Getting Paid For Reviews That Have The No Follow Attribute

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.

  1. Have you looked at ReviewMe? That one is a bit more up-market.

    I think the reason that the prices have bombed is because it’s mainly used by people who want lots of links and they want to pay for as little as possible for as much as possible.

    ReviewMe is more for links and the content of the post.
    .-= David Hopkins´s last blog ..mod_rewrite Quick Reference and Cheat Sheet =-.

    1. I’ve actually done a few paid reviews for ReviewMe David, and while I agree it is more up-market, that could be because it’s been around a lot longer. Anyway, the post is more about the new PayPerPost v4.0, rather than the old one.
      .-= Sire´s last blog ..Flowers Make For Great Photos =-.

  2. I have to be honest as I have never thought of doing it. Ok, it has crossed my mind, but I have totally stayed away from those kinds of programs. Maybe I should have a look, there could be something in for me.

    I would not bother for $15 a post as I would have to do 7 to get over a $100. Maybe if they were paying $25 to $35 per post, then it might be ok.

    Thanks for sharing this.
    .-= George Serradinho´s last blog ..Newest WordPress Plugins 09/07 =-.

    1. Actually George I take ops that pay as low as $5 per post, but then they only want a minimum of 60 words. I can knock some of them off in 5 minutes so that is equal to 60 bucks an hour. Even if it took 15 mins that’s still equivalent to $20 an hour.

  3. Jezz! I never knew at one point you would get paid so well for writing articles. I can barely keep up with my own blog let alone write for someone else! Sad to see the ppp industry die off so fast I can’t believe the difference you mention in your post here between what you use to get pad to what you get pad or offered now.

    If I read correctly they would pay you more the higher your page rank was?
    .-= bbrian017´s last blog ..How To Write A Landing Page That Converts–Part 2 =-.

    1. It’s still alive and strong Brian, PPP was just one that seemed to go astray for a little while, and I believe they’ve started up the new site rather than play around with the original.

      As to the PR, yes there are advertisers that will pay you more depending on your PR. I’ve seen some ops that paid up to $1000 for a two hundred word post if you had a PR7 blog.

  4. I have never really looked into PayPerPosts before, mainly because I haven’t had the time… but it definitely sounds interesting. Hard to make any real money unless they increase the amount they are paying. Thanks for the tip.
    .-= Doug Dillard´s last blog ..Selling Information Products – Why People Buy Them =-.

    1. You know what though Doug I think what Sire is saying is we missed the boat on this one and it’s not as profitable as it once was. I might be wrong but from what I read they aren’t paying anything close to what he was getting when he first started!

      1. He definitely said that… but he is hoping the new version will improve over time (I believe), as he did recommend us to give it a try. That is what I got out of it.
        .-= Doug Dillard´s last blog ..Selling Information Products – Why People Buy Them =-.

        1. We’ll have to wait and see if anyone gives it a try to see how it works out! I’m way to busy to blog for money!
          .-= bbrian017´s last blog ..ReviewSNAP to Add Weighted Competencies Option =-.

          1. I agree!
            .-= Doug Dillard´s last blog ..Selling Information Products – Why People Buy Them =-.

          2. Don’t worry guys, I always manage to find time to Blog For Money, so I will give it a test run, and once I’ve seen how it all works out I will do another post to report on it.

  5. Many of the advertisers are paying based on the Google PageRank of your blog and sometimes traffic levels. So depending on what your blog’s PR & traffic is you should still manage to get at least $10 – $20 for a paid post. For fairly new blogs it probably wouldn’t be very profitable.

    1. Which site are you referring to Jeremy?

      1. Not talking about any site in particular. Just speaking generally. This is what I have noticed mostly from the other side as an advertiser. There are several different networks that connect blog writers & post advertisers. Plus you can also find work through any of the bigger seo forums.

        When you do paid posts you do have to be careful which sites you accept and possibly how frequently you do paid posts. Reviewing the wrong site could have negative implications on your reputation and search engine rankings.

        1. True, but it all depends on how you do the review. Some posts don’t even require you to review the site at all as all they require is a link and keyword. Those are the easiest paid posts to take.

  6. I had totally forgotten about these services. What would be a realistic amount of reviews to do per month?

    /Mikael
    .-= Mikael @ Retire Rich´s last blog ..When Are People Most Likely To Retire? =-.

    1. That depends on the individual blogger and how many Paid to Post companies he is subscribed to. I do 10 to 15 per month, but I could do more if I had the time. It’s actually a pretty good source of income for those stay at home mums or anyone who is currently unemployed.

  7. Sounds promising. I am up for a test run as well. Thanks for sharing this as I have been looking for other sites that pay you to blog. I am a meber of 2 but there are not enough quality opps. Hopefully, this one will have lots of good opportunities to choose from.
    .-= Tycoon Blogger @Make Money Blogging´s last blog ..More Exposure for your Tweets =-.

    1. Let me know how you go mate. They still haven’t been able to resolve my issue and I can’t take any ops until it is resolved.

  8. I never realised you got paid that much for a post to be honest, I always assumed it to be a case of a few dollars. I guess with the growth of the Asian market (especially India as far as I can gather) it’s all got a bit more competitive, in my opinion unreasonably so. The quality of your post should matter, not jsut the PR of your site. But I guess money talks at the end of the day and if a site can get a link for cents rather than dollars, from the same PR, it doesn’t matter at all to them…
    .-= gurgle´s last blog ..Helping your toddler adjust to a new sibling =-.

    1. Honestly gurgle I don’t know why people pay for a paid post in the first place, especially as it disappears into the archives, and if a blogger doesn’t know what he’s doing it is lost forever. Personally I would much prefer to pay for a 125*125 ad or a link that stays on the home page as that would get so much more exposure.

  9. I feel like I’d sound very dumb to ask this, but I’m going to ask anyways — how exactly does PayPerPost work?
    .-= The Gooroo @ Finance Advisory Stop´s last blog ..What Keeps You Blogging? =-.

    1. You won’t learn unless you ask. With PayPerPost it’s fairly simple. Once you log on you check the opportunities section to see which ones you qualify for and simply click on the one you want to take. You then simply follow the instructions set by the advertiser, submit and you’re done.

      1. Thanks for clarifying that. I’m guessing the opportunities you qualify for are based on your blog? Or am I wrong?
        .-= The Gooroo @ Finance Advisory Stop´s last blog ..What Keeps You Blogging? =-.

        1. It can be many things. You may not qualify because your PR is too low, your niche is all wrong, or simply because you don’t host your own blog. Sometimes advertisers even look for bloggers from a particular country.

          1. I see. What are the chances of getting your blog banned by Google by using PayPerPost? Doesn’t Google hate paid posts?
            .-= The Gooroo @ Finance Advisory Stop´s last blog ..What Keeps You Blogging? =-.

          2. Well, if you were looking for a way to lose your PR, doing paid reviews for PayPerPost would be the way to do it, but it’s like I’ve always said, PR isn’t everything.

  10. Recently i read the news that Google started imposing ban on PPP user blogs. It’s true infact..

    And even PPP offers very low payment tasks..It’s very rare to see a $50 task there..I never accepted any task from them..Sponsoredreviews is the best one as per my knowledge…
    .-= TechZoomIn´s last blog ..Yahoo GeoCities is closing..! Act Now..! =-.

  11. I’m not sure about banning them, but I do know that the PR of PPP bloggers has been reduced. As for the low payment tasks, I do believe I covered that in the post. ;)

  12. I always thought it was amusing that PPP’s business plan is based on “outsmarting” Google, yet they run Google Analytics on their site. For me, this kind of tells me where they are at…
    .-= Robert@Wheelchair Guide´s last blog ..Evaluating a Manual Wheelchair for Safety and Comfort =-.

    1. I’m not sure that was their plan so much as they were providing the service so that others had the opportunity to do so, and probably doing quite well for it as well.

  13. Excellent article Sire I am always looking for new areas to grab and give some traffic out, not to mention I pass this stuff on to my RSSBuilders.com company.
    .-= Extreme John@Extreme John Blogs and Business´s last blog ..Homecoming Limo Special =-.

    .-= Extreme John@Extreme John Blogs and Business´s last blog ..Chuck Liddell joins the family =-.

  15. No worries John, you know me mate, I aim to please.

  16. I agree that real work should be rewarded with real money. Bloggers are not people who just want to spend some free time hanging with their “virtual friends”. PayPerPost v4.0 is just another example of a tool that would make blogger life easier in my opinion.
    .-= pozycjonowanie poznań´s last blog ..Odsiwiacz =-.

    1. You are so right Pozy, there is no reason at all why a blogger should not be paid for making use of their talents. As it turns out, PayPerPostv4.0 sent me my first client just the other day, and he graciously paid me $10 for a simple link. No review needed.

  17. I have not yet tried this one but I probably will soon. I experimented with SocialSpark and I am not at all happy with them. I also have tried ReviewMe and I just completed my first post for $25 (not too shabby)
    .-= Tycoon Blogger@Make Money Blogging´s last blog ..Is Social Spark ripping off bloggers? =-.

  18. Thanks for info. Seems like you can make some money blogging for others directly. I’ve actually got a job that involves some sorts of blogging already, but this could be a very nice side job opportunity.

    1. That’s great Andrew and like I’ve always said, when it comes to money, every cent counts.

  19. It was definitely one of those good reviews that would help a lot of people to take the most beneficial decisions for them. However, I would love to know what you are currently making form it? Is it a profitable deal for you with new version?
    .-= Chris Peterson´s last blog ..Tips for Building High Value Links for Your Site =-.

  20. Honestly I haven’t put all that much effort into it. I think I’ve done three reviews and earned around $50-$60 for them.
