I started writing online in January 2010, I joined HubPages in March of that year, then in April I opened accounts with InfoBarrel and Xomba. I liked HubPages much better at first and wrote a lot of articles there, but I kept the same number of articles on Xomba and InfoBarrel in order to compare them. I also added a lot of bookmarks on Xomba, which kind of spoiled my experiment.
Anyway, InforBarrel got more views and Xomba got more money. This article was written about a year ago, since then Xomba have terminated their referral program.
Hubpages, Xomba, Infobarrel and Writing Online Articles
Since the Google changes in February 2011, I have had a lot more traffic on InfoBarrel and my earnings on Xomba have become insignificant. While I still prefer to write on HubPages, if it was a choice between Xomba and InfoBarrel, I would now choose InfoBarrel.
