Almost every writer here on InfoBarrel wants to increase their earnings. Regardless of how much you are making, you will probably be looking to increase you earnings. Here are some tips and ideas on how to increase you InfoBarrel Earnings
The biggest key to earning more money with InfoBarrel is to write and publish more articles. If you are not consistently adding more articles each month then you cannot increase your income. Even if you are only able to add 10 articles you will at least be moving forward towards increasing your income. Many new writers here in InfoBarrel seem to want to know how much they can earn, but they quit writing after publish only a handful of articles because they are not seeing quick results.
Writing for InfoBarrel will not bring you quick riches, but if you consistently publish new articles you will see your passive income increasing each month. In General, the more articles you have the more you can earn. If you want to make a lot of money then you should work towards a goal of 1,000 or more articles.
Interesting articles are what you need to publish here on InfoBarrel. In the past many writers found success with writing 400-500 word generic articles such as “buy cheap widget cheaper” and other similarly generic and bland articles. The only goal of these articles is to suck in traffic from the search engines and then get clicks on the Adsense ads. With Panda and all of the other Google Algorithms changes this strategy does not work near as well anymore and could also hurt you severely in the future.
Focus on writing interesting articles that people actually may enjoy reading. In the long run your earnings will benefit because you are providing good content for your readers and are much less likely to get penalized by Google.
The more pictures you add then the more you can earn. Once images get indexed by Google Image search you can earn additional money off of the images since each image also has its own dedicated page with Adsense ads on it. In addition to increased revenue the images will also help to drive some of the Google Image searchers from the image to the actual article.
Pictures also help break up the article, make it more interesting, and can even attract people towards the ads. When you are sharing an article on Face Book you will tend to get more visitors overtime if you have interesting pictures to go with the article.
Simply increasing your revenue share from the standard 75% to 90% each month will increase your potential earnings, especially if you already have a large folio of articles. If you have 200 or more articles and are not increasing your revenue share each month then you are leaving free money on the table. Why get only 75% of the ad impressions when you can easily get 90% simply by earning points writing and submitting articles that fit in with the editorial calendar.
Many authors here on InfoBarrel get very little traffic from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. One of the best ways to get some additional traffic from Facebook is to share an article you wrote and published here on Facebook, and then message your friends asking them to “like it” and to reshare it. If a handful of friends repost this for you and then in turn their friends see it then your article can get a lot more traffic and earnings.
It is very rare that a viral style article will go viral on its’ own, but with the proper social network to support you then it can go viral easier as long as you ask your social network friends and family for some help.
It is vital that you integrate your Google Analytics with your Google Adsense. You can use custom URL’s in Adsense to track earnings, but you will only be able to do that with a limited number of articles. By integrating your InfoBarrel Google Analytics with Adsense you will be able to see how much you earn with each and every article regardless of how many you publish.
By tracking your Adsense earnings on InfoBarrel within Google Analytics you will have a lot more information and stats available to you. You can use this information to overcome writers block and to write more articles that people are finding and clicking in the ads on.
It can be hard to use the internet and stay focused on your writing. You can easily get distracted when you are doing research for a topic. There are many other distractions also such as Facebook. You may turn on your computer intending to research and write an article but you instead spend a couple of hours on Facebook. Write down some moderate goals and then stick with them no matter what. You may only have a moderate goal of 20 articles a month, but if you focus on that target then you will be able to meet your goal. If you can consistently add 20 articles each month your earnings will gradually go up. On the other hand if you have high goals you can set a target of writing 90 articles a month for InfoBarrel and you will see your earnings increase much faster, but it will still take time.
There will always be times where you may feel burned out or simply tired of writing articles. This is all part of the process that affects all writers at various times. The key is to enjoy the overall process of writing here for InfoBarrel. If you are writing an article and get bored of the topic simply set it aside to finish at a later time and then begin working in an article with a topic you currently find interesting.
Hi Askformore--Thanks for the above article--I not only found it informative but insirping--as a writer I have always put out a ton of work so I am fine in that arena but I have not yet reached my early goal of 200 articles. Well, its true, I want to see some profit from my labors and I ain't seen any yet--neverthe less, your piece is very motivating and so a big thank you and five big stars!
Hi bord77, I also wondered that when I first started. To integrate analytics you have to write a minimum of 10 articles before it becomes unlocked. After your 10th article has been published, the option for analytics will show up under your advertising profile, in your account section. I hope this helps. Good luck!
This was a helpful article, but I have one question. How do I increase my revenue to 90%? I'm new here, and unfamiliar with some of the things. I will be going to the forums to learn more, although it would be nice to see an answer here because the issue was addressed.
No wonder this is a featured article, some really easy tips and explanations on what someone needs to do to move forward.
There is more but sometimes we get so hung up on all the extensive stuff that we panic and forget to write anything at all.
Well done Askformore.
Great article on increasing our earnings here on InfoBarrel. These tips you provided will help out regardless of which writing platforms we are using and publishing on. These tips are also very applicable if you are running your own blog.
Greetings askformore! I am new in info barrel, and actually your article was the first I read. I found it very helpful and informative, especially the Adsense part which I had no idea you could do that in order to track your earnings per article! You really gave me some basics I can start with.
Good advise for increasing InfoBarrel earnings. Most people want to be able to earn as much as possible with their content. I like that your first recommendation is to write interesting content. If the content isn't interesting, people wont want to read it or share it and you can earn anything from it.
Interesting content. I like that you put that first. This is great advice to follow and I bet it works for writing on any site. I only have a few articles out here but this inspires me to write a few more. Thanks.
Hi there, thanks for writing this resourceful article. You cover some excellent points, especially about putting up quality content that is interesting to readers. Focus and time are a big part of it too.
Thank you, to ALL of you who have read the article: "Tips to Increase Your InfoBarrel Income". I really appreciate all your comments, but you are so many that I can't reply to each of you. Therefore, a BIG Thank You!
Thanks for an interesting piece. I began on Hubpages, but Google seems to dislike them right now, and I can understand that, there was a lot of garbage writing there when I began. I began my own blog last year, and am building content. I also started writing here and Wizzley, and realize I need to be part of a larger group to make money. I am trying to decide whether I want Infobarrel or Wizzley to be my main site now (besides my own, for fun). Wizzley was supposed to be the "great, best, new thing" but isn't doing so well, and I find lots of little annoyances writing on it. I am leaning more towards putting my efforts to IB now, I have my 10 articles. Any others who have had experiences on other sites?
Your article was helpful in realizing how much I need to be writing in order to be successful. 20 articles a month seems like a lot and over a 1000 to make money but like anything in life you have to put effort out. I am just starting to write so this gives me a goal. Distractions are numerous but also some of those distractions, like other peoples articles, are interesting and helpful. Thanks.
We write for many reasons. Money motivates us, but when people read about something they didn't know before and they leave a comment it really gives me a high! As you say, enjoyment is important and that is what the reader picks up - your vibe!
This is a great piece and it is full of the great basic common sense advice that a newbie like me needs. Thanks for making things appear more accessible to me and to be able to properly start sharing my experiences on here. Thanks for the help!
Is there a minimum dollar amount you make for your first payout? I've come to IB several times since I wrote my 10 articles to be accepted, but am still having trouble managing my time. I no longer add content to Hubpages, and found having a personal blog is very time consuming, and it's very hard to get views on your own. On Hubpages, I had to get 7,000-8,000 views a week to begin making the minimum payout of $50.00. It took me almost a year, because of the Google algorithms change. I decided I like it better here than Wizzley too. So I'm not scatttering my energies and focus as much, though I have been writing on Bubblews. It's so easy, you only need to write 500 characters, and you get paid every time you reach $25.00. But then I miss writing "real" articles, those little blurbs don't satisfy my creative urge.
I get extremely distracted writing on the internet! Very good point. I'm a newbie and still fumbling with the platform ie; adding images etc. but when I found IB I knew I was home! Heres to many more articles in the coming months!
