Recently, there are many site appear on the internet, which allow users to publish their own writings, and earn some royalties on it. Some of them are scams, but most of them are not. But among these pools of choices, how can you choose the most suitable one for you?
I have tried many of them, including Triond, Heliumn , Expertscolumns, Squidoo, and Wikinut. Currenly I found that Wikinut is the best.
Why you should write on Wikinut, but not the others writing site? Why wikinut is more outstanding than the others?
Advantages of using Wikinut
1. High Traffic Volume, people in Wikinut are active
In other writing sites, after you write an article and published, this is not the end. You still have a lot of things to do, including promoting the article to search engines, social media sites like twitter, etc. If you simply publish the article and do nothing afterward, your writings can hardly be found by others and therefore earn you now impressions and earnings.
However, in Wikinut, I found that the promotion of articles are very easy. I should say, i don’t need to do any promotion either. After the writings are approved and published, The articles can be shown on the ‘Featured articles’ page, and many other users can read it immediately. Even I do no promotions, there are still more than 1X impressions. If I submit a longer article, more than 5X impressions can be earned, with no promotion needed. If you refer to the picture attached, you can see that I just started publishing a few days, but already get a few hundred impressions!
2. Many Encouraging Comments
As mentioned before, there are lot of users visiting Wikinut everyday. When you publish an article, people read your writings actively and give you comments. In my experiences, the comments are very positive and always give you encouraging comments which keep you motivated. Also, these comments can also attract more and more users to read on your page!
3. Authors can earn by moderating articles
Different from other writing sites, besides of writing, authors can also act as a moderator and approve other’s writings. This can also earn you some money!
Since I haven’t been a moderator before, I can’t give much information here. Please supplement if you have such experiences!
4. Allow adding pics
Wikinut provides a user friendly interface for authors to publish their articles with outstanding pictures and images. This sounds normal, but trust me, some of the sites do not support images, such as Expertscolumn.
5. Report are simple and easy to understand
Refer to pics attached. It’s simple and that’s all you want to know, right?
6. Advantages on payment
Wikinut provide 3 kinds of payment advantages:
A. Low Threshold : 5 GBP, compare with other site, some of them need $20 or even $100!
B. Paying GBP : Most of the writing site give author royalties in USD, but Wikinut give you GBP! This can be much more money!
C. Support Paypal: Wikint pay authors through Paypal, which is the most convenient way currently. You don’t need to handle any physical cheques, and don’t need to wait for a long cheques mailing time.
1. Comparatively less royalty
Refer to the picture attached, you may found that averagely for 99 page views, I earned 0.004 GBP, which is about 0.00004 / impression. Compare with other site such as Expertscolumn, this is a bit less. However, as mentioned before, since Wikinut is giving you GBP instead of USD, the problem is not that big.
2. Can’t directly publish
All the published articles need to go through a moderation process, and can only be published to everyone after approval. However, being a moderator, you can earn money by approving other’s articles, so it is a good thing too.
1. Mobile app:
When you publish on Wikinut, in the writing page, you may add new sections for your articles. This is a very good feature for both authors and readers. However, this kind of editing user interface (UI) may not be supported on some of the mobile phone browsers, such as Opera Mini.
As a result, if authors log into there Wikinuts account and want to write some articles, they may not be able to add new section for them.
Currently there are no mobile applications, such as Android apps or IPhone apps, released by Wikinut. If there are specify mobile applications which can let authors to write articles with full Wikinut features, this must be a great improvement and much more authors will join Wikinut.
(I am a app developer for both Android and IPhone apps, if wikinut need help on this, I am willing to help! :D)
