Make Money With Wizzley - Progress Of A Not So Newbie
I started making money online in 2007. As I publish this in 2012 its to explain how much I make on Wizzley and why I publish here.
I believe in transparency in Internet Marketing. Its an industry full of over-hyped income figures and unbelievable lifestyles. I aim to try to address this - and therefore I'm transparent about what I earn both here, at Wizzley.com, and elsewhere online.
I first published this page early in 2011 and I update it monthly with my publishing efforts and income.
I'm New To Wizzley - Not To Making Money Online!
This will be my 10th published article on this account. I've written it for two main reasons
- To let people know what sort of income you can earn from a site like Wizzley
- To keep me accountable as I want to publish 100 articles this month!
Now keeping it real - my results are probably not typical. Because I have two things going for me - a bit of knowledge and a lot of determination to take massive action in 2012!
Oddly its the massive action bit that most people seem to miss in my experience.

Lis And Making Money Online
I started trying to make a living online in 2007, in September of that year - I joined HubPages.com - made lots of mistakes, but eventually I was making over $600/month from Hubpages alone (I have other sites as well of course).
Unfortunately HubPages has gone bad for me and for many other writers there with crazy changes to their revenue share terms of service, I started looking for a new place to move some of my hubs over to.
What Do You Call An Article On Wizzley.com?
I keep on thinking of rude terms - but maybe its just my particular (Kiwi) accent!
Wizzley is Part of My Online Strategy - Not ALL of My Strategy.
I wrote a business plan for internet marketing for 2012 - Wizzley is a means to an end - not my entire plan to make money online!
I think a lot of beginners stay too long on revenue share sites like Wizzley. Don't get me wrong, in fact I'm delighted to have found a site I can recommend to beginners (as I used to recommend HubPages), its a much safer and easier place for many to start off than the Wild West of "get rich quick" scams.
But there comes a time, if you want to be serious about the income you earn online that you need to move on to your to owning your own on-line real estate i.e. you need your own hosting and websites!
The reason I still use websites like Wizzley as part of my business is that it provides several useful functions:
- its quick and easy to rank for new keywords;
- its a great place to try out a whole bunch of stuff and see what works;
- its a good place for backlinks to existing sites; - its a good place to funnel traffic to existing sites.
So not all of my articles here are designed to make money directly on this platform. That said, I have been pleasantly surprised to be making money already with minimal content.

Summary of Articles Published
I've categorized articles based on the main reason I wrote them initially. Articles can evolve, say I publish some articles on a new keyword, find it works, then I might build a site, and the article will become a source of backlinks as well. But for the sake of simplicity - I'll leave it in the category it started in!
Also some articles can do more than one thing - my backlink articles can still make me money! But I've categorised them under their main purpose.
In case you're wondering - this article is for traffic!

Articles for Trying Out New Keywords
I write a blog about making money online. It means that I keep on experimenting with what works and what does not.
There are dozens of tools which will claim to tell you how many people search for a keyword phrase, and how difficult it will be to rank for them.
They are all mis-leading to a greater or lesser agree. There are only two ways to actually find out not just how much traffic a term gets, but whether those people will buy.
- You can run an adwords campaign - I've never done it - I don't know how to nor do I have the funds to pay for it.
- Rank for the term. Wizzley is an easy place to get articles to rank on the front page of Google.
Articles for Keywords I Know Will Rank
Once I am ranking on page 1 for a term - even with my own website I will be lucky to get more than two listings. There are eight more to go…
Articles to Funnel Traffic
Sometimes I try to dazzle you with my brilliance and hope that you might click through to my websites, and sign up for a newsletter or even buy something.
Articles for Backlinks
Backlinks still work. Even if no one reads an article - there is still value in having a link from it back to my site. Honestly, trust me on this.
