Recycle your writing for cash

If you have old written content in electronic format, why not dig it out and upload it to Wikinut? You'll then be able to start earning money from your existing work.

Give your words a quick face lift

Once you've found your old words, you should review them to see if they need some small amends to make them more suitable for online use. To start with, ensure your text is split into small, consumable paragraphs. Online readers tend to scan articles, and large blocks of text do not work well.

Secondly, check to see if you words are optimised to attract readers from search engines. Try to use relevant keywords in titles and throughout your content. For more details about this, read our beginners guide to SEO.

Split big articles and interlink

If you have long essays or pieces, you may find it better to split them down into multiple pages of 500 - 1000 words, and interlink them together. This will help your traffic in 2 ways.

First, you'll have multiple chances to attract traffic and hence readers, rather than just one. And secondly, by interlinking your pages you'll begin to create a small hub of content that will be stronger than a single solitary page.

Add images and tags

Finally, when you upload your work to Wikinut, make sure you try to add at least one image to each page if possible. Photos and images are proven ways of generating interest in your writing, and help draw readers attention when on Wikinut index pages.

Pay special attention to adding tags to your page - these help from both an SEO perspective and also mean you're more likely to get traffic internally from Wikinut readers. This is because you'll find a list of similar pages and tags in the right menu of each page, and readers may find your pages by clicking from another author's page.

So if you aren't already a member, why not join Wikinut today and get recycling?
