We all write on multiple sites to earn but it is very hard to earn from from these sites unless you know SEO. Now here comes Wikinut where you can make extra bucks also by republishing old articles. With Payment Proof Inside.

Which Site to Write for

All of us are here to earn a few extra bucks by writing on various topics. Triond is an excellent site as you get write about almost any topic and payout is extremely low. Experts Column is great but i personally do not like the Interface. I post on Bukisa but they do not except all content. So here is a Hottest new site for you to join and for those of you already on the site - the proof that it really does pay even though most of us thought otherwise. New Writers can Join here
Join Wikinut

Wikinut - The Hottest New Site


Ok, Now I'll tell you about the site that many have heard but not joined because of many reasons or many who have joined but are not getting paid. Initially, I too joined with Apprehensions initially but now its my Primary site for writing. On the Contrary to what Many people online say, for me, it pays higher than experts column and Triond. Now the Reasons i prefer Wikinut is :

  • Most of my Content is Poetry or Short Stories. If you write How to, or technology articles, chances are Search engines will pick your articles instantly. But not in in my Case. If you are not getting traffic from search engines, you must rely on traffic within the site and Wikinut is at least 2-3 times better than its closest Rival ( Even its harshest critics would agree on that)

  • Most Supportive Community: Now, Everyone who has written there will also agree on that, its the best community of people for any writing site. Also the moderators are excellent and help you in developing your writing skills.

  • Best Interface: Wikinut has the best Interface with articles organised into sections for easy and uncluttered viewing. Ads are also organised in a proper manner with no irritating pop ups or popunders.

  • Chance to get Read: This is one of the most important reasons for me to join Wikinut as i believe every writer wants to have their work appreciated and read. At Triond or experts Column many of my Articles got less than 20 views ( One got more than 3000 also) . But at Wikinut, none of my articles got less than 125 views and its gets commented upon and read by lots of people daily. Again the Really supportive community helps.

  • Payments: Now Comes the part where there would be many differences in opinion. When i joined for the first month i republished 10 of my Triond articles ( i do not care about Google's Update of Panda or Even Penguin as i hardly get any traffic from there anyways). I was really disappointed because i earned just .05 GBP or about .09 $, Even though my viewership was high. So i almost quit the site but i came back after 2 months and i submitted about 25 more articles and also interlinked many of them and my viewership and earnings exploded. Now The Important factor here is stick to Wikinut for just about 2 months, keep publishing articles - even old ones- and hang in there. Believe me You'll earn.

Payment Proof


Ok. Here is my Payment Proof for receiving payment from Wikinut. Many of the fellow writers here have almost lost hope of ever earning something but this will motivate them. Also for the writers who mostly write stories, poems or prose, it is a proof that you can earn by writing these types of content as well. This is my earnings up to APRIL 2012. I made about 5.51 GBP or about 8. 2 US Dollars. But after some fee deduction ( I guess GBP is not my home currency that's why) - i still got 7.67 USD. This is good for me as i make usually less on Triond. But this is just the beginning. Now for the Month of May Alone, i made about 3 GBP so another Payment for me (will be sent on 10th Jul) and this month has been even greater. So the Payment is constantly increasing. Till April, i published 35 Articles (More than 25 of them were Poems or Short Stories). Now i have written 64 Articles. Now it has become my Primary site and i Submit an article on Triond and as soon as it is published here, I submit it on Wikinut. I however, do not post many Poems and short stories any where else as you hardly make any good bucks on them.

About Wikinut


It is like any other Site- you upload your content, it gets reviewed and published and you earn Royalties. Royalties. Now, Wikinut unlike other Sites have Human Moderators instead of Automated system and believe me it does improve Quality. All the 4 Active moderators that i know are most helpful and their suggestions really helps in improving your writing.
Wikinut Pays Royalties based on ads shown on Your page. You can earn in three ways

  • Royalties: You will receive 50% of the advertising revenue from your Pages in royalties. This is similar to what most sites pay and is competitive.

  • Moderator : At Wikinut, you also get a chance to earn from being a Moderator]. Moderators will receive 5% of the advertising revenue from the Pages that they have reviewed and published.

  • Referral Earnings: Referrers receive 5% of the advertising revenue in royalties from any Pages written by authors referred by them (Amounts to 10% of author Share)

So payment is like this. Suppose a Page Make 10 Pounds. 5 Pound Goes to the Author. 0.50 Pounds(5% of 10 Pounds) goes to the Moderator and another 0.50 Pounds( 5 % of 10 Pounds or 10% of author's share i.e 5 Pounds). So Wikinut Receives 4 Pounds from the 10 Pounds that the Page makes.

What Can You Write?


Another Excellent thing about Wikinut - you write anything you wish on any topic and they will publish. There are obviously some restrictions like Adult Content but they except everything else. You can write here in two ways

  • Write a new article - I write most of my Poetry here as most other sites would not give you hits on these

  • Use the Same Article (and change content). You can simply copy paste the same articles from other sites. However, if you are concerned about Search Engine Traffic, Change the Orientation of Article.

Initially i just reposted articles but now i change - not for search engine traffic but presenting it in a better manner and organising it in sections (Possible only on Wikinut)
Most of the time Authors repost here since it is legal to do so as long as you're the original author. There is a section containing notes to moderator where you can publish link of site from where you've taken the content (Not Necessary but still a great thing to do).

For SEO Writers


Now if you write keyword optimised articles and concentrate on search engine traffic, then also it is a good option for You. After Penguin update, Google does punish sites on duplicate content but here you can make use of Wikinut's unique 'Section' feature. Here Articles are broken down into Section instead of a Single Article. It means rather than your readers being faced with one continuous stream of paragraphs, you can break up your page into section each with its own title. This improves your Page rank and if you do this properly chances are you'll be listed much higher. That is the Reason why Wikinut pages are consistently ranked higher.
Benefits of using Sections are :

  • They add big, clear headers to each division of you page. Good to divide your article in various sub-parts

  • Pages with 3 or more sections get an automatic table of contents

  • Section headers are great for SEO, and help you improve your search rankings

But Important thing is to give the Article a much different orientation using carefully breaking down into sections. Also it adds alternate tags for images by default and if you use it properly, you can get good traffic from image searches as well.

IS Wikinut a Scam

There are many Online forums which says it is fraud and does not pay. Well The above Payment Proof answers that question. Also Payment Rate is indeed less but the exceptional traffic that it gets from within the sites more than make up for this. So Wikinut is not a fraud, Join and write articles and hang in there for a month or so and keep posting articles. Believe me its the best writing experience( you'll enjoy writing there). And when you're having a good time there - you will also earn money.

So What is the Secret


Every one has their little secret for Online earning. Some say keep writing, some say Search engine optimization and many other will say Networking.

So what exactly to Do?? Now whatever i say is based on my experience and might not work for you but still you an give it a try.


  • Make writing your Primary aim rather than Earning : i joined writing sites to earn some money and as a result was always looking for content which pays most - like expensive Adwords, or worrying about Back-links. But when i joined wikinut, it taught me one thing - Focus on your Core Competencies - which is writing the content i like rather than worrying about which article will get more hits. Once you focus on writing part, earnings will follow suit

  • SEO : Now everyone is talking about SEO, keyword optimization and SEO techniques. Now most of these techniques cease to work after a Google update of their algorithm - First Panda and then Penguin. For example Anchor tags and website meta data, once considered useful SEO are now penalized after Penguin update.
  • For a new user and who is here for writing, these animals names can be very scary.
    Now One of my Favorite Novels in Animal Farm by Orwell and that's why i love Google's updates - It reminds me of The Novel (Pun Intended). I don't Understand why People keep on running after Panda and Penguin. If You know SEO, its excellent but most people don't, so stop wasting time on SEO techniques and focus on writing part. By the way, for All SEO enthusiasts, Google has also updated Penguin to version 1.1, so you can keep hunting the penguin.

  • Use Social Media : This is the Reason why i get so much traffic. Everyone is talking about Google and the amount of traffic it brings. True, Google is Alexa's Number 1 Ranked site but we are forgetting a giant here - Facebook - Number 2 on traffic but site where people spend their maximum time. You can get highest quality traffic from facebook. On triond, facebook is my Number one referring site followed by triond and then google. Of course, i have about 700 facebook friends and about 25-30 facebook fan pages on various topics and some fan pages of Facebook apps that i made. Now it works like this, suppose i post a link of my story on page having 5000 fans. If i am admin and page is active, it will be visible on most of their walls. Even if 1 % like it or even better share it, it will be shown on all their walls too each with 200-250 friends. So u can estimate the Viral Power of facebook , if used properly. Also Use Google+ and twitter whicch can also bring good traffic.

  • Use keywords Wisely : Surprised! After bashing of Panda and Penguin, I am again talking about Keywords. Now, this is not about Google. Instead it is about Wikinut. Yes, Wikinut! If you see on the write side, you can see a list of similar pages - now these pages are based on keyword. So if you use Good keywords, you will be displayed prominently. But Never Use false keywords like writing a article about Grapes and using keywords like mortgages. It is not allowed here and also, if your keywords does not match content, then its of no use

  • Simple and Useful Tips Follow as many people as you can and comment on maximum number of pages. People do reciprocate and you'll definitely gain viewership. Also, if you want instant boost in your topic see what is trending now and write on interesting topics. Another important is make your Title and Description interesting. Foucs on them rather than just writing them as an afterthought. Referring is also good on long run as these cents keep on adding.

Congratulations on a great "Star" page Shaunak. I agree with everything that you say, but I do want to add one thing, Don't hold your breath on becoming a moderator. Let me explain why I say that. I had been writing for Wikinut for several years during which time I made my interest in becoming a moderator known on several occasions. I was one of the sites most prolific writers at that time with the vast majority of my pages being "Star" pages, but for the most part my requests were ignored. One one occasion I received a terse note from another moderator telling me that they weren't putting on any new moderators at this time but would keep me in mind when they did. They finally did a couple of months ago, but I wasn't one of them. When I inquired about why I was passed over, I received no reply from the Chief Nut or from anyone else. In the end I will say that there is a great community of writers here on Wikinut but it definitely doesn't rank very high in the professionalism category as far as I'm concerned.and it's not one of the top five sites that I now write for.

No, Actually i am not looking for Moderator's job as i know i am fairly new and there are people way ahead of me to become a moderator. i also see great work by our moderators, especially some useful suggestions. When i joined here, a few useful suggestions and comments from johnydod got me going on the site. Even though earning is not good here, but atleast it is something and the community here is the best on the internet. So well, its currently looking good for me...

That comment was meant for everyone, not you specifically, Shanak. My point was simply this--there seems to be some unwritten criteria for selecting moderators that goes beyond ones ability to write good articles and ones ability and willingness to help new comers succeed. I did both even though I was just a writer. Many writers on this site will tell you that I helped them get their start here. I did it simply because I enjoy helping new writers get their start. I still do because I get pleasure out of seeing people achieve their dreams of becoming a successful writer. On the other hand, I'm a professional full-time writer so I have to spend the majority of my time writing for online sites and for print publications that pays me what my time is worth. Writing is my only source of income and I do have bills to pay.

I would also like to be a moderator because that looks like the only way that I will make a dime on this site. But I know my chances are slim to none, unless I get some help from Johnny Depp, and use some voo-do on them.

Well, jerry i do agree that many of he things are not clearly explained or written here - a pitfall for the Site. For example minimum payout seems to be 2.5 GBP but the site says 5 GBP.

As for selection of moderators, i have been here fairly recent but i do admit i have seen u helping many people on the site and i have also seen some of the great articles that you've written. I also agree that Site owners should have some well defined criteria for selection of moderators as moderators are very important part of this site. But I guess, they do not want People to behave in a particular manner just for the sake of being a moderator. That is why even the exact criteria for a Star page is never revealed fully - just few abstract cues.

Thanks for Sharing your valuable insight and keep helping new writers.

This is a great place to read, post and develop skills... So far, it is not a very promising site if making money is your goal :-} Hard to have things both ways. But Good to see a fellow nutter getting paid. It proves that it is not a Scam and pays.

Hi, Shaun. Thanks for your illuminating post. Well, with regard to aesthetic interface, I've got to hand that to Wikinut.

Your revenue earnings must have come as a surprise as well as revelation, and in an instant you must have rejoiced...at least a little. For the net amount was "well earned" since November 11, 2011 (last year).
But of of course it's not how little we earn but how long we do...at Wikinut.

When I stopped writing at Wiki and since I started posting at ExpertsColumn on May 8 with 58 articles, I've already earned 3.70 USD. Not much to look at but if you compare the earnings here for a month, you'll be amazed at how you will weep when you see earnings on our Wiki accumulated in months running to a year or to eternity.

Not that that really mattered a lot, for residual earnings is really not much, especially on Wiki so much so that you can donate that to Charity.

My beef with Wikinut is it was always like, when we suggest something, for the betterment of the site, YOU WERE TALKING TO A DEAD POST.

At other sites, there would always be updates, notices, announcements as what their sites are carrying out.

At Wiki, no announcements, no newsletters, no notices, no bulletins, NO NOTHING.

And pigs might fly anywhere!

Thanks for stopping by Buzz. I do not like interface of expertscolumn very much but it is a good site to earn money. I have posted a few articles there and payment is great. But I enjoy writing here, so i am sticking to the ship as of now. Agreed, support is non responsive or even dead but people here are good and interface is good. And if u want to earn extra you can always post wikinut links on redgage which has highest payouts. Also expertscoulmn for some weird reason has stopped using paypal for payment in India and are using Moneybookers which i never liked.

A good written article and provides insight into wikinut. But i also agree with buzz- hard to earn here compared to other sites but the community here is lovely. People are so supporting, so everyone is sticking to the site in a hope that earnings will someday improve. Thanks for wonderful share

Shaun, they haven't stopped using Paypal. and Moneybookers are suited to Indian writers not Paypal. Just that you haven't seen enough of their features there. I see that you only posted 2 articles here, so you cannot hastily generalized about the site. I love Wikinut as much as you do but I won't come back there till there's a sea change going in favor of writers and the site. Take care, my friend.

Oh, btw, I've now garnered 4 USD as I speak at Experts because I've used the same techniques on Wiki of sharing articles to ALL networking sites I knew, only I earned miniscule there in eternity terms than that I have now in a month and 2 days.

I couldn't edit the above, Shaun, cause I typed very fast than my thoughts...lol.

Now let me update you. I now earned 5 plus USD for 60 articles at Experts since I posted there May 8, with 6,400 page views during that time (May 8 - June 12).

I've also received my Wikinut revenue share of 2.68 GBP for the period from June 3, 2011 to June 10, 2012 (86 articles). I've always subscribe to the dictum that I will be thankful for small mercies, but the figure is disgraceful, to say the least.

But the poetic justice there is: Compare.

Nice Debate going on between Buzz and Shaunak. Both have shared good points of different sites and this post is becoming even more useful for all of us. so keep debating friends.

I just want to share some observations that i made: Buzz still has register link for wikinut on all of his pages, i wonder if he believes no one earns anything here, whats the use of referring and misleading other people! (Just an Observation) . And Shaunak does not provide referral link for experts. (Another Observation)

P.S : i am a poet and occasional writer but i believe what shaunak says - if you are writing poems, no matter what site u write, u won't earn big bucks. So i'm gonna stick with wikinut for a while to see how things shape up here..

P.P.S: keep debating friends, we all benefit from it

Great information. Thanks! I love Wikinut because I like the way the pages are set up with a title, and links, and the site is so easy to use. It is also great knowing how many people are looking at your pages, and getting to know the community here. I also take assignments and write for Yahoo Contributor Network, and get paid.Triod sounds like a good site because it advertises your pages for you, but they have rejected everything that I have ever submitted to them. In fact, the last things I have submitted to them, they have rejected in a matter of literly a second. They must have me on automatic reject.

This is a great article dear shaunak! I hadmany doubts in my mind and it was a sheer coincidence that you have added me in your follow the authir list! And because of this I could reach this lovely article of yours!

As you said I like the interphase of this site and I have decided to write some good articles or modify my old articles before posting them, so that at least I will have sense of satisfaction that I hav published some nice articles on the net!

Yes reagrding the payment part I am confused to see that my total is getting reduced instead of getting increased, I fail to unertand this phenomenon !
That is not a big issue, I will get it ckeared fromconcerned authorities of the site!

Thanks a lot dear friend for the nice article and also following me!

Thank you for this article. I intend to stick to Wikinut, but it is very encouraging to hear from someone who actually earns from it. One thing I wish Wikinut would have is forums. It will really help to build a sense of community in this place. I hope they think about adding forums in due time. Another question I have is, all those nutpoints -- where do they actually end up to? Is there a prize or something at the end?
