Opinion Outpost balance

The first check I ever received from a paid online survey panel was from Opinion Outpost. As I wrote before, this is one of my favorite survey panels. Their surveys pay well and they send you a good amount of them every week. Here's a screen shot of my current balance on Opinion Outpost:

All of this money was earned through completing surveys and by referring people. Their referral program is very cool. Opinion Outpost pays you $2.00 for the first survey that your referral completes. So if you are good at recruiting people, this is a great way to make money online.

Updates coming soon

I apologize for the lack of updates in the past month. Finals week is coming up very soon for me, so most of my attention has been focused on studying. However, right after I'm done with it, there's a lot to talk about: Kooday, ApSense, MyTesterJobs, OrbisTrends HYIP, survey sites, focus groups, online poker and much more!

MyTesterJobs update

MyTesterJobs payment date was 2 days ago, and guess what? No payment received. Well, it would be hard to pay people without even getting their payment preferences, as I pointed out here.

However, there is a very notable update. Now, instead of the next payment date listed under your earnings table, there is "Payout Request" link. It all looks like this:

Notice how the minimum payout amount is $50.00! First of all, I've been on MyTesterJobs for about 2-3 months now, and I've only received 2 job offers. Secondly, their 'jobs' pay very little. How can anyone possibly expect to get to $50 at this rate? And even if someone managed to get to the minimum payout amount, do you think MyTesterJobs will actually pay? I'd be very skeptical.

And oh yeah, their Home page also has an update. MyTesterJobs is now trying to sell you a product, specifically an E-book about how you can "build a long-term profitable internet business":
"The complete package including all 3 Career Guides is worth more than US$ 300.00 but it is only US$ 24.90 for you as a Website Tester. With your purchase you automatically upgrade to Premium Level."

So is MyTesterJobs a scam? It's looking more and more like it. It seems like they just want to sell you E-books, be it their own or their "clients'", whose sites they send you to to 'test'. Don't waste your time with them.

Another week, another Kooday payment

As usual, Thursday was the pay out day on Kooday:

I have been slacking with the keyword trading lately, so my Profit Shares haven't gone up much. I am only just about to break into 30,000.

All else is going well with Kooday, though. Their web-crawlers are about 80% done with crawling and indexing the entire internet. This basically means that Kooday will have their own index, just like Google and all other big guys, and unlike other small search engines who just buy a license or the right to use other sites' databases. 

And that means that Kooday owns its own content.  These guys are serious about what they're doing.

Also, recently they announced that soon members will be able to customize their own reference pages. This is very good news because currently the ref pages of Kooday make it look like a really shady website, which I'm sure drives many people away from even trying Kooday out (see for yourself). If you register, however, you will get access to News and the FAQ, both of which aren't available to unregistered members. If you really want to know what's happening with Kooday, you have to read their news.
Don't know what Kooday is? You can find out more here.

BuzzBack product test

BuzzBack is a paid survey/product testing website that I registered on a while ago. I don't receive a lot of survey invitations from them, but when I do, they usually have incentives of around $2. Minimum payout amount is $15 and they pay through PayPal:

Along with surveys, BuzzBack also sends you invites for product tests. You get an e-mail with a brief survey to see if you qualify or not. If you do, you will be provided with further instructions. This pretty much means you get free stuff!

Well, today, I completed my first ever product test! It was pretty fun. I tested chewing gum. After I qualified for the product test on BuzzBack, I received a FedEx package with two packs of unmarked gum, along with instructions on what I had to do.

It was really easy. They asked me to just basically chew their gum for a week and then mail the empty packaging back to them in a pre-paid envelope:

The last part of the product test is an online survey that I should receive in mail any day. After that, whenever they receive my envelope, I will be rewarded with some money. Easy as that.

So BuzzBack is definitely worth a try. You can register here.

Unite Trade down or gone?

This is interesting. If you go to the Unite Trade page right now, you'll be greeted with an Error message. This makes you wonder if they finally decided to pack things up and run off with the money? Or are they just switching servers, like they said they would yesterday? Literally less than a week ago, they upgraded their design to a more slick, polished version. It just wouldn't make sense to take the site down after investing money into making it look better. But who knows..

Let's wait a bit and see.

Unite Trade payment - final update

Today is the day my 7-day Unite Trade investment period came to an end. I can happily report that I made a profit, although it's only a $1. Here's a nice bar graph that the website provided me with:

As you may recall, I initially invested $5 into Unite Trade, an HYIP site. I was on a 7-day plan, which is pretty much the the only plan you get with a small investment like that. I had some doubts along the way, thinking that maybe Unite Trade is a scam, but I was then reassured by their customer support that everything was going the way it was supposed to. And today is the day when I got returns on my investment:

So there you go. I made $1 with Unite Trade HYIP site after a 7-day investment. If you would like to try it for yourself, you can read this post to see how. However, invest at your own risk. Returns are never guaranteed with HYIP programs. A lot of them turn out to be a scam. Unite Trade, however, seems to be legit.

Unite Trade update 3

Wow, that was quick. I just received a response from the support team about my question:

Well then, that explains it. I guess in 3 days we'll find out how much I'll make, if anything.
Wow, that's 3 updates today. I'm on a roll, hahah.

Kooday launch delay

Today was supposed to be the day when Kooday would launch some of their search engine features. The site did go down for a while, with a message stating that they were making some important updates to their database. However, when Kooday went back live, there wasn't a single change noticeable on the site. No promised facelift, no functioning search engine, nothing..

Less than an hour later, this message appeared on the front page:

"Houston we have a problem" ... sound familiar?

Kooday's new website will be delayed.

Kooday needs a few more days to get this right. An update will be given late Monday or early Tuesday. The weekend will be used to determine a solution. We are on top of it and there will not be a long delay to get this fixed. In the mean time the site is back as usual. Mark will be available to receive calls again on Monday after he has been updated with information from the programmers. Thanks for the patience and understanding.

So there you have it. Now all we can do is wait until Monday/Tuesday to see what happens.

Unite Trade update 2

So it's been about 3 days now since my Unite Trade deposit. I don't really have anything good to report because from the looks of it, I haven't made a single cent:

I e-mailed them to ask why I haven't made anything at all in 3 days, so I'll wait for the answer before jumping to any conclusions. I'm hoping that all of my profits will just be shown on the 7th day. If not, then Unite Trade is not something you want to invest in. There is, however, another HYIP that I invested in a day after Unite Trade. I'm on a 30-day plan there. I'll let you guys know more about it soon.

Kooday payment for October 21

It's Thursday again, which means that it's payday on Kooday. As usual, here's a screenshot:

I'm not exactly sure if they have switched to the new payment system yet. The site says that a news update is coming in a few hours, so we will see what they have to say. Also, the launch of some of the search features are scheduled for tomorrow, so it would be interesting to hear an update about that. I'm pretty sure that the site will also get a much needed facelift tomorrow. I've said before that I can't imagine how many people got turned off from Kooday because it's sign up page makes it look like a complete scam.

If you want to learn a bit more about Kooday, you can check out this post. I pretty much summarized the latest happenings there.

UniteTrade update

It's currently day 2 of my investment into UniteTrade. The only news I have right now is that the site is down for maintenance. This is the message that appears when I try to access it:

SCHEDULED UPGRADE AND MAINTENANCE website is undergoing a scheduled maintenance right now (20th October 16:00 GMT to 21st October 04:00 GMT).
The estimated time for the security upgrades is almost 12 hours.
We will be back online at around GMT 04:00 hours, on the 21st of October.
We are moving our domain to a new and improved server, which will provide you with the best level of protection, security, speed, and experience.
Your patience is highly expected during this time.
I don't believe that this a good cause to panic, so I'll just wait out the 12 hours and see what happens. This is either one of those moments when the HYIP program shuts down, takes the money, and runs or they are genuinely updating their servers.

We shall see.

In the meantime, check out some of these books on the types of investing you can do online to make some money:

SurveySavvy survey panel

I really like this one. I registered with SurveySavvy about a month ago and have been filling out surveys for them occasionally. They send out a good amount of surveys and it's not hard to qualify for them. Plus each one pays well. I haven't done a survey for them that was less than $2.00.

Just a few minutes ago, I requested my first payment from them:

So there's more money coming my way!

Another reason why I like SuperSavvy survey panel a lot is because of their referral system. You get money every time a person you referred completes a survey, as well as when your referral's referral completes a survey. So if you can manage to get a good number of active referrals, you'll be making money without even doing anything. Sounds good to me.

SuperSavvy is definitely a good one. You can sign up here.

PS: Don't forget to fill out your 'Portrait'. You will get more surveys that way.

UniteTrade investment

Today I made my first investment into a High-Yield Investment Program, or HYIP as they are commonly called. I've been learning about HYIPs for a bit now and it's no secret that some of them are scams. So I did some thorough research beforehand and picked a company that has been tested by websites that specialize in testing HYIPs. The company site itself has badges from HYIP monitoring sites that are keeping an eye on it:

You can see those yourself if you visit their page.

The company is called UniteTrade.

They have 2 investment plans:

  1. 120% return after 7 Calendar days ($5.00 minimum investment)
  2. 150% return after 14 Calendar days ($100.00 minimum investment)

Since this is my first HYIP investment (and since I'm pretty broke right now), I made the minimum possible investment of $5:

All I got to do now is play the waiting game and watch my money work. I will be updating regularly to show you my experience with these guys.

If you are interested in trying this out for yourself, then go ahead and register.

They accept AlertPay, LibertyReserve, Perfectmoney, and SolidTrustPay. If you are not registered with one of these services, then don't worry, it's easy. Just pick one you like most head over to their website. I personally use AlertPay.

Kooday payment for October 14

Another week, another Kooday payment received!

I've written about Kooday a bunch of times already, so if you're still not familiar with this program, you can find more information by reading this post. This is pretty much a general overview of how it works. However, some major changes are coming this month. First of all, the search engine is set to go live on October 22. This is the moment all of us active Koodayers have been waiting for. The site will also be getting a facelift soon. That's good, because it really needs one. The "Sign Up" page looks really shady and I can't imagine how many people decided not to register on Kooday because it just looks like a scam. At last, they decided to re-design it. Good. Another bit of news is that Kooday will be switching to a new Profit Sharing Plan, which will be based on what words you own, not how many. In other words, you will earn way more if you own words that the incoming advertisers will want to link their sites to. So owning the phrase "paid survey sites" will make you much more than "Britney Spears", theoretically.

All of this is explained in much greater detail in the News section on Kooday. However, it's only accessible to members. I highly suggest you sign up and check out the News archives because they come straight from Kooday's founders and do a much better job at explaining how Kooday works than I ever will. You don't have to pay anything for signing up. You only pay if you decide to participate in Kooday and start buying keywords.

MyTesterJobs payment not received

So today is October 15, the day that MyTesterJobs listed as their first Pay Day. I logged into my account in hopes of finding some good news. To my (expected) disappointment, there was no news at all. Hell, they don't even have a News section on the site! The only thing that changed on the site since my last visit was the Pay Day date. Now, it's listed as November 15th:

I made those 24 cents from my first job for them, but so far it doesn't look like I'll be receiving any payment from MyTesterJobs. I don't really understand how they can set up a Pay Day without requesting any details about where the payment should be sent. They do present you with a solid list of payment types to choose from:

But that's where it stops. I selected Paypal, but no further information (like Paypal ID) was requested from me...

Their Twitter doesn't have any info on the Pay Day either. Ocotber 15 is not over yet, though. They still have 6 hours until midnight, but I am not expecting anything to happen.

Opinion Outpost payment check received

About two weeks ago, I requested a $10.00 payment from the Opinion Outpost survey panel. Their website states that it takes around 4 weeks for the check to arrive in mail, so imagine my surprise when I opened my mailbox today. And I check my mailbox only about once a week, so the payment could have been laying in the for a while now. And here it is:


So there you have it. I just became $10 richer ;)

Have a good day, everybody!

MyTesterJobs first website test and payment

I've been waiting to see what will become of MyTesterJobs website tester for a while now. They had a nice long pre-launch campaign under the name When pre-launch ended, the site was inactive for about a week or so. The owners kept people updated through Twitter, where they said that they needed to set up additional servers because of the huge amounts of people that signed up worldwide. Well, the site seems to be running well now because today I was offered and completed my first website testing job:

As you can see, I made only 24 cents, but honestly all I had to do was go to a specified website, look around a bit and then fill out a short questionnaire. It took me no more than 3 minutes to complete both tasks. I even waited a bit more before submitting the form because I didn't want it to seem like I didn't do any work. The site was about E-books, all of them listed on one page, so there was very little site testing to do..

My account page says that the next payout is on October 15th. Let's see what happens.

I do find it interesting though that the site asks you about your preferred method of payment (I chose PayPal), yet they don't ask you for your e-mail for that service..

Opinion Outpost survey panel payment requested

I've been with Opinion Outpost for about 2 months now and I have to say that it's one of my favorite paid survey panels. They send a lot of surveys, so you will definitely be able to qualify for some. What I like about OO is that they don't have any surveys that pay less than $1.00. All the surveys I filled out ranged from $1.00 to $3.50 per survey. I even got an invitation to a $9.00 survey once, but did not qualify.

So yeah, these guys definitely pay well for your time and input. Here is a screen shot from my Members' page:

Today, I requested a $10 check which should take between 4-8 weeks to arrive. Good stuff.

So if you are looking for a survey site to join, this one of the best. You can sign up here.

Get to Kooday Gold fast

September 30th is on Thursday. You know what that means, right? Kooday will finally take the "Snapshot bonus". In one of my previous posts, I explained why exactly Kooday's "Snapshot bonus" is the most exciting money making opportunity available to anyone who has internet access. But to quickly summarize why, here is a bit of info from Kooday's FAQ:

For each Profit-Share-Credit a member possesses at time of Snap-Shot they will be eligible for $1.

Example: If you had 33,000 Profit-Share-Credits then you qualify for $33,000

For each Gold-Credit a member possesses at time of Snap-Shot they will be eligible for $100.

Example: If you had 1500 Gold-Credits then you qualify for $150,000 plus $50,000 for Profit-Share-Credits.

So, if you really want to cash in with the bonus, then you want to reach Gold status (50,000 PFCs). You only have 3 more days to do it, but it's not impossible. Just need some serious time effort and work. Trust me, though, it should be worth it.

So here is how you can get to Gold fast:

One of the main goals for a user is to have a lot of PFCs, because they determine how much of Kooday's profits the user will get (just like in any business that lets people invest). One of the best strategies to do this is to buy a new keyword that no one owns and buy it from yourself over and over again until its value goes up to $19.xx (don't recall the exact amount of cents).  Since you are buying from yourself, it will take you $9.xx to build the word up to the $19.xx value (as opposed to actually spending $19.xx on a word valued at the same price). This will get you 1075 PFCs. And come the 30th, you turned your $10 bucks into $1,075 with the Bonus. Not bad, huh? Just make sure the word is an actual, real world and not a made up one. If Kooday's site crawlers can't find your word on any site on the internet, then it is not counted towards the "Snapshot". 

When you get to 50,000 PFCs, you become a Gold Member. Gold Members make much more from PFCs. The next level after Gold is Diamond. As with Gold, PFC earnings increase. Sorry, though - there is not enough time for you to get to Diamond. But Gold is still realistic!

So if you want to get started, head this way:


PS: You will need AlertPay to participate.

This week's Kooday payout proof

Another week, another payout! I finally got my refund back from PayPal and was able to re-invest the money back into Kooday through AlertPay, allowing me to get rid of the negative balance and finally continue to buy keywords. I managed to boost my number of shares to a little over 11,000. It still isn't even close to Gold (50,000), but a $11,000+ "Snapshot bonus" after a $200 initial investment does sound very nice.

But anyway, my personal payout for the week was small compared to Golds and Diamonds:

The good news is that I can now buy keywords again, making it possible for me to increase the amount of shares.
O yeah, and my keyword value went up as well. It's now well over $300:

Very nice.

Something different: Groupon

Now this isn't exactly a website where you can make money directly. Groupon is a website similar to woot! - the site presents you with one "hot" deal every day. Woot! has a number of different sub-woots: for t-shirts, for kids' toys, for wine.. Well, Groupon is a site for hot deals offered by your local businesses, like restaurants, bars, etc. When you register, you select your region and Groupon gives you a deal a day based on your location.

If you want to make money from this site, you have to refer people. When they join and make their first Groupon purchase, you get $10 Groupon Bucks. You can't cash these, though - you can only spend them on Groupon (which isn't a bad thing if you like to go out a lot).

So check it out.

How to make money with Kooday

As you may know, there is a new search engine launching very soon. It's called Kooday. What makes it different from other search engines, like Google/Yahoo/whatever, is its business model - users acquire Profit Share Credits (PFCs) by buying keywords. If you buy a word that no one owns (for $0.10), you get 1 PFC. If you buy a more expensive keyword, you get way more PFCs. Here is an image taken from Kooday's members' Home page:

One of the main goals for a user is to have a lot of PFCs, because they determine how much of Kooday's profits the user will get (just like in any business that lets people invest). One of the best strategies to do this is to buy a new keyword that no one owns and buy it from yourself over and over again until its value goes up to $19.xx (don't recall the exact amount of cents). This will get you 1075 PFCs. A lot of people use this strategy, including myself. It will take you $9.xx to build the word up to the $19.xx value (as opposed to actually spending $19.xx on a word valued at the same price).

When you get to 50,000 PFCs, you become a Gold Member. Gold Members make much more from PFCs. The next level after Gold is Diamond. As with Gold, PFC earnings increase. This image was taken from Kooday's FAQ page:

 Also, when the search engine launches and the advertisers will start coming in, they will want to link their site to a word that you own. In order to do that, they will have to pay you %50 of the keyword's value. So, for example, "Amazon" is valued at around $1,000 right now, so whoever owns it will get $500 from each person/company that will link their website to this keyword.

And here is my favorite part (and this is one of the most exciting things for members who joined Kooday before launch): on September 30th, Kooday will take a "Snapshot" of each users amount of PFCs. The amount that you have will determine your "Snapshot Bonus". Only for this "Snapshot Bonus", 1 PFC will equal $1.00. Kooday says its their way of rewarding the pre-launch users for their participation and for   building up the keyword directory (otherwise, Kooday would have to spend their own money to build it up).
So far I personally spent $199 on Kooday and I'm up to 7,000 PFCs, so my bonus will be at least $7,000. It's a shame that I didn't know of the "buy-from-yourself" strategy beforehand because then I would have more PFCs right now. If you manage to reach Gold or Diamond before the Snapshot Bonus is taken (which will take some time and work), your bonus will be ridiculous. If you want to know just how ridiculous, I covered that in one of the previous entries.

If you want to join, just click the banner:

PS: to participate, you need an AlertPay account (PayPal's main competitor, if you didn't know). You can register here.

LightSpeed survey panel pays

So I'm a member of many different survey panels online. Today, I noticed that I had enough points on my LightSpeed account to request a $10 PayPal deposit. It should take around 7-10 days for it to be transferred to my account. These guys offer a ton of different pay out options - gift cards and other goodies. I prefer PayPal though.

It only took me something like 7-8 surveys to reach the $10 PayPal payout. The minimum payout is $5 dollars. You can also wait until you get enough points for a $25 payout. But personally I think 10 is a good number haha.

They send out many surveys and it's not hard to qualify. Surveys vary in point value from 75 to 350+. The points add up pretty quickly. 100 points is equal to $1, more or less.

If you would like to become a member of this panel, just click here and sign up.

Example of Kooday earnings from a Diamond member + "Snapshot" FAQ info from Kooday

I took this image from this Facebook group dedicated to Kooday. Feel free to head over there, all the people on there are active Kooday members and can give you good advice.

But back to the image. It's from a guy that became a Diamond member on Kooday a while ago and this screen shot was posted by him in the group's page. Basically it's an example of how much money he's been making from profit share credits (Gold+Diamond) since he reached Diamond level. And the best thing is that the payouts are every week..

The image is kind of small, so I highlighted the best part for your convenience haha.

By the way, did you read Kooday's explanation about how the members are going to be paid their "Snapshot" bonuses? Well, there is an update. Kooday added "Snapshot Bonus" info into their FAQ session:

"Members in good standing with Kooday are eligible to receive monies paid to them at intervals throughout the year. The Snap-Shot-Bonus is in direct relationship to our future success. If we become profitable members will get their share. Kooday plans on sharing some of the profits to members who qualify for the Snap-Shot-Bonus and once a member has received their allotted portion Kooday will consider the Snap-Shot-Bonus as fulfilled and no further obligation should be expected.

Here is a breakdown of the possible maximum earnings for the Snap-Shot-Bonus:

For each Profit-Share-Credit a member possesses at time of Snap-Shot they will be eligible for $1.

Example: If you had 33,000 Profit-Share-Credits then you qualify for $33,000

For each Gold-Credit a member possesses at time of Snap-Shot they will be eligible for $100.

Example: If you had 1500 Gold-Credits then you qualify for $150,000 plus $50,000 for Profit-Share-Credits.

If you are a Kooday Diamond you will qualify for $500,000 for each $1000 you have in value of your KeyWords up to a maximum of $2,500,000. (There was talk about this being $5,000,000 but this has been changed)

Example: If you are a Diamond and have a keyword value of $5,000 or more you will qualify for the maximum bonus of $2,500,000 plus $500,000 for your 5000 Gold-Credits.

Example2: If you are a Diamond and have a keyword value of $2,000 you will qualify for a bonus of $1,000,000 plus $500,000 for your 5000 Gold-Credits.

Example3: If you are a Diamond and have a keyword value of $500 you will qualify for a bonus of $250,000 plus $500,000 for your 5000 Gold-Credits.

Example4: If you are a Diamond and have a keyword value of $100 you will qualify for a bonus of $50,000 plus $500,000 for your 5000 Gold-Credits.

When will the Snap-Shot-Bonus take place?

The Snap-Shot-Bonus will take place on September 30th/2010. Everyone out there should thank the Kooday diamonds for allowing Kooday to extend the Snap-Shot day from the rumoured Sept 22 to Sept 30th. We have (x) amount of money that we are comfortable to allot for this bonus and it has been decided in order to extend the date of Snap-Shot it came at the expense of our Kooday Diamonds. If you know a Kooday Diamond give them a great big Kiss! The main reason for extending the Snap-Shot date was to be fair to the members that are waiting to add funds to AlertPay. The process is taking many members extra time before they are able to get funds into AlertPay."

Wow I really have to put some work in to get to Diamond status. Apparently it's possible to get to Diamond by only investing $50, only buying $0.10 words, building them up to $1.075 by buying them from yourself and then letting them go. Buying from yourself saves money and also accelerates the process of getting Profit Share credits by a great deal.

PS: Kooday doesn't use PayPal anymore, they switched to AlertPay 2 weeks ago, so get an AlertPay account if you want to get into the Kooday game.

What happens after the "Snapshot Bonus" + conference call recordings with Kooday owners

I came across this bit of Kooday news while browsing the web this morning. It explains how exactly people will be paid their "Snapshot" bonuses. I was going to highlight the most important bits, but after a second reading, I have to say that all of this info is pretty important, so you won't be wasting your time reading it.

"1. PSC, Gold, and Diamond will no longer exist. This was a weekly profit sharing system that was only designed for the pre-launch site. The purpose of the "snap-shot" is to freeze your current status and establish a long-term payout to "buy out" your position in the Beta Test. There is a pre-set cap for the maximum earnings a person can achieve in each level. So, a Diamond can earn a maximum of $5,500,000 while a Gold can earn a maximum of $550,000 and a PSC can earn a maximum of $50,000.

The actual amount payable to you, based upon your level at the snap-shot time, will be placed into your Beta Buyout Bonus (or "Snap-Shot Bonus") and you will get a weekly payout until your balance is paid down to $0. This weekly payout will fluctuate. Like the weekly Profit Shares we currently receive, it will be based upon a percentage of the total profits from the site each week. So, do not expect a constant, steady weekly payout. Some weeks it will be very big, some weeks it will be very small. Most of the time it will be a medium rate based upon your level at snap-shot time.

2. Your existing keyword inventory will transfer with you into the new, permanent account system that will govern post-launch membership. You will still be able to buy/sell keywords and earn advertising revenue from them.

3. Your existing PP and AP funds will transfer with you into the new, permanent account system that will govern post-launch membership. You will not lose access to these funds. After all, they are your monies.

4. There will be a newly established weekly profit sharing system. This system will not be based upon the earning of PSC, Gold, or Diamond points. This system will NOT be based upon the buying and selling of keywords. Instead, this system WILL be based upon the ownership of popular terms that generate advertiser interest. Members will now earn profit sharing points on a weekly basis for buying and holding onto very good keywords that generate advertising revenue. Useless, worthless keywords that do not attract advertisers will NOT earn profit sharing points. This is what is meant by the expression "popular keyword bonus" that Mark has been alluding to."

So there you have it. I'm still on 7,000+ Profit Share Credits, so i really need to hurry up if I want to maximize the amount of my bonus. Hit the banner if you want to join.

And here are the conference calls if you are interested in what the owners of Kooday have to say. Pretty much everything you wanted to know about Kooday gets brought up.

For the latest call, go here.

8/30/2010 call is here.

8/25/2010 call is over here.

First call, from 8/22/2010 is here.

There you go, plenty of material for you to digest. But don't wait too long if you want to make the "Snapshot Bonus" cut. It'll be taken before September ends.

I realize that all my posts have been about Kooday so far, but this is the most exciting money maker I'm part of right now. I will diversify my posts soon and tell you guys about other places online where you can make some bucks.

Have a good day,

Kooday payout from 2 days ago +"Snapshot Bonus" info

So I received my Kooday payout on Thursday. If you don't know what Kooday is, you can find out here. Kooday pay outs are every Thursday and here is what I made:

It's not a lot, but I am not expecting a lot because: 1) to receive a good cut from profit shares, I need to reach Gold level first (50,000 profit share credits), and I am currently on 7,000+, so work needs to be done. And 2) real income will start coming in once the search engine actually goes live in a month. People will start using it, so members who own the most frequently searched terms will receive bonuses. Also, advertisers will start paying me to link their websites to the keywords I own. They will be paying 50% of the keyword's actual value, so it's a good idea to boost up the price of my keywords by buying them from myself (this saves money). Like this:

Here's another point. I've invested around $200 into buying keywords on Kooday. Here's proof:

And the current value of all my keywords is much higher than this amount:

So basically if I just sit back and let other members buy all my words, I will make a $50+ profit from my initial $199 investment. Not too bad, huh? And I'm only a small time player. Members that have reached Diamond status by now (the highest possible status) have keyword values that go into thousands. So if you can afford to play with the big boys, I wouldn't wait.

And here is another reason why I wouldn't wait - the "Snapshot bonus". This will take place right before the search engine goes live, so approximately at the end of the month (September). What will happen is that every person who is an active Kooday member and owns any number of shares will have his/her number of profit share credits recorded at that point in time (like taking a snapshot, get it?;). This 'snapshot' will later be used by Kooday to reward its pre-launch members by giving them a special bonus - each profit share credit in their account will be counted as $1.00. I currently have over 7,000 profit shares..

So if the 'snapshot' was taken right at this moment, my Kooday snapshot bonus would be equal to $7,595. Not bad, huh? Invest $199 and get $7,000+ back in a bonus. I am planning to reach at least 15,000 profit share credits before the 'snapshot' is taken in order to increase my bonus amount. The guys with Gold credits and Diamonds credits are looking at even crazier money. I listened to a recording of a conference call with one of Kooday's founding members (I will post links to the calls later). He said that Gold and Diamond members are looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of potential bonus money. But, as he mentioned, all of this largely depends on the success of Kooday as a search engine at launch. Their plan is to grab 3% of the market, which might seem like a small number, but there is still big money involved. We are talking millions.. The good news is that the team behind Kooday is confident that they will be able to grab that piece of the market because there already is a lot of buzz about this. Just look at their Alexa rankings.

So yeah, if Kooday is a success, there is some serious money to be made. You might make a case that it's a risky investment, but I say that all signs are pointing at Kooday's success. I'm willing to gamble my $200 away with Kooday if I am pretty much set to make thousands from this site in the long run.

Who am I and what can I offer You?

I am a full time college student, studying psychology and biology. Like many of you, whether you click ads for money or day-trade stocks, I decided to earn money from my daily internet use. I mean, why not? I spend many hours a day online, most of which are wasted on looking at funny cat pictures.. So I decided I'd change my ways a bit - I decided to find potential income opportunities online.

When I began my research into the online money-making world, I was definitely overwhelmed. First thing I had to learn to do was to spot scam sites. Some of them are blatant - they promise you thousands, even millions, in cold hard cash for doing absolutely nothing. Those are ridiculous.. All of us wish that we could earn a thousand bucks with just one click of a mouse, but that doesn't really happen (unless you're playing online poker, of course ;). Then there are other sites, like survey sites that make you pay to join them. I have only heard negative reviews about those. Real survey sites actually pay you and are always free to join. I will be telling you guys about some of the panels that I am on in the near future. Then there HYIPs. A lot of these are scams. The admins promise you high returns with a one-time investment, but a lot of the time you never hear from them again after you have invested. Say bye-bye to your money. We all want to have a fat wallet, but money does not just grow on trees.

To really earn money online, you need to put in time and effort. There are no cheap deals for making money on the web. Whether you fill out surveys for money, complete offers, click ads, day trade, Forex trade or do paid research in hospitals, you have to put in time and effort. And I am willing to do that, and I am sure you are too.

 So on that note, join me as I crack down the online money-making world and post updates on my endeavors and earnings. I will be telling you guys about many sites and programs that I am part of, as well as many that I am going to become part of. Right now, I am part of a number of best reviewed sites, so I will be updating you on how it goes. I will bring as many easy residual income opportunities to you as I can.

Let's make money together! And here is to making this one of the top blogs on the net!

How Kooday will make you money

I am sure I am not the only person who has joined numerous websites that promised easy and quick money, only to be left disappointed by how dull and boring the actual process of acquiring that money was. Not only will getting paid $0.01 for clicking on ads make your mind go numb, you will also be pretty bummed after seeing that you didn't really make more than a good ol' quarter after a good amount of tedious work.

Well, my dear reader, I think I finally found a little place on the internet where you and I can make some money. The best part is that it is not your usual paid-to-click, e-mail-browsing, survey-filling type of work. This is new.

And innovation creates interest and excitement. If you are reading this article, then, chances are, you have already heard about Kooday and can probably relate to at least one of those two states. But enough small talk, let's cut to the chase.

Kooday practically sells itself, so if you are tired of reading this and want to jump straight into action, then don't let me hold you back. All you need to do is follow this link:


There, the great folks that run Kooday have compiled a list of 5 reasons that will tilt the scale for you in favor of joining and giving it a shot. At least it did for me.

If you are still with me, then let me give you a quick summary of how this thing runs.

It's actually very simple. The main point of the site is for its members to buy keywords. You know those words that you type into a search engine when you're looking for something? Yeah, those are keywords. While Kooday is currently beta-testing and tweaking their search logarithms, all of its members are buying up whatever keywords their minds can come up with.

Here is how:

1) You transfer money from your AlertPay account to your Kooday page. The minimum amount is only $5 (Kooday charges $1 to cover the service).

2) Now you're ready for battle. You type a word into their Keyword searching engine. If you thought of a word or a phrase that no one has purchased before, then congrats! It'll be yours for only $0.10. If you type in something like 'Google' or 'Apple', your jaw will drop when you see that the cost of those is already in the upper hundreds.

The reason for that is because every time someone purchases a word from another user, they can only buy at a higher price. This has numerous effects: 1) the price of the word goes up 2) the word becomes popular/goes up in the rankings which 3) basically means that whoever owns the word also owns more profit shares. And you want a lot of profit shares. Why? Because every week, Kooday gives out some of their profits to its members. And just like in business, the more shares you hold, the more money you'll receive. That money is deposited straight to your AlertPay account.

That's basically Kooday in a nutshell.

And, of course, if you bring people to Kooday, the site rewards you by giving you %10 from every keyword they purchase. Not bad, huh?

Also, if you own a site or a blog, you can link it to a keyword. If you own that keyword, then it won't cost you anything to do the link. If someone else owns it, you will have to pay them some really small amount. And the best part is if someone wants to link their site to a keyword that you own, you get %50 of the price.

So there you have it. Kooday is growing fast, so if you don't want to pay ridiculous amounts for keywords in the future, then I suggest you join now and buy 'em up while they are still cheap.

Happy bidding!
