Steer Clear of EHOW Scam

Postby advaita » Wed Feb 03, 2010 5:02 pm

No doubt you have all heard of Ehow - the article site that 'pays' people for writing articles - well it appears they have no tbeen paying their writers everything they owe them - there is a big hooha at the moment so I am alerting everyone I can that it is probably best not to sign up for Ehow site - I was considering signing up but not any more !

I have left amessage on Griz's blog but he seems to be hibernating stil

Take a look at this unholy pile of Cow Poo - h**p://www.conversationmarketing.com/2010/01/ehow-i-call-bullshit.htm
and
h**p://www.innovativepassiveincome.com/ehow-uk-site-is-not-paying-us-writers/

written by unfortunate Ehow contributors ! It seems Ehow is going to list on the stockmarket too (they make millions - but is seems a large part of that is made by not paying their writers)

eHow is part of the DemandMedia network, a company responsible for half the crap on the Internet. (You've probably seen their ExpertVillage videos on YouTube.)

I've been making a killing on my FarmVille related articles!
Haven't heard of being duped out of any $$$ Just a rumor I suppose? Probably someone from Bukisa trying to get some affiliate referral credits -- a clever marketing propaganda I would suppose??

It's hardly just a rumour as Ehow themselves have admitted that they have made 'mistakes' - there are dozens of posts around about how Ehow didn[t pay for stuff they posted on their Uk site

So is there any recourse -- is eHow going to "make good" on their mistake?
How would they know who earned what anyway???
Please keep us updated if you follow any developments

Thanks :-)
