My Top Online Money Making Sites
Sunday / December 1, 2013
Merry Christmas everyone!!! Oooh, how time flies by so fast.
And no, the title doesn't pertain to the fact that it's already December. I'm actually referring to the price of bitcoin. As of post time, the average value of bitcoin has risen to $1200! And it was just 2 months ago when I decided to stop mining bitcoins and donated my 0.30 bitcoin to a site that caters to a charitable works. If I just continued to mine bitcoins, I may have enjoyed the fruits of my labor. Although, I'm still happy that I donated it to charity. Anyhow, my reason for quitting bitcoin 2 months ago was because it's taking painfully slow to earn 1 bitcoin while it was consuming more than 10GB of my hard disk space. So I deleted my bitcoin software.
When I found out that the value of bitcoin has reached the $1000 mark, I realized it's time to go back and mine bitcoins but only through CoinURL which you can see have replaced my Adhitz ads. Also, I'm now going to use an online wallet instead of downloading the software. Wish me luck!
Here's a screenshot of my Rented Referral stats at PTCRS:
I currently have 55 RRs and 8 active ad shares.
Bad news for those who request withdrawals via EgoPay at Digital Generation. There's now a $1.5 fee for every withdrawal transaction you make. So I suggest that you wait until you get a good amount before cashing out using EgoPay. The good news is that you can now request for a withdrawal via Payza and without a fee even. Paxum remains at $1 withdrawal fee.
I'm waiting for a reply to a ticket I sent DG. I was inquiring as to how new members will be given a Founder status for them to be able to cashout without any issues. Once I have a satisfactory answer, I may start promoting the site again.
I'm currently following a 2 repurchase / 1 cashout (net $10) rule with YouGetProfit. This way, I will be able to request a withdrawal without losing my account's momentum in terms of the number of ad shares I have. I now have 6 active ad shares with the oldest still at $9 away from expiration. I had a total of 8 ad shares which goes to say that 2 of them have already expired.
I'll be requesting a cashout in a few days' time. How I wish that the admin adds Rented Referrals' feature to the program but I feel that she's holding it back as a trump card. She'll probably introduced that when the site turns 6 months or so.
Though I haven't cashed out a single $ from AdCycleProfit, from what I've gathered in the forums, the site continues to pay without delay. As for me, I'm simply building my small account up. Let's just say, I'm saving my earnings for the rainy days. My gut tells me that the program will be here to stay.
Paypal has been removed from PTCSolution following the admin's account's limitation. Now that Paypal is taken out of the equation, the admin have reinstated rev shares. For the full message of the admin, you can visit the forum here: http://www.ptcsolution.com/forum.php?topic=10232
To those who are asking me to add them to my safelist including those who are waiting for me to introduce a new program via my old safelist, I'd like to let you know that I no longer use a safelist account. If you want to join me in a program I'm in, just check this blog from time to time. That way, you can get yourself well-informed about how the program works and it's performance before you actually join.

It's just a month before Christmas. And it looks like people are now in a mad rush to save some money for the holidays. Unfortunately, some people will do anything to achieve just that.
Be careful in joining new programs. Scam admins are back in the game. Watch out for the sponsors who couldn't care less whether the programs are owned by scammers as well. They're usually in league with these admins or they just simply don't care who the admins are, so long as they rake in ref commissions.
Here are some programs that I'd advise you to stay away:
- Adrevox - owned by the admin of Trideci and other quick scams.
- MyMoneySurf - who loves to create multiple accounts at MMG and always produce same type of programs.
- Adcumulation - The admins have failed both in StarCityAds and Buku because they padded their programs with a lot of admin positions, hence the reason why they stalled immediately. Loyalists claim that the program is rocking but the number of participants doesn't seem to add up. There's a very very slow growth in terms of new member signups. If you look into their homepage, no one even buys their banner ads.
- Emarketad - Watch out! This seems to be owned by the admin of GlobalAdvertise and 30minutes.biz.
In another note, Keystoneloanadsdivision turned scam a week ago. When I first saw the compensation plan, I knew right there and then that it's not going to last. The comp plan was created to lure big players and screw the smaller ones. But it looks like everybody (except those few who raked in on ref commissions) are below BEP. I'm not sure why the known sponsors and players at MMG were pushing for the program too much when from the start, there's already some debate about the admin's integrity. That reminds me of another program (DailySharePro) where the same "aggressive sponsors / players" of KSLD are now pimping the new one which makes me go "hmm..."
I declare PneNow as a scam in my book. The admin doesn't honor his rules and keep changing them. From the latest update, he decided again to freeze the earnings until December 12 and positions will only earn on a Thursday even at 0.5%. The funny thing is that he's expecting people to participate more. How would anyone in their right minds participate in a program where it's not giving out results? The best way for the admin to redeem himself is to issue refunds or to continue providing the daily % to those who are not yet in profit until the program collapses completely. He needs to lower the minimum withdrawal amount as well. But with the holidays coming, I'm not sure that he's going to do it.
I mentioned the last time that I decided to rent referrals at PTCRS, right? After 7 days of renting 5 referrals (to test it out), it looks like that renting referrals will earn more than buying an ad share. In just a span of 7 days, those refs earned between $0.063 to $0.084. Remember that the price for 1 rented referral is just $0.15. With that in mind, I can be in BEP in just 15 days and from then on it would be pure profit from their clicks. Of course, there's a possibility that their average click rate may go down but if this keeps up, it might be good to rent more referrals which I'll be doing in just a few hours' time. There's a limit though as to the number of rented referrals you can have depending on your membership type. Did I forget to tell you that I'm just a free member and didn't upgrade? Hmm... if I'm an upgraded member, I could even earn 2X the amount I'm getting from my rented refs' clicks. However, as much as I'd like to say that everything's doing well with PTCRS, there seems to be an issue with Payza payments. Some members are having difficulty withdrawing via Payza and keeps getting a messsage "Payment could not be sent, please try again later." The admin / staff posted in the MMG forum that they're working on it though. My suggestion to those who are having trouble withdrawing, you can try to fund your account with another payment processor (if you're willing to risk it) with just $1 and see if you can cashout to that other payment processor. I funded my account with both STP and EgoPay with STP having the bigger amount but I'm able to withdraw via EgoPay just fine and last I checked, I have withdrawn more than the amount I deposited via EgoPay. Some other programs like YouGetProfit, you're only allowed to withdraw up to the same amount for the least processor you used to fund your account while you're allowed to cashout unlimited with your main processor. Anyway, as soon as everything's cleared out with PTCRS, I'll be introducing the program at PHF.
Speaking of YouGetProfit, 2 of my ad shares have already expired. So I'm down to 5 active ad shares again. I'll repurchase one more before requesting for another small payment. How I wish the admin also introduce rented referrals to the program but I have a feeling that she's saving it for later. Basing on the number of ads that can be clicked daily, the program is getting enough players in the field.
I'm thinking of reinstating Digital Generation back in this blog. So far, the program is doing well. To be honest, this is one of the few programs where I've more than tripled the amount I put in. And technically, the amount I put in even came from my earnings from the program. So I didn't really spend a dime here. However, I may have to wait a few more days until there's clear information as to whether or not new members will get a Founder position or if they will be treated as regular members wherein it's difficult to cashout.

Looks like the new program Adcumulation (actually, it's a relaunch) from the same owners of AdSitesGoneWild, CooperativeAchievementPlan, Buku and StarCityAds aren't getting the attention that the admins and their faithful loyalists were hoping for. It's been 6 days since the program launched and the current member count is still at 404. That's the total number of members and doesn't necessarily mean that all of them are active even. No wonder the loyalists are almost pleading in the Adcumulation thread at MMG to try and coax readers to join the program.
I guess the admins' failures with Buku and StarCityAds are hounding them still that even their previous members aren't too keen to join their newest program. Well at least they decided not to perform 'randomization' this time around. It's unclear though as to whether or not they preloaded the cyclers again this time around.
Be careful with MyMoneySurf. This is owned by the admin of DirectAdShare and/or CanadianSurf. I know we're all playing a game but I don't think it's wise for us to join programs owned by scammers nor should we let them have another chance to scam more people.
I decided to rent referrals at PTCRS to see how it goes. Will it be lucrative to do so or would it still be better for me to stick with just the rev share part of the program? We shall see the results in a few days. Anyway, I only rented 5 refs which cost me $0.75 only. That's actually the cheapest rented referrals I've ever come across with. I wonder if YouGetProfit will add this feature soon?
Speaking of YouGetProfit, I failed to inform you in my yesterday's post, that there was a spike on the average daily rate last week. It even went up to as high as 3.03%. Let's see what the results will be this week. I'm waiting for someone to post the daily averages at the YGP thread in MMG.
I'm dilly-dallying as to whether or not to remove PTCSolution from the list of programs I promote. The reason for that is because the admin temporarily stopped the selling of new rev shares after their Paypal account got frozen. Currently, the admin is using another Paypal account to pay his members but with a strict limitation to avoid getting the 2nd account frozen as well. They're still waiting for a resolution from Paypal regarding their main account. In one of the statements of the admin, should they decide to continue with the revshare program, they will no longer allow the use of Paypal for purchasing rev shares or withdrawals for the same.
Anyway, I haven't been able to buy a rev share yet from this site. I've been renting referrals though using my account balance. I was hoping to use that to buy rev shares which may not happen if they don't reinstate the revshare program. The main reason why I joined PTCSolution in the first place was due to their rev share program. I'll give it about a week before deciding to remove the banner for the said program.
I was asked to become a moderator for PHF but I declined. I can't barely keep up with the maintenance of this blog, so an added responsibility is a NO NO at the moment. Anyway, I'd like to say thanks to Colaro for the offer. Maybe next time. ;)

I just had an interesting conversation today with someone. I was asked why I'm not capitalizing on my experience. In other words, why am I not an aggressive promoter like the rest who have been in this so-called "industry". This is not the first time though that I was asked that same question but here's my usual answer:
I'm a blogger before I'm a promoter. Being a blogger, I want to be able to speak my mind freely. When you are an aggressive promoter, you tend to be biased on how you discuss programs because you're mostly after ref commissions. I don't want to drop names but there are a lot of sponsors that have blogs out there that promote programs that are already "dead in the water" but still keep promoting them just because they don't want to lose their kickbacks or that they're afraid that the admins will suspend their accounts which means cutting off their earnings.
In lieu of what I posted above, I want to let you know that only interact via this blog and the email address shown in the right column under the section "The Blogger". I had a safelist but no longer wish to use it. So for those folks who are waiting for me to give them an alert via that safelist, I just want to let you know that you won't be receiving an email from me any longer. The last time I used it was sometime September. If you wish to know what programs I'm playing on, you might want to check this space from time to time instead. :)
Digital Generation just recently had its version of a Restart through it's "Stocks" option. Although it's not really mandatory to switch your current account to Founder which converts your current balance (including threads) to Stocks, many members opted (or will opt to change) because it's difficult to request payment with the current account type anyway. So what's the good and the bad?
- It's easy to request a cashout if you have a Founder status. Priority is given to them. If you check the Gateway Status, you'll find that both Paxum and EgoPay are always green for Founders. The regular accounts will have to wait for Paxum2 and EgoPay2 to turn green before they can cashout which rarely happens.
- There's no max cashout limit you can request at the moment.
- A stock is currently valued at $13.15 but will only earn at $0.01 daily. When I clicked the button to upgrade to a Founder account, a stock costs $10 at that time. I got 57 stocks which gives me a daily dividend of $0.57. They also leave me a single thread.
- You will earn from your stocks daily without any expiration update (until they close the site of course or change their rules).
- There's no need to run the Thread manager to earn from your stocks.
- I guess the main complaint is the low earnings from stocks on a daily basis. I've read some people who had a good number of threads who are now down to a single thread and earning only a small amount daily from their stocks as compared to what they get from their threads previously.
- A thread earns $1 daily but they have made it clear that you have to run the Thread Manager for a full 24 hours in order to do so as compared before wherein it was "supposed" to be based on the processing power you provide them.
I'll probably request a cashout tomorrow to test their withdrawal system. Unfortunately, I won't be able to request a big amount any longer since my Cash Balance has been wiped out due to the upgrade to Founder. It looks like my remaining active refs have their threads down to 1-3 as well.
Yep, this is my strategy for both YouGetProfit and PTCRS at the moment. Well at least until I get to 10 active ad shares with PTCRS and 7-8 with YGP. As for ACP, I only have 2 Profiters and 2 Cyclers, so I'm just building my account in that program. I only put in about $25 anyway.

My country was just devastated by the strongest typhoon known to mankind. My prayers go to my fellow Filipinos who have to endure the onslaught of Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan).
Those who wish to send their donations, you may route it through the following:
Philippine Red Cross - http://www.redcross.org.ph/donatenow
World Vision - https://www.wfp.org/donate/typhoon-philippines
ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya - http://www.abs-cbnfoundation.com/sk/donate.html
GMA Network Kapuso Foundation - http://www.gmanetwork.com/kapusofoundation
The PneNow admin needs to get his act together. I'm not sure how suspending the earnings until November 18 and limiting it to 0.5% for Mondays and Fridays only will get people to join the program or for existing members to purchase new positions. Comparing PneNow to programs like YouGetProfit and PTCRS that are giving out 2% daily returns and are able to offer instant payments (upgraded members only for YGP), who in their right minds will join PneNow? Beats me.
I finally received the email from PTCRS admin (which was being sent to members) regarding the bonuses you will receive when you post payment proofs at the PTCRS thread in MMG. Here's the message:
As you are aware we have a thread on MMG forum which is the biggest forum for online revenue.
Please support us by putting your payment proof in this topic:
This is completely optional and members who post their Payment Proofs on the above thread, will be given $0.15 main balance, 1,000 ptc credit + 5,000 banner credit + 5,000 Featured Ads credit(for each payment proof).
For getting your bonus, please send us a support ticket and indicate your MMG username.
Please note that we only accept posting on the above thread, no other threads are eligible for the Bonus.
Thank you allI submitted a ticket informing them that I've been posting payment proofs in the said thread and I was rewarded the said bonuses. Take note, you get the bonuses for EACH payment proof you post.

I just bought another ad share at YouGetProfit. That goes to say that I now have 5 active ad shares with the program. The oldest ad pack I purchased (September 21) already earned $23.9460.
I haven't had luck in days with Digital Generation. I haven't seen any of the payment processors turn Green. Their latest update looks promising but then I'll believe it when I see it.
Monday / November 4, 2013
I have just received a few invitations to join new programs but I decided not to. For starters, I don't have extra funds to join another one and if I did, I still wouldn't due to the fact that I wanted to keep my list short.
I've mentioned this before, I don't play with my pocket money. At least, not anymore. The last time that I used my credit card to fund my account with a program (JBP) was way back on March (or April) 2011. Ever since then, I'm just playing with my profits and earnings from programs that I'm on to fund new ones.
So I just want to say to those who are inviting (others are spamming) me that I won't be joining any of the programs you're selling not unless you're going to PIF me into it. lol! Diversification is good but having too many programs at once dilutes your funds as well. And if you're going to play with a small amount, it's best to just split it into 2 or 3 programs only.
I'll be requesting for another cashout from YouGetProfit tomorrow but since my account is downgraded to Free after my Silver membership (the promo one) has expired, my payment won't be instant. I'll keep you posted though when I receive it.
I was able to verify my Paxum account. Now I have the ability to get whatever amount in my Paxum account to my bank account. I'll probably use an exchanger though. I just hope that Digital Generation increases my max daily withdrawal limit, so I can cashout more. My balance from the program is even getting bigger since my combined daily earnings and ref commissions are more than $5. I now have $400 in my Digital Generation account.
I have almost totally forgotten about AdCycleProfit. The earnings maybe slow but from the ACP thread in the MMG forum, the admin/s are still paying normally. To be honest, I only have 1 Profiter from the program and 2 Cyclers. They still have a long way before they expire. I'm planning to purchase additional Profiters though as soon as I've reached my goals for YGP and PTCRS or when I receive my next payment from PneNow.
Speaking of PneNow... I'd say the program is on a catch-22 at the moment. The membership base isn't growing at the speed where the admin wants it to be. How could it when the admin wouldn't follow the rules he has set. He sent an update before that starting November 5, all positions will start earning 2% again but then, he seemed to have backed out of that plan and it looks like everything will depend now on when the program will have it's 2000th member.
With the program's current state, it would be difficult to achieve that 2000-member goal since most of the sponsors won't be promoting the program at all.
