We all know that Fullofknowlege, Expertspages and Postanyarticle are established websites to make money writing articles with unprecedented CPM rates. Yes, the rate has surpassed $70 per thousand impressions in the past. But as they say, you should never put all your eggs in one basket. There are other websites that provides you an opportunity to make some money besides aforementioned websites. You’d be surprised to see as to how many great websites are there to help you make some money. I have researched on most of these websites and found them to be legit. Some of them pay upfront, while some of them have a revenue share system. But one thing is common; they all pay you in time. Each and every website that I would mention here is legit. Here is my list of 200 websites to make money writing articles –
1.) DemandStudios.com – They are one of the most known content mills. They buy your content for a upfront compensation with all the rights to your article. The payment would be somewhere around $15 to $60 depending on your piece. If you have what it takes to be a prolific writer, give it a go.
2.) Suite101.com – It’s one of the oldest website still around. There is no upfront payment here. They have a revenue share scheme in place. You will get a certain percentage of your earnings. As to what percentage, it’s still a mystery. The only drawback of writing here is that payment mechanism is not transparent. However, they pay everyone on time.
3.) Constant-content.com – There are many writers making a living out of this website, but they are all really experienced writers. I have had only 2 of my articles being approved over there in past 6 months. They have turned down most of my articles most of my articles for even the slightest of mistakes. Only apply if you are confident enough that you are not going to commit any sort of error.
4.) Buskia.com – Buskia has a revenue share system in place which is not very transparent to say the least. I have tried this site in the past, but found that they pay so little for your efforts. However, they are legit and pay you whenever you cash out.
5.) Yahoo! Voices – Yahoo Contributor Network pays you upfront for your articles after some time, but before that, you will have to prove your worth and be content with $2-$3 per 1000 impressions on your articles. The will hire you if you are from US and your English is sound.
6.) About.com – They offer highest upfront payments to their writers, but it’s one hell of a job to get hire in the first place. You can apply to become a guide or a writer if you are experienced.
7.) Break Studios – Once you apply and get accepted by them, you will be provided with different topics to write articles and you will have to submit them within the prescribed time. They will pay you through PayPal at the end of each month.
8.) WiseGEEK – They will also pay you upfront for any article you write and the PayPal fees with will covered by them. The fee is minimal anyway. You will be paid somewhere between $15- $20 per article.
9.) Associatedcontent.com – You can get accepted and submit anything you want. It can be a video or an article. You will be paid according to their revenue share system. In other words, your earnings depend on the traffic that your articles will get.
10.) ehow.com – Although, some people are saying that they have stopped paying now, there are a few still getting paid. I am not quite sure about it as I do not write for ehow. I will keep you updated on this as I find out more about it.
11.) eCopywriters – They pay upfront for your contributions, but they don’t have a lot of work like they proclaim. It may take some time to get paid, but you will get your payment sooner or later.
12.) Love to know – They hire freelancers from all over the world. Their pay rate is around $20 to $60 per article. You will be paid through PayPal at the end of every month.
13.) Seed – They are paying at the flat rate of $30 per 500 words. It might take some time to get your articles approved though – A week or two to be precise.
14.) QualityGal – You can earn upfront for writing at QalityGal. You get paid at different rates depending on your article. Payments are processed on a weekly basis through PayPal.
15.) Words of Worth - It is based on US accepting writers from all over the world. You will be paid at different rates, but the rates will be mentioned and you will have to agree to it before writing any word.
16.) Squidoo – It was found by Seth Godin on 2006. It pays you 60% of what you have earned and retains 40%. It has gotten a heavy battering from the Google in the recent past though. Therefore, it’s not as popular as it was once.
17.) HubPages – Hubpages is pretty similar to Squidoo in the revenue share system. You can post anything and get paid for it on a monthly basis. The minimum threshold is $50. It can take months before you cash put for the first time. While they are legit, I won’t recommend you to write for HubPages since it’s not worth the time anymore. It’s not getting as much traffic as it used to once upon a time.
18.) Helium – You have 3 options to earn money here. You can choose to participate in contests, get paid upfront or get paid by the revenue share system. It’s your choice.
19.) Triond – They use to be really popular, but have gone down the drain now. While they still pay on time, I am removing all my articles from that site. I am not going to be content with $.40 per thousand visits. It doesn't cut it.
20.) Xomba – You need to have Google AdSense for you to be able to earn from this website. They will take 40% of your earnings and you get to retain 60%. I don't see the point in writing for this website though. I would rather write on my blog than on Xomba. It’s a legit website though.
This was part 1 of the series. I am going to post part 2 soon where I will mention another 20 websites to make money writing articles. Have you had any experience with any of the aforementioned websites? Please share them below.
