Top 10 sites to make money online

Many people ask me, how to earn some buck online? Is it really possible to earn money online? Yes, definitely it is possible to earn money online. Earning money online is definitely not easy, but it is possible to a great extent. I would like to share the top 10 money making sites to explore.

1. Google Adsense -
This site is always holds the first rank, because it is sponsored by the Internet gaint Google Inc. Adsense is the division of google.
How to earn on Adsense: Create a website, draw traffic to your site, place the Ads from Google Adsense on your website, and you are done. When someone clicks on your Adsense Ads, you get some commission for it. The commission ranges from 10cents to $15+. Withdraw the earnings when you reach $100.

2. Amazon  Mechanical Turk (MTurk) -

Amazon Mechanical Turk is an innovative approach to use the human intelligence to perform certain tasks which a computer can't perform. Once you register for MTurk, you are listed with the jobs in your available HITs. HITs stand for Human Intelligence Tasks. Some tasks may require expert skills whereas others require very little technical knowledge. The tasks pay from 1 cents to 4dollars or more. The earnings can be redeemed as Amazon gift certificates. If you are from India, you can redeem your earnings as a Cheque.

3. Microworkers -
Microworkers, a similar concept to that of Amazon MTurk. But, in Microworkers, the jobs listed are little and it is based on the region you come from. Still, there are good jobs with good incentives. The best part is you get a joining bonus of $1 when you sign up. The minimum payout is $9. Upon keeping the first withdrawal request, a verification PIN is sent to your home address. After keying in the verification PIN, you can withdraw the money to your Alertpay or Moneybookers account.


4. About.com -
If you are a good article writer, I would suggest you to go with the famous about.com. This site pays like your offline salary, which ranges from $500 to $9000. It is always wise to try your article and content writing skills on about.com. Find more about About.com from them. Quality speaks here.

5. Associated Content from Yahoo -
Again, if you are good in writing stories, articles, how to guides and other related stuffs..you can always try using Associated Content from Yahoo. If your submission was good, you may be paid somewhere around $3 to $20 per article. As it is from Yahoo, you need not worry about whether it would be fake. There are so many of my friends who are making money writing for Associated Content.


6. Payperpost - 
This is an innovative approach to the bloggers who have their own blogs on niche topics. Sign up for payperpost, negotiate with the advertisiers and publish post in your blog which the advertisiers asking you to. You are ready to make money for every word you post. Check out the complete detail on payperpost. Check how payperpost works. After you earn $50, you can en-cash it to your Paypal.
Remember that they only accept blogs, not websites, forums or discussion boards.

7. Toluna -
Toluna is a survey site, which pays in points for every survey you become eligible. The points are then converted into either cash or gift certificates based on your location. If you are from US, then you can cash them out. Don't worry about the surveys, you will get plenty of them and you keep qualifying for them. I've already earned $30 from this site. I feel, this is the best site for surveys out there. There may be many other similar sites, but they take longer time to earn than this one.

8. Squidoo -
 This is again a article writing site, but a good one. There is no test, eligibility or anything like you are denied for your posts there. All your submissions are welcome on Squidoo. They call the articles as lens. So you are going to create lens(good ones) on Squidoo. The earning algorithm on Squidoo is complex, but there are people on Squidoo who get paid heavily. They share their ad revenue from your post. The better the post, the better is the chance of earning. You can write articles on any topic on Squidoo. Never worry about the traffic, they have hell a lot of traffic on their site. If you article is good, it will definitely be noticed.


9. Depositfiles.com -
Many people don't know that they can make money by sharing their files with others. Depositfiles is one of them where you can earn money just by sharing your files. If you have a niche blog, write an e-book and share them on depositfiles, for every 1000 unique downloads. The money you earn depends on the size of the file uploaded. They have bonus program as well, where you get paid for your referral download earnings. Before you go on, check their FAQ page.

10. Shutterstock -
Are you a photographer? Do you love photography. There is an opportunity for you. Earn money by joining Shutterstock, upload your photographic creations, so when someone downloads your photos, shutterstock pays you for that. They pay somewhere from $0.25 to $28 per image download. That is an awesome amount. Have a peak..
