So I joined helium about a week or two ago and then forgot all about it. Anyway I wrote about 4 articles there but I am still not sure I completely understand it. Is it the higher the ranking of your article the more money you get? Or am I just confused and don't understand anything about the website at all? I tried searching in the search bar here for a discussion to explain Helium because I know I have seen them before but I couldn't find any. So if you could either explain the website to me or at least give me the link to discussions that explain the website. So I can understand it more and know what to do there. I'd appreciate it.

When you write an article for helium and submit it, the article will be rated by other members and it will enter the rankings. I think that the article has to be in the top ten or top fifteen or something like that and then you get paid based on it staying in those rankings. You need to really be writing a lot of things to put on there to try and get the articles in the best rankings. I started off well but soon became fed up!

Thanks for explaining it to me. I am not that good with writing but I guess I am not doing so bad on the site. I only have about 6 articles on their. Most of them are in the ranking between 2-5. One was ranked number one but it didn't stay at number one for very long. I guess I will just see how well I do with the site, I am not counting on it for my money... I am just seeing and learning about the site. Seeing if I will be able to earn some money with it. Thanks again for explaining it.

I believe in helium. I left the site for well over a few months because I was too caught up in what everyone saying that the site is a scam and all that. But I would like to say that helium is as legit as it can be. The contests/marketplace thing are pretty new, and it just goes to show that people and publishers believe in helium, hence letting helium outsource for writers for their projects. The residual income thing is also extremely useful. I parked myself over there and I was shocked to see my articles soaring through and my earnings are getting high up. Patience is important and that's the best part about helium. You come back a year later, and the articles are still making money for you. It is something like a mini investment. Here is a url on this, perhaps you would like to read. Here it is: http://michysthoughts.blogspot.com/2008/08/heliumcom-in-depth-review-by-michelle-l.html . It features a very detailed writing of helium in the point of view of Michelle L Devon, and I think she's a very smart and intelligent woman. I have learned a lot from reading her entry here, and I just asked a mylot user a question on something that I've been wanting to know about helium, and suddenly when I was reading Michelle's entry, the answer was there. That's nice. Hope this helps. Take care. c;)

Thank you. I will read the article a little bit later. About a week ago I wasn't on there for a while and I signed in one day and I had earned a little bit of money from the articles. I think that is the best part about it like you said. I will keep working on there and see how it goes. Thanks again.

i joined helium 2 months ago but i never work on it because i am instructed to make an articles with an average of 2000 words. i am not good in English so it's difficult to composed an article with at least 2000 words. i am not a good writer, I'm here to develop my English.
