Triond low earnings, not worth the time and effort

This is my personal opinion of Triond. Written in a fully-fledged review.

Review

In my opinion and personal experience, I have found that using Triond is not worth it any more. Triond used to be a great site where you would submit your content either writing, pictures, audio and videos and you would earn for every visit to your content. At first the earnings were great there, but after a while Triond started paying a lot less and everyone noticed where they'd get around $2 per 1000 views there now only getting around $0.60 per 1000 views. This was quite worrying, and almost instantly people started crying scam in it's forum and members also saying goodbye because they were leaving.

I too left Triond a few days a go after finding Ciao. Which pays much better from just one review.

The forum on Triond I am extremely disappointed about, it could have potentially been a vocal point for the members of Triond and it's community, but instead Triond left the forum un-moderated, literally no moderators at all. And there were no rules either. And your probably thinking the same as me "Disaster?" if so, your utterly right! Disaster broke out after spammers attack the forum on a daily basis and Triond says they can't stop that.

Another issue with Triond is the support. Well, I don't know how they call it support as you don't seem to get any thing from it. You ask a question or report a problem and they either marked it as answered or Fixed when no one has even replied to it, and the employees say's it has been answered, obviously leaving members very angry.

The actual Triond website is pretty fast, though the dashboard does load slightly slower same with the forum. But the sites Triond put your content on are very slow and are completely full of ads.

The navigation and design of the site are pretty nice, it is easy to navigate after they added drop-down menus which uncluttered the website. The design is a simple green, black and white so it goes easy on the eyes.

And with it having so many members the content is great, well most of it that is generated by the good users.

The search could be improved slightly by not including words like "it" and "is" just like Google Search works.

Advantages/Disadvantages

The advantages of Triond are the following:
Forum, Search, Very active, New content minutely, Kind members, Easy to navigate, Good design

The disadvantages of Triond are the following:
No support, No moderators in forum, Low earnings

Would I recommend Triond?

No, I would not recommend Triond due to the low earnings and no support. Furthermore, the non-moderated forum adds to the downside.

Authspot is the only place I like in Triond. I agree with what you have said.

I have not had time to write much either here or there. I did have a huge earnings drop on Triond though when Google changed its search engines.

Yeah, I did notice though that it has increased slightly again, but a really tiny amount.

So far, it does not appear to me that Wikinut is any better. I still find the old Associated Content (now, the Yahoo Contributor Network-YCN) to be the most consistent payer.

Wikinut is much better than Triond.

As far as I know, many authors have quit Triond due to very slow earnings. Thanks for sharing this useful and very interesting article.

Good share. I had a look at triond once and passed because it reminded me so much of factoidz which was one big scam! Thanks for the warning!
