Have you tried the site web answers?

    I recently tried this site out and have already earned a few quid (£'s). I have been pretty whipped out with work the past few weeks and its been fun to just answer questions, as well as ask them. The value of clicks on the ads there is not huge, I have had between 1p and 30p clicks so not going to make huge sums of money or anything. I have had as many as 7 clicks in a day just from an hour of playing on the site in the evening while dinner is cooking. I still think HP is a great long term strategy for earning some passive income but it takes a lot of initial work and my hubs will grow every time the school is on holiday and I can write but lazy work is handy during term time smile.

    Does anyone here use the site and what do you think?

        Glad I posted in that case big_smile
        For the big rollers here its probably not worth the time but I figure there might be a few who don't mind a new addiction that can earn a few pennies wink

        They don't have a forum for just chatting so I came here smile

      Never heard of it before, but I checked it out after reading this thread earlier and I joined - figured I'd try it out and see what happens.  I could use a few more pennies!  Thanks!

    I forgot to mention that you need to get 2 answers awarded as best or answer 10 total before being invited to link your google ad sense to the site. With the awards you get the ads for that page if you get the award, otherwise you share the add impressions for a page you answer if it goes un-awarded. They do  not share the specifics of how they divy up the ads spaces with users but do say with a higher reputation you do get more ad space exposure since some questions never award answers. Asking questions also counts toward your rep or status so asking them can help too smile

    I hope that wasn't to promotional but the site is kinda weird roll

      The yahoo one is different actually, not revenue sharing. I use yahoo for finding ideas of what people want to know more about online but think I may use this site for that too as it shares revenue smile

          I got a pretty decent idea for a hub from yahoo answers site. It was actually my mother in law that suggested it hehehe. She posted a link for me in instant messenger saying it was a great question and answer and would it be worth writing an info article about?

          She has given me some pretty cool ideas actually lol

      I am pretty luck to have her! I love her loads n loads. I actually think her sons (hubby n brother in law) have no idea how lucky they are as she is ALWAYS there for them and their wives and yet they don't treat her with the respect she deserves in my eyes. I guess its cause she is their mom and that relationships can be a bit one sided in many cases smile

        That is sad that they don't show her respect. I say if she is there for them and shows them respect then they should be showing her respect too. *sigh* it's sad when family doesn't respect other family members of course I can't say much because there are quite a few members in my family who had showed me and my parents no respect so to me they are dead.

          Yeah, I have told hubby off when I think he has said something that is just not on. To have a go for something like leaving a wet sponge on a metal surface is to far, she does the dishes and forgets to put the sponge on the wood slats who bloody cares! Totally ungrateful to complain when we are being given help with the chores and not being judged in any way hmm.

          Just one example tongue

      I thought it might be useful to get ideas of what topics are asked about a lot, so I have hubs on topics people ask about, have fun and earn a few pennies. A win win in my eyes big_smile
