    eHow

    eHow is a great website that allows you to publish How-To Articles and make some decent money, while getting great exposure for your sites at the same time! It takes a minute or two to sign-up and configure everything and you can start earning money from your articles immediately.

    I believe that, at the moment, they only pay people from the United States.
    They also only pay via PayPal.

    I personally don't put very much effort into publishing things on eHow, but even so I still end up getting a lot of visitors, a decent stream of income considering the minimal effort and new referrals to programs and affiliate networks.

    Here are two articles I recently published:
    How to Produce an Online Income for Free | eHow.com
    How to Produce Money Online | eHow.com

    If you take it seriously and write some good articles and try networking with other eHow members, the potential for profit is definitely there. I recommend checking it out. If you are a member of eHow, share your articles here!

    My question is simple. What is to stop people from going to a website such as Instructables, and creating an account. What's to stop them at that point from copying a how-to word for word out of Instructables into a Word document. And at that point, what is to stop them from changing a lot of the wording around, and submitting it to eHow. Cash.

    I didn't put question marks after my questions because, well, I think I jsut came up with a nice little blackhat method.

    Good idea, Razorloq.

    As long as the content is unique enough to pass something like Copyscape, I highly doubt anything will go wrong.
    Maybe I'll test this out... xD

    Could you be more specific, bogart?

    Sure. How many referrals are you getting from the ehow articles?

    21 level 1 referrals, 3 level 2 referrals for a traffic exchange.
    6 referrals for a GPT site.
    2 referrals for an affiliate network.

    Lots of traffic to my website which I listed in "Resources."

    Another great tip that I have found is to have an account at Clickbank and post your hop link as a resource at the bottom of each eHow you create! This way, you're not only making money through the site, but there's the possibility for conversions with Clickbank as well. It's also a good resource because, if your hop link is related to your topic, the leads are targeted somewhat!

    I've never used eHow. I didn't know they let you include affiliate links. That's pretty awesome. You could also try your Clickbank tactic above, but include membership products that offer a recurring commission. So that way you get paid every month for each subscriber instead of just once.

    This site is helpful only for United States people but what about others. I think it should be open for everybody.
