How Much Money Do You Earn per View On Medium?

  • 2 min read

For some, it might be shocking!

As you can see from the screenshot in the featured image it’s definitely less than you might think.

On average, it’s about $0.01-$0.03 per view.

I totally get it if the $0.01-$0.03 per view makes you sad, but you have to remember that Medium is a content mill.

Content mills pay little.

While I love writing on this platform, Medium doesn’t pay much.

For new content writers a decent starting rate is at least $0.10 to $0.12 per word.

When you’re writing on Medium you’re part of the internet publishing industry.

The characteristics of Medium as a content mill:

  • publishes a ton of content by multiple writers — 75M stories to date
  • in general, writers create cheap content
  • publish a lot of content for little money — only 6% earn $100 per month
  • often writers are not experts in their fields
