Write Short Articles For Site Promotion and Profit

Have you ever noticed the abundance of information written on the internet? It seems that either there are far too many people with a lot of extra time on their hands, or they are getting paid handsomely for it. You may be amazed at how much money you can make for a short article. Many times the articles that make the most money, aren’t even written very well. That should give hope for the rest of us trying to make a couple extra bucks on the side.

I first stumbled onto the basics of article submission when I was beginning to learn how to promote my website. Promoting a website and writing content for profit are two very different things, yet you can do both at the same time if you play the game right. I started writing articles for EzineArticles.com because of their huge pagerank and the possibility that my article would be syndicated and distributed between multiple sites. This would help my website by adding some link juice to specific keywords. While I was writing articles for some different sites, I wrote an article for Ehow. I wrote the article in early June and by the end of June it had already earned be $1.50 for about 20 minutes of work. I was amazed and decided that if I could find similar sites, I could promote my website while making some extra cash on the side.

Thus I began my trek to find as many paid article submission sites as possible. What I found was impressive. There are dozens of paid article sites on the web that are worth writing for, some with very interesting payment structures. After writing for Ehow I just assumed that all sites would pay through a similar revenue sharing algorithm. The fact of the matter is that most sites either pay you on a dollar amount per 1000 views or split their AdSense earnings with you. This is a great way to help your AdSense account break the payment barrier every month.

Since these paid article submission sites are so huge, they usually have a good pagerank. This means that the articles you write will tend to rank fairly well in the search engine listings without too much promotion. So now, if you are promoting a website, you not only get a pagerank boost, but also traffic from the articles themselves.

It has been 6 months since I first wrote that article on Ehow and it has earned over $36 already. Since then I have written about 130 more articles for Ehow. In five months, well, you do the math.
