Squidoo Earnings vs Associated Content Earnings

by PotPieGirl on December 14, 2007 · 4 comments

Today was payday – both for Squidoo AND for Associated Content. I love paydays!!! Oddly, since I saw both payment notifications in my email at the same time, it got me to thinking about time spent vs revenue earned.

So – let’s discuss it!

Squidoo Earnings -October

Squidoo is still continuing to increase it’s payouts each month. Needless to say, traffic is improving, the Google-love is back… PR is up. It’s all good.

Last month’s payout on Squidoo, the highest paying tier earned $4.67 each (remember, this is the co-op shared earnings that is split amongst lensmasters based on lensrank. This is not earnings from affiliate modules).

The payout we received from Squidoo this month paid out $6.05 for each top-tiered lens! Way to go Squidoo. Thats the best Squidoo payout yet!

Lets take a look at Squidoo earnings of past:

Squidoo Earnings – Past Payout Schedules

Paid in——–Month Earned——-1st Tier——2nd Tier—-3rd Tier

July————–May—————–$3.80——–$.65——– $.05
August———-June—————–$5.99——–$1.03——–$.06
September——July——————$4.12———$.73——–$.04
October——-August—————–$3.32———$.56——–$.03
November—September————–$4.67———-$.79——–$.06
December — October —————–$6.05——–$1.03——–$.05

Very nice!!! Squidoo earnings keep getting better and better!

After careful examination, mathematical evaluation, and a calculator – it looks like I earned $28.64 just from the adsense share of this Squidoo payout.

Not bad – Thank you, Squidoo!

Associated Content Earnings

I also received my November page view bonus from Associated Content today. Associated Content awards a bonus payout to their content producers based on a fixed amount per so many views of each article you have published.

I’ve had a couple of articles do really well on AC lately. I started writing for them around the first part of June and I am already just about at 100,000 page views. =)

My page view bonus for the month of November on Associated Content was $41.62.

And a big thank you to Associated Content, too!

Associated Content vs Squidoo – which do YOU do?
Personally, I love both sites and I use both sites. With Squidoo, while the monthly shared payout is somewhat low, the earnings and traffic I see thru-out the month are fabulous. Plus, Squidoo is fun!

On Associated Content, I get paid upfront for my article (usually between $5-$10) and then continue to receive earnings from each article from the page view bonus.

I like ‘em both – so I’m not choosing!

Sadly, I haven’t had much time for either site lately – been busy building my own sites! But I’ll go in and freshen up a lens or two – maybe create a couple each month… and they still seem to do ok. Not as well as constantly tending to them – but they do “ok”.

I haven’t written for Associated Content in what feels like forever – but the articles I already have there continue to bring me some revenue that I use to buy more domains =)

I made over $70 today from those 2 sites for work I did long ago… know how many domains I can buy with $70? Enough to keep me busy this month! =)

Thank you Squidoo and Associated Content for giving me the opportunity to grow my business!

Thanks for this article. I’m all the time searching for (best) opportunities to make money online. $5-$10 per article at AC sounds nice.

Pasis last blog post..Is online business going to recession?

Thanks for posting this, You are a very good writer so it is easy to see why you earn so much, and you deserve it. I wish you more success. I used to write more for squidoo but now principally use it for gaining back links. I am addicted to AC though!

Squidoo and AC are both great. I see you write a lot about squidoo in particular. You should really also check out hubpages. Hubs work much like lenses only they get a lot more traffic.
