Get Paid to Read Emails, Take Surveys, and More

Who out there is looking for ways to make additional money on the internet? I am definitely one of those people, and I have tried many different approaches. I started with writing online articles for a whole host of websites, and it has done pretty well. Recently, I was looking for other ways to make money, and I came across a website that pays you to read email offers and take surveys. I decided to give it a try, and I am glad I did. Now I am not going to tell you that this is a get rich quick scheme, but it has definitely been worth it. The website I signed up for is called InboxDollars. Basically, when you sign up, they give you a 5 dollar bonus before you even do anything! Then they send you email offers on a daily basis and when you read these offers they pay you. They also have the option to take surveys as well which can pay anywhere from 50 cents to over a dollar. This may not sound like much, but it adds up. Plus, you can shop online for items you use everyday anyway, play games, and so much more. If you participated in all the website has to offer, you could really start to see the money going up. Plus, they have a referral program setup that when you sign up others, they pay you a percentage of the earnings they make as well. You can make money without doing anything. All you have to do is convince your friends to sign up and on the site. Now for the best part. After you obtain gold status, which means you receive your first payment, you get placed into a pool and when people sign up to the site that were not referred, they assign these people as if you referred them! This site is really great and I am really excited about the earning potential. If you want to learn more, or if you want to sign up, click on the link to your right and check this site out!

2009-10 College Football Bowl Schedule

Are you looking for the 2009-10 season college football schedule? Well the best place I have found to view it is on ESPN. The link is right here:

Bowl Schedule

Now here comes the big question. Who is going to win all of those games? Well I can tell you this, witihout a doubt in my mind. Alabame is going to be your national champions. I really do not think the Longhorns is going to be able to stop the Crimson Tide. Especially if they play like they did versus the Florida Gators.

How Do You Make Money With Adsense?

I have spent the better part of the past two years of my life signing up for almost every website out there that pays you money. Some of the sites have worked out pretty well, most have been a failure and waste of time. Despite by efforts and small earnings to show, I have not given up. The problem I have had with most websites is there is a middle man. If you contribute to a website that has a revenue sharing model, they are not sharing much with you. That is why I decided to start a few blogs and use Adsense to make money. With adsense, there is no middle man. There is only you and Google and the amount of money you can make is great, but how do you do it?

Well I hate to break your heart, but you have not landed on a magic page that will tell you everything you need to know to make lots of money. However, you have come to a place where I think you will gain some useful knowledge that could be beneficial to making more money.

The first thing I will discuss is the actual ads. It is very important that your ads blend in to your webpage so viewers don’t run away as if they are virus links. Make sure the background and text of your ad blocks closely matches your page so readers may be more inclined to click on the links.

The second topic I will discuss, and one that I have yet to master, is proper use of keywords. Some people have a niche for this, others like me, do not. However, using proper keywords is the difference in whether or not you will see good traffic on your site. This does not mean, however, to water down your article with too many keywords. Using Google Adwords, you can find goo quality keywords, and use them in your title, and maybe a few times in your article. This will give you good search results, without confusing the Google Bot.

Finally, a great way to increase traffic, and thus increase earnings, is backlinks. Every so often, Google scans the internet world to update its indexing for all the pages it crawls. One of the ways your site’s index will increase is to have lots of backlinks. This would be a great time for you to start socializing your website or blog through sites such as Digg, Yahoo Buzz, and countless others. The higher your index, the earlier your site will show up in search results.

I hope this article will inspire you to practice different techniques, and find out what works best for you. Remember, do not give up. There is a lot of money out there to be made on the internet, and I vow to be one of the few that have great success. Good luck!
