    Question [Content site] SetUpYourWebsites.com

    Has anyone heard of setupyourwebsites.com? You review websites and get paid, but I'm wondering if this is worth writing for. Is the pay worth it and do they pay out like they claim? Thanks

    <rant> IMNSHO, all these "content" and "review" sites are nothing more than harvesters for search engine traffic. (And as a researcher by day, I'm increasingly irritated by the rising tide of &^@$# I have to wade through to find useful information. </rant>

    That being said, since they provide no info without surrendering an email address, this one sounds particularly phishy.

    Agreed. Complete waste of time for the writer in terms of cash or experience, actively detrimental to the web as a whole. I'm sure there are some good ones out there, and I have no idea about this one specifically, but most of them are the equivalent of turning tricks in a dark alley downtown.
