Bubblews is a new social bookmarking site that allows you to submit links and news items in 15 different categories. I joined Bubblews in late October 2012 and have earned $100 in four months, a fortune with a backlinking website. For the sake of comparison, I joined Red Gage in March 2012 and have earned $13. If it weren’t for the fact that I somehow won two $25 gift card drawings, I wouldn’t even have a payout there yet.
Submitting Posts on Bubblews
To submit a new post on Bubblews, hit the Submit button on the left-hand side of the home page. When the next screen appears, start by listing a title for your article or news item. Next, you should choose a category and then choose one or more pictures if you want to include them. In the content box, you should type one or two paragraphs about your article and then conclude with a link to it. I have also seen people type their entire submission in this box. The posting minimum is 400 characters, which is only about one long paragraph.
50 Percent Revenue Share
Bubblews offers a 50/50 revenue split as well as money for every like, dislike, comment or social media share. This amount of money you earn is based on the number of unique visitors you have. For example, if 100 people view your post one time each, that counts as 100 unique views. However, if one person views your post 100 times, it is still only counted as one unique view. Bubblews is still a patent pending community, which means that it is new enough for you to do very well. It is important to understand the websites rules as failure to follow them means you won’t get paid.
Setting up Your Profile and Connecting with Other Users
Signing up for a Bubblews account is free and takes approximately 60 seconds. You can input as much or as little information as you would like. On my profile, I listed the link to my Yahoo and Hub Pages profiles in an effort to get more traffic. I also included my picture and a brief biography.
Like Red Gage, you have the opportunity to connect with other users on the Bubblews site. Once you are connected to someone, you receive notification every time he or she submits a new post. Your notification bar also informs you when someone liked, disliked, shared or commented on one of your posts. I try to make a few new connections every day and this has helped me to earn more money.
Cash Out Options
Once you reach $25, you have the option of requesting payment by PayPal, check, Visa gift card or listing an item for sale online that is equal to the amount in your Bubblews bank account. I have cashed out three times and have always received my payment by the next day. Sometimes it is by echeck, which means waiting three days for the funds to clear.
