    Why do we have so many false advertisements about earning money on the internet or answering surveys

    Every since I lost my job I have entered every type of surveying opportunity, or anything online that I might win or earn some money for doing something. I have not yet seen one dime or penny for any surveys I answered.  I also have not seen a real winning of any game or PCH sweepstake.  I answer these surveys and after wasting my 15-50 minutes of answering, then I'm told I was not eligible for the survey or a pop up enters, or something happens with the web site.  What is real on these sites, I haven't seen money or anything else.

    They aren't false for the scammers who ARE making money off of gullible people. They are making a killing off desperate people in desperate financial trouble. Unfortunately when you realize you've been scammed it's usually too late to recover.

    Not supposed to. Survey companies are out there to get supposedly results for whoever ask for the results, but the very fact they offer compensation for the survey skewed the results. Real companies are now weary of the surveys, but people keep thinking they can get paid doing very little.

    Here's a proven way to make money: write hubs. You can probably write about 1 hub per hour (or more!) and make money off Google Adsense. When you have several hundred hubs all making pennies a day, they add up. I had written some blogs over past year or so and I was very surprised to see that my Adsense account is up to 60+ dollars, and I wasn't even TRYING to promote any of it! No Search Engine submissions, no cross-linking, no nothing. It's hard work, and I have found some people cheat by rewording other people's articles or even hubs, but it can be honest work. You probably won't get rich doing it, but you can probably make a few bucks here and there.

    I know I  those sites very well, and thats what happened to me when I first began taking survey, but I kept trying. They do that because they suspect that you are completing the survey to fast, or lying. To make money taking surveys you kind of have to want to before you can actually make any amount. Here, I found this site using google, http://surveyking.weebly.com , hopefully it changes your perspective on taking surveys.
