Does it seem like if you want to make a good amount of money on here you have to post like a billion posts on here? Like shoot with me it seems like I have to spend hours on here and post to every topic on here if I want to make a good amount of money. So do any of you feel like this?

Yeah, it is true that you have to post a lot to make money. Why don't you try posting a picture when you start a discussion, you will get more money. I don't know how many posts you have to have to be able to post a picture in a response, but you have much more to look forward to. The more posts you have the more things you can do, like smilies etc. Make sure the discussions are quality. And by the way, you may or may not have heard about this, but mylot's earnings calculations are a secret, so I guess I really couldn't figure out the best way to make the most money from mylot in one day. The most I have made from mylot is $1.12

If you want to use a smily, just look at the words in blue that say mylot code next to the box that you are starting a discussion in or responding. I don't think you get paid for using smilies, but it enhances the experience. Of course you should be able to use bold, italic, smilies, with all those posts you have you can also cut and paste something like a news article to use in a discussion.

No-one is going to get rich at myLot, but the $10 minimum payout is easily achievable every month. I can earn more than that each month from making around fifteen posts a day. That's not too much time and effort. You need to remember it's not the number of posts which decides how much you earn but the quality and length of your posts. I can earn more from a few good responses in a day than for adding a lot of short responses. If you upload appropriate images to your posts and interests you will earn extra for adding them. Generally the more active you are at myLot and the more time you spend on the site the higher your earnings will be. It is not simply a matter of how many posts you make.

Well if you haven't develop a system for earning on line it can be slow in earning money on any get-paid-to-site.This is what I have come to realize,you must find tools that will enable you to start earning without a lot of work for so little in return.

So, what kinds of tools work for you? I'd love to find a way to earn a little extra cash, but I don't want to waste hours on the internet; who has time for that? (well, I guess that some folks do). What kind/s of systems do others recommend- what has met with success, or failure, in your experience? I'm willing to put time in for a good return, but I really don't want to be scammed.

Well my friend thats what it takes time and effort here on the internet to find out whats true and whats not.If you are not willing to seek it out for yourself then who will,that one of the reasons why there are so many scams and con jobs out here on the internet because people don't want to learn to earn,they want it on a silver platter,if you are not willing to take the time thats needed to find your niche here on the internet well you're looking in the wrong place to earn extra income.

Well, it all depends on what you want to earn out of mylot. I think the most I've ever heard people talk about here is about US$1 a day. For me, I think I've done fairly well if I manage to earn more than 20 cents for the day, though if I can earn more I will do it and I will not get too upset if I earn more than I expected to for the evening. I don't know if there's a golden set of rules to how much you earn per postings but generally speaking you get more money for more post and you also get more money for better post - ie post that are descriptive and get people involved in the discussion. Mylot is a discussion forum and it depends on people like us to make discussions vibrant and even hotly debated - you should see the ones when Muslims, Jews and Christians start getting involved and calling each other nasty names. I've never tried to, so I am not particularly clued in on this but you also get money for contributing photos. Once again you'll probably have to discover this for yourself but find some photos to put into discussions that you take part in and that will play a role in increasing the money you get out of mylot. Anyway, keep posting and before you know it, you will make your first pay out. During my first pay out, I found that I was earning about 1 cent a post, but now that I'm working towards my second payout, the payments have become much larger. So sick to working on mylot and you'll find an improvement in your earning power if you are consistent in what you do.

Now that is what I would call a quality post, tigertang, and should be worth 2 cents.

Hey only posting the more number of the posts is not the right thing here to earn the money but the quality of the posts is the important thing to keep in the mind. It doesn't means if you are doing more and more one or two liners they will fetch more money for you , it is not like that.If you really want to have more earning here then you need to post here the quality of the text rather than the quantity.Quality post means to post the text in about more than 5 lines and quite relevant to the discussion.Also start some of the new discussions on your own and i am sure this will gonna help you a lot. so don't waste your time here and there just use that in the right direction and post the quality matter and you will surely get the more money here.Keep on posting and have a nice time.

Why don't you try typing a paragraph per answer and see if it gets any better. Someone told me it has to be a small paragraph about three or four lines. Those one liners don't make much. They told me 20 discussions with a paragraph I did this and made 80 cents. I think it has to be from your interest to. Give it a try and see what happens.

Well, you would have to post over 100 a day.. That is what I usually do, to make over $1.00 or so.. Spending about three hours on myLot works for me.. I can get 100 posts in this way.

yes, i sometimes lose many hours here responding the best i can to as many interesting discussions that i find.. but it still feels like the next day my earnings haven't increased much.. i don't know,i tend to think that some years ago mylot payed better for posting.. but the community back then was probably smaller and they didn't have so many people to pay:)) i know i have made like 50 dollars in a month was.. but i was on mylot every day,and spent hours here.. so it's not really a job,u can't earn your living here.. it should just be a hobby.. and not let it get to addicting.. if there are other more important or more profitable things that u could do in those hours:)

I started out doing 20 posts a day, but now, I am tired of posting this stuff, so what I do is usually go here where I make $100 in a week. Go here if you want to see http://www.prizerebel.com/index.php?r=252950 I think its much better than this all day.

I feel like this every time I come on the site. It appears that the more you post the higher your average goes. That does not mean you only need a certain level. I think what you might really need is a few months of regular postings to get anywhere. I put it at about 1000 to start making a judgement on this site's payments. It will take a while but I'm prepared to put in the time. The interest factor helps agreat deal, too.

I made the $10 payout at around 200 posts,I don't think that is bad.I don't know all of what makes more money on here I do know it helps others if you rate their comment,and mark a best response.So I am thinking that if the content you are writing is good and people rate it you have a better chance of making more money.I also know you have to write more then just a couple of lines to make the comment count.Other then that I find that what I do is find discussion then I have some knowledge of and type away.If it is something that interests me I don't mind the time it takes to type a response because I am enjoying it.

I definitely wouldn't try to make a living off myLot, but it's pretty easy in my opinion to make around 50 cents a day. While you are doing anything else flip through the discussions on myLot and answer a few here and there. Instead of an hour in front of the TV spend an hour with myLot they are both entertaining and an hour of actively posting on myLot is probably going to generate I don't know at least 0.50 but I guess it depends on how fast you type and how many discussions interest you.

definitely good earnings not come easy friend. you need to put hard work every day . because each post you do or whatever responses you receive increases your earnings . so it is important to respond all the responses you receive for your discussion. make sure you write something of good quality , not write single liners and add pictures to all your posts . that helps in earning better . with 130 posts you might have made good money,[b][/b]
