So I was looking for information online about revenue sharing sites and here is what I discovered:
It seems that most revenue sharing sites have one thing in common: they all look barely trustworthy. I mean they are not all that expensive to use, however, earning money with them is tedious and time consuming. Also, the amount that you pay upfront is too large comparing to the percentage you actually make on your money. You are better off just getting a CD or some high yield savings account. In my opinion revenue sharing sites are just not worth it. Here are some website descriptions that explore revenue sharing sites in more detail:
Now this website written by a guy named Phil who seems to be an authority on revenue sharing sites is supposed to share five trustworthy revenue sharing sites, but only shares four, I guess because there are just too many scams out there. Never the less, he does have a lot of good comments about how people have signed up for his highly recommended revenue sharing sites and how they are successful and how they are no longer looking for new revenue sharing sites because they just follow his advice. I mean I think some of these commenters are not very intelligent because he only has four good revenue sharing sites listed on his blog and there are new ones popping up every day so I think these folks should not rely on his blog as the be all end all authority. He does have the number one spot on Google for now for the keyword “revenue sharing sites”. However, being that Google changes its rules all the time I doubt that his little blog will stay up there forever. This happened to me a few times before as well. I thought I was so smart and that my blog was so great that I ended up first on Google search results, however, to my bitter disappointment, Google has downgraded my ranking within a few months not sure exactly as to why.
I like this website because it clarifies a bit more as to what revenue sharing sites are actually all about. It seems like at their core, revenue sharing sites are actually nothing too much more than traffic exchanges. If you do not purchase an ad pack, you can have a free membership and get traffic to your website by manually clicking on other people’s pages. If you do decide to go the paid route, much of this work is done automatically for you. Some of these services pay you a percentage of the website revenue for the month and others require you to click on a certain amount of websites daily to get paid. I would say that if you are trying to generate traffic cheaply and quickly for your new website, the revenue sharing sites are the way to go.
This website seems to be dedicated to revenue sharing sites and also has information about none-revenue sharing sites. There are excel spreadsheets that will help you to calculate your potential earnings with some revenue sharing sites and there are also reviews for popular revenue sharing sites.
Here you can find the owner of the blog giving predictions as to which revenue sharing sites are about to close and giving advice as to how to keep on to of the revenue sharing site where you have money invested so as not to lose your seed investment. Honestly, this whole thing is BS and I think that all of these sites are very risky and it is worse than investing in something like Penny Stocks. Don’t do it unless you are just trying to get some cheap traffic for your website or something.
This site offers a wall that monitors the status of some popular revenue sharing sites and provides some suggestions on how to stay safe with revenue sharing sites. In my opinion no matter how much research you do, you should always be willing to lose your money. Such is the nature of the game. If you are not willing to do the time, don’t do the crime.
This site talks about slightly different revenue sharing sites. Basically websites like WebAnswers and Hubpages that let the users share their content and in return receive a share of the revenue the site earns from Google Adsense. In my experience, these websites are legitimate, however, often not worth the time and effort. The owners keep changing policies as to what it takes to get an article approved and sometimes because of these changes some of your work may get deleted. Also, the revenue share is not very signifiant and the cash out amount tends to be high so you never actually get paid for your effort. It is better to own your own site in my opinion.
This page seems to be listing revenue sharing sites according to their Google page rank. The only problem is that the content is not updated and about fifty percent of these sites no longer exist.
Here you can find a pretty long list of revenue sharing sites similar to Hubpages, however, what I like about this list is that it does provide recent updates as to the status of these sites. Good job blogger!
This page talks about the steps of how to invest and recruit for revenue sharing sites that are more like traffic exchanges. Interestingly, this blogger states that you should invest the maximum you can afford into an ad pack and give it some time to see if you make money. I actually disagree with this advice because you can lose a lot of money rather quickly this way. In my opinion you should test out the revenue sharing site of your choice with a small amount first. If you see that it is legitimate, then you can invest a larger amount if you feel like you can trust the website.
This is a fairly simple blog listing a few revenue sharing sites for writers. Just a simple review and nothing special as far as the information is concerned.
This page is all the way back from 2015 and it lists the revenue sharing sites that offer ad packs. I like that the author posts income proofs for each site reviewed.
This page describes some revenue sharing sites similar to Hubpages and gives some tips on how to use them and the benefits/challenges that come along with them. This is a pretty basic blog and most of the information is common sense.
On this page I learned about revenue sharing photography websites. Cool idea as well!
While this blog does give a list of popular revenue sharing sites, it is focused on selling a course on “How to make your first 1K” writing online. I doubt the course will teach anyone anything that they don’t already know.
This website has a chart on top of the page showing the earnings from a number of revenue sharing sites where you have to buy the ad packs. Below, there is a long list of reviews for various revenue sharing sites, which are basically traffic exchange sites in disguise. I also like that this blog has recent information.
This blog is an inspirational information piece about revenue sharing sites. The owner seems to be from India and is claiming that he makes about 4 times the salary of an engineer in India with revenue sharing sites. I am not sure that I believe this claim 100%, however, I do find it inspirational. However, the advice that he is giving about revenue sharing sounds like the same advice you often get from stock investment experts. It is all good until you start losing money. However, gambling with money is not a game so I do not think one should rely on this revenue sharing as the primary source of income, although the author claims to make a living of it.
This author talks about why she stopped writing for revenue sharing sites. She claims that initially, before Google went crazy, she was making about $10,000 monthly with revenue sharing sites. However, once Google turned into a wild zoo, she was down to only making $500 per month. I am not sure that I entirely believe this crazy earnings difference, however, I completely agree with the author that if you want to have control over your income, you are better off quitting the third party websites and starting your own. Amen girl!
This blog talks about the various different types of revenue sharing models. It discusses a variety of revenue sharing sites and what it would take to make real money through them or should I say make a living writing for them.
This blog states that all revenue sharing sites are nothing more than ponzi schemes in disguise. By revenue sharing sites they mean sites that require you to purchase the ad packs to make money. The blog does bring up a good point about the fact that most of these revenue sharing sites have no other place to generate profit from other than selling the ad packs. Few of them have other sources of income like selling advertising on their website. However, none of them provide any sort of financial statements to put the investor at ease, so in reality revenue sharing sites are not real investment opportunities, but just very risky gambling game and your initial investment can be lost at any time. So make sure that you do not get greedy and do not invest too much money into these sites because no one guarantees that you will get it back.

This page provides a daily update on the stats of new revenue sharing sites.
This is a very poorly designed page with very little information about just two revenue sharing sites. It seems like the whole purpose here is providing payment proofs for these sites.
This pages provides a pretty long list of revenue sharing sites for writers. Unfortunately, the list is not updated.
Here you can actually find descriptions of various Google Adsense alternatives. Basically, you get information for ad networks like Chitika, Clicksor, Infolinks, etc…
This site provides information about the top five best revenue sharing sites of 2017. Basically this is all about purchasing ad packs and the blog owner claims that he is making money with these websites. I like the the blog is up to date, however, I think that the owner needs to focus more on the actual risk involved in putting money into these sites as they are not real investments, but more like a form of gambling. The author states that you can earn $200 per month with each one of the sites on his list, however, you do have to invest a good deal of money initially to get there and being that I do not really trust these websites, not sure that this is the smartest move.
This page gives a short, but up to date list of adpack revenue sharing sites.
This page also gives a short, but up to date list of adpack revenue sharing sites.
This page gives a list of adpack revenue sharing sites and shows whether or not they are legitimate along with payment method, etc..
This seems to be some sort of e-book about how to build long term wealth with revenue sharing sites. My only issue is that the e-book is suggesting that you get rich on someone else’s dollar by building a referral network and having the referrals do all the work for you. The issue occurs when your referrals no longer want to do the work. At that point you are stuck having to again look for more referrals and also there is a chance that the website where you have worked so hard to build referrals has closed. This is the real killer. You are better off just building your own business.
