There are a range of payment options for article writers on the Internet.
These range from sites that pay you a tiny, tiny amount per view to other sites where you can negotiate your own payment on completion of the contracted work.
As an article writer you need to strike a balance between different systems of remuneration, because you need income today, next month and in ten years. Some websites give you money on a twice weekly basis for work you have completed, others give you links to your own website.
It is a case of horses for courses. You need to choose which sites you submit your articles to very carefully.
