So we know the universal truth about making money online is you need high quality content and links to rank in the search engines. There are a million debates about how to build links, if you should even build links, or if you should just try to be social.
Anyway I’m not going to get into that because it’s a never ending fight. What I will tell you is I use web 2.0 sites to get links to my content. I write good articles on my web 2.0s, and try to provide relevant information that people will find useful, just like I do with anything I write. The sites I really LOVE to write on though are the sites that share revenue with the people who write content for them. Everyone knows about the big two, being HubPages and Squidoo. They are great sites and are easy to use for backlinks and to make money.
Anyway the real purpose of this post is to let people know about a new site that I’ve been using to build links called wizzley. This could be considered a wizzley review. It’s another revenue share site, where you get anywhere between 50-60% of the adsense and amazon impressions for the site. It’s a pretty easy to use interface as well. When I first started building on the site I was really just looking for a link (you need 5 articles for you links to become do-follow), but I was pretty surprised at how fast the articles took off and started getting some traffic. I kept throwing up articles and they kept ranking well.
The nice thing about a newer site like this is that it’s not saturated with articles. When you write on hubpages you compete not only against millions of other sites on the internet, but also with tens or hundreds of other articles on the same site. There are also just about any URL you want on the site. Using a new site like this a great benefit for sure.
Now don’t think you can go and toss a bunch of garbage up on the site and get away with it. New sites always get looked after pretty well, and so publish good content or you always risk getting banned. The only thing I’ve really seen them be tough on is adding affiliate links of your own outside of what they allow. They do provide a good service so use the adsense, and if you want an affiliate then use their amazon setup. They give a great service and you get the benefit of using a great site.
Anyway check out the Wizzley site here and get back to us with any tips or ticks you might find on the site. I’m going to keep adding to this post as I learn more and more about the service and some some tips of my own to share, so check back in regularly.

Send in a good tip to help with our review of Wizzley and I’ll post it here and give you credit and a link to your blog or Wizzley account if you like!
- When you start your page you have the option of setting your URL and title separately. In this day and age I would suggest you: a) set your title as something keyword related, but interesting for someone searching for information on the topic (think like you’re answering a question your searcher is asking) and; b) set your URL to your exact keyword.
- Use keyword cousins and longtail keywords in your module titles.
- Add an image or two, and always be sure to give them a related keyword for your image title. This is also a great place to add a link to one of your sites if you give one of your URLs credit for the image as the source URL, using your keyword as the “Name of Source”.
Wizzley can be great for making money online directly and for building links to your other sites to help you increase their rankings and earn money from them.
