Many users to Wikinut wonder how their earnings are calculated. I hope to shed some light on this with this article.

Why are Wikinut Earnings Confusing?

Writers on Wikinut may be confused because when they check their statistics page it shows high views one day and low the next but the earnings do not necessarily follow the pattern of the number of views. Clearly this is confusing.

People assume that high views means high earnings, and low views mean lower earnings.

How Wikinut Determines Earnings

While Wikinut displays the number of views on a page these may not all be counted as legitimate views. In some cases people open an article and click off it too soon for it to count as a paying view, but it still is registered as a view.

Short views are useless, advertisers know that a short view is not enough for a person to even glance at their ads, let alone read it. Since it is the advertisers to ultimately pay Wikinut and Wikinut who in turn pays the writers, if a view is not long enough to be worth getting paid for - you simply are not paid.

Some Views are NOT Legitimate

Wikinut monitors where views are coming from.

There was a writer here who had thousands of views per article, but the majority of views came from a site where people were paid to click on long lists of articles - these are not legitimate views they are views designed to scam the advertisers, they are not potential customers, and as such none of the views from such sites are counted in terms of being paid.

How to Improve your Wikinut Earnings

You need to captivate readers to stay on your page longer.

A poorly written article will not hold readers.

Having at least one picture is good too - however I remind you that Google and Bing Images are NOT Safe to Use.

Use breaks between paragraphs to make your article more "readable".

Add 2-3 links to related articles thus keeping viewers on your pages.

Encourage comments - if a viewer has to take the time to make a comment, their view is longer and thus payment for that view is a sure thing. Controversial topics often get more comments.

Promote, Promote, Promote. Good tags mean more views, but do not expect people to find your article by random, the Internet is loaded with millions of articles if you want views on yours you must promote it, share it with friends or family, add it to Facebook, or Twitter.

Mark, thanks for clarifying some things about how Wikinut pays. I especially liked the part about sites there people were paid to click on long list of articles. That explains a lot of things to me on why some writers can get so many views over a short period of time.

This page has caused me some confusion. I had thought pay was based on ad clicks as opposed to views?

We are paid on legitimate clicks as well as views too.
False ad clicks are a huge problem for websites and people who engage in such activities of generating false ad clicks are not paid for them.

There is also another factor that most writers are not aware of. Many writing platforms are on Google's list of content mills. If your site is on that list Google will not show any article (no matter how good it is) on the first page of a search. Thank God Wikinut is not on that list. Also people are so tired of advertisements here in America and for the most part we try to do everything we can to avoid them. However, I still write in hopes that someday I may earn something or maybe I just write for my own enjoyment and my fans!! Gosh!! I so need to get a real job!!!

I've never even hooked up with anybody I've worked on a <a href="http://www.coachoutlet-sale.com/" title="coach outlet">coach outlet</a> with." But what about after a movie wrapped? She laughs. This plush leather wallet is roomy and unzips to reveal a plethora of pockets for cards, change, and <a href="http://www.coach-factory-outlet-online.com/" title="coach factory outlet">coach factory outlet online</a>. Of course, the real siren song is the elegant color combo. This <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutlets2014.com/" title="coach factory">coach factory</a> has two large compartments bags to separate your clean and dirty laundry, so you don't have to worry about the <a href="http://www.coachoutlet-buy.com/" title="coach outlet">coach outlet</a> accidentally dropping the floral <a href="http://www.coachstoreonline.com/" title="coach store">coach outlet store online</a> purse cut panties your mom got you for <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutletspurse.com/" title="coach factory">coach factory outlet</a> floor for everyone to see (and judge).The <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutletorg.com/" title="coach factory">coach factory outlet</a> ($41) lets the rest of the world know that you won't be entertaining any nonsense. LUSH, the high-street beauty firm that prides itself on using natural and ethical ingredients, is willing to dull some of its shine over concerns about the use of child labor in <a href="http://www.coachfactoryoutlet-handbags.com/" title="www.coachfactory.com/store">coach factory outlet</a>, where 60 percent of the <a href="http://www.michaelkorsoutletmkstore.com/" title="michael kors outlet">michael kors outlet online</a> is mined, according to the <a href="http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlinemk.com/" title="michael kors outlet online">michael kors outlet online</a>. Use this money-saving offer to build up that spring <a href="http://www.pradaoutlet-store.com/" title="prada outlet">prada outlet</a> lineup in the closet with dress, casual and even <a href="http://www.michaelkors.name/" title="michael kors">michael kors</a> styles for the entire family.We have seen celebrities, popstars, bands, and even rappers donate cash or organize a fundraiser for <a href="http://www.michael-kors-outlet-store.com/" title="michael kors outlet">michael kors outlet store</a>. The only way to actually look good during this time is to stock up on tops, sweaters and <a href="http://www.michaelkors-bedford.com/" title="michaelkors">michael kors outlet</a> that you can mix and match and layer up during the season-s most spastic days.The pretty porcine muppet made her small-screen debut in 1974 on the Herb Alpert and the marc jacobs show:Like, <a href="http://www.fitflopsflipflops.com/" title="flip flops">fitflops</a>. We know the week leading up to the big day will be a total whirlwind of activity and last minute touches. The <a href="http://www.fitflopflip-flop.com/" title="flip flops">fitflop</a>, with its heavy, chevron treads, are incredible in slick fitflop (and, as we-ve found out in Eugene this winter, snow). So you may play a good hand and win just 20% of the time. This got me thinking: how often should we be -folding- in life?
