Unlike some other bookmarking sites, RedGage does not depend on direct click through to your website or blog for you to receive payment. They have a payment scale used on content, quality, and frequency of posts. That is unique to every user. RedGage has their own debit card, which you can request. Once your payment level has reached $25. RedGage allows you to post direct blog posts, links from your own blog posts, and links to other content that you have on the Internet.

Hub Pages and Squidoo, which were originally known as a “Web 2.0″ sites also offers the opportunity to build single page hubs or squids that incorporate not just AdSense, but also Amazon and other affiliate programs. Both of these sites do allow that you can use content from other sites. This means you could easily create a hub or squids from articles, or from individual blog post.
