Twenty Ways to Earn Money Online Safely

Anyone searching for ways to make money on the internet can get real discouraged, real fast at all the phony get-rich-quick schemes out there. Even a lot of the don't-fall-for-get-rich-quick-scams sites are themselves scams. They get points for creativity, I suppose. Still, it's discouraging.

But despair not! There are a host of absolutely legitimate ways of making money on the internet. These sites are definitely NOT get-rich-quick schemes. But they can provide a steady, and steadily growing, source of income for anyone with a bit of persistence.

I'll get to the sites in just a moment. But first, a bit of inspiration. I earn about $1,500 a month on the internet, and I expect that amount to grow. It's not enough to fully support me and my family, but it's a nice supplement to my real-world income.

You're not likely to see that kind of income anytime soon, but by building up your online presence, you can make it happen over time. Here are the best online money-makers that I know of.

You may already be familiar the money-making opportunities at a site like Associated Content. Contributors to the site provide the content, AC provides the platform and audience, and everyone shares in the revenue generated, mostly from ads.

The content in question can be just about anything that can be posted on the internet: articles (like this one), blogs, photos, music, videos, artwork. The cooler it is, and the more traffic it generates, the more you're going to collect. Best of all, it's not just a one-time payment, but an "evergreen" source of income that will continue to pay, much as a book author continues to get royalties. A single posting might bring in a dollar or two a month, but that can add up surprisingly quickly.

Some of the best pay-for-content sites are:
Associated Content, where you can post just about anything (but no adult or offensive content, please) and get paid for the content's 'performance' and even collect additional income from a variety of bonuses and exclusive content arrangements.

Creative Weblogging. Blogs only at this site. Get accepted as a blog editor, make a minimum of three posts every week, and collect at least $84 per month.

eHow is an ad revenue sharing site where anyone can post "How to" articles on pretty much anything. The more viewers click on the ads, the more income you'll make.

Flixya is another site where you can post just about any form of content. They offer to put 100% of ad revenue in your pocket, rather than merely sharing it. Sounds great, but I haven't yet come across anyone making a substantial sum here. Time will tell.

istockphoto, a site for photos and video clips. This is a marketplace site. People like your photo, they buy it to use, and you and the website share in the income. A single photo can be sold many times over. Another option for photos is MicroStockPhotography.

mylot, a sort of social networking site, offers payment every time you use the site! I haven't tried it myself, but it seems worth exploring.
Xomba is another post-pretty-much-anything site, and share the ad revenue.

If you have a particular talent that can be practiced on the web, then there are plenty of folks in need of your service as a freelancer. Freelance sites are heavy on offers to hire programmers, website designers, graphic artists, copy writers, photographers, and videographers, to name the most popular. But pretty much anything that can be transacted over the internet is up for grabs. Pay can be pretty decent, but keep in mind that you're competing against freelancers the world over, where payscales can be a lot tougher.

The freelance sites are all pretty similar. Three of the most popular are elance, guru, and ifreelance.

Online tutoring is a growing field, and covers everything from grade school through college. You have to apply and be accepted as a tutor, but once in, there appears to be a steady workload available, if you want it. There are many tutoring sites out there. Two of the most well-known are and ehomeworkhelp, while Tutorvista is a fast-growing newcomer in this area.

Jury Duty
No joke! You can get paid for online jury duty. Well, let's call it mock jury duty. Law firms like to have feedback from everyday folk like us on how their case presentations will play before a real jury. They'll post a briefing package for your review, and pay you for your time. To sign up for online jury duty, head to,, or

Virtual Office Assistant
Take a look at TeamDoubleClick, where you can sign on for temporary online office jobs: handling correspondence, emails, bookkeeping, data entry, and so on. It's an online temp agency in the virtual world.

Listen to Music
This is bound to be someone's dream job. will pay your for listening to music. Select upcoming artists, give them a listen, and review their music. The better you are at spotting new talent, the more you can get paid. Some folks are pulling in several dollars per review.

Play Games
This might be the strangest one of all. will start you off with a penny, and give you chances to double your money (again and again) through online game play and other activities. Along the way, you'll encounter lots of ads and opportunities to sign up for deals, thus earning Moola...and you...some cash. Moola labels itself a "Massively Multiplayer Rewards Game". It's a bit complicated, and I confess, I haven't tried it much myself, but it seems legitimate, and I know folks who speak highly of the experience.

There you have it. Twenty sites (count 'em) that will pay you for spending time online, and in many cases, doing what you would have been doing anyway.

Isn't the internet wonderful?

Learn How to Make Money Using Google Adsense

There is more to knowing how to use Google AdSense to make money than just placing a few Adsense blocks on some of your websites. That is fine if you want to make a few dollars a month from your website for little effort, and get a $100 check sent to you every now and again, but not if you want to make more substantial money than that.

If you are designing a site specifically for Adsense, you must first find a suitable niche with good keywords that people are paying substantial amounts for in the Google Adwords program. That is because it is the Google Adwords adverts that are used by Google on your Adsense site. If there is a fair number of high cost clicks in your niche, then you have a good chance of these appearing on your website.

Be prepared to design a decent website that people are going to want to visit, since adsense or not, it will be difficult to get your website listed on Google if your site has a low level of relevance to the search terms, or keywords, used by people using Google for their search. There is little point in using Google Adwords to advertise a site monetized only with Google Adsense! If you are selling popular products, then the Adsense might just pay for your Adwords campaign, but it is very unlikely. The best combination is a reasonably expert site, with some products or services offered, and also some Adsense blocks.

Some pages on your site could consist of articles with accompanying Adsense blocks, and others of sales pages offering your products or services without the distraction of Adsense. You should not place Adsense on your sales pages or squeeze pages because that will distract visitors to your page, and once they click on the Adsense ad, they will be off. Adsense should ideally have a page to itself, where it doesn’t matter if the prospect leaves or not. By then you should have offered them your opt-in page.

Your niche rarely matters since most niches have a range of high and low prices. What matters is designing a page round each of the keywords you want to use. Once you have a list of keywords - say 20 or thirty plus, then enter each one into it

To find the better Adsense keywords, enter your keyword into the Google KeywordToolExternal and check the Adwords prices the tool provides you with. Do that with each of your keywords and select those that cost most. Your income per click will be related to the cost per click paid by the advertiser. Once you have selected your keywords, then write information pages based on each of the keywords, and optimize each page for the relevant keyword.

It is important that your visitors see a professional looking website, containing useful content and information. Offer some products if you can, and if your visitors do not see anything they want they will have the option of clicking on an Adsense ad. Hence you can make money in two ways. You visitors will prefer it that your site offers more than just a page full of adverts as many Adsense sites do.

Google, however, are slowly working their way through such websites and dropping them from the listings. This will not happen to your site if it provides good content relevant to the keyword of each page. At least this is true unless you are copying content, in which case your web page might never see the light of day. Many web pages are generated automatically by software that can be generating exactly the same pages for other users as it is for you. You should write your own content or have it written for you by a professional ghost writer that will not offer your work to anybody else.

If you follow the above advice, then you will have a better chance of making money from Adsense. However, if you really want to know how to use Google Adsense to make money, then the secret is in duplication.

Earn Money through Google Adsense Revenue Sharing Forums

Dont worry if you don't have website or blog, now you can earn through simply posting in a forum. Interesting!! isn't it?

This is the latest and most successful online money making technique in the market today wherein you neither require a website nor you need to promote affiliate links. You require only Google AdSense publisher code and need to submit content. It's a pure CPC site. The secret is to join AdSense Revenue sharing site and submit content.

Just like this one: -

AdSense revenue sharing means ad revenue from the forum or website can be shared between active members of this forum and the webmaster. It's a Win -Win situation. Just join a forum and create post. The forum uses Google AdSense to automatically serve relevant ads for the content that members create. Google pays AdSense publishers on a per click basis. Google is one of the leading CPC network in the industry and depending on the content and the Location, they pay from 20 cents to several dollars per click.

If a user has an AdSense account, they have the ability to credit their account with the ads served on threads in forum they start or participate in. In this case, 50% of the time, members ads are displayed and 50% of the time, webmasters ads are displayed. If some curious visitor visits the site and happens to click on the Ads served by Google for some information and if it's a genuine click then one gets paid for each and every click.

Is this allowed by Google?

Ans: There are tons of such sites on the internet flourishing since the day AdSense was launched and are still there. Again Google Terms and conditions does not mention anything about the same.

How do I start with the same? If you are not having Google AdSense publisher code then you

need to create such an account (go to to sign up). For publishers having Google AdSense code, its just submitting the details at the time of joining the forum.

There are many forums that become AdSense revenue sharing forums. You can create your Google AdSense account and join to them. Here a few tips to earn money from a revenue sharing forum:

1. Make sure you have enter your Client ID (It should be in the form of pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) in your profile.

2. Enter your Google AdSense Channel ID. It would be a good idea to have a unique channel ID for this forum (then you can track stats specifically for the forum).

3. Create a good new thread with fresh content.

4. Create a powerful title for your thread to get more visitors to view your thread.

5. Be active in the forums because you will get paid for your replies also .

6. Put your site in signature. Perhaps somebody go to your site and click your ads

More tips:

1. The system will never display your own AdSense Client ID to you (as long as you are logged in).This is to prevent people from unknowingly violating the Adsense terms and conditions (specifically the part about clicking your own ads). You do not get more exposure on topics that contain too many replies. It's very logical! -- Since the ads are shared between the topic starter and the repliers, the more the repliers, the less the exposure.

2. If a user has an AdSense account, he has the ability to credit his account with the ads served on threads he start or participate in

Its a great idea to make some money while posting and talking, there is no easy way to earn from internet like this one.

Ten Tips for Search Engine Optimization - Earn Pakistan

A survey was conducted of Media Professionals, and according to that survey 92% of professionals go online to find new content ideas, with 73% specifically researching online articles. So how can you capitalize on that fact? Optimizing the content search engines and correctly posting them on your Web site or blog is one key to generating more traffic. Following are the tips to generate fresh search engine optimized content.

Tip #1: Keyword Research

Keywords can be defined as "a significant word from a title or document used especially as an index to content" Which may sounds pretty straight forward, it can be, but to achieve maximum output from using keywords in SEO, you would need to do some more research to uncover what words other successfull publishers are using when looking for new content's ideas on the Website or blog.

Tip #2 Free Keyword Research Techniques

Explore which keywords are used by successful competitors by going to their Website or blog, click on the "view", and then "source". A new document will pop up with the HTML code for you to check the keywords. Read new articles by relevant publishers, then search the Websites of the sources to read the content.

You can use the above tip to have a look at the HTML code of the Websit or blog for the content and explore which keywords were used. In order to have a close look on their websites or blog you can always use this free tool to analyse their Meta Tags

Tip #3 Most Popular Keyword Research Tool - Not free :-)

You can use Wordtracker, which has a subscription service of $30 for 1 week, $59 for 1 month, $329 for 1 year. But it can really help you choose the right keywords and phrases to make sure that you reach your specific target readers.

Tip# 4: Develop Keyword-Rich Content but dont overdo it
I must stress the point that you just cannot fill your content with keywords and expect it to rapidly appear high in search engine results. You have to think strategically about not only which keywords will be used, but how often and where within the content they are used. Please Note: Copied stuff will not only read horribly by search engines but it can also harm your chances of being shown in search engine results.

Tip #5: Limit SEO to 1-3 keyword phrases per post.
First impression lasts longer, use the most popular keyword in the headline or title, which will carry the most weight with major search engines. You can include a subhead also with a keyword phrase if your post is more than a few paragraphs long. It makes the post easier to read, and search engines give more weight to bold and italic text.

Tip #6: Around 2% of your content must be keywords.
For a 300-words post, only six words can be keywords, so you can keep repeating your keyword or phrase up to three times. Please don't let your combined keywords exceed 1,000 characters. You can use plurals for your keywords, but do avoid excessive repetition. Don't always use obvious keywords. Include phrases that may get fewer searches but higher results.

Tip #7: Focus on optimizing the first 250 words of the post
The first 25 words should be given most importance. You can include anchor text links and write full http://www/ addresses. In your post's call to action, you can insert direct links to separate landing pages set up with further information to aid prospective clients or readers.

Tip # 8: Give Importance on Keywords in META TAGS
Title: It displays the name of the weppage
Description: Description should not contain more than 25 words.
Keywords: Your suggested keywords to the search engines, telling them you would like your website.

Tip #9: Measure and Monitor Results
You will intantly realize that how well your SEO efforts are turning out, based on the traffic you'll receive. It is very important for your short-term and long-term success to measure and monitor your results of SEO.

Tip # 10: Prepare a spreadsheet with the following columns:
Search engine name Keywords Highest ranking results position Impressions Incoming links and pickups Referring traffic Conversions
Once this spreadsheed filled with info with various sources you can use it for measuring and monitoring the results from SEO.

However, there is no single tactic for effective search engine optimization; actual results will come only when using a proper mix of the various tools and techniquese. Finding your blog's proper mix is your real challenge, but also an amazing opportunity to grab the valuable website traffic!

Content, Traffic And More Google Adsense Profits

How to get content using articles grow targeted traffic and get more money with Google AdSense program. Today everybody is talking about good content and how important it is to have one on any site. Good, relevant content is so loved by search engines.

Quality content is a powerful advantage in the Internet.The demand for quality content gave second birth to article. I am sure you already tried to submit or write and submit article(s). Everyone does it now.

My experience shows that nice content and good submission work give you a huge publicity online. With time article pages get bigger and bigger PR and keep sending you extra targeted traffic.

Even if Google, Yahoo, MSN change their rules, will this affect good content? Never. Internet is nothing without good, relevant content and good article is a nice content indeed.This is when it comes really easy to understand that running your own article directory is a very smart thing to do in terms of Internet marketing, SEO.

The BENEFITS of having article directory on your site are great:

- every day your site grows with new relevant content - articles;

- each new page is indexed by search engines, these are the pages with super relevant content, on your keywords, this means with every new article in your directory you score more on your keywords with search engines;

- each article page is a page with quality content, the Page Rank of article page grows with time - just think how many pages with nice PR you will have automatically;

- article directory gives you traffic from search engines, very targeted traffic, people who come to read and find, your site gives them super relevant content (tests on real sites prove that people click 10+ more pages in sites with article directory in comparison to 2-3+ clicks before article directory was created on this site);

- you have no problems with content, it grows itself, fresh articles, on the keywords you need;- you can easily monetize the traffic with Google AdSense, if you have your own products/services in the niche

- direct traffic from article pages to your subscription email or order page - you have the right to do that, it is your site.So, having article directory on your sites is much better than not having article directory.What can stop you from creating article directory for your site now?

#1. You do not have the skills.

- Now everything is easy as programs do all the job. All you need is a professional tool for creating and running your article directory. You just install it on your sites, do setup and the rest is managed by the tool.

#2. Articles can be dangerous. - Yes, they can. If you plan to create directory with 200-1,000 articles in 2 days, search engines may think that you are a spammer. But who says to do so? Grow your directory gradually. 5-10 new articles a day are better than hundreds in a bulk.

Search engines like to see gradual growth of articles in the directory, give them this gradual growth. All you do is picking up or declining articles. Accept about 10 top relevant and interesting articles and the tool generates pages, puts them in the category you choose, creates RSS feed for the pages - everything to get bigger attention from search engines.

Now you see, that the only problem with article directory on the site is the question of balance. When you try to squeeze everything at once, your directory will have the content, but search engines will notice your growth only once.On the other hand, if you are not trying to catch up with wind and care for quality of each article, the gradual growth will show much better results. Still, getting extra 10-20 new quality content pages every day is not a bad thing. Even if Google bosses visit your site every week, they will not say anything: you are not spamming, you are managing your directory, taking care of the quality for your clients and visitors.

Article Directory + Smart Efforts = Content, Traffic & Money

How To Stand A Chance In The Search Engine Optimization Maze - Earn Pakistan

Despite all the other methods available for obtaining a decent web ranking for your website, for instance, link exchanges, search engine optimization or SEO is still regarded as the way to go to ensure that your website is listed high in the search engine rankings.

Search engine optimization is a method of analyzing your site and modifying it to allow search engines to read and index it. Search engine optimization is about building and maintaining a website that will get ranked highly on the major search engines. SEO comprises of a set of techniques used in order to attract visitors or prospective customers to your website, and the aim of a search engine is to provide high quality, relevant content to the users of the Internet. Search engines are now more particular on what they list in their databases and a content relevant site is the requirement if you are to stand any chance of getting ranked successfully.

It's a fact that when surfers conduct a search and the results appear, that they do not generally look further than the first twenty results that are displayed and to make you really miserable, it is widely accepted that the first 10 results is the target to aim for if you want to get customers to your website. You see, people are generally lazy and they will not deliberately look for you; you have to seek them out. So the bottom line is you need to get a top ten position or at the very least be in the top twenty out of potentially thousands of websites that are all trying to achieve the same as you.

It is important therefore, that if you intend to use search engine optimization as one of your arsenal of tools, that you encourage the search engine spiders to not only find your website but also to index it as well and you can do this through the keywords that you use on your website. You need to encourage the search engines to rank your website in that all important high position and for this you need good page content containing your chosen keywords. If you use keywords in your Meta Tags for instance, that do not appear in your page content, then your site could be penalised.

Bear in mind also, that you want the search engine spiders to keep coming back looking for something different on your site to give them a reason to continue to list it. So, ongoing maintenance is important. You simply cannot just submit your website and think that the job's done.

So, having established what is required, how do you go about search engine optimization easily? You will find many websites that provide free SEO tools, or you can pay a professional to take care of it for you. But bear in mind that "professional" also means professional pricing. Also, remember that FREE normally comes with a price tag anyway and you will have to visit numerous sites to use the various SEO tools available and these will be limited in their functionality.

A quality SEO tool that can perform all of the functions required for website optimization will become your time saver when it comes to SEO, especially when you're just starting out and the intricacies of optimizing your website becomes a chore.

So consider an SEO tool that can at least analyze websites of your top-ranking competitors so that you can emulate them by making the relevant changes to your own website. In addition, you will need a keyword generator and a keyword density analyzer tool and search engine and directory submission functions that will allow you to make automatic and semi automatic submissions. Extra functions could include link popularity and pay per click management.

In conclusion, to obtain high search engine rankings, you must optimize your web pages before submitting them to the search engines as it is pointless to submit an un-optimized site. You can do this by visiting numerous sites to use free tools with limited functionality.

Google Page Rank Explained! - Earn Pakistan

There seems to be fair amount of confusion doing the rounds on the Internet with regards to what the Google PageRank is, and what all the fuss is about.

Considering the importance of the Google PageRank, allow me to clarify to the best of my abilities what this is, and why it has become so important.

Google as a search engine considers the Internet to be "democratic state", where votes are cast by websites as to the popularity of other websites. In other words the more votes your website gets from other websites, by way of inbound links to your website, the more important (popular) your website will appear to Google.

Google interprets a link from Website 1 to Website 2 as a vote from Website 1 for Website 2, and so on. This means that the more inbound links you have, the higher your Google PageRank.
More recently Google has increased the variables on its PageRank algorithm to take into account not only the number of in bound links, but the quality of those inbound links.
Several other factors are now also considered when allocating the Google PageRank:
Contextual relevancy of the site linking to you.
PageRank of the site linking to you.
Content context of the site linking to you.
Keyword Relevancy.
Basically the quality of your incoming links matter just as much as the amount of inbound links. Links must come from a websites that are relevant. In other words, these websites should share many of your own keywords.
And that in a nutshell is what the Google PageRank is all about.
Good Luck and Happy Marketing.
