Another way to make money in mylot--and help your discussions, too.

Lots of people, especially new mylot users, post questions asking how to make money, or make more money, here at mylot. Many of you may know that you can earn money by conducting "web" searches through mylot. But did you know mylot will also reward you if you search "discussions" as well? I do searches in "discussions" quite a bit in mylot, to make sure I am not starting a discussion that has already been started by someone else. And, from time to time, I receive a small cash "reward" for these searches. I think this is a great idea--it encourages people to search "discussions", which is something people should be doing anyway, and rewards them for following mylot guidelines. And it helps ensure that people don't post redundant discussions and encourages them to search for discussion topics to comment on. topics. So, mylotters, if you are looking to earn small rewards, try searching discussions--it is a win-win for everyone!

Hello Dear Suzieqmom! I fully agree with your views. I know that by using the search engine of this site we can make some extra cents. We can search web, discussions, tasks, photos and messages by using this search engine. I have received my rewards for searching several times so far. The reward I received ranged from 17 to 23 cents at a time. This is an excellent feature on this site to make some extra cents. But then there’s word of caution! Please remember this feature shouldn’t be misused. If it is felt that this feature is misused ten the member will receive a caution which will warn him/her not to misuse the site. So far I never received such caution notice but I know some people on this site have received it. I think repeatedly using this engine just to make some cents, or opening multiple windows and using this search engine in all the windows to increase the participation may amount to misuse and members can get warning for this. Thanks a lot for the discussion I enjoyed participating in it!

Very true--you can misuse this feature, and then won't be paid I assume? However, while there may be some who misuse the search feature for web searches, I suspect that there are not too many people who over-search discussions...lol! I actually wish more people would search "discussions" before starting their own--it would certainly cut down on redundancy. But your point is well taken and people should take care not to abuse this valuable feature. Thanks for the valuable response!

I have been here for a long time and I didn't know that! About the searches anyway. Thanks for sharing! I learned something new today!

I very much agree, it is a great thing indeed, and I would also really encourage people to do that. I do it myself, and you find a lot of interesting discussions that way. And who cares if they are kind of old? Some old discussions can need an update still!

I love finding and commenting on old discussions...and I love it when someone finds one of my old discussions and revives it. This is one of the benefits of mylot, I think.

Every little bit helps! And searching helps you explore mylot, too. Win-win in my book!

This is true! I have been rewarded twice already just be searching using myLot. At first, I receive $0.03 and then $0.10! That's additional $.13 in just one day! And ever since, i have been using the search field here to search for anything and everything under the sun and for searching about topics too!

Thanks--I hope it is helpful to people. I did do a search for this topic and none came up, so I thought I would share it.

Web searches are (probably) a BIGGER win for everyone, since they increase the amount of money myLot-admin can distribute among all the members!

True enough! I think most people know that they can earn doing web searches, but I'm not sure everyone knows they will also earn small rewards for doing discussion searches. Really, people should do both.

Hi there! Thanks a bunch for sharing this information with us. A lot of newbies here, like myself, thought that earning is just limited to participating in discussions and sharing photos. But little do we know we can still earn for searching discussions. To be honest, I'm really enjoying mylot and forget that I can also earn here. I kind of get hooked up in discussions. Cause for me, its a great way to learn from others and be learned from as well. Again, thanks. Cheers!!! :)

You are very welcome--glad I could help! You definitely have the right attitude about mylot--participating in the discussions, meeting new people, and learning about new things are the real benefits of mylot, and earning money is just a fringe benefit. However, the more you enjoy mylot, the more you will earn in the long run... Best of luck and welcome!

Hi Suzie! Yes, I also do that and I am glad that there are instances that I am getting some rewards. Doing some research before starting a discussion is also a big help to avoid duplication of discussions which can be a cause that our post would be deleted. It is a good practice for everyone. Have a nice day!

It is indeed, and I wish everyone would follow the practice. Unfortunately not everyone seems to be aware that they should be doing so--some of the comments in this discussion prove that!

I have had a few small amounts from searching discussions myself. This is excellent because not only does it help me to locate discussions of interest, but does offer some small remuneration at the same time. I often use searches because discussions disappear from the first page of recent ones very quickly, so apart from the interests section it offers a very good way of locating those which may be a few months old.

Very true--that's actually one of the reasons I do searches of discussions quite often. I didn't even know at first that we could get "rewarded" for this; it just seemed like a good way to find older discussions!

Well said, you might also when a random reward while searching here at my lot as well.

Yes--searching on mylot can bring multiple awards--some monetary, and some not but which might actually be worth more.
