    Many if not most, of the people here are interested in what I am just going to call "how to money". You can insert whatever verb you want (assuming its not 'repel') into this phrase, but the point is we are all looking for ways to make money on the internet. Therefore, I am going to summarize what I have learned in my time pursuing this "how to money" question as it relates to the making money on the internet:

    How To Money Tip #1: Figure out what you have to offer, what you are good or knowledgable about and focus on that. Are you good at writing, analyzing, programming, photography, etc.?

The key is to drive traffic to your site which you can do by using some of the other tips here.

    How To Money Tip #6: Build a blog and continue to add to it. The search engines love content and the more you add and the more targeted it is the better. Again, think about what niche you have to offer. At you can take ownership of an abandoned blog.

    How To Money Tip #7: The best places for affiliates and ads are (1) Goodle AdSense (2) (3) and (4) Commission Junction

    How To Money Tip #8: Photography: at you can upload photos and videos and everytimes someone uses it you get a commission.

    Pretty good list you did there. I would ad that people need to look at a network marketing opportunity that can generate them MONTHLY residual income. Putting in the same work for some of those survey, post on forums, ad surfing, to get paid sites you mentioned will go a lot further putting that into online marketing of your network marketing biz.

    Once one establishes an online presence the leads continue to come to grow your biz indefinitely and for free. I enjoy his luxury and other can do the same. I'm just not sure where the "get paid pennies" sites for "this or that" have the potential to really pay substantial monthly residual cash flow. After many years in the entrepreneur field, I've come to realize that it is essential to also be about the business of pursuing MONTHLY residual income building in one or more ventures/opportunities compared to just working a direct sales, one-time pay biz opportunity.
