The Best Revenue Sharing Websites To Earn Passive Income From

When it comes to the revenue sharing websites on the internet, there are literally hundreds to choose from! And, although it is good to diversify, it is not a great idea to spread yourself too thin. With that being said, I would advise choosing a few websites to focus your attention on!

There are a ton of factors that come about when choosing a revenue sharing website to write articles for. You should be considering things like the revenue share percentage, advertising programs that they utilize, revenue share percentage that they offer referrers of new members, admin support, and the general community of members!

This post goes into detail to describe the revenue sharing websites that I earn passive income from, and the reasons that I have chosen them over the rest!

InfoBarrel-Revenue Sharing Website

Percentage Of Revenue Share: 75%-90%

Advertising/Affiliate Programs That You Can Earn From: Google Adsense, Chitika, Amazon Associates

Percentage Of Revenue Share For Referrer: 2%

Quality Control: First 10 articles need to be manually approved before being considered for pre-approval status

InfoBarrel is the main revenue sharing website that I write for, and I have earned a ton of passive income from the articles that I have posted on it. The website offers a base revenue share of 75%, which is really high. In addition, it allows you to achieve up to a 90% revenue share by writing articles on specific topics each month. The revenue share for the referrer is sort of low; however, InfoBarrel is only keeping as little as 10% of the revenue from the articles, so you can’t expect them to fork out much!

You will find a variety of advertisements being strategically placed throughout the InfoBarrel articles (strategically placed ads mean a higher CTR, which translates to earning more passive income from articles). The website allows you to earn from Google Adsense, Chitika, and Amazon Associates.

InfoBarrel also has what I consider to be the perfect quality control measures! They review the first 10 articles that you write, and then consider you for pre-approval status (articles go live upon clicking the “publish” button). They hold your hand at the beginning, and then set you free!

The two things that separate InfoBarrel from the rest of the revenue sharing websites don’t involve the amount of passive income that you can earn from posting your articles there; although the per article earnings are quite good, there is something else that keeps me there. They are the support that you get from the administration staff, and the strong community that is present. The InfoBarrel owners treat the website like it’s their child, there are hundreds of members that play really strong roles in the community, and everyone is always willing to help.

Wizzley-Revenue Sharing Website
Percentage Of Revenue Share: 50%-60%

Advertising/Affiliate Programs That You Can Earn From: Amazon Associates, Google Adsense/Chitika, Zazzle, AllPosters, and VigLink

Percentage Of Revenue Share For Referrer: 10%

Quality Control: First 10 articles are read by a moderator before given automatic publishing capability

Wizzley’s base revenue share percentage is rather low, sitting at only 50%; however, they make up for this by offering a whopping 10% revenue share for the members that you refer. The base revenue share is increased to 55% when you have published 50 articles and 60% when you have published 100 articles! I have personally not written a ton of articles for Wizzley, but the articles that I have posted there have earned a ton of passive income.

It is very rare that you see a revenue sharing website utilizing more than 2 or 3 advertising and affiliate programs (this is normally because they can’t get approved for more than 2 or 3); Wizzley has managed to effectively incorporate 6 programs into their members’ articles! In the world of building passive income streams through articles, more advertising and affiliate programs equates to more money!

As I was saying at the beginning of this post, it is great to diversify your passive income streams; earning money from more advertising and affiliate sources means more diversification! The last thing that you want to do is put affiliate links from one or two programs throughout all of your articles; getting banned from one of those affiliate programs could mean the death of your passive income!

SeekyT-Revenue Sharing Website
Percentage Of Revenue Share: 70%

Advertising/Affiliate Programs That You Can Earn From: Google Adsense, Chitika,  and Amazon Associates

Percentage Of Revenue Share For Referrer: 25%

Quality Control: First 3 articles are moderated before being given automatic publishing capability

I had originally begun to solely write articles for SeekyT to build backlinks to my InfoBarrel articles; however, the articles that I had posted on SeekyT were beginning to earn quite a bit of residual income! One of the reasons that the articles on SeekyT were doing well was because of the chunky 70% revenue share that the website offers. But I think the main reason that the articles were performing well was because I got to choose the ad placement for each individual article! Better ad placement meant a higher click through rate, and a higher CTR meant more passive income from the articles!

This revenue sharing website really wants you to spread the word! The 25% referrer revenue share makes me want to tell everyone about the potential to earn passive income through the articles that they can write for SeekyT! TWENTY FIVE PERCENT! Some websites barely offer more than 25% to the actual members that are writing the articles, nonetheless, the ones that have referred those members!

Google has been coming down on “black hat” backlinks lately, and internal linking is one of the safest ways to go! With that being said, SeekyT offers one of the greatest internal linking structures that I have ever seen. One of the most painful things to do on other revenue sharing websites was to internally link to my other articles; between finding the URL, adding in the hyperlink coding, and updating my backlink tracker…it took FAR too long! With SeekyT’s easy-to-use internal linking structure, these steps can be completed in minutes.

Every minute saved when adding internal links means that one more minute can be spent building up your streams of online passive income!

Squidoo-Revenue Sharing Website
Percentage Of Revenue Share: Undisclosed (algorithm based on the rank of your lens)

Advertising/Affiliate Programs That You Can Earn From: Google Adsense, Amazon Associates, CafePress, eBay, Zazzle

Percentage Of Revenue Share For Referrer: $5 when the referral’s lens earns its first $15

Quality Control:

I wish that I could explain to you exactly how the revenue sharing model works on Squidoo, but unfortunately, I can’t. The only thing that I can tell you is that IT WORKS! Each piece of content is called a “lens” on Squidoo , and every lens that I have posted has earned a substantial amount of money! And those lenses keep earning every day…truly passive income!

The lenses that you write are given a ranking in their category, and the percentage of revenue share that you receive from those lenses is based on their rankings…higher rankings equal a higher revenue share percentage. Personally, I believe in transparency and disclosing numbers when it comes to revenue sharing; however, I don’t see anything wrong with rewarding the “better” writers with a higher revenue share!

In addition, Squidoo offers many ways to earn; 5 advertising and affiliate programs is more than enough! Diversification is the key when it comes to building online streams of passive income through revenue sharing websites, so be sure to use all 5 of these programs throughout your Squidoo lenses!

HubPages-Revenue Sharing Website
Percentage Of Revenue Share: 60%

Advertising/Affiliate Programs That You Can Earn From: Google Adsense/HubPages Ads, Amazon Associates, and eBay

Percentage Of Revenue Share For Referrer: 10%

Quality Control: Every article is held for moderation before becoming public

Related Article On Earning Forever:

HubPages has been around for a very LONG time, and anybody that has heard about earning passive income through revenue sharing websites has most likely heard about HubPages. The pieces of content that you publish are called “hubs”! Your hubs are all given a rating, and your profile is assigned a score out of 100.

There are two things that I like about HubPages more than most websites: their upfront statement of the revenue sharing model, and the great quality control measures that they take!

HubPages is completely clear about their revenue sharing model and lets the user know that they share 60% of the advertising and affiliate commissions with the member and 10% with the person that referred the member. In addition, having each of your articles held for moderation may be annoying at first, but you will enjoy the fact that most other websites will be getting hit by Google’s algorithm updates while your hubs stay comfortably in their search engine ranking position! Having your articles remain in their position on the search engines is vital to maintaining your passive income!

TopicSpotter-Revenue Sharing Website
Percentage Of Revenue Share: 70%

Advertising/Affiliate Programs That You Can Earn From: Google Adsense and Amazon Associates

Percentage Of Revenue Share For Referrer: 25%

Quality Control: Every article must be approved before going live

Related Article On Earning Forever:

I have only heard about Topic Spotter recently, but it has definitely impressed me! It has a magazine-style theme with all of the categories being listed on the top. I had also intended on using this website for backlinks, but had eventually begun to post independent articles on the website once I saw how much passive income they had earned!

What I like about Topic Spotter is that they offer a HUMONGOUS revenue share for their members; they are barely keeping anything for themselves! Each member consistently earns 70% of the Google Adsense and Amazon Associates commissions, and the person that referred that member receives 25% of the respective commissions!

Referring members is as passive as income can get; you send someone to the website, they sign up and write articles, you get paid (as well as them)!

The unique thing about Topic Spotter is that all of the articles should fall into a specific category; hence, the magazine-style theme! This website looks like one that someone can cruise around on their spare time and read articles that interest them within the website; don’t be afraid to interlink your articles, as people will be more prone to clicking on those hyperlinks!

Nice site! I’m half way through the 4 hr work week book. Running some test on ‘autopilot’ chapter!


Mike April 28, 2012 at 10:42 pm

Hey Luke,
the 4 hr work week book is amazing and definitely taught me a lot about letting things run themselves! When it comes to letting things earn money on “autopilot”, revenue sharing websites are the best! You write articles, and sit back as they earn passive income for you!


Sarkind April 29, 2012 at 8:00 pm

I have accounts with Seekyt, TopicSpotter, and Wizzley, but have only posted 2 or 3 test articles on each site. Even with backlinking and on-page optimizing, I can’t seem to get any traffic to these articles, whereas with Infobarrel and HubPages I get traffic to new articles immediately–often without any backlinking.

To me, it seems wisest to wait until S, T, and W have more search engine authority before devoting the time and energy into building massive libraries on these sites. Why post an article on Seekyt today when you could post that same article on IB? After a year, that article will have made 10 times as much money on IB than it would have on Seekyt.

Now I know some people will say that you should get in on the ground floor early and let your articles age. But that strategy is like leaving money on the table when there are simply much more lucrative revenue sharing sites out there where you could let your articles age. I think the people running those sites do good work. In a year I might revisit the possibility of posting more articles when their search engine presence has grown. In the meantime I will probably just use those sites sparingly to build backlinks to my other articles.


Mike April 30, 2012 at 2:59 am

Hey Sarkind,
I completely agree with what you are saying, InfoBarrel offers results immediately; whereas, the other revenue sharing websites tend to take a little longer for the articles to get some search engine traffic. That is why I mainly writ for InfoBarrel.
I choose to write for all of the websites because it gives me some diversification in regards to the affiliate programs that I use.
I would write a ton of articles for InfoBarrel, and backlink the best performing ones on the other revenue sharing websites!

I prefer squidoo because I can write about all types of topics and they also let writers use HTML to design and make each page have its own unique look. I guess if you are a creative type person who likes images, art, and graphics then Squidoo will work best.


Mike May 7, 2012 at 1:41 pm

I have produced quite a few lenses on Squidoo, and I must admit that they are earning fairly well. I completely agree with you about Squidoo being the best revenue sharing website for creative people; the website simply works best with all types of media! The one thing that I don’t like about Squidoo is the fact that you don’t know exactly what percentage of the revenue that you are earning; they allow you to see how much each lens is earning, but not how many pieces of the pie are coming to you! Hands down, Squidoo is a great website to write for!


robby September 20, 2012 at 8:19 am

Really nice information. It will definitely help those who don’t have an approved adsense account.
Thank you!


Mike September 20, 2012 at 6:11 pm

I agree Robby. Those that don’t have an approved adsense account can use these revenue sharing websites to earn passive income from other sources (like Zazzle, Amazon, Chitika, and eBay)!
Thanks for stopping by to comment!


Luca January 25, 2013 at 4:24 pm

I like, that is a very simple 100% revenue sharing site, where the posts have only to be 150 words long


Mike January 27, 2013 at 12:56 am

I’ve never heard of dubblep before, but I’ll definitely take a look at it. 150 words sounds great for short periods of time in which I only have 3 or 4 minutes to work, so it could prove to be very useful for me!

Thanks for the recommendation Luca, and thanks for commenting on the post!


Ankita April 21, 2013 at 6:24 am

Thank you Mike for this wonderful article. I am new in to writing and willing to start writing for Squidoo, Infobarrel, Hub pages and Wizzley. Everything looked like a blur until I read your article. I do not have a approved adsense account yet so these websites should work for me. Any advice for newbie writers is welcome.
Thank you all again!
