How to earn more money on Webanswers

I have been asked by many people how to succeed on webanswers or how to earn money on webanswers and now I have decided to help all you webanswers fans out by posting some tips on how I use webanswers to make me over $100 each month. Before I start I do not spend all day on webanswers and during this last month I would say I have spent under 10 hours either asking or answering questions on webanswers and still managed over $160. That equates to $16 an hour.

The best ways to make money on webanswers or indeed any revenue sharing site are the same.

1) Quality- If you are asking or answering a question make sure you are specific and incorporate true facts and detail.
2) Use popular high paying keywords, check out the adwords keyword tool for finding keywords and their estimated cpc. Pick a keyword that is popular and has a high click vale.
3) Quantity - the more answers and questions you post the bigger chance you have of gaining more revenue. I aim to answer at least 100 questions a month and ask at least 50.
4) Create backlinks to your rewarded answers and any questions you ask. By creating backlinks not only are you increasing the traffic to your content you are also helping to boost webanswers visibilty in the search engines as a whole. Webanswers is currently page rank 4, if it gets to 5 we will see another surge in earnings and traffic I am sure as answers will rank higher. There are many sites you can use to backlink to your content including xomba,snipsly, hubpages, squidoo, infobarrel and others.

By following these tips you should see your earnings grow month by month and you should make enough money from webanswers to get a google adsense check each month after answering as little as 500-1000 questions.

One high paying writing job which caught my eye was a tax blogger job. This blogger job will involve writing one article of around 750-1000 words per week, and will likely pay quite well due to the high paying niche. There are three high paying jobs going and if you know a lot about tax saving tips, the IRS and how to fit taxes into your investment strategy then you should definately apply. Unfortunately in order to get this high paying writing job you should probably possess a qualification in taxes and be working currently in that field.

If you are interested in credit cards and credit card debt then perhaps you may be interested in the second high paying writing job I am going to feature which is Credit / Personal Finance Blogger.

You can only apply for this high paying writing job if you reside in the USA or Canada.

How to get more pageviews to your articles

If you are a freelance writer or indeed blogger you will want to know how to get more pageviews. In the writing world more pageviews equals more money. Sites like Associated Content pay $1.50 for each 1000 page views, so if you can write 5 articles a day which get 1000 pageviews each you earn $7.50. If you struggle to get pageviews to your articles here are a few things you can do to get more.

1)Use SEO ;it has been said over and over again but it is true. If you use a popular keyword which has little direct competition then you have a good chance of featuring on the first page of google for this keyword. If this keyword is searched for 100 000times a month you have a great chance of getting thousands of page views. Of course if you are in the top position in google you are likely to get at least 10% of the search engine traffic, which is 10 000 views.

2)Write on popular topics. Search on yahoo buzz or google trends for the things making the headlines. These topics do tend to have a lot of competition, but if you write a quality article, with a catchy title, and promote you should see a soar in page views. It is only a few weeks away from Valentines Day so you can be sure in the next week or two Valentines will be a trending topic. Do not get left behind start writing about Valentines now.

3) Promote your articles. Add your articles to Digg, reddit, social marker and other social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and myspace, but be careful not to spam.

Getting more pageviews to your articles is easy with a bit of planning and forward thinking.

Squidoo Money- what I earned in Squidoo Royalties in January 2010

I have been on Squidoo for a while now but do not really create that many new lenses. Instead I have decided to focus on Hubpages and increase my google adsense income for the time being. In saying this I cannot knock Squidoo as lenses I created months ago are still earning me some money.

My squidoo earnings for November 2009, paid in January 2010 were $3.59. I have set my minimum squidoo payout at $1 so that I get a payment every month. I love squidoo earnings because they go into your paypal account. I love saving paypal funds for treats or to buy more premium savings bonds. Investment is the way to a richer future.

The breakdown of my squidoo earnings are as follows, first figure after brackets will represent Adsense and Glam Ad revenue, whereas second will be Infolinks :-

Olly Murs $3.06 (Tier 2 lens $2.49,$0.64)
Manchester United $0.15 (Tier 3 lens $0.12, $0.03)
Cristiano Ronaldo $0.15 (Tier 3 lens $0.12, $0.03
Neobux $0.15 (Tier 3 lens $0.12, $0.03)
Earning money from writing $0.03 (Tier 3 Infolinks only $0.03)
The best google adsense sharing sites $0.03 (Tier 3 Infolinks only $0.03)

If you were lucky enough to have a Tier 1 lens, that is a lens in the top 2000 you would have earned $14.63 in adsense and glam ad revenue and $3.77 for Infolinks, making a total of $18.40 for a Tier 1 lens.

The adsense revenue and infolinks revenue are increasing on a monthly basis meaning lensmasters are getting more squidoo money each month. How much did Squidoo pay you this month?

Fancy making a squidoo lens? Do you have a website or blog? Squidoo is a great way to build up backlinks to your website. Make a squidoo lens here

Snipsly Review -google adsense revenue sharing

Snipsly is a google adsense revenue sharing site which shares 80% of google adsense impressions with its users. Snipsly is a new site but already it has managed to obtain a pagerank of 2 and an Alexa Rank of under 60 000.

Creating a snipsly account is easy and after registering you are free to upload content via the wordpress platform. Each post should be at least 3 lines long and you can use snipsly to link to your online articles, blogs to help build pagerank and affiliate products. You can even add videos to your Snipsly posts and you can follow updates from Snipsly on Twitter.

My experience of Snipsly so far has been a good one. I have noticed a few dollars from the small number of posts I have done with Snipsly as well as traffic to several of my blogs, and squidoo lenses. In order to track your google adsense earnings from Snisply make sure you add to your google adsense channels.

Snipsly does not offer a referral scheme, but I think the 80% google adsense share is good enough. Who knows in a few years Snipsly may be ready to tackle Xomba!

Battle of freelance writing sites - Helium v triond v Associated Content

Which freelance writing site is best? Do you prefer Helium over Associated Content? Or is Triond your favourite? One of the ways I compare freelance writing sites is by how much money they pay.

Based on this fact I investigate and calculate my earnings at Helium, Associated Content and Triond. Associated Content and Triond have paid me between $10-$14 in 2009. Not very much at all. I did abandon my freelance writing at both these sites at a stage but I do have over 30 articles on each so would expect greater earnings. Now to Helium, where I had just over 100 articles in 2009. My Helium earnings were much greater than both AC and Triond combined last year as in 2009 I earned around $291. For some freelance writers this is buttons but since I abandoned Helium for a short time I am pleased.

My next step is to earn a four figure income in one year for my freelance writing at Helium. I will still continue with Triond simply because they now offer to pay through adsense on top of page view payments and referral income and occasionally I do get google adsense earnings from Triond.

Aims for this year are to get $50 in one months ad revenue from Helium as well as at least $1000 from upfronts, writing contests, marketplace and stock content. At the beginning of last year I was getting less than $8 dollars a month and now as of today I averaged 85 cents. My Helium balance for this month so far is $11.93, that is made up of $3 from December upfronts, and the other $8.93 is ad revenue.

Why every freelance writer should use twitter

Twitter is one of the best social networks out there and is extremely advantageous to a freelance writer for so many different reasons. Let me consider how twitter can help you as a freelance writer.

1) If you write an article for a paid to view site and you get paid for each pageview then you can benefit massively from twitter. However be cautious not to spam your links. It is best to write a small statement about your article and to enter in a keyword so that any followers that are interested in this keyword may read your article. The earning potential is unlimited. If you have 1000 followers interested in an article which pays 1 cent per pageview then you can have $10 just for posting one link. Gain more followers and write more articles and you could be earning tens of dollars daily.

2) By getting your freelance writing out there someone else may really like your article, and retweet it to their followers, thus increasing your earnings more, or even better may display a link to your article on their website. Going one step further you may even be offered a high paying freelance writing job if someone likes your style of writing. This may seem like a long shot but I have heard of several people getting writing gigs through twitter.

3) Similarly if your have a website and you share your website entries then someone may add your site to their site helping to increase your pagerank and traffic. This can only help your google adsense and affiliate sales. If you display a cpm network like adsdaq on your blog and you receive a good deal of US traffic then you will see some earnings too in your adsdaq account.

Remember do not spam twitter and add quality articles and postings that will appeal to your followers. If you think one of your followers would like something someone else has posted in theit twitter feed then retweet it. There is nothing better than helping a follower share their work and knowledge.

I have to apologise for lack of activity on this blog and lack of earnings updates. This is because things have not changed that much for me. I will update writing earnings soon.
