If you've been a part of the eHow website for some time then you may know about the mess over U.S. writers not being compensated for their articles viewed on the new UK eHow site. This has made many writers angry and some have even quit eHow entirely. Well, if I heard this video blog correctly, (click here to see it) then it seems the U.S. writers are going to be compensated for the UK views in the payment made in early February.
Can this be True?
This was brought to my attention when I read Katrina's blog Writing Online for Profit so I went over to eHow and watched the video myself. From the sounds of it, they are going to give out a "generous payment" to writers for their past UK views. However, there are some questions in the forum as to whether they meant they would reimburse the U.S. writers for UK views or reimburse UK writers for views. Also, since they supposedly didn't keep track of UK views vs U.S. views, there is some question as to how they will know how much to give each writer. I think this will be interesting to watch play out.
Stick with eHow
What do you think the video blog is saying?
