Writing for TheInfoMine was easy and has been very profitable in the long run. Many writers who have published articles on the internet have become disenchanted with eHow and Demand Media, and other places that have complicated rules, do not allow you to keep the rights to your articles, delete your articles without notice, or have such restrictive policies that it is almost impossible to keep track of what you may and may not write!
By contrast, TheInfoMine had a very generous revenue share policy: eighty-five per cent of the Google AdSense impressions showed up with your AdSense ID, so that if someone clicks on an ad with your Google AdSense ID, you will be paid from Google. This is one of the most generous revenue sharing formulas (don’t be fooled by the sites that tell you that one hundred per cent of the impressions are yours: that is not true of every single ad block on the page). On this site there were no complicated secret algorithms, and writers had the ability to earn unlimited amounts of money on their articles. In addition, TheInfoMine originally allowed writers two links in each and every article they wrote, and both of those could have been affiliate links to Amazon, or links to blog posts or other articles, or the writer’s web site.
And I have had personal experience with TheInfoMine’s administrators, who have proven their honesty to me. I won a contest at one of their sister sites, and was paid within hours of winning. There is really no way to express the honesty of the site administrators, and with the WordPress interface on TheInfoMine, I think almost any writer would have enjoyed writing at this site!
Update: I just won the first contest on TheInfoMine, and again received payment for the contest immediately. I simply cannot say enough about the honesty, efficiency, and trustworthiness of the admins. It is really a pleasure to write here, knowing that I can trust the site administrators to deal with me generously and honestly.
Second Update: Unfortunately, less ethical writers seriously abused the policies of the site, and so most of the writers have had their accounts deleted and have been asked to remove their articles. Even those of us who tried to provide useful content have had the rules changed and had to revise our articles, and the site is now closed to new writers. However, I hope that writers will take a lesson from this site, and not abuse the policies on other sites. Otherwise the wonderful opportunities we have may one day all close their doors to us.
