Can you actually make money on this website? I know it is still in beta, and that is has earning potential. But is it only based on PPC or does it have CPM as well?
I make a decent amount of money on Webanswers. I believe they employ both PPC and CPM.
I was very active a year or two ago but am far less active now - I have about 4000 answers on there and about 1500 questions. Out of all the sites I write on WA is the second best in terms of revenue - I am barely active there now and I still earn $100 or more on there every month.
Like Hubpages, you'll do better on there with quality answers....
...I note that you have to have an Adsense account - Webanswers doesn't pay you - they share Google Ad impressions with you.
Thanks SimeyC. In regards to the question above, is it just PPC or is it a mixture with CPM? I have just started and I need 50 answers to enable my adsense account. I am at 35 as of this post so I will see where that goes. 100 a month sounds great, but that is a lot of answers!
I'm not sure - on some subjects I get a lot of clicks, however on others I do earn revenue - so I assume that is CPM and PPC!
What I did when I was active was try to answer 10 questions a day - I could produce 10 pretty decent answers (200+ words) on subjects that I know a lot about. One other thing to do is ask a lot of decent questions - you earn impressions on your questions too.
Also - if a question is awarded there;s no point in answering as you won't get any impressions - when the question has been awarded, the questioner, the awarded answer and Webanswers share the impressions - every other answer doesn't get anything!
BTW I have written a couple of articles about Webanswers - one fairly recently - you can see it in my profile...
Thanks for all of the great info. I am trying to generate 500-800 dollars of passive income in multiple streams when I go to Thailand. This sounds like a good egg to have.
I'm not so sure about the passive part. I answered a couple hundred questions and quit for a few weeks; income promptly fell to zero. I also see that many people there say the same thing.
Simey may be the exception to a general rule that you either keep answering questions or don't earn.
I have also had a problem signing up for adsense now. Says that they need to upgrade to the adsense API. Tons of people are affected by this. Are you?

Why do I show 0 page views at Google Adsense, but 200 and some impressions. This doesn't make sense to me. Google Adsense never shows the same page views or impressions that I show elsewhere. Can anyone help me...
