The updated ranking so far of writing site based on reputable online sources

UGC?!

User-generated content (UGC) is defined as "any form of content such as blogs, wikis, discussion forums, posts, chats, tweets, podcasting, pins, digital images, video, audio files, and other forms of media that was created by users of an online system or service, often made available via social media websites".
-Wikipedia

Content Writer

Be guided that even content writer are mostly the minds behind written conent found on-line. they are quite different from the regular who proliferated the social network. content writer as defined by education-portal.com "are professional writer who produce engaging content for use over the internet... They're internet- savvy individuals who creat artcles, blog and other forms of written Web materials. Continue readng to learn what content writers do, how they prepare for a career in the professin and hw much can they earn on the job." Do just identify ourselves if we fit into this shoes.

AD REVENUE SITES


To everyone who are interested on the playing field we are in. The "ad revenue sites" listed is quite different from the "traditional" paying up front sites though some evolved as Hybrid between ad revenue and 50% share ( i.e Bubblews). The following are the top 30 "writing" sites I was able to search in my limited time. Others are new yet have impressive numbers, some are old and Reinvented themselves over the years. Some are complete copycats and worth mentioning however they don;t have enough data as of this writing. Hope this will help you in some way or another for you to stay or have a preview on what's up there on the other fence. So without further ado here they are: (drums roll)

I must be grateful for having spared time to research on different sites. I started on Triond and I've left it, because of their continual flaws. I quite liked it, but it took me quite a while to get payment. On Bublews.com I was simply cheated after a short period and I never received my first payment of 35 dollars. EC proved well at the bebinning till they stopped payment because of lack of traffic. Now they're back on track and payment, but I had few minor problems with them. At present, I'm only with Wikinut.com and, although, it works pretty well for me, I'm searching for another so as not to have all my eggs in one basket. Cheers!

Well said Vickylass! The "industry is still evolving finding a niche for those fell below the "content writing" standard. Though some are old enough to be around close to 2 decades most sites haven't learned from the mistakes of others

Great post. The only site that paid 'real money' for almost 2 years to me is Bubblews.com. But this site has now stopped payments of any magnitude and frankly no other site pays any 'good ' money.So one wites just for pleasure as their is no money in writing on any site including Wikinut which has so far paid me GBP 80, which is pittanc eto hundreds of $ which I recieved from Bubblews. My post on Bubblewshttp://www.wikinut.com/looking-at-bubblews-in-perspective/1_1-gsxq/30twc0d8/ can be read.

I came back because, it is sad that for Trinity.com, just one dollar for so many views, wow, amazing. I really miss associatecontent/yahoo contributor with them, per 1,000 views you got paid from $1-2, depending on which cloud level you had. Thank you for sharing this information again.

Trinity is one of the forefathers and sister-site of another existing web domain. Please reread agan the 3million is global rank, sadly its daily views is only about 300 only as per weboutlook stated..that explained the rank.
