Did the discussion topic grab your attention? Well these are the sentiments of a few myLotters and quite frankly, I'm sick of seeing it! Instead of running all over the place challenging these people, I started this discussion because if you feel this way, I'm calling you out! I want to come here and explain to me exactly what you dislike about it. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but when I dislike something (or someone), I will at least provide an explanation. It's time to put up or shut up! Looking forward to discusing this with everyone. Cheers, Ed

I'm very new to Yuwie but I do have to admit, I joined 5 clubs, posted some topics, not one view in 5 days. I got a ton of friendship offers from what appears to be people just trying to attract attention to their profile and blogs that will make you rich. I don't know how much $ can be made there but I have not been impressed in my 1st week there. At my lot if I post a topic, a decent amount of the time I get some real good answers.

Hi Jormins. First off, I really do appreciate you taken the time to respond and give some decent feedback on your feelings about yuwie. Unlike myLot, you are not going to earn money the day you join. You are probably not even going to earn anything for the entire month unless you can rack up a 1,000,000+ page views on your own. You have to think more long-term when it comes to Yuwie. Let's look at the difference between myLot and yuwie: With myLot, you start earning immediately with every post you make. I don't know what the amount is, but it's definitely next to nothing, but hey, you earn it immediately, right? It takes awhile to reach the minimum payout, but you can get there faster WITH referrals. With Yuwie, you earn when other members view your profile, blog entries, your friends, comments, pictures and layouts. You also earn when you view any of your control panel pages (settings, messaging, friends, referrals, favorites, etc. you earn credit. It takes awhile to reach the minimum payout, but you get there faster WITH referrals. I have been a member of mylot for 1 year now. Actually it maybe closer to 13 months, but to date, I've earned $4.02. But you don't see me running around screaming "mylot sucks" and "mylot doesn't pay." I work a full-time job and don't get a whole lot of online time, so I don't participate often. That's why I haven't been paid. I joined yuwie August 2, 2007. That month, I earned $0.13. Although I did increase my page views, I earned exactly the same amount: $0.13. For October, I earned $1.68 and in November, I earned $5.02. I won't know what I earned for December until sometime next week, but I'm sure it increased. With both myLot and Yuwie, you need to participate to earn. You are NOT going to earn anything to brag about with either unless you get more and more referrals. I don't know what the more active myLotters are earning, but I do know some yuwieans who are already receiving over $100 monthly. I will be there soon. And from the looks of it, alot sooner with Yuwie than myLot. AND I don't have an army of referrals either. If you're still with yuwie, look me up. I'm starting to post more blog entries to help folks make the best of it. Give it some time. You can start building now or you can wait until a year from now and everyone is showing the hugh checks they are receiving to try again. If you plan on earning online for a few month and then quit, don't worry about it. If you're looking to grow and eventually live off your online earnings, stick with it. Yuwie is for real and it's going to be big. I'll help you. Cheers, Ed

I appreciate the post because I was a little peeved that the 5 clubs I joined basically had no activity. I will keep my account active as it sounds like it has very similar earning potential to my lot from your description.. Neither will get you rich overnight, but with some effort over time you can make decent money. One plus I can give Yuwie over Mylot people aren't as judge mental as on here. I'll never have a good star rating because I like to give my honest opinion here. I can understand if someone is overly aggressive and crosses a line getting comments deleted or losing star points but people should be allowed to disagree politely without consequences. That's bordering on censorship I believe.

I have to agree that people are nicer on Yuwie. We only need to stop by our friends' pages and leave a comment. Make new friends and encourage them to make a nice page and invite their friends. This will grow. I have been with Yuwie for 20 days or so and I have over 3000 page views and 5 referrals. Just think long term and we will all win.

I read through the replies and from what I know, yuwie is ONLY good if you have many referrals. You earn there by receiving page views, in other words, you make your page/blog or whatever on your page look good enough for many people to visit.. It is nothing like mylot, here I post and earn, on yuwie, all I can do is make my page interesting and visit my friends pages and give them page views, hoping they return the favor.. I will stick with yuwie, because I have good friends there, but will never count on any payment from them any time soon.. Mylot is the better of the 2, when it comes to payouts..I have had 2 payouts with no referrals at all...

The same is true for myLot has proven by my previous post showing my earnings on both. Like many online money-making opportunities, both myLot and Yuwie pay you more and faster with referrals. Both provide long-term residual income if you have active referrals. In comparing you to me, mylot works better for you because you have more time. You're probably a more interesting person too and can gen up some good conversations. I'm the opposite. On a good day, I may get 4 hours of online time. I'm a homebody and don't have much to talk about. Now I can reply all day long! Yuwie works better for me, because I find entertaining friends and we keep each other busy so my earnings are increasing steadily. The first 3 months were my fault. I'm figuring it now and will do better. I'll definitely see a payout from Yuwie before myLot. That's not my concern though. I'd rather keep focus on the residual part of both. One day, I'm not going to want to go to work anymore and will need the income. Cheers, Ed

That could be Ed, that I do have more time and so mylot is better for me. I have 1 referral on mylot and 3 on yuwie, but none are active. So, since I have had 2 payouts here, like I said I prefer mylot, but it is only for those who have more time or better at discussing things. I can only imagine if my one referral would become active here, how much better I could do..:(

When it comes to referrals, my downline is very small. In my first level on yuwie, I have 17, but only 4 are actually active. They say it only takes 3 and I believe, because I have referrals in all 10 levels already. What I've learned now is to look for people who enjoy socializing. I'd rather work with them than the "money-mongers". The socializers will stay around longer. I would say to you, don't give up on Yuwie. Why not duplicate your posts here into blog entries on yuwie. Two sources of income is better than one. That's why I don't quit myLot. I just don't get here as often as I do yuwie. Who knows, the same could happen to you. Look me up on yuwie. my profile is http://yuwie.com/trinale. Cheers, Ed

For those who have reached the $25 payout, they have been paid. There has not been one complaint from anyone about not being paid. I love it when some folks do their wacky math, come to an erroneous conclusion and call a program a scam. My advice to them is to wait until sometime next year to join. That'll teach 'em! You know that did happen to a very popular program that recently went under. Ever heard of Agloco?

It is obviously true that some folks won't be paid $10,000 a month. In the example given there is no calculation done for the people on the second tier of the fictitious person for the example, but so what? There will always be folks at the top of the ladder who earn more than others in ant referral scheme. That's ok. Personally, I do not need $10,000 a month to be happy. I would be quite content (ecstatic really) with $1,000 a month in extra spending cash.

I think that is a wrong statement to make by whoever that person was. Yes you can earn in Yuwie just like you can earn here in myLot. The only difference that I know is the way you earn. While myLot depends on how many postings that we make, Yuwie, on the other hand, depends on how active we are on the entire sites. On both sites, the earning potential is actually endless. All you need is to put in your effort and how much you put it will determine how much you would get out of it. There is no easy way to make money!

I have heard many people say this very same thing so I never wasted any of my time and joined. I have only heard of one person who has made any real money on Yuwie and he has a whole heap of referrals. I am not good at getting referrals so I am not even going to bother with this site.

I'm just curious and if you don't want to answer, I'll understand. How many mylot referrals do you have and how much have you earned so far? I'm not sure of what your definition of real money is, but if it's that supposedly $4,000 earner, I don't believe it. I know of at least two honest people who do well. One has already earned $100+ twice and the other recently received $85 for his efforts. Referrals are always good for increasing and speeding up payouts with ANY program, but numbers don't mean squat. They say with yuwie, you only need to refer 3 and each of them do the same. There maybe some truth to that. On my level 1, I have 17 referrals. Know how many are active? Two! On my level 2, of 24 referrals, only 3 are active. My level 3 has 18 with two active. I can't see the activity of my levels 4-10, but I bet the numbers are probably close to the same. I'm passively promoting the program and personally, only looking for people more interested in social networking because that's how I will earn on yuwie. So don't believe ALL the hype about having tons of referrals. Some of yuwie members with large referral numbers probably have alot of mylotters that missed the boat. Cheers, Ed

Don't sell yourself short Mooch! For the past 29 years, my career field as been in logistics management (24 military and 5 civilian). At no time in my entire career did I get any training in marketing and sales. On the internet, it's all about networking. If you decided you wanted to join yuwie, put in the effort and make it work for you, you would do it. You would invite some of your mylot friends (not all would be interested), show them how to do the same and move on. All by simply being you. Cheers, Ed

Once again, someone who took the wrong approach. Without even asking what you did, I will assume you are one of the "money-mungers". I still find it difficult to understand how someone who's a mylot member that earns for posting and replying to topics can call yuwie a waste of time.

I don't think your statement is intellectual . These two websites are different in ways of earning. Myloters post and then get earnings,yuwiers get earnings when others view ur pages,that's a different way! If you have enough time or enough interest ,you can post as many as you want;while if you don't ,sure you won't get paid.As for yuwie , the earning potential is endless,but the effort you will make to it is still endless :) to my mind...

I even found a bigger advantage why I joined Yuwie - to get more referrals for them to join mylot. That's why they have blogs there to begin with. I've read many responses and discussions of why people hate yuwie so much. So I'm looking it more on a brighter side - because this can be a bigger advantage for me in Mylot and even everyone else on here. I may be earning little in yuwie, but I can gain more earning with Mylot and pulling in more yuwie users to use Mylot.

I mentioned this before Darkangel, "multiple streams of income". You can work myLot to get paid now (although that doesn't apply to me) and build yuwie for the long-term income. Eventually, if you stick with it, you'll be earning from both. It's win-win because it costs you nothing to get started with either. Cheers, Ed

As I said I'm looking at it more of a brighter side. Whether the pay is small or not - I don't have to worry about unexpected errors 100 times through Myspace, I don't have to worry about having to change my password 1,000 of times like most Myspace users do due to phish attacks and hackers putting posts that would attack my internet or profile, it's actually fun and I like it. Mylot will aways be my favorite paid site regardless - Pays more yeah and more effective, but I know it does take time to build through Yuwie - as the saying goes "If you build it they will come." Multi-tasking - money online, own business computer repairing and working as an employed IT Tech - got to enjoy life sometimes. Thanx for the response back

I am still a member of yuwie but not active! I joined and signed up to a few groups. Added friends, posted comments, etc.. Got really involved because a friend of mine told me you could get paid. Worked hard for a month like I was a sixteen year old on myspace. I got paid three cents for all that work and effort and I even got referrals over there! I still visit the site every once and a while, but I am not too active on yuwie. I keep hoping to get more refs and build up some real cash over there or learn some secrets to get paid on the site. A good friend of mine referred me to yuwie so I try to stick with him but I just don't know about Yuwie. At least they do pay!

And I guess it just depends what you want out of the site. I mean I like MyLot but it isn't my top earner as far as internet sites go. I have been paid from here and I like the community of people here and the discussions more so than the earning potential. Some people like being on myspace and I would recommend yuwie to them because they can do the same things and get paid in the long run for it.
@trinale (1480)

You would think the fact that they pay you for DOING THE SAME THING YOU DO ON MYSPACE should be enough reason to setup and keep doing whatever you do with myspace on yuwie. I have a myspace account and don't use it much. I have a yuwie account and don't use it much, but everytime I log in I see where I earned some money. I earned $0.37 there last month. Can't say the same for MySpace. Heck, I can't even say the same for myLot! One thing is for sure though. I'm not going to get angry like some people and just close my account. I was on the train in the beginning and if Yuwie ever rises to a level of myspace and make some changes for the better along the way, I won't have to start over. In the mean time, I'll just keep earning a few pennies here and there. It all adds up. Cheers, Stan

Hi Rhane! If you don't social network sites, then yes, quitting was the right thing to do. If you quit just because you didn't earn what you expected, maybe you should re-consider. If I did the same thing, I would have quit myLot over a year ago. I've been here nearly 1-1/2 year and have yet to reach my first payout. To benefit from earning online, you have to think long-term. One day, you may not have time to visit mylot has often as you do now. What then? Wouldn't it be nice to be able to earn whether you're online or not. I see you are pretty active here. Do you have referrals that are as active? Cheers, Ed

I have not joined Yuwie till now... how much can we earn from thier programme ?
@trinale (1480)
• United States
6 Jan 08
When you look that question up, the short answer is that if you refer 3 people and each of them do the same through 10 levels and everyone gets 1,000 pageviews for the month and the RSR is $0.50, you could earn $10,235.42. Now right there is when everyone throws on their "skeptic" hat, holler "SCAM" and say it can't be done because they start thinking in the present tense. It can be done and I'm sure some will do it within a year. They would be the people with sales skills and know how to recruit the right people. When you do the math, 3 people x 3 people x 3 people and so on through 10 levels, you will need 59,000+ people to reach that goal. There are currently over 350,000 members in yuwie in just under six months. Somebody up top started that ball rolling and is doing well. For us regular joes, I know a couple people earning "regular" money ($80, $100, $125) and only going upwards. How much you earn depends on your realism and efforts. Cheers, Ed
