How Much Money Can You Make On Dooyoo? - Earn Money On Dooyoo

Updated on September 30, 2011

Dooyoo is a website offering members the chance to write consumer reviews for money. The question is though, how much money can you actually make on Dooyoo? Can you earn a living writing online on Dooyoo? Is it all just a big scam and will you never actually see any money? This article will answer these questions and more. This page will tell you everything you need to know about how much money you can earn writing on Dooyoo.

I have been writing on Dooyoo for well over two years now. I know how the site works, I know the potential for money making on there and I know the pit falls. So I want to share that knowledge with you so you can understand just what this site is about. So first of all, let’s see how much money you can actually make on Dooyoo.

How Much Money?

As I said I have been writing there for around two and a half years now. In that time I have earned just over £700. Now that is just me, that’s not to say that’s the most you can earn, neither is it saying it is easy to earn that much. I probably average a couple of reviews a week and I also rate people’s work on quite a regular basis. If you were to spend 6 hours a day on Dooyoo I am sure you could earn a great deal more. But for me personally, just from spending a few hours each week writing and a few hours rating other people’s work, my total has come in at £700.

What about other people then? There is no way to know exactly how much the top earners make, but it’s easy to get a ball park figure from some of the stats on the site. For instance, the member with the most reviews at the time of writing this article has written 3723 reviews. Now if we assume the majority of those reviews were earning 500 miles or 50p per review, that equates to £1861. That is on writing alone.

Interestingly, the same member also has the largest amount of rates on the site. This member gets out and rates other people’s reviews and they in turn rate back. This member has received 117,161 rates at the time of writing this article. Now if we assume that each rates equates to 1.5p or 15 miles, then that totals £1757. That is just on ratings alone.

Finally we can mention crowns. A crown is a reward for a very well written review. If you earn a crown for a review you receive 1500 miles or £1.50. The member on Dooyoo with most crowns has managed to get 503 crowns, a very impressive tally. So that means they have earned £754 from crowns alone.

So if we were to put all those figures together, how much would it be? Well for the top earning member in all three categories, that would be a total of £4372. So that gives you an idea of just how much you can make on Dooyoo if you are willing to put the effort it.

How Much Work Is Involved On Dooyoo?

Saying you can earn over four thousand pounds on Dooyoo is all well and good, but how long does it take to reach that kind of figure and how much work is realistically involved? Well the member who has earned those large figures has been on the site for three and a half years. So as you can see they are earning over £1000 a year on Dooyoo. That is pretty good money.

Realistically though how much time do you have to put in to achieve those sorts of figures, is it all just a scam? Well for me personally it takes around 20 minutes to write a review. Admittedly this is just an average review that is unlikely to earn a crown. If I put about an hours work in to a review I would expect to be in the running for a crown. Along with writing though you also need to rate. This can take a little bit longer but it is not vital if you want to earn money on the site. You can just simply write reviews and not bother rating, it is all down to personal preference.

There are things to remember when it comes to earning money on Dooyoo. You do need to write to a reasonable standard to make sure your reviews get published and stay published. Dooyoo can take miles off you if your reviews are not good enough. Also be aware of speed rating, in other words just rating reviews as quickly as possible without viewing a review for long enough to read it. Again if you do this Dooyoo will find out and take miles of you as punishment. Some people claim that because of this Dooyoo is a scam, but really there are rules in place that people break and therefore suffer the consequences.

Overall though Dooyoo can be a good way to earn a little extra money. You are never going to be able to get rich of this site and you will never earn £10 an hour or anything like that. But work hard and write well and there is money to be made on Dooyoo. These stories are not made up, the figures are there on the site if you want to check them out yourself. People can earn decent money on this site and you could be one of them.

      In my experience it can take between two weeks and six weeks. So if it was March you cashed in your Dooyoo Miles, they should turn up anytime now.

      Have you compared rates with ($1.60 - $4.00 per article; compared with 50p)

      The difference with HP is that if you write evergreen articles for HP, they can keep earning nonth after month and year after year.
