Worst money making sites and your biggest waste of time
July 3, 2010 9:23pm CST
Did you spend a lot of time on some earning programs and got very little in return? Or even joined a scam site? Tell me about your worst money making online experience I've tried many money making sites in the last few years so I've obviously encountered many bad ones and some scams. Here's my top 5: 1. Shareapic.net: My biggest waste of time, no contest. At the beginning I used it as a pictire hosting site for my blog and didn't care too much for the earning part until I finally got working paypal account. Even as a hosting site, their servers were incredibly slow and they were down very often. Then their hard drives crashed and users lost all of their pictures. I lost one year of images that I had to reupload again. A year ago I requested $75 but they got into some court trouble about copyrights and couldn't pay up. A month ago I received a mail that my payment is processing. I still haven't got it. I guess it will take another year. But the worst thing is that they shave your earnings because they don't pay for traffic from all countries but there's no way you could know how many you really earned and they won't show you any proof even if you ask them. So when there's $75 on your account, it could be $75 or it could be $1. In one extreme example they paid $2 to a guy who earned $200. The funny thing is that they don't even know from where your traffic comes from so they ask you for a few links where you posted their pictures and then they look up that site on Alexa, and analyze the traffic. How unprofessional. 2. Youwie.com Social network that pays. Blah. Wasted some time on this site too. Tweeking profile page, witting blog posts etc. Then I got 100 referrals and most of them were actually active. I even won 5 referrals on their contest. I earned $2 in six months. With yuwie you need literally thousands of referrals if you want to earn something. 3. Clixense Pay to click site. Received a check of $28 for one whole year of everyday clicking. What a fool I was for wasting time on a PTC site. 4. getref.com The purpose of this site is to get you referrals. You earn points by clicking ads or joining programs as somebody's referral. Then you offer those points to users who will join as your referral. I've got tons of referrals through this but not even one that was active. The only reason people join as someone's referrals is so they can get reward points and get spend it on referrals themselves. Nobody is actually interested in using the sites. Absolutely pointless. 5. Daddybux The only scam on the list and possibly even the only scam site I ever encountered. It was popular PTC 2 years ago and it used to pay regularly until one week before I reached my first payout. Talk about bad luck. Honorable mention: Google Adsense I guess the problem is in me and not in the program since many people earn big bucks with it. That's why I didn't include it in top 5. Earned €22 in 3 years lol. I didn't want to make my blog offensive to visitors by putting ads all over it and between posts. That's why my earnings adsense earnings are so low. Avoid these sites like a plague. lol, I thought it will be like 2 sentences long discussion when I was starting it but I guess there was some frustration left in me judging by the long descriptions.

I'm tired with these crap talk about make money easy on internet. Those people who claim they are making hundreds everyday on internet are so desperate ripping off other desperate people too. One of my friend even spent his money over those promises and he never got it back even a cent. Well, he learnt his lesson. I'm happy to come across to your discussion, good to know which sites are a scam. Happy mylotting
