Why Bubblews Gets Adsense And Other Sites Don't

I have been writing posts for several years for profit. But have not come across to many sites that actually can pay much for my writing time. Many of the sites that I have written for no longer exist.

Adsense is the one main place that sites depend on for advertising money. But since they changed their way of excepting new sites many just don't make the grade for their new standards. They have gotten tired of the internet being filled with writers just writing to get paid.

One thing that I use to be a part of was the paid to click sites for profit. You won't find any of those sites being approved by Adsense. Basically any website that has a way of paying people on on a pay per view basis Adsense will not approve.

Most writing sites with the exception of Bubblews state they will pay their writers per view. Bubblews does not clearly state anywhere on their site that they pay per view. They do state you will get paid according to the revenue the site brings in. This makes it a site that is not considered a pay per view website.

They also say that they may or not pay you if they don't want to. Making this your option to work for them if you want to. There is no guarantee that you will get paid for your efforts. This also lets Adsense know that they are not just going to pay anyone all the time.

They are also a social network allowing writers to write what they want. Making it more like a Facebook style network. They allow more freedom for people to just speak what they want without to many restrictions. Something else that Adsense is looking for to place their ads.

So basically any site that pays or guarantees a payment per view will never get Adsense advertising.

Actually Bubblews does state that they pay per view in their "How It Works" section

They do say that, but it also says based on a 50/50 revenue split. If the revenue isn't there then you won't get paid. Still not making it a pay per view site. It's all in how people want to read into it. Kind of like the Declaration Of Independence. It also says on the personal redemption page before you redeem. That they pay based on revenue that is being brought into the site.
Basically they found an attorney or someone that found a way around the pay per view wording.

Yeah, they've exercised their option to not pay me a couple of times >:/

Good explanation, by the way. No idea why this article only has one like--it's helpful!

This makes so much sense, I wish I'd have written it. :) VERY HELPFUL.

To be honest I have four payouts that I haven't received. But I still write for them anyway because they still have paid me more then most sites. I have a payout right now that is overdue by 4 days already. That one is probably gone as well but you never know with them.

AliCanary wrote on July 6, 2014, 12:51 AM

Apparently the "new normal" for them is 17 days, which is how long it took me to get this last one, and several others have reported that figure, as well. I can remember back in the old days when we would all freak out if we hadn't received our payment notice within the 72 hours they'd promised. Oy!

Thanks, I don't write much anymore like I use to. These past posts here on Persona are the most I've written in a long time. But I see so many new sites making the same mistakes. So with this one I decided to speak up. I use to own several ptc sites and several other sites as well. But it seems my past experience isn't welcomed by people. That is another reason why I haven't spoken up about things before.

Thanks for the update on the "new normal," Ali. I'm on day 14 right now, and my last 2-3 each took exactly 14 days. I'm hoping to see my payment notification today, but I always figure it could be longer and don't hang my hopes on it being "on time" :)

So essentially what you're saying is that a site like Persona Paper could run on the same pay per view model as Bubblews, but if they put up a statement that payout was based on a revenue split that would make everything more right in the eyes of Google for AdSense purposes?

Bubblews pays for views, likes/dislikes and comments.

Ruby3881 I have one I requested on June 24th but I've had a few connections that have taken 21 days on their last payout so I wasn't really expecting it yet either. When I cashed out the page said 7 days but I marked it down on the calendar as July 24th (which would actually be a month) just to be on the safe side, lol.

momathome wrote on July 6, 2014, 4:26 PM

That makes sense, and would definitely explain why so many sites have lost their adsense revenue.

Ruby3881 wrote on July 8, 2014, 7:44 PM

Better to err on the side of caution, I guess! I'm on day 15 now, with no news. Hopefully in the next few hours or days I will hear :)

An interesting point of view indeed... In a sense, it's all on the play of words, how you use 'em to your advantage so to speak...

momathome wrote on July 13, 2014, 1:29 AM

Ruby3881 I did receive mine Saturday 7/12 (the email anyway) which is 19 days (just shy of my 21 day prediction). Chantiele told me her's have been running 2 1/2-3 weeks too when we were chatting the other day so I'm guessing that is a pretty safe bet to count on from now on.

Ruby3881 wrote on July 13, 2014, 4:30 AM

Mine came on day 18 - the longest it's ever been so far. I'm thinking I'll plan for 21 days in future. I wonder if there's trying to get it to where payouts are only once a month, like a lot of other writing platforms? Maybe they figure if they just sneak up on it this way and then offer the single payout date for everyone, that will seem to be a "solution" to the problem of ever lengthening lapses between redemption requests and payouts.

momathome wrote on July 13, 2014, 11:36 PM

Ruby3881 Actually, I was wondering the same thing the other day, lol. I know a lot of survey sites have switched to that to make their payout processes smoother and it actually does work very well and you often receive payment either the same day or within 24 hours of request instead of the previous 7-10 days (or more) wait there used to be on those sites.

Ruby3881 wrote on July 14, 2014, 12:44 AM

I think it might cut their bookkeeping costs as well. I guess we'll see if thisi s where Bubblews is headed too! From a certain perspective, I'd like to see a lowered threshold but a once a month pay date with (almost) instant payout. Right now I'm waiting almost a month to see payments in my bank, and that's after working a good 2-4 weeks to earn (depending on site availability, of course!)

momathome wrote on July 16, 2014, 1:32 PM

I just read that they are telling everyone it could take up to 30 days to receive payment right now. So my guess is that is definitely where they are headed.

yes it may be because of huge traffic they get.

margielynn wrote on September 16, 2014, 8:45 PM

Yes, I have made more money on Bubblews than any site I have been on. I did not get $100 in payment, but just counted it a learning curve. Just got money today!
