InfoBarrel vs. eHow

More money and Better Treatment at InfoBarrel

Well Friends,

eHow is going down the drain. There is no better way to say it. The payment practices have always been questionable. I put up with it as long as I could place links to other stuff in the resource box of my articles and... until something better came a long.

Well, InfoBarrel has come along and it is definitely something better. Although InfoBarrel does not pay for page views, sources say that they are receiving an average payout of $10 -$15 per 1000 page views. The folks at InfoBarrel share 75- 90% of the Google ads and Chitika revenue with you! This means I can finally start to cash in on the real money my articles have been making for sites like eHow. And I know for a fact that eHow makes at least $10 per month on my highest earning articles. In 6 months I haven't earned a whole $10 on any of those.

With 29 (now 20 thanks to the Ehow's rude article sweeps) and 21,000 views. I would have earned at least $200 in the last 6 months instead of just $60. I'm talking about 20 articles folks, what would happen with 100? I'll tell you what, i could have earned over 5x mor money with 5x more articles. That's one thousand dollars in 6 months! How's that for incentive to keep writing?

My math is pretty general but, you get the idea.

AND most importantly, I get my dignity back, by deleting my own articles from eHow for a change. I'm tired of being treated like an idiot by the folks at eHow, Infobarrel must accept your first 10 articles before you can post freely and they don't take your articles down after they've been accepted!

After that all your articles are automatically accepted. That means a lot less junky articles to compete against yours. Oh and they also have less than 5000 writers right now. Unbelievable. Here's a chance to get in in the beginning.

They only accept articles that are not up on other sites so that means good by eHow articles.

Also best of all, Infobarrel treats writers with respect. They recognize that writers are the foundation of their business. Everything is out in the open. You even get paid by Google directly! So no Shady Sadie over there!

Check out InfoBarrel, you'll be glad you did. They are the best thing since sliced bread.

Sign up right away because it will take a couple of days to check out everything, add your Google Ads and Chitika accounts and get you first 10 articles approved. Then you will really get rolling.

There are a whole lot more advantages to switching. These are just a few. I'll write more and keep you updated on this blog.

This is no joke friends, you may have noticed that I haven't been around eHow for a few months- I was searching for a better way. Info Barrel is that better way. And yes, they beat the pants off of Hubpages too!

I'll be switching over completely in the next few days. Hope to see you there!

  1. Infobarrel is only good if you have a Google adsense account. Those are way too easily banned. Plus, you could put up the same 10 article or more on your own blog and NOT share any of the adsense money with Infobarrel. What a waste of time!

  2. Joyce,

    There are numerous benefits to posting your articles on Infobarrel over your own site.

    First of all, it is unlikely your site has the same strength in the search engines as Infobarrel.

    Aside from search engine visitors, Infobarrel is a very well established site that gets thousands of direct visitors a day who could come across your article, generating you money.

    Also, Infobarrel has experimented with their ad layout numerous times to optimize the click thru rate. So unless you bombard your site with hideous ads, chances are your site won't convert as well.
