Make Money Answering Questions With WebAnswers.com
What is WebAnswers?
How Do You Make Money?
Yes, webanswers does work and it work much faster than hubpages. Webanswer does not pay you, Google Adsense does. When you answer a question and it is selected as the best answer, then you get to split 60-40 of all the ad revenues for that question. If a best answer is not awarded for that question, webanswers rotate turn for ad placement: the amount of clicks you get depends on the “Quality Score” that is given to you by the site. The site does not tell you the score and they have some sort of algorithm to do it.
How To Improve Quality Score?
Quality score depends on the quality of your answer. Shoot to write at least a 100 words answer to all the questions. Try to avoid single word answer as that can hurt your score. It is similar to how hubpages give you your score. A well though out answer that is original and is helpful will help you get a high quality score: you will probably get a best answer award for that question too.
SEO and Backlink?
Yes, you do have to work to make money. Similar to how you have to research what is being search on the internet to write for hubpages, you need to know what people are asking. Use Google Adwords to find out the popularity of a question. You can write a 100 well though out answers to questions nobody wants to find out and not make a penny.
Promoting the answer that you have been awarded can also be done. This drive traffic back to the answer and can potentially get you clicks. Similar to how we on hubpages use other websites to drive traffic back to our hubs.
Ask Questions and Refer People:
Asking questions can make you money too. Since this website is still in the beta stage, they are giving people a share of the ad revenue to write questions (Not as much as answering).
Also referring people to the websites will make you money. The people you refers do not lose their profit, you take away from webanswers' profit. Since it is a 60-40 splits, it becomes 60-30-10. With you have a 10 percents and webanswers getting a 30 percents.
Okay, so the technical detail of how the website works is out of the way, here is my earning so far. I have just started a day ago and have answer around 50 questions. You need to answer at least 50 questions to connect your Google Adsense account. I have notices a big jump from 0 dollar to 79 cent in just one day. For me that is huge because I have been on hubpages for over a month and have not seen a penny from my adsense earning.
I do believe that hubpages has more potential. Webanswers does allow you to make money passively but if you do not stay active, the money goes down. Where as hubpages, the older the articles, the more chance it get to earn money. I will continue to update this a month from now but you should check the website out for yourself.
