Make Money Online Free

This post will discuss making money with paid to click sites.

If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, Make Money Online Free – Testimonial of a Skeptic, you’d know that personally I am NOT a fan of ptc (paid to click) sites. There is only one paid to click site that I promote on this blog and that’s YouData. It’s the only PTC site that I ever found to be worth my time since they pay way above the average $0.01 cent that regular PTC sites pay. If you’d like more infomation on YouData feel free to read YouData – The best PTC site.

Anyway, today I’m here to compare another popular paid to click site called Clixsense with YouData. Notice, I didn’t even bother using a referral link for Clixsense. Yes, they do have a referral program, but if I can’t make money at a certain site, I’m not going to refer my readers to it.

Clixsense is a paid to click (ptc) site just like YouData where you get paid to click on ads. Over the weekend I received my payment from this site, Clixsense.

Is Clixsense a scam? Off course not, as you can see, the above is my proof of payment. However, here is my beef with this site.

I’ve been a member since March 21, 2009.

On March 22, 2009, I even paid the $10 fee and upgraded my account. Why did I do this? I was told that when you upgrade you get more ads to click on therefore you can make more money. Yes, I know this blog is meant for you to “make money without spending a cent”, however that’s the risks I’m willing to take. I would rather take the risk and pay the upgrade fee to prove to myself and you all whether a program or site really works or not.

After upgrading, I did get about 400 ads to click. Yes I said four hundred. But with each being worth a cent, that’s nothing but about $4.00. Which is fine, because like I’ve said before, every penny counts when you’re making money online free. But those 400 ads took me about 3 and 1/3 hours to click on. Yes I said 3 and 1/3 HOURS!
Here’s a bit of math for ya:
Each ad requires you to wait 30 seconds before you can click on another.
400 ads x 30 seconds each = 12000 seconds.
12000 seconds / 60 seconds = 200 minutes.
200 minutes / 60 minutes = 3.33 hours.

After that 400 ads, since I’m not a fan of PTC sites and I do not log in every 5 seconds to see if there are any new ads because quite frankly, I have better ways to waste my time, I basically tried my best to log in to Clixsense at least once a day. I would therefore have about 4 or 5 ads to click daily, sometimes more depending on if I logged in at a lucky time in the day.

At this very slow rate, I became extremely frustrated with trying to make any money on this site! So why did I keep up with it? Why didn’t I just cancel my account? Well I wanted my $10 back! So I decided to stick with it until I made that $10 which also happens to be payout on this site. This means that you aren’t going to get paid until you make $10 or more in earnings. So if I had quit then, that 3.3 hours I spent clicking 400 ads would be a waste of my time since I’d never get that $4.00.

At the end of October 2009, I finally crossed the $10 mark. It took me 7 months. I had accumulated $10.42 in earnings and on November 2nd, 2009, my payment was sent out.

But wait… something isn’t adding up here? Why is the check I received for $7.42?

Oh.. yeah.. Did I forget to mention that they have a $3 check processing fee?

So basically, 2 and 1/2 hours I spent clicking on ads went towards a check fee. Nice.

Do I need to explain to you why I have now canceled my account with Clixsense? Didn’t think so.

With that said here is my 27th YouData payment.

This payment brought my total earnings online to $3575.70.

I have been a member of YouData since May 2009, and I have earned $31.61 so far. That’s more than 3 times the amount I earned on Clixsense in about a little more than half the time.

    I'm glad that I started to follow your blog. You really have some interesting posts here. I love how you help people (like me…lol) from making mistakes when it comes to making money online.

    @ Jamila

    Aw thanks. Yeah I try to provide the best places for my readers to make money. I'm not saying Clixsense isn't a great site.. if that happens to be anyone's cup of tea then by all means join.. but I'd like them to bear in mind what I had to go through to make that lousy 7 bucks. :)

    I have been a member of ClixSense since 09/29/09 and am up to $3.62 as a free member. At this rate, I estimate it will take about 3 months in total to cash out. I researched about the upgrading thing awhile ago and read the same thing you experienced. It's pretty dishonest of them not to be upfront that you won't be getting a boatload of ads like that all the time. It also makes for a crappy referral program that others' upgrades are the only way I get compensated. You can cash in $10 worth of earnings to upgrade for free, but it doesn't sound like it's worth it, and the "upgrade" expires in a year, anyway.

    Checking back a few times a day while I'm doing other things on the Internet, however, DOES make being a free member worth it to me.

    The highest-paying, legit PTC that I have encountered is ClickorSignup. You can get almost $1 a day there just from the PTC. =)

    Me myself, really don't like GPC sites but I'm gonna give a go at YouData. You're the first woman I've actually seen create a blog on making money online and I admire you for that.

    Yup, if PTC is your cup of tea then the site might actually be worth it for you.. but I guess this was my experience since I do not at all like PTC. It takes too long and way too much effort logging in so many times a day etc just to make a few cents. I rather put my energy elsewhere and take the time to make a bit more :)

    COS is great! Lora is so nice isn't she. :)

    @L. Muah!

    Aw thanks for the kind compliment and thanks for stopping by!
