BubbleWS another Squidoo like site which pay authors write articles for them. It’s still in primitive stage they need lots of improvements to be done. Their system is not exactly like W Squidoo. It’s a different system. They pay for activities happen on your articles which are call as Bubbles. This is how you get paid,
- 1 cent for every view your Bubbles get
- 1 cent for every Like or Dislike.
- 1-3 cents for Facebook share.
- 1 cent for comment in Bubble.
- 1-3 cents for Tweets.
- 1-3 cents for Google+.
Unfortunately their point system is like asking to be cheated. I saw one guy complain about not getting paid after doing massive retweetings. As to his stats BubbleWS owns him 1k usd per week or something like this. Probably BubbleWS didn’t even earned that much from those Bubbles guy had made.
BubbleWS does have some some rules about making these Bubble articles. Each post need to have at least 400 characters (not so good. This should be like at least 200 words), No Adult materiel, no duplicate content, has to be written in English, no Referral or Affiliate links etc
Their payments methods are Paypal, Checks and gift cards. You can redeem your earnings when it reach 24 USD. Earnings suppose to take 4-5 days a clear. But this is where they have problems. They do not have a proper communication system for this. They need to build a proper system so can respond and talk with members about their redeems. There are people who has received 2nd and 3rd payments not haven’t heard anything about the first payment. If you are not getting paid for some reason they should send you a mail telling so with reason why. This is one to biggest problems they have. There must be at least 5000 members who actively writing articles and then at least 100 – 200 must be hitting the redeem button everyday. Verifying all their posts is not something is when there are only several people to do that. Understandable. But members should able to see the status of the payment.
Another few things they can improve is their editor is terribly simple and posts look way too dull unlike at Squidoo. Also site and functions looks like the whole thing was programmed by cheap programmer. This might be the reason why it’s always slow. Now BubbleWS is well known and becoming established site they should do a complete overhaul of their web site.
BubbleWS is an very promising alternative to Squidoo. I wish I could put equal to Squidoo but I can’t. Not yet. They need to do something about it so their site can stand long. There are lots of people who has gotten paid by BubbleWS so they are not a scam.
