UPDATE (Feb. 2011): Bukisa no longer pays just for bringing traffic to their site. Now, at Bukisa you will have to place your Adsense/Chitika adverts and when visitors click those ads, that revenue is shared with you. Now BloggerStop NO LONGER suggests Bukisa as an easy money-making Blogging service.
Blogging is almost always associated with earning money online. But it is not necessay to write paid posts or sponsored posts to start earning. You don’t even have to sign up with any advertising agencies like Adsense, Komli, or Bidvertiser etc. to earn money while blogging. There are websites, ready to add funds to your bank account simply for writing posts, and bringing visitors to them. Here’s a comparison between the leaders of “make money while blogging” service providers.
Bukisa vs Today
First things first…
So how much do they pay and when do they payout?
, according to their previous month’s total earnings, Bukisa team fixes a “Bukisa Index” every month. Presently at the time of writing this post, the index is at $3.45. That means you will earn $3.45 for every 1000 visitors your articles receive. Whereas Today.com
says it will pay $2 per 1000 pageviews your articles receive (and this figure is subject to change every month). Presently I receive just around $1 per 1000 views. Even in the payout values, Bukisa beats Today.com. Payout is the minimum amount of money you need to earn to request a cashout to your paypal account
. At Bukisa you can get your money transferred to your Paypal account as soon as you make $10, whereas at Today
you need to earn atleast $50 before asking for a cashout.
Then why don’t everyone simply select Bukisa over Today?
Blogging is not just about making money online. Being a blogger, you own a unique url on the World Wide Web. Working on your blog is just like decorating your work desk. At Bukisa, you are not assigned with any unique url (no domain/sub-domain is registered for you). You can neither change the template nor you can add any widgets to your blog.
But at Today
, although the flexibility to edit your template and adding widgets is much less as compared to blogs hosted on Blogger
or on WordPress
, but are much more as compared to Bukisa. So at Today.com you not only get paid to receive visitors to your blog, but you have all the permissions, edit the template colors and add some simple widgets to the blog.
So what do I suggest…
It’s simple, register at both the websites and write unique content for both of them. As you are given a unique url (sub-domain) at Today.com, so it is better to keep your blog focussed on a single topic. But in Bukisa you are free to write whatever you feel to write. So for all your random ramblings switch to Bukisa.
