If you write on Medium you get paid for traffic from paying members.
- It’s not views.
- It’s not claps.
- It’s not engagement.
Medium rewards you for reading time.
To be more specific:
- For Member Reading Time.
Usually, there are two waves of traffic.
🌊 The First Wave
The first one is from the Medium network and generates upfront money.
People who follow
- the publication you’re publishing with
- the category that your article is tagged in
The first wave is rich with paying Medium subscribers and upfront money.🤑
🌊 The Second Wave
Then traffic goes to ground zero OR your story hits some Google SEO.
Through Google visitors who read your stories, you can generate a long tail of search traffic.🐀
Unfortunately, this long tail traffic doesn’t pay that much anymore.
BUT you can convert readers into referred members and earn recurring income.
