Promoting is going well.

I have been promoting my article on She Told Me. I had only put about half of my Ehow articles on until today. When I checked my earnings I noticed an increase in earnings on articles that I had put on the site. These articles had not made much in the past, so I was surprised. It was not a huge increase, and my earnings in general was not great. It was just that the articles had not done well before.

It got me a little excited, so I went to work. I worked for a couple of hours getting the remainder of my articles listed. I now have over 400 she told me links, I am actually one of the top 10 publishers on the site.

I did a page rank check on Submit Express to check some of my articles, and discovered that She Told Me is ranked pretty quickly.

I have great hopes for my progress, and hope I can report higher earnings soon.

300 Articles!!!

I have finally reached the 300 article mark. It would have been sooner, but I had some removed, and other things came up. I feel it is a great milestone. Only about 70 of the articles have been published for 3 months or more, so I should see an increase in my earnings when the articles reach there 3 month point. Most people say it takes at least three months for your articles to mature.

My next goal is 400 by the end of January, and 1000 by the end of 2010!

Making More Money On Ehow.

Earning money on Ehow is very achievable. It takes time and hard work, but it can be a good income. I have been doing different things to learn what does increase my earnings.


  • Write Often
  • Write well (using proper grammar, and sentence structure.)
  • Revise articles occasionally. You learn more over time and it may help your placement in the search engine.
  • Write on topics that you have made more money on.
  • Write articles that you believe people will search for.
  • Learn SEO, and choose the proper key words.
  • Make a work schedule for yourself.
  • Support other contributors.
  • Check your ads to see if they fit your article, you may need to adjust some wording.

Do Not:

  • Copy other peoples work.
  • Write in all caps or small letters.
  • Waist time in the forum, use that time for writing.
  • Worry about pictures. I have not noticed a difference in the profit.
These are just a few things that can help. I am currently testing a couple of different things, and will share anything else that shows earning potential.


Since I have been back I have had a hard time trying to think of articles, so I am going to focus on promoting until after Christmas. I may submit a couple of articles, but not may. I am promoting my articles on at the moment. I have seen a little progress on other sites, so I am hoping for the same on Ehow.

What do you do for promoting other than social networks?

I have returned from vacation

Hi everyone, I am back from vacation, and honestly did not have the best time. I did get to see Atlantis in Nassau, and that was the best experience.

I returned home to earnings that was not very good.

Of course I did not write any article.

I only made $23 for the eight days I was gone. That is only a little more than $2 a day. I also had an update for today, which was only .32. It was very upsetting, but I am expecting a lot more after the Holidays. I do not expect a lot of people being online reading articles during this time of year, especially since I only have a few Holiday articles.

I have only made $54 so far for December, and that is more that 50% less than last month. The plus side is that I have not been very active, so most of the earnings is residual.

After the Holidays are over I am going to focus on my writing and other online earnings more, so I am hoping for a very large increase in January.

Earning Update

I have not gotten an update yet today, but I wanted to give you a simple update until I return on the 21st. I have not been very active with my writing this week because I was trying to get prepared for my vacation. I have only written 21 articles so far, which is much less than what my average has been. My earnings are only at a little over $30. It is a slow month due to the holidays, but things will pick up in January.

I have been doing a lot of promotion the last few days to make up for my lack of writing. I am hoping for a big earning increase when I get home, I can only hope!

I will be out of town until the 21st, and I will do an extensive update then.

Earnings Updated

Well today and yesterday Ehow did update there earnings. Today they actually updated twice, but they were not very much for me.

The first 7 days of December I made about $20, $15 short of last month. I am fine with that because I am sure people have better things to do during this time of year. I have not been online as much as I should, so I am content with any earnings at the moment. Earning money without working is great, no matter how much it is.

I will be updating my earnings Friday or Saturday because I will be out of town next week. Going to the Bahamas, so excited, it's my first time! I am going to go through Ehow withdrawals.

Earning Update 12/1-12/6

This has got to be the worst first week I have ever had. I know there is still one day left, but it will probably not make a big difference. I am missing two days that did not get updated, today being one of them. I am thinking it may be because of he Holiday season. Well here is my update:

Articles Written-18
Earnings-$13.47(Less than half of what it was last month)

I will add the rest of the earnings when they get updated.

Update and Promoting My Content.

I do not do a lot of promoting for my articles, but I see how easy it can be. I am using and to start my promoting. Since there is an option to promote both on our ehow articles, it is very simple.

Since I am going through all of my 290 articles anyway, I am going to update each one with better SEO. If I can get the SEO used properly, and promote my articles, I should begin seeing a great increase in my income within the next month or so. I am sure there are other sites that I can promote on, but I feel I should focus on a couple. After I see how my progress goes, I may try a couple more.

This may take a little while to finish this process, but it will be complete by the first of the year. I will continue to write article, but not quite as many. I will let you guys know how the process is going, and hopefully share my success.

She Told Me

I have recently heard about a site, It is a site that you can put a scoop about your articles. You put a link to your article, and a brief description about the articles contents. I have put a few of my articles on the site to test it out. I also read that you can earn money from your Google Adsence Account. They put an ad on the scoop page, and you can earn revenue from it.

You can also submit other sites, and different things to You will have to look at the site to see everything they offer, but I think it is interesting. I submitted a link to 10 of my Ehow articles, and it took about 15 minutes to do. That is not very long if it will attract more people to my articles.

I just thought you guys would like to find something extra to promote your articles or websites. If you currently use the site, please share your progress with us.

I published this on both of my blogs to ensure everyone gets to read about the site.

November Earning Update, And Decembers Projections.

November Earnings:

Well I am pleased with my efforts this month. I have increased my earnings by 53%. I have also increased my articles quite well.

Articles Written-94

It is not what I was hoping for, but I a very pleased. I have had a few good days where I earned between $5 and $8, but I have also had a few $2 days. My daily average ended up being $4.22. Last month my average was about $2 a day. The majority of my earnings was from articles that I had previously written, only $30 of my earnings was from November articles. I also had 20 articles deleted in the sweep, one of which was a high earner.

December Projections:

I have learned a lot more about SEO and promoting, so I will be putting more of what I have learned into the articles. I think December is going to do very well. I don't think I will increase my earnings by 54% again this month, but there will be an increase.

Projected Articles Published For December-100
Projected December Earnings-$200 (hopefully more)

I did not focus on EHOW when I first signed up, I only wrote 9 articles before August of '09. Since August I have written 268 articles, and earned $275.

My advice for anyone that writes for EHOW would be to never give up. Keep writing! You will begin to see your earnings increase monthly.
