HOW DO CONTENT CREATORS MAKE MONEY ON YAYWORLD?
You can either join an Affiliate Program and earn a commission every time someone buys a product as a result of reading your content. Or write Sponsored Content which is when a business pays a flat fee for you to write content.
HOW ARE AFFILIATE MARKETERS PAID?
Affiliate networks provide tracking, payments and support, and usually payout commissions once a month. Commissions vary from network to network, from product to product, and on the price of the product.

The sponsor must provide a credit card which YAYWORLD uses to verify their identity. When the sponsor clicks the PUBLISH button, payment is deducted from their credit card and transferred immediately to the writer's account.
DO I HAVE TO JOIN AN AFFILIATE PROGRAM OR BE SPONSORED?
No. YAYWORLD is free, which means you can guest blog on any YAYWORLD website for as long as you want. In fact, we recommend doing this to build a portfolio to showcase your writing style if you decide to build your own client base.
WHERE IS THE POST PUBLISHED?
You can publish on any one of 441 local YAYWORLD websites.
WHY IS THE POST PUBLISHED TO A YAYWORLD WEBSITE?
Google displays websites it considers an authority on a geographic location top of search results because it considers 'authority' sites provide quality information relating to the user’s search query.
WHY ARE BACKLINKS IMPORTANT?
Backlinks (i.e., inbound links) from a YAYWORLD website to a sponsor's website is an indication to Google that content on that company website is useful for its users. As a result, Google will rank that company 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.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO SPONSOR A POST?
Writers set their own fees, depending on their expertise and location. In the USA writers charge on average $100-$300 for 500+ words with images, and $300-$600 if the content creator provides a video.
WHAT IF A SPONSOR DOESN'T LIKE THE CONTENT?
Sponsors can review and request edits any time before the post is published. Note that only the sponsor can publish the post. Not the writer.
CAN POSTS CONTAIN MUSIC AND VIDEOS?
Absolutely! Just load a video file instead of a feature image. And don't forget the custom buttons you can add to your content to redirect your reader to a product or music download.
