I have observed here in mylot that some people keep posting new discussions. He or she seldom participates in a discussion. According to your experience, which gives you better earning? Or shall we do both to get the best?

Or shall we do both to get the best? that's it, you can earn better if you combine both ways, but it is also possible to earn more while doing only either one of it, it's possible to earn more with your own discussion only IF all of your discussions is really interesting and getting so many responses and you comment back to those responses with quality post and you were able to further the discussions, meaning you have a longer conversation with other members in your discussion. It is also possible to earn more even without starting you own discussions if you can respond with quality post to many discussions of other members and same thing again if you can initiate a longer conversation with the discussion creator and you can also comment to other members response and initiate a conversation with that member. But I think combining both ways is still the best way if you are trying to earn more in mylot.

Just curious a bit. Is it possible to earn $3 / day? If yes, how much time will it take to accomplish it? You think 8 hours will be enough?

personally the most I had earned in a day in mylot is around 1 dollar only, but earning 3 dollars in a day is possible as some members can attest, but I believe you need to be very active in mylot to reach that amount, and it depends on how fast you type and the quality of your post. If I will spend 8 hours just mylotting and not doing other things or visiting other sites, I think I can reach that amount.

woah, eight hours? that is really long. would people be able to manage it without being dizzy? and I think not only fast typist, but also fast thinker, and also fast speed. yeah the last one I was talking about internet speed. I think if you really work hard for it, you will be able to reach it. but I guess that's not advisable. it can make you bored easily and tired. and also it will affect your health condition. so not advisable to spend so much time to post. though I think as someone with many posts already as you, it;s not that hard. it;s proven. ^_^

The toughest question on Mylot: What is the magic formula for earning here. My observations on the subject are as follows. Starting a good discussion and replying intelligently to everyone who comments on it will bring in the most money. That part is simple math. It's easy to write replies that are directed to you for discussions you created. There are a couple of things have to do here before that works well for you. For starters you need to befriend a lot of Mylotters who participate intelligently in discussions before posting new discussions will do you much good. I posted discussions here years ago on a long forgotten account that would have been excellent except I had few friends and got almost no responses. To remedy that you have to participate enthusiastically and intelligently in other people's discussions and befriend them. You have to maintain that as well. Why would anyone want to participate in your discussions if you don't participate in theirs? Getting to it in a round about way but my conclusion is that you have to do both to maximize your experience here. Hmm... I suspect that was what the people who created the site intended.

koopharper, this is new info to me. Your info and other mylotters participating in this discussion are more or less the same and all are very valuable to me. I think I will add all participating here as my friends. The more friends we have the more we will get. Thank again.

having friends doesn mean having a lot of income as we earned here based on our own post and not based on our friends participation to discussions so its ok if we have no response to our post besides even those who are not our friends can still respond if they really wanted to reply, having response will based to your topic if a lot can relate to it or if they have idea to it than those topic that is not really common to us. like in my case i have friends though i based my response to the topec i've choosen based on the interest i selected then if i have idea to the topic only then i replied. so its not really depends to having a lot of friends or just having few friends. you can jump to other topic from the others just to have a lot of post..

Of course it doesn't depend on us having a lot of friends. If they all do not respond to our discussion, we won't have nothing to write. When this is the case, as you said, I quickly jumped to other mylotters' discussion. Happy mylotting.

We shall 'do both to get the best". :) Mylot pays us for our overall participation in this forum. This goes without saying that creating a discussion and responding to a discussion has an equivalent amount of earning opportunity. Of course, how much you will get for participating all boils down to the quality of your post. :D

Thank. I have one more question here: who is judging a post to be of low or high quality? I don't think Admin will read each posting manually. As you see there are too many postings to read in a day. There should be a system that automatically records the posting. I am still unsure of this. However, what we are here is not merely seeking earning but there is more to it. Agree?

No, wonder. This is another secret. However,the fact that the number of post doesn't count up doesn't mean that the post is not judged by the robot, right? If you start a new discussion, will it count up?

That number is NOT a post count. It only increases whenwe start a new discussion (after it receives 2 responses or 1 response + 1 comment) or when we respond and/or comment for the first time on discussions started by others. It also decreases when we lose our posts due to deletions. The number is onot related to earnings. Indeed if we start a discussion and then spend our time commenting to all of the responses over and over again, it will not increase - but our earnings certainly will.

oh, i think you should do both! he he of course if you make a lot of discussions and you get responses and answer all the responses yourself... then that will already be a few more posts... then i think with that, you will have additional income to your account. =)

It is hard to really know which one earns more than the other. I usually try to do both of them. I think posting and responding to those who comments on your discussions is also very important.

Only posting and not participating in the discussion he or she started will probably produce earning but not as much. If we do both and keep the discussion alive by coming back to the discussion, that's the best I am sure. Apart from earning, I have learned a lot from discussions here. Thank mylot for providing this.

good day yanzalong, with reference to your query, i am doing both. as i am effectively doing responses and good quality discussion. hence, in this way, there will be more chances of earnings since you are working on both sides of the fence. thus, as they say, if you are working that much, then you will be rewarded much also. in every work, there is a corresponding reward. cheers.

it depends to your post and discussion, it didnt varies as they dont have exact amount on how much they will pay us on our each post. though just make it longer and with good content or just have fun and enjoy the discussion and the moany post you have he more earnings you will get. just avoid a one liner post hugh im not sure if they will count it for you to earn it really depends.

If each posting is evaluated to determine whether it is of low quality or not, I think mylot has a lot of staff members assigned to carry out a posting evaluation. Thank for sharing homeshoppers. Enjoy your stay with mylot.

I am sorry I may not have a proper knowledge for that. firstly I don't like to make discussion. secondly I only join discussion that has been already there. As far as I can remember I only made one discussion and I think it was good enough for newbie like me. however, I do know that making discussion and especially if we make it livelier, we can earn more from it. but yeah, as I said, I prefer to join to discussions and hop in to other people's responses instead of making my own discussions. well it may be due to my laziness or may because what I have been trying to ask, somebody else has already posted it. :) anyway, even though I do think and I do only responding, doing both synergistic, will do make a better earning.

That is a good question, if you do get more for posting, over responding, that would seem right. If one is busy posting great content, then that one's ability, and available time would be limited when it comes to responding. I am new to MyLot, so I shall see, I suppose. Thanks all.

In my experience, it is a consolidated activity that is probably taken into account in determining the earnings. Some of my better day earnings were when I managed to do everything: post a discussion and respond to majority of comments, post comments on as many discussions as possible and also other activities like uploading images etc.

It is better to be in discussion so that we can make clear to the problem being issued.

I noticed the same. About 20 or more posts after each others. It's seldom about their own opinion. They also don't respond if you ask them something. I don't think it matters if you post or just answering. It's about quality after all. Also very annoying each time the same subject comming up, or they post the same subject 3 times after each other but just with an other title. Responding on that is mostly useless since it will be deleted. If it's only about making money, there is no way of discussing something that keeps you busy, it's better not to post at all, just answering.

Hii yanzalong...:) According to me, responding to some discussions will earn more. Since it is simple to give your opinion to the problem that is given. Posting discussions need more time to think and sometimes we just have no idea what to share. But doing both is the best way to earn :)

Yes, we've been discussing this so far. Most have suggested that doing both starting and responding will generate the best earnings. How about you, how much have you ever earned in a day? How many hours do you spend mylotting? Doesn't mylotting disturb your scholl activities? Well, thank for sharing, zaahro.

I don't remember. I have been here only a month, I think it is less than $0.5 :D. Nope, I spend about eight hours in mylot, facebook, twitter and others sites. Since it is my long holidays, it doesn't disturb me. But yes, it disturbs me when it's school time, I am addicted to mylot, you know, eh :D.

In my opinion, it is really difficult to point out what gives more earning for me. But I guess, and it is a purely personal experience, that starting a discussion would give me more bucks than just responding. I am not that good in starting discussions, so I kind of start them too less - nothing for days together. But the discussions I have started, sometimes starts a series of responses and comments from friends and me. It becomes a cycle and there's a huge list of answers. That is a real good earning then. It is like a two-way process and like chatting. That should give more benefit to all those who are participating.

I also noticed that when I came back to the discussion I started yesterday, and I responded to some I didn't have time to respond yesterday, after a while I saw my earning was added. I thought it was because I made several responses to a previous discussion.

Yes mate, you are right. The more you participate, the more you will earn. The same thing happened with me too. I had such discussions which got pretty good responses. Importantly, there were a series of responses to and fro. That was a healthy discussion, I believe. Since then I started made an attempt to start responding to every response that came my way. These are some pleasant surprises for me. I hope the same for you too.

make discussions on myLot. Not a hypocrite, I am also pursuing earnings on myLot. But for me, I tried to make the discussion of quality, is also trying to respond to a discussion that I can respond. Whatever we do in myLot, we'll get earnings.

I prefer to respond. I find there are plenty of topics to respond to around here. I haven't really found the need to start a discussion. Even if I wanted to I can't really think of a great topic that would attract many people... so I generally stick to responding. The last time I posted a discussion was more than half a year ago, actually. But then again I was off MyLot during that time anyways.

Honestly, I don't know which would give me the best potential earning, but I would definitely suggest you to do both though. If your discussion without a single comment on it, it just not give you much earning as to respond to other people's discussions. So, I would definitely do both, and hopefully get me the best earning per day.

hi yanzalong really I make a little more when I make a quality discussion and comment back to all those who responded to my discussion.some make forty or fifty in one day but make very little as they are too laZy to comment back to the responses and too there is still a stupid and wrong rumor that he gets paid for the responses he g ets. not so. we who responded each get paid for our response, he only gets paid if he is courteous enough to comment back and make the discussion actually a discussion. Just posting a discussion or fifty makes just pennies so you have to comment back on all responses so you earn.remember this you type you earn, I type I earn. simple but true.

You mean sometimes you make 0.40 or 0.50, right? I am just wondering if I could make around $1 or $2 in one day. I don't think I can make it, considering that my internet connection is like a snail's walk.

I'm not here for the money, I am here to place discussions and to discuss and once in a while you get a nice reward. That's how I see it. It's not worth it to be here just for the earnings, that'd take too long.

As I have responded to some of mylotters' comment I said that there were more to just earning money. Discussions are all we are here for, and earnings just come in as a reward.
