Earning Guide

Milyin is an open and free-to-use platform, to help people reach their audience. At Milyin we allow all creators to earn through their content so that they can earn while creating quality content for their audience.

For every unique & genuine ad click on your Creations, you will earn $0.1. You can check your total earnings on Stats. You need minimum $1 in dues before being able to withdraw your earnings. Once you cross $1 threshold you can claim your earnings at Earnings.

By default all Creations have Google’s Automated ads enabled, allowing Creators to have ads dynamically placed in their Creations. You need NOT touch anything to start seeing ads and earnings. However, you may still customize the ads according to your preferences if needed.

Please do not spam by clicking Earning Blocks on your own Creations. We ban the IPs that are consistently spamming by Fake Clicks. In case the Creator is found to be indulged in any such activity, Milyin shall restrict Creator’s access to Earning Tools, Milyin can even temporarily/permanently ban Creators doing such activity.

Creators have granular control over how the various Earning Blocks are displayed in Creations. All creators have access to the full array of Earning Tools by default. Though some special features, require some approvals in advance.

We allow Creators to decide the Blocks that they want in their Creation, we let them place the Blocks wherever they want. You have granular control.

Google AdSense, Amazon India Affiliate, and Bluehost India Affiliate are 3 services that we currently support for Earnings.

You can also set your default Preferences so that all future Creations will have those preferences selected as default.

Configuring it is super simple, by default you will see 3 options, “Google”“Amazon”“Bluehost”.

So, let’s start with them.

Google

Google AdSense is the most popular Ad revenue generator for the internet.

It’s widely popular, it’s got a large number of companies that want to market their products or services. This gives Google the capability to show the most relevant ads to people as possible.

You can choose to place Ads wherever you like, the content of each ad is managed by Google.

Google is smart, they use complex algorithms and analyze your Creation, and take into account the interests of every individual from your audience, to select targeted ads for them.

That’s why Google should select the right ads for your audience

Clicking on Google in Earning Tools brings up 3 options, “Automated Ads” “Repeated Blocks”“Manual Blocks”

Automated Ads

It is ON by default and uses Google’s AI-driven algorithms to place ads in suitable locations automatically.

You need not configure it further, just turn it on, and Google will handle the rest.

Repeated Blocks

With Automated Ads, you can configure the Creation to insert an Ad Block after every specified number of paragraphs.

This saves the hassle of manually inserting an ad. It is especially useful when writing long Creations, where the process of inserting the ad, again and again, can be tiring.

One thing to remember is that Milyin does not show preview for these ads in the Creation Editor, this is to keep page light, and allow easy editing. 

After Clicking Repeated Blocks, you get 2 options:

Repeated Blocks

First is the toggle to activate Repeated Blocks.

The purpose is to allow you to easily switch off the Ads. This Toggle can be used to turn on/off Automated Ads.

Insert Blocks After Every

Now, set the number of Content Blocks to skip before inserting the Block, by using the “Repeat ad after every” input box, you can type the number of paragraphs after which you repeat the Ad Block.

Please remember, that having too many ads with small paragraphs can cause people to get distracted by many ads. 

One thing to remember is that Google AdSense Ad Blocks are really heavy in terms of size, so they impact page speed a lot, so it is advised to not use too many blocks as it would make Creation slow to load.

Therefore have a clear thought about how many paragraphs gap would be enough to make it non-distracting yet noticeable. Usually, a 6-8 paragraph gap is sufficient. 

Please don’t be greedy with your ads. Ads negatively impact site speed and user experience. Repeating Ad after every 1-2 paragraphs can slow down your Creation, and increase its loading time, this can lead to fewer views and further cause less income.

Moreover Milyin values user experience. Having a Creation overloaded with distracting Ads can cause Milyin to take action against you.

Repeating ads after short intervals with short paragraphs is the most common culprit for deteriorated user experience.

If you are Creation has mostly small Paragraphs repeating ads will be good, but if you have creations with bigger paragraphs then trying repeating ads after 6-8 paragraphs can be fine too.

Manual Blocks

Manual Ads can be used to insert an Ad Unit wherever the cursor currently is in your Creation Editor.

As the name suggests, it inserts only 1 Ad Unit wherever you want. Sometimes after long paragraphs or after a lot of information you want your Creation to have an Ad Block, this can be effectively used in such cases.

Previewing an actual Ad can cause performance issues while editing a Creation.

Lower-end devices can struggle in having ads while editing the paragraphs around them.

At the same time, Ads are also known to consume the internet, so having Ads while editing can lead to unnecessary usage of data.

So, instead of showing an actual Ad after being inserted, we just show a placeholder “Example Ad”, this Example Ad is replaced with the actual ad when it is actually viewed.

Manual Ad Blocks

Manual Ad Toggle can be used to turn on or off the Ads. It is a master toggle, so if you have few ads inserted in Creation, which you want to disable temporarily, you can do it using this Toggle.

The placeholders of Ad inserted in the Creation content, remain intact so that you know where the ad earlier was placed, but the placeholder is removed and no Ad Block is shown in Creation.

This allows you to disable Ad Blocks without removing them. When you enable it back again, you wouldn’t need to place the Ad Blocks again, the Ad Blocks inserted earlier remain intact.

Insert Block

This button is used to Insert the Block.

Clicking this button hides the Earning Tools and inserts a placeholder “Example Ad” at the cursor location.

Sometimes we do not want ads in a particular region, or we have a Creation with some big paragraphs and some really small paragraphs, so this can be really useful, in such cases.

Note

Google Ads click statistics are not visible in Individual Creation Stats or Daily Stats, as we aren’t allowed to track clicks per Creation bases. We update overall clicks for your entire account every few days. This is done to comply with Google AdSense Policies.

Updating these statistics can take up to 15 days sometimes.

Amazon

Amazon India Affiliate, allows you to use any Amazon India Product and put it on Milyin as an Affiliate Link/Image.

An Affiliate link is not an ordinary link. Milyin puts its own code into the amazon link so that Amazon knows that the customer came from Milyin. So if a customer purchases anything, we get a small percentage commission on it.

And the code inserted in the URL is unique to Milyin. This code acts as an identifier and is critical for Amazon in recognizing that the customer was directed through Milyin, and it also helps Milyin track the link clicks.

Usually, Creations that are reviews of a particular product, or have a mention of anything that gets sold on Amazon benefit from this.

Though all Creations can benefit from Amazon Affiliate. The fact that Amazon Affiliate can make you earn commission on product sales really motivates a lot of Creators towards it.

Amazon can be found in Earning Tools. After that, you can choose from the options available there.

You would have 4 options: “Auto Affiliate Blocks”, “Text Link”, “Image Link”, “Repeated Affiliate Blocks”

Auto Affiliate Links

Auto Affiliate Links is a really great feature, that uses Milyin’s database of Popular Amazon products, and inserts Amazon Affiliate Blocks at suitable places across your Creation.

Milyin will analyze your Creation and place Ads where there are high chances of getting clicks.

The Amazon.in products that are displayed as Affiliate Blocks are selected from a range of popular products that Milyin has its database.

The products shown on any given Creation are selected on the following basis:

  1. The Auto Affiliate Links uses some popular products on Amazon, that is generalized and almost all demographics are likely to buy them.
  2. Milyin uses the Hashtags and Title of your Creation to find Products from Milyin’s Database of Amazon.in Products having similar words

These selected products are shown as Image Banner at a suitable location across your Creation, along with a Shop Now button, clicking the image or product takes you to the Affiliate URL of the product.

Text Link

Text Link inserts a Link into your Creation with easy to read text, which directs the user to your specified Product’s Amazon affiliate link.

Remember that we can share 80% of the revenue with you when you get us an Amazon Affiliate sale from our links. This can drastically improve your revenue. But to be eligible for receiving 80% on sales, you need to be approved by Milyin before the sale.

Text Links are usually used to mention a product inside paragraphs. You can specify a Text to Display that on the frontend will be used to hold the actual link.

Amazon.in Product Link

First of all, you need the particular product that you want to link. So get the link of the product from Amazon.in for the particular product, then paste it in “Amazon.in Product Link”, Milyin will try to generate an Affiliate Link from the product.

If it fails you will be notified by a message “Please type Valid Amazon.in Product Link in the input field”

If successful, it will show the affiliate link for your product at the bottom in a textarea.

Now, you configure the Text to Display.

Text to Display

The link that you just generated won’t look good if directly inserted in your Creation. It needs to be wrapped in readable text. So that user reads that friendly text and clicks on it, to be directed to the actual link.

That’s why we have the “Text to Display” input field.

You can type in whatever text you want your link to appear as, and then click Insert Affiliate Link, and we would handle the rest. 🙂

Once you are satisfied you can click the “Insert Affiliate Link” button to insert it into the Creation.

Image Links

Images can sometimes be better in Affiliate products. This is because an Image can explain what the product actually is in a better way.

Like you set a Thumbnail on Milyin, the sellers on Amazon also set a Thumbnail of the products.

Milyin can easily fetch these images for you.

When you set an Amazon Product Link, we can fetch its Thumbnail, so you don’t need to upload anything. You just specify the size of the image and the alignment of the image.

Amazon.in Product Link

First of all, you need the particular product that you want to link. So get the link of the product from Amazon.in for the particular product, then paste it in “Amazon.in Product Link”, Milyin will try to generate an Affiliate Link from the product.

If it fails you will be notified by a message “Please type Valid Amazon.in Product Link in the input field”

If successful, it will show the affiliate link for your product at the bottom in a textarea.

Now, you configure the Text to Display.

Image Size

Amazon by default provides 3 Image sizes. So we allow you to choose the one that you want.

Usually, these images are used for just preview, and not for actually analyzing the product, so medium and small are good enough sizes, but you still can have a large image if you want.

The Image inserted is a link too. Clicking the image directs them to the specified product’s Affiliate link. 

Basically, it can be considered as a Link where instead of Text to Display we have the product image.

Image Alignment

Image Alignment is the same as Text alignment. you can select whether you want your images to appear to the left or right or center and we will handle the rest.

By default, images are configured to be inserted with Center Alignment.

After setting Size and Alignment, you are good to insert the product image. Click “Insert Product Image” to insert the image wherever the cursor currently is positioned in your Creation.

Repeated Affiliate Blocks

Repeated Affiliate Blocks allow you to configure specific Amazon products that you think to suit your Creation. These products are chosen at random and placed in your Creation at regular intervals.

Manually Add Amazon Products, that would be randomly added to Creation as Affiliate Links (with images) after specified intervals. Type in product URL, and then click “Add to Blocks”.

Repeated Blocks

The toggle is used to activate the Repeated Blocks of Amazon Affiliate Links.

The purpose is to allow you to easily switch off the Blocks. Amazon.in Product Links

Amazon.in Product Link

Here the process is slightly different from previous examples. so Please Read CAREFULLY.

The initial step of pasting the URL is the same as the previous use cases.

You need the particular product that you want to link. So get the link of the product from Amazon.in for the particular product, then paste it in “Amazon.in Product Link”, Milyin will try to generate an Affiliate Link from the product.

If it fails you will be notified by a message “Please type Valid Amazon.in Product Link in the input field”

If successful, it will show the affiliate link for your product at the bottom in a textarea.

Now, you need to click “Add to Blocks”

This adds the product to a list of Affiliate Links visible below.

This list has each link you add to your Creation for Repeated Affiliate Blocks.

You can click on the cross next to the link to delete any link you don’t want.

Remember The Link that you type only becomes a Block after you click “Add To Blocks”, if you don’t click it, Milyin will NOT save that particular link as Repeated Affiliate Block.

Repeat Block After Every

Now, set the number of Content Blocks to skip before inserting the Amazon Repeated Block, by using the “Repeat Block after every” input box, you can type the number of paragraphs after which your Affiliate Block Repeats

Please remember, that having too many ads with small paragraphs can cause people to get distracted by many ads. 

Amazon Affiliate Blocks generally are better optimized and have a lesser impact on performance. So Amazon Affiliate Blocks can make your Creation still perform well enough.

Therefore have a clear thought about how many paragraphs gap would be enough to make it non-distracting yet noticeable. Usually, a 6-8 paragraph gap is sufficient. 

Bluehost

Bluehost is a not really popular Affiliate service.

It primarily provides server hosting, and Milyin’s servers also run on Bluehost.

But Server relates stuff is a really niche market, so why talk about that?

Well, the answer is simple, their payments are high.

While the earnings per click is the same on all platforms, The Affiliate commission is really high for Bluehost.

For each sale, regardless of price, Bluehost can earn you Rs.4000 that is around $45

That’s a big amount, so why not try it.

It can be a jackpot if you write a creation that gets even 1 sale through it.

Though they usually work on Creations that are really targetted to Web Servers and similar topics.

Text Link

Bluehost has provided us with a unique Affiliate Link that works across the entire site. We insert it for all your Creations when you use the Text Link functionality. 

Insert a Link for Bluehost Affiliate, with the text of your choice. You have to set an Easy read Text to Display so that people know what they are clicking.

Text Link is inserted in the creation editor at your current cursor location.

Text to Display

It is the Text that wraps the actual Link. Text to Display usually works best with 3-10 words.

You can set any attractive text you want, and when you insert it into your Creation, the actual Bluehost Affiliate Link is wrapped in the Text you just configured.

This allows you to set an attractive text that is friendly to the reader, and easily understandable, and takes you to the actual link upon Click.

Widget Alignment

As the name suggests Widgets can be positioned left, right, or Center of the Creation.

By default, we use Center as the alignment for the Widgets. Though it is up to you.

Widgets that are wider work better with center alignment, while widgets that are taller work equally well with all alignments.

Selecting the actual widget can be tricky, we have a fairly healthy variety of Widgets available for you.

We have some that are square, others really wide, others really tall, with each widget we have mentioned its size too.

Commission Approved

You can get a percentage share of the revenue we get if we get a sale through you(You need the approval to be “Commission Approved” for percentage share)

We only consider one click per user in 24 hours. Multiple clicks for a given revenue type on a given Creation counts as just one Click.

But, you get the money (granted that you get approved before the sale) if the repetitive click converts an affiliate sale.

What is Commission Approved?

The 80% revenue of Affiliate sales is not available for everyone. It is membership-based. The Cost Per Click is available for everyone by default (unless we ban you), so you get $0.1 per click on ads and affiliate banners/ads/links/images when illegible. But, to get an 80% share of Affiliate sales, you need to write to us at [email protected] for approval. Once approved, you can get 80% of the affiliate sales revenue that Milyin will receive from sales routed through you to our affiliate partners.
