time consuming but in the long run quality can pay off big time.

A New Project with Old Content

After following the steps in The Niche Blogger program that I signed up with and the advice of other professional bloggers and site owners I am undertaking a fairly time consuming task in hopes of increasing my passive income revenue.

This project consists of interlinking related articles on the sites where I publish content. One of the my currently active writing sites that holds my largest quantity of content is Infobarrel. So what I will be doing is going through the topics and articles that I've written and adding contextual anchor links to related content.

So basically my articles on working from home (only one of many topics I write on) will now contain links to my other articles on the same site that are relevant to any online opportunity that stands to create a steady income stream whether that be a passive residual income or actual employee based jobs that offer at home positions.

What I am hoping to see from this is both increased acknowledgement to "often overlooked articles" from both reader traffic and search engines. This is not an overnight success as with anything that deals with search engines it may be weeks or months before I notice any significant increases in traffic and/or revenue.

Had I been doing this all along then the time would be rather minimal but since I am starting so late with so much content already published I've added a bit to my workload. So a suggestion I would like to pass on to those of you who create content for passive or residual income is to do this process as you publish content to limit both; the amount of work and the time it will take for search engines to find your content.

A Better Understanding of the Google Adwords Keyword Tool

Here is a video I ran across that may be of help to those of you out there who use Adwords for advertising or merely use the Google Adwords Keyword Tool for your keyword research for your online websites or articles.

As many of you know keywords are an important part of SEO which is crucial for many of those whose livelihood is based on their online income. If you work at home writing, run your own online business or anything related getting noticed by the search engines = traffic which = a bigger revenue opportunity.

Best-Reviewer Review

WOW~ Not happy at the moment with or Best-Reviewer. Though they both may still be beneficial for adding additional backlinks for your content, and I haven't decided if I will continue with them or not, the contributor appreciation is lacking - to say the least.

I wandered over to the Best-Reviewer site and clicked on the "forum" link (found at the top of the page). Boy, I wish I hadn't done that.

What I found was interactions from the creator of both sites blatantly saying that they don't care if their contributors are happy or not , pretty much they could care less. For a site that I am sure earns far more than the average contributor (judging off the way the site is monetized 1 ad for you 3 to 4 for them on each page of content) that is simply poor behavior.

I can't say at this point in time that I could recommend either one of these sites. I definitely think that it needs a complete makeover from the site design and layout right down to the owners attitude.

Building Backlinks: Examples


There has been much ado about whether or not you can or should use the introduction to your pages and/or articles when linking them on other sites. Though there does not appear to be any answer that Google is coming out and backing up the facts are that there are tons of well ranking sites who's intro's can be found in search on other sites linking to them. This does not appear to get you penalized as long as you are just using a sentence or two.

One thing you want to remember though is you are looking primarily for "do follow sites for backlinks". This means the site allows Google and other search engines to "crawl" their sites and sections where your backlinks are found.

Recommendations for better Backlinks:

1) Change the intro/first paragraph by about 30% but make sure to keep it on topic- think S.E.O (search engine optimization). This eliminates the worry of duplicate content and provides backlinks that Google and other search engines can use to verify that your site is about a specific topic.

2) Don't always use intro's or cut and pasted snippets from your site or articles. Instead try linking keywords as backlinks. If you are commenting or creating content on another site and the topic is related to other work/sites that you have then hyperlink the keywords.

Example can be seen in the second paragraph of this article (do follow sites for backlinks). Though the link won't take you to an article that I've written you should get an idea of what is meant by back linking keywords or relevant and related words. What I did there was create backlinks using keywords that are found in the linked article. You should notice that both the chosen article and keywords were all related to this post - therefore making it "relevant".

3) Never spam your links. Posting your url's on forums, comment sections or anywhere else is considered spam if: the subjects are unrelated, there is no helpful information accompanying your link, it is done in a rude manner (such as posted repeatedly or with negative commentary) or it specifically states that outside links etc are not allowed.

4) Link exchanges. A lot of people use link exchanges to try and build a reputation and ranking in the search engines. If you do this it can be beneficial but be careful. Relevance and content makes a big difference. Your automotive site is not going to gain positive recognition with backlinks from a site for recipes or holiday decorations. On the same line - if the site that links to you is spammy or looked down on from search engines this also will not help your ranking. So be careful and ensure you check out any site before you offer to do a link exchange. 

5) Building backlinks through additional content. Backlinks to your sites can be put in your profile on most writing sites and/or are allowed (based on content and quality) within the content of articles, reviews etc. 

So, consider throwing up some related articles on other sites that you can link back to your content. Some such sites include: Squidoo, Infobarrel, Hubpages, Xomba, RedGage, Best Reviewer,, Ezine, and Associated Content. 

The added bonus to doing this is that you can also get paid for the content that you write on nearly every one of the above sites. 

Don't hesitate to ask questions if this doesn't give you the answers that you were looking for. I am here to help in any way that I can.

New Site for Building Backlinks

Join with MyTwoCents as your referrer!

There is a new website online (see banner above) that looks to have some potential for site owners and content developers who are interested in building backlinks which in turn can boost their rankings in the search engines and help drive traffic to their websites.

The site is driven by user content on a broad range of topics. Outside of its 100% Adsense revenue share, one of the features that has peaked my interest is the fact that it allows you as a content creator to write up reviews or comparisons in a top 3 to 20 format and link each section to a relevant site.

This basically means that if you can write on topics that are relevant to your online sites or articles you can provide a backlink to help boost your sites importance in the search rankings. Granted rarely will one site alone take you to the top but if the content on the site remains primarily that of quality then it can help and while you wait for the benefits of a backlink to kick in you can find comfort knowing that you are also opening the possibility to bring is some additional ad revenue.

Though I am not 100% happy with the Best-Reviewer layout as it appears quite large and a bit cluttered with the ad sizes and placements - I'll definitely be giving it a try. I can't think of a reason not to!! Best of Luck and if you have any luck with the site or your own opinion to offer please stop in and let me know!

What is Blogging? Getting Started Making Money Online

If you have ever wondered "what is blogging" then chances are you've heard about it from a friend or perhaps seen it mentioned on an internet forum. Which is extremely likely if you've ever looked into ways to start making money online or work at home opportunities. (Something that we will discuss towards the end of this article)

A blog is actually a way to pass along stories, opinions, share information and even more importantly make money.

When blogging first came about it was more of a personal platform for individuals to share what they had read or learned online and eventually what you could compare to someone's own personal (yet these are obviously public) diary. They would share stories from their lives, work, kids relationship issues and so on and before you knew it people started dedicating blogs to information on very specific topics (a.k.a. niches).

That ingenious move (niche blogs) is probably what brought you to this blog as it introduced us to something so simple yet so appealing, It gave us the opportunity to share information that we are passionate about and  actually make money and for some of us that money actually pays the bills and then some.

Blogs give you the opportunity to cater your knowledge to individuals out there looking for that information and if you provide what they are looking for you in turn are creating a loyal following.

The more followers you get the more pumped you are about sharing content and the more kindly the search engines will look upon your site. And if you are actually asking yourself "what is blogging" then this is exactly what you want. Once you are recognized by the search engines you are now accessible to a far bigger base of individuals who are interested in your niche topics. Therefore, creating more opportunities to generate a healthy passive income.

If after reading this your interest is still peaked and you know a little more about what is blogging then lets talk about how to get to the point that it pays you to do it.

Merely creating a blog and throwing some content on the pages is not going to bring you a steady passive income stream. Though with some monetization you may see a few pennies here and there it takes more than that. It is not a difficult or extremely time consuming process but it is one that takes know how and requires certain things to be implemented to be successful and start bringing in real money.

Some of the things you will need to know are:

  • what pays (topics, keywords etc)
  • how to promote
  • Search engine optimization (S.E.O) 
  • how to keep a readers attention
  • how to make your blog stand out
  • how to monetize
  • the different ways to monetize properly
  • ad placement for optimal performance
  • and so on and so on

Luckily instead of spending the next year and a half reading through a bunch of half truths and mumbo jumbo searching for the real tricks to making money as a blogger you can do what I did and get it all in one place - courtesy of someone who was just like you and I and is now extremely successful.

What I am talking about is a site I stumbled upon not too long ago and that has already taught me more in less than a month than I learned in nearly two years of trying to figure it out on my own.

That would be The Niche Blogger site. It is a membership site that was created by Amy Bass. She started out like us, learned like us, now brings in thousands of dollars a month because of the tricks she's found to be successful and she shares that with you in a very clear step by step way

I'm not talking pages and pages of stuff to read through - I am talking about step by step video tutorials, screen shots, forums, articles, that walk you through everything from what is blogging, ad placement, niches that pay right down to creating and promoting your content. Where else can you find that? I can tell you in two years I never found that anywhere else.

If you are truly interested in staying home, working and making money online then I highly recommend the site. You won't be financially set over night but if you follow the steps, heed the advice and just do it you could find yourself in a position to eliminate your 9-5 job .

List My Five's User Support

If you read any of the previous postings on then you know I had a concern regarding their Google Advertising. Well, finally I emailed the sites support team and am delighted to tell you that I had a response back in less than 24hours.

The reply was clear, timely and very informative. Definitely another positive being laid on the side of this new and unique online revenue building site. I was very satisfied with the way that they handled what could have easily been considered a "harsh" inquiry.

If you are just now coming into things then I'll explain what ListMyFive (LM5) is. LM5 is a Top 5 site - meaning their content consists of  Top 5 lists for everything. The content is created by users - mostly a compilation of some serious freelance writer's, SAHM's and WAHM&D's. Once created and published the lists, like articles you may have written in the past, have the potential to bring in readers and in turn give the contributors a source of residual income.

Suggestion: The LM5 site is new - so if you choose to sign up and start creating lists then you will want to promote them. Submit them to your favorite social networks and social bookmarking sites!

Update on List My 5

I'm still just starting out on the ListMy5 site and before I continue I have to say that I do like this site. I have every intention of continuing to use it as a means for residual income and plan to see how things go.

So far on the site I've only created about 14 shorter lists spread out over the course of the past 3 weeks and have started to see some pennies trickling in (48 of them so far - screen shots below). Considering the newness of this site that's not too bad. It won't replace other online revenue streams but it looks to be on a path to being a great addition to the other means of online residual income that I use.

I've added screen shots below just to provide a bit of validity and so you can actually how spread out the lists I created actually were: Note I've included screen shots of my lists page because the overview shows 23 articles but 9 of those are drafts - leaving only 14 published. The green circle entails published - orange circle - not published.

Advertising -

I've noticed over the past 2 days that the ads I see on my own articles and those of fellow freelance writer's articles are all the same (I've included screen shots below). 3 ads for the same political candidate - this made me curious so I posted on the forums and found that others are not seeing the same ads as me - it appears that some of the ads that they are seeing are ones associated with things they've searched or things perhaps popular in their locations. Now I know that the political ads are not showing up based on my search history or on my article topics so I'm curious to find out just how these ads are being selected.

At this point in time I'm thinking that this means of advertising is not going to pay off. Hopefully they will make a change to this in the very near future, as in my personal opinion - having dealt with many sites where you earn off of advertising revenue - I've yet to seen ads pay consistently that are based on such criteria. Seriously, if my daughter searches out Barbie and I therefore see Barbie ads on an article I'm reading about health those are not going to offer me additional information on what I'm looking for nor are they going to grab my attention.

(Note the article screen shot below is not mine it is actually a great list contributed by BestMommy - here is a link to the original article: Friends to Have on List My 5 part 1 )

UPDATE:  I am happy to report that for today I am seeing new advertisements on the freelance lists. No longer just the 3 ads for the same thing. And a few of them even appear to be related to the actual article topic!! This for me is wonderful news! 

Update on previous Update: OOPS spoke too soon the unappealing trio is back!

Make Residual Income Creating Lists

There is a new site on the internet horizon that some freelance writers are saying is going to "go big". The site layout and set up has a strangely familiar feel for many who use to contribute to the, no longer existent, eHow WCP program.

All you have to do is merely create Top 5 lists. These can be anything from the the Top 5 ways to Improve your health, Top 5 Nostalgic Christmas Movies, Top 5 Places Kids Eat Free in Stillwater Oklahoma, Top 5 Reasons to Fly on the Airbus A380, Top 5 Work From Home Jobs etc etc - you get the point. And by creating and submitting these "lists" you can earn residual income.

As previously stated this work from home site is new and if you've been on the internet for any amount of time you know that it takes a while to gain recognition from search engines. This basically means don't sign up with high expectations just yet - but definitely sign up (some of us are already earning). The more quality contributors and contributions on the site the better and faster the search engine rankings will come.

If you are a freelance writer and are interested in another potential residual income site then you need to check out and sign up. It really is simple and if you can make a few extra bucks that's even better.

(Don't forget - just in case you missed it to check out The Niche Blogger Course)

Social Bookmarking Sites

Social Bookmarking sites are a great way to drive traffic to your content and help get it noticed. There are dozens of social networking or bookmarking sites that can be used and some of those you will find below.

Note: It is not always going to be beneficial to submit your content to sites such as these, few things you will want to pay attention to when choosing which websites will work best to drive traffic to your articles and content are: 1) what type of ranking does it have on the popular search engines? 2) how many people are "really" going to have the opportunity to see your submissions via the site? 3) how easy is the submission process? 4) Will it really allow you to promote your articles and other content?

The first site you will find is one that does not necessarily have a great ranking just yet but it is one of the ONLY social bookmarking sites that allows you to earn revenue off of submissions:

SheToldMe - Add  links to your content or website along with a short keyword rich description and earn 100% Adsense revenue off of your submissions. SheToldMe not only gives you the opportunity to create a beneficial backlink that can help drive traffic to your website or content but they also give you the opportunity to earn off your submissions and even pass along a bit of benefit for referring others to the site, too.

Redgage - Get paid to promote your articles, website content, video's, links, blog posts and more...

Digg - Another popular, well ranking and frequented social bookmarking site for your content. Submit an array of popular content that interests you - be sure it is a mixture of your content and others - and the more people Digg your submissions the kinder the likes of Google and other search engines will look upon you.

Twitter - Tweet your way to content success! Many freelance writers have found Twitter to be a successful way to share both their days and their content.

Google - Not a social bookmarking site but allows your information to be submitted directly to Google in hopes of getting it picked up and indexed faster on their search engine! Google can't be beat when it comes to popularity so getting Google to notice you will get you noticed by others too and help you to drive traffic to your website or other online content!

Ehow Vows to Make Things Right with their Freelance Writer's

      Starting Your Career As a Freelance Writer    The Freelance Writer's Bible: Your Guide to a Profitable Writing Career Within One Year    The ASJA Guide to Freelance Writing: A Professional Guide to the Business, for Nonfiction Writers of All Experience Levels

It has been a long grueling few months for many freelancers who write for If you have followed the on-going eHow gossip, that has appeared to spread like wild fire across the world wide web, then you have probably already heard the uproar surrounding the launch of the ehow UK site and the rapid decline in US writer's online earnings. 
The eHow's forums have been bogged down with threads surrounding this beta expansion and writer's have made their concerns known, and hard to ignore. For awhile it appeared that those concerns would be swept under the rug but just when things started to get hairy eHow appears to have stepped up and is making an attempt to right their wrong.

In a public appearance, made in the way of a video blog that was released today, to the eHow community - eHow has acknowledged that their members compensation did (as claimed by writers) suffer with the UK release and that they have intentions of making things right by compensating their dedicated freelance writer's. This, to many affected writer's, is a small victory and a step in the right direction for eHow and its reputation. With the exception of a few of the sites freelance writer's - who appear unappeasable - this acknowledgement and promise has started the much needed mending process.    

This move in the right direction will not replace the trust that has been lost or damaged in the process and freelance writer's will continue to be leery of future deception but the urge to write and earn has again been revived in many. Yes eHow - we are watching you ;-)

So, in conclusion, as a member and freelance writer, I'd like to send out a special thank you to eHow for finally listening and stepping up to the plate! I hope this truly brings an end to the frustration and is an acceptable fix for all involved.
