I recently read a discussion where a member earned approximately $.90 per day on myLot. I don't have any referrals so I am on my own. Is it possible to earn that much in a day's time with no referrals without spending 12 hours each day writing or answering discussions? My highest earning for one day has been $.53 and I thought that was pretty good. Thanks in advance.

I really envy the ones who can make that much of money.I do not have any referrals.To be very honest my highest earning in a day has been $.24.Looking at the others earnings this is so little.I keep wondering how they are able to do it.I wish I knew how they are doing it.I wonder how many hours they spend doing mylot?

I'm off and on the computer all day when I am home. It's so hard for me to say how many hours I spend here but it's several hours. I think the quality of a beginning discussion seems to be the best way to earn. I had several responses to this discussion and that helps. In the past my discussions haven't had many responses. Maybe I am boring! lol Thanks for responding.

Hi Carol, The most I have earned was .46 and that was on a Sat when I spent lots of time here:) The .90 is doable of course but would take alot of time spent. I think this website is fun and the pay is just a bonus.

I do enjoy being on myLot in my free time. It's been fun and the earnings is a perk. $.46 is a good day on here and know how much work it takes to accomplish that amount of money. Thanks for responding.

You can do that if you're really full of ideas in your head, a fast-typer and has alot of access with mylot members. Having a number of great mylot members can be a help, starting 5 to 10 discussions can be a good reason also. But I believe that most of it comes from the activity you do here, because it does depend on how you come with your posts (discussions started and responses). I do believe that it is possible, but it only comes quite once in a while!;)

What helps to earn is having some good quality questions also that will get many responses. Thanks for responding.

I thought the cost of posting and responding at mylot is much more than the amount we earned. In China, the cost for one hour is about 1.5RMB(0.2USD), when you surf in commerce net site. At home, it is cheaper, about 8.9USD per month, but it is still expensive for me, because I only got one dollar per month, ha ha.

My highest earning day was about $.60 but it's rare I make much more than $.10 in a day because I don't have that much time to spend on here. To be honest, I don't think I could spend hours and hours on here at a time anyway. There's just not enough interesting stuff to read or respond to for me to do that. The day that I made $.60 I was on here for hours because I was off work sick and had nothing else to do. I don't have any active referrals either by the way.

I agree. I have days where the discussions are so interesting that I spend hours on here. Other times I am not on very long. Think the day I earned 53 cents was mega hours into myLotting and I was about half crosseyed by the time I got off here. Had terrible eyestrain. Thanks for responding. Happy New Year, carolbee

On an average you only make $.01 per discussion and reply. So it would take a lot of time to get that much. They must type fast and answer and start a lot of discussions. I have never been able to make the lowest of payout in even 2 months and I have spent a lot of hours here. This is not a place where you can expect to make money but a place to meet people and spend time making friends. The pennies you earn is just an incentive. It's the people who are here that make the site what it is, A fun place where you share your life and feelings as well as get to know more about the life and feelings of other people.

I agree with you 100%. It's be a really fun experience and am so glad I joined myLot. Thanks for responding.

Wow, $.90 per day! For me, it's impossible. Although I have one referral, I just got little money from her, and she haven't been mylot for a long time... Now, you can say I'm on my own to earn money. And I haven't got my first payment yet .lol. And I think you have done a good job in earning $.53 without referrals... Anyway, I think the money isn't so important here. We're here not just for money, but for fun and other things... So, just let us enjoy the time here. ^_^

I agree. I do very much enjoy my time here. It takes alot of work to even make close to 50 cents per day. I generally make between 15-20 cents and am happy with that amount. It took me a couple of months before I made the payout. Thanks for responding.

It's hard to say how many posts I make per day. I work part time away from the house and am not always home. Haven't taken the time to figure out the actual count on the discussions per day. Thanks for responding.

Oh, my god, $0.9 per day!I have not any referrals, and I am on my own, too. I have much work to do every day, and have no much time to do this. My highest earning for one day is $0.18, ha ha, I was happy, too. My primary intent is studying english, because I have become strange to this language after I graduated from my college one year ago, due to scarcely any meeting. The extra income paid by mylot is extra gift for me, and it excitated my interest of studying english, in a way.

I do believe participating in the discussions on myLot will help your English. It's a very difficult language to learn. Good luck and congrats on your graduation. Thanks for responding.

I don't even remember what is my best earning. Haha. I just type whatever I want, but I think it is possible to earn a lot, if your typing speed is fast, and you answer every single discussion, and post your own discussion topics.

In the guidelines it states we are paid for quality discussions. Sometimes that's hard to do with the discussions are way over my head when they involve technical discussions. Those I tend to skip. I've been answering more discussions lately. Thanks so much for responding.

Sometimes my earnings changes in a day's time and there is an increase. Guess myLot goes over all the discussions and makes any increases or deletions. Thanks for responding.

It does take alot of effort to earn but worth the effort. Have been able to read some very interesting discussions. In order for me to make $.53 in one day, it takes loads of time. Thanks for responding.

i dont think it is impossible, but if you tried really hard you could make that much, but i think it would be impossible for me to do that without referals because i am not able to spend that much time on mylot or the computer anymore due to working fulltime.

It does take alot of effort to make even $.50 per day. Atleast that's been my experience. Thanks for responding.

Hello! I think that yes, there is a way to earn that much per day. If I'm not mistaken, the ammount you earn is also based on the quality of your response. Now imagine you creating 5 Discussions in a day, and each of them receives 100 responses. Also, to the 10 Discussions you responded, you've received the Best Response in all of them. And you posted some pictures. I think then you can have something near a dollar, my friend. Respectfully.

I agree but to post a quality discussion with plus responses and best response is hard to do. Thanks for responding.

Hi there!! I don´t know how much you can earn by day, I don´t have any referrals also, but I just like to reply to the discussions I am interested in rather than responding to everything and earning a couple of cents more. Anyway, I am pretty sure there was a limit (don´t know if it was about number of posts or earning per day). If I find anything about that I´ll let you know!! greetings

I agree. I won't respond to something if I can't offer some sort of opinion or be helpful. Thanks for responding.

Not to sound blunt, but I have a life. I can't sit behind a computer all day to make a dollar. I could do a lot more for myself. If I have spare time then I come on here make a couple of cents and call it a day. I don't think anyone should use myLot as a primary means of online income. There are a lot of other sites that would be better suited for that.

And you are exactly right. MyLot is a fun place to be and earn a little bit each day but I have made more money writing for hubpages.com. Thanks for responding.

The most I have made is $.64 in one day. I think it takes a lot of time and effort to make more then that. On the day that I made that much I spent as much time as I have answering questions and starting a few as well. I just don't have enough time and effort in me to work that hard. In fact I am going to have to slow down my myLot participation at then end of the month. I don't want to leave myLot since I have enjoyed being here, but since it doesn't really make money and I have other things I should be doing...I am going to do those things that make me money and visit myLot just for fun.

I certainly understand. MyLot is a fun place to be but not very profitable. I've enjoyed chatting with a few select friends and have actually loved reading all the various, helpful responses. Thanks for responding.

You would have to spend a lot of time on myLot to earn that much. I am sorry to say that I don't have that much time to spend on there. I would have to spend the whole day on here and I can't.

I agree with you 100%. I do think good questions brings many responses and we are paid accordingly. I have issues trying to think of a discussion that appeals to a large majority of myLotters. Thanks for responding.
