    I tried out yahoo voices, and I submitted 2 articles, which they paid me 6 bucks each for, now I want to scale up, but do you think 25 articles a day is too risky? HAs anyone had their account shutdown for submitting too many articles?

    That much a day kind of seems risky, but I've never submitted that many within a day before. I also don't think they'd be able to review so many so quickly (unless you're able to auto-post now?). You might want to spread that out a bit instead of a day, to be safe.

    If you're averaging $6/article, submitting 25 would net you 150, so you could submit a bit less -- even less than 20 -- than that and still be paid a good amount.

    Yeah I think 25 would be too much. I'm just trying to get to 1000 bucks before may 16th cause I have court an need to pay or else jail time lol lol :(


    Also do you know how yahoo makes money from the articles I submit. Seems like them paying me 6 bucks for an article is just giving out cash. How are they able to profit.

    I could give you an idea for an article if you could include my link? Only if you are from the UK though

    Hm, okay. You might be able to make that much by that time if you write out at least ten articles a day. That still seems a bit much, but it's less spammy than with 25. Since it takes a few days for Yahoo to accept the article and offer a payment, let's say you submit some now...

    Your first batch of 10 articles are approved the 17th, leaving 27 days left, so.. if I'm calculating this correctly, you could just submit about six articles a day and that'll bring you up to the amount you need for court. (Good luck with that, by the way. D: ) I'm actually going to try and do this too, since I'm in need of some money to pay off some loans.

    You must be providing quality content for them to decide to pay you $6 for it. Since they're a top company/brand, they pretty much have enough money to spare for the writers who choose to submit content for their site. That and the advertisements that are always scattered across their pages. And your articles are helping Yahoo attract visitors since they're proven to be good enough to be paid $6 for. :d

    I was about to ask how you were able to get paid so much for an article, if you don't mind my asking? You don't have to share the actual topics, just your process. The first article I submitted, I barely got $4. Though I just checked my account and an article I submitted a few days ago was offered $6 for, so that was a nice surprise! But I kind of wrote more than an article should've been.

    The articles I submitted were a very niche specific topic and they both had more then 800 words, maybe thats why they paid so much

    That's about the same amount of words I wrote for my article too. I tried to erase a bit to try and follow the guidelines as close as possible, but could only bring it down to 700. It's nice to know Yahoo isn't too strict with their word count, but then maybe the articles being on niche-specific topics could've been the reason why for that.

    Kind of sucks it takes a while to receive the earnings, though. :( (impatient) :p

    Yeah thats the biggest downfall, it takes 1-2 weeks to get approved, and then 1-3 for payment to go through -_- but im working so home so ^_^
