Earning on MyLot.. ?

April 10, 2008 8:08pm CST
When we open a new discussion, do we earn a little bit more than our one post's worth, or less? I'm not sure how the earning side of MyLot works ~ iv been really enjoying the social networking side of things here.. making new friends and interesting discussions, but i'm really not clear on how the money-earning works, and how much you get for what. Could you guys please explain? Thanks so much.. pookz. xxxxxxxxx

Hi pookz.. According to me, whenever we post a new discussion, our posts count increments so we are getting paid for starting the discussion. However starting a discussion can only help us earn more than a regular post when we respond back to people who responded to your discussion by commenting. Starting a discussion would pay you equally as to one normal post but you are surely paid for the comments you put on other people responses though not in the same ratio. I have experienced it myself. Moreover as much descriptive a post is the more you would benefit. Rt now i earn around 0.02$-0.03$ for every single post of mine on an average and for every 2 comments i easily earn 0.01$(they may not be much descriptive) Moreover i also upload pictures so that helps me earn 0.03$ for every 5 pics uploaded on an average. These figures are just an estimate and not exact. i think i have made myself clear as to what i do to earn over here. And ya i have even joined some other online earning programs. If you wish me to give you a reference, you are welcome to send me a message.

thats really very helpful ~ i've always tried to comment on each persons response to my discussions, because i felt it was polite and helpful to do so for the converstaion, so its positive to learn that it could also increase eranings a little. xxx

I think that the folowing in the Mylot FAQ will help you. What can I do to increase my earnings? What an excellent question, and one we hope every myLot user will ask. Use myLot, post discussions, respond to discussions. Post quality content. For example, generate discussions that engage other users and provide insightful responses and comments to other users discussions to further the topic Refer friends. For each person you send to myLot you will receive a bonus equal to 25% of their discussion and image earnings. How do I calculate my earnings? Discussion activity earnings are calculated based on a proprietary model that rewards quality responses, relevant discussions and images.

Hmmmmm.. thanks balasri.. i had read that in the FAQ, but it still doesnt actually tell you 'how' to calculate your earnings. Perhaps we're not meant to know?.. is this the case because i dont want to be asking questions that will get me into trouble? I just thought that perhaps people that had been here longer would know things in a little more detail, but im wondering now whether we as participats arent meant to know everything in detail.. Could someone please clarify for me, because im still not clear on how much we earn for doing what.. thanks so much for your kind patience with a newbie here.. sorry if im asking a stupid question. xx

Not at all.I is my pleasure helping you.In my experience the one word or one sentence responses don't get you more earnings.A little elaborate and smart ones increase the chance of your earnings.

Ah, i see ~ well it does make sense that descriptive and informative posts should be awarded more than short, vague, or one line answers. Id imagine a long post, full of irrelevancies, would probably not qualify for this though, if this is the case. Thanks for taht Balasri ~ thats very helpful. I'll try to make my answers as full, and as interesting (!), as i possibly can! xxxxx

i dont think thats different to open or respond a discussion. but u can still earn more by uploading photos. some say that comments wont have any impact on the earnings

thanks jerry, this is all rather confusing for me! I've uploaded just a few photos so far, because i really wasnt sure how MyLot worked.. I love the discussions, so im going to carry on participating whatever, but i wonder if you DO earn more posting photos? I'd love to get this clear in my head, and im sure a lot of newcomers like myself are also a little confused. Does anyone have any further knowledge about how we earn here, and how much, for what for? x

we get paid for our discussions and responses,even comments.once we submit our post,we get 1 cent. what you need to do Is send your post,and you will get equal pays for your work. I think make money here is waster of time. I come here not for money just for fun.

Oh i dont think its a waste of time at all ~ iv earnt a fair bit, without even knowing what i was doing! It cant be that bad then, can it? lol But i hear what you're saying ~ i also come here more for the interesting a broad ranging discussions, and the social aspect.. but id be lying if i said that the earnings arent an excellent and appealing extra bonus! I dont feel bad about asking how to earn money here because i know that i'm also here to contribute to the community in a sociable manner.. I just wanted to be clear about what we earn, for doing what. I'm still not 100% clear though, about what we earn for discussions we've started, and photos. Can anyone enlighten me, and all the other MyLot newcomers here? Thankyou. xxxxx
