I've been doing a lot of back link building lately, and I realized I've amassed quite a large collection of Google Adsense revenue sharing sites. Here are 30 sites that will share Adsense revenue with you and allow you to add back links to your other projects. There are blogging sites, article submission sites, picture and video sharing sites and more.
I like to use many of these for gaining back links to niche sites. If I'm going to be submitting articles, I figure I might as well have the chance to earn some money from them instead of (or in addition to) submitting them for free to article directories. Whatever you use them for, I hope this list helps!
FYI: My referral link is included for the sites of which I'm a member. If you do not want to use my referral link, simply perform a quick Google search of the site and you should be able to find it that way.
Blogging Sites with Google Adsense Revenue Sharing
These sites offer a free blog and some percentage of revenue sharing.
- Blogger Party - You get 50 percent of ad impressions on your blog. Write about anything you want as long as it doesn't violate Google's TOS, but spam is prohibited and blog posts may contain only one outgoing link each. Blogger Party offers very little customization for the look and feel of your blog, so you may not want to use the site for a main blog. It's great for building back links to other blogs and sites, however.Referral program available, and you'll get 25 percent of ad impressions for users you refer.
- Blogetery - Free Wordpress hosted blog with 75 percent Adsense revenue sharing. Complete customization with Wordpress themes, plugins, widgets and more. Log in to your own WP control panel and blog to your heart's content. Blog address is a blogetery subdomain (yoursite.blogetery.com).No referral program available. Great for use as a main blog if you want Wordpress with ads and don't have the money to purchase hosting.
- Soulcast - Uncensored, anonymous blogging with Adsense revenue sharing. You get 100 percent of revenue generated by your blog for the first 60 days. After this time period, you'll get 50 percent of ad impressions for the remainder of your blog's life. Limited customization with the ability to change the theme (color scheme) of your blog. Limit of 5 blog posts per day and no referral program available.
- Journal Home - Free blog with the ability to add your own Adsense ads and earn 100 percent of the revenue. Highly customizable with a large selection of themes, plugins, statistics, trackbacks, social bookmarking, rss and more. Cannot use a Gmail email address to join, but other free email services are acceptable.No referral program available. Works as an alternative to free blogger blogs, but may be a bit more difficult for new bloggers to use.
- Orble - Free blog on any subject and Adsense revenue sharing. You get 50 percent of ad impressions on your blog, and the unique thing about Orble is that they will give you a FREE domain name (yoursite.com). Post four original posts to your Orble blog and you'll be automatically considered for a free domain. Many domains are already established in the search engines, which makes it easier to earn money. Limited customization available, but they do offer a mentor program in which you can earn 10 percent of revenue from referrals. Orble is great for building backlinks and making some extra Adsense money at the same time.
- Com-x2 - Another free blog host with Google Adsense revenue sharing. The site is VERY simple and there is no customization available or referral program. However, I think it would make a good site for back links, if nothing else. I couldn't find anywhere on the site where it specifies how much the revenue is split, so I assume you get 100 percent. Not a great choice for a free main blog, but good for occasional posts to link back to other sites and articles.
- You Say Too - Free blog with Adsense revenue sharing. You get 50 percent of ad impressions on your blog posts. Referral program gains you 15 percent of referral ad impressions and 10 percent of impressions from the next tier of referrals. Limited customization, but the site gets great traffic. I have a blog on many of these free blogging platforms and I definitely get the most views on this one. Posts are quickly indexed and displayed in Google search results. Another unique feature of YouSayToo is that you can add other blogs to the site to promote them, gain back links and more exposure. You can also earn through your Amazon affiliate account and even donate your earnings to charity if you like. Highly recommended for back link building or blogging in general.
- Blogger - Almost everyone is familiar with this one, but I wanted to build a definitive list so I couldn't leave it out. Build a free blog with blogger (such as this one), place Google Adsense on the site and earn 100 percent of revenue. Great customization and many features make this a great choice for new and experienced bloggers. The site is a great alternative to paid Wordpress hosting, but is not as powerful or as customizable.
Article Submission Sites with Adsense Revenue Sharing
These sites offer a portion of Adsense revenue for submitting short articles. You'll display your own ads and you'll be paid directly through your Google Adsense account.
- HubPages - Create "hubs," or pages filled with written content, pictures, videos and ads. You'll get 60 percent of ad impressions to your hubs. You can also earn through your Amazon affiliate account, Ebay Affiliate account and Kontera ads. Affiliate referral program and traffic referral program available to increase earnings. Be sure to read my in depth review of HubPages for more information on how the site works.
- Infobarrel - This site offers 75 percent of the Google Adsense revenue your content generates. Create short articles and how-to guides. Great interface for submitting articles with a lot of room for customizing format, images, etc. Infobarrel is rather new compared to some of the other sites on this list, but it's growing fast. Referral program entitles you to 2 percent of ad impressions on your referral's content.
- Xomba - Earn 50 percent of Adsense revenue generated by your submissions to Xomba. Referral program gets you 10 percent of revenue generated by your referral's content. (They still get their 50 percent.) However, you have to email invites in order to refer other members. Submit articles, known as Xombytes, or bookmarks, known as Xomblurbs. I usually create a Xomblurb for other blog posts, articles and niche sites. This will give you a back link with very little effort. A few sentences and a link is all you need. You can also submit full-length articles on any topic. I get regular clicks from my Xomblurbs and I highly recommend the site.
- She Told Me - Publish content on She Told Me and gain valuable back links to your articles, blogs and websites while earning 100 percent of Adsense revenue generated by your content. You can also earn via Chitika ads displayed on your pages. For each link you submit to SheToldMe.com a page is created with the title of the link, the link, a description, a screenshot of the website hosting the link and a link to your main site. Referral program is also available. Highly recommended for back link building and earning extra income through residuals.
- My Triple Dub - This site claims to be a "blogging" site and prompts you to add "blog entries," but it seems more like an article submission site to me. Submit posts and earn 70 percent of the Adsense revenue your content generates. Referral program allows you to earn 10 percent of revenue from your referral's posts. The site has low PR, but it's another good place to get back links for your sites and blogs.
- Oondi - Submit articles, tutorials, reviews and stories. You'll earn 100 percent of Google Adsense revenue generated by your content. Low PR for a site that's been around since 2006, but a back link is a back link and this site is another place to cash in.
- Qondio - This site allows you to post content and gain back links to your sites. Qondio actively encourages the promotion of your websites and blogs. You can also earn 100 percent of ad revenue and you choose the ad network you want to use. Adsense, Adbrite and many more are supported. This site comes highly recommended, but there is a catch. You'll be charged a one-time fee of $5.00 to join.
- How to Do Things - Earn 50 percent of Adsense revenue from your submissions. Write how-to articles on any topic you choose, but you'll have to apply for the right to create content for the site. This isn't the greatest site for back links, but you could potentially make some extra cash writing articles. I'd recommend eHow over this site, as the pay is much better for the same type of articles.
- Article Income - Submit articles and earn 50 percent of the income they generate. The articles are published in the site's syndication network and you begin earning right away. No links are allowed in the article body, but you are allowed to place a link to your site or blog in the author resource box. You can also earn via Affiliate programs. Check it out if you're looking for a way to earn money and build back links at the same time.
- Askables - This is a relatively new site that has potential for earning residual income and building back links. Submit articles or answer questions on the topics of your choice and earn 50 to 80 percent of the revenue generated by your content, depending on your level. Expert and Top Experts can earn $5 to $15 upfront per post. (NOTE: Upfront payment is currently on hold due to an influx of plagiarism, but may be available again in the future.) Submit articles with images and links. Payment can be either through your Google Adsense account or via PayPal from the website itself.
- Get Adviced - This site is technically a blog, but its a multi-author blog that shares Adsense revenue with post authors. I'm adding it to the article submission site list since you don't really get your own blog. You just submit articles to the Get Adviced blog. Wordpress control panel makes posting easy, and you'll earn 70 percent of Adsense revenue generated by your content. No referral or affiliate links are allowed, but you can link out to other sites and articles from your posts. This isn't the most well-known residual income site, but you can get back links while possibly increasing your Adsense earnings a bit.
Article Submission Sites that Share Adsense Revenue
These sites differ from those above as they share their Adsense revenue with you, instead of allowing you to display your own ads. You'll receive a payment, usually monthly, directly from the website for your contributions.
- eHow - This is one of the highest paying revenue sharing sites in existence and I highly recommend looking into it if you haven't yet. You'll earn an undisclosed portion of the revenue your how-to articles generate. No referral program, but writing for the site is easy and you can make a large amount of income in a relatively short time. You are also allowed to include links to outside sites as long as they are relevant to the article. Monthly payment once your balance reaches $10. Highly recommended, and if you need help getting started, check out my free eHow tutorials.
- Squidoo - Create "lenses" or mini-websites filled with written content, pictures, videos and ads. Earn 50 percent of Adsense revenue generated by your lenses. You can also earn through your Amazon affiliate account or eBay affiliate account. Use the site to get back links, earn Adsense revenue and promote affiliate products. Monthly payment once your balance reaches $10. Highly recommended.
- Bukisa - Earn money based on the number of page views your content receives. The Bukisa index determines how much you'll earn and changes every month. It's usually somewhere between $3 to $4 per 1,000 page views. Referral program available and outside links are allowed. Be sure to read my review of Bukisa for more information about how the site works. Monthly payment once your balance reaches $10.
- Associated Content - Earn a small upfront payment for your contributions and residual income based on the number of page views your articles receive. You'll get anywhere from $1.50 to $1.70 per 1,000 page views. This is not the highest paying site, but I submit here for back links to other sites. You'll earn a little extra money instead of posting your content for free. No referral program at the time of this writing.
- FireHow - Another how-to article site that shares the Adsense revenue your articles generate. The site is rather young, but it seems to be growing quickly. I have a few articles there that seem to be performing okay, much better than I expected when I wrote this review of FireHow. Earn an undisclosed percentage of the revenue from each how-to article you submit. Links to outside sites are allowed, and you can use this site to get back links for other sites while earning extra money. Monthly payment once your balance reaches $10.
- Triond - Create original content on the topic of your choice and Triond publishes it on a relevant website from their network. You earn 50 percent of the revenue generated by your content. You are allowed to add an outside link, as long as it isn't a referral link. You could potentially get some nice back links by writing articles in your niche. I haven't written for this site, but it appears you'll be paid monthly for submissions made the previous month.
- Factoidz - This is a great site for building back links to your website or blog and earning extra money. The site allows you to link to your sites and articles from the content you publish. Earn from $1 to $5 per 1,000 impressions your articles receive. Detailed article analytics available. Payment is monthly via PayPal.
- Suite 101 - This is a great site for earning residual income, and is one of the highest paying on the list. You'll earn an undisclosed portion of the revenue your articles generate. You can also add a limited number of outside links if they are relevant to your content. Pages quickly gain PR and get very good traffic. You must apply and be approved to write for the site. Payment is monthly via PayPal once your balance reaches $10. Be sure to read my review of Suite 101 for more information. Highly recommended.
Miscellaneous Sites that Share Adsense Revenue
These sites also offer Adsense revenue for your submissions, but they don't fit into any of the above categories.
- Flixya - You earn 100 percent of revenue generated by the content you submit. Blog posts, pictures and videos are all accepted. I usually put up a blog post for each of my niche sites here for the back link and any extra income is just a bonus. Social networking is also prominent on the site, but I don't really bother with it. Use it for back links and the few extra clicks you may get.
- Red Gage - Import content from your other sites (sort of like social bookmarking) and earn revenue depending on the number of views your pages receive. Earn bonuses for featured content. Payment is monthly and once your balance reaches $25, you will receive a Red Gage Visa card. This site is a good way to get back links while earning a little extra.
- Weebly - Create a free website or blog with Weebly's easy site builder and display Google Adsense on your pages. Earn 50 percent of revenue generated by your site. Very easy to use. I usually create a 2 or 3 page Weebly site for each of my niche sites. You can also add RSS feeds to your site, as well as many other features.
Do you know of any sites that share Adsense revenue and allow back links? Let me know if I've missed one!
EDIT: Please take a look at Writer M's post on Adsense and Back links for another side of the story. Apparently, Google may not like back links from sites which also use your Publisher ID. I have not seen a problem with this so far, but it's always best to have as much information as possible when making a decision for your business.
