Wikinut ceases paying the users- by changing from revenue-share model program to free authors community



Just like what mylot decided to do some years back. Wikinut has stopped payments to the content creators as from 10th December 2015. Their plan is to remove the revenue share system and operate the site as a free authors community.

According to the latest statement e-mailed to all existing users, the site had reached the conclusion after running into trouble with their advertisers; that led to being left with only two options; either to completely shut down the site, or remove the revenue-sharing system.

The problem is said to have originated from the existence of the fraudsters on the site, who obviously gamed the system by use of botnets, driving fake traffic to their posts as well as fraudulently clicking the sponsors’ ads. There were also cases of plagiarism- where the limited efforts of the site moderators were subdued due to the workload at hand and lack of effective tools.

This might be the similar bad experience the Beermoneynation faced in their short existence online before officially announcing its shutdown. The same case to bubblews and other online revenue-sharing writing/publishing sites that became unsustainable after short period.

It is a worrying trend to the online writing world where the sites provide a revenue-share incentive to the users. It is also a challenge to such sites if they lack reliable tools to curb the violations.

Wikinut owners decided to go for plan B in order to continue existing even though the users are likely to flee the site, going for greener pastures elsewhere, since most were attracted to stay on the site due to payment incentive.

It is also one of the most reliable methods to free the site from the online fraudsters- who usually get attracted to any site that offers payment incentives to the users; hence they will have nothing to hold them around.

The current users are now allowed to opt among the 3 available options;
1. Continue publishing articles for free
2. To do nothing at all; in other words, just stop being active on wikinut and let the already published content to be used by site readers.
3. To leave wikinut for ever, by deleting your account profile and along with your content already published. This option is very definitely for anyone who wishes to remove the articles and publish them elsewhere.

What do you think is the possible future of wikinut? Will they resume paying like mylot or shut down like bubblews?



What happened to giga circle.com pay site?

Hopefully, the term giga circle is not new to most of the internet users in the blogging and micro-blogging world where the users or content creators earn a share of the revenues that the content they submit to paysites.

Just like blogjob, bubblews and other revenue-sharing sites the freelance workers earn income from; giga circle was one of the examples, accepting only original content.

I was introduced to giga circle while working on bubblews through a post by one of my friends who wished to share his experience about earning on other sites that he had membership with, besides bubblews.

As curious as any other freelance writer is when he discovers another online earning opportunity, I was eager to test the new site and see if it could be worth my time. As usual, I read the terms of use on the site and the FAQs as well as how the site worked.

After signing up and exploring the site for some time, I decided to submit my first post. The submission was successful and thus I had to share the post to several social sites so that my social friends would visit the link to the post, and boost the earnings.

Though I had already accumulated some earnings to the bank balance on the site, besides the sign up bonus, it looked like it could take long with hard work to reach the first payout, and so, I did not find giga circle worth my online working time.

Recently, I was trying to log in to the site just to see how everything was, and see if the site had improved to be worth the second try, but to my surprise, all that the browser could get in the search results was ‘giga circle’ with everything written in Chinese, even the images available were Chinese.

When I tried to refresh the search using different key words like content-sharing site but only to come up with similar results, I decided to conclude that the site might have been sold to a Chinese owner and can now be used by the Chinese or people who understand Chinese.

To my experience in working online, this is another revenue-sharing site which has just transformed into a different site besides the bindspace.com, teckler.com and mylot.com.

5 reasons why many blogjob users find it hard to write blog posts

In the short period that I have been the member on blogjob, I have come to learn several issues surrounding the low activity in submitting blogposts, the fact that must have prompted the admin to reduce the reward points in some of the sections about using the site.
Here are some of the points which I managed to gather, that seemed to derail my activity on blogjob as well;

Thinking about complex topics to share about: I used to think about complex things that I wished to create posts about and yet I could not come up with enough content about them, and thus ending up not making any progress at all.

Procrastinating: This is the main impeding factor to any blogger, always postponing to write a post about a certain topic, expecting to do so at a later date, ending up to pile up everything.

Using more time than necessary to interact: I personally had and still have this problem; I find myself devoting most my online time on blogjob interacting with other members on the site, motivated by the few points earned, when I should have used the same time to compose several posts for my blogjob sites.

Coming up with topics that you have no enough facts/information about- Of course many of the writers can agree with me that one will always get stuck in the middle of the sentence if he has limited information about the topic that he/she is addressing.

Self-dismissal- sometimes, we writers might have great content to blog about, but we refrain from posting about them in fear of what others/ readers will think about us.

I am learning to let go of the few above weaknesses and believe that if anyone can consider this information addressed in this post and respond positively about it, he/she is going to emerge as one of the greatest blogger both on blogjob and the internet world.

The new strategy to make a living by blogging has unlimited earning potential

If you happen to be interested in making a living by blogging while working from the comfort of your home without hassles and tussles, then be my guest as I take you through a short guide that will change the way you view blogging.

Now that the internet/ digital world has evolved to make the online working a reliable jobs option, blogging has not been left behind either even though some think that blogging has now been declared obsolete by the coming of micro blogging platforms that have come up with the revenue-sharing strategy to bring together the online writers who work both as the readers as well as the content creators and share a predetermined percentage of the earnings accrued through ads.

With the blog-sharing systems that some blogging gurus have devised, that exist on large and growing platforms such as blogjob for example, Sign up here, one can be able to earn a living by just posting unlimited number of posts per day depending on how quick the writer can create engaging posts that can meet the site rules. And be able to earn through the 50 points rewarded per post, which can be equated to $0.5 dollar per post, in case of the blogger is focusing on redeeming upon reaching 10000 points, besides the passively generated earnings in case the author has a monetized the sites.

Assuming that one is a full time blogger, you can also collect some more earnings based on the active participation on blogjob whereby, you can reply to others’ posts, forum discussions, updating the wall, uploading pictures as well as making new friends.
Just as the welcome page to blog job promises, it all depends on the activity the user is able to create and share quality posts as quickly as possible with the interest of the readers in his mind.
