Any of those "get paid to surf" things worth it?

    I'm on the Internet a lot, like most people here probably. I figure why not make some extra dough doing it? I've heard of companies that pay you to surf the web and did some Googling and found a few but who to trust?

    I was wondering if anyone's had experience with this?

    There are a couple of companies you can work with, I like Butler Hill they pay you to rate websites.

    paid to surf? I think the concept is you have to buy tiers etc etc. You will not make money.

    I would not waste my time making 3 cents a day...and maybe instead, use the information on this site and make a lot more.

    Just looked at Butler Hill and I don't think that's what the OP is looking for. Butler hill seems more high end and not a typical paid to surf.

    What OP is looking for is PTC sites where you click a site and earn a cent for it. Those aren't worth your time, start looking for other methods on BHW and forget PTC scams.

    Infinitearticles, can you tell me more about Butler Hill? How you got "hired", what it's like to work for them, etc?

    Thanks a bunch.

    I'm probs not allowed to post the link, but there is a paid to click site where you get paid 100% of what your affiliates make. (You can probably find it with a google search and a bit of research). Then you can publish a bunch of torrents about how to make money online and insert your affiliate link. This is how I have/would monetize these sites. Sitting and clicking for hours on end for 15 cents is demoralizing and dehumanizing. Whereas you can get people in third world countries who actually might be able to do something with a few bucks a day, and you get a bunch of people doing that, you can make some monies. Overall though, when you compare the opportunity cost of persuing something like this over CPA or Clickbank, it really is a waste of time.

    Just my 2 cents. :)
