Autobinarysignals: #1 Binary Options Software
Binary option trading varies from broker to broker but the basic concept is the same: each trade has only one of two possible outcomes. Binary option trading calls and puts turn over extremely quickly - either hourly or daily. Fortunate day traders find their investments landing consistently in the money - and reaping huge rewards as a result.
High Yields Attract Investors to Binary Option Trading
Yields on the rapid turning trades range from sixty percent to in some cases seventy five percent. It is literally impossible to compute the compounding rates of return on some of these investments because the yields are so high. Here's an example of how a trade payout might look.

Demand Media Studios Chairman/CEO quits the company he started

Demand Studios was Richard Rosenblatt's brainchild.  Not any more. He's leaving the company. He already quit as Chairman and will be leaving his CEO post by the end of this month.

The company will probably find a new CEO and keep on going, but Rosenblatt's leaving sure looks like a vote of no-confidence.

Freelance writers, as always, should stay alert and avoid relying too heavily on any one company.

Bukisa stopped paying revenue share

No Money -- photo by Alina Sofia

Another one bites the dust.  It's the same old story that we've heard from many of the other content sites -- Bukisa never recovered from Google's Panda and Penguin updates. Changes in the policies of their advertisers -- AdSense and Chitika -- also reduced the site's income.

The site is still up, and management is hoping you will choose to leave your content on the site to share your knowledge and to promote yourself as an expert. However, you are free to edit or delete your content or remove your account entirely at any time.

Anyone here write for them?  If so, were you expecting this or did it catch you by surprise?

No more posts showing my income

I felt the need for more privacy and decided to take down the posts that showed my content-site income.

I didn't delete them completely, though. They're still here in draft form in case I ever change my mind and decide to repost them.

Catching up with the content site news

Hi. I haven't written in this blog for almost a year. I got tried of tracking and publishing my content-site income. It got to be too much trouble for the small amount of money I was making.  I may start doing it again at some point, on a less detailed scale, but I have to think about that.

For now, I'd like to update what I know about what's been going on with the sites since the last time I wrote here.

Demand Studios
They raised their rates, but they are also looking for more substantial experience, credentials, and degrees in the subject-matter areas they cover.

They said they will be launching a redesigned site before the end of the year.

Media Piston
Shut down.

They raised rates for their clients, but didn't raise pay for their writers. It seems like a lot of the work has shifted to team orders. On some days, the open order pool is almost empty, although I guess that could change.

There's more competition for orders now after an influx of new writers, but it's still a good site for good writers.

Writers Domain
A lot of new writers signed on, but they are still accepting more writers periodically. Easy work.

Yahoo! Voices
This is the site that used to be Associated Content. I really haven't kept up with what's been going on there lately, but I've heard some grumbling.

Are you working for any of these sites or any other content sites?  Please share your opinions in the comments below. Pooling information helps everyone.

If you want to comment anonymously, please select Name/URL from the drop-down box and make up a name. That way, if someone wants to reply to your comment, they don't have to refer to you as "The second Anonymous," or "Anonymous at 6:31 p.m."

Rants, raves, warnings, and neutral opinions are all welcome.  Any detail you can provide about what, specifically, you like or don't like about a particular site would be fantastic.

Play nice.  Don't insult your fellow commenters who may have different opinions than yours.

Conference call with Helium CEO Mark Ranalli (Nov. 15, 2012)

(I listened to the conference call so you didn't have to)

Helium member Eszter Vajda interviewed CEO Mark Ranalli (she in her dining room, he in his office, via a Skype-like video system) with 15 people listening.

If you're familiar with Helium, there wasn't much in the call that you haven't heard before.  The main bit of news was that the new site design, long promised to be unrolled by the end of this year, will probably be delayed until next year.

Ranalli also said that they are "not promising" that writing for the portion of the site will "actually pay your mortgage."  (Someone should tell that to the cheerleaders on the forum, who still insist "the sky's the limit.") Any significant money to be made, he said, is in Content Source, the freelance assignment part of the site.

That's about it as far as news that is relevant to writers. The rest is mostly background information about the company. If you want to watch/hear the whole call for yourself, click on the viewer below:

(Editing to add 11/30/12 -- I just noticed that the broadcast is no longer available.  I don't how for how long it's been gone or why -- I don't know whether it's a temporary glitch, whether Spreecast only stores past broadcasts for a limited time, or whether Helium took the broadcast down for some reason. The conspiracy theorist in me likes the last explanation, but I really have no idea.)

(Editing to add 3/1/13 -- Just heard that the broadcast's disappearance is due to a technical glitch at Spreecast.)
