I have not heard of it. I have to explore and see. But as Chameli mentioned in the above post that not everyone can get the monetary benefits, I have to really see of it works for Indian users.

earnings on medium depends on number of claps you get. Therefore don't expect to earn much.

So are you using the Medium Partners Program? I don't understand what you mean by earnings based on "claps".

https://help.medium.com/hc/en-us/articl ... er-Program gives a good idea behind the earnings part of Medium.

"Claps" are a little like reputation on ForumCoin or Likes. But... on Medium they kind of give an indication into the effort, ingenuity or helpfulness behind an article.

@sam people are abusing the clap system. They are paying people to clap on their medium content. Therefore, I believe claps are no longer the standard of the content.

I am very pleased that I can use this platform because as you say it is respected and does have a wide reach. I use it to circulate my content but also it is very informative and I learn a lot.

They now have a Partners Programs and supposedly you can get hired as a writer. I have never used the program.


This sounds like a great place to write articles, drive traffic to your blogs and a good place for back links, thanks for the information. I have never heard about medium before.. I think I will take a look at it.
One quick question though, does it also permit poetry to be published?

By "republish" do you articles that have been published else where before?

If the answer is yes, then the is worth to use for backlinks for traffic purposes. Republishing is good for as long as the way it is done is best in the seo side.

@kat82 medium allows you to republish your article. You don't even have to copy paste your article, you can easily import your article by adding your article link. Publishing the article will leave a link on the bottom that says originally published on xyx dot com

Thanks for clarifying. Let me join instantly and see if they will allow me do that. Hopefully there are other earning ways on site.

You can earn from a medium by doing guest posting for other. For example, You can offer a service of guest posting on medium for $20. Use Facebook groups to get clients. I am seeing many of them doing this.
