Happy Friday everyone! It always makes me giggle how so many people look forward to Fridays because it means the weekend the next day. We have nothing like that in this house since we both work Saturdays.
But I digress. It’s time for another revenue share website to focus on. This one is called Wizzley, and is one of the newer ones on the web.
I’ve written at the site for the last three years, and found it extremely enjoyable. It’s not my most profitable one, though. Like HubPages, some of that has certainly been due to the type of topics that I cover.
So, it’s time to look at the different ways to make money writing online at Wizzley.
Google AdSense or Chitika: You Decide
One of the major benefits is writers don’t need Google AdSense to make money writing online at Wizzley. It is possible to use Chitika ads for revenue share. It is either one or the other, so if you have access to both you will need to choose which one will work out best for you. Since all other sites run through AdSense, I’ve chosen to stick with AdSense for now.
Chitika is considered easier to sign up for than AdSense, and works in the same way. On Wizzley, you simply add your username for the ad accounts into the settings page. Wizzley does all the rest for you. When you go onto your articles, ads will appear around them.
To start with 50% of the time your ads will show, and 50% of the time Wizzley’s ad code will show. After you’ve written 50 articles, you get 55% of the revenue share. After 100 articles, you get the maximum 60% of the share.
Amazon, Zazzle and More
Affiliate links are allowed on Wizzley, so you can make money writing online that way. There are a few options when it comes to affiliate links. You can opt for Amazon, Zazzle and AllPosters separately. Zazzle is becoming a favorite for users on the site because you can also create your own products to match your articles. I’ve never tried AllPosters, so I can’t comment on that.
Another option is to sign up to VigiLink. This affiliate program gives you access to so many different companies. You can get affiliate income from eBay, Kidswatch and The New York Times Store.
Affiliate marketing is how most people are successful writing at Wizzley. I’ve only seen minimal success because I’ve struggled to make affiliate marketing work. However, I keep trying and know that one day I’ll get it.
Focus on Quality Not Quantity
To make money writing online at Wizzley, you need to focus on quality work and not quantity. The first five articles are checked by humans to make sure the articles are not too sales-like and offer interesting, engaging and unique information compared to everything else online. Once you get through your first five articles, you are allowed do-follow links.
The links could work out in your favor for your other websites and blogs. Link to other content that is relevant to the information you’re supplying, or offers that you have on your own site. Excessive advertising is not allowed, but the odd link here or there will be accepted.
Would this sound like an option to make money writing online? How about just as a way to create back links to your own blogs? It is continually rising in rank with Google, so it is certainly one to keep an eye on.

I didnt even know there was so many ways to make money writing! Thanks for this info…
You’re welcome. Enjoy checking them out.
All these money making schemes sound very tempting!
Maybe there are a few sites that would work for you. I know Hubpages allows fiction writing. I think Writedge and Daily Two Cents allows it too.
The schemes don’t tempt me at all. The more I read about them, the more I decide they’re not for me. I enjoy writing my daily blog. Any spare time is used on my novels. Thanks for showing me what I DON’T want to pursue.
You’re welcome, Francene. They’re certainly not for everyone and if you’re happy with your own daily blog and novels, then stick with that 🙂
Didn’t realise how many sites there are like this. That can be great news for some writers. Each to their own … writers are a diverse bunch. Your reviews help people decide which ones to focus on and which to avoid. Good job.
There are so many, but they’re certainly not for everyone. I like them for various reasons, but I still love having my own blogs.
Thanks so much for the post. I am always looking for new platforms to write on and to grow my online presence. I find taking those first action steps is where I get stuck, but the info in your post is so helpful. Thanks and looking forward to reading more of your writing!
You’re welcome. I hope you find some sites that work out for you.
Alexandria, good, informative, tempting … BUT – I have to admit, I feel like Swiss cheese – there are so many holes in my knowledge of what you are talking about. Perhaps I missed an earlier post which actually explains the whole notion of blogging online for income: the terminology and how exactly it works. And if not, perhaps you could write one for all of us newbies??? Thanks heaps, I for one would love it! HUGS <3
Judy, this has certainly been based on previous blog posts that I’ve shared. My blog has been running for almost two years now. You bring up a great point, though, and I certainly need to look back through old posts and find which ones need repurposing or linking back to.
How long would you say it would take to make money with Wizzley? I’m all about my blogs and other writing, but a couple extra dollars wouldn’t hurt : )
It really does depend on the topic and the way that you make money. Those who rely purely on the ad clicks need a lot of content on the site. But those who make money with affiliate links tend to be successful very quickly.
You are a wealth of information! 🙂 It’s great that you’re reviewing and sharing this information with your readers.
Thanks, Cynthia. I hope it helps people who are looking for 2.0 sites.
I never got round to trying out this site. Good for you 🙂
It was one that took me a while to actually try once I signed up. But I’m glad that I did now 🙂 Thanks.
I have heard a lot of good things about Wizzly for sure. A lot of Squidoo friends use the site.
There have been a lot of Squidoo writers turning up lately. They’ve all been welcomed with open arms on the forum, too. 🙂
