Which is better in the long run - Triond or Bukisa?

I am fed up with searching more and more 'easy' ways of making money online. I am now trying to concentrate only on one paid to write website and I have two options before me - Triond and Bukisa. My Adsense account is banned so I can't use it on Triond. Still I am thinking of trying Triond first because it has got lots of positive reviews. I am aiming to write 1000 articles within a year. I want some opinions from you guys who are already working on the both sites. Thanks in advance :)

I've had a Triond account for a while...a few years. While I don't have many articles on there, I haven't even made 50 cents in the two+ years I had an account. Triond is far too cheap and I don't recommend it at all. I've never heard of this Bukisa, but it looks like a nice site. The layout is nice and the good thing about 'new' writing sites are that they tend to pay more when starting out to encourage content-makers to publish there, so I would recommend this site first. I personally prefer Associated Content though, and want to do the same thing that you do (make a set number of articles in a year) and make money through pageviews. I have about 10 articles on Associated Content and make $5-7 every month. It's a nice lazy way to make money. If you are extremely good at English and developing articles though, the best way to make money by writing is to join Constant Content, where you can set the prices for your articles. If they are worth it, you can easily sell your articles for between $10-45 or more.

Triond is not cheap, they pay nearly the same as Bukisa(from my calculations). You just need to write a bunch of articles, and promote them.

Roshanahmad, My little sister and I both write for Triond, and we both love it there. We've never had any problems with it, and their payments always arrive on time, on the 10th of the month. I haven't even written that many articles, around 20, and I make over a dollar a month for not doing anything on that site. If I really dedicated myself to it, I would be able to make a lot more. Triond sometimes offers contests and little rewards. Last month, it gave all of its users an extra 50 cents because of some holiday or something. It's a good site, very professional. I would strongly recommend working there. But if I were you, I would try working at a site called Ehow. It's like a real job, except all you do is write how-to's in a genre. To apply, you have to fill out an application and write a resume, but I hear the pay's really good, and people don't even have to try that hard. You may also want to try Associated Content, although they don't offer that many upfront payments anymore. Good luck! Annie

eHow/Demand Studios are very selective about who writes for pay through the Demand Studios site. eHow itself no longer pays. Associated Content is fairly decent for those who write about popular topics or are great at self promoting :)

I tried both Triond and Bukisa for a short time. In my experience, Triond is much difficult because people or viewers of your article must comment in order for you to have points. Bukisa is much easier because people will just read your article and you gain points from it even though they don't leave a comment. My account was suspended in Bukisa because I put my article link in an autosurf site which is not allowed in Bukisa and i didn't know it at first.

I personally like Associated Content and Triond very well. I am new to Triond so I am not sure of how I will do there,but I am hoping to make some decent money there. I do okay on AC and would do better if I could find time to write more articles. Once I am done here today,I will write there for awhile too.
