I already have 2 pages in, I want to publish a few more.
Yesterday it was “blue box” day. I was happy with my December earnings. That + Amazon and other affiliates = my best ever month ever. So now that the money has reached my Paypal account (I just checked) I am in the process of virtually spending it. Here’s how:
I will buy one gold coin for investment
I will set aside some money to either buy some lenses or content or have copy editing done for me
And I will put the remaining in bank for this summer trip to Canada.
I received my new Visa debit card from Redgage yesterday. With 50$ on it (minus the activation fees I have 47.50 remaining). Quite please with the speed. From withdrawal to card in hands it took about 2 weeks. The first time, my card took 2 months to arrived. they say they changed the card program, not sure what they meant because it’s still run by WRL. This card is good for 2 years, so I will be able to do plenty or reload on it…means I want to get busy uploading more content on Redgage! Although I am halfway to another withdrawal, I might wait until I have 75$ or 100$ before taking the money out this time.
I love it. I get backlinks for my sites and my photos earn me money. You can’t beat that.
I joined a new “squidoo-like” platform today, where you can turn your articles into revenues. Zujava was develop by Bill Nihill, a long time squidoo lensmaster (KiwisOutback), and one of his techie friend Justin Emond. This platform offers revenue sharing on every page that you publish (pages are called “leaf” there). The site is in beta, but still it looks good. I am sure bugs will happen, but the team seems to be reactive.
You do not need and Adsense account to earn there. Ad revenue is shared 50/50.
After 3 years of total inactivity on Hubpages, I finally published a first page there (make that two). Yes, really I did. For some reason I have never felt at home on Hubpages and was finding the platform a bit daunting. But for the “not put your eggs in the same basket” reason I decided to publish a couple of pages there. That will allow me to backlink some squidoo lenses at the same time. Both pages are about toys not made in China. I have many Squidoo pages on that topic, so lots of interlinking. I am a bit fed up with squidoo and all the cheating and gaming going on there.
Now, Hubpages. To tell the truth, publishing there is quite easy. Easier and much more user friendly than Squidoo. I didn’t get any warning about being “overly promotional” (I heard that Hubpages is rather strict on that and was afraid that linking to my own Squidoo stuff would send red signals). The pages look clean and professional.
As for backlinks I will have to be a little more active there because to get “do follow” links you need a profile score of 75 and individual hubs of 40 or more. Seems rather easy with unique content, a bit of traffic.
