Don't get me wrong, I beleive in makeing money online, but clicking peoples ads and makeing a few cent seems like alot of work for such little money, and these get paid to read emails? Common guy do you realy understand whats going on? First, what you are doing is wrong, This is how it works. Some poor sap out their that owns a website is trying to get visitors to his site to buy his products. A lot of these website owners buy ads from google called adwords. They bid up to sevral dollars for keywords (words that are used in a search like "jewelry") some one does a search on google for jewelry and you will see what is called "sponcered search", these guy pay everytime their ad is clicked plus eveery 1000 impressions or page loads. Now some web owners to make extra mony from their sites join google adsense, this is the ads on their website by Google or some other search engine, and that website owner gets a small percentage of the revenue when the ad is clicked on. and the guy who's ad it is ofcourse has to pay. This is whats called click fraud. It is against google TOS to join these click sites, or to incoirage or pay anyone to click the ads on their site. Google can and will ban website owners who pertisapate in these sceams, and even file fraud and theft charges against anyone involved in defruding their advertisers. Is it worth a few cents per click to cost these poor advertisers dollars? and worse yet, if you don't beleive google canfind out you are dead wrong. They can see websites that get alot of traffic to their sites and getting a rather large amounts of clicks becouse they can track where the person to your site camefrom, where they went ( to the clicked site) how long they stayed, and where they went after that. Plus they also can get the ip address of the visitor. their must be a better way to make money online than defrauding website advertisers. and don't belive thes are big websites with lots of money. Big websites don't need to advertise with adwords, even if you see a well know store on google adwords, it's realy an affileate site useing the Main URL in the ad while deverting the URL to their affilate site. Thes peopel don't have the money to waste. I own sevral web sites, I dont use adwords to advertise. I once did, and it cost me a fortune in bogus clicks. Thats why it ercks me to see people doing this.

I haven't used any of these. I just don't know if I would have the patience to do such a thing to make the payout exactly. The only thing I do actually is just freelance work. It makes more to do so that way. I own my web site mainly for my web design service. I also do article writing and it does pay actually so I make more than mere pennies. It is true actually. Very interesting to say the least.
