I did a little bookmark scrub this morning and thought I would share the
remaining content of my "Online Money" folder. To warn you, there are
certain things that I don't like and never bookmark so:
What's NOT included: Taking Surveys, Get Paid to Surf the Internet, MLM, Programs with a ton of negative user experiences (based on researching forums, Googling them, etc.), Contest Sites, "Buy my DVD, CD, Audiobook", etc.
What IS included: Things you can use to legitimately make money online - Everything from Getting Paid to review software to good ole' Adsense.
Adbrite - Sell space on your site for text ads
BidVertiser - PPC (pay per click) program with a low $10 payout
Chitika - Their eMiniMalls service has shown great results for many
Bloggers and site owners. You choose a keyword and they show relevant
products on your site using a pretty unique interface.
Google Adsense - Come on, you don't need an explanation. These ads are all over the place. Google displays relevant ads based on your site's content
- Create simple text ads and choose keywords that determine when they
are displayed. This is where the Adsense Content comes from. You do not
need a site for this.
H3.com - Get paid
to fill jobs. Commissions range from $50-$5,000. It all depends on how
tough the job is to fill and how desperate the hiring company is. This
is another one that's tough to explain.
Add their job board to your site. They then post jobs based on the
geographic location of visitors and the position types you pre-select. I
tried it and I they continually report that I sent 0 visitors and I know
that's not right. Nevertheless, I may have an isolated problem so they
make the list.
Text Link Ads
- I have never made a dime here but I know people that have. You can
earn by sending advertisers to them or by selling spots on your site.
You must have a real site or blog to do this - nothing on a shared
domain (i.e. /blogspot).
Yahoo Publisher Network- This is the Yahoo version of Google Adsense.
