Pay Per View Article Sites

Avoid these like the plague.

They are aimed at article writers whose only chance of payment is the reader who lands on their article by accident. These writers have no idea either on writing or on how to write for good search engine results.

The payment per view is derisory, 0.001pence per view from one British site. I have a referral link for that site but I would not encourage anyone to go there, so I am not going to even give you that.

Totally forget the idea of pay per view if you can write in good, not necessarily perfect, English. Your English does need to be good, and not to use structures characteristic of poorly educated Asian writers such as too many ‘the’s.

If you can write in good English your articles could earn a lot more from direct ad earnings. Good writers’ work on pay per view sites is diluted with that of thousands of poor writers.

I’m well aware this post is long-gone, but I found it in my own search for Pay Per View writing sites and find myself compelled to counter your negative comments on the model.

Contrary to your claims, not all content drives clicks to advertisements. Yes there is a lot of money to be made with articles intended to draw attention to a product or target a marketing niche, but that is not the only type of articles we (those writers who understand writing AND how to generate good search engine results) enjoy writing.

Personally speaking? I HATE the idea of writing in the hopes that people will click on advertisements. I want to be paid for people reading my work, and for payment to continue because they enjoy my writing and come back for more of it (thus reading more articles of mine.)

Why is that such a bad thing? Why does everything have to be so damned market driven? I have nothing against the marketers, all I want is a place where I can be paid to publish high quality content intended to attract READERS, rather than deliberately target advertisement-browsers or affiliate-purchasers.

I agree with you and wish you success. Unfortunately most sites will not pay for content.
The best sites will aim content at readers and clicks should be incidental, the way they are meant to be.
