I struggle to Refer friends to myLot and saw in my earning column 0.00. I also do not do any Tasks and saw in that column 0.00. The only money I am beginning to make in myLot is in Participating. Is that how you are also earning?

Hi dee, I've read elsewhere in mylot that referrals don't always work well. Many people think it's too much work for little money. I earn only by responding. I've never started a discussion, although my friends here have urged me to do so. I've done a few tasks, mostly just joining a couple of sites under someone else. But I feel guilty about that because I am so busy online struggling to earn that I stopped being active in those sites. It was too much for me to handle. There are only so many hours in a day. I have also earned from using the mylot search - .13 to .21 at a time. It's nice because it credits right away. So, to answer your question, I mostly earn by responding. That's it.

Hello deazil! Why, or let me re-phrase - for what do you use the myLot Search? I would really use it if I know why I should? I love your responses, so please continue!

I've been referring and promoting mylot but no one signed up under my account. I don't know if someone signed up because I introduce the site to them but it's ok, at least my earning are still moving up no matter how slow. Ahh, I have 2 but they're not working so it's still nothing.

Thank you vernaC. So you are only earning by the comments on other people's discussions and posting of your own discussions? As long as the money is moving up we should be happy!!

It is. I don't think I've even looked at the tasks, and I'm not good at referring people at all so I don't bother with it.

of course its that way for all of us. I guess at one time my lot separated all th earnings but now its just put under participation instead. I welcome you to my lot and keep participating.I do not do tasks nor do I have any referrals as I watched others not get any earnings back from referrals who never participated at all.

Is it really all lumped under participation now? I thought that earnings from tasks were separate and would appear in that column, not under participation... kind of like how the rewards for searching get their own column.

Hatley and FrugalMommy, I think that it is important that we just earn. I do not care under what 'heading/section' they list my stuff. It is important to me to be moving. Referrals is hard and people do not want to get onto the boat. I am not going to bother with it anymore.

Oh, I really don't care, either. I was just curious.

dee777 i also only earn in participating. I not understand with task. It just make me headache. I dont have any referral. That very hard to get earning from referral even we have a referral. If they join after that not active so we still not get any earning.

Thank you AkamuruKei. I do not feel bad anymore that referrals are not interested. I know that I should just continue doing what I am doing. I wish you well too.

I earn from makings comments, using the search and sometime creating a discussion which will then allow you to make more comments as the comments come in. I have not done tasks in a while but I create tasks now for others.

Thank you. When you say that you 'create tasks for others' do you do it on myLot? if yes, how do you do it, or do you mean that you create new discussions for all to participate in?

I have referred a couple of people to mylot during the time that I've been a member here, but none of the people that I have ever referred have ever been active on the site so I've never so much as earned a single cent from them. Thus, the way that I am earning on mylot is the exact same way that you are earning on the site. I am making every single penny that I am making on here by the work that I am actually doing myself and I'm getting nothing from other people.

It gives me peace that so many people are thinking the same as I do on this point. I do not want to run around frantically to make a cent here and another cent there. I will continue to comment as far possible and hope to get some good topics for us to discuss.

Hi Dee! I used to make task before..and it was usually to write some paragraph about something. But because its really hard to stay active nowadays, I just settled myself with just participating to discussions...like commenting and starting discussions. I think you can earn a lot if you are really active with quality comments and discussions. Have a great day!

That is exactly what my aim is. To stay active on myLot with my comments and get good topics to discuss.

Haven't you tried using the myLot search bar? I also earn some rewards from time to time. About referrals, it is really hard to ask somebody to join and it is even harder to convince them to be active. I have a lot of referrals and none of them is active as of the moment. But I am not giving up. I will still invite my friends to join the site. I know time will come I could also find someone who will be as active as I am. Have a nice day!

I promise you that I have never used the 'Search' bar. hahaha, I will have to think what to search for. Will start using it, that is for sure. I have given up on referrals.

I do earn from doing tasks sometimes. And also get rewards from time to time when using the search bar. However, I do not have any active referrals and so that has always been zero to me as well.

I think that I will have to start using the 'Search' bar. Just perhaps I can make a few cents by using it!

I earn from all of those, and I more often participation. My referrals never active anymore, I never bother them I will do it alone with my friends here.

Thank you May2k8. Do you find the tasks do-able? I tried a few, but it took so much time and I became confused. I just left if and will try and focus more on leavings comments, or start new discussions. Do you use the myLot Search too? I feel a bit stupid in asking, but why would you do it? How is the earnings if you use the 'Search'?

It is hard to have referrals. Having this kind of work is something you must enjoy. Everyone has different interests or hobby. Joining in every site has a purpose. Almost here is to earn and learn. Mylot task is sometimes difficult. I stopped accepting tasks.

Thank you art719pinoyguide. My referrals first want to see my pay check before they join. So that means I will have to work very hard to show them the proof. I will try my best to post at least 40 comments/discussions per day from next week when I am alone and have more time.
