HubPages – I started with HubPages on July 6, 2009 so September was my 3rd month submitting articles there. At the end of July (my first month) I had 40 published hubs and earned $8.31 for the month.
At the end of August (my second month) I had 76 published hubs and earned $27.28 for that month.
At the end of September (my third month) I now have 163 hubs. So I added 87 new hubs during the month of September!
September HubPages Income – $27.20 Adsense $2.96 EPN $13.22 Amazon = $43.38 Total
Infobarrel – I started writing infobarrels on Sept 8th so I didn’t even get a full month of submissions on it. During the partial month I had I submitted 99 articles. So what did that result for me?
September Infobarrel Earnings – $31.66 Adsense
I have got to say I am VERY impressed with my earnings here! I notice a much higher Adsense CTR on Infobarrel compared to Hubpages as well.
I put up 34 xomblurbs (only 50 words each) linking to some of my blog posts. I basically social bookmarked my blog posts there except I wrote 50 words of unique content for them instead of just copying the first paragraph of my blog posts.
It is pretty cool that I can earn money by promoting my own sites.
I also wrote one xombyte which is the same as submitting an article except they only need to be 150 words long. So after writing approximately 1500 words of content (equivalent of a little over four 350 word articles) I earned a surprising amount for the short time i’ve been there.
September Xomba Earnings – $6.14 Adsense
Now I am not a believer in just submitting articles there for the income, no I want to bring traffic and/or backlinks to my niche blogs. All of these serve that function for me and more. I love getting paid for article marketing!
I rarely submit any articles to EzineArticles anymore because I realize they are making a killing off the Adsense ads on my articles while I make nothing. I can now get traffic and money at the same time.
