Yahoo Contribuor Network continues to Rip Off Writers ~ Another Review

Opinion Piece.

Well, folks. Looks like I'm not the only writer that's been victimized by YCN aka The Yahoo Contributor Network. UPDATE: Now known as Yahoo Voices.

Article Excerpt: "Yahoo! Contributor Network is not a good website to write for in my opinion. The editors are dishonest and the performance point payments are laughable."

The entire article is at www.reviewstream.com/reviews/?p=133516.

And then there is my experience with them.

As a side note: if you are looking for reputable publishing websites that give you decent compensation, here are just a few:

hubpages (Best all around that I have discovered so far)

squidoo (Best for Amazon specialists that I have discovered so far)

infobarrel (Seems fine. Nothing negative to report)

triond (Seems fine. Nothing negative to report)

And from what I've see, all of them pay over double-to-triple what YCN does.

Good luck in your writing endeavours. It's a tough business, but it can be done. :-)
