    Is this an email from Nigeria? All I have to do is send over my bank account number, right?

    No it is likely legit because every paper gets picked up by google. But you would have to get a shit ton of clicks to make any decent amount of money, so this is certainly a big waste of time.

    I hope the articles are edited better than that intro, that's for sure.

    Can I just get a quarter for every one of these "big buck" job listings?

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for your replies so far, I appreciate them!

    First of all we are not some scammers from Nigeria (I know there are enough of them out there).

    Secondly, there are only about 25000 official Google News Source websites out there right now and we are one of them. Since we are a Google News approved website we get lot of traffic.

    AdSense revenue sharing method is a reliable way of cooperation.

    If you need more details or have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me here on the forum or through the site.

    Many thanks,

    As one of the many talented writers here who have wasted their time with the Examiners and Demand Studios of the world, can you offer a bit more information? For instance, how does your site and the Google AdSense structure differ from Examiner's PPC structure and the like?

    Thanks so much for the insight...

    I feel like I have seen so many of these revenue sharing, content mills on here that I would need an excel spreadsheet to track all of them. If the pay is minimal, which is has to be, even if at only the beginning, then why would professionals want to write for you? They have to compete with 25,000 other sites and other content mills.

    Look, I'm sure you mean well, but take it somewhere else. Like Craigslist. On second thought don't. Even the crap I find on Craigslist pays better. Honest to god.

    Any legit site is going to pay by the article, not on some bogus pay per click bullshit.

    Even if it is only $30-50 per article, that is guaranteed money for a writer's work, not an if.

    And keep harping on this AdSense stuff, but there is a good chunk of people that don't even see them with sites/apps like Firefox's Adblocker.

    And this thread title should be changed since there is no big bucks associated with this. Or we can just wait a month or two when this site inevitably folds.

    SportsJournalists.com regulars know to tread very, very lightly with these. If at all. You get the hint.
