I've just finished writing an article comparing Wizzley, Hubpages and Squidoo and would appreciate any feedback. Since all three have a lot of small differences I'm sure I missed some. So feel free to point out any problems or additions. Thanks!

"Revenue Share - Revenue share isn't based on a percentage but on rank. The top 10,000 lenses get a few dollars each month but lenses that fall below that are often lucky to get a few cents. So even if you had dozens of clicks that month, without a high rank you're likely to get close to nothing."

The top 2,000 (Tier 1) get more than a few dollars. It was $30.11 last month.  Second tier was $5.12 last month. Those are figures with all ads turned on.

For sales it's a straight 50% of all sales through a module (not capsule).

And 100% of earnings from 3rd party affiliates.

Thanks Christene! Out of the three I know the least about Squidoo. Changes made. And what do you mean by third party affiliates? Click through link or something else?

Ya, any of our own affiliate links. Commission Junction, ShareaSale, LinkShare, PepperJam, Google Affiliates, All Posters, our own Amazon associate account... it's endless.

Hi Wry,

Good article.  I think we are calling them modules here too.  I think you underestimate the earning potential on Squidoo in your article.  Many people make a good income from third party affiliates, and there are also several lensmasters who make good money on lensrank payouts alone.

Thanks for your feedback. Smile I will change the wording a little I think. After lunch. Laughing

I agree about Squidoo generating "other" income. I write a majority of my Squidoo articles to showcase my own Zazzle and CafePress products, and it drives a great deal of traffic to my sites!

This is good to know, I have heard good things about squidoo. I haven't tried them yet. So far I have signed up with Seeykt, Expertcolumn and Wizzley.

Still trying to get the hang of how affiliates work so squidoo may take a while for me to get the hang of.

Lots to learn, thanks for the posts I will read more about it today.

I've never written on Squidoo because the payout system is so confusing. When you say third party affiliates, do you mean that I can include say any Shareasale merchant that I want? Then if a shopper clicks through I get all of the revenue 100% of the time?

Yes, Digby, you may place your Shareasale creatives in a Wizzley text module. 100% yours.

Wow Chefkeem. I was think of this for Squidoo. For some reason it never dawned on me that I could do that with Wizzley as well. You've opened up a whole new world. I'll be writing a lot more here. Thank you for letting me know.

Digby, basically (as far as I know) it's close to impossible to monitor/change any direct link you yourself place so there's no way for a site to insert their own affiliate code if yours links direct to an affiliate. So any site you write, where you use your own affiliate links, will earn you 100% of the income.

It's only when you use their special affiliate formats (amazon, adsense modules etc) that they have a code setup to insert their affiliate ID part of the time.

Hi Wry Lilt nice to meet you!

I understand the technology. I just didn't think it was allowed. In the Help Section Wizzley only discusses Amazon, Zazzle, ebay, and Adsense. They don't say we can incorporate our own afflinks. Some shared sites don't like it or severely limit it.
