What is behind the wave?
Few pioneers of these websites that offer to gain advertisement credits as well as cash for surfing have occurred in 2003. It seems that most of this kind of venture has started 2005 and that the boom has begun flourishing during the recent months.
These websites offer to earn between about 1% to 20% earnings daily. The members can pay a membership fee and earn such percentages on their fees. A membership cycle can last between seven and 365 days. It depends on the website offer.
Most of the banks or bonds offer yearly interests between about 1% to 15% yearly on deposits or bonds. It depends on the currency and country. How can a website offer hundreds or even thousands of percents yearly? They claim to make money with people who pay for advertisements. They tell that they invest in currency trading or commodity trading. Some of the websites run an online shopping mall or an online casino. They deny to pay these percentages to their members from freshly acquired membership fees.
Some of the websites seem to sustain and they pay out their members reliably, some are scam and disappear after a while. High yield means also high risks.
What is possible?
It seems to be possible to make money as long as the party goes on. It seems to be still in an early stage and people can generate an extra income as long as they act in a deliberate way. This means to limit the expenses on membership fees and to diversify these kind of activities on different websites. Never put all your eggs in one basket! It’s recommendable to surf on these websites for a while by running a free account and observing matters before a membership fee is paid. It is not necessary to have an own websites in order to make cash for surfing.
There are better means to gain traffic for a website than have it rotated as ads on these websites. The best way to gain traffic for a website is by achieving a high Page Rank by using search engine optimization or by writing and submitting articles.
It is possible to make some quick money without real work by surfing on these websites that offer percentages on membership fees. There is no warranty of earnings.
Generating valuable and sustainable traffic for a website, however, means acquiring some skills and working in a dedicated way.
