I heard this is another way to make money similar to HubPages except you just answer questions. Can anyone provide actual numbers on earnings, and maybe compare them to your HubPages earnings?
sort by best latest
That's not bad, I mean how long does it take to answer 5 questions? $1 a day is $30 a month... way more than I'm getting on HubPages right now.
That's interesting. I wonder if it's worth it to write long, thoughtful answers as the ads displayed will be the same either way. I'm trying it out now!
I have to agree. I was on the site but spent a lot of time on the answers and did not feel it was worth my time. It might be worth it if you were the only person answering in a category but I find it unlikely.
Yes, it seems like people on HubPages are more concerned with content whereas people are trying to use WebAnswers for money. Most questions have at like 5 duplicate answers so it gets kind of hectic.
I think that is wrong. You do have to answer 50 to get started but you get paid for ads on all of your answers, you just get more if you are awarded the best answer.
Hi, i was also concerned and confused by this when i first joined. However, i decided to give the first 50 answers a shot anyway. Turns out they do NOT need to be awarded after all, which is a huge relief. So go ahead and post away!
Very good points. About how many questions do you ask per day? I answered 20 questions yesterday in about an hour so it seems like easy money to be based on the earnings I hear. Are you having any luck here on HubPages?
I usually answer 10-20 per day. However, earlier this year I wen t an entire month only answering about 3 per day and my earnings still increased from the month before. I'm doing well on Hubpages - about $40 per month.
I read your hub, it was good stuff. Would you say that it's better (read: more profitable) to to ask or answer questions?
I believe it's better to answer questions. That gives you an opportunity to be awarded "best answer," thereby earning on that question into perpetuity.
Thanks for all this info. I just made 50 questions and linked my adsense account. How do I decifer my HubPage earnings from my WebAnswers earnings?
To distinguish earnings from various sites/domains, go to the AdSense home page and click on the "My ads" button near the top. When the new page comes up, you should see a button that says "+ New URL channel." Click it and add the requisite URL.
