In MyLot you will earn from: 1) Creating discussions 2) Responding to discussions 3) Adding relevant, non-copyright photos to your discussions and responses 4) Gaining referrals. You get 25% of whatever they earn 5) Completing tasks (see the Task tab) MyLot pays for 'quality' discussions and responses. There is no definition of 'quality' but if you read and understand the Guidelines (and follow them) you cannot go far wrong. Also notice the text on the left hand side where you type. It says "Please be as descriptive as possible." What this means is that you should make good discussions that encourage others to write more than just a line or two about the subject and you should do the same yourself. Some people say 'write more than four lines' or 'write at least two paragraphs' but this, really, says nothing about the quality of what you write: how relevant it is or how good an answer. English may not be your first language but you should certainly try your best to write as well as you can. This not only encourages others to read and respond to your discussions but it may also help your earnings in other ways - and will also be very good practice for you! You may, at first, see this as taking longer (and therefore earning you less) but you will soon find that it pays off, especially as you get into the habit of writing more than one paragraph as a response. Gaining friends who are interested in the same things as you is another quite subtle way of increasing your earnings. The more friends you have who value your discussions and responses, the better. The more people who respond to your discussions, the more likely you are to earn from them. MyLot is a social community and the more you make it so, the more likely you are to earn. You should aim to increase your 'star rating' by writing well and at length about the things you are interested in. If you write good responses and create good discussions, people will more often give you a 'plus' rating and your 'user rating' will increase. User rating is stated to be a factor in the 'earnings algorithm'. (See the FAQs). MyLot is a very reliable and well run site. Unlike many GPT sites, it always pays on time (and has done so for 3 years at least). It is NOT a 'quick buck' kind of site. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it - though you shouldn't think of what you get out of it only in terms of $$$! It is very keen that people should abide by the rules and if you don't, you will quickly lose status and have discussions deleted (and thus lose money).

be active and dont worry about the money do it for the discussions not for the money and make sure your posts are helpful and informative. Its not the length that counts its how helpful the posts are.

u r getting 0.01$ for very discussion. It's normal. For 10 posts, u will get 0.1$ & 1$ for 100 posts. I'm having just 0.61$ for my 130 posts. So, I don't think u r getting less. Yes, it also depends upon your posts. How long they are? if u wanna earn fast money, try some tasks. You can see tasks in the task menu located on your myLot homepage...

You are already writing long and quality posts so that isn't your problem. What I think is causing you to earn so little is because the discussions you start are of all topics and subjects, not in a specific area of expertise. Try to focus on one field and stick to it. This would enable you to be more per post as you would have more informative and appropriate posts.
