    Hi guys, I'd like to talk with you about microworkers. It seems a waste of time, but i managed to get at least 9$ to request a payout. The only thing is, it requires time and I think it's not worth the time. I can do signup, mail offers, fb, google etc in less time, using fake info too, but i don't think is good to use fake info. I see many workers and advertisers use fake info on microworkers too.
    Is there a possibility to make some money as advertiser on microworkers?

    Microworkers is useless even if you have PR1+ blogs or websites. The rates are very small and there aren't many jobs available.

    I've made 13$ few years ago :) and yes it is perfectly OKay to use fake info for those offers because most of them are created by spammers.

    Yeah! Just use fake names and let the cents roll on your account :) Seriously, you should find another job. Microworkers has a good concept but it needs to be changed.

    Ok, I've closed the microworkers account then, it's just a waste of time, it's only useful for your SEO works if you need workers.

    It's ok if you need a little start up money, but it takes a long time to earn enough money to cash out. The main problem I had with microworkers is that I never had the money when I needed it. It usually took a week just to get credited for my work, and when I finally had enough money in my account to cash out, it would take another 3 days to show up in my PayPal account. But microworkers can be worth your time if you use it to get referrals or traffic to a website or store. If you have a little bit of money to spend on microworkers, you could potentially make a lot more. I once made an easy $20 by paying people $.10 to sign up under my referral link, and I got $.50 for every sign up. You do have to pay a small fee to microworkers, but it's still a n easy way to get referrals.

    I cant really say that Microworkers is a waste of time considering that you canoffer some automated services that cost you no time... Just make sure it is quality work

    You're looking at this backwards.

    When you see a site like microworkers, you should be asking how you can make money off it as an employer/outsourcer.

    So true. Microworkers can be a great source for cheap traffic. I've seen people pay $1 to have you post their links into high traffic blogs and websites. You have to have a minimum of 30 people do your task. Imagine if you paid out $30 plus microworkers fee to have 30 people promote your website or business on 30 blogs or websites that get 10,000 plus unique visitors per day. That's a lot of traffic for $30.

    You're better off turning the tables and using microworkers to make money for you. I would not want to be on that end of the stick, doing work for pennies. You need to be creative, but if you're on the right site, you can use microworkers to make you money.

    For me Microworkers is not a waste of time. If you are willing to work 2 hours a day you can earn a good amount of pocket money. Like every business online, in the beginning earning is going slow but if you have enough patience your work will be paid. There are many jobs to do, some of them are paid less and some more. If you want to earn more, you have to have blog or site with a good PR rating. I ve been working for two months now, and I earned 30 dollars. It is not much but I didnt put much effort in doing jobs. I think if i work every day I will be earning more than 50 dollars a month. Good luck to everyone who are working on microworkers and I hope we will be successful

    I don't know about everything you can do there,but if you are going to do tasks+you are going to do these tasks only from one account than it is waste of time.There are better methods here but you don't do blackhat
