Yahoo Voices Bites the Dust
Earlier this evening I read a post by AdrienneJenkins mentioning that Yahoo Voice (ex Yahoo Contributor and ex Associated Content) was shutting down. I have still been getting a dribble of money from there. I am not surprised that the website is shutting down. I cannot even remember the last time there was any communication from the website, or changes to the format. Basicallyit has been dormant since it became Yahoo Contributor. I did write, at their request, some articles for their other content sitesbut I guess those are closing down too.
Tonight I copied all my content, using Evernote. It was very easy and fairly fast too. Then I went and deleted all the content that was deletable. I will wait about six weeks, check to see if the posts are still indexed, and when they are no longer showing as on Yahoo, I will use them on other websites.
I have a friend who works at Yahoo. He told me, about three months ago, that a two year old website, that paid much more than Yahoo, was killing the Yahoo sites because a good percentage of the content writers had quit writing on the Yahoo site. Most of you know what website I am talking about. It's the one that is forever blowing Bubbles. Are you affected in anyway by the shutdown of the Yahoo Voices writers website?
I hope you all have a great holiday fourth of July.
