You might have known that Yahoo has a massive collection of blogs and websites full of content…
But did you ever stop to consider where that content all comes from?
Besides the content they produce “in house”, a large portion of it comes from content creators like us!
Welcome To The Yahoo Content Network!
Yahoo’s publisher network ties into your PayPal account and pays you when you complete jobs from the offers board that provide content for their network of sites. They also work directly with Associated Press and you could wind up syndicated there as well!
Offers are from a diverse array of topics and span their OMG! network, Shine (women’s issues) network, as well as Yahoo! News, Yahoo Sports, and more.
According to this document that you should read, “offers typically range from $2 to $15.”
You can also submit your own original idea pieces and see if they will be picked up by the network. This is helpful because I did not see many offers on the job board.
However, that’s not all, because there are performance bonuses if your post does well on any site that it is reprinted too within the network.
To sign up, the requirements are:
1) You must be 18 years old and a citizen or legal resident of the United States to earn money on the Yahoo! Contributor Network. [Alternately, check out the similar program for the UK]
2) A Yahoo! account
3) You may be required to submit your taxpayer identification number to us for verification purposes.
4) All contributor payments are processed via PayPal.
5) You must sign in at least once every 90 days to continue receiving Performance Payments.
It is VERY important that you read, understand and carefully follow the submission guidelines. These are more structured than many guest blogging criteria so pay careful attention to them.
When filling out your profile it is VERY important that you do all of the extra questions to the degree that you will share such information. Those questions are used to qualify you for writing offers. The more you can tell them about yourself, the better chances you have of getting cool offers.
One thing you may want to do, in the profile set up area, is to customize your profile URL. By default it will have your name in it but you can change that while setting up the ID. Be sure to keep it branded to you and not to your blog, since this profile is the equivalent of your G+ profile. You can see my YCN profile here. You can even earn some fun badges.
I’m just getting started with them, so I don’t have too much to show yet, but I’m looking forward to this!
