Make Money Online by Answering Questions

Updated on March 13, 2011

Making Money From Home With Simple Answers

If you like answering online questions, such as the ones that are posted in Yahoo! Answers, you know how easy and fin it can be. However, it can be even more than that. With the new crop of paid question sits, you don't have to answer online questions for free. You can actually make money at home by doing so. Some sites allow members to answer question and get paid a portion of the money that the answer pages generate.

Answering questions for pay is a way to earn residual, passive income. Your answers keep earning long after you have entered the answers. It's a fun, easy way to earn money from home, and there's no stress involved. There are no deadlines, no quotas and no edits for you to deal with. The answers you write can be written just the way you want to. You can answer as few or as many as you like and keep earning money over time.


WebAnswers is a question site that allows members to post any question they like and to answer any questions that they feel qualified to answer. When you answer a question, ads are placed next to your answer. When your answer generates revenue from the ads next to it, you get a share of that revenue. The money is put into your WebAnswers account.

There are also other ways to make money from home through WebAnswers. You also earn money on the questions that you ask and on the quality of your participation on the site. Answers get a quality score and more money is given to those who have high scores for quality answers. The site pays members with a share of AdSense revenue. They are paid by Google rather than by the site itself. 


AnswerBunch works in much the same way as WebAnswers. Just choose some questions to provide answers for. You can use the search at the top of the page to search for questions that relate to any topic. After joining AnswerBunch, I saerched for a few topics that I am very familiar with and found a few questions that related to each.

Answering the questions us super easy since there is no minimum word count and no real guidelines. If you want people to read your question and spend time reading it, though, you should take the time to make it informative and of a length that will keep people reading. You are paid a share of the ad revenue that is placed next to your question. You can answer as many questions as you like. The only rule that I've found is that you can't plagiarize anyone in your answer, which is a rule that every question and answer site has.

The site pays you through PayPal once you reach the minimum payout amount of $5. Once you reach the amount and you want to be paid, simply request a payment through the site and the payment will be sent to your PayPal account. There is no limit to how much money you can make from home through the site.

Earn a Revenue Share From AnswersPay

AnswersPay is another question site that allows members to earn money through their Google AdSense accounts. Members use their AdSense publisher ID number to earn a share of the revenue earned from their answers. When you earn money though AdSense, there is a minimum payout of $100 before you are paid.

The site began in February, 2011 and is too new to earn much for answerers at this stage, but the site is growing and it has a high AdSense share for members who answer questions well. If your answer is chosen as the best answer, you earn a whopping 70 percent of the AdSense revenue for that page.
