Compensation

Handshake 2.0 compensates content creators per post with a base payment plus a bonus for the number of Unique Views of the site within 7 days of the post.

Our base payment per post is $30.  The bonus schedule follows.

We use Google Analytics to determine the number of Unique Views.  Below are compensation examples which show screenshots from Google Analytics for seven days of site activity for two posts.  While the screenshots show both Pageviews and Unique Views, note that our bonus is based on Unique Views, not Pageviews.

We will send you a report on the traffic your post receives via email after 7 days.
