She asked:

Hi Edie-How are you? I was wondering if you get paid to do Ehow and infobarrel? I'm looking to do something like that but I'm not sure if and how you get paid. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

So I said….

I do make money on ehow and infobarrel. I also make money on shetold me and Amazon MTurk. And with google and chitka adsene.

I wrote about Mturk in my blog, it's easy enough to do, but you can get burn out pretty fast with it. http://edieness.blogspot.com/2009/09/yesterday-i-was-reading-friend-of-mines.html

I make 75 percent of google adsense with info barrel, it is a writing site - very user friendly you can write various types of articles here: http://www.infobarrel.com/signup.php?ref_id=3334

Shetoldme is another site I make money on, it is kind of like digg, but it has google and chitka adsense - when someone clicks an ad on ur page you make money 100 percent of adsense - it is a super easy way to make a few bucks: http://shetoldme.com/referral/73686b2a

I haven’t actually wrote for Xomba, but I do use it to submit links to my articles again you need google adsense to make money- you can keep 50 percent of your adsense either write your own articles or submit backlinks (links to other your other articles) to make money. http://www.xomba.com/referral/777db01d

Here is a link to get a google adsense account: https://www.google.com/adsense/login/en_US/?destination=%2Fadsense%2Fhome

Here is a link to get chitika adsense: http://chitika.com/publishers.php?refid=edieness

Once you get google adsense, and you have set used your id on several sites you will want to know how to channel - which is breaking down the sites on google adsense to see where you earn your money. you have to make 100. dollars and then google will send u a check in the mail. So it is good to use adsense several places on the net. I wrote this up in my blog too(channeling) . http://edieness.blogspot.com/2009/09/channel-google-adsense.html

I make money off my blog with google adsense... when people click the ads I make money. I also have amazon affilate links on there. When some clicks one of the amazon links on my blog and buys it I get 4 percent of the sales. here is that link: https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/

ehow pays the fastest, but lately the site has been having some trouble and it makes me mad. I haven’t written for them in awhile, however i will not delete any of my articles because they still make money. Ehow likes to have things called sweeps and that is when they go into accounts and delete a ton of articles for various reasons - some make sense - some do not. I would leave ehow but i do make good money there so i stay and when they delete an article for some reason that doesn’t make sense like my 2009 black friday article for being outdated I put in on infobarrel. Yes you and i both know that BF 09 isn’t here yet... but. ... you have to sign up on Writer's Comp program and have a paypal account there: You can check out my profile here: http://www.ehow.com/myaccount/overview.html
and if u feel spunky - you can buy this book that teaches you how to make 1000. a month on ehow. I bought it and learned alot but I AM NOT making a grand a month - but many people are making 1000. to 1500. a month with ehow. here is the link to the book: https://www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?ii=121991&c=ib&aff=80956



  1. Hey! good post!Your profile link needs changed though: try clicking on "view public profile, then copy that web address and paste.

    I also notice a lot of people have a little trouble getting their Ehow widget to fit right in their blog template. An easy way to adjust the size is to edit the widget in the elements tab in blogger, then find "width" in the code and adjust it down by changing the number. On yours I would try changing the number to 268, save it, then see if it looks good and make more adjustments (up or down) that you need. I'm going to check out Xomba! thanks!
