The Truth about Making Money Online Writing Articles


There have been probably thousands maybe even millions of articles written online about making money online writing articles and yes here is one more. The difference between my article about making money writing online and many of the other articles is that I am going to give you the truth based on my experience writing articles for just over a year now online.

Let me tell you first off that this article is not about discouraging you from writing online. I think the concept and fact that you can write online for free and make money is a great idea. I just want to help you decide if it is something you want to really do and give you some helpful tips if you do decide to go for it.

The first truth is that you will not make very much money when you first get started. It might take you months or even longer before you even get a payout from Google Adsense. The reason it takes so long is because there are millions of articles being posted all over the world every week and niche websites for your articles topic that will probably get viewers before you do. It takes a while to build up traffic and traffic is what you need to start making money.

The second truth about writing articles online is that you will have to spend many hours every week building up your articles and fine tuning them week after week without earning very much money.

You are going to spend many hours unrewarded for your effort. Don’t get me wrong you will start to earn some money but it probably won’t be enough to pay for your mortgage and bills and groceries. You might earn enough very quickly to start paying for your internet connection monthly which is a success in itself. So don’t be fooled or mislead by anyone who tells you that you can make thousands a month just by writing online in a short amount of time, that kind of money takes years. Unless of course you are that one in a million person that has the gift of writing and knowledge.

You can write about anything you want as long as your subject abides by the website and affiliate accounts you sign up with and their terms of use.

This short article wasn’t originally to plug Seekyt but as I was writing I thought why not point out this great website. I believe Seekyt shares 70% of Adsense clicks on the pages you create. Seekyt is a great platform to write articles on. You can SIGN UP HERE.

Another truth about writing online is that you will have to create dozens if not hundreds of articles to start seeing some good income.

Next one is more of a fact than a truth. When writing it is best to have many articles based around the same subject and link them together rather than having 100 articles about 100 different subjects. You might start off writing random articles and only linking a few together and you will quickly see that the ones that link together get more traffic.

These truths only scratch the surface when it comes to writing articles online. There is a lot to learn about key words, SEO, Back linking etc but don’t be scared. At first just start writing and write a lot and the other things you need to know will come in time just like with anything else in life.

I think writing online is a great idea as a hobby and to make money and it keeps your brain active which is something a lot of us can use. I hope you enjoyed and found my article useful about making money online writing articles.

Good luck.
