I just heard about this site that pays you when you make articles. You get paid for views and you can also put there Google ads. It's free to join and you get paid by PayPal. So have anyone tried this or do you have any information about this site? I watched couple YouTube videos and searched on the net and it looks that it's legit and pretty easy way to make some money.

Hi, I have been a member of Triond over a year and I would personally not recommend you to join the site. My earnings from the site are dismally low and as per my opinion the rates they are paying per view for the articles are reducing drastically each month. I have seen a sharp decrease in my earnings. Although the payout is only 50 cents, I have a hard time reaching it each month. I am writing on other sites and faring better. I would recommend EC to you instead. It is a worthwhile site to write on. Good luck to you.

You are absolutely correct in your assessments my friend. It's been months since I've earned .50 cents in a single month.

Like a few others mentioned, Triond was a decent site sometime ago. I've been a member going on two years, and I've noticed many changes from when I first joined. It appears that the people running Triond honestly don't care anymore. There is no interaction between them and the writers like it once was. The earnings on there have gotten absolutely terrible. I'm only earning around .15 cents a month, and that's with a few thousand views. Most of the good writers there have left and gone to other writing platforms. I will admit that the site is legit when it comes to paying. However, I would suggest you to stay away from it. It's not worth the time or effort anymore. Good luck to you.

I agree on every point you have mentioned my friend.No one seems to be controlling the site. Even if they are there, their presence is inconspicuous!

I would honestly avoid Triond if I were you, but it's wise to do your own research. Good luck to you.

I agree with all the responses. Although triond is really paying and proven to be a legit site to earn, they give very low earnings so it's like you don't earn at all. And although the minimum payout rate is only .50 cents, It is very hard to reach even though you get many views per day. Not worth the effort.

It is just waste of time. I tried all most all money sharing sites.But no site appeared me worthy to do hard work. They just try to gain with our hard work.

Hi TheScupp, Although Triond is legitimate and not a scam but I would advise you not to join if you are looking to earn from your writing as the earning is extremely low, hardly worth the effort you need to put in. Don't be surprised if you hardly get any views for your articles. However, if you just want to practise and get some exposure and experience in publishing your articles then I guess that's fine.

Hi TheScupp, you are a few years too late to try Triond. It used to be one of the best sites for article writers. Some writers who joined four or five years ago could make up to a hundred dollars per article. Now the rate is like ten cents per article. Triond has become a rubbish dump for all the badly written articles. With your command of English, I suggest you try Helium. It is a much better site, with possibly of earning big money through the Marketplace where publishers post their request for unique content.
