Can we still make money online writing paid posts?

I have never written for SocialSpark and still am puzzled how it works. I did try but when the post was given to me, the amount offered was much lower than what I bid. So, I didn’t participate.

Frankly, after all the hype from Payperpost aka Izea aka Socialspark, I never see it taking off for me. Now, I only have a miserly USD55 pending. However, I have to-date made USD15K from PayPerPost. So, I shouldn’t complain.

So, to those bloggers who are new in this area call make money writing paid posts, you may have missed the wonderful time we had more than a year ago. Back then, we could make USD400 per night!

Now, the chances to make money writing paid posts have dwindled. The paid post companies are no longer rewarding bloggers with large payout. All advertisers want to take advantage of the sea of bloggers so they throw USD5 and asked for PR4/10 and want 300 words! I will tell them to take a hike. If you take that, your PR will disappeared so it is not worth it. But if you can stay below Google’s radar or you don’t care about pagerank, writing paid post is the easiest and fastest way to make money blogging.

Back to my title question ‘Can we make money online writing paid post?’, the answer is ‘Not anymore.’ But don’t take my word for it. Give it a try and good luck.

    Good topic. I was wondering the same for a long time. Since Oct/Nov last year when the PR penalty started, I have not written any paid post. I became very careful with my selection. Only did for those accepted “nofollow” tag, but how many would accept? So far, 1 year already, only 2 (from linkworth)!! Guess there are just too many bloggers spoiling the market. If we all united, not interested in $5 posts (presume at least PR3 n above), all insist on nofollow, then we will have the upper hand!

    As for now, it is the advertisers’ market. Simply supply more than demand.

    Btw, never used social spark, not even once. Not against PPP, but just some technical problems. :p

    I was also wondering about PayPerPost. I don’t hear anything about it anymore. I would have loved to make $400 in one night!!!

    Thanks for the information. Now I know not to go there.

    Yup, I’m still making money from it coz I have many “back up” PR4 blogs for me to do the assignment. I bought many PR4 domains set it up with WordPress.

    Each domain will survive for at least 2-3 months before the pagerank update. But one for sure, it still can make big MOOLAH before the next pagerank update.

    Nevermind, keep buying and posting. Still can make money what. Google penalized, then buy again. It will never stop.

    Personally, I like using Blogsvertise for blog posts.

    Er….still very much possible provided you know your way around how to sniff for opportunities. Go check out some forums where there are ready buyers ;)

    As new blogger I admit that I can make money online by writing paid post.It is my only best option rite now because PPC and other online money programs are low performance.

    Thanks for the information. I just signed on to both of those sites. I notice that some of the top bloggers were doing pretty well. Since I am new to blogging I will try it out. I figure it will be a great way to earn a few extra dollars while I am learning how to blog. Thanks for the information and have a great night

    If you think you can, you can. But even if I can, I won’t. Unless I start another blog lol.

    What you say is true. It is no longer lucrative. Should find another option.

    I am also a new blogger. Always in the look out for some income opportunity online. I have just started a blog and I am still in the process of learning ways to monetize it. Thanks for the tips that you are giving here. It is valuable information.

    i think no problem
    webmasters want to promote their websites and forums
    so it is very easy to get paid from posting job!
