Recently, an advertising network known as WidgetBucks launched and began their quest to revolutionize the world of online marketing. In providing their pay-per-click shopping widget programs, WidgetBucks seeks to make advertising a much easier process for just about everyone involved. Traditional advertising is effective in some cases, but often times, it fails to meet the needs of companies. It just doesn’t reach customers in the right way. WidgetBucks is a different kind of online advertising, though.
Depending upon your role in the entire operation, WidgetBucks provides a different experience for various webmasters. The advertisements seem to reach customers in a different way. The latest marketing research has indicated that, on the whole, internet browsers are extremely fickle and they’re able to pick up on the tricks that marketing professionals bring. With WidgetBucks, the advertisements read more like content. Internet browsers see the WidgetBucks advertisements just like they do the articles on a webmaster’s site.
Webmasters have found that WidgetBucks can be very profitable when compared to other forms of affiliate marketing. Most website owners report a very high click through rate and from that, a solid CPM. What is the primary reason why this is happening? WidgetBucks serves the hot niches in the website industry. Among the popular niches are video games, sports, jewelry, health topics, and plenty of other things that are currently hot in the industry.
If you are a webmaster and you plan on making the big bucks using this advertising program, you better have a website in one of the popular niches. Otherwise, their advertising seems to fall short of the mark. Their advertisements are well written and are designed to make people really want to explore the product being advertised, but some webmasters find that their site is not one that benefits from such marketing.
The referral program is also very popular and is a good way to make some income using the program. At last check, WidgetBucks had an offer of $25 for any person who registers their high traffic site. From there, webmasters aren’t finished making money through WidgetBucks. You can earn 10% of the total lifetime earnings of all of the people you refer through your personal referral link. Depending upon who clicks on your site, this could end up being a very profitable aspect of the entire operation.
As far as payments go, there is a little bit of a waiting period. This can be frustrating at first, but after a while, the cycle begins to catch up to itself and you’ll be receiving regular payments. Just 45 days after the end of the month, WidgetBucks will send payment through either the Paypal system or through a personal check.
On the whole, WidgetBucks is a pretty good new system and they stand to revolutionize the market some. The advertisements are well written, which is the main difference between these ads and some of the other ones that you might see online.
Join WidgetBucks and earn more per click.

Title: Make Money Online
Posted by Paul at 8:33 PM
Many friends have asked me whether we can make money online from blogs or not. I told them you can make money even by selling lemonade at the corner of your school but the main problem is that you must have passion and time for what you will be blogging. Many people fail because they are starting blogs just to make money , they are writing 2 or 3 articles and they are using different affiliate links and other advertisement programs to catch any cents.
You must know that in order to make some money , at least you should know what you are talking about and not post just crap in order to increase number of posts in your blog.
Many newbies on the internet doesn't even know how to get a free blog online so in this article I will explain step by step what you have to do in order to make some cash from your blog
There are 2 big blog providers online which are
- WordPress has a lot of templates and widgets so you can use for your blog , you can create categories and you can even purchase more space and other cool features if you upgrade
- Blogger was purchased by Google so the best part is that you can get accepted to Adsense through Blogger. The bad part is that you cannot create categories but you can give Labels to your posts as they were categories (Im doing it)
You must know that creating a blog is really simple but updating it everyday with new and unique content is really a hard work (its not so hard if you speak about your favorite niche like I'm doing) So content will be the judger whether you will be a successful blogger or not, if you will update it once a week chances will be very low but if you will post good and unique content every day then you will be in the right road
So ok so far , you have created the blog , you chose your template and you are posting some articles. You will ask how will you get the traffic ?
There are tons of ways to drive traffic to a blog , I will explain some of the techniques I'm also using
- Register at FeedBurner.com
- Register at TechnoRati.com
- If you are a member of DigitalPoint Forum add your RSS Feed to your profile (it will be shown under your username everytime you post a new reply or thread)
- Write some unique articles and upload them at Article Directories (See this post for more explanations)
- Register at MyBlogLog.com
- Add your blog url to your signatures in every forum you are (if possible add also an avatar with your blog's address)
- Add your blog url to high pr directories
So with 7 easy and free ways you can start seeing some increases in your traffic (Note that if you dont post regularly your traffic may decrease again)
Now I know that all of you are thinking , how will we be making money from our blogs ? Its really simple but I would strongly recommend use just 2 or maximum 3 advertisments and do not put the advertisements from the beginning (wait until you have some traffic then you may add them) Make sure your advertisements and other widgets are like your template so you wont have a lot of contrast.
Here I'm listing the ways how you can make money from your blog once you have some decent traffic and some readers
- Adsense (CPM & PPC which pays differently for each niche)
- Text-Link-Ads (Get Money if someone buys a link to your site from TLA)
- ReviewMe (Get paid for different reviews you make , more traffic you have more you will earn)
- PayPerPost (same as ReviewMe but it has more advertisers in their network)
- Money4Banners (Doesn't matter if you have a small or big blog , you get 10$ when you sign up and 5$ every month just to display their advertisment
- WidgetBucks (this seems to be most promising program which pays very high rates but nobody has received any payment so far as its a new company)
So I'm listing just these 6 ways but if you would be interested on others feel free to contact me and I will share my experience with you.
Make sure you use proper keywords for each article and make sure your blog structure is like :
and not like :
http://yourblog.com/2007/2425.html (SEO Purposes)
Share your comments for this article if you found anything special !
This article was created for some friends who asked me how can we make money from blogs and I believe that an advanced webmaster knows almost everything explained here

Just got my first $20 from bidvertiser referral program. An advertiser signed up and reached his $50 threshold- that would be $20 for me. To be honest, bidvertiser is doing really well for this make money online blog and it looks like the referral money is also good.

Just received this email from agloco.
These are exciting times for the company. The Ask search portion of the Ask/AGLOCO agreement went live earlier this week. We anticipate this quickly becoming AGLOCO's largest revenue source.
As the Members who have downloaded and installed the AGLOCO Viewbar software know, the Viewbar has internet search capabilities built right in. The most recent release of the Viewbar is programmed with Ask as the default search provider.
Ask searches that you start from your Viewbar work just like any web search, except that AGLOCO earns a share of the revenue when ads are clicked by Members. If you search the internet during the day (who doesn't?), you should try originating all of your searches from the Viewbar. (Please note: do not use excessive ad clicking on the Viewbar or Ask search results. Click fraud is against AGLOCO Member rules and Members caught in this activity will be terminated.)
The early Member comments about Ask on the AGLOCO Company Blog have been very favorable. We invite you to check out Ask's capabilities, and to compare it to Google and Yahoo. We think you will be very pleased with the Ask functionality and search results, as we have been.
We are glad to report this important step for the company to you, one of the Members, who makes this all possible. We will continue to update the Membership as we progress towards the company's goals.
Thank you for your support,

Finally, some very interesting agloco update.. Agloco have not paid anyone yet. Hopefully they would this October and their partnership with Ask is really one big good news.
We are very excited to announce that Ask.com will soon become AGLOCO’s official worldwide default search provider.
For those of you not aware of Ask.com, here is some recent information. According to the August 14, 2007 report, of the University of Michigan’s American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), Ask rates right with Yahoo and Google in customer satisfaction - Ask 75, Yahoo 79 and Google 78. Also, ForeSee Results added that, “Ask has had the biggest increase of any e-business company measured by the ACSI, up 21% since it was first measured… Ask.com seems to be well-positioned to rival Google in the coming years because it has a strong search technology lauded by analysts and users alike.”
We will be adding Ask to the Viewbar search area in the next couple of days. The AGLOCO Development tem has been using the Ask.com search site the last month and we are very impressed with the results. We hope you will be too.
This is a very important step for AGLOCO. It is our first major revenue partnership and should greatly improve our earnings starting in October. We will update you further as the Ask.com search come online in the Viewbar.
As usual, more and quicker updates are available on the AGLOCO company blog.

Being successful online is part of all bloggers dream and to be successful in making money online, you need to fail to gain experiences and learn from your mistakes so that it will not repeat its history. Many people do not understand the word "Failure" and once they fail they never rebound again cause they fail, but being a failure comes with a wealth of experiences that no one can take away from you and only you could turn that into success, So what makes a blogger successful through numerous counts of failure and how you can make money out of your experiences?
I blogged with no result and i feel despaired!
Surely if you are a new blogger with little experiences in hand or even do not have a mentor to guide you through, sure enough it would be like a raft stranded in the rouge of seas. I would recommend you to continue with what you have started, be it about your personal life or a product that is not popular in the blogging society.
If you use your heart to give it all you can, seeing success will be what's next and remember not everyone tastes success within a short span of time.
Follow your heart to be a true blogger
Bloggers are humans and they do not possession super natural power to be successful but they sure have a heart which pushes them to the limit to say they want to be successful and how you could push yourself to that limit would be to tell yourself everyday that you will want to reach your goals.
Putting action to work
Once you have those goals in your mind, pushing yourself to find that dream would be a step closer and make sure you apply that goal you have set onto a project that you can name for yourself.
Making sure everything is in place
You need more than yourself alone to work on this project, make new friends online,Contact those bloggers who have established themselves a name on the internet and seek for guidances to better improve your project. I am very sure those successful bloggers will be very much delighted to help you in one or two tips.
Making sure you work to your goals
If you intend to be in this blogosphere for long, make sure you understand this is no 8 hours job that you normally do in your office from 9am to 5pm. Researching for new information and knowledge is the key to a successful blogger and it can last you on your computer table for a straight 16 hours if you are a newbie looking to optimize your own blog and over the months you will see more people starts to appreciate your work and that is your light to success.
Making Money seems to roll in after i am successful
Men are selfish bastards,they will always want the best out of everything and once you have made a name in the internet, it will spread like a viral disease where advertisers and sponsors flocking into your blog would seem automatic and now selling a space to them would seem difficult as you have a variety to choose and you will be spoiled for choices.
Are you all geared up to face your biggest word hurdle "Failure" and be it rain or shine you will crave that successful route made just for yourself?

Gaming for a Living
Pay to play at Tournament.com and turn your frags into funds.
By Tom Chick
You ready to put your money where your mouse is? UK-based Tournament.com plans to launch a service this month that will let gamers pony up an entrance fee, play a first person shooter match, and then divide the money among the winners. After the house gets its cut, of course.
At launch, you'll only be able to play Counter-Strike and Half-Life 2 deathmatches. Tournament.com founder Marcus Pearcey wouldn't comment about any publishers who might have declined to participate, much less any upcoming deals. "We look forward to signing new companies in the very new future," he said, stressing that this isn't gambling and therefore shouldn't be objectionable to any of the larger publishers. "Gambling rewards a player based purely on luck, while Tournament.com is a service that rewards players based on their skill. They're two very different models."
Nevertheless, 14 states in the US ban this sort of gaming for money, so people from those states won't be able to participate. Also, Tournament.com requires players to fax or email proof-of-age ID, which will then be verified to ensure that no one under 18 participates. Otherwise, it's easy to sign up and use your credit card or PayPal to set up an account. You install a fairly simple and sleek 10MB front end, and from there, you'll be able to jump into games with variable entry fees. With enough skill, you can take your place among top winners with names like Ars- and l33tboy.
A ranking system is supposed to match you against players of a similar skill level. An anti-cheating system will presumably keep things honest. But it's a bit disconcerting to log on and see the home page proclaiming the number of cheaters banned as if it were an accomplishment (currently at 338). "We're confident that [our anti-cheating software] is some of the best out there and we use a combination of different anti-cheating software developed by third parties in conjunction with our internally developed Tournament Anti-Cheat, also known as TAC," said Pearcey. "To supplement our security, we also have admins who continuously monitor in-game play, making sure that everyone is playing fair."
Based on the beta of the program, the entrance fees range from free-to-play (i.e. practice games with no rewards) to $10. "There's no real concrete amount that's consistent across all of the tournaments. Winnings are also dictated by a number of factors, including whether or not the tournament has a set reward amount or instead rewards based on the number of players participating." It's worth noting that in beta testing, many players complained about being unable to accumulate winnings in excess of $25, which was the requirement to withdraw money during the beta. So even if you've got seriously 733t gaming skillz, don't quit your day job just yet.
Pearcey is aware that other companies have tried this model and failed. But he remains optimistic. "Other services, in our opinion, failed to consider the big picture about a service such as this. While it's mainly about winning money and playing well, it's also about fostering an environment that's open to all players, regardless of whether they've been playing games for 20 years or just two days. Gaming is still about having fun and Tournament.com is completely dedicated to that idea."

I am sure for you PROs this is nothing new. But after many attempts and sites of all kind, simple affiliate sites, complex sites, blogs etc... I will soon try something else.
In the back of my head I "know" for sure that sometimes REALLY, REALLY stupid things...or VERY SIMPLE stupid things can bring a lot of traffic.
You all remember that stupid "hamster-dance" from a few years ago.... I saw people raving and screaming about it..while I was in awe over how pathetic and retarded it was (IMHO).
Or.... think about how many sites often just contain a joke, or something unique, dumb and funny like a single video....or things like the good old "church sign generator"
Or what about (ok, this is old now)...just some extremely disgusting pictures. (Assuming here I am not talking about gore/nudity etc...this would also be against AdSense TOS)
What about some extremely fat woman ?
Or make up some fake story which everyone just HAS to see, including pictures etc.. or maybe even a real story...something outrageous, incredible, hard to believe.
Or some video with Britney or Paris or...let your fantasy flow
----> THAT is the "high quality" stuff I always see having the most diggs and traffic and what is most talked about anywhere....NOT the hyper-complex websites where you sit 5 months alone to DESIGN them...to get 10 uniques a day !
I think it's time I sit down and do a bunch of really, really "stupid" sites in that sense....put some AdSense on it and see traffic coming in because the kids think it's cool to see someone popping a giant football-sized pimple, or an animated cat dancing...or 100 hamsters in an animation singing..or some pictures of my new cat which i will certainly claim weighs about 300lbs because I got her from Chernobyl. She genetically mutated because of the remaining radiation in Chernobyl and doctors discovered that some genes are missing which are responsible for her growth to stop. She is STILL growing.
At this point she is 9' long, 289lbs....i will show her to you soon on my new website. I will aso have a video on that site showing how she swallows one of the two cows which we daily feed to her.
Wait... I need to do some photshopping....
Get my drift ?
Edit: "The extremely fat woman" is ok. But to top this of: What you don't know is that this is actually Paris Hilton before she had her surgery ! No one knows that of course. But i will have the proof....soon...."

Alright, I’ve read a ton of threads about some people begging to spoon feed them information about how to make money online, so here is my step by step guide to making some capital that you can use for your big projects. This is easy, and I know it works because I’ve used it before. I’m going to do it step by step, so there is no reason for you guys not to earn. Let the games begin.
Look around the room you are in, and try and decide on a niche. I have a ton of car stuff in my room, so I’m going to choose the auto industry as my niche.
Log on to your favorite registrar (I prefer Namecheap because the administration panel is extremely user friendly, and I don’t have to use my credit card.) Start searching for a domain, doesn’t matter what it is really. However if you think you found a really good one, go ahead and register the dot com.
Next, get some cheap hosting. I use ResellerZoom because they are only $5 for a basic reseller package and you can host a ton of MFA sites on them. Go ahead and set up the DNS zones and what not. Wait a couple minutes (in the case of Namecheap) and everything should be set up.
Time to install some sort of CMS. I prefer Wordpress because it kicks ass at what it does. I don’t really have experience with other systems because Wordpress just gets the job done. If you need help with installing Wordpress, Aequitas from Wickedfire.com just made an awesome post that outlines everything you need to do - Complete Guide To Wordpress & Blogging. Find a decent looking theme too; it can be free, but try and customize the header with an image of something in your niche. Try and make it stand out a bit.
Next, you’ll need some plugins to help with the SERPs etc. These are the basic plugins that I recommend you get:
AdSense-Deluxe WordPress Plugin » Acme Technologies Zeitgeist
Stop Comment Spam and Trackback Spam « Akismet
Google Sitemap Generator for WordPress v2 Final
Sociable - Push cx
Il Filosofo » WordPress Database Backup
Those are the absolute minimum. There are probably a lot more that can help you out with the ranks and what not, but those are good for now.
Everything set up? Great, time to start doing the real work. Note that this is not fun stuff, but it’s really easy and should help you get started online with some capital. You’ll also learn a bunch by doing stuff like this.
I recommend you try and get 30-40 posts per 30 days for this ‘technique’. They don’t have to be very big articles, maybe around 200 or so words each. You can outsource this work to people such as GeekCognito; he writes for $.0225 per word. However at the end of this article I’ll explain why outsourcing is good and bad. These articles must be unique. This is one of your sell pitches. The fact that you have a ton of unique content will be one of the main reasons you sell the site. Do not use a RSS auto poster; just provide good, unique content. Need some ideas for content? Look at other blogs around you and see what they write about. Dig deep into the serps looking for information in forums that hasn’t been posted about by the big boys. Log in to Yahoo answers and look at questions people are asking. Maybe ask some friends about stuff they’d like to read about. You can even regurgitate a lot of the information you read online, just rephrase it in your own words. Just make sure it is unique, original, or written in your own words. Once you accumulate all of this content, do not post it all at once. Just post around 2 articles per day. You can set up the timestamp feature in Wordpress that will automatically post the content for you. However if you haven’t written the content yet, you can write it on a day to day bases. It takes me around 10-15 minutes to write 1 or 2 decent 200 word articles. Just keep practicing, and you’ll soon become better at it.
Time to work on link building. Directory submissions are a good place to start, and I highly recommend you out source this work. The cheapest I’ve seen this stuff go for is around 100 link submissions for $7. I wouldn’t purchase text links from individual sites unless you really know what you’re doing, or if you think you’ll be sticking with this site longer than a month or two. Try and write a ‘special’ Digg article that you think will attract the attention of Digg users; if you reach front page other people will blog about your content and you’ll receive a ton of traffic and more backlinks.
That’s about it. I’ve made several blogs using the exact steps shown above and sold them for around $150-$200. How was I able to do this? Easy, I did all of the work. I established a blog on the internet; I got it indexed, got a decent PR, had traffic coming to it, and had unique content. All the new owner has to do is keep adding unique content and monetize the site, which brings me to another list of tips.
If you think you can monetize a site well, give it a shot. Throw in some Adsense and targeted affiliate offers. Try a little bit of CPM stuff if you’re getting decent traffic. Just try whatever you can to try and make a buck. If your site starts to convert well, hold on to it! You may have found a winner, and you may wish to develop it. However if you can’t get it to convert, just sell it. I personally suck at monetization, so I usually sell my blogs to someone that knows how to make them convert.
Now let’s talk about outsourcing. You can outsource every single step of this process, less purchasing the domains. So sure, you really don’t have to do much, however if you choose to outsource everything you may make little to no profit at all. Sites like this can sell for $100 to $200. So let’s do a breakdown of what it would cost to outsource all of this:
1. $10/year - domain
2. $5/month – hosting
3. $180 - 40, 200 word articles
4. $20 – 300 directory submission
So that totals to around $215. Good luck trying to make a profit. You’ll need some awesome stats or revenue to get your money back. I personally think that you should do a little bit of link building yourself, and write the bulk of the content. You should aim to not spend over $80 to $100 on this site, because there is no guarantee of it selling - I don’t care how good you think it its. It’s only worth what someone is willing to pay. So let’s say you decide to invest $90 into this site, and do a lot of the work yourself.
1. $10/year – domain
2. $5/month – hosting
3. $55 – ~12, 200 word articles
4. $20 – 300 directory submission
So now you only have to write 70% of your content instead of all of it. And you’ll still make a good deal of money back on your investment. Okay maybe not, unless you sell for $200, but at least you get the point of what I’m trying to say.
And one more tip that I just thought of, I just bought a domain yesterday that is already indexed in Google, already has backlinks (pagerank of 2) so it basically gives me a head start. The best part of it all? I spent $5 on it. So I’m saving money and also getting a head start. Look for those great deals out there.
Alright well now that I read over this, this plan is really great. But it’s what I do and I make some okay money with it. Since I’ve already written this huge post, I thought I might as well publish it so your guys can laugh at me. Who knows, it could be used as food for thought to come up with some bigger and better schemes. Of course there are better ways to make money, however as obvious of a plan that this is, its one of the millions of ways to make money online. I didn’t intend this article to be of any substance to the big players out there, but for the new guys here at Wicked Fire to maybe help them start thinking of ways to make money.
Let me know what you think, and flame away.

Helpful tips for those who make money online writing articles.
1. After writing an article, read it out loud to yourself to make sure it sounds right. If it does, you're on the right path. Lots of times you'll use words that sound alike or look alike, though, and saying it and reading it out loud helps spot those mistakes.
2. When editing work, edit first for flow (beginning to end to make sure the piece as a whole works right and makes sense).
3. After editing for flow, edit for grammar. My best advice for this is to edit in reverse, starting with the last sentence first. It makes you pay more attention that way, and without being wrapped up in your article, you're more likely to notice little mistakes.
4. Do NOT always trust spellchecker. It's a good thing to use to make sure words are spelled right, but it doesn't check for the right WORDS. The grammar suggestions it usually makes are pretty off sometimes, too.
5. Know your audience, and edit accordingly. If you're writing a scholarly piece, you want to edit every minute detail, quote correctly, and cite VERY correctly. However, if your article is aimed towards teenagers or website owners, chances are they don't want to read something that scholarly sounding all the time, so edit it to be fun.
6. Realize that no matter what you write, it can always improve. This is VERY important for writers to realize. I can't tell you how many people I've had working for me (or students I've taught) have edited something, and then pulled the, "Well, it's done so I'll leave it alone!" routine. A lot of the time you will just leave it as-is once it's posted. If you're writing a very important piece, something you charged a lot for, or something you really want to bring home the visits/cash, save it for a day, then read it again to make sure you didn't miss anything. Shakespeare spent years refining some of his plays after he wrote them, so spending an extra day refining your article about Adsense won't hurt your credibility.

1) Blog on a Niche. You don't have to be an expert on that Niche. You just need to be passionate about YOUR Blog.
2) Find a topic which have about 4-5 thousand searches using some tool like Overture.
3) Choose a topic which has less competition so that it becomes easier to rank. Check the keyword difficulty using this tool Seochat Keyword Difficulty Checker
4) Learn as much as possible about the topic and update your blog everyday about what you learned, in your own words so that the contents are unique.
5) Every blog post should target a particular search phrase or phrases. Bold the phrases within your content.
When you decide what topic you want to blog about, run the keyword or phrase through the google adwords keyword tool. This tool returns the search volume for the specific keyword and other related keywords. These related keywords can provide a good list of topics to discuss within the post.
6) Start commenting on other blogs, and try to form a bond with those bloggers so that they link to you in their blogroll. You will start getting PageRank. Once you have decent pagerank from the blog links, you can start exchanging links with other relevant websites or blogs to start ranking in SERP. The blog rolls might not help you rank in SERP but they will sure help in getting a PR, which can be used to exchange links with relevant sites and also to sell links for some extra revenue.
7) Start exchanging links with relevant sites. It will easy now since you have a decent PR. Keep exchanging Links. Keep updating these process of commenting on other blogs intelligently, and get new blogroll links.
8) Also, keep submitting to Directories to build the PR and some SERP. Submit to directories which accepts deep links also. Wherever you get deep links, try to get links to your blog posts. Submit site and posts to social bookmarking sites, especially Stumble, Digg, and Netscape.
9) Be active in forums that are related to your niche. Add your site to your signature and make relevant posts in the forum. This generates a fair amount of traffic for your site and builds relationships with others online in your niche.
10) Once you start earning some Adsense + chitika + kontera + link-ads + maybe tribalfusion + feedburner ads revenues, submit your blog to strong Paid directories like Aviva, Alive, etc etc... with the revenue. Pump back the revenue to your blog. Submit your posts whose targeted key phrases have the most Traffic in the deeplinks in the paid directories...
As long as you continue this, the money will keep pouring in.

Remember marketing is the key. All products exist, it's how you market them that gives you the visitors. For example, file upload has been around for a long time. If you say "buy file upload space" people will laugh. Tell me "you can access your pc from anywhere" and they will buy your product. Market, Market!

More and more internet marketers are flooding to join forums everyday. Obviously they have the vision and see something beneficial to them. There are certainly many ways to make money in a forum. Here are 5 proven methods:
1. Quality post to build up your reputation
By Building your reputation, you are indirectly building friendship and trust. No one trust their money or time to some whom they do not know well. Share your ideas sincerely. Never promise anything you cannot deliver. Building up trust will build up friendship and you are on your way to a huge and strong network. You will soon have a team of fellow marketers and a big group of followers. Great business deal and joint venture come from them
2. Use your forum signature
The signature system is free for you to use. Most forum limit you to a 150 - 250 letters in your signature space, so please be sure that you fully maximize your signature space. Use short url services so that you will have more space to display more advertisement. Signatures are a great way of advertising. Most people will click on a reputable person’s signature and most probably join the program he/she puts in the signature. The more post you have, the more chances your signature ad is going to be expose to the money makers.
3. Upgrade your forum account and get more exposure
Many forums has paid membership for you to upgrade at a reasonable price. You can get a lot more exposure because your user name is displayed in a different color and also you can have some free banner impressions. Your name will always be displayed on the front side hence creating curiosity and more exposure to who you are. People wants to know you and wants to join the program you are joining and making money together with you.
4. Use forums to get higher PageRank and get index fast on Major Search engines
We all know that PageRank can increase the value of a site. Most buyers look for sites with higher PR compared to lower PR. If you site or blog got index or a high ranking PR of a forum, it will help and push your PR ranking. I have seen some site which have PR 1 and got PR 2 after just 1 week of been indexed by SE on a money forum. If you find your site not indexed on Major Search engines, one of the best way is to post your site on a forum with high PR and traffic. You will soon see your site being indexed on major search engines and indirectly you will have more traffic. Traffic is equal to money on the internet. Getting quality traffic are very important if you are looking to make money online.
5. Leverage on other money making gurus and learn from them
There are many members in the forum who are willing to share their tips and knowledge with you. Example if a member can teach you how to save money wisely and you managed to save an extra of $100 monthly. This makes $1200 in a year meaning indirectly you earned an extra of $1,200 in one year and that knowledge which is your assets follows you forever. Always increase your knowledge learning new things from the wise one. Many wants to share their quality methods of money making but are you the one who is willing to receive it? Knowledge is equal to power and money. Always invest your time in the forum learning new tricks. Treat the money forum like your money making university, you will find many professor out there willing to be your mentor.
There are many more ways to make money in forums. Any small idea can make you lots of money if you are willing to try new things. Every sub forum of a forum has its own reason for being there. Explore every part of the forum and you will be amazed of what you can find. Money making has never been made easier. The internet and technology has helped bring the world closer. The world is out there for you. Now it is time for you to receive it.

I was moderating the comments and this comment by adam is kinda interesting and I agree.
why doesn't anyone tell you that agloco doesn't actually pay out to anyone yet? a lot of people out there have been claiming that they have been recieving check when agloco themselve admit that no one is being paid yet. check their "official" blog. just curious... i don't know, i just believe in honesty i guess. btw, yes, i'm already signed up for agloco. i just don't like hyping it up if it's not making any money "yet"... how mad would people be if after making a buch of money for themselves they shut down and disappeared, haha...anyway, thats all i got...Yeah, Agloco doesn't pay yet. I guess its another long wait. Just like when we were all waiting for the agloco viewbar. Now its time to wait for the payments.

A very informative guide be Steve Celeste on how to start with 0$ and get to 1000$'s of dollars using DP, can be found here:
Another nice guide made by thetafferboy83 about creating a good video blog can be found here:
You just registered, you have 0$ in your pocket - and you want to make a few bucks to get you started. The where's and how's:
*Create a PayPal account so you could receive aswell as send money payments from and to other people through the internet.
[Other payment methods popular in DP include e-Gold and MoneyBookers]
Now you have a few choices on how to make your first few bucks over the forums.
Earning From Adsense on DP - As DP is an ad revenue sharing forum, you can easily set up your adsesne account ID and channel ID in your USER CP>EDIT PROFILE.
(To use this feature in DP, you must register a Google Adsense account)
Here's a FAQ regarding the revenue share:
Selling Yourself on DP - Well, it isn't quite selling yourself, rather selling your avatar space, signature space, location space and 'recent blog' space. If you intend to be an active forum member and post alot, some people might want to purchase your avatar space for a few bucks per month (which means you're gonna have to turn your avatar picture into a small ad), same goes to signature links (maximum of 4 links), aswell with the location (you can put www.something.com in your Location) and finally your 'recent blog' (you can put 'www.blabla.com - Best Offers!' as your post title and it will show the title on DP).
This alone can net you a small revenue each month.
Posting Services - Go to This section [http://forums.digitalpoint.com/forumdisplay.php?f=102] in the forum and apply to all of the people that pay per post in their forums (cost usually is 0.1$ to 0.3$ per post). This could net you couple a few XX$ bucks in a day or two if you start posting right ahead.
Article Writing - Offer your services as an article writer, with a low price of lets say 5$ per 400-500 word article (It's a start to give you positive iTraders and letting the community to acknowledge you as a potential writer). A few articles here and there, and you can make yet again XX$ in a week.
Coding and Programming - If you have what it takes to code in different languages, try to look for a quick job in This area [http://forums.digitalpoint.com/forumdisplay.php?f=103] of the forum, which by completion could net you XX$ if not XXX$.
Web Design & Photoshop - Have experience in the design area ? Go Here[http://forums.digitalpoint.com/forumdisplay.php?f=104] to find a few jobs and earn a few bucks.
Building & Selling Websites - If you know how to build websites, you can easily earn by selling your services to other people.
Social Bookmarking Services - Offer social bookmarking services for a couple of bucks per link, and you could earn a few easily that way (You will have to put links in 25 or more social bookmarking websites, so it could take some time).
All of the above (not the complete list) is enough to get your butt started in DP with atleast XX$ bucks in your hand, and remember - you started with zero.
What can i do with the money i earned on DP ?
You can do some of the following:
-Register good domain names, and sell them for a higher price on DP
-Buy cheap eBooks and other products such as programs and scripts with RESELL rights, and sell them for a higher price on DP (make special offers for DP members).
-Buy a few cheap domains (.info) and get some basic cheap webhosting. Later, create a few MFA's (Made for Adsense websites) and put them on the web (Don't forget to get them indexed).
-Create a directory website, and start working on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) so you could get a high PR (Page Rank) for this website. After you succeeded, sell premium links here on DP for a few bucks each.
Take note, that all of this is time consuming, that is because you have no starting capital - you have to get through the hard way to get your cash.
IF you have some money to spend, you can skip some of the ways mentioned here and get right into buying-selling.

Do you wish there was an easier way to make money online? Of course we all do. But while there are dozens of ways to make money online, still 95% of those starting up internet businesses fail.
One of the easiest ways to make money online is selling digital products. Digital products could be an ebook, an MP3, video or software. Selling these products is fast, easy and commands big profit margins. No inventories to watch, delivery trucks are non-existent and most of all it works 24 hrs a day 7 days a week. Really an entrepreneur’s dream come true.
What are the exact steps involved to make money online with selling digital products? The following steps have been proven to be effective:
1. Choose the right product.
The first thing that you need to do is get a product that you can sell. Be certain that you choose the right product to sell. In choosing a product, you can either create your own or sell other people’s product. However, you must ensure that the product you will sell is in demand and that it is something that many people want or need.
You may check clickbank.com to see and get a feel of what products are in high demand. If you’ve been in the internet for three to four months and have been subscribing for those newsletters from sites you visited, then you may now have an idea of what topics attract large crowds. Subjects on golf, search engine traffic, weight loss, marketing, adsense, dog training, personal improvement and make money online have proven well overtime. There are some niche subjects which also have been drawing huge following.
Remember, the number of people looking for that particular topic, product or subject is extremely important. You can’t make money online if only a handful is interested with that product you are trying to sell. The number of competitors also plays an important role. As much as possible, choose an area with lesser competition. If you’re just starting out, it is hard to compete with guys who are the McDonalds of the industry. If you’re a bit sophisticated, there are tools available to figure this out. You can try the keyword tools and look for topics that have been searched by volumes and volumes. These tools also provide you with the number of competing websites. There is wordtracker.com, inventory.overture.com that you can start with.
If you don’t want to create your own product, you can easily find hundreds of products with master resale rights. What are master resale rights (MRR)? If you own a product with MRR, you have the right to sell it to others and keep all the profit for yourself! With master resale rights, the person who buys from you can also get the resale rights to the product.
There are also products with private label rights. Private label rights give you freedom to alter the product or change the content and put your name on it as the author or originator. You may try warriorforum.com and look at the warrior’s special offer (WSO) for great deals on resale rights.
2. Build your website.
Now don’t scratch you head yet. You will not be building a full blown website but a very simple three page site. The pages are: Sales letter Page, Thank You Page and the Download Page. Trial and completely free web building softwares are available for download. There’s the 123WYSIWYG and NVU which are both easy to use. If you’re not that tech driven then you can hire some college kids in your neighborhood who might be good at building websites. Or you can try elance.com and rentacoder.com to find somebody to do this. Just focus on your goal to make money online.
To accept payment, just use Paypal. It’s easy to get. Using the standard Paypal button is okay. Paypal will ask you for the redirect page, in this case, use your Thank You Page. Don't put the download link there. Put an opt-in in box instead. Say that you will send the download link in the email. The opt-in box is extremely important if you want to build a business. You will have the chance to capture customer information here. You can make money online over and over again once you have a large list of customers.
In the email that goes out after a person subscribes to your opt-in, you will tell them where to download the product. Your download page should contain a link to your product with a few directions on how to download and how to use it. If you are selling an ebook in PDF format, tell them that Adobe Reader is required and point them where they can download it.
3. Generate traffic.
Once you have chosen your product and created your website, you must attract visitors. You cannot make money online if your site doesn’t have visitors. You can get traffic to your website in many different ways. However, you want to be certain that you bring in the right kind of traffic. What is the right kind of traffic? Targeted! You want visitors to come to your site because they want to, not because they are forced to. You want visitors that are interested in your product.
One of the ways to attract traffic is search engine marketing (SEM). SEM is a set of marketing methods to increase the visibility of a website in search engine results pages. Yahoo and Google are the top two sites where most of the web searches come from. Experts estimate that Google account for 45% of the searches while Yahoo gets 30%. In order to make money online, your website must be listed in the top 30 results of the search engines. Do you think anyone would bother to look on page 97 of the results? or page 110?
Your site’s ranking on the search engines will depend on how optimized it is with the keywords you choose and the number of competition it has. The lesser the competition for the specific keyword, the higher the chance of your site to get to the top of the search engines and the chance to make money online is significantly increased.
Another way to get visitors to your site, and this is the quickest one, is by pay per click advertising (PPC). You can try the Google adwords program, Miva and Goclick. Be very careful, however, as PPC advertising may burn your pockets and your plan to make money online would be affected. Make sure to set your daily budget when doing PPC.
These three simple steps to make money online when followed would get you the results you want. There are dozens of ways to make money online. What separates the successful online entrepreneur from a failure is focus and consistency of efforts. Most of the people starting to make money online get sidetracked with every new program that comes to them. If you want to make money online, choose one specific way, and then follow that way until you succeed. Don’t jump from program to program.

Jason Calacanis’ search engine, Mahalo, is built by humans. This means that some guy or girl was directly responsible for creating the results for a certain search query; if no one did that, Mahalo will simply display search results by Google. The question until now was, how the hell are they going to get enough people to do all these results? After all, there is a lot of search queries out there.
The Mahalo Greenhouse is where talented part-time Guides (PTGs) help Mahalo create the best search results on the internet. PTGs create search results in the Mahalo Greenhouse for terms Mahalo has yet to cover, and if their full-time Guides approve the PTGs' search results, those results will be moved from the Mahalo Greenhouse to Mahalo. Anyone can apply to be a PTG. PTGs are paid $10 to $15 for each search result approved and added to Mahalo. Please note that at they can only pay U.S. citizens. If you are not a U.S. citizen, they will make a donation to the Wikimedia Foundation in your name.

It's been two days since the agloco viewbar has been released but a new problem surface. The agloco website is having a major downtime. Sometimes the site cannot be access especially in Asia. It maybe due to the fact that many people are downloading the agloco viewbar. According to agloco official blog, the agloco ads will appear shortly. Well, the agloco viewbar is available for download and you can install it. It seems though that without the ads, members wouldn't be making any money. Advertisers pays for their ads to be shown in the agloco viewbar to showcase their products or services and they pay agloco everytime its members view the ads. Then the money earned is divided and shared to its members. Without the ads, members would have no earnings. Hopefully, agloco would fix this soon.

Paid online surveys have been around for years, but some people are still very skeptical about these so called money making surveys. You can find these surveys all over the internet and are listed on many different sites. These surveys are really easy to complete, but don’t expect to start making millions off of these offers, most only pay $5-$10 per survey. They are pretty easy to complete, but can be really time consuming.
The way these surveys work is that big companies need honest reviews from customers. So they release surveys in which they pay the websites a commission for every survey they have completed by a consumer. Part of the commission is then passed on to you. So it’s a legitimate money making venture.
Some sites are scams. There are two things to think about when signing up for an online survey site. The first is just to think. If the site is offering you to win a prize just for signing up, take a look around and see what you can find on the site. Also, sites that are making you fill out a lot of information after signing up, are almost certainly spam. A good way to avoid being spammed is searching for an online survey forum and talking with experienced people there. They will help you get your feet off the ground.
We have compiled a few tips to help you to get the most out of taking online surveys. First, sign up with as many online survey sites you can find. This will ensure that you receive the most survey invitations possible. Signing up with only one survey site won’t get you many invitations, but if you sign up for ten or even twenty, you could be getting fifteen or more surveys per day. Another tip is to fill out your profile after registering for the site. This may or may not be used in screening members for surveys. Also it’s always better to use the correct information. Another thing is to be honest when answering the surveys, the information collected is taken very seriously. And one final tip, check your email often. Survey invitations sometimes are limited to a certain number of people or only last for a certain period of time. So be sure to check your email once, twice, or even three times daily. One more thing to remember is to set up a separate email account just for survey invitations, and turn all of your spam filters off. This is because some survey companies may trigger your filters, and then you may never know they invited you to a survey.
One of the keys to making money with online surveys is to establish multiple streams of income. Each of these different web sites that offer online surveys might only provide a few dollars each month, but with enough different sites that you sign up with, you will find that you are able to earn a pretty good amount of money with these surveys. Paid Surveys can provide a terrific second income source that will continue to grow as you become more experienced with filling out online surveys.
I've received an email today that the agloco viewbar is ready to download.

Sorry to be so long between posts. There was no meaningful news to give you until today.
We have made a workaround regarding the ad server problem and we will finally be launching the Viewbar. Some, but not all, of our ad networks will be connected. These networks have enough ads on them, so we are comfortable releasing the software as we continue to work on the outstanding issues that remain with the other networks. All of the preliminary Viewbar functions are there, but with the ad problems we will not be initially launching with the personalized ad targeting. We will continue to develop this capability after we have launched and when it is available the new version of the software will be incorporated into your viewbar automatically.
Remember that this is the first version of the Viewbar (v1.0), and with the Viewbar being automatically self-updating software, gradual improvement (both aesthetically and functionally) will appear seamlessly (you also have an option to turn off this feature and ask for updates manually, though we recommend leaving the auto-updating feature active so that you always have the latest software as improvements are made).
This weekend the Viewbar download is being moved from the test servers to the main servers. We will NOT need to temporarily take down the web site as we had thought, so we will not be sending out an email warning on that. If the transfer goes smoothly, the first download emails will be going out Monday morning California time (early Tuesday in Asia).
If you have a Norton firewall you may be asked to allow access to “viewbar.exe” and “update.exe” (please check “Permit Access Always” for proper installation of the Viewbar).
The Viewbar is currently available for Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista and will work with IE (Internet Explorer) or Firefox browsers.
I’m sure you are all just as ready for the Viewbar release as we are!

The Blogger team is inviting users to test all the latest features they’re working on. They are interested in finding beta testers to implement usability study at one of the Google office located all over the world, field study and even paid online surveys. Google will pay you $75 per hour you work with them. As long as you are 18 years old and live on Earth, you can participate and earn money with Google. I’d suggest trying the paid surveys, the best option if you don’t live in the US.
Although, they can't guarantee that everyone who signs up will be invited to participate in a study, and it may be some time before you hear from them. They will contact you to set up a date and time.

1. AGLOCO Hours: You will accrue hours in your AGLOCO Member account (current maximum is five direct hours a month). Hours are earned during active surfing on the Internet. The Viewbar has a green light on it that notifies the Member when it is accruing time. Your referrals’ surfing will accumulate hours for you at a 25% rate, meaning if one of your referrals surfs for the maximum five hours you will get 1.25 (0.25 x 5) hours credited to your total referral hours. You can only get credit referral hours up to the amount you directly surf (meaning if you surf 3 hours but a referral surfs 4, you will only get credit for the first 3 of your referral’s 4 hours). AGLOCO accrues these hours each month and also has a cumulative total of all hours earned. These hours are what AGLOCO will use to calculate cash and other distributions. The Viewbar contains a one click inactive button which turns it off and removes it from your screen at any time.
2. Initial Release for Windows: The initial Viewbar release will be for Windows Vista, XP, 2000 Pro and 2000 Server. Later, we will release Mac and Linux versions of the Viewbar. Until that occurs, Mac/Linux users can still log onto any supported Windows computer and accumulate their five hours. The Viewbar works with browsers IE 5.5 or higher and Firefox 1.5 or higher.
3. Cash Distributions: To be a sustainable entity in the long term, AGLOCO makes Member cash distributions from its positive cash flow (revenue minus costs). Therefore, please do not expect a check after the first couple of months as it will take time to collect revenue from advertisers and this revenue must exceed costs in order to make cash distributions to Members. We will be keeping Members informed of our financials and you can visit the Official company blog at http://blog.agloco.com for the latest updates.
4. Multiple Users on One Viewbar: As stated previously, multiple Members may use the same Viewbar on the same computer. Only one Viewbar download will be necessary as the Viewbar software will enable each Member to log in and log out using their AGLOCO Member ID# and password (obviously, only one Member ID# can be accumulating Viewbar hours at any one time). Please note, only one Viewbar is allowed on a screen at a time.
5. One-Time Download: The v1.0 Viewbar is purposely simplistic and minimalist, but it also comes equipped with an automatic self-updating feature. Once you download the Viewbar for the first time, your Viewbar will be seamlessly updated with new additions and features as they become available. These future features include the direct cash back feature when a Member purchases items on sponsor site and a portion of the purchase price is added back to the Member’s AGLOCO account (as described on the Official AGLOCO Blog at http://blog.agloco.com/index.php/post35/ . )
We look forward to your active participation in the AGLOCO community.
The agloco viewbar has been delayed again and the agloco offical blog has not stated the new release date. Maybe they'll release it much sooner and surprise us all. I'm still positive about agloco although there has been a lot of negative feedbacks with the delay of the agloco viewbar. I'm hoping they'll release the agloco viewbar sooner or they'll have a negative image. Most people are hesitant to sign up with agloco since you cant start making money right away and delaying the viewbar would further hurt their image.
The agloco viewbar will be released soon. It will be release by batch depending on how early you have joined. Agloco official blog answered some issues and concerns raised by its members. Here is what they have to say.
Referral Issues – There have been two issues brought up here recently, and both are actually old issues. One was about the verification email referral link not being complete and the other was about the verification email link resulting in an error message. First let me say that in both cases the referral is correctly in the system and when the new Member does verify their email address that person will be recorded correctly to the person who made the referral. As to the ‘broken’ link, David North is correct that some email providers have different ways of reading emails. In order to reduce the spam filters and blocking of verification emails a couple of months ago we put all verification emails in plain text form. This works well on gmail and hotmail, but not all mail services – I will see if we can add some more language in the verification email to help people who get this problem. The second ‘issue’, an error message, is the result of trying to sign someone up on a computer that is currently logged into another AGLOCO Member account. This happens very rarely and is usually solved by simply logging out and then clicking on the verification email link.
Regarding Member cash payouts – I made the comment about this in my post as I saw several Members promoting instant cash and get rich quick language. While we look forward to making cash payments, AGLOCO has consistently stated that cash payments would be from AGLOCO’s positive cash. One of the biggest mistakes that AllAdvantage made was to promise a fixed hourly payout for browsing. They failed because they were paying out more money than they were bringing in and so they ran out of money very quickly. AGLOCO needs to be a sustainable business to make it worth anything for its Members. Building a sustainable company involves three primary things. First, building and maintaining significant revenue sources; second, keeping operating costs low (including salaries – AGLOCO Management has not yet been paid any salary); and third, paying Members the net cash flow. The hours you earn from the moment you first start using the Viewbar will count towards your cash payments. As I mention in the post:
“Members will begin to accumulate hours from when they first start using the Viewbar (and referral hours will also be earned). Those hours will not be wasted. Both overall hours and monthly hours will be used in determining distributions to Members.”
Information and transparency – To answer some specific questions: Yes, we will be disclosing AGLOCO’s financials, and we will do this as soon as we have income for a couple of months so we can show meaningful numbers. No, we will not be disclosing details of deals with advertisers, etc. (it could stop some companies from doing business with AGLOCO if we gave away too many details). We will not be posting lists of every advertiser – nor does Yahoo, Google or CBS for that matter. As those of you who are in business know, there will be times when, even though we have an answer to a question, we will need to stay quiet during negotiations (and we have several items like that right now).
When the agloco viewbar is realse, I'm hoping this would be one of the best ways to make money online and a great income source.
With all the attention – both negative and positive – that online paid surveys are getting these days, I am sure some of you have preconceived ideas about paid surveys already. However, as with most other things, it is better if you do some background research (as you are probably doing now because you are reading this forum) before you pass judgment.
Online paid surveys have gotten a lot of flak and some of them are not unjustified. There are several reasons for this, the main one would be the scammers out there who just want your personal details so that they can spam you. Yet there are legitimate online paid survey sites and market research companies out there who are definitely not scammers but nevertheless do not provide the expectations of their panelists.
If you are like me, your main goal in taking online paid surveys is to earn cash. This is the main issue even with legit online paid survey sites actually. Though many of them are not out to scam you, they do not actually pay cash for their surveys. Instead, you get trinkets and other token rewards. Otherwise, you are just entered for a cash drawing. Those drawings involve considerable amounts of money but of course, what are the chances of you actually winning them on a regular basis?
Our best bet then is to pinpoint the sites that actually do pay cash for each survey taken. These sites will not probably pay much – several dollars at best. It may not seem much but in my experience, many little things add up to bigger things. So my strategy is to sign up with as many sites as possible. I make sure that the sites do pay cash (no matter how small) for each and every survey completed. As I will probably get a limited amount of surveys per company anyway, I just make sure that I can make up for it with quantity. Several dollars per week per site actually adds up to a fair amount in a month’s time. I also take on sites that pay in gift checks or certificates. Though I wouldn’t be getting cold cash, I’d still be able to purchase what I want with them.
How do survey companies make money?
They actually do get a lot in return for paying you to answer their surveys. Big brand names pays this survey companies to help them in researching, assessing, and testing the applicability of new products or experimenting with new advertising methods for their existing products. These collection of facts from which conclusions may be drawn from the consumer responses is having incalculable monetary, intellectual, or financial worth to them.
The data can be used to find the right market for their product and estimate interest in their products. They can also test advertising before they spend a huge amount of money on a national advertising campaign.
Not only do the companies get a huge amount of sum from the information gathered from consumer responses, but they can even use the amount in the aggregate to form very detailed ideas of what a certain market segment wants or needs. Consumer testing done through paid surveys are one of the most important methods of research and testing that big companies use to research, develop and market their products. It's a win-win for them, for the consumer and for the people taking and answering the surveys.

Well, the agloco viewbar is still not released but here are the initial details of the viewbar taken from the official blog:
The Download Process: As we have discussed, we will be releasing the Viewbar first to Members who joined first. Currently, the plan is to have the Viewbar first be available to Members with ID#s beginning in BBBB to BBBF (as well as Members with an ID# beginning in “AGLO”). This is about 50,000 Members. We will then continue releasing the Viewbar to more and more Members in the order in which they signed up (again, all Members will be notified by email when their account is authorized for Viewbar download).
Multiple Users on One Viewbar: As stated previously, multiple Members may use the same Viewbar on the same computer. Only one Viewbar download will be necessary as the Viewbar software will enable each Member to log in and log out using their AGLOCO Member ID# and password (obviously, only one Member ID# can be accumulating Viewbar hours at any one time).
Initial Launch for Windows: The initial Viewbar release will be for Windows Vista, XP, and 2000. Later, we will release Mac and Linux versions of the Viewbar. Until that occurs, Mac/Linux users can still log onto any supported Windows computer and accumulate their five hours. Hopefully, five hours a month (about 10 minutes a day on average) on a Windows-based computer can be manageable until the Mac version can be released.
Seamless Updates: The v1.0 Viewbar is purposely simplistic and minimalist, but it also comes equipped with an automatic self-updating feature. Once you download the Viewbar for the first time, your Viewbar will be seamlessly updated with new additions and features as they become available.
Revenue and Ad Deals: As a member of the revenue team, I am happy to report that we now have agreements with 17 ad networks. These agreements plus some direct advertising deals provide AGLOCO with thousands of advertisers with thousands of ads for the Viewbar software.
Also, AGLOCO had a record day of new Member signups yesterday – just wanted to thank all for you who have been supporting AGLOCO with your continued recruiting efforts.
We’re about to launch! I am very excited, I hope you are too.

I decided to finally make a blog post about Cash Lagoon. People from different making money forums are saying great things about Cash Lagoon. To earn money, they want you to complete a few offers, surveys from their sponsors. Most of the offers or surveys do not require you to buy anything, have a credit card, or anything of that nature. Payout would probably be better if you did the paid offers. You earn points to qualify for the free money. The points you earn is redeemable for cash. You can make money quickly and easily. They estimate that you can earn to as much as $30 in under an hour from their 100% free offers.
- payout sent directly to your paypal account, bank account, egold or check
- minimum cash out with as little as $2!
- fast crediting of points (less than 15 min for most offers)
- well organize.
- offers that you're not ineligible can easily be separated
- In order to participate, you must be in the USA. This means your COMPUTER must also be in the USA connected to the internet in the USA.
- some of the offers don't credit quickly
Wow. Ive just made a blogpost a couple of days ago about spymac and now I got this email.
You've made $1.39 on Spymac! Your total balance is now $1.39! We gave you this money because one of your friends uploaded something to our site that received a lot of visitors, and you as the invitor have earned 10% of their revenue.So $1.39 is 10% of $14. That referral of mine got something really interesting or its just that easy and fast to make money using Spymac. And that is just for one referral. For my part, its not really that big amount of money but its good to see some earning. Spymac seems to be another great alternative to make money online. I'd say it has lot of potential, the underdog of making money opportunities online. I highly recommend it and I would like to invite you to join.
The agloco viewbar is still not available. I can't wait for its released. I have high expectations for this new way to make money online. Everyone seems to be talking about agloco. Agloco is all over the blogosphere but the agloco viewbar is still in the making. Engineers are based in China. Are they outsourcing to save? confused.

Make money online blog has been ranking well for its main keyword agloco in google. How did I do it? Well, I read a lot of seo blogs and joined webmaster forums. One of my favorite blog is Netbusinessblog. It's actually quite new. It went live just in time I was learning the basics of seo, backlinks, anchor text, page rank, link building etc. In other words, Perfect Timing. As a newbie back then, I find the blogpost easy to understand and instructions easy follow. Nothing too complicated. I tried to make my very own network of adsense mini sites with the knowledge I've learned from this blog. Now, I'm writing this review for a backlink. As a webmaster, Im constantly looking for backlinks. Good, quality backlinks indicate that this blog is getting popular. It is also important for SEO because some search engines, especially Google, will give it more credit, making it an authority site and it will appear on top of serp or search engine result page.
