Second Part of this Article:

Make Money Online!!! Triond vs. Factoidz – Sites in Review for Freelance Writers! #2

If you have ever tried to make money online and if you are tired of being scammed or the ridiculous small payments, then keep on reading!

Triond and Factoidz are both sites that pay you for submitting articles, this is not a scam by any means, you and they earn money from the advertisers that display publicity next to you articles!.

There has been many questions regarding both of these sites, here I’ll resume a few aspects of each of these sites, hopefully these will help you make your mind!

Triond:

Triond is a site were you can publish content of any type like Poems, Histories, Cooking recipes etc, Triond will publish it.

What i like about Triond is that it has a very low  Pay out Treshhold, you only need 50$ Cents in order to cash out, also you dont have to request it, Triond automatically sends a payment to your Pay Pal account.

Every single article you submit on Triond will give you passive earning for the rest of your Life or Triond’s Life :D , this means that you’ll be gaining money even if you stop writing for Triond.

Another good thing about Triond is that they help you promote your articles and send some traffic to your articles.

Triond pays per page impression or in simple words they pay for every view your articles get, you’ll average 1 cent every 10 views you get, sometimes it pay more and sometimes it pays less, it depends on what type of article you wrote, also Triond takes 50% of your revenue (dont worry you’d actually get 2 cents every 10 views but Triond takes 50%).

Some downsides about Triond are the Following:

Some of the Triond articles have very Low quality, these are made just to get some traffic, Triond accepts any one from any were in the world, now this is not bad, but it means that kids, and Non-expert writers will be making articles which will obviously lower Triond Quality overall.

Triond has a very low Quality contact with its Community (If none), there forums are not moderated by any means, you will find spammers and people cursing at each other most of the time, it’d be a surprise to see any intelligent and well mannered discussion happening in there.

Also, on Triond there is a “Hot content” list that appears on every ones Dashboard, the Hot content list supposedly is for Hot content (If you didn’t notice :D ), by this i first understood that in order to appear in this list you’d need a Beautiful Article and that sort of things.

I am sorry but the Hot content list is just a bot that picks articles from people that receive alot of comments on their work, you’d actually think that this is fair but most of them got their comments from other Triond users its most likely spam, “You comment on mine, i comment on yours” this is pretty much what happens, also it seems to update every 2-3 days, so I’d call it the cold content list :D because I’m funny.

Factoidz:

Factoidz is another site that pays you for writing Articles, is pretty much the same as Triond, it only changes in a few aspects.

You cannot publish Poetry, song lyrics or any of those subjects on Factoidz. On Factoidz you must publish Facts about something or to explain one topic, your articles must be 400 words or more and your grammar must be perfect.

Also to join Factoidz you must apply, this means that they dont accept just any one, in order to apply you must provide information about yourself and your background as a writer, you’ll also have to provide 1 article wether if you wrote on Triond or on any other website, you can also write 1 right there.

By doing this i must say Factoidz has much bigger and better quality standards than Triond :D .

Theres actually a good community on Factoidz you ask, people answer, there is also a contest called “Buzz up”, this is a daily contest were every one can participate you post your “Buzz up” request and other members will help you promote your article, either by “Diggin it”, Re “twitting it” and a few other ways.

The winner of this contest gets it articles to be featured on every single member dashboard as the “Buzz up” winner of the day.

Factoidz also pays per page impression however there ranges are a little different, they can pay up to 1$ to 5$ for every 1,000 pages views, so that’s pretty good :D .

Now when it comes to referrals both Websites have their benefits.

On Triond if you are referred by some one they will most likely help you promote your articles, they will also give you a few views and comments, now why would they do this?  the answer is simple, whoever referred you will get 10% of the revenue you make, Dont worry this wont take any money of you, they will just earn 10% of your estimated revenue, they will not take this from your account!

On Factoidz if you are referred by someone your application will most likely be accepted instantly, you’ll also skip the first level on this site, some say that  you need to be level 2 in order to start gaining revenue (You become level 2 when you have submitted 3 articles) however i started earning from the beginning and i cant remember if i got referred by some one so i couldn’t really give you my opinion on this one hehe, you’ll be leveling when you submit more content, levels will give you benefits, when you reach level 20 your articles will be automatically published without having to be reviewed by the content team, you will also be bale to edit your articles once you have submitted 20 articles. Now whoever refereed you will make 10$ dollars if you make it to the “staff writer” level this is when you publish 20 articles.

One down side about Factoidz that i didn’t notice at the beginning, when you join Factoidz you get like 100 views the very same day with out promoting your articles. I was shocked when i saw this, however the following days my articles started to get only a few couple of views, so despite what people tell you, both Triond and Factoidz get the same number of views.

Bottom Line, these both sites are really good in my opinion, i myself use both as both have proved me that i can make some income of them, i publish short stories, my point of view and poems on Triond while i publish long and a little bit more serious articles on Factoidz. I’d recommend both sites because both are AWESOME!

On Factoidz i gained 25 cents in 2 days for only 2 articles however in Triond I’m averaging 30 cents a day because i just started, so its all up to you people!

Al tho i did say some bad things about Triond, this site works really well even with those faults, but hey if you are not so community minded you shouldn’t be bodered by these.

Also the more you publish, the more you’ll earn!!!

Hope this review actually helped you in any matter, and now! No shame on showing my referral Links! hehe:

    I think it would be wrong to say that “kids” or probably younger people the writer is referring to, produce low quality content, I’m 14 and I don’t think that makes me a bad writer.

    I would like to share this earning opportunity to every one. I know that all of us wanted to earn online and leave our local jobs. I searched it on google, if this site is legit and found that it is very reliable. This is a free site and you’ll earn fast, you will be paid in paypal. I hope you all the best! – 100% bisaya

    I recently joined factoidz. Unfortunately I like to write on low rev generating articles (as per factoidz T&C) and hardly get more than $.40 per 1000pvs.

    I have only published 2 articles there. You think there is a chance of inc earning s when I reach 3 articles (that is level up)?

    However, I think Factoidz still has more earning potential than Triond because of its Quality control SEO policies (articles with poor SEO will probably not make the cut.)

    I also firmly beleive that if u r not from US the best place to earn online is Suite101.com

  • John Paul V
    November 5th, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    Well anish, Factoidz has recenlty adopted a new way of calculating the revenew generated by your articles based on the SEO quality of these, i must say that this varies, some times my articles are ranked as “Very High” (referring to the SEO) and sometimes they are ranked as “Low” (You should see this if you click on “View my Factoidz” on your user interface.

    Anyways some articles make 6 Dollars a month for me, while some others make as you stated only a few cents, even when they have like 2k views.

    My advice for you would be to keep it up untill you reach Staff writer, you only need 20 articles for this, then you should have an idea of how good your articles can do in Factoidz.

    Also you get 60% instead of the 50% generated by your articles.

    Best of Luck

    Factiodz pay good bonuses for good articles, however I\’ve been reading rumours posts on the net from people saying that after a while they demote you down to member so you cannot earn anymore from your articles. Only time will tell for me.

  • John Paul V
    January 11th, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    Yes tigger i’ve also heard about this before, and yes only time will tell for me too, i write for both Triond and Factoidz and i must say i haven’t had a problem with Factoidz just yet, however if i do i’ll let you all know right here.

  • Factoidz Victim
    January 16th, 2011 at 8:59 am

    Factoidz is a scam. You will be paid for your first articles then paid nothing. You will not be allowed to remove your articles which continue to earn revenue for the Owner of the site.

  • Carrie H
    January 23rd, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    I made my Factoidz account in late 2008, did about 30 articles, then only write occasionally. I haven’t had any problems, although they are very strict. You have to submit factual writing, no poetry. I started again with them since they now pay you a bonus (small, like $1.00) for each article you publish. They also give you a ranking in topics you like to write about. Overall its been a good option for me.

  • Patrick Regoniel
    February 27th, 2011 at 1:41 am

    Factoidz is a great site to write factual articles. You just need to be careful with your spelling and grammar. You also need to have a basic knowledge of search engine optimization to sustain your views.

    I have been in the site for almost a year and got no problems as they promptly pay at the end of every month. At the moment, however, there seems to be some maintenance works.

    My views in the site could reach 700 a day and I think Factoidz enjoys good exposure with SEO optimized articles emphasized in the articles. On the average, I get at least 500 views a day for my 181 articles.

  • Viewpoint - Factoidz Victim
    August 3rd, 2011 at 12:49 am

    I am a Factoidz victim. There are hundreds like me. It is definetely a ponzi scheme. It is the game of a single swindler. I was lured into the trap about a year ago.
    The trap is set like this. There are a few writers of the site who are with the fraudster and they are given a share of the loot. The would tom tom their gain and new writers sign up. They would be paid higher than other sites and they would work more. When it reaches above 100 articles, the grab starts. First you may be demoted from a staff writer’s status to a writer’s. For this some fake violation may be alleged. Then you may be made just a member without any pay.
    First the income will go up. Then it will stay for a month. Then it will begin to decline. Finally it will reach a few dollars or cents, virtually your content is stolen.
    You cannot delete your content. If you delete it from each page. The thief will reload it. Even if you ask for an answer a hunded times, you will not get a reply.
    When I reached 50 articles, I got nearly $50. So I worked hard and reached 80 and I got nearly $100. I was excited and in a few days I reached 100 and next pay was around $100. I was still excited and reached 250 within a month working most of my time. Then my payment came down to $60 dollars. I asked for an explanation. I was demoted to “writer”. I again wrote; a few of my articles were deleted and I was banned alleging a fake violation. I had raised the issue at the forum. Similar many other issues were alive at the forum and the stink was spreading. So the writers’ forum was shut down without any explanation. No I am placed as a writer with a monthly payout of around $4. I have repeatedly requested to delete my account and content. But no avail. The thief has stolen my 265 articles. All unique content. The initial payment lasted only for 2 to 3 months. A ponzy scheme.
    A lot of victims have written about the story of the thief at several online forums. Now to escape it he is writing on his own site in others’ names defending the site. Also he writes at many places on the Internet in others’ names to defend the site.

    I”m a Staff Writer with Factoidz and I can say that the setup there is by far the easiest way to earn meaningful income compared to other writing sites. The fact that they pay upfront cash for every post (I earn around $2 for every article upfront, plus traffic earnings afterwards) is nice because I know I’m earning money at the beginning even if my article does not perform well.

    As for the Factoidz Victim posts – just do some research. I was there when “Sara Valor” (aka Kaylar) were at Factoidz and she was kicked off for spamming and traffic manipulation. Personally, I don’t like cheaters because they take the site’s money away from us, and I was glad when she was kicked off. She’s been posting the same story on every site that Factoidz is a scam – but all the long time writers there know that this is a made up claim.

    The best way is to reference some of the top writers on the site (you can see them on the Accolades page) and ask them what they think.

    Sorry to post again, but just run a search for the exact text posted here by “Factoidz Victim” – it is copied and pasted all over the Web, the same exact text, over and over. The author seems to be a very adept spammer. Clearly someone is out to give Factoidz a bad rap – which is unfortunate to all of the hard working writers who have given their heart and soul into making it the great site that it is:
