I used to be an avid PayPerPost fan for quite awhile but unfortunately all good things must come to an end. The reason for my loss of enthusiasm for PPP is due to all the changes that has happened of late, the worst being the amount being offered for taking on a task offered by their many advertisers. In the ‘good old days’ the minimum you could earn was $5 for a post ranging from 50-200 words. If your blogging had a half decent PR you could earn hundreds of dollars for a post. On my PR3 blog I used to get paid up to $50 for a post. Now you’re lucky to get a couple of bucks and the offer can be as low as 50 cents for a hundred word post.
Perhaps the reason for the people at PPP starting up a new version, PayPerPost v4.0, is due to a lot of members feeling the same as I do, they want to be paid a fair amount for their work. Being a brand new site I suppose it’s bound to have some bugs in it, but once the bugs are ironed out it could well be a lot better than the original one.
There are some major differences, probably the most important one to most bloggers is that the general rule is that all links are required to be no-follow. There may be some advertisers that want do-follow links, but then it is up to the individual bloggers as to whether or not they take the opportunity.
Another major difference is that bloggers can set the prices. Prices are set when submitting a blog so you can choose how much per link and per word you wish to get paid for each post. As an example, if you were to set parameters of 5c per word and $5 per link, a 200 word post would earn you $15.
Apparently blogs from the original PPP account were to be easily transferred to the new version, but as I’ve discovered, this is one of the bugs I mentioned earlier. Honestly this is really a pain in the ass because it won’t allow me to enter them manually as it says they already exists. Perhaps I should have just opened a new account?
So, if you are one of those bloggers who wouldn’t mind getting paid for doing a review you may want to give PayPerPost v4.0 a try.
