For the longest time the question was
“Which sites do I join in addition to
Ehow?” Now people are wondering
what will take the place of Ehow since
they have shut their doors to writers.
You can still join Demand Studios, but
it’s not the same.
One of the major arguments in favor of Ehow was its monstrous page rank. Sporting a PR of 8 meant that you didn’t have to do much backlinking to make sure your articles were seen on the search engines. Sites like Infobarrel and Bukisa do require a lot of extra effort on your end to make sure your articles are seen. Suite 101 sports a PR of 7. While it’s not as big as a PR8, but you can bet you will still get a pretty big bang for your time.
Making More Money with Suite 101
Keywords, keywords, and oh yes… keywords. You are going to have to do a lot of research on keywords in order to make a lot of money per article on Suite 101. This will involve researching those words on the Adwords: Keyword Tool to determine the amount of traffic and competition for those words. This will also involve properly placing those keywords within your articles. You will want to include the keyword 3 or 4 time
throughout your article to ensure that
Google deems it worthy. That being said,
you don’t want to overdo it or Google will
penalize your article and it will never be
seen on the search engine.
Applying to Suite 101
Suite 101 has a fairly rigorous application process as far as online writing sites go. You are required to submit several examples of your writing to get in. If you are submitting writing that is already completed, you may want to go over it again and proofread it to make sure it is acceptable. Try to avoid writing in the first person (using words like I, we, or our). Most writing applications will deny you for that. And obviously you will want to look for any grammatical errors in your writing as well.
Overall, Suite 101 is one of the premier sites to make money online with your writing. If you put in the time and effort, you should be able to supplement your income very well. If you are looking for an alternative to Ehow, Suite 101 is the best. Other writing sites like Squidoo, Infobarrel, and Xomba are good, but you won't do as well on Google as you will with Suite 101.
