The Cheapest Paid Wiki On The Net

Another day, another paid wiki. That was my original reaction to this review request. From the same people that brought you the Five Dollar Wiki and the One Buck Wiki comes yet another paid wiki site and this time, it’s even cheaper. If you can’t afford to pay a full dollar for a wiki page, then you might want to consider the Quarter Wiki. You can probably guess where this is going.

Is Really a Quarter?

The Million Dollar Wiki sold each page for a hundred dollars. The Five Dollar Wiki started out selling its pages for five dollars each, but this price rises quickly with every 1000 pages sold. A similar scheme was implemented at the One Buck Wiki, except the first 999 pages were sold for — you guessed it — a buck.

The Quarter Wiki does not make use of this escalating price scheme, instead selling all of its pages for just a quarter. They guarantee that the site will stay alive for at least fifteen years, meaning that each year will cost you less than 2 cents. You’d be hard-pressed to find a cheaper paid wiki site.

Extra Features

The provided FAQ and purchase page already tell you about why you should purchase a wiki page, so I’m not going to do that. The Quarter Wiki is fundamentally identical to every other paid wiki site on the net, but the developers have tossed in some extra features that might entice you even more than the 25 cent asking price.

When you hop over to the QuickStart Guide (which is a good idea, in and of itself), you’ll discover that this paid wiki allows you to embed videos, integrate RSS feeds, implement Google ads, and even include frames that will display full websites within your paid wiki page. I imagine that many future Quarter Wiki pages will get very spammy with flashing animations and frames all over the place. Implemented properly, however, these pages could prove to be real money-makers.

Instead of a list of categories, The Quarter Wiki features a category cloud, not unlike the tag clouds you find on many blogs. Another added bonus is the user list. Each person who purchases a page gets their own user page to further promote products, services, websites, and so on.

193 Pages Sold And Counting

When I wrote the review, The Quarter Wiki had sold a total of 193 pages to date. With some quick math, this works out to $48.25. If these guys want to make money with this site, they’re going to have to sell a heck of a lot more pages. Don’t forget that a paid review on John Chow dot Com goes for $400; they need to sell 1,600 pages just to cover the cost of this review! If you’re wondering, the page for “Johnchow” (one word) has already been purchased, but not “John Chow” (two words).

In wiki we trust? Seeing how this is (at least) the third paid wiki site from the same team of guys, they must really trust the power of the wiki. The “buy a quarter page” is worded poorly, though, because it makes me think that I’m going buying 25% of a page.

How Much Cheaper Can It Get?

The Million Dollar Wiki and the Million Euro Wiki both sell pages for $100 each. Many people thought that the price was too high and that’s where sites like the Five Dollar Wiki and One Buck Wiki came into play. Now that they’ve pushed the price down to just 25 cents, you’ve got to wonder if the developers are simply cannabalizing their own sales. Why would someone buy a five dollar page when they can spend the same amount of money and buy 20 pages on The Quarter Wiki?

Knowing them, they’ll probably come out with yet another paid wiki site in a couple of months. Can the One Penny Wiki be far behind?

    I’ve had enough of these wikis.

    1. whydowork says:

      I can’t agree with you more. Should have told this chap to hang on to his review money for another venture.

      1. Ah, we do have http://EntreWiki.com too. We should order review soon…

        1. whydowork says:

          Insane! Why would you pay for a single page when you could write a Squidoo.com lens for free, host a free blog all to yourself at WhyDoWork.com, and put up an entire site with free hosting at any number of free hosts?

          The first paid wiki worked because it was new and had a lot of hype. Take a look at the Alexa graph for milliondollarwiki now. Where do you think it will be a year from now? πŸ’‘

          1. Ah, great question. If you look at Squidoo.com, there’s over 40% of spam. By charge a small fee, we have eliminated spam all together. And our policies state that your account and pages will be permanently removed if you start spamming. I remember first finding out about Squidoo because someone left a spam comment on my blog here: http://zedomax.com

          2. Ok you got a point, but how many paid wiki’s can we keep on looking into. I’m not even going to bother open this site up. In my opinion you threw away $400.

            We’re no longer hyped up about the idea of a paid wiki.

          3. Who’s “we”? Do you speak for the whole world?

      2. Etienne Teo says:

        Too many wiki, i am just going to stick to wikipedia for the information.

    2. At a quarter, you can really lose here. Put one AdSense + one click = you made your money back.

      1. Jack says:

        it’s definetily you have too many money to waste dude.
        or let me guess, you didn’t do this for -selling page- money? what is your plan? are you going to monetize the traffics or the pagerank of the quarterwiki site it self?
        smart idea anyway, it’s just.. i don’t know, does it worh for johnchow $400 reviewMe review?

        1. Hmmm… our plan is to become bigger than Wikipedia if that’s what you are asking. That’s our plan. So a reviewme on Johnchow is worth it to send out a buzz for this site. Otherwise, no one would order a review on John Chow dot com

          Now, let me ask you, what is worth a $400 review? Is there such thing as what websites are worth a review for $400? I think that’s matter of personal opinion and in this case, we simply thought JohnChow is the best bet as far as sending out an initial buzz to the money making blogsphere that “we are here”.

          1. Wait, seriously…your plan is to become bigger than Wikipedia? Seriously? You think a paid wiki full of affiliate links will ever become bigger than Wikipedia….the Zero Dollar Wiki?

          2. Bigger than Wikipedia!? Haha, clearly you have never seen their statistics page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Statistics

            You have no chance.

          3. Wikipedia will always require millions of dollar to run itself, using all that money to hire thousands of moderators and staff just to fight spam. The Quarter Wiki needs no moderators so we are able to grow exponentially once we reach a certain point since we can put that money back into advertising. Besides, who likes entering text into those annoying CAPTCHAs everytime you edit something? Wikipedia will always live but it’s not fun anymore for most people since they block out your edits, URLs, or whatever.
            I even tried to make a new page on Wikipedia, they said it was “spammy” and delete it right away. How will they grow if users can’t even make new content? On the bright side, the Quarter Wiki let’s you buy your page , your have the right to write on your own encyclopedia for just a quarter and no moderators that’d bother you.

            Now, let me ask you, does stats tell everything? Did Google ever think Wikipedia would be this big today? (No, it was more like a slap on their wrists, Google didn’t know how Wikipedia started taking over most of their search terms.)

          4. Everything you said there is why Wikipedia is so good. When you created a page and they deleted it because it was “spammy” …. well, it probably was. Any time you have a site where people can post whatever they want with no moderators (not even self-moderation) you’re going to get a ton of junk. I’m not saying that the wiki’s are a bad idea (I think the first was was a brilliant idea just as the first million dollar homepage was), but to think that it will be better/bigger than wikipedia is just foolish.

          5. Well, once a American President said, “What you think is what you get”. If that’s true, what we think is what we will get. Did you know every human being can fly if they jumped off a 30 story building? But the reason 99.9999% fail is because they can’t believe 100% in their heart that a human being can fly. If you believe 100% in your goals, you will likely achieve them no matter how hard it may be or even impossible.

          6. What are you.. seven? Honestly, reread what you just said. This isn’t preschool buddy. Quit dreaming.

          7. Why, what pre-school did you go to? πŸ˜†

        2. Ah, here’s John’s advice we took to our hearts:
          http://www.johnchow.com/the-art-of-the-ramp/

        3. Etienne Teo says:

          1,600 pages which is what this chap have to sell to break even on just john’s review, his hosting and misc is still not included.

          1. Yes, we are not trying to break even with one review on John Chow. BUT, we’ve notice that every John Chow review has the John Chow effect. Besides, John Chow readers are our best customers. πŸ™‚
            You can refer to our FAQ here:
            http://quarterwiki.com/The_Quarter_Wiki:FAQ

    3. Michael Talk says:

      Same, at first it was OK it is old now!

      1. Hey, we are just tryin’ to spread cheap wiki pages, didn’t mean to offend you.

    4. We need a Wiki about paid Wikis…when will the madness end??! 😯

      1. Oh great idea! Wiki about paid wikis! You know, there’s digg about paid wiki already, http://pwigg.com LOL…madness will continue thanks to your new idea! πŸ™‚

        1. Angel says:

          How could you possibly become bigger than Wikipedia?

          1. Laptop Deals says:

            Oops, you shouldn’t have posted that, now a human reviewer will check it out πŸ™‚ Just kiding, thats actually impressive.

            Can the pages be re-sold later?

          2. Angel says:

            That doesn’t make you bigger than Wikipedia — not even close.

          3. Sure, pages can be sold at anytime. Values of pages can be worth hundreds or even thousands within weeks depending on whether you put great content on it and Google ranks you next to Wikipedia. I am sure a search term like “iPod wiki” or “iPhone wiki” could be worth at least 20 grand if you show up right next to Wikipedia.

          4. Hi Angel. Yes, we didn’t say we “were” bigger, we “will” be bigger and that’s our goal. Every man in the world is free to choose his goals regardless of how hard they may be. I wouldn’t tell you to become the best Golf Pro in the world or that you can’t become one either.

          5. Simon Koldyk says:

            Problem is people search for “digital camera” not with the wiki at the end. Wikipedia comes up for “digital camera” which is where it really gets the hits.

          6. That’s true but there are thousands of words ending in “wiki” that can get thousands of hits everyday and the SEO value for showing up for those words can be much valuable than just simply traffic.

    5. Jason says:

      Awaiting next original idea patiently.

      1. http://EntreWiki.com still in beta… FREE pages for bloggers! πŸ’‘ πŸ’‘ πŸ’‘

        1. Etienne Teo says:

          That is an interesting wiki, since it is free for now.

    6. I STILL haven’t received my page on the Million Dollar Wiki and Graham hasn’t answered any of my emails, and completely ignores the forum.

      Horrible, horrible service.

      1. Yea and it took him a week to approve my EntreCard ad.

      2. BTW, we are not affiliated with Million Dollar Wiki in anyway except Graham is a good friend of ours.

      3. Etienne Teo says:

        They might be too busy for now, it always happens :mrgreen:

    7. How about Pixel Wiki, or Shoe Wiki, or John Wiki, or Emoticon Wiki, or Affiliate Wiki, or Frickin’ Wiki Wiki. Enough of the wiki’s already!

      1. Great idea, we will have to make one of those wikis soon. You know, paid wikis are the untapped Web2.0 market. This might just be the start of our new Web2.0 dig.

        1. I knew I shouldn’t have given away my secrets.

          1. This guy is absolutely clueless.

          2. Well, we will keep your idea reserved for you if you are going to followthrough with it. πŸ˜€

    8. Same here. The milliondollarwiki is even for sale now on sitepoint!

    9. Wiki Wiki Wack!! πŸ˜› hope their intention is not to rank as high as wikipedia in the serps, or that that wasn’t a reason to start a wiki page.

  2. Steven says:

    What the heck is all this paid wiki stuff anyway. Sounds like some Star Wars thing.

    1. dan says:

      paid wiki collectors edition. The wiki effect

      1. LOL…that is great.

    2. Hi Steven, Paid Wiki can get you on the first page of Google for “Some Keyword Wiki”. The reason behind is that Wikipedia has no real competition other than us paid wikis.

      For an example, a lot of people will type “wiki” after they type something they want to find on Wikipedia.

      Type, “Digital Camera wiki” on Google, and you will see Digital Camera page of OneBuckWiki show up 3rd right after Wikipedia’s results. That pages is probably worth hundreds of dollars already to say the least.

      This traffic can be monetized easily through advertising on your page. You see, it’s an untapped market noone has really exploited yet.

      I hope that clears things a bit.

      1. Matthew says:

        Nice thinking! It does have some great advantages.

      2. And that really works? If I typed “wiki” after a keyword in Google, I would make sure that I clicked on the Wikipedia result. And if I accidentally went to another wiki, I would click “Back” and then click on the Wikipedia result.

        Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t see how it’s worth “hundreds of dollars” to have a result underneath Wikipedia for a search term that implies that someone is looking for Wikipedia.

        1. It could be worth if that certain search term receives 3,000 visitors per day. Advertisers and SEO companies pay thousands of dollars for high volume niche keywords. We know this since we are an SEO company too. Heck, a keyword on Google AdWords at 50 cents a click, that means it’d cost you $1,500 for such a search term DAILY! Now, we are talkin’ hundred grand for that search term.

  3. Wow… It’s funny how the original paid wiki, million dollar wiki, has been sold while all these other wikis keep popping up. Good luck recovering the money you spent for this review.

  4. Well I guess the copycats are coming out of the wood works… πŸ˜•

    1. Hey, we are providing services to make them here:
      http://zedomax.net/paid-wikis/

  5. thewild1 says:

    this is a horrible idea. in my opinion the layout of the site doesn’t even look appealing.

    1. You can check out some of the SEO benefits already showing up with One Buck Wiki here:
      http://onebuckwiki.com/blog/

      1. What’s the point of SEO if no one will stay and visit. Any good marketer knows the web isn’t just about SEO. I agree. It is a horrible design.

        1. Actually, the growth of traffic on One Buck Wiki has been steadily growing, you can check our Alexa stats if you doubt us.

  6. Mark says:

    “You walk into a video store, you see One Buck Wiki sittin’ there, there’s Quarter Wiki right beside it. Which one are you gonna pick, man?”

    1. Hey, at least you are pickin’.

  7. “you’ve got to wonder if the developers are simply cannabalizing their own sales.” – We are really building a new network of paid wikis, thousands of them! πŸ™‚

  8. Phew, that was a lot of questions… gotta go work on http://FiveDollarWiki.com now…

    1. Jack says:

      hey you miss the halfwiki? πŸ™‚

      1. What’s halfwiki???

        1. HalfDollarWiki.com ? Darn, we did forget a step there…oops.

  9. Rhys says:

    Second a wiki comes out that pays ME to advertise on them, I’m not going to buy anything more πŸ™‚

    1. DotDriven says:

      Sign me up lol. I wouldn’t even be surprised if/when someone comes out with that lol. Actually, with some incentivized offers as payment that could be a plan…doh lol.

  10. Andy Dang says:

    Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I know where this is going! There will be a wiki website for all wiki websites because the wiki sites are gonna go on forever!!

    OK OK, I never want to advertise on John’s site, or any site for that matter, but I created a video and I’m competing in the Aquafresh competition and I need ratings and views. Please check out the video and tell others about it to.

    Tools used : sony handycam, iMovie (apple software), and garage band. Time used: 7 hours. haha . please enjoy!

    1. What is the URL? (not that this is related but I might as well get my comments up)

  11. On the side note, we’ve brought pages down to a dollar for just the month of December on http://OneBuckWiki.com. Prices will go back up to $10 or more by January so.
    P.S. We’ve are also expecting PR5 on the OneBuckWiki so it might be a great chance to get in before the next Google update.

  12. Jason says:

    Meh, not gonna lie, I bought 8 pages on the quarter wiki. Sure this is getting out of control, but what does $2 hurt me? Lol. The first wiki I participated in..guess I’ll see what happens.

    1. Yey, we got new evangelists for our site! Thanks again Jason for helping promote our new site. :mrgreen:

  13. 300 pages sold! Wow… 100 pages gone in just last hour!

  14. Jason says:

    Just bought 4 more…..this is a bit addicting actually. Like putting a quarter in the prize machine….lawl.

  15. frank says:

    yeah we got taken for a ride with the millioneurowiki

  16. Laptop Deals says:

    The first thing that comes to mind is, well, three wiki sites all competing against each other?

    It must be working somehow to be ordering repeated midas touch reviews from John Chow but it’s hard to see how. Google probably hates the scheme by now so is ranking on wiki sites even possible?

    1. Yes, it’s possible, look here.
      http://www.google.com/search?q=vancouver+olympics+wiki&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
      Google is only penalizing Wikipeida mainly since they are taking over all the search terms.

  17. Laptop Deals says:

    I just bought 4 myself, at 4 pages per dollar… there is no harm. I’m thinking that my account and the pages I picked up would be worth something as a package if this site even remotely takes off.

    Pages owned: SEO + Search Engine Optimization

    I have an SEO related site launching in early spring that I want to leverage then… but any good offer before then will take these off my hands I’m sure. Business is business afterall. At a quarter per page, the price can’t be wrong.

  18. Michael says:

    Wow, you spent $400 for a negative review. That has to be the worst return on investment.

    1. Hey, we love good or bad publicity, it generates more buzz. If you weren’t interested, you probably didn’t even bother to leave a comment.

  19. Michael says:

    And also – creating a .25 wiki when you have a $1.00 (or whatever it is) is punching yourself in the face with your own fist. Like the guy said earlier… you have .25 wiki and $1.00, which are you going to choose? (if either) So you’ve pretty much killed your other one.

    /me shakes head

    1. Actually, contrary to your personal opinion, http://OneBuckWiki is predicted to have PR5 on the next Google update, which IS more valuable at this point in time than the QuarterWiki. (Well it predicts PR7 actually but we doubt that on the first update)

      But we believe the QuarterWiki might eclipse the OneBuckWiki simply because prices are lower and we will have more content sooner.

      We are adding new features to all the wikis we run, we don’t kill them, sell them, or auction off on eBay. Basically, we stand strongly by our sites so we will be around for next 15 years.

  20. lylaster says:

    horrible idea

    not only that but it’s probably the ugliest of all the paid wiki sites

    1. Care to entertain us on better idea Mr. Anonymous? 😈

  21. Ben Barden says:

    Wikipedia isn’t advertising space, it’s for informative purposes. Paid wikis seem to be advertising space. So how are you creating competition for Wikipedia?

    1. Hi Ben,
      Here’s the answer to your question. Wikipedia currently does not make use of RSS, videos, or anything really Web2.0 for that matter. By making use of new features and technologies such as RSS, users can create far more dynamic and interactive pages that can be pinged all over the blogsphere and the internet.

      Our goal for the Quarter Wiki is to provide interesting information including advertising, cartoons, movies, etc…etc…

      Who likes reading the boring Wikipeida all day anyways? Users only use Wikipedia whenever they have a need for definition or want to find out if it exists on Wikipedia.

      We are making a new paid online encyclopedia where you get to control content and does not have to be strictly informative. The content on your page can be simply interesting to bring more visitors to your page.

      It will take us at least a year to catch up to Wikipedia but once we sell about 1,000,000 pages, we should be able to be a good contender for Wikipedia.

      1. Ben Barden says:

        “Who likes reading the boring Wikipedia all day anyway?”

        Wikipedia isn’t supposed to be an entertainment site, it’s meant to be informative. In a similar way, if you look up a word in a dictionary, you expect to find a definition – not something that the author included because it was “interesting”. Some Wikipedia articles are actually very interesting indeed – however, there is a requirement to link to sources for certain things, e.g. how many registered users are on a particular site. Also, Wikipedia is meant to be neutral without a lot of marketing spin. If this makes it “boring” then so be it – at least it stops people hyping up or dumbing down articles simply due to their personal preferences.

        Personally I dislike the term “Web 2.0”, but Wikipedia’s ability to be edited by anyone is immediately a “Web 2.0” thing. You seem to be restricting users so they can only edit the pages they buy – is that correct? If this is the case and you’re also encouraging use of media (such as videos) then it sounds more like you’re trying to compete with MySpace than Wikipedia.

        Is each paid wiki separate from the rest? It sound like this is the case, if so then I would ask why are you setting up multiple wikis that may end up with a lot of duplicate content? Doesn’t that just confuse the reader?

        I think the burning question is this: who is the target audience for these paid wiki sites, i.e. the READERS rather than the people purchasing the pages? Who will read the pages? Why should they read them?

        1. Hi Ben,
          Nice set of questions.

          First of all, you may be right, we might be in for something like a MySpace/Wikipedia combo technology. Regardless, it’s something new and that does separate us from the other folks.

          As for the number of wikis we have, we are starting a new network of paid wikis, perhaps thousands of them. BUT, each will have a different niche. For example, you can take a look at http://EntreWiki.com.

          FYI, these paid wikis are the untapped Wiki market. It could confuse the readers but by building a large network of thousands of wikis, we are building network power. With network power, we can promote all the wiki sites since we have multiple sites instead of just one.

          We’ve done this network experimentation with about 25 blogs that we run and it’s always good to have one great blog but even better if you’ve got bunch of them to inter-link each other.

          This may confuse the reader but that’s the work we do. We create paid wiki sites and link them together so they will never fall apart. If you want more on this, we can talk in private as this is some of our “classified” info we are talkin’ here. My email is zedomax [at] gmail.com.

          Ah great question, our readers compose of visitors from Social Networking site such as StumbleUpon (we get about 500 visitors per day from them), visitors coming through Google search terms, and other more “classified” ways we bring readers. The reason why readers would read the pages would simply because people are in general interested in interesting content. Our goal is to provide interesting content and we hope our page-owners do that but that’s something the page-owners get to control.

  22. Neil Duckett says:

    One Buck Wiki has spammed his own review, seriously … enough is enough.

    1. Do you really expect anything more? He ripped off an original idea.

      1. Rhys says:

        Personally, I believe JC should blog keyword rich names….

    2. Hey Neil, don’t blame me, I am just being myself here. I comment a lot on every article regardless of who’s review it is. (just tryin’ to get my comments in that’s all)

  23. this guy that made all 3 of these is not making any money at all and killed the concept of the wiki – like I said wiki for everyone – bet he will make freewiki.com or something like that – horrible

    1. The reason behind monetization of wiki is not really to make money but to “keep spam out”. You can check out “spamipedia.org”, a free wiki site with tons of spam, then compare it to http://OneBuckWiki.com or http://QuarterWiki.com. Can you see the difference?

  24. This is yet another ‘phase’ or fad online, and we will continue to see people coming up with their own ‘wiki’ ideas like we saw with the Million Dollar Homepage pixel ad site for a while yet. In a year or so I bet there’ll still be the odd newbie that thinks he’s going to make a million by selling wiki pages – the first one was novel, the second was different, the third was a little irritating, and the four-hundredth? Well let’s just say it’ll be lucky to turn a profit.

    1. Agreed. It’s called originality. Get some.

  25. Yes, I can think of one wiki which will be cheaper than one cent – Free wiki! Any netpreneurs out there? πŸ™‚

    1. Hey everybody…I found a free one!! http://www.wikipedia.org πŸ˜†

      1. LOL. I can’t believe people are paying for pages on a “wiki” there are better ways for SEO’ing your site, without using a paid “wiki” which usually have no-follow attached with them to do so.

        1. Acutally, we have ALL no-follows moved, even robots.txt too. We have SEO optimized the Wiki as much as possible. Compared to Wikipedia, we are SEO magnets, no comparison. BTW, platform Wikipedia runs on, MediaWiki, comes completely SEO un-friendly from the box. We hacked their software to be “super” SEO friendly.

  26. Sounds like people are waiting for a free wiki…

    1. Yea.. when will those ever come out? πŸ™„

    2. Seems after the MillionDollarWiki, everyone is trying to cash in something.

      I mean come on they are using the mediawiki script too – if you want to know how i know, check the milliondollarwiki sales thread on sitepoint πŸ˜‰

  27. I own http://www.milliondollarwiki.com/USA and am yet to make a penny from it. Paid wikis will never be able to compete with Wikipedia, since they suck from an SEO viewpoint. Even with original content, the inner pages of the paid wikis are not linked, and most of the pages there (like mine) are filled with ads and banners, and aff links to make money from that page. Screw the content, let me make my buck mentality of paid wikis makes it worthless.

  28. Contest Beat says:

    These schemes are becoming pretty ridiculous

  29. The MillionDollarWiki, was sold to “n00bs” looking for a quick buck.
    They were told, they could easily resell the pages immediatley for $x,xxx (note: i’m not saying the owner/creator said it…just alot of people have claimed they were told this…but when I questionned them wouldn’t say who told them this)

    They saw the $100 as an investment to make $x,xxx which to these people was alot (i’m talking about your average 14 year old webpreneur), so then pages started selling and paid wiki’s have now swarmed the net πŸ™

    You could buy paid wiki pages in the hopes of fooling Google into giving you traffic (right up until they slap you for it) – OR you could subscribe to the real message of John Chow’s site: Posting consistently interesting and informed content on a popular subject, building an audience base and monetizing it. That’s the “big secret”, folks.

    But keep chasing the quick sleazy buck, I’m sure it’ll work out.

  31. Wow… almost 300 pages sold within 6 hours. 😯

  32. Where have I seen this before? Oh, right…Million Dollar Homepage – Million Quarter Homepage – Million Dime Homepage – Million Cent Homepage.

    1. But do those “Homepages” have ability to put 1024 x 740 pixel ads? 1024 x 740 = 757760 pixels. That’d cost exactly $757,760 on the Million Dollar Homepage. We offer a lot better deal for a quarter plus RSS Feeds built-in to your page, basically the Web2.0 version.

  33. Wow… 88 comments now… we need more nay-sayers! Help us create more buzz! πŸ‘Ώ πŸ‘Ώ πŸ‘Ώ

  34. Gotta go work out now, will answer nay-sayers when I get back. 😈 😈 😈

    I guess i need to come up with a nobuckwiki.com :mrgreen:

  36. bmunch says:

    @onebuckwiki – I think with your three wikis, you have enough data to do an experiment on whether the cost of a wiki is inversely correlate with the amount of spam. Post your results soon.

    1. Yes, actually it is an experiment for us too. We want to see how number of pages sell in proportion to the cost of a page. We can report it but the fact is we’ve had zero spam on all the wikis we’ve created, absolutely zilch.

  37. Missy says:

    For .25 cents, it cant hurt to buy a few pages. πŸ˜† Let me see what pages i want. I dont see why a few folks are againt the idea, if you dont like it, move on. Chow has like (what?) a thousand posts on here. Move on to the next read. ➑

    1. Missy says:

      I forgot to mention that OBW is atleast trying to build something, which means he is an entrepreneur at heart. If it works…cool, if it doenst…im sure he will try something else. That is what entrepreneurs do.

      They risk!

      1. Hey thanks Missy for the comment! πŸ™‚

  38. In all, it really can’t hurt you to try it out at a cost of a quarter.
    Even young 15 year old entrepreneurs can afford to buy these pages.

    Update: 400 pages sold within last 12 hours! Content is building like crazy! Wow, we’ve never seen such a boom with wikis since the One Buck Wiki.

    Get your pages before someone else grabs it and sell it for thousands later down the road. πŸ‘Ώ πŸ‘Ώ πŸ‘Ώ

  39. 525 pages sold within last 12 hours!

    1. Congrats! Only need about 900 more to break even (Correct me if I’m wrong)

      1. Ah, you are right, we only need 900 more! :mrgreen:

  40. [QUOTE]ow that they’ve pushed the price down to just 25 cents, you’ve got to wonder if the developers are simply cannibalizing their own sales. Why would someone buy a five dollar page when they can spend the same amount of money and buy 20 pages on The Quarter Wiki?[/QUOTE

    Quoted for truth. I really think they’re cannibalizing their sales. Should have stopped @ $1.00 wiki or the $5.00. Either way, good luck guys. πŸ™‚

  41. Mike Huang says:

    I want to add here that I took advantage of QuarterWiki when they went live on the first day and purchased the “Johnchow” page LOLS =]

    You’re not the only evil one John.

    -Mike

    1. What about “John-Chow” Mike? :mrgreen:

  42. Shiva says:

    John, you have forgot to mention that one has to purchase a minimum of 4 pages here, and it naturally comes back to One Buck Wiki!

  43. For some odd reason, we are hitting some record sales on the http://OneBuckWiki.com too. I guess if you have two choices, you can grab both, why not?

  44. hts says:

    Congrats for “onebuckwiki”. it seems they are getting quite a lot of sales (at least that’s what the owner says :D). It seems that even a negative review is valuable on john chow’s blog :). this tempts more and more to spend the “dough” on such a review πŸ˜•

    1. Thanks HTS, I think that’s what’s great about John Chow’s reviews. It’s not reviewed and done until everyone has put their thoughts into it. And whether negative or positive, it does seem to start intellectual conversations about a certain topic, not just product bashing by ignorant readers.

  45. im waiting for the 1 cent wiki

  46. Thats a very good idea maybe there will be many quality content if people will need to pay for adding content. Very good initiative and im looking forward to hear more about this project i hope it will be successful.

  47. max says:

    Hey, thanks for the support. We are working on new marketing schemes to piggyback on Google’s new project, the Knol Project. Google is basically making a paid wiki site really…

  48. I’m gettin’ kind of sick of these sites, but they must be working for the owner.
