Helium is not actually an article directory but one can submit their articles and earn too. The earnings depend on the traffic your articles generates. Rather, the more vies your articles attract, the more you earn.
Helium is very popular among youth as well as adults. One can submit articles under various categories.
- Helium’s best writers earn cash through:
- Upfront Payments for contributed work
- Daily revenue share
- Writing contests
Helium also acts as a marketplace for writers and publishers.
But I think they don't encourage Indian writers and I don't know about other excluded countries.
