How did you become indexed in LexisNexis, etc.? Did someone ask from Newstex contact you? Even though it does not pay much monetarily, it is cool that your blog is included in such databases as LexisNexis!
Hey Isabelle! Yes, Newstex contacted me about six months ago about indexing my blog and since it doesn’t have any effect on the user experience of the blog (like ads can), I went for it. The database vendors can choose from which blogs they want to index in their product. I didn’t even know I was in LexisNexis until I got the letter. It’s beyond bizarre.
Hah! I got $6.56 from Newstex for July. That’s a huge increase from my $0.13 in June. If I continue that exponential increase of several thousand percent each month I should soon be rich enough to buy Google (market capitalization approximately $217 billion).
