A post is a news summary of between 50-100 words. Posted on the same topic are joined together to create a newsline. For example, a newsline about John Lennon would include the following posts.
- Born in Liverpool
- Meets Paul McCartney
- Marries Yoko Ono
- Shot by Mark Chapman
In your earnings page, you will only see earnings on posts or newslines that have actually generated earnings. The “post” tab shows earnings from individual posts, while the “Newslines” tab shows earnings when a newsline with one of your posts on it earns money.In the John Lennon example above, if you wrote posts 1 and 2 you would get 50% of the available income of the newsline when someone looks at the newsline and sees all the posts (minus the amount to the editors of each post on the newsline).You get a higher percentage if income on individual posts because you are the only person writing that post (minus the amount to the editor of that post).
Please be aware that the earning amounts are in cents. Keep adding posts and promoting your posts and newslines to build up your total. Remember you are building long-term earnings.
