People love to read lists, and writers like to make lists. I make plenty of them here! It’s a win-win because they are easy to write, and they are also easy to read. Because lists are so popular, there are websites that only post lists. So for today’s post, I’ve create a list (go figure) of sites that pay you to make lists for them! Some of these sites pay very well for lists, and some only offer you ad revenue.
Newslines is a news site that will pay you for writing the news. This looks like it could be one of those writing “eggs” that are great for supplemental income because the posts you do are quick and easy. Before I go any further into the review, you should know that you do not need writing experience to join and it may be possible to get paid almost every day. Newslines is open worldwide, but you must be a native English speaker to write for the site.
The following is an interview between myself and Danielle McGaw of Writedge – a new revenue-share writing site:
What makes Writedge different than other rev-share writing sites?
I think the main thing that makes Writedge different from other revenue share sites is that Adsense is really the only thing we share. Every other opportunity to earn money is purely the writer’s. We allow our writers to use Amazon, Zazzle, AllPosters, Chitika, ShareaSale, and Commission Junction affiliate programs and anything they earn from those programs
Last Updated: Sunday, November 30, 2014Knoji is a website that you used to be known as Factoidz. When the site was called Factoidz, the only way to earn was through writing articles for revenue share. This has changed, and now there are several different things you can do to earn money with Knoji. When Factoidz […]
Last Updated: Wednesday, August 5, 2015Back when I first started blogging, I got really interested in earning passive income not just from my blog, but also from various revenue-sharing sites. I have actually written reviews of several of these on this blog that are likely now extremely outdated! But I loved the idea of writing […]
Last Updated: Tuesday, November 11, 2014Skyword is a website I’ve gotten interested in lately because I keep finding leads to post from them on my weekly job leads posts for different little writing programs. I had heard the name in passing before but honestly didn’t know much about them. After doing some digging, I’ve learned […]
What is List My 5? List My 5 is another revenue share writing site. This one is a bit different than several of the others – you can get paid for making top 5 lists! Almost everyone can think of their top 5 etc. etc. etc., so writing here shouldn’t be too challenging.
What is Firehow? Firehow is a revenue share writing site that is similar to the old Ehow – before writers had to submit content through Demand Media. Anyone can sign up to contribute, and all articles are how-to. How much does Firehow pay? Firehow pays based on revenue sharing, and the amount of pay is not guaranteed.
Examiner is a revenue share writing site with a “community” feel. They hire freelance writers to submit content on a variety of different topics for pages associated with the cities they live in. Examiner has been around since 2008, and currently has pages for hundreds of different cities in the U.S. and Canada. How much does Examiner pay?
Web Answers is a question/answer website very similar to Yahoo! Answers. The difference here is that you can get paid by Google Adsense for answering the questions users of the site post. A user posts a question, and people who are signed up to be “experts” on the site can answer them. The user then votes for the best answer of all the answers he receives. The person whose answer was voted best earns the Adsense royalties from the question. Adsense ads will display every time someone looks at the question, and the user who posted the answer will receive a portion of the earnings from clicks to the Adsense ads.
Experts123 is a site that has both articles and a question/answer section, similar to Yahoo! Answers. The difference is that you can get paid for answering questions on Experts123. You can also get paid for writing articles on Experts123. Topics cover absolutely everything. It’s a good place to go for both finding and submitting information. There is also an option to apply as an “expert” in a certain category. Details on this are slim, but I get the impression you can earn more money as an expert. You can earn money through both upfront pay and revenue share with Experts123.
HubPages is a little different from other residual pay writing sites. You make something called a “hub,” which can be about anything you want. Your hub is very customizable: you can add polls, links to products, news links, links to other hubs, pictures, slideshows, videos, and more. You can also arrange each of these items around on the page
Info Barrel is a fairly new article site. They’ve only been around for a little over a year, but they are becoming more popular by the day. Anyone can sign up to be a writer, and you can write on whatever topic you choose.
