20 Cents For Each Article I Publish On InfoBarrel

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 2 14

I just returned from a camping trip to beautiful Stanley Idaho. We stayed at the Sockeye campground and had a lot of fun but one of the things I did not take was my laptop. At the Redfish Lodge they offer WIFI as well as a few other local cafes. I regretted not taking my laptop. I hit a mental zone and my mind was churning with articles that I wanted to start pumping out for InfoBarrel.

Now that I am writing articles full time I want to spend some time each day writing articles for InfoBarrel. The upfront payment is what has allowed me to quit my 9-5 job but InfoBarrel and the residual income opportunity is what will help me to thrive.

Let's crunch some numbers. Let us say that I am averaging .20 cents per article each month. With my current folio of 330 articles I can expect to make about $66.00 each month. This number is pretty accurate as you can see by some of my monthly earnings reports. Some months I earn more per article but on average we can fairly say I earn about .20 cents for each article.

20 cents for each article I publish on InfoBarrel is not a lot but you need to keep in mind that article will earn about 20 cents every month for as long as it is on InfoBarrel.

It takes about 500 of my NON-SEO articles to earn about $100 each month with InfoBarrel. If I can simply average, in addition to my upfront payment writing, 15 articles each day for a few months then I can easily boost my Adsense income from InfoBarrel.

Writing 15 articles per day for InfoBarrel would come out to 450 articles a month if it was a 30 day month. This would boost my monthly earnings by an additional $90 each month. If I kept this level of writing up for the remaining 4 months of this year then I would have about 2,130 articles published on InfoBarrel. This would earn me about $426.00 each and every month with no additional work on my part.

These figures are extremely low compared to what they may be. When I publish a handful of articles at one time as opposed to one a day I see my average CPM jump high once the initial Google Index begins to show the new articles on the Search engine results. By writing a bunch of articles over the last few months of this year and adding an additional 1,000 or more articles then I am bound to get more Cherry Articles which will earn me on a per article average.

I am excited to see what my earnings will be when I finish this year out with InfoBarrel. I may not be able to publish in all likelihood an additional 1,800 articles but I will be able to reach my goal of having 1,500 articles published on InfoBarrel by the end of the year.

If every active member of InfoBarrel could simply stay productive enough until they reached 500 or more articles then our earnings as a group would be tremoundous.

Don't forget to spend time on doing keyword research. Writing articles that solve a particular problem are also effective.

This might sound a bit 'shady' to others, but this idea has been generally welcomed by alot of members here.....

For awhile, as part of my research, I would query eHow's search function for a random word. I would then look to see what kind of article results showed up, and I would look at both the quality and quantity of 'stars' left.....while this can be artificially skewed by people who just gave 1 star ratings out of spite, it does give at least some kind of indicator as to how much the article is trafficked and interacted with.

Knowing that they had SEO guys working on the content of their site, I figured that certain articles were targeted because they would be valuable in the search engines. (I would then run the keywords through Market Samurai to see the composition and strength of other competing sites and articles, but this isn't incredibly necessary)...

I would then take their title word-for-word. Just because they are a powerhouse doesn't mean that they get exclusive claim over incredibly broad titles like "How to mow a lawn" or "how to bake a cake".....I, then, take those articles that have ALOT of ratings (but, low ratings, nonetheless), and write them as a 1,000+ word article.....with time and backlinking, I'm certain my IB articles will rank higher than theirs.

(Of course, as of a week or so ago, they seem to have completely removed the star ratings functionality of their articles, for one reason or another....LOL)

I'm still plugging along, adding new and removing some articles from other sites. As of yet haven't even make 1 penny on any IB articles, but I'm going to keep going. Thanks Howie, glad you had a great vacation!

Good luck to you, Ernie. I'll be following to see how you make out.

I love your outlook Ernie, great job brother!

Exactly for this reason - that "that article will earn about 20 cents every month for as long as it is on InfoBarrel." it is not worth do also some SEO on them? I am wondering what are others earnings on theirs because I have seen some more appealing results as 2$/article on some blogs out there. As soon as I publish my first 50 articles I plan to publish my numbers too.

Great article! I couple days ago I wrote down five goals I want to accomplish in the next two years and how I was going to reach those goals. One of the goals was to earn a full time passive income by May. I would need to make $1,000 on Infobarrel per month and $1,000 per month with my own niche sites. My articles have been averaging $1/month so I would need 1,000 articles. I'm going to write 12 articles a day Monday thru Friday. That will give me around 1,000 articles by May. All articles will be SEO optimized and I will do backlinking on the weekends. I'm also planning on creating 30-40 niche sites that should be able to earn an average of $50/month each. I hope I can keep up because I'm also going to school full-time and I need to write articles with upfront pay so I can pay the bills. Anyways, sorry for the long post. I should have just written my own article on the topic;)

20 cents per article per month is quite impossible for new writers. I think writers with a year of seo writing can realistically expect earning at this rate.

If you have 100 articles published then 20 cents per article is $20.00. This is more than feasible for anyone. Most people will actually have higher earnings than this.

Ernie, Can You help me please, I am confused about, Should I write on my own topics or topics suggested in "thing to do" to earn more money

Write both. You can write articles that are simply to target high paying keywords and you can write articles for fun also.

As long as you keep writing you will earn more money. Writing a few articles in the "Things to Do List" has not made me much money, but there is a lot of potential there.

The "things to do" are also broken up into two different things, articles and overviews. The overviews are for the site and only earn 50%, but they are interlinked with many articles and parts of InfoBarrel. The articles in the things to do were titles that were started by someone and not finished (I think). You can also use any of those to generate your own ideas. The best thing to do is write about what you know and add SEO.

My articles are now averaging over .25 cents each month.

Interesting article, thanks. Any update on how you are getting on since it was first published?
