If you're reading this magnificent article because I recommended you to join The Free Resource (TFR), then thank you for trusting me. I am very sure that it won't take the concepts of spam factory to a whole new level.
At The Free Resource website, individuals who enjoy writing could earn extra income by writing for them. To be able to register as a member of the website, a person needs to be at least 18-years-old and have a valid PayPal account. It shares 50% of the revenue that each article accumulates to its author. As of right now, I am not sure how they are trying to earn some revenue. It let its own members write about subject matters that they are fond of. However, writers are restricted to write only nonfiction articles that has credible and reliable references. Fortunately, there is no maximum amount that each article may earn. At the end of every month, The Free Resource will send out payments to all members' via PayPal who has achieved earning at least $50 for the writing website. It is possible that you could earn money via upfront payments. You will have to email them about it. I am wary of writing the email address on this article because then it would be spammers' paradise.
The purpose of The Free Resource is to provide readers with the optimized collection of resources on the web. Their slogan is Spreading Trusted Resources. Thus, they only allow original content that doesn't appear anywhere else on the World Wide Web when it is published by them. Unlike an infamous spam factory, members will always have the opportunity to retain the copyright to their writings. Well, that's what I read. Also, it is asking each member to let The Free Resource be the exclusive electronic publisher of each article for one year.
I'm so happy they approved my article regarding Charles Taylor's trial at the Hague. I thought it was a good topic to write about because supermodel Naomi Campbell might have received blood diamonds years ago.
You could even write either definitions, business profiles, and cities for them. Just let them know you're interested by emailing them. I'm sure they will allow you write less than 700 words for those topics.
If you're wondering how does the interface for The Free Resource looks like, you will be placing your content on a WordPress template just like it is at two other writing websites, Snipsly and TheInfoMine. WordPress is currently a popular destination to create a content management system. It also happens to be easy and intuitive to use.
The Free Resource considers websites that end in .gov and .edu such as hud.gov and yale.edu as the ones that are credible resources with a high level of authority. As for .com sites, reputable news organizations such as The Guardian and the Daily Telegraph will also be okay. Conversely, TFR considers personal blogs and websites that end in .info as places to avoid to do your research. They also don't want information gathered from web pages that have been written through anonymous contribution, or without appropriate citations. Good examples are: Answerbag, eHow, and HowStuffWorks, Squidoo, Wikipedia, and Yahoo! Answers. Holy cow, it really stinks that content from the TMZ website is not allowed because it's seems to be a gossip site. But, isn't everything on that website is true?
