ADvindicate pays $100-$150 based on an article's popularity. You are guaranteed a base payment of $100 for your article no matter its popularity, but if your article exceeds 2,000 unique page views (UPV), you will be paid .005 cents per UPV up to 10,000.

( .005 X UPV ) + 100 = PAYMENT

So if your article had 3,500 UPV, then you would earn $117.50. The article's popularity is measured over a two-week span by Google Analytics, and payment is issued after the 14th day of publication via Gusto direct deposit.
