Create More Adsense Revenue with AnswersPay

Updated on August 9, 2011

If you're like me and enjoy making money online, you probably use Adsense as a constant revenue stream. And you probably would love extra ways to have more ads displayed, right? Have no fear, I've recently found a new site that allows Google Adsense revenue sharing.

After perusing Mark Knowles' latest articles the other day, I came across one of his hubs that mentioned AnswersPay as a possible source of Adsense income. I immediately checked it out to see what it is all about. The premise is simple: Ask a question and your Adsense ads will display on that page; answer a question and your Adsense ads will display on that page. It's really that simple!

Here's a breakdown of the Adsense revenue share plan:

  • The Administrators ads display 10% of the page views
  • The question maker's ads display 10% of the page views
  • The top 'Best Answer' maker's ads display a whopping 70% of the page views
  • The remaining answer makers' ads are split up between the remaining 10%

Similar to Hubpages, AnswersPay is a community based site. Each member is encouraged to vote on the best questions and the best answers. If you answer a question and it is voted in as the 'Best Answer', you will have your ads placed on that page for 70% of the time! Those are pretty good odds to me.

The site is relatively new, going live in February 2011. This can work in your favor, and against you all at once. With it being so new, there's not a whole lot of people using it, hence the ability to log in and dominant the question asking. Unfortunately, since there's not a huge load of traffic, it may be a while before you start seeing much money from your AnswersPay ads.

Consider this as an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of something that could end up being huge. It's entirely too easy to sit down and type out 15 minutes worth of questions every few days to turn your nose up at this site. Even if you just used the site for a week or two, in a few weeks/months/years you may begin reaping the benefits of all those questions you spun out of no where and forgot all about.

You can easily belt out 25 questions a day without breaking a sweat, and generally do it in a matter of minutes. That's 25 pages that display your ads. Let's say that you're a slow typer and can only type one question a minute: in 25 minutes you've essentially created 25 pages of content. I'm willing to bet that you can't create 25 hubs or even 25 decent blog posts in 25 minutes. Look at this as a matter of efficiency.

My Breakdown:

I've only been using the site for a handful of days and already have made it part of my daily online routine. Here's some of the pros and cons I've discovered since I've been using the site:


  • Easy to create an account and add Adsense
  • Easy to add/answer questions
  • Fairly simple layout so it's easy to navigate
  • You could earn up to 70% in revenue
  • Can easily take advantage of being in on the 'ground floor'
  • Referral link to increase earning potential


  • New site, low traffic
  • Current Alexa ranking of 892,183 (which probably isn't terrible for a new site)
  • Poor Google ranking (I Googled answerspay and their site didn't even come up)
  • Currently only 34 known backlinks
  • Their servers tend to slow down often, making adding questions quickly nearly impossible
  • The simple layout could be a turn-off to some
  • No ability to add Google Analytics to track if you're actually accomplishing something with this site


Even with 'cons' outnumbering the 'pros', I still feel that AnswersPay is worth the effort. I've noticed a slight increase in my Adsense clicks since I've been using the site, though I can't say for sure that those clicks are actually coming from AnswersPay.

Like with any other site, there is no way of knowing what kind of success you will have with AnswersPay. But it is an option. If you think you'd like to try it out, feel free to sign up here!
