I thought I would be able to earn money here, but over the period of two years my articles have paid nothing. However, all of them have been visited hundreds of times. It would help if someone could enlighten me as to why this is happening.

I just took a look at your account and you only have 3 articles that have about 150 total views. Unfortunately many of those views will be from when visitor data was recording search engine crawlers as visitors to your article. Since February 2011 we have stopped counting those views as actual visits to your articles, as they are not real people. Also, you may want to look into creating some back links to your articles to boost their search engine appeal.

To get a better understanding of what you need to do to make your articles earn, I suggest posting your question in the forum. People will be able to give you much more in depth answers than I can do in this reply.

Sorry! actual stats showing only 1 article with just over 100 views out of 3 articles.. To get better earnings write more articles on less competitive keywords.

Just wrote my first article yesterday and it shows it back in the draft section rather then pending. Does this mean I need to add more words, check spelling etc? Just getting a feel for this, so not sure what is expected. Feedback would be great as far as what needs to be changed.
Feb 5, 2012 12:16pm
You must have hit the wrong button. Go back to the article in Draft and hit publish. Good luck.

This article was so helpful thanks! But how do we get the money for views on our own articles?
Apr 26, 2012 9:05am
This was really useful. many thanks.

I am new here. How long does it take to have an article approved?
May 23, 2012 10:04am
hey i am also new here. What are the guidlines for writing an article and is there a certain format that is required?
Jun 10, 2012 8:46pm
I know you have a no-duplicate content rule, but does that also apply to articles I've posted to my blog site? I have a number of high quality articles I've posted to my blogsite (and no where else) that I would like to update and post here; is that a possibility?
Sep 5, 2012 11:58am
Sorry, you cannot post content on InfoBarrel that is currently published elsewhere. If you were to remove your content from your blog, you'd then be allowed to publish it here.
Jul 1, 2012 11:22pm
Hi. I wrote an article and it was accepted and then I applied for google adsense but they refused. Can anybody guide me as to how to successfully open an adsense account?
Jul 8, 2012 9:16pm
Good to see how InfoBarrel has grown and improved during the past two years since I started here. Things just have gotten better and better!
Aug 29, 2012 8:24am
My first article has been sitting in the "Pending" mode for a couple of days. Naturally, since this is my first attempt and because I'm itchy to get my Adsense account established, I'd love to get published! I keep wondering if I did something wrong or if it just takes awhile to get reviewed and approved. I've actually edited the article a few times while in Pending, so I'm wondering if that slows things down or causes issues. I notice that there are a number of articles offering Infobarrel tips and tricks. Can anyone point me to one that offers a lot of technical help? Thanks!

@ Starbird I have been a member for about a week and it is a case of trial and error with it all. There are spell checks in the page that you are writing also proof reading tools. I had a few returned but focused on what the article was being returned for before re submitting it. There are some great articles on getting started and setting up adsence which has to be approved manually by infobarrel but this will not happen until you are pre approved and an article has gone live. I stopped writing for a day or two, like you I thought I was doing something wrong. Today however things are moving which has pushed my motivation to keep being creative and write more. Be patient and look at all the different articles on gettingnstarted. Good luck!

I just got started and got all my info entered, got a url accepted and somehow clicked out and now I can't get back to it.
Jan 15, 2013 7:27pm
Great article! I keep coming back to it because I can't figure out how to start writing from any other place. I click on your link though and I go immediately to the right place. Where do I go to start writing when I'm signed in?
Jan 21, 2013 12:30pm
Once you are signed in you will see a create link in the navigation bar.

How do I acquire the six number code to get into my Google acct?
Jul 11, 2013 5:07am
Hi Guys,

Talking of new kids on the block; here I am hallowing from South Africa.

I essentially look forward to learning from you guys.

Jul 26, 2013 10:38am
What if we're not experts and are just starting out in our freelance writing career? I'm looking to improve my writing skills and widen my range of topics. Is this acceptable here?
Aug 10, 2013 4:07am
Can I use a different email for Paypal?
Aug 23, 2013 7:01am
The language of the article must be English, right? Thank you.
Apr 20, 2014 7:10pm
I have signed up but am not able to write here coz I don't know how to write here
May 20, 2014 5:00am
What is the minimum word threshold here.?
Aug 18, 2014 4:46pm
I wrote my first article and submitted it for review by editorial team. They rejected it and said the article has bussiness promotion content but mine was just an app review for apptrailers.
Sep 3, 2014 6:39am
I clicked on the start writing link,it was not going through! Why?
Nov 9, 2014 1:04pm
This may be a silly question and I'm sure the answer is somewhere in the content that I've gone through, but I'd rather come out and just ask! Can I write an article about ANY topic here? There are specific needs or areas I have to "apply" for? This is my first attempt at writing online professionally. Thank you!
Nov 12, 2014 9:56am
This post was very helpful thanks
Dec 7, 2014 3:29pm
Thank you. A helpful start.
Dec 8, 2014 8:34am
Could you please tell me what is the word limit or character limit(minimum) for a post?
Jan 12, 2015 6:04am

Feb 28, 2015 9:27am
Please do I have to be approved on adsense to start earning money?
Mar 8, 2015 4:48pm
You no longer have to have an adsense account to earn here. InfoBarrel has the account.
Mar 22, 2015 11:14am
I have submitted an article and am having issues with uploading. When I Save and Preview, it only shows the Title not the body of content which I place into the Article Summary. My article consequently was rejected, It will not allow me to create my article correctly with this issue, has anybody had this issue?
May 24, 2015 12:31pm
I'm new here, I'm trying to write my first article and it contains images and video. But when I try to "add" the image, the site turns into blackish screen highlight but no where to proceed to upload my image. How do I proceed to upload an image to my article after I press on the "add image" button on the lower right side? will appreciate an answer :)
Jun 19, 2015 2:32am
I'm trying to submit my first article and I can't seem to figure out how to do it. Please help.
