カテゴリ:Revenue Sharing Platforms


When Squidoo was in its prime numerous similar services were used just for linking the lenses which proved great money makers for many lensmasters which was just a jargon for authors writing for this popular platform. Some of these seasoned authors decided to create platforms with similar revenue- sharing concepts where the owners of platforms take care of everything technical (code, design, indexing, ...) and authors worried just about the content.

The deal was similar in all cases - owners and authors shared revenue approximately 50 : 50.

Why would anybody use such a service instead of simply opening his / her blog and keeping all the revenue for himself/herself?

There were several reasons for that.



    • The already mentioned technicalities could be overwhelming for one man only. Some people preferred to stay focused on the creative part of articles and decided to prefer earning approximately half of the revenue of three, four, or more articles instead of spending the same amount of time and energy on one article only.

    • Using such services by no means excludes the possibility of having your own blog or site. Versatility is one of the keys in cyberspace, and having several articles related to the same subject only helped to create some kind of authority hub that gave search engines more reasons to present all of the articles to a wider audience.

    • Services with more authors created more content, which built their authority much faster. If a mere mortal creates a blog, it takes a few years before it reaches the same level of authority as these services mostly achieve in a few weeks or months. More authors also means more options for collaborating. The same article can be written by two or more writers.

    • With an active community where likes and comments were encouraged and all possible questions solved at forums, search engines preferred such sites to simple blogs on WordPress or Blogspot.


My thoughts on Blogspot and WordPress:

So?

I collaborated with several services that grew as support to Squidoo or evolved from its ruins. Most of them died but all had interesting and educational stories.

I would like to share them with you starting with Wizzley.

Wizzley is still alive and well.

It has a community of writers who work on the platform which is built by ex-lensmasters.

It has a revenue-sharing system where you can use your own AdSense code, Amazon affiliate code, and Zazzle affiliate code. There were several attempts to add more revenue streams but I believe that's all at the moment. And, of course, you can add your own affiliate links if you don't exaggerate.





Writing on Wizzley is easy and your articles are indexed right after being published. This means even if you don't write there for earning you can use articles to help index your articles on other services or your own sites. Wizzley doesn't pay for their articles. Instead of that the affiliate codes are displayed randomly at 50 : 50 or 60 : 40 ratio, so you never know if the visitor who buys something after visiting your article is clicking your or owners' code.

Such a system prevents a
lot of problems with taxes (authors are by default from all over the world) and the small team behind Wizzley can focus on the technical part only. To discourage spammers all new authors have received articles before publishing. Published articles have all outgoing links marked by the notorious nofollow tag.

But when you are accepted (after five published and confirmed articles), your outgoing links are not marked with nofollow anymore.

There is also a relatively simple system of building an internal hierarchy. Each author has an authority which can rise to 100 points. These points have no real meaning.

Each article has also an authority that can rise up to 100 points. To achieve that the article should get a certain amount of likes and comments which stimulates authors to greater activity and collaboration which, in return results in better quality of articles and the platform.

Points of a specific article can be useful to climb up the internal 'ladders' of the specific topics. If, for instance, there are 50 articles about Snow White, articles with a higher amount of points will be displayed first and search engines will give them better chances to rank.

There are also some minor limitations about the word : affiliate links ratio which favorize more 'meaty' articles, not just mere shopping lists which were for some time very popular at Squidoo. To not worry about that criteria I decided to use the same matrix for all the articles in my Wizzley profile. All are written as a kind of Top 10 list what forces me to always write enough words and use enough graphics.

Here is

All in all, Wizzley is a very good site, and I hope it will stay active for many more years.
