How I Rank It: 80 out of 100
As an affiliate marketer I am always looking for a new place to write articles. And on one of my social sites last week, I saw that someone was having success making money with Bubblews. (I know, its a weird name).
So I decided to check it out and share my results with you in the form of a review.
But first let me explain how it works.
Here are the rules:
- Each post needs to be at least 400 characters.
- Each post must be in your own words. There can not be any duplicate content.
- You cannot pay for traffic, ask for likes or use exchange sites to generate traffic.
The rules are pretty basic. So on with my review…
I joined three days ago and since then have written 10 very short articles. Several of these articles point back to my websites which is my number one goal. And I did receive traffic from these articles.
I also wrote a few short posts that had nothing to do with my niches. I figured what the heck.
So today on day 4 I have received 345 views to my posts and have earned $5.37
Overall I like that Bubblews is quick and easy to use and make a little bit of extra money. I think it would be excellent for someone who wants some excellent pocket change.
But for affiliate marketers, I am a bit concerned that it may be a bit of a distraction. I think it is fine to use as a way to market your niche and send traffic to your sites but I wouldn’t focus on just using Bubblews. As an affiliate marketer it is always better to promote your own websites.
An important thing to keep in mind when writing at free sites like Squidoo, you don’t own it like you do with your website. So if the site were to make major changes or shut down, you would be stuck. It is always better to own your own WordPress site where you make all the decisions.
About Bubblews, In Conclusion:
As long as you understand the rules and don’t get to distracted I think Bubblews would be an excellent addition to you marketing strategy. I think it is an okay place to write for some extra exposure. I will continue to keep writing there.
How about you? Are you on Bubblews? What kind of results are you getting there?
