My Completely Transparent Review About Infobarrel

After One Month of Writing IB Articles

I've been using InfoBarrel for exactly one full month, and I wanted to share my experience thus far for a couple of reasons.  First, I want the other "noobs" to weigh in and talk about their experiences, both positive and negative.  Second, I'd like the veterans to chime in with words of wisbom, tips, or general advice around how to continue to produce with InfoBarrel.

So, that said, here are my stats so far:

Time on IB: 1 month, 1 day

Articles: 30

Acheivement Points: 296

Most Views for Single Article: 420

Least Views for Single Article: 8

Total Page Views: 1,988

Total Earnings: $0.59

So, I've managed to produce about one article per day over the past 30 days.  However, I haven't actually written one new article each day.  I prefer to work in chunks, producing 5 to 10 articles in one several hour period.  Going forward, I am shooting for one article each day.  I know that a lot of people make a goal of three or even five articles a day, but I like to keep my goals ultra realistic (that way, you're never overwhelmed).

One of the biggest problems I've encountered so far (like everyone) is coming up with new ideas to write about.  I have had a couple of themes that generated several articles, and it's interesting to note that the most shallow, basic thing I could think of (sex/beauty) is generating BY FAR the most traffic.

I'd like to see more earnings, but I'm not sure what is to be expected at this point, so I'm just going to keep pushing forward.  I post all of my articles on a handful of bookmarking sites, including Digg, StumbleUpon, SiteIce, YoStuff, and a couple more.  With the exception of StumbleUpon, I'm not sure if these links are really generating any significant traffic.

I'd really like to hear from other new IB writers and veterans alike -- I'm wondering what sort of earnings you can expect with 100, 500 an 1000 articles on IB.  I really appreciate the responsiveness of the IB community and hope this was a helpful report.  More to come next month!
