Tips to Increase Your InfoBarrel Income

By Edited Oct 9, 2015 109 81

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

Write and Publish


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.

Write Interesting Content


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.

Add Pictures

Mud Fest

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.

Increase Your Revenue Share Each Month


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.

Social Networking

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.

Google Analytics

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.

Stay Focused

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.

Have Fun

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!
Jul 26, 2012 12:22pm
Thank you very much for your read and comments!
Aug 7, 2012 4:10am
"Stay Focused"... too late, already browsing others articles, forum, etc... I definitively need to work on that.

Aug 7, 2012 2:54pm
Thank you for your (double) comments! :) Doing everything twice make it even more difficult to "Stay Focused". Good luck to your "working on that".
Aug 13, 2012 8:03am
This was very interesting and helpful to me as a new infobarrel person. thanks!
Aug 14, 2012 5:28pm
So, how do you integrate google analytics on info barrel?
Aug 15, 2012 7:44am
You can connect your adsense and Analytics together, but you do need to make InfoBarrel our "primary" domain.
Aug 24, 2012 2:36am
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!
Aug 15, 2012 12:52pm
thanks for this lovely article, I am new to infobarrel, and had no idea I would be allowed to write that much.
Aug 21, 2012 4:06am
Thanks for the advice, I am new to the infobarrel world and the affiliate marketing world so this is helpful to me. How do you integrate your Google Analytics with Google Adsense?
Aug 23, 2012 12:18pm
Hi guys, I'm confused here. How does this writing articles work exactly? Are we supposed to choose from the topics in the "Explore Infobarrel" window below and write about what interests us?
Aug 24, 2012 1:15am
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.

Thank you,
Aug 24, 2012 2:36am
Great, thanks for the article! It is indeed all about persistence!
Aug 24, 2012 8:22am
I was just wondering if these are arranged in this particular order based on importance or is it just a random list? See, write and publish is on top and of course, I think that's the core of it all.
Aug 24, 2012 8:29am
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.
Aug 24, 2012 12:15pm
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.
Aug 25, 2012 5:51am
A great article helping the newbies that come to InfoBarrel as well as a reminder for the rest of us.
Aug 26, 2012 11:52am
This is a very thoughtful and well-written article. I will definitely heed the advice. Thank you.
Aug 26, 2012 2:31pm
Interesting article. I hope other Infobarrel writers can find it useful like i do.
Aug 26, 2012 9:12pm
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.
Aug 28, 2012 9:38am
Good information. It does take a while to start getting some income as you stated plus it's a number game. Thanks, I need to start writing here again.
Aug 28, 2012 9:50am
Thank you this is really good information. I only joined this site yesterday and your article has inspired and educated me on what I should and shouldn't be doing.
Aug 28, 2012 8:28pm
Honest advice! Staying focused is a big key! I am finally improving each day.
Aug 29, 2012 12:35pm
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.
Aug 30, 2012 9:53am
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.
Aug 30, 2012 11:56pm
Great tips! I have not had time to write for awhile, due to unforeseen circumstances, but plan to get back to it soon. This reminds me of things to do...thanks!
Sep 11, 2012 5:42am
Excellent article and an enjoyable reading askformore. I will certainly use most of your tips.
Sep 18, 2012 2:24am
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.
Sep 18, 2012 6:24am
Congratulations on your feature and it deserved it as very helpful especially to newbies. I have been slack traveling lately. Have to get back to writing
Sep 19, 2012 1:36pm
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!
Sep 27, 2012 12:33am
Thanks for the tips,it's helping
Nov 8, 2012 2:15pm
Great article. I'm new to infobarrel, so thanks for the help.
Nov 17, 2012 12:22pm
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?
Nov 19, 2012 4:34am
Wow!i have to admit that your article has opened my sight and that am gonna work hard towards achieving a new goal.

Nov 21, 2012 6:56am
yes! I'm still pretty new to this site but watch out world! i'm going to hit the skies... see so much opportunities here. Thanks for the article...
Dec 7, 2012 1:50pm
helpful article. Thanx 4 sharing
Dec 20, 2012 8:34am
Thanks for the great info!
Dec 30, 2012 6:07am
Very interesting tips.I have started adding pictures into my articles.
Dec 30, 2012 1:03pm
Great Article!
Jan 13, 2013 8:50am
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.
Jan 19, 2013 2:11pm
Thanks for all of your great insights and advice!
Jan 20, 2013 9:46pm
A lot of good info in there. If only I'd follow all your advice!
Jan 29, 2013 5:30pm
I was also wondering how many articles do you have to publish before you can go from 75% to 90%.
Feb 2, 2013 5:04pm
Should I wait until I have published articles to sign up for Google Adsense?
Mar 18, 2013 11:03pm
Mar 6, 2013 2:38pm
These are good tips Askformore and I like the graphics.
Mar 7, 2013 3:25pm
Helpful, thanks!
Mar 18, 2013 11:02pm
For the beginners this article is a gem... thanks for the effort.
Mar 29, 2013 12:19pm
Very helpful article - thanks for sharing!
Mar 29, 2013 3:35pm
Good advice for us 'newbies'! thnks
Apr 14, 2013 4:13pm
Thanks for offering such sound advice. I will follow your suggestions in my submissions.
Apr 15, 2013 7:46am
Thank you!!! Your article was my second article read on Infobarrel and it gave me good tips and inspiration!
Apr 19, 2013 1:33pm
Thanks for a very helpful article. I haven't written an article for a long time and I guess it's time I write one now to increase my earnings.
May 5, 2013 5:21am
Love the article! Simple. To the point. Interesting. Inspirational. Informative. Loved the pics! Thank you.
Jun 5, 2013 6:12am
Thanks for the tips. But how do you increase your revenue share? You did not explain.
Jun 24, 2013 10:46am
Great article. Appreciate the author has given step by step approach applicable specially to infobarrel.com and not a generic opinion.

Thanks for sharing.
Jun 27, 2013 1:54am
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!
Jul 12, 2013 12:54am
This is extremely useful! Very great advice. I will definitely use this advice.
Jul 16, 2013 9:55am
Great advice. I'm new to Infobarrel and learning the ropes! Thank you!
Jul 29, 2013 4:56pm
Great advice! My goal is to have at least 10 articles by the end of this month. I've only been a member for maybe 3 days. I'm almost there and I'll be keeping these tips in mind as I continue writing.
Aug 6, 2013 6:13am
solid advice - thanks!
Aug 13, 2013 11:05am
Great advice, but they're easier said than done I guess.
Aug 23, 2013 4:51pm
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!
Aug 24, 2013 2:53pm
Very nice article. I am new to this IB thing and reading an article like yours is very helpful. Thank You for the great info!
Aug 28, 2013 9:34pm
Thanks for the tips. Must write more!!
Sep 27, 2013 12:03pm
Beautiful article as usual. Straight to the point. I am new here in IB and I am quite sure that these points are going to go a long way into helping me be among the best writers in IB :)
Oct 23, 2013 10:00pm
Great article! There is no denying hard work is the foundation of real success. I appreciate your honesty here.
Nov 9, 2013 4:06am
On the point of using Facebook to promote your articles, is it really necessary? Im not a fan of Facebook. It's fine if others like it but for me personally it's not my cup of tea.
Nov 21, 2013 4:07pm
Those who are not fans of social media websites could try word of mouth, but the advantage of sites like Facebook is you can reach a large amount of people in a short amount of time.
Dec 4, 2013 11:21am
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.
Dec 10, 2013 9:22pm
Punch points which all we need to follow.

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!
Feb 3, 2014 6:35pm
Good advice!
Earning good money takes time and usually a lot of effort.
Just a few articles and giving up or even adding monthly but very modest amounts will not lead you far!
Feb 17, 2014 7:16pm
These are helpful tips, I have just joined infobarrel, still wondering how this works. But with these tips I will have a good start. Thank you.
Jan 12, 2015 7:05am
Thanks for the information and awesome advice! I am new to this and struggling a bit! This article has helped me a lot!
Mar 27, 2015 8:43pm
Its such a great article. Just what I needed
Aug 1, 2015 10:06am
Very helpful. You just saved me a week of figuring things out.
