I was shocked this morning when logging into mylot to find that I had earned $1.11 for yesterdays activity... especially since I have very few referrals and none of the earnings came from then anyway. I really didn't think I'd done that much. But then, I did receive a couple of best responses and my reputation increased from 92% to 94% so perhaps I was rewarded for that. Whatever it was, I'm VERY happy... almost up to payout level for April now. Just hope it wasn't some sort of glitch in the mylot earnings algorithm So what is the most you have earned for one day? How many referrals do you have and how much of that came from them?

Well,first of all congrats ! 40 posts= 1.11$ is just amazing.......well,my highest so far has been very low when compared to yours...........well,did you upload any photos?........if you have uploaded any photos and if it was used by a large number of people,you will get considerable amont of money from mylot..........and as far as I knew,some one told me that the ratings didnot kave any contact with the earnings........Maybe I was wrong.........No one in mylot does really know,how these calculations are made...... Cheers! Best of luck to get that much every day.

I have no idea how mylot calculates earnings.. and I'm not about to try to figure it out... just be happy with the blessings as they come. And no, I didn't upload any photos yesterday.

Hi Jidesh and welcome to MyLot... hope you have a lot of fun here. Whoa, you STARTED 25 discussions? Wow, that's a lot... the most I start in a day is three so far. Am considering making sure to post a picture with each of my new posts since I think that would draw more people to the discussion. I have a software program that allows me to create professional looking graphics really easily so I can make some really unique and impressive graphics that will really draw attention.

Thanks. And congratulations on getting $2.05 yesterday. Actually, I do have referrals, but the day I earned $1.11 I none of my earnings were from them. I actually have five referrals but three of them haven't made any posts so only two are active. Your rating at the time of this reply is 96/100 to see your rating just hover your cursor over the star above your name and you'll see the rating.

its a great feeling when you see such things. Congrats and keep going..Do you post lengthy posts, how many sentences do your posts contain. Its just for knowing so that we too here know about the tips in earning big here.
• Australia
14 Apr 08
Well, most of my posts are just three or four sentences. But the day I earned this amount it was more like an average of seven sentences because I did several very long responses. The weird thing is that I have tried to match it since and haven't done so (though I earned $0.75 yesterday plus $0.19 from my two active referrals) So I really don't know how the earnings algorithm works... nor do I plan to try and figure it out LOL. All I do is contribute to the best of my ability and let the earnings take care of themselves. Having said that, I have reached payout for this month so I'll have a nice little bonus in my paypal account this time next month since I've still got half a month to go so I should hit around $20.

wow! congrats my friend. you did a good job. anyway, my highest earning so far from the very beginning since i become a member was on april 05, 2008. i earned $1.20 out of that amount $0.11 was from my one referral. presently i have 12 referrals: yesterday i got two and today i got also two referrals. meaning on april 05 i have 8 referrals. only one are active to all my referrals. keep it up my friend. see you on your next post.

I can see you're a very prolific contributor... member for only two months with a post count well over 1000... I've been here about five weeks with only a couple of hundred posts under my belt $1.20 for a day is great earnings... was about the same as mine as far as personal earnings goes. I've noticed that of my five referrals only two have actually posted... I wonder why people bother to join then don't bother with posting.

wow!how did you manage that.i do an average of about 50 posts a day and i get around 90 cents.i think its a pretty good mark you got.lets just keep our fingers crossed for the mylot down sizing that they do the other day!congratiulations.can you tell us more ways to add pictures???do you get paid more if u add pictures too with your posts!
• Australia
12 Apr 08
I'm not really sure how I did it... but I was sure happy with it. The mylot recalculation of earnings gained me about an extra 10 cents so that was nice too. You probably know more about adding pictures than I do since you have a higher number of posts than I do. But I don't think we get paid as much for loading pictures in our profiles as we do for uploading photos into our discussions.

it could be cause you have been online like for more than 2 hours. Someone said that there is bonus if u stay more that 2 hours online or something. don't know for sure, but i read it. Still congrats!

I hadn't heard that one before... however, I am frequently on for more than two hours. Thanks for the info. Actually, yesterday I earned 19 cents for only 5 posts... though one of them was extremely long... It was a discussion I posted about a family pet so that could have earned a bit even though so far no-one has responded.

That's great. You have been posting all day.I have never posted that many. I wish I had more time. Anyway it is informative that you can earn that much as long as you give quality response and informative too. Perhaps you earned more because you were rated to have the best response in the discussion. Good luck. Hope you can have your payout soon.
• Australia

Yes, I don't know whether getting best responses increases your earnings. But it may contribute. I always try hard to post good responses with lots of information in the hopes of getting a best response. I get a childlike delight in getting an email from mylot stating 'congratulations, you have earned a mylot best response'. Guess I must be a little vain But yes, it is possible to earn well on mylot. I notice that people who complain that they aren't earning much seem to have very short responses like one or two sentences. So that is probably one of the reasons.

Thats amazing figuers. i am new on mylot and i wish i can also make amount like that daily. I am trying to post quality posts on mylot. first day on mylot. Best of luck all.
• Australia

I'd say I average about $0.50 per day. The days I work it's about $0.20 because I don't have as much time for posting. But the days I have off I have more time and post a lot more. Now that I have referrals earning too it tends to increase my earnings. I generally earn at least $0.10 from them per day. That is only 2 active referrals out of five. So I would really like to increase the amount of referrals I have. I noticed the top referrer on mylot hasn't been active for sixty days. I wonder how many referrals he has... I wonder if he isn't active because he's built his referrals to a point where he doesn't need to post any more and just lets them earn his money for him.

Those are great earnings for a day on here and I am glad to hear more people say that they are noticing higher earnings here. I haven't made near that amount in a day as I am not always here for a long amount of time. However, I think my highest day has been around 50 cents. I don't have active referrals so I don't earn from them. I do like this site and I would do it if I didn't get paid but it is such an advantage!!

Yes, I must admit that enjoyment comes first on here and earnings comes in second. It is nice to get rewarded for the contributions I make... to a degree it encourages me to make even more worthwhile contributions.

Congratulations, that is a great achievement and a goal to set. I just wish I could have more time to spend here to be able to accomplish that every day. Like you, I love to voice my opinion and people even tell me that I have the gift of gab. MyLot is truly the place to have that. LOL! The most I have made in a day was .68 but I think I am going to set a goal and start more discussions and respond to more discussions to increase my earnings to at least $3.00 a week. I would like to make more but I am going to be realistic since I only have three to five hours to devote to this a week. So I want to thank You for starting this discussion as that has put this thought in my head.

All you really need to do is make sure that ALL your posts are worthwhile, on topic and interesting... like the one you have made here. Also, see if you can refer some other members. You'll probably find that many referrals are not active but the more you refer the more active ones you get. Good luck with it.

You must really be very happy right now my friend! I mean, getting $1.11 for a day's work here at myLot is really great! I do have some referrals but only two of them are really active. Somehow, I earn from them. Not much though. Congratulations for a job well done!
• Australia
8 Apr 08
Yeah, I'm really happy with it. I earned $1.11 two days ago, $0.77 yesterday and I plan to try and get enough today to get me over payout level... since I've got less than $1 to go I should be able to manage it Everybody who has mentioned referrals seems to mention that most of them are inactive I've noticed. I have 5 with only two active. Go figure! Oh well, guess it's just a matter of referring more and more to increase the active ones. Even if only 25% are active then if you had 100 referrals you'd have 25 actives... if you had 1000 referrals you'd have 250 that were active... wouldnt that be nice?

I'm having a LOT of fun on MyLot so I certainly do plan to keep it going. One of the things I like to do is go to a topic that really interests me and that I can have a lot to say about... I'm certainly not backward at coming forward

Well, the day I got those earnings I started three new discussions and responded to every person who made a response. I also responded to seven discussions posted by other people, one of those discussions I made four responses to.

i must congratulate u first for this great work u are doing quality work hence u are getting paid such a big amount u deserve it btw yesterday i made only 0.08 for 15 posts :( this is worst earnings
• Australia
7 Apr 08
Wow, 15 posts for only 8 cents... that's barely half a cent per post... I think my average earnings is about 1.5 cents per post. Don't bother trying to figure out the mylot earning algorithm... it would be impossible for a human mind to comprehend Some days I make 50 posts that I think are really good, nice and long, lots of information etc... yet I barely earn 65 cents for the day. Other days, like the other day, I do less posts but earn more... it's weird! Maybe they make it that way deliberately so it's harder to work out... the earnings information tells us not to discuss the algorithm with a view to working out how it works to get more earnings (ie. gaming the system)

hi,unfortunetly i have not made a lot though i have participated in many discussions. which i could be more clear on how we are rated though. thanks for your input and i wish you all the verybest.
• Australia

I think one of the biggest things that contributes to your earnings is to have longer posts... yesterday I made several long posts which is probably why I earned so much despite the fact that I didn't make a huge number of posts. Try making longer posts and see how it effects your earnings. Good luck with it.

Woo! that is a great news! I wish for one day i got this huge earning. My earning is still 0,07$ yesterday. but its ok. I will still continue for posting at my best.

All you can do is your best... just enjoy posting and the earnings will take care of themselves. Good luck with it... oh, and congratulations on your star rating too, well done.
