Everyone dreams of making money, and potentially a living, from the comfort of their own home. There are many online gimmicks and get rick quick schemes one can come across by simply searching google or yahoo for methods of making money online. The method described below is not a get rich quick scheme or even a get rich over time concoction, but rather a simply method for making consistent and growing income each month through residual earnings from writing articles online. Below is a nine month experiment of writing eHow articles and tracking earnings based on the articles published.
I started writing ehow articles in January, and tracked all earnings as well as the number of articles published per month, and total articles published over time. The below table and chart show the earnings over time and earnings per article calculation on a monthly basis.
Notice that most of the articles were written in January, however over time the dollar amount earned per article increased as articles became more visible by search engines. Also note that in the July time period, six articles were removed. This is because eHow strives to keep their content to a high standard, and removes articles that are either poorly written, have low amount of visitors, or violate any of the eHow guidelines.
As you can see, writing articles on eHow can make you money over time, and the longer articles are out on the web, the greater the return you can expect.
