Hi,

 

I am new here, but have been writing online for years.  I am both here and on Hubpages, here by choice nd Hubpages because Squidoo made a deal with them.  I also have a Zuava account that is being lost as the site goes down.

 

Question 1:  How is the money here compared with Hubpages, where it is very slow.  Squidoo went from 400,000 to 75,000 lenses before they shut down, so Hubpages got the better lenses, which, in my case was over a hundred.  Even with a number of new hibs I am only now, after well over a year, getting close to a payout.  Here, the use of our own affiliates indicates we get paid by reaching individual affiliate thresholds.  Is that correct?

 

Question 2:  Are the rules here stable?  I worked for weeks to make my transferred work conform at Hubpages, but when I add a sentence, or even a word, the edit process causes some hubs to go down,  They went through the filter, conformed to the rules, but suddenly things are changed.  Can we expect rules here to remain as they currently are, which works well for me?

 

Question 3:  On the Zazzle modules, I realize we spit the time of the affiliate money, but if the items are our own I assume we always get the royalty money.  Is that correct?

 

Thanks to any and all who respond.

Hi Henry,

This is a pretty stable site. They made good rules and are sticking to them.

Regarding Zazzle payments, if you look on Zazzle you see that you have referrals and royalty money. Only the referral money is subject to that 50-50 policy. If the product is your own and someone clicks when the page displays Wizzley's Zazzle ID, then they get the referral and you get the royalty.

Zazzle works fine for me here on Wizzley. Not much money, but it's trickling in and the curve gets steeper. I also sell through Amazon sometimes. If I get lucky, someone will be attracted by a product and buy many more.

The rules here hardly ever change. They've run a tight ship since day one and are very consistent and fair. 

I used to write at both Hubpages and Squidoo, when it was easier to make money online. I can't compare the old days to today. This is the only shared site that I write on now. I also have my own affiliate marketing sites.

It may become my only site soon.  Hubpages is acting ridiculous.  I wrote a new hub earlier this year, and when I added to it they suddenly had a problem.  It had 800+ words, and I went from 3 to 4 sales modules.  I went back to 3 sales items, which is where it was, and left the extra content, and again it went down.  If they cannot make a rule and follow it there is no point writing for them.  In other cases I added content and no sales module, and a fine article before I started was no longer acceptable.  They seem arbitrary.

I got rid of HP last winter, and started my own sites.  Sales are booming from my sites.

Gradually moving the rest of my content, from all platforms to my own sites.

I also wrote at Squidoo and made a monthly income, which was very nice.  But I never moved anything to HubPages because I had heard things that made me believe it was not going to work. 

I brought a few pages here to Wizzley, where I was already writing and promoting my Zazzle products.  As Mira said, your royalties are always yours.  It's the referral amounts that will be split here.  I don't get monthly payouts, but I have begun to make money through Amazon.

Wizzley is a well-run site and they will not allow garbage articles to fill up the space here.  Admin is quick to answer questions, and the forums are friendly and helpful.

What I personally love most about Wizzley is that they have a working platform that they do not change constantly!  TY Wizzley!  And it's very easy to write a page, which gets saved automatically for you.

I believe that the income will eventually improve.  In the meantime, it's a great online place to write.

Agree with Dusty Toes about Wizzley.  Avoiding HP as a Squid, was a smart move.

I prefer my own sites, since I do better in sales and traffic that way.

For those who don't want to bother with creating their own site, between the big platforms such as HP, Infobarrel, and Wizzley, I would say stick with Wizzley.
