Cash is Good!

I have taken a part-time job, and it's definitely affecting my blogging time. I'll continue to post here as I am able.

Signed Up with Neobux

Even though I am not sure that it's worth the time it takes on the pay to click sites, I signed up at Neobux yesterday. Here are my first impressions.

The signup was easy, and the site let you see sample ads and information about how it all works before joining. Basically, this is a site where Advertisers pay to post their ads, and you are paid to click them. Their ads promise $.02 a click, but this is with the highest membership level. You will start with $.01 a click. "Extended ads" pay $.015 each.

You must view the ads one at a time for 30 seconds each (extended view for 60 seconds). Their timer does not begin until the page is completely loaded, so it takes longer to work through the clicks (of course, one can multi-task at some other job). The extended view ads come up randomly- just luck if you get one. Most of the pages have those annoying boxes that ask if you are sure you want to leave this page.

To update to a Golden membership you have to stick around for a few days. The requirements are: 1. Have 50 clicks credited, 2. Have rented referrals two times, 3. Registered at least 15 days ago. I like this method better than paying $10 cash to upgrade on Clixsense.

Referral rental allows you to buy the name of someone who did not sign up under another person to be placed under you for one month. Prices for this vary by your membership level and the number purchased. Rate per referral for one month for a standard member who purchases fewer than 250 is $.25. You can see the entire chart by clicking "Help" at the bottom of the Neobux page. Referral rentals can be paid for from your Neobux account, by PayPal, AlertPay or Neteller.

At this point, let me say that all the info about how the site works is available, but it's not organized very well. You may have to do some clicking back and hunting.

So, what do I know after 2 days? I was given 4 ads to click each day (so I have $.08 in my account). The ads refresh at a specific time each day. The smallest number of referrals that can be rented is 3, so if I want do this without putting cash in it is likely to take me just under 20 days to accrue enough cash in my account.

With a standard membership you get an extra half cent when a referral clicks an ad, and as a Golden Member you get an extra cent.

Payouts can be made to PayPal, AlertPay or Neteller. The first cashout level is just $2.00. But then it increases by a dollar each time you request a payout until it reaches $10.00 and then remains at that level.

It seems to me that this program offers more opportunity to earn more than a few pennies a day, and thus could be more profitable than Clixsense. I'll keep you posted.

Good for your for joining Neobux. Though the earning here is too slow still it pays and you can be sure that this is not a scam. I have already cashed two times $2 and $3. You can check blogs too if you like.

Hi yashiro- Thanks for a good word from someone who has had success there. I have seen one of your sites, but I'll check out the others.

Yahiro- Your first blog has been grabbed by a site that flips it over to an ad. See cornyman's post about what is probably causing this.
