Inquisitr Review: A News Site That Pays

Things have changed a lot since I wrote this first Inquisitr review. I’ve added some updates at the bottom of this piece. A change in July 2017 was so big that it called for a new review post. You can find this newer post here.

This review will share why I used to highly recommend Inquisitr to writers but some of the changes that led to the bigger July 2017 update.

Inquisitr review

As you know, I like to share reviews of websites that I contribute to. Inquisitr is just one of them, and I currently have 300+ articles on the site, having been writing there for just over a year.

With that in mind, I thought now was the time to really share my Inquisitr review, and let you know whether I recommend it.

Please note that this review is my own experience with the site. It is an honest review, and that doesn’t always mean lots of positives are shared!

I started at Inquisitr when I wanted to replace my Guardian Liberty Voice income, because that site was going down. I’ve replaced it and more!

Write About Anything You Like

As long as it’s news related, you can write about anything you like. When I started, I covered a variety of topics, ranging from general entertainment to UK news; whatever really took my fancy.

While the income was okay, it’s only been recently that I’ve been able to make a sustainable income from the site. Some of that is from old articles. Every week I see older pieces getting views. But a lot of it is from current pieces that I write; on topics that people are really passionate about.

This is the site where I learned about a niche that I’d never really considered in the past. So, now I focus on TV shows. It’s a niche I’m passionate about and people love to read.

Duplication Policy in Place

You’re really not limited with the site, except for create duplicate articles. I actually find the duplicate policy a great one, because it stops a lot of people writing on exactly the same piece of news. Great writers will be able to find a different angle on a story, rather than step on each other’s toes.

The first person to claim a topic gets to write it, but they do have a four-hour window. They need to actively work on the article, rather than claiming it just for the sake of claiming it. They can also only claim one article at a time.

There can be a downside to this at times. There are a few people who write on the same TV shows as me. I have to make sure I’m the first to claim the topic when the news comes out, or I make sure I find a different angle. It’s not that difficult, but takes some time thinking. It’s worth it when the two articles can complement each other.

It is possible to raise a complaint if someone has duplicated a story. People do check this, but there are limitations to it. I’ve once been pulled up when my story was completely different in the body. It was just the title that was similar, and that was by accident because the article hadn’t shown up in the search result.writing site review

This duplication policy can be a little annoying if you really want to cover a story for your own following. You need to get on the site quickly to claim something when you see it, and it could be too late by just a minute! There are times that being in the GMT time zone can be useful, but times that it really hinders my capabilities since there are some writers in the EST and PST time zones.

A Team to Improve Your Performance

Inquisitr pays at least $15 per article, but you can make much more than that on a weekly basis. There have been times that I’ve been paid $500 on just five articles written in a week!

The team wants your performance to be great. After all, that helps the site overall. That means there are always people there to help you improve it.

It’s because of this that I’ve managed to find a niche I’d never considered and build my income considerably. I’ve also been able to use my articles for samples to get other writing jobs. You won’t just get help finding a niche, but also on SEO, writing, linking and much more.

You’re encouraged to get in touch with the team to improve your performance if it is low. Sometimes, if it’s just due to being a bit stagnant in the number of articles you write, you may have someone get in touch with you. Last week I had that. I’ve written 7-10 articles a week consistently now for a while, and my income has remained steady that whole time. I had someone get in touch to let me know that there is potential to earn more by writing more (now someone just find me more hours in the day!)

Weekly Pay on Time

You get paid weekly, which is so much better than some sites. I don’t rely on this income, but I can usually factor it into things if I really need to.

Payment is always on time on a Tuesday morning. Sometimes it comes in the Wednesday (the official day we’re supposed to get paid). We’ll always get an alert when it is going to be the Wednesday instead or if there is a problem with pay.

This really is a site that respects its writers, knowing that it’s the writers that bring in the readers.

This may not sound like a lot, and it isn’t for many writers. The benefit is that your earning opportunities are endless. As I said, for five articles I was paid $500+ one week. The extra income is based on your views.

How does the pay work? For each 2,000 average views you get $12 per article. Get 4,000 average views, you get $24. Get 6,000 average views, you get $36 per article. And so on. There are other bonuses available.

Initial Intern Period

There is an initial period where you will be an intern. This is paid, and it’s a chance to make sure you’re happy working with the site and can follow the guidelines. It’s also a chance for you to ask your questions and find out more about your earning potential.

You’re paid a set rate. When I did it, it was $10 per piece, but it may have gone up to $15 per piece now. You’ve got 4-8 weeks to complete, and you need to write 40 articles within that time. You can do up to 10 per week, but need to at least do three (that’s the bare minimum for the site on a weekly basis anyway).

I didn’t mind it. Really, it’s like being a member of the site on a trial basis. I used it as a chance to find out what type of articles would work, what I really enjoyed writing about and what type of content other people wrote about.

Overall, this is a site that I enjoy writing at, and financially I’ve found it worthwhile. It doesn’t take too long for me to create one piece, so my hourly rate is also reasonable. There are downsides, but that comes with all sites. The duplication policy is one of the trickiest to get around but a great writer will never need to duplicate an article!

I hope my Inquisitr review has been helpful for you. Have you tried Inquisitr? What do you think about the site? Please feel free to share your comments below.

Update: The views are currently low on the site. I’m just getting the minimum and have been for a while. Many news sites have reportedly been hit by Google News algorithm changes in January 2017. I am trying various actions to see if I can raise the average views, but so far nothing is working.

Update 2: The payment model saw a change in summer 2016. There were also complaints of the minimum views writers had to make. The views for the site overall never increased, despite other sites that I write at constantly seeing improvements in monthly views. The most recent changes have warranted a whole new Inquisitr review.

  1. Thanks for posting this, Alexandria. I’m in the middle of my internship right now with Inquisitr and loving it! The funny thing is, I already loved reading Inquisitr. Love the site!
    They’re requiring 30 articles for the internship now, and I’ve done 13. It’s a lot to learn, with the links and tags and SEO, plus following the rules for images, citing sources, etc. But I’m learning and improving.
    The editorial staff has been amazing! They’ve been great about answering my questions in ways that make sense. A very dear friend of mine has just written her 30th article and she got an email telling her not to write anymore until they do her evaluation. She’s pretty nervous, as am I!
    Do you know how often they keep interns? Is there a rough percentage rate of the number of interns who are kept on to continue writing? We’re both really hoping we’ll be able to stay on and continue to write. It’s just those stats that are taking a little time to increase.
    My articles are averaging 1300 visits per week, and I know they want 1800. I’m hoping the rest of my internship will allow me the time to improve my stats.
    Any advice? Thanks!

    1. Thanks for the updated information, Donna. 30 isn’t so bad, glad to hear you’re almost half way through. I had heard that the minimum average views per week was 1,800 but I’ve never actually heard that from Inquisitr, so thank you for sharing that. If you get a good topic, it’s not that hard to consistently get that and more. I aim for an average of at least 2,400 per week, and usually get at least 3,000.

      I can’t answer the questions you have though, unfortunately. Interns are kept if they meet the Inq standards. I think they may be lenient on the views to start with, because there is a team to help improve them. I also found that it took a good month or two to really start seeing the views go up. Now that I’ve been there a year, my old articles will bring in some views to help.

  2. Thanks for replying, Alexandria. I’ll be looking out for your articles. 🙂
    I’m really enjoying my internship and hoping I’ll be able to stay on with them. I had someone on their staff meet with me online and discuss some things I can do to improve, and that was really helpful. Things I was mostly taught at the beginning I’m sure, but that have started to make more sense now that I’m applying them.
    Again, thanks for the reply. Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi, Alexandria,

    Thanks for your post. I just completed the 17th article for my Inquisitr internship, and I’m quite concerned I’m not going to get hired full-time. I’m a long-time journalist who has worked with WordPress before, so getting up to speed with links and photos was not problem. However, I still haven’t found a consistent niche to make the quota each week. After a rough start, I thought I’d turned the corner last week when I finally brought in over 10,000 hits for three articles, which pulled my total average up to 1,600. But this week, I pulled in less than half that for four articles. So now I’m back down to a 1,350 or so average. The kicker is that I wrote on the same subjects that did well for me last week, and they indexed well. I don’t get what I’m doing wrong.

    Like you, I’ve been steered into covering TV by the Inquisitr team, which is a great match for me if I could figure out how to be consistent. I’ve met with team members to learn better SEO and carefully followed all the tips, which resulted in a great week and then another bad week.

    Did you find your groove early on? I feel like I’m slow to pick this up. I really like this job and, more than that, I really need this job (I have a chronically ill family member I need to stay home with). I was so hopeful it would work out, but I’m feeling pretty frustrated with my (lack) of progress.

    By the way, what do you think of the pay scale changes at Inquisitr?

    Thank you for your time!

    1. It’s a tricky one with the views. I have weeks that are great and weeks that are poor. I’ve was chatting with one of the SEO guys last week and said how difficult it could be. This time of year, the site tends to see a dip in traffic. I’m trying to hold on for the start of the fall. This week also saw a problem with Google indexing, I’m sure you know from emails being sent out.

      The TV show niche is starting to become saturated now. You need to find a unique take on it. That’s what I’ve been doing recently to help take a step away from everyone else and avoid any accidental duplicate content. Unfortunately (and I don’t mean this as a dig, it looks like Inq is starting to become guilty of it by pushing writers in certain directions) copycats arise. when they see people doing something good, they jump on the bandwagon and it makes it difficult for all to get views and earn. I’ve read some posts from writers on the site who make it clear they haven’t watched the shows they’re writing about. that’s not the way to interact with the fans!

      It was a lot easier when I started. The pay structure has changed considerably since I joined. I’m not too sure I’d recommend it as highly anymore. But I actually don’t really like the whole minimum pay as much as some others. Before that happened, I was getting considerably higher views each week. Now I’m having to look at my daily views each day to play the system. But pay systems have to change to keep the sites afloat. I just don’t like the threat of being fired for having a couple of bad weeks that are often out of our control.

      1. Thanks for your reply. Yes, I looked at the Inq’s numbers on Alexa and they’re dipping. The pay scale change happened the week after my internship started, so I had a bad feeling. I actually have a lengthy history in TV journalism (which Inq doesn’t even know), so I didn’t fight too hard when they pushed me to TV. However, I had initially wanted to cover some general news and crime and that’s what I did. When that didn’t go gangbusters right away and one of my experimental TV articles did well, they pushed me into TV. But TV has been extremely hit or miss. I have done pairs of articles on several subjects where one did great and the second one died. No rhyme or reason. And everytime I suggest another topic, my SEO person says, “That doesn’t do well.” Well, TV isn’t doing well enough to get me hired either!

        The Google indexing problem ate what I think might have been a good article for me last week, too. Views went up for two straight days after Tuesday, when it didn’t index at all for 10 hours. But it wasn’t enough to recover. Didn’t help that another writer wrote the exact same piece 24 hours later that got Featured on the site.

        Anyway, I have no idea what I will write next week. I have 13 articles to save myself and I don’t know if it’s possible, especially knowing that it’s just an overall down time for the site. I write for several clients and sites, but I really want to add this one. It would really help me. But it’s not looking good right now, and I’m so disappointed. (Although, from the sounds of it, all I have to look forward to if I do get hired is a quick firing if I have a couple bad weeks. Maybe it’s stress I don’t need.)

        Thank you again for your insights.

  4. Hi Alexandria! Your article was very informative. I am struggling through my internship now, having just completed my first week with only 2,819 views for my three articles. Can you share any tips for bumping up my page views? I already share my articles on Twitter. Whether anyone else does, I do not know and I have no real control over that. I try to pick late headline things to write about, as I don’t find their keyword tool to be of any help to me in coming up with something that I can actually take an interest in writing. I want this to work out, but I definitely need to up the views. Someone has already contacted me for a chat meeting tomorrow to discuss doing that – I don’t know if that’s a really bad thing or not. Either way, I would love to hear your own ways for addressing this issue. Thank you for any help.

    1. Hi Cathy. I’m not really sure how to help you, to be honest. I’ve found Twitter isn’t the best for getting things shared, but I do use Facebook groups a lot. Definitely discuss things with whoever wanted the meeting. This is usually a meeting with one of the SEO guys to figure out ways that you can improve. I’ve actually found that focusing on a news niche has helped with my views and I’ve also gotten lucky recently with a few viral stories.

  5. Hi Alexandria,

    Long time Inquisitr person here. Loved your review. Inquisitr can be a mixed bag, and God knows I’ve gone through my ups and downs with the website. I used to be on the social media team before they automated us. My all-time high earning week was $2,600. Yes, week. Unfortunately, that was well over a year ago. Since we fell out with Yahoo, things haven’t been that good, but they are still better than other sites of their ilk. Example: they pay you on views for the LIFE of the article. That’s a good deal. Their editorial team also seems to have pulled their head out. Downside, and this is major for me since I used to be one of the top earners: they have brought on hundreds of writers without growing the traffic pie. Means they’re paying less for content, but the people at the top are still doing as well as they ever did. I guess you can’t fault them for that. It’s business after all. But when you’ve been with them since 2013 and seen way more lucrative earnings eras, it’s a little depressing. I have to keep reminding myself there are upsides.

    1. Hi Aric,

      Thank you for your full insights. That’s really interesting how your income plummeted but you’re still going. I’m one of those who has recently seen an increase in views and income. I do tend to play the system a little. Yes, as you say the views are for the LIFE of the article, which is so important as a writer. I’ve got a review of another site coming up and that isn’t going to be anywhere near as positive as Inquisitr partially because the views are only for 30 days. I’m starting to get a love/hate relationship with it. There are weeks I adore it and weeks I can’t stand it because I just can’t seem to replicate anything.

      I do hope you see your earnings shoot back up at some point. Maybe not so possible without the social media side but I do hope for you.

  6. Hi
    After seeing your review, I joined them and I went on with my initial test. Unfortunately, I am unable to pass the test as I have received only 60% correct and they need 70% correct answers to qualify further.

    So please let me know on this I.e failing in this test means we won’t get any response from them for internship.

    1. Hi,

      I was trying to find the emails that I was sent way back when I applied. I couldn’t find them so I can’t answer the question as to what it was like when I applied. It’s too long ago now to remember. I know there have been some changes, so I couldn’t answer honestly. You should have information in the email with the test link as to what would happen regarding a pass or fail.

      Kind regards,

  7. Hi! I applied for Inquisitr and passed the exam with 70% rating. Do they cater applicants with a higher rating? and how long does it take for someone to respond on my application? is there someone I can ask for any update regarding my application? Sorry, lots of questions. Thanks 🙂

    1. I can’t answer your questions. What I know is in the blog post, as things have changed since I went through the application process. The best thing I can suggest is looking through the emails that you received before the test to see what the information there says.

  8. Hey,

    I’ve been writing for Inquisitr since Feb 2016. The site is amazing in all aspects, great team and a lot of freedom, and the pay was always good – until January when Google began to make changes.

    My earnings prior to the Google algorithm were averaging at $600-700 per week. Twice in November, I was hitting $1,200-$1,500, which was great, of course.

    Since January, however, I have been hitting no more than $300 a week, and that’s usually with around 25 articles in mind. It’s a little discouraging, especially since the team has already mentioned they don’t know when Google is going to get back on track with these changes they’ve made. Apparently, all news site were hit with the algorithm update and Inquisitr dropped 12 million views because of it.

    I’m trying to figure things out because I had enjoyed making this my full-time living and pretty much relied on this after moving to the US.

    The earnings are less but the bills still have to be paid. Haha. It’s depressing, I’ll say that. I’m hopeful it’ll get back to what it was prior to the changes I noticed from January.

  9. Hi, Alexandria,

    Just updating my post from last year. I did make it through my internship and got hired. With the exception of one week, I was able to keep my numbers high enough to get paid every week. Some weeks I made $200 – $300, some only the minimum of $36 for three articles, but the articles didn’t take me long, and I write for a few places, so I just kept chugging along.

    Until the new Google algorithm. Oh, my God.

    In February, my numbers started dipping. Not enough to kill me, but enough to scare me. Then came March. Previously reliable topics would no longer index, and articles would just sink to the bottom of the pile, never to be heard from again. I went three weeks without being paid. I was about to quit, or be fired, and then one of my articles suddenly went viral, saving my week (and month).

    I would love to be encouraged by the comeback article, but with Google sucking up and spitting out stories, I don’t know what to do. It was pure luck that one article went viral. I’ve been sitting here today trying to work out a strategy, but it’s pretty damn hard when all the things I was taught to do in my internship, and all the things that were working for me for months, seem to have no impact right now.

    And I’d like to write 10 articles a week to make sure I get minimum pay, but I don’t think I can come anywhere close to making the required average if I spread it over 10 articles, you know? Right now, I have one bread and butter subject, but I can’t carry 10 articles on it. In fact, some weeks, I’d get paid considerably less by writing more because writing more drops your average.

    I wish there was a place for Inquisitr writers to strategize with this new algorithm. LOL

    Good luck, everyone!


    1. Hey,

      what algorithm update you were referring? i.e was it related to google news top stories?

      if so, let me know, same happened with blasting news and since February, google stopped crawling Top stories frequently unlike it was earlier.

      However, let me know what algorithm you were referring

    2. I find the exact same problem since this Google News update. I do always get the minimum for the three and sometimes a little more but it’s nothing like it used to be again. And it’s frustrating when it’s nothing that I’m doing but the site as a whole. I don’t have it in me to write 10 when I can’t guarantee getting the minimum average spread across.

      1. So you mean in BN, after google news update, you no longer receive traffic?

        as per me, as they don’t have direct traffic. the only way is via social or search. social is highly difficult and I won’t believe in such unless we have some viral pages.

        The only way is via search and I don’t understand why google doing like this for news sites also?
        i.e if google is really great then it should stop retrieving date based on domain authority and age, then true power knows and one who writes first on a topic should be shown. Instead of doing this, google still wants to play with the people.

        I actually thought there is a good life in BN and google has taken it away by stopping the crawls and BN made even worse by reducing pay for rest of the world traffic.

        one of the disappointing things.

        1. This is about Inquisitr.

          Google is a law unto itself. Writers aren’t Google’s customers. The people who actually do the searching are, so the algorithm is set up to give them the best results. If websites want to keep showing up, they need to make changes.

          Like I said in the Blasting News review, I don’t rate the site that highly. I never really have.

  10. Great review, Alexandria. In your opinion, is Inquistr doable for someone who is just looking to write on the side? I’m a former print journalist turned PR pro, so this would be supplmental income and a glorified hobby. I scored 100 percent on their entry test, but I’m just concerned the demands would be too time-consuming for a guy looking to push out a few articles a week. Thoughts?

    1. There’s a minimum of 3 a week that you need to do. Right now I do 3-4 a week, because of time constraints and the low views coming through (especially with the way the Inq average view for pay is set up). So if you wanted to just do 3 a week, it’s possible.

  11. I am a writer for Inquisitr, I started late 2016. I read your post wondering what I am doing wrong… until I got to the updated last paragraph, and comments! Egads! This Google thing has really screwed us. Can you recommend any strategies, or other sites that pay better? (I write mostly in news/politics.)

    1. Oh I’ve had the worst week ever with posts. I’m really not sure it’s worth it anymore. With the reduced word count now it might be. I wish I could give you some tips, but I’m struggling too and Inquisitr is one of a handful of sites in Google news that I write at struggling.

  12. I’m considering applying but am a bit hesitant. What’s the word count for each post, and do you get the $15 as a base pay rate regardless of wehther your article gets views?

    1. The model have changed over the weekend, so I’ll be creating an update to this very soon. There’s no longer a guaranteed base rate.

      1. Wow, I look forward to your post, then. I’m being reminded I need to send a sample article, but I’m not sure it’s worth it any more if I can’t even make a guaranteed minimum.

  13. Hi Alexandria,

    I have been with the Inquisitr for a while now and am so thankful I came across this article! My views last year were great and I could put out 3-6 articles a week and make enough money to pay the bills. Now, I am doing 10 articles a week just to hit the minimum and am wondering if it is really worth it since it is such a struggle to pay all my bills now. However, where else can you go to write, you know? I am so relieved it is not just me who is dropping in views though, I couldn’t work out what on earth I was doing wrong.

    1. It’s definitely not you, Rachel. The site’s views have been dropping over the last year or so, but January saw a massive drop. I try to cover reviews on all the sites that I write at or have contributed to at some point.

  14. Hello,

    Been writing for the Inquisitr since the second half of 2016, and at this point, I am seriously doubting whether I could last one year for the company. And it’s all on account of the recent changes to the pay scale, which, to sum up, mean 1 point per 1,000 total views, $5 per point for those with less than a hundred. Anyone who wants to do the math can take it from there.

    At first, the changes appear to be music to the ears of anyone who doesn’t like writing about reality TV or soap operas, which are pretty much the only general topics that do well these days. Certain niche categories have been incentivized, with 5 points each for anyone who writes among the top 3 viewed articles in those categories. But if you take the aforementioned basics into account, there’s a good chance that anyone who’s having a particularly bad week may end up earning just $50 for 15 to 20 articles, instead of $225 to $300.

    Honestly speaking, I wouldn’t have minded if they reduced the basic pay per article to something like $10-12, given that they reduced the words requirement. But this seems to be Inquisitr’s way of saying, “the news business is in dire straits thanks to the eggheads at Google, so we might have to cut your pay.” Worse, they didn’t even give us a couple weeks or so to prepare — the changes were literally announced the afternoon before they took effect.

    At this point, I am seriously considering dialing down my contributions at Inquisitr, possibly returning to blog-style articles, or maybe writing listicles for somebody else. I can’t say I blame them for making the changes, but I would have appreciated a week or two advanced warning, instead of one day. And preferred a simple pay reduction, because even if you do well and get something like 50,000 views for, say, 25 articles, that’s still $250 unless one of your articles topped a certain one of the select incentivized categories.

    1. It’s a difficult one. For some writers, the changes are going to be good. I wrote the three a week and made the $12 per article each week. I wrote one last week and ended up with a little more money for less work. But if you were constantly writing 10 or more, then you will certainly see a big pay cut. The benefit is no fear of getting dropped for not getting minimum average views. That was a PITA considering views aren’t always the fault of the writer!

  15. So, with all those things in mind, is it even worth applying as a new writer anymore? Can I even make a residual income each week?

    1. Sorry, replying from my phone and not logged into the site.

      From what I can see it’s a trial and error thing with the site. I wrote one piece but most of my views came from articles I wrote past month or in May. So yesterday, there is a residual element still. A friend says she got a great paycheck last week for just writing the one piece. I’m going to give it a few weeks before I completely decide if I can recommend it or not.

  16. It was after your this review in 2016 that I applied for Inquisitr. Got selected, earned well. 🙂
    With Google acting up, the site has really suffered badly and with the new payment model, it is not even something one can depend on for some good reliable income. Whoever did point out about the new pay model change among writers, the Skype team are simply firing out a message that “you can try the model and if it does not work out for you then write somewhere else.”

    With the new payment model of POINTS, either you fall in the category of the writer who earned well or just $50 (even below this :O ) – there is no in-between anymore. Per day views (traffic) for the entire site has also dropped – I am taking that many writers have stopped contributing in good quantity. Noticed that many regular writers are now writing less number of articles. Even I used to write 10 articles per week, used to earn $150 for sure (earned like $500-$600 for most weeks) but since the point system is introduced my earnings dropped to a mere $30 – I wish I was lying!

    The topics which used to work before are not even doing any magic. Previously, one can even be sure that they will get the base payment but now, the new payment model speaks out loudly that their management team has also no idea what works on their site – it’s just trial and error. Yahoo! News does not source the articles/posts from Inquisitr due to some fall out and Google just pushes, even recently published articles, down in the pile. Crazy I know, but Blasting News articles are even topping Inquisitr’s articles currently on Google News. Not really suggesting to opt for BN over Inquisitr but atleast they provide a base pay.

    Just my suggestion, have backups for your income to pay monthly bills! 🙁

    1. Hey! I’m so happy to hear that my review was helpful for you initially. There have been a lot of changes lately and you point out so many of the downsides. I’m one of those who is just doing one a week right now. My earnings jump from between $25 and $40, but that’s around the same as they were when I just wrote three a week since January. Inquisitr is just a side gig for me to bring in a little money each week. I have never relied on it for monthly bills. I advocate private clients that you get through good ol’ email and marketing.

      1. Hello,

        Thanks for your reply. I did point out the downside because every new or old writer should know this and decide accordingly. There are hardly any upside with the new pay model. $5 for 1000 views are a long shot. The website does not get so much traffic that one can be sure that they will get paid for every writer they write. I have got my article quantity to one per week.
        I have got some private clients but am looking out for better opportunities. Any suggestions?

        1. Right now, I’d suggest sticking with private clients and growing that part of your business. Contributing to news sites is now mostly based on views. I’ve not found anything that will replace my private clients yet, unfortunately. Either they don’t have the following for good views or their pay just isn’t enough.

  17. I starting freelance writing last year. I did some work on Upwork for peanuts and also tried BN but couldn’t get much views. I was excited about Inquisitr till I read the reviews. I am starting my internship, just signed and met the team. I was really hoping to earn $200 a week. I hope I get the job after the internship. I still think it is better than BN, got some Sports articles on the front page on BN and earned almost nothing. I want to focus on soccer, your thoughts please.

    1. I’ve got to admit that I don’t recommend Inquisitr or any site similar for that type of money. The best bet is to find sports magazines and sites that look for regular content at a base rate or starting your own site with affiliate products/sponsored posts/etc. Relying on residual income through others’ sites is a dying method of making money online. Inquisitr’s views are extremely low.

  18. Hey Alexandria,

    Your review was really helpful! I notice a lot of discontent in the comment thread over the changed algorithm and pay structure. When I applied recently, I noticed that the pay structure is still the same ‘points’ based one. TBH, 5$ per 1000 views is a little discouraging. Could you please update your review from last year? It would really help me make an informed choice about getting on board with Inquisitr. Thanks!

    1. Hi! I have a few Inquisitr reviews on the site now. The latest one is about why I’ve quit.
