How many of you earn for searching?

January 2, 2009 7:50am CST
Hi there, I know a lot of you are signed up to My Homepages which some of you have reported to be a scam. I am too signed up to this get paid to search site and I don't think it's a scam. I signed up under another user and they showed me proof of payment so perhaps it's just having a funny five minutes. I have not been paid by them as yet as I keep forgetting to use it to search, but perhaps I should ha ha! I am currently using another site which does not pay you in cash but in points which in turn you can then exchange for pre paid Visa cards to spend online which I think it a great idea. I am always using internet search engines so it makes sense to get a little something back from it. I know we are not allowed to post links on MyLot but the site is on my profile page from my blog so let me know what you think of it and also if you have had any luck on My Homepages? I'd like to know if it is a scam before I spend more time on there! Thanks and I hope you are all having a great New Year!

I have been waiting for payout from homepages friends for over 3 months, and I did a ton of searches for them earning them tons of money. To me that makes them a scam, and more importantly a waste of time. They may eventually pay me, and all others but should you have to wait that long to be paid. It is absurd.

Hi there, I know with homepages the earnings are updated on a 24 hour basis or something like that so it may be that your earnings will appear tomorrow. Check later and let us know what happens!

I use Scour, and I also earn points from MyPoints for using their toolbar to search.

There is another site which does pay on my blog as well. Maybe it is worth trying that one? This new one pays in points which are then exchanged for prepaid visa cards and suchlike. The person that I signed up under has had payment from these and showed proof so I'm going to concentrate on this one instead. MY homepages does pay eventually but it can take a while, look at other conversations here on MyLot, I wish I had before I signed up with them!

I don't think people realize that you need to reach £20 in a single month. I have been paid before so maybe you other people tried to cheat. You can't make 10 searches in 1 minute. You have to do your searches slowly like you would a regular search engine. People claim they lost searches and the reason for this is My Homepages found you made too many searches in a short period of time.

I am a member too. I signed up couple of months ago last year. I have reached half the minimum but one day i found it it was reduce to 2 pound. I was disappointed and stop using it but i do write them about it. They replied to me with reasonable reason so i am back using it now at least a bit and i am aiming to reach payout one day but its a long way to go as for now but i am hoping that they would really pays its member. I also heard a lot of complains but i still believe, i just hope that they are genuine.

I am a member of this site and I also think it is a scam because I have done tons of searches through them and have yet to earn anything. I mean I think there is more to it. Because you search and make them money but in turn you get nothing. That is not right

Based on all the feedback here so far, nobody claimed that they had received any money from that site. This ready discourage people from joining this site. If the site is real, surely we can have the positive feedback. Hope I can have the positive feedback for that site.

i havent earn anything and i dont want to waste my time for getting money in return of searching i know which site you are telling i have joined but i cant make that much points for redeeming so i dont think that will work out for me so i think better to that just visit sites like SoP and mylot and post and response everyday so that we can earn a decent amount everyday so i dont think it is good to search everyday and waste our precious time instead of that do some posting so that it could benefit for both the site and time can be saved
