OK I heard thatif you respond aprox. 100 times thats about $1. I am very new to this so please correct e if I'm wrong. I enjoy reading the disscutions and responding to the a lot. If I didn't there really wouldn't be a point in being here would there. I mean I heard people saying that they mad 20 something cents a day. Thats a lot of time to invest for so little money. Please dont take this post negativly. I just want to hear some of your thoughts.

!00 responses for $1? Way wrong! I'll give you some hints: Respond to discussions with about 4 sentences. Rate other people's responses, and always mark a best response if you started the discussion. As long as you make a response with 4 sentences in it, I have found you can earn 3c - 5c a response. Therefore, 100 responses will equal anywhere from $3.00 - $5.00.

Wow, thanks. I really do enjoy this and I'm willing to do what it takes to earn the most I can. I wish my typing skills were a little better and I could type a little faster. That would probably help. Does this count as a response? Since I'm responding to someone that was respondin to me. I hope that makes sense.

pHrost , how much is your earning per day ? I can hardly earn up to $1 per day. I do reply quite some post and what i got can only be counted by cents. LOL.

Adding comments will not result in pay, sorry. But it usually keeps a discussion going. I like to get as many posts as I can on MyLot but if I can respond to about 30 discussions I can usually make a dollar.

I've only been a member for a few days, but I figured I'd offer what I could. I'm at just about 3 bucks. That's from 124 points. I've posted about 8 discussions myself, each with a picture. So I don't consider 3 bucks for that too horrible, considering I'd be doing the same on Yahoo Answers for no cash whatsoever, lol. I think it depends on how seriously you take this. I'm only here to kill time, so the money really doesn't concern me. If making the money is important to you, then yes, you'd have to be fairly active with responses (and good ones), with posting discussions, and with bringing in referrals. I would assume that contributes quite a bit to earning potential. Regardless, I know some people are just here to discuss topics, to see other points of view and to talk about a variety of subjects with people from all over the world. The money isn't going to be enourmous, but for some it's a decent side benefit.

So far, I find it to be very much worthwhile. Yes, I'm here for the money, but I also enjoy the sense of community that can be found here. I spend a great deal of time on internet message boards, so it just makes sense to me to participate on a board where I can actually make a few dollars by doing so.

Ok so how did you add pictures to your discussions? I was told you couldn't do that untill you had 500 post.

Just for some more to compare to, I started off today with 68 responses and $2.61. But that includes some referals as well.

I've only done like 16 responses today. It seems like it has taken me forever. I like it though so it's ok I guess. I'm sure when I've been here a while I'll be a little faster. Thanks for all the help everyone.

Awwyou're welcome Serene. I'm just interested in seeing what I can do to in crease my earnings. I mean I dont wanna waste time with the little thing if they don't matter such as uploading photos or rating each response. Do those things really matter?

Its not like that . In the beginning I also thought that its foolish to spend so much time doing this work for just some cents. But now I am pretty addicted to this site and even if it would not be paying me I'll continue doing this task of helping others.

it's true that you earn only 1 cent's for a response less than 3lines.Try to have a response of atleast 3 lines you will get around 2 to 4 cents. The other ways to increase your lot earnings is to have referrals. you will get 20% of their earnings as bonus.. and also by uploading images you get 7 cents...

It's not $1 for 100 posts, as I've made (on average, of course, never really got into this site) almost $3 for 100 posts. It's not how many responses you put on a single topic, it's how long the response is as well as how much information and how well it actually pertains to the original topic.

You make more money if your discussion is popular

The more lines you respond the more you will be paid. Also if the quality of posts is good you will be paid more

Hi Some of the guys on here have actually figured out the "logarithym" for how mylot.com works out the earnings! Me...... nope sorry, I just know that if you post "quality" posts and reply with "quality" replies, sooner or later you will reach a decent payout. I set my first payout for 25 US Dollars, and wondered if I was going to make it, but I actually achieved that reasonably easy in my first month! Now I just choose what I want to reply to, and take it fairly easy! To give you a clue.......... At the moment 1472 posts/replies and earnings at 50 US Dollars!

i have logged into my lot site for the first time and this is my first discussion . i too like too earn money rather than just browsin the net. but my friends too say that u need to respond to a number of discussions to earn a dollar. usualy .01$ only is earned by a person for a discussion itseems but this amount varies wit the amount of discussions u do on that topic

The best way to make money is to go get a job because the pay here is awful. If you're bored or something and watching TV why not post here while watching TV and get a very small amount of money for doing it. I like being paid for watching TV even if it's only a few cents per show. If you take this all that seriously you really should go get a job and you'll really see the money rolling in.
