How To Get Paid For Searching The Web
Almost everyone uses search engines when he/she is looking for information on the internet. It is a habit for many people.
If someone tells that you can earn money when you are doing this simple task, I am sure that you would be interested in learning more.
Why do they pay you for searching the web?
It makes sense to have your doubts, you may think that it is too good to be true but let me explain.
There are many search engines on the internet but how many of them have you heard?
Most people know 2-3 of them and over 60% of the users search only on Google. It is true that Google dominates the market. It is the website with the most visitors per month worldwide according to Alexa ranking.
You probably already know that but if people use only Google how will the other search engines survive?
They need to find ways to promote their services. One of these ways is to pay people to use them. When they have active users, they can find advertisers and make money just like Google.
So, the idea is really simple and you do not have to change your routine to get paid for searching the web. You keep searching as you did before but you use other search engines than Google.
How To Get Started
There is only one way to get started. You find sites that will pay you to search.
After making a research on relevant programs and micro tasks sites, I would recommend only the following to make a few extra dollars with this way:
Bing Rewards: Bing is the main competitor of Google and the second search engine with active users. It has a reward program where you can join for free.
You will not earn money directly but you will be paid with rewards like gift cards. You earn points when you search but it has a maximum limit of points per day.
Qmee: You have the option to search on Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, and Bing. You will get paid with PayPal and there is not a maximum limit like Bing Rewards.
How Much You Can Earn
The money you can expect to make with this way is not much. For example, if you reach the daily limit of Bing Rewards you will make $5 per month.
So, it is worth joining these programs if you already use search engines daily. In any other case, do not waste your time.
If you already use other sites for mini jobs and tasks like Neobux, it would be fine to add a few dollars to your PayPal account but you will never be able to make a consistent full-time income with these ways.
