Can you actually make money on this website? I know it is still in beta, and that is has earning potential. But is it only based on PPC or does it have CPM as well?
I make a decent amount of money on Webanswers. I believe they employ both PPC and CPM.
I was very active a year or two ago but am far less active now - I have about 4000 answers on there and about 1500 questions. Out of all the sites I write on WA is the second best in terms of revenue - I am barely active there now and I still earn $100 or more on there every month.
Like Hubpages, you'll do better on there with quality answers....
...I note that you have to have an Adsense account - Webanswers doesn't pay you - they share Google Ad impressions with you.
Thanks SimeyC. In regards to the question above, is it just PPC or is it a mixture with CPM? I have just started and I need 50 answers to enable my adsense account. I am at 35 as of this post so I will see where that goes. 100 a month sounds great, but that is a lot of answers!
I'm not sure - on some subjects I get a lot of clicks, however on others I do earn revenue - so I assume that is CPM and PPC!
What I did when I was active was try to answer 10 questions a day - I could produce 10 pretty decent answers (200+ words) on subjects that I know a lot about. One other thing to do is ask a lot of decent questions - you earn impressions on your questions too.
Also - if a question is awarded there;s no point in answering as you won't get any impressions - when the question has been awarded, the questioner, the awarded answer and Webanswers share the impressions - every other answer doesn't get anything!
BTW I have written a couple of articles about Webanswers - one fairly recently - you can see it in my profile...
Thanks for all of the great info. I am trying to generate 500-800 dollars of passive income in multiple streams when I go to Thailand. This sounds like a good egg to have.
I'm not so sure about the passive part. I answered a couple hundred questions and quit for a few weeks; income promptly fell to zero. I also see that many people there say the same thing.
Simey may be the exception to a general rule that you either keep answering questions or don't earn.
I have also had a problem signing up for adsense now. Says that they need to upgrade to the adsense API. Tons of people are affected by this. Are you?

My google adsense is "ACTIVE" already in my earnings settings but when I go to my google adsense account my application still looks pending.It's like what you see in the picture. Why is that?

The site went off line over a year ago, but if you answered questions on the site, what if anything have you done with your answers? Maybe re-posted them on a blog?

Some people have said they've turned off HP Ads and just use Adsense and actually make more money from Adsense. I'm considering trying that out and was curious how much more some of you are making just through Adsense....
