Wikinut - Another Among the Many Online Writing Sites - a Review

Rajan is a botany and chemistry major. He has worked as a poultry breeder for 23 years, breeding layer and broiler parents.

My main writing website is hubpages.com. However, among the various other online writing sites,Wikinut is where I have been writing, for just over a year. Due to lack of time I have only been able to write 25 articles so far. I am getting about 300 to 400 views at the moment for these 25 articles everyday. And this is without doing any promotion whatsoever for these articles and without any interaction with the community there, except for replying to comments, all because there is not much time.

However, during this period, I have seen this site having writers who have published hundreds of articles too and still writing there. Therefore, I am confident that this site is legitimate and pays its writers, though delays in payment are common these days with many sites.

I initially started to write on this site so that I could get backlinks to my main articles at hubpages. One can leave a link to one's hubs or articles written on other writing sites.

Dylan, unfortunately, Wikinut does not pay its writers anymore. Even otherwise, the earnings were meagre. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Rajan, I don't know if you are aware of it; Wikinut doesn't pay their writers anymore. Back November 2015, they sent an e-mail to all its writers stating that they had halted payouts. Also, they finally gave a button to delete your account (which I used to take all my stuff off that site. The site is still active, but it's not paying its writer.
