Examiner.com writer pay: $736.68 for 102,816 page views in one day




I was amazed when I logged onto my Examiner account this morning.



When I saw over $736 in one of my channels "Your Usage Earnings" field -- I thought for a second I was looking at the "Current Month" totals.



But no, the period was selected as yesterday, only one day. And then I remember the Unmerited Favor of God, and the quick prayer I threw up to Him yesterday.




And with all that's going on this week, I'm learning to hopefully get rid of any self-righteous notions that I deserve any of this. Yet I know for sure tithing pays off, and God's Word is true, despite what others say.



The Christian TV Examiner channel was #1 in Top Examiners in National and #1 in Top Examiners in Arts & Entertainment yesterday.


What I love about Examiner.com being on the new Drupal platform is the way we can now upload just about any video embed code we want under that "other sources" tab and it gets put on a separate page.



Notice how I then linked to that separate page, and viewers are obviously watching the videos, because I'll be you my bounce rate is low and good -- and that helps bring in more money.



So, Examiners, as soon as you upload your videos and before you hit publish -- right click on the video you've uploaded and grab that video's URL.



Then, if you want, you can go back to the previous page with your article in it and link to that video specifically to help your viewers find the videos even more readily.



God speed on our writing!

Great job!! Good to see how far you have come in the few years I first found your blog.
I got away from blogspot and have some domains now.
I have made a few thousand with no website and feel I could do more, by creating more sites online....
Thanks for the inspiration u give here.

You're right, I just worked it out in Excel and that would be about $7.36 per every 1,000 impressions -- but it includes a number of unknown factors like bounce rate, which I believe was high because people were watching a lot of videos.

It works out to less than a penny per page view, but it's a health $.007 of a penny.
