I’ve had a Bukisa account since the site first launched. I haven’t made a whole heap of money but I’ve made several payouts and most of that is passive as I haven’t spent a lot of time there since the first month or two.
How much can you make on Bukisa?
I’ve made $148 since early 2009 with about $99.00 coming from my own content. I really only put up content (51 articles) in the first few months and have done very little since then.
Up until now, Bukisa has run on the Bukisa Index, a fee for every 1000 page views. I recently discovered that Bukisa was changing to a Google Adsense revenue model.
Bukisa Google Revenue Sharing – Good or Bad?
I think the Google revenue share is, for me, better.
- I have an established Google account.
- I have a successful track record of making money with Google Adsense.
- I have articles on decent high-paying topics.
Those who aren’t happy with this tend to be those who haven’t yet discovered how to profit from Google Adsense or those who don’t have a Google Adsense account.
If you’re not yet an Adsense publisher, you’ve got until the end of January 2011 before the Bukisa Index ceases to exist. If you’re reading this in December, you do have time to act so that you can transition into the program. I’ll post next on how to get approved for Google Adsense. If you’re reading this after the Index has stopped paying out, you can get approved for Google Adsense within several weeks — if you do it right.
If you haven’t yet joined Bukisa, feel free to join so you can make money writing for Bukisa.
For more info for members, visit the Bukisa Google announcement when logged into your account. (If you’re not a member, join using the banner in this post). It’s easy to link your Bukisa account to your Google account and you can add Bukisa as a URL channel to your Adsense reporting so you can see where your earnings are coming from.
How will this affect Bukisa referral earnings?
If you’re trying to make money from home, you should look for as many passive income streams as possible. You should also look for some ways to socially promote your passive income efforts. I’ve recently learned about Xomba which seems to provide a great way to do both.
Make Money From Home Through Xomba
Xomba is a site I recently joined that has a few benefits. First, it shares Google Adsense with you 50/50. Second, it pays you an additional 10% of revenue through referrals. Third, it provides a great way to showcase other work of yours online. You can write Xombytes (articles) or Xomblurbs (social bookmarks) that can bring you traffic to your other revenue-generating sites. I’ve only been dabbling for a bit but am already getting some page impressions. Check out Xomba here. Don’t be afraid to sign up through a referral code as you won’t lose any of your earnings and after you’ve signed up, you can refer others and earn from their contributions.
The more passive income streams, the better and again, this site does two things for you because you can socially bookmark your online articles such as: your Bukisa articles, your eHow articles as well as promote your other online work as well.
If you like to write articles, you can make some decent income at it. My friend Maria makes about $1,500 a month on eHow. I’m not in the U.S. so can’t participate in eHow yet (I’m hopeful they’ll some day change that!) but I have other programs I do participate in such as:
Bukisa wants your how to articles and videos and you’ll make $3.95 per 1000 page views. I started with this site in October and have already hit payout.
I’m still learning about Yuwie but there’s lots to do in this social community so I’m checking it out. Not only do you get paid page views for things people do on your pages but for your own pages as well. The only downside I see so far is a LOT of ads to sift through and this comes up sometimes when I want to do something so having to bypass ads is slightly annoying.
InfoBarrel is a lot like Bukisa or eHow but the site offers Adsense revenue sharing instead of per page view rates so this looks like it has the same type of potential as eHow which means you can make a lot of money. You can also see how much money you’ll make because you track it through your own Adsense account.
Making money through passive income streams works great because you can write something today that pays you indefinitely. In 2006 I wrote an article about a particular topic on a shared revenue site and it went viral and is still paying me about $30 a month via Google Adsense almost 3 years later!
If you’re looking for extra ways to make passive income, sites that offer revenue sharing for articles can be very lucrative. An article you write once in a span of fifteen payments could pay you dividends monthly for an indefinite period of time. Instead of selling an article once, you could earn a more money this way!
Last month I started submitting articles to Bukisa. Here is my one month Bukisa earning update.
