The Good, The Bad And The Ugly Facts About Passive Income

How to Ween Yourself Off An Info Barrel Forum Addiction

Facts about writing online for passive income is an article addressing some of the pros and cons of trying to create a passive income stream by producing and publishing on line content.

From the beginning, most people are drawn in by the allure of promised riches with  little or no effort. The brutal fact is unless you happen to pop out the next Facebook or Twitter, your efforts will take a great deal of time and a serious amount of effort to produce any kind of considerable results.

Get ready to invest your heart and soul, along with your time, as the task at hand is to build a library of content, a collection of articles. Then get ready to write some more, as 6 to 8 months pass. This is about how long it takes for a good article to age within the search engines to it's proper rank.

So waiting 6 to 8 months for a return may seem like a long time but... You will not be bored. There are bookmarks to post for your articles. These are short blurbs on blogs and websites which are related to your content. Place a link every time you have a spot to place a link. Target high page rank sites and .edu as well as .org sites, these sites carry a lot of link juice.

Use all of the social networks you can to get the word out about your work. This kind of networking can leverage your friends by getting them to pass your link to their friends and so on and so on. Twenty friends passing one link to twenty friends each adds up to a bucket load of back links to your work.

Publishing Your Work For Residual Income

Where Do You Do It?

Where you decide to publish your work will depend on some variables, such as the type of content your writing. You'll look for a revenue sharing site that publishes your type of content.

Look at all the writer sites that come up in a search for revenue sharing article sites. InfoBarrel is the best in my humble opinion but there are literally hundreds of choices out there. Make sure to look at the percentage of revenue the site pays.

Some article directories pay 50% to the writer. Some pay more, some pay less. InfoBarrel pays 75% to its writers and allows the writer to contributed more content and raise this to a whopping 90 percent.

You'll also want to look at the rank of the site with both Google and Alexa. These two snippets of information can show you what the majority of users think of a site. There may be reviews you can read from other writer. Check the forums and see if the click is for you.

All of the above and anything else you can find out about each site should be compared until you find several you'd like to try. All of your eggs in one basket is never a good idea. Spread your work over at least three sites and interlink the work between these sites as well. This will make your work much more likely to get a good ranking in the search engine listings.
