Earn Money Searching With Slash My Search

I just signed up for Slash My Search tonight. The idea behind this site is that you earn money every time you search using their website. Earn money by setting as your homepage. Earn even more money by using SlashMySearch as your primary search engine, the more you search the more you make, its that simple! You get paid for three levels for referrals. You never have to refer anyone, however, referring people will increase your earnings. Regardless of referrals, you will still be paid.

Of course all of this information is from the website, and I haven't had a chance to test it out yet. Since it doesn't cost anything to join though, I thought that I would give it a shot. As usual, I will keep you informed about how it goes.

In the mean time, I won't discourage anyone from joining any of the free programs even if my testing isn't complete because like I said, as long as you are not investing your hard earned cash into the program, you are not really losing anything by trying out some of the others at the same time.

Joined POAD - Many Accounts Suspended Within Hours

I joined a program called POAD a couple of days ago. I was told that it was Free during prelaunch only, and then would need to be paid for beginning next month. From the description, members should be able to earn enough to pay for their membership. As always, I had my doubts, but I decided to try it out as long as it was free.

I signed up for the program, and the first thing you were required to do was to complete ten "missions" to get you started. These were easy tasks, such as completing profile information, introductions, etc. I didn't even get through with the ten missions before I had to stop for a while. When I came back to my computer to log back in, I found that my account had been suspended.

I spoke to several other members and found that their accounts were also suspended on the same day, so I can only assume that this site is not something that I would want to bother with. I was going to give them a shot while the prelaunch was available for free, but I certainly don't want to chance spending money on this site.

GetRef - Earn Referrals and Advertising Credits

I just joined a new program called GetRef where you can earn referrals or advertisements for your programs. Once you sign up for your free account, you need to log in, then you can earn by joining programs, clicking links or referring other members. If you don't join at least one program every three months,your offers won't ever be seen by anyone, so be sure to join at least one program right away and to join another at least every three months! With such a large variety of programs out there though, this shouldn't be a problem.

Although it looks like only Gold Members can earn cash with this one, you have two options:

Buy Referrals for your program
Buy exposures for your link

I have only been a member for a few hours, but have put in my offer to buy a referral to one of my programs, and saved up over one fourth of the points needed for the second referral. I don't have any takers yet, but I just posted my offer a little while ago.

Today's Tips - Promoting Your Programs - July 11, 2007

You may recall that I previously suggested promoting your online money making programs by linking them to your blog, webpage, profile page or other places where such links are allowed. Now let me go into a little more detail on how to do this correctly for the biggest benefits.

One thing you never want to do is just make a list of links or ads because most readers will take one look at this and simply click away to another site. Nobody wants to spend their time looking at nothing but a page full of advertisements. You have to have some content to you page too.

If your page is about programs where you get paid to do various things, you don't want to just make a list of get paid to take surveys, get paid to surf, get paid for opinions, get paid to write, get paid to post, get paid to click, and get paid to play sites. Instead, you will want to incorporate the programs into a well written article that includes information about the programs you are linking.

When you are writing articles, try to keep your target audience in mind. If you are trying to attract readers who are interested in getting paid to take surveys for instance, you might want to try to include keywords such as get paid to take survey, get paid to complete surveys, or get paid for surveys along with your get paid to survey link.

The same would be true for whatever get paid for program you wish to promote. It could be anything from get paid to complete offers, get paid to eat, get paid to surf, get paid to type, get paid to write, get paid to click or anything else. The idea is the same. Choose your topic, and write your articles to include at least some sort of keywords relating to your opportunities. Be careful to choose your keywords carefully though, because they should always relate to the audience you are trying to bring in.
