It seems like I was around $1.00 when I reached 100 posts. I can't quite remember though. It seems like I've started making more here lately. I don't know if it's because my responses or topics have been better or what. I know it's not referrals since I don't have any. I still haven't really figured out this whole earnings thing. I've just been talking to people and having fun.

It's hard to remember what my exact amount after 100 posts was, but I think it was like $2.00. I know it feels like you aren't making a lot, but once you only focus on good quality posts, you'll make a lot more. I used to only be able to earn 40 cents a day, but to my surprise I earned like $1.75 the other day. You just get more into it and you get on a roll....so don't worry, within a week or so you'll be posting like a pro. : )

What's classified as a quality post? Number of lines or something?

From what they tell me writing 3 lines is part of it. But also that the answer fits with the question, everything is spelled correctly, and your answer doesn't copy what someone else said. But who knows really, what MyLot considers quality? It seems to be different every day. Thanks for the best response!

when i reached my 100th post, i earned $3.40. the maximum earnings i had for one day was when i made 16 posts for 90 cents, without uploading images or referrals. mylot pays for quality posts. other mylotters advised me to avoid one-liner responses. so i give at least responses that are 3 lines or more. i also make sure responses are relevant and useful to the discussions. we can also earn thru uploading images, 1 cent for every image uploaded to the discussion you started. and thru referrals, we can earn 25% of what they earn thru participating in discussions in mylot. :) hope this helps. ;) goodluck!

I cannot remember how much I earned over the first 100 posts, but I do know that it is not so easy at first. After a while you will find more friends that have the same interests as yourself, which makes it easier to find discussions that you like. This will make posting responses much easier, so Mylot becomes more and earning becomes easier.

I think around $2-20 for my first 100 posts, with the highest day's earnings $0.40. I'm a newbie - been here for a week and my efforts at the moment are geared around quality - I like to write so I'm hopefully going to be able to contribute some good stuff to this site. I have to say that the thing I find interesting at teh oment is meeting people form different parts of the world with different outlooks and concerns to me. I've not bothered with referrals at all - it's not soemthing I'm really in to.

I should have added that I've posted, on average, about 15 responses a day, and my average return has been about $0.30 a day. I'm not complaining. :-)

Well I can tell you how I did yesterday and you can go from there. I posted 2 discussions, 58 responses and approximatly 10 to 15 comments (comments don't always show in your rating number but you do still get paid for them). For that I got $2.39 for the day. Now when I write I make sure I stay on topic, it's a decent legnth and that the discussions are within mylot guidelines; all of that can increase how much you earn. I also rate discussions and responses along with photos. I marked off a few best responses so closed some discussions out so that might have increased my earnings as well. You can also earn more money by uploading images to your interest sections. I didn't include that in the amount I earned for yesterday but I did earn some there but the bulk of my earnings was from posting. The main thing with mylot is you have to be active. The more you do the more you earn. It really is one of those places where you get out what you put into it. Hope that helps.

Hi Padu, I'm newer here in Mylot, but I've been doing a little test. I tried for a couple of times to write 5 responds of discussion a day, and I gained in average of $0.07 to $0.14. This is with 5 responds a day without starting any discussion or having any referrals, well I do have 1 referal but he's not active). And so far, I wrote about 50 something post and already make $1.09. So it is correspond to my test earlier. Apparently maybe there is a difference of earning depending on the quality (length ?) of the post, I still don't know. PS. Can I include you as my friend...? Please

Don't post here for the money. Just think of this as a hobby or a way to spend your online time wisely. That way you won't get sad or frustrated when you see that you are not earning much. I can't remember anymore how much I earned on my first 100th post. It's probably the same as yours. That didn't disappoint me as I am enjoying my time here. Getting something from your activity here is great but the knowledge, pleasure and the possibility of meeting new friends is just priceless.

Dear padu19, You have earned little less to what is expected for the 100 posts. As such this rating and earnings are not directly related. The posts grow with the number of responses you wrote with atleast three four lines and the discussions which recieved any response from other users. But it's not necessary that you earn to every point you made in the braces. You earn a lot when you write a quality response in a detailed manner, your response should have some useful information, authortative and with some advise when asked specifically. Just 20 such detailed quality responses too can fetch you an earning close to a dollar. I have written the above with my three months experience in mylot and as such there is no precise measure or a scale for this because mylot says the earnings algorithm is of complex type and is kept a all time secret from the users and will not be desplayed in future too. So I would like to try your level best to write few responses as i explained them here on some pleasent day and check it yourself how true I wrote. All the best from oarnamav.

Thank you very much for this comment. I have only been a member for a short time and was so interested in the threads that I was giving my opinion to a few rather than a short response to lots. I got $0.32 on just my second day without much effort and heartfelt discussions, I would like to make some money (where does it come from) but am having a good time anyway. It is a shame the new design has upset some of the established members.

well i am no were near one hundred posts. i do know that when you post they give you 2 cents and if it is really they good they through in another penny and make it 3 cents. Not worth the time to me.

it means that you are making enough posts.. you probably make only 5 posts per day. try to upload few good pictures. don't loose hope. i made $0.02 on the first day when i replied only for one response. i forgot the name of the website.. later i returned after few weeks. the next day i got $0.05, after which $0.13.. after that i started earning $0.20 on an average.. trying making quality post and worthy discussions. good luck!!!

I earned about $1. I started posting responses of low quality here in mylot, so I earned not too much. In that dollar is included what I earned from my only referral and some images uploaded.

Why are you discouraged? You should not be. When you got into mylot, it is impossible for you to be thinking that your earnings from here can be big enough if you don't make plenty of posts. Post your discussions at one or two a day and post responses aplenty and you will hit the mark that you are looking forward to. When I hit my 100th mark, I had only a 1 star and earnings way below the $1.00 I was hoping to earn. I didn't know why, but I just kept on. My earnings were kept low until I started picking up on my posts more and more. Now, I know that if I want to earn more, I have to post more and be truly active here in mylot. As you post your discussions, you must also learn to respond to friends responses. There is a chance that they will not take you warmly if they don't hear from you in return. Remember that friendhip is a give and take thing. This holds true with our friends online.

I think mine is little than that.I also wonder how they earn that much.I have a cousin who post 400 and she earn already like $27.I post like 153 but i only have $2.01.I ask her why i earn so slow and she said because of connection.I used dial-up,and the connection is so slow that is why i earn so slow.So maybe you are like that too.
