but i have some questions left unanswered while researching this topic. 1.which is the most profitable article writing site? triond, squidoo, hubpages, infobarrel, or bukisa? are there more?^^ 2.shall i concentrate all my various topics on one site or should i use one site for each topic to vary things up? i am a little bit confused as you can read!o_O 3.and an other thing i want to know is if i can write in a different language (german) on those sites I have meantioned above?!?^_^ i remember seeing some german articles on hubpages...i don't remember exactly if it was really hubpages though _

I know quite a bit about this, as I am a writer on each one of those sites (except bukisa) and I am also the senior editor for a site which evaluates revenue-sharing programs and other ways to make money online. You will not be able to write in German in most of these sites; however, you can find a German revenue-sharing site or set one up yourself in WordPress or Blogger. There will be a free e-book coming out in the next week or so that will explain the various advantages and disadvantages of twenty-five different sites, so I will try to stay in touch to let you know when it is coming out. Also here is what I recommend: work up to 100-200 articles on one site, then switch and work up to 100-200 articles on the next site. Once you have done that interlink all those articles on your various topics, and then do another site for 100-200 articles, then go back and interlink those, and so on. By interlinking I mean you link from article A at InfoBarrel to article C at HubPages, then link that article to article Q at Squidoo, and so on. Where you start depends on how good you are at mastering complexity. HubPages and Squidoo are quite complex, but that is because they have so many options. InfoBarrel is easier because the options are fewer but you don't have the professional layout of HubPages or the money-making opportunities of Squidoo. Triond is basically a free-for-all and there is no way to know on which site your work will end up, so I use it primarily to link several related articles together. I know of at least thirty different sites for writing articles (not counting any ones in German). I use most of them and have plans for the others. I use the same username everywhere and have written on several sites about making money online.

@Classicalgeek, this is such a wonderful way to start up and some very good facts are here for even older writers who are trying to make their headway in writing, you just unleash a top most secret of writing sites who use revshare formulas for writers to earn. For me this by far would have being my BR to this discussion if i was who started it, but anyway Classicalgeek, lend me some time so maybe i could get a hand up from you into the topmost writers chart. A response from you would be nice and welcomed.

I write for both Hubpages and Squidoo. I like them both and earn well over $500 each month between the two. But it takes time and good content. I don't keep to just on niche. I write about everything and anything. Which is better? I honestly like them both. If you want, I have a link on my profile where a share a little bit about how I'm earning money with Hubpages and Squidoo. I have only seen English articles at both Hubpages and Squidoo so I'm not sure about writing in German. I hope this helps.

Hello, Jarrman. I am also a member of a writing article sites, one of which is a Triond. Triond only accepts non before published articles so those articles that you have already submitted in other websites can not be republished on Triond. You can write anything that interests you. And yes, Triond also accepts articles written in other languages. If you are interested to join other sites of which you can republish all your articles, just pm me so I can send you my referral link. Only if you want to.

hi jarrman..been writing in triond for the past week but honestly i didn't earn as much. probably because i haven't submitted much articles or the ones i wrote didn't attract so much attention. but never stop writing, keep that passion intact. goodluck.

thanks for the information! i have heared that you need to let your articles age like 3- 6 months or so to see some better results in the earnings! i guess you have to promote your articles very heavily to see good results after the first week^^ good luck to you too =)

I'll recommend you to go for a Helim.com Helium is probably the center of all quality articles. They pay probably the far most for the more acknowledgeable articles. Some articles get paid up to $75 up front depending on the quality of the article. This are few more websites which pay you for your article like eHow, Associated Content, etc. My only advice when writing for these article databases is to write true legitimate articles on topics that have that “I must share this with my friend” feel afterwards.

The allure about these pay-per-view articles is that they will pay indefinitely, but that also means you must be a superb writer with a knack for driving traffic if you want the articles to earn anything. Once they sit around for a week or two, they're shoved down to the bottom of the abyss, never to be seen from again. The only ones seeming to do well are the keyword-driven articles covering hot topics and, well, that's like inventing something useful and original - harder to do than what you might think. You'll be lucky to eventually make a couple bucks doing it this way, not to mention the fact that you'll be writing forever and a day just to build up some funds enough to say "hey, I'm actual 'working.'" If you want to write for money, the best way to go about it is to stop by some bidding sites and land an article rewriting job. These jobs are offered by individuals looking for quantity first, quality second. It's better to do this for money for a few reasons. One, you can make around $3 per every article instead of pennies. Two, it's much, much quicker, because you only have to rewrite an existing article originally and won't have to brainstorm for ideas or be quite the stickler for grammar and format. Three, you can get your foot in the door and eventually land higher-paying jobs. I started out a few years ago writing $3 articles and now make $20, $30 and even $50 for some articles. If I was still on those penny sites, I wouldn't have made as much in a year as I make in a week now, and I would have definitely had to work infinitely more to get there.

Hello Jarrman, As I experience myself, Brighthub.com is the best website you can earn some extra money. I've been participating in this website for about 6 months and getting enough money to live. It's just simple. First of all, you need to write an article as a sample and send it to Brighthub for review. After a while, an editor will come up to review your sample and eventually let you know whether or not your article is accepted. Once accepted, you might begin writing articles you'd like to write from health and wellness, management, games, pets, any reviews, pets, etc. However, if you are not accepted, don't be discouraged, you need to hone your English to be eligible in this website. I don't recommend you write for Triond. It just produces small amount of money as I did. I've submitted around 100 articles to Trionds since last year, but unfortunately I just got about 6 dolars. You might try to write in English as this language is widely spoken by many people worldwide, especially in this internet era. Hope it helps. Good luck.

Personally, I had opted to write only for private clients instead of these sites because the earning can be a bit slow. Expect maybe if you can highly optimize your articles, then maybe you can earn fast and a lot! But it is also a good option for anyone who do not intend to earn a specific amount of money in a given period of time. But for me, writing for a client seems to generate more profit, but then again there are pro's and con's to each option.

Personally I feel that all the websites that you've mentioned are profitable websites. They're all very well-known on the internet. They're not scam, fly-by-night operations. You can indeed make money with all of them. The key is not the website but YOU. How hard are you willing to work to be able to earn on these sites? You have to keep in mind that you won't get rich overnight. You might be able to live on the earnings from any of these websites like some of the big earners on all these websites. But it will take you years of hard work.

Hi I have just started with these two sites and though I must confess to you that though I am not earning an extraordinary amount, but surely making about 30-40 cents a day, besides, I have just started with these two sites so there is still long way to go. Add me if you are interested and PM me.

Hello, Jarrman, and welcome to MyLot. I used to write for several writing sites, but now I concentrate my efforts on Helium. Page view revenue is higher than other sites, and there is the opportunity to earn upfront payments, whatever your nationality. Some writing sites only offer upfront payments to residents of that country. Helium also has a great writer support network. If your writing is good, you will earn well at Helium.
