    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.

      If they have CPM that is amazing.

    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?

            I already have an Adsense account so I am OK - it looks like only new Adsense users are being impacted.
