I’ve started to use it during the evening when I come on here and only do a few searches a night for discussions on certain things, such as those about an actor or movie. I’ve noticed that if I don’t select discussions I often don’t get any results back. So far I have earned one reward and am aware of another member earning when they searched for a term I mentioned in my response. It seems that it is purely a random system which is a good thing and my reward showed up on my account after that days update.

Hi benny128! We're aware that some valid searches are producing no results at all and we're working on it. :) There isn't any more information to share about the rewards other than what's in the recently added FAQ, which you can find here: http://www.mylot.com/o/faq/faq24.aspx

yeah same as me I searched some generic terms that I thought would pull a lot of results up like porsche or cars etc etc and no results at all guess the search facility is designed to be used for discussions as opposed to the web

I don't know how it works like how many searches one qualifies for some earnings, but so far, I've managed to earn 1 time from the mylot reward. But be careful not to abuse it and only use it to search for things that you really want to find out about. That's what I think of it so far. The earnings is updated instantly and that's awesome. It was a nice surprise for me.

..hi.. I've done some surfing already and in the earning page, I didn't say specific message saying I earn from surfing.. I just saw that my earnings went up from the regular earning that I do daily.. So I think the surfing or browse section is also an additional way of increasing our earnings.. you have to choose if you want to use the web, the news, or the discussion area.. of course, if you choose the discussion and what you're looking for is not found there, then it will appear that there is not result for your search.. you have to choose the web for your searches that is not found in any discussion..

I lost all my favourites lists on my old computer when it crashed and had to have the techs put all my info on my new computer. So, I had to do a fair number of searches to replace the info on my favourites lists. I have gotten 2 rewards so far and I anticipate more, since I do alot of searching on the web for research purposes. Plus, I'm nowhere near done replacing the favourites list in IE yet. But I only have so much spare time in a day to do so. I hope it gets working for you, too, soon.

Am also surprised today, just got rewarded 4 cents! I was only searching if the topic i want to open already exists - so not to post double topics. This is really great! thank you myLot!

I have just received my first reward last night and I believe it must be something that is randomly chosen as I have searched before and haven't been rewarded but it varies I guess. Once you got a reward, it tells you how you have earned as well which is deposited directly to your account. Just use the search as often as you can when thinking of discussions as it'll reward you to cross-check as well as just for using mylot. Happy lotting!

Even before this reward thingy, I've always used the search box to look for relevant discussions so it's nothing new for me. But now I'm being rewarded. I've been rewarded twice so far. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was rewarded 2 cents two days ago. And only this morning while searching for the keyword dandruff, I got rewarded 1 cent. I think it also depends on what you're searching for too. I think. I won't speculate. I'm glad to be rewarded. Even without the reward system, I'm already using the search feature. So no difference to me one way or another except of course this time I get rewarded. Thank you myLot.

recently mylot had a major upgrade and added some new and excited features....the search engine is one of them...whenever we do a normal search we earn rewards...or get rewarded...couple cents or so.i know sometimes when i search there aren't much results so i would try searching for something else.
