What Are Adsense Revenue Sharing Websites?

Adsense revenue sharing sites are websites that allow writers to submit articles on whatever topic they want to write about,   (such as Hubpages, Squidoo and Xomba).

The articles you have written are posted on the content sharing website  and the way a writer makes money is by sharing google adsense revenue with the website owner.  Each website has it’s own sign up policy (usually free), editorial and posting guidelines that as a writer you will have to adhere to in order to join, post articles and earn money.

They also vary in what type of revenue sharing program they have; some just provide google adsense earnings and others include additional sources of revenue such as Amazon, Chitika and Kontera earnings.  The way you (the writer) will make money depends not on how many views your article gets, but on how many people click on the contextual ads or picture or graphic ads displayed next to your article.  Obviously, the more traffic you get to your article or post,  the more potential clicks you may get and therefore, the more you will potentially earn.
