Freelance bloggers - paid bloggers writing ideas, my blogs and freelance writing updates

This week I have been neglecting my freelance writing sites like Helium, in favour of working on my blogs. I have two main blogs I update a football streaming blog, and a mixed bag blog. I have been updating these two blogs over the last week with trending topics and have noticed a surge in my earnings both on google adsense and adsdaq. One day last week I managed to earn $61 in adsense and over $4 in adsdaq.

Ideas for bloggers to write about this week are:-
Vancouver Winter Olympics- schedule, live streaming sports, medal count, videos of performances
Champions League football- four mroe champions league games this week
BAFTA- BAFTAs are on tomorrow and should get some decent traffic

Other news on my freelance writing work is that I am still waiting on getting my first how to guide published on Helium, and having my first task approved on mahalo. I am trying to experiment with new things so not to have all my eggs in one basket and to also help increase my passive income.

How to earn a four figure income from writing year after year

If you are a keen freelance writer chances are you are doing it to make some extra cash. By extra cash I mean a four figure income. It is much easier than you think to earn a 4 figure income from writing year after year. So how do you go about earning thousands of dollars from writing each year. There are many ways you can earn thousands of dollars, a four figure income from freelance writing.

A four figure income from freelance writing the hard way!!

Earning a four figure income on Associated Content. If you are an associated content writer who does not get paid upfront payments you can earn thousands of dollars per year from your performance payments. However if you are a clout 1-6 then you need to get around 56000 page views per month to enable you to earn $84 per month and $1008 in one year. That is alot of pageviews and would require alot of writing. Even if you were a clout 10 you and received $2 per 1000 views, you would still require 42000 pageviews a month.

Some easier ways to earn a four figure income from writing

1) Earning a four figure income from Even if you do not enter a contest or sell a marketplace article you can still earn a four figure income from Helium easier than what you could at AC. It goes without saying that if you did win contests and sell marketplace articles you could make thousands easier. Anyway back to the average writer who cannot win a writing contest or sell an article. It is possible to earn thousands of dollars from Helium each year because Helium pay all their writers upfront payments if they have a writing star. Now say you have four writing stars this means you qualify for $2 per article and $3 for empty titles. By writing 400 articles in a year, 200 at $2 an article, and 200 at $3 an article you earn $1000 for upfront payments alone. 400 articles a year is around 33 articles a month. Now you would not need to write as much as this as you will be earning page view payments for your articles and you may sell an article through stock content. This is a much easier way to earn thousands of dollars year after year from freelance writing.

2) Mahalo.Com

Mahalo is a site I have just joined recently, and the earning potential is endless. You can earn from answering questions, tasks, managing pages and creating how to articles. Mahalo pays you a percentage of the adsense revenue from the pages you manage. They also pay you sometimes as much as $12 for creating a page. Many users are making thousands of dollars per month from this site. I will give updates after I have used to site for a while.

3) Google adsense- I will consider adsense again, as I have posted over and over again how much money I make from it. I do earn a four figure income from google adsense every year.

4) Freelance writing job sites such as odesk, guru, elance and getafreelancer

Earning a four figure income from writing is easier than you think. Get started now and earn thousands of dollars from freelance writing each year.

Easiest ways to increase daily google adsense revenue

If you use google adsense as a source of income and you are not happy that your google adsense revenue is increasing as much as you would like there are several things you can do. Increasing your daily google adsense revenue will take some work but will be worth it.

Firstly it makes sense you need to write more in order to increase your daily google adsense revenue. If you have a website or blog make sure you add blog posts on a daily basis. This means the search engines will index your posts and your blog post will appear in many updated feeds. If you work for a google adsense revenue sharing site the same applies. Taking webanswers as an example, try and answer a set number of questions each day and ask a set number too. After a month or so you should see an increase in your daily google adsense revenue.

Secondly write on some niche blogs. Blogs are free to create, all you have to do is keep them up to date. I have several niche blogs as well as a current trends blog. I try to post on each of these blogs several times a week in order to increase traffic and also to increase daily google adsense revenue. However it is hard to stay committed to several blogs. If I can sustain traffic and daily google adsense revenue to a particular blog I may hire a writer to update it for me

Another good way to increase your daily google adsense revenue is to write on current trends. Current trends are searched for by billions of people worldwide so if you write a good story with suitable keywords and a catchy title you could get lots of visitors. Thousands of visitors are a great way to increase daily google adsense revenue. I may try and do a weekly post suggesting some current hot trends for people to write on. I never have enough time to exploit all trends so I may as well share them.

Finally employ SEO. Many people find SEO difficult so I think I will try a do a post on how to use SEO for beginners some time soon. Basically SEO focuses on selecting a keyword. The keyword selected should be popular and with little competition. Therefore when you write a blog post with this keyword in the correct keyword density your blog should rank high in google search. However this depends on how many backlinks you have to your blog, the page rank of your blog, and the other competing sites page rank and backlinks for this particular keyword.

Friday, 5 February 2010 writing review- why everyone should write for Factoidz is yet another paying freelance writing site. Factoidz may be a new site but it is receiving a large amount of traffic on a daily basis, and traffic means money. Factoidz current alexa rank is 26762 with 360 links linking in. Factoidz also has a page rank of 4 meaning it ranks well in google search engine.

Factoidz is good for new writers and those starting out who want to experiment with SEO. The fact that the minimum payment is set low at $1. Factoidz pays into paypal. Why not give Factoidz a try. You can write about anything on factoidz, but the best articles are those that are focused on current trends such as Valentines day and the superbowl. You get paid a certain rate depending on whether your articles are rated low, medium or high quality, and after you write 20 articles you move on to the stage of staff writer. Staff writers are supposed to get higher rates than normal writers.

After joining factoidz you normally have to go through an approval process before you can start writing. This process involves submitting one of your previously published articles on another writing site and its URL.

However if you join Factoidz under me here you will not have to go through the approval process, instead you will be immediately approved as a writer.

January Earnings Report 2010

Okay the first month of 2010 was good to me, and I hope it is a sign of things to come. This time last year I was barely scraping $50 a month. Now I am making a few hundred dollars each and every month.

So where did my money come from in January
Income from blogs and revenue sharing - Google adsense $230.97
Adsdaq $1.64
Income from freelance writing - Helium $41.58, of which $22.58 was from pageviews. My highest pageview payment from Helium so far.

I am also expecting some squidoo earnings, which I will post around the 15th February.

Plans for this month are generally to keep writing on Helium and to increase my pageview earnings to $25. I am also wanting to gain more traffic to my blogs and to keep my google adsense income stable

So far my google adsense income has bought me £900 of premium savings bonds. So I am hoping to have £2000 of these bonds by the end of 2010.
