Cashcrate update

So, now that it has been a little longer, I wanna give an update on cashcrate. They are by far the best survey/offer site I have found so far. If you wanna join, use this link... so that I can be your referrer. :) Seriously tho, I haven't referred anyone, I haven't messed with the site much, probably spend like 3 hours on it total, and I have 56.48 coming. That means I am over the 20 dollar payout minimum and my check is on the way. Great way to make money without working too hard. If you need to buy something too, its a good way to get 15 percent ish or more of your money back for your purchase. Just purchasing things when you need them, you could probably make 50 dollars a month if you shop online much. But, I haven't spent a penny, just filled out some forms, sent them to a spam email address, and verified the email links. That's it. It takes like a few hours usually for the offers to go through, I get junk email but not solicitors calling or spam snail mail, and I haven't had to spend a penny on making 56 dollars online this month for doing something a 4th grader could do.
So, once again, if you wanna join, use my link: with referrals, cash crate can get you a steady income, cause it offers the highest percentage of any survey/ offer website.

Is Triond a Scam?

So, to continue making money online, I signed up for the site The idea behind Triond is you publish your own content. So, you can sign up for an account, then write whatever you want, and get it published on Triond's different websites. They then  pay you part of the adsense money they get from the views your articles receive.
However, it isn't quite as simple as that. There are a few things they don't tell you up front. First of all, you can't actually publish anything, only things that fit into their categories that meet their standards. I think they publish articles that are more likely to make them money and deny articles that won't. Which makes sense from a business standpoint, but is somewhat manipulative based on the claim that you can publish anything.
For example, I tried to publish an article reviewing a speech by revolutionary Egyptian, Gigi Ibrahim, available here. They denied it after a week or so. Then I wrote a quick little article on compression tools and it got published within 20 seconds (literally) of me pressing submit. Triond shows you all the search phrases that get the most unique views every month, and compression tools is number 1 with something like 20,000 unique views a day. Gigi doesn't make the list, so even though it is better writing, it doesn't make the cut.
The other thing they don't mention is that their sites get very little traffic. The vast majority of traffic will come from other triond members who view your articles in exchange for you viewing theirs, or from you advertising your article to friends or on forums. However, if you're going to do that, why not just do it on a website like this, where you get to keep 100% of your adsense earnings? Turns out the sites Triond owns to publish on aren't popular, and don't help your writing get out to the world.
So, I can't say that Triond is a complete scam, but I can say that all my research points to the fact that you will not make money on that website. I published 4 articles so far, and have gotten 6 views in a week, and have made a whopping 1 cent. It isn't worth the effort for the amount of money you make since there are better ways to earn money for writing.
Triond may not be a scam, but it isn't a way to make money. If you like writing, and want a community to share it with, I suggest making a blog, or posting for Facebook friends. Triond posts your articles on many different sites, so they won't even be in once place to be easily viewable. Your writing won't get seen by anyone you don't show it to, and you won't end up making anything for your effort. For all these reasons, is a bad way to make money online, and might as well be a scam.

Is a Scam? is the first website I have tried. Today is my second day on it, and so far I have made 11.13 cents. It's taken me probably a couple hours, but a lot of that time was just figuring out what I was doing. I've seen a lot of different sites claiming that is a scam, but so far, I don't think it is. Not only do they have a plethora of offers to do that pay pretty quick (within the one day I've been on, 80% of my completed offers have gone through), but they have a forum of other members, and a place to post your paychecks. In the paycheck area, there are hundreds of people who have posted paychecks ranging from 25 dollars to around 200. They pay out once a month, so 200 dollars a month really isn't too bad. Especially for the time commitment, which is almost nothing. works by having people fill out free offers, do surveys, or shop. The surveys and offers usually pay anywhere from 35 cents to a dollar, and take maybe 45 seconds to 5 minutes to complete. The companies that are paying cashcrate pay because they want information on their products so they can make them more marketable and make more money in the long run. They are basically paying you to tell them if you like their advertisements or not. I recommend setting up an email address specifically for spam mail, because as you start to fill out offers, you'll be giving out your email a lot. But, you never have to pay, and in just a little bit of time you can get used to how it works, and start making money.
So, my total money made has gone from $0.00 to $11.13 thanks to
