Which has better ROI – to produce content to your blogs or to revenue sharing sites?

When you are starting and don’t know what to do to make your money, you’ll listen many things and “tips”. One of them is about writing content to revenue sharing sites. One revenue sharing site is a website where you can publish your own content and make some money according to revenue that website gets. So if you write 100 texts for one website and they earn $1000 from advertising, affiliate programs etc. so you will receive part of that money.



It sounds good, because those websites get more visitors monthly, but in practice, it doesn’t mean your content will get more visitors automatically – in other words, you’ll need work to get traffic, in the end.



Two old and popular revenue sharing websites are HubPages and Squidoo. Some years ago, Squidoo started to have some difficulties to control content quality and, later, was sold to HubPages. HubPages has a stronger quality control process and I guess it helped them to keep in the business. But it means it’s more difficult to get your articles published (and they work with English content only), so in the end, I prefer to publish my articles in my own websites. It has returned me a better ROI, at least until now.



But, if you don’t want to spend money with domain registration and hosting, you can create some web 2.0 properties (like blogger.com) and make money from there. It will may have less traffic and consequently to get less money, but you’ll avoid expenses in your first affiliate/blogger steps.
