I'm Sick of Triond

By Edited Aug 16, 2015 1 6

  • Triond earnings are notoriously low.

Normally I wouldn't knock Triond but recent research and issues concern me with their platform. As for the low earnings, you might think that it is solely based on my small number of articles posted there. True, I have just under 60 articles on Triond and yet my monthly earnings have only gone over $5 on one occasion. For as long as I've been at Triond I've always been paid, so I won't say that they don't pay. They just don't pay squat! Unless you crank out maybe 5 or 10 articles a day AND you are a SEO master and you work your butt off promoting your articles  AND you know and use every dirty trick in the book to increase  page views. If that is you, then by all means stick with Triond. As far as I'm concerned though earning $4 or less a month for over 50 articles is a disaster. These low earnings bring me to my next issue with Triond.

  • Triond Does Not Promote Your Work

A big part of the low earnings at Triond is a lack of promotion on the part of Triond its self. Articles are only promoted to other Triond users. Since Triond is not the most popular or reliable pool of information very, very few Triond writers will ever reach fame or fortune writing there. Which brings me to my next point.

  • Why is Triond Unpopular and Unreliable?

Triond will publish anything. And I do mean anything. I have literally read hundreds of posts that are merely a short series of broken sentences strung together. A lot of the community does not speak English and I imagine they use writing at Triond to practice. That is great for them, and I only have a problem with it because if you try to publish a few gems with piles of garbage the gems are bound to get buried. Now, I will say this, the Triond community is a very friendly group so it is not them I have a problem with it is Triond for publishing EVERYTHING!

  • The Last Triond Straw

Triond integrated with Google a while back and while it adds to earnings it also puts your Adsense account at risk. There seems to be a lot of invalid activity going on over at Triond. Writers have no way to track visitor's activity. Only Triond can do that and apparently they don't. Even when made aware of the issues. Another Adsense risk associated with Triond is the pornographic images with links to more pornographic articles and images that have begun appearing at the bottom of regular everyday articles.

Apparently at Triond if you're reading up on how to teach your kids to ride a bike, you might also enjoy a healthy dose of porn. Triond has been made aware of the images numerous times and has not yet fixed it or prevented it from occurring. I don't want my ads anywhere near anything that could get my Adsense account suspended. So for me anyway it's bye, bye Triond and hello, InfoBarrel. Hopefully I'll find a more promising environment here.

Thanks for the warning about Triond. I have always wondered about the site and it definitely sounds like a risky proposition. :)

In spite of low earnings it was one place that would publish anything you wanted to write on that was the only real draw. Now the junk they publish brings the whole site down and the porn stuff is completely unacceptable.

Wow, I write on Triond. Have been writing there for about 6 months. I have added alot of articles and pulled alot of articles from Triond to test the waters somewhere else. Then, I discovered Squidoo. Squidoo seems like it is hard to rank well and ultimately earn some dough. That is what led me to InfoBarrell. So, Here I am...Hi!!!

Hi! Welcome to InfoBarrel! In spite of being here awhile I haven't posted much but the more you look around the more you can see a huge difference between InfoBarrel and Triond. These guys even have contests for Amazon gift cards up to a $100. I think that's pretty cool motivation even if it takes you awhile to get your Google earnings really rolling in. Good Luck and enjoy!

I have never even looked at Triond because of the fact that others have said anyone can post anything there. Post Panda that can't really be a helpful thing to do.
I am happy enough with InfoBarrel, Squidoo, Hubpages, Seekyt and a couple of other places. I can meet myself coming backwards now, so I have no need for Triond, although your article did help give me more information.

I never heard good things about Triond. Thanks for the reminder to stay away.
