Question for All Wizzlers

As we all know, the best articles end up on the front page. They are very well-written and interesting topics. But are they making money for the writers, or is it the more commercial articles that pay?

It's a good question Brenda. 

I'd like to write some more worthy articles if I knew how to generate revenue from them. I do write information articles, particular when my kids are interested in something, but I consider that to be a hobby really. At the moment, I mostly settle for useful because I only have limited time for writing, and I need to make a living (here and elsewhere) in a few hours a day.

From my experience it is normally the more commercial articles that end up generating an income - which you'd expect I guess. If you're targeting people who are looking to buy a specific product and you're providing what they're looking for then you'd expect to make some sales - even if only once in a blue moon. 

Most of my sales pages have very low traffic - if I could work out how to do a great sales page which gets high traffic then I'd be very happy :) (and so would Wizzley!) 

However, my top revenue generating article is actually an informational one which makes sales pretty much daily. So sometimes those types of articles can work well but I think it depends on the actual audience being targeted.

The more you write, the more you end up learning. I've definitely sussed that what works for me on one writing platform doesn't always translate well to another one in terms of sales.
