it gets annoying after a while of repeated advices or descriptions that goes something like "you must post quality posts". i appreciate the replies and discussions, don't get me wrong but WHAT do you mean by "quality". at work my subordinates all knows that they will get it from me if they say things like "its good", "its fast". in my line of work, i need a 'yardstick' . fast compare to what? good compare to what? is there an actual measurement? what is good to one person is not necessary good to another. and so on. example, a few friends keeps telling me 'Pirates of the Caribbean part 3' is great. i went to watch the show and found out the show is really bad compare to Transformers. pirates of the Caribbean sucks, the show drags, the screenplay does not keep you interested, the storyline is predictable, it does not build up to climax from the beginning as it should, etc etc. Now Transformers, that show literally keeps you at the edge of your seat! so here it is, PLEASE someone explain to me and SHOW me what they meant by "quality post". do a few "quality posts" for everyone to see and tell us how much earnings you get from those. please. its just annoys me every time when someone mentions low earnings, there is bound to be one or two helpful persons who would response with "you need quality posts". i am not flaming or scolding or whatever you call it, but i need to know what you mean. like i said, don't get me wrong, i appreciate the "advice" and submissions. just need more detail. it is pointless to reply saying things neither of us really knows what it means, yes?

I will try to explain my personal understanding of a quality post.1. It will answer the questions posed, if there are questions posed. That is the first measurement on your yardstick.2.Another measurement is whether or not it repeats what has been said by responders before. Is it a "me too" post, or does it add something unique to the discussion? 3. Is it written with good grammar, punctuation, and spelling? 4. Is your response descriptive, and post as at least 4 lines when submitted? 5. Did you tag it appropriately. That is, are your tags something that will come up in a search? I hope that this is somewhat helpful to you, in your search for the meaning of quality posts. Most of the time, for the last three weeks, I am receiving 1.5 cents per post. The last week of June I was receiving 3 and one half to five cents per post.

alright! we have a winner! everyone who is complaining about low earnings (including me) should follow GardenGerty advice to get a guarantee earning of 3.5 cents - 5 cents per post!

That was before June 29, after that the rates went in the toilet, so to speak. Now my high earnings are about 1.75 cents per post, less than two cents. That is, however, when everyone else is complaining of less than one cent per post. I am hoping that things will pick back up again. I will still practice making the best responses as I can, so that when it does go back up (if it does) I am making the best money I possibly can.
