Is DocCash Worth The Hype?

Launched at TechCrunch40 by Jason Nazar and Alon Shwartz, DocStoc is a site like Scribd where you can upload your DocCashdocuments and share them easily. Very recently DocStoc has announced a revenue sharing program called DocCash, and with that the internet and social media sites have gone ga ga over it. So I thought I might check it out as well.

With DocCash, you can make money from the documents you upload on DocStock. But you must also have an Adsense account. When you sign up for DocCash, you need to associate your Adsense account with your DocStock account. Of course, if you don't have an Adsense account then DocStock would help you create one.

Now along with your uploaded documents, DocStock would display ads using your Adsense account. And whenever a viewer would click on those ads you would earn a percentage of that revenue. The DocCash revenue sharing program would let you share the earnings in a 50/50 basis. So, the more quality documents you upload and the more you promote those contents, the more earnings you’d hopefully get from AdSense. Signing up for DocStock is free, fast and takes only a few minutes.

But my point is that why won't you upload your files to Scribd and then host it on your own website/blog and earn 100% of that Adsense revenue instead? Doesn't that makes more sense? I do understand that they have the tools to help you promote your documents on Twitter and Facebook, but at the end of the day it's you who has to promote your documents.

DocCash would be lucrative for those who don't own a blog and neither would like to go through the burden of self-host their files. So if you are one of them, or for some other reason want to give DocCash a try, you can sign up from here.

I tried Docstoc and was unable to associate my adsense account with docstoc. Object Reference not set. You are right Rajti.

This is definitely something worth checking out, thanks for sharing this! I agree with what you said, this would probably work for those who don't host their own blogs. 50/50 revenue sharing sounds pretty fair, any thoughts? Thanks!

So Did you ever try the DocCash revenue sharing program? or do you get bucks by using this program? Seems it's interesting

The reason to do it is because hosting them on your own blog won't get you as much traffic you will receive from the search engines and from the Docstoc community.

It's much like article marketing and can drive large amounts of targeted traffic to you website or affiliate links.

I have been using them for quite some time with great success.

Having adsense it just icing on the cake!

Yes, it's worth the hype.
It's one of those things that you don't really get any value out of it until you use it regularly. Plus the more places for revenue streams the better, right?

doc cash is launched as something innovative and lucrative... and i am sure that now a lot of people now have had their accounts in there....but no matter whether its or not worth hype... the thing is that its in news and... people are talking about it....

and its providing the facility for ad-sense... and more channels to promote your uploaded piece... which sounds relevant... so the hype is somewhat right.. i think..

There are several healthcare companies who are employing work at home billers as well as programmers to dedicate yourself all of them. This is more convenient because this will save a lot of time and. You shouldn't have to think of what to wear for function or drive to work because jobs are done on the internet. However, programmers and billers that like to work in your own home should be self-disciplined. They must be accountable enough to do their function even without supervision. The task duties are the exact same. The only distinction is the work place.
