I have never really taken much notice of earnings with Infobarrel if I am honest. But today I actually went in to my Adsense account and did a little tracking for the channels.
Oooh, I was a little surprised.
Between me and my gorgeous lady, we have about 150 Infobarrel articles, if that. And believe me this is not a great number We started writing them in June 2009. Primarily as a resource for backlinks, it made sense to use a site that offers a revenue share as who knows you make make a little extra cash along the way. If you find a revenue sharing site where you can get a dofollow backlink then use it, there is nothing to lose and you can only gain.
Now, I am not saying that you can make the same as with Hubpages, but to be honest I do not use them,. The whole do follow no follow thing drives me nuts.
The good lady makes good cash every month from her hubs, and they rank like a dream, but I can’t be arsed if I am honest. I would rather use one of my own authority sites where I have complete freedom. But I am just a grump sod at times so don’t listen to me.
Apparently last month we earnt just shy of $100 from them in adsense. Page views from the articles range from like 9 to one special one that cleared up with 16,000 views, but that was for a product where adsense money was non existent. What I am getting at here is that most of our articles are not about things for adsense money, we don’t do adsense as out main business model. We get $50 a day if we are lucky. But with a few hundred articles it still brings in $100 a month.
Heck, I have like 500 or so articles on Ezine and that probably means they are getting hundreds of dollars a month just from my stuff. Considering most of may articles are for backlinks and not for topics with high CPC for ads I think that is OK cash from Infobarrel.
If you are going to get backlinks then make sure you get them from revenue sharing sites as well as other sources.
An extra $100 a month for actually helping to improve your sites rankings is nothing to be sneezed at.
Just get that content online and get a lot of it there, ’tis a numbers game after all, he who writes wins.
If you want to know hot to make money with Infobarrel then it is quantity. Spend a month putting as much content on there as possible and if you do keyword research for high paying words you will make a lot more than I do. I am less than patient with keyword tools and often now do not use them, but for the Adsense model they are very important. It really cannot be overstated just how important vast amounts of online content is if you really want to make money blogging. At some point you will find a niche that pays well for affiliate products or however else you monetize. Then is the time to concentrate on that site or set of sites, but you need to put real effort it. Not a few blog posts and a backlink or two. Do as many as it takes until you rank for every post on your blogs.
How many links do you need to rank?
Just get on with it. You will be making backlinks and writing content forever so just keep doing it until you dominate.
And if 150 articles on one site that are all 400 words and just written to get a backlink sounds like a lot then you are in the wrong game. The reality is that you need thousands and thousands of pages of content on your own sites if you want to really make money with blogs. And then you need even more content in the form of backlinks.
Yes a spinning tool cuts the work down a shed load, and much as I hate the fact that they do it is a reality I have now come to accept. More and more people are using these spinning tools to create a hundred articles from one written article so if you don’t use one you are missing out (big time).
The reality is though that however you go about it you need thousands of blog posts on your blogs to find some magic winners. Get enough content online and some of it will shine. Infobarrel is then a way to get backlinks to that content. And if you can make a little extra cash along the way then that is all good. You can even make a full time living from it, but diversity is key.
As I said, our content is not Adsense keywords. If it was then the earnings from Infobarrel would be a hell of a lot higher. But for non optimized Adsense keyword content it is a $100 that is welcome.
Sign up and don’t be like most of the other 40 or 50 referrals we have, actually use it and put a load of content on there and get a strong like from a site that ranks well out of the box and make some extra pocket money at the same time.
If you think you are going to get rich with a couple of blog posts and a backlink or two think again, get busy busy busy.
This month I am dedicating part of my day to 100 new blog posts on a site I had kind of forgotten about. Plus an article or two a day sent to the Postrunner system on TKA. And that is just a part of my day, there are other sites and other backlinks too. If you can’t at least write three blog posts each and every day then why not? You should be able to get at least 3 short posts up a day, it is where the money is, THE CONTENT.
And oh yeah

I know many people will think that a good month of $100 from 150 or so articles on Infobarrel is not good earnings but they are not high paying keywords for the most part, just backlink posts, but it all adds to the pot as far as I am concerned. If you dedicated a month you could get that content on there and then you are on to new things with some nice passive income every month, the beauty of it all my reader.
The bottom line in this game really is to not give up and keep making more and more content.
The importance of very keyword specific post titles for high rankings cannot be overemphasized. Attack every set of keywords surrounding a product or pay per click term. Don’t just write a few posts, make a good quality and well rounded site about it. Most people simply fail to either put in the time or burn out in a month or two. The reality is that it is those of use who stick with it through the early lean months that end up having the luxury of writing on blogs like this and earn a decent living after a lot of sweat.
The last thing you should do is spend your time in forums too much or read stuff like this. If you know some basics then get on with it. Out of our Infobarrel referrers nearly all of them put up a few articles and then stopped. Do you think they have given up their day jobs yet?
Will you in a year’s time?
There is only one way to do it…….
Work and then more work.
Sign up for Infobarrel
You know it makes sense.
Content about a topic until you never want to hear about it again. Backlinks over and over again. Use Infobarrel as just one of your sources for links, but do it.
I know that if I wanted to I could spend a month on there and get to earning $1000 a month, and it may be a god idea for some to do this. But I have other things to occupy my time and to be honest I am moving more and more away from adsense, where it is most profitable. But if I can make a little every month just for a link then you could do a lot better if you are more dedicated and do more keyword research.
