No. You can post your own content and we highly recommend that you do so to showcase your style and work and to help you show up higher in Google search results.

CAN POSTS CONTAIN MUSIC AND VIDEOS?
Yes.

HOW IS THE WRITER PAID?
YAYWORLD verifies the business's credit card and stores it as a payment method. When the business publishes a post their card is debited and funds transferred to the writer's account.

HOW DOES YAYWORLD MAKE MONEY?
YAYWORLD adds a 5% service charge to the sponsor's fee and deducts 5% from the writer's fee - so 10% per post to cover the bank's credit card transaction fees.

WHAT IF A SPONSOR DOESN'T LIKE THE CONTENT?
The business can review and request edits any time before the post is published, because only the business can publish the post. Not the writer.

WHERE IS THE POST PUBLISHED??
The business can choose from one of 480 YAYWORLD websites, each containing relevant content about a specific city, state or country.

WHY IS THE POST PUBLISHED TO A YAYWORLD WEBSITE?
Google displays websites it considers an authority on a topic/destination top of search results because it considers 'authority' sites provide quality information relating to the user’s search query. Inbound links from YAYWORLD are an indication that content on the business's website is useful for its users. As a result, Google will likely rank the business website higher in search results.

ARE YAYWORLD WEBSITES SEO FRIENDLY?
All our websites use Schema micro data - a shared vocabulary created by Google, Microsoft and Yahoo so search engines can understand the structure of the page.
