What the End of Yahoo’s Contributor Network Means for Freelancers | The Freelancer, by Contently

Yahoo, which bought up the content farm Associated Content in 2005 and created its own Yahoo Voices, is finally turning the farm into condos. According to The Freelancer, Yahoo is not only dropping its low-paying content, but shutting it completely down as well, so contributors should copy and re-post their contributions (or make screenshots, at the very least) to prove their articles existed.

From The Freelancer:

Yahoo will give final performance payments in August, but Contributors should act quickly to make sure they have evidence of their writing online. Freedom With Writing suggests a number of alternative websites to self-publish articles, including HubPages, which similarly offers traffic-based payments to writers.

So Yahoo Voices contributors — take heed.
