Another week another overview.

Another week has passed and it is time for an update on my earnings. First though I would like to share that I got lucky in the treasure hunt in Dungeons and Treasures this morning and earned an astounding 10000 gold. Those that has followed my blog from the beginning will know that, that is more than I had in total at the last gold conversion.

Anyways, here are my current earnings:

Surveyhead: 7.85$
Clixsense : 4.74$
Neobux: 0.355$
Dungeons and Treasures: 363 982 gold. (This is currently processing for conversion.)
Mysurvey: 105 points (115 points is 1€)
Global Test Marked: 70 points (1000 points is 50$)

All in all 12.945$ and then some. :)

As you can see not that much improvement from last week. So far it looks like the surveys are what earns the most, so I might see if I can't sign up for some more of those.

Otherwise it looks like I will need to get into the whole referral business for real. I am currently checking out the options on getting more referrals.

Dungeons and Treasures - Basic how to earn money playing the game.

Time to go a bit more into my current favourite "paid to" scheme.

I have mentioned before that this is kind of an oldschool dungeon crawler, but the game is a bit broader than this.

When you first start out the game you are giving 500 gold. Make sure you spend it on a decent sword. There is a player marked and you can usually find a "Solid Sword" for a reasonable amount. If you are lucky you will also be able to afford a "Potion of Learning" on the first day. The trick to making a lot of gold from the page seems to be to level up as fast as possible because your character level affects the dungeon level. The higher the dungeon level the more gold you can make. If you have a look at the screen shot below you will see exactly what I mean. (note the gold earned does not include gains from chest keys or items that you sell).

As you can see I didn't make it past 50 so far and as I only have one day left of the the month, before the levels are reset I don't believe I will. It is however my goal for next month to get as high level as possible so I will be investing my gold in "Potion of Learning +2" as soon as I have the gold for it.

Aside from dungeon crawling I have a few daily routines on the site that I would recommend taking up:

The Temple:
Make sure you visit the temple every day and pray as you can get lucky and win gold doing this. Here is a list of my last 10 visits.

10/22/2011 18:13 Nothing
10/21/2011 02:52 Nothing

The Treasure Hunt:

Every day you can get one free ticket to the treasure hunt. Once you have claimed it go to the map and click any spot that is not yet blacked out. You usually get something, either a bit of gold or a key for the chest room. It seems you can also win real money as the Jackpot, but I have yet to be that lucky.

The Contest Clicks:
This is a bit more time consuming. The game runs contests over a period of time. (Current one is from 22th of october to 2nd of november). Whenever you refresh the page, there is a chance of a small icon spawning and flashing somehwere on the site.

If you click it a small window will open telling you how many tickets you have won. You can then go to the contest clicks page and scratch your tickets.

Each one will give you a number of Esteem points. By the end of the competition you will be rewarded gold or even star points based on your rank. Star points are really nifty because they can be used to purchase more dungeons. The contest click competition is one of the only ways to obtain star points without having to spend real money.

That was a basic rundown of the game. I might be looking into other details at a later date and maybe add some more advice on how to maximise your earning potential, once I have a better idea of this myself! :)

As a side note I am currently sitting on 338112 gold and I can't wait to see what that will be converted to in a couple of days.

I just had to share this! I was looking around for other options to add to my current list and I came across a site that revealed the official acronym for what I have until now referred to "Click and get paid" amongst other things.

GPT = Get Paid to.

I will totally be using this from now on as it nicely covers everything on my list so far! :)

Questions, many questions!

I am getting a bit impatient, the "money" is ticking in much slower than I was hoping and I am starting to realize that I might be sitting here still clicking next year at this time.

So! Time to branch out some more. I mentioned earlier that I've signed up for a couple of "Paid Survey" sites. So far most of them has been a disappointment, in the sense that they haven't actively offered me surveys. I do however seem to have some luck with It offers a 4$ start up bonus and it gives you credit for filling out surveys about yourself. Futhermore it seems to be sending out surveys every week. So far I have only managed to qualify for one which paid 1.25$, which was quite reasonable since the survey was only 10 minutes long. I received a mail about one that would have paid 5$ earlier today, however sadly I didn't fit the demographic. :(

Payout Treshold is 25$ so with my current 6.6$ there is still a way to go, however at least I feel like I earn a relevant amount of money considering the time I spend.

Anyways, here is a rundown of the current earnings from my different venues:

Clixsense : 4.52$
Neobux: 0.253$
Dungeons and Treasures : 0.021$ 252576 gold pending conversion (24930 of which my mother has earned for me <3 )
Mysurvey: 25 points (115 points is 1€)

So as you can see combined I have reached 11.394$ which is approximately 8.2€. Still a looooong way until I can redeem from any of the sites and actually say that I earned something.
I don't intend on giving up though. I will keep looking for new options and hopefully I will have cashed in before October next year! ;)

Sponsor Bonus

As I have visitors from home this week I might not have time to update the blog until monday, so figured I would write a few words tonight.

I logged in to a really nice surprise in Dungeons and Treasures yesterday. A message was waiting for me stating: "You've earned 23000 gold in the Top Sponsorship finishing at position 18th pretty neat bonus since it was approximately a 5th of what I had earned so far. Meanwhile my mother has now earned me 11.341 gold and my total gold is 174786 for the month to far. Will be pretty cool to see how much that is after the conversion to $. I don't have my hopes up too high, but maybe I will be able to make close to a dollar this month. :P

I never mentioned that I also signed up for another "click to get paid" website. This one is called Neobux. I wanted to check if it might be better than Clixsense, but so far it seems much slower (if that is even possible). There is no lottery and it looks like all adds rewards the same 0.001$ I signed up on the 7th of october and I have only managed 0.170$ so far. On the bright side, they apparently offer minimum payout of 2$ so maybe the site can help me get to my goal in combination with one of the others. However with this speed it will take me approximately 117 days to get to 2$ and that is without missing a single day of clicking. Soooo.... :)

Okay so I have 2 things to share.

The first thing is a piece of really great news.
Last wednesday I won in the Clixgrid game and this time it wasn't just 0.25$, no I won 2.50$ a sum that you could actually buy stuff for. It is 2 and a half liter of milk, 6 apples or a return bus ticket.

The win more than doubled my current earnings on the site and I now have 4.24$, this of course is still a long way from anything I can actually get cashed out, but I still feel I am much closer to the goal. Yay me!

The second thing I want to talk about is something I briefly touched upon in a previous blogpost. I have been looking around for alternative method of making money on the internet and one of the things I came across was Dungeons and Treasures.
Now this may sound a bit weird to most sane people, but I actually really enjoy this game. Here is a small breakdown.

The game is an oldschool dungeon crawler a little like a very simplified version of Eye of The Beholder, without the story part. You have a character that can gain levels and get better equipment. Each day you can visit the tavern and get access to a dungeon. In the dungeon you will find items and gold on the floor which you can pick up and you will of course have to fight monsters to level up and to be able to explore the entire dungeon.

Yeah, yeah you are probably thinking, but what about the money? Well remember the gold I mentioned? Each month your gold is converted to real money and once you have enough you can cash out. Sounds pretty awesome right?

Well before you go crazy there are a few things to mention. Whenever a monster damages you, you get 1 wound. When you reach 6 wounds you loose a life. You only have 3 lives per day. Furthermore you can only get one dungeon per day, so once you are done exploring that you have to wait for the next day to get a new one and continue earning money. Lastly the conversion of gold to real money is of course not very high so you have to earn a good deal of gold to get enough to cash out, however personally I am having fun playing! :)

Last month I only go to play a tiny bit which meant I only had around 8k at the time of conversion. That has left me with 0.021$

Dungeons and Treasures is advertising that you get some benefits from referring people and I really wanted to try out whether that was true or not so I asked my mom if she would help me out. As she is awesome, she of course said yes immediately and signed up with me as her Godfather (heh). At the moment it seems that I am getting 30% of her earned gold added to my stack which is actually pretty cool. So far she has earned me about 7k in 3-4 days. I am still curious to see if this page will actually cash out once I reach 10$, but so far I have gotten what it says on the tin.

One funny little thing about the game is that it was originally french and the translations on the page is sometimes pretty funny, but if the site is actually going to pay me for something I find entertainment I am not going to complain about it.

Feel free to sign up using the referral link and help me check if the site actually pays. (or don't use the referral link, I wont be angry I promise. Just slightly disappointed :P )

On a final note. Yes my mom plays video games and yes she is pretty frigging amazing! :)

Quick update regarding "earnings"

Just a quick update on my current earnings. Below is a list of money, I will go more indept with which sites and such later when I have more time! :)

0.021 $
0.076 $
1.658 $
6.60 $

In total almost 10 $. No payouts available from any of them for quite some time yet though :(

Friday, 7 October 2011

More I need more!!!

So after celebrating my initial "success" with Clixsense (1.5$ and growing!) I sobered a bit. The page wont do payouts until I have collected 10$. With my current speed of earnings that means another 8 months or so before I see any actual real cash. That is not good enough, so I have set out to find other ways to make my 10€. I am going to race the cash out at Clixsense with other alternatives. Today I signed up for Neobux. So far I have managed to click myself to 0.015$. The site however promises payout at 2$, which hopefully means it wont be too long before I see the cash rolling in. Furthermore I signed up for multiple "get paid to for taking surveys" schemes and a single "play and get paid" site. The clever business woman branches out.. ;) 
I will keep you up to date!

And we are off!

Okay so as mentioned I started this "project" approximately a month ago and I didn't start writing the blog until today. That means I owe you guys about a month worth of updates. offers 2 types of clicks. 1 is the standard, click the advert for a sum of money. The second is sort of a lottery they call ClixGrid.

The first option provides a number of links to be clicked. Most of these offer 0.001$ per click. Yes that is right a 100th of a cent. If you are really lucky you will get one worth 0.005$ or 0.01$. The sites advertises that you can get up to 0.02$ per click, however as far as I am aware I have yet to see one of those crazy earning opportunities. Each click opens a new page with the advert in and 5 pictures in the top. You have to match two of the pictures in order for your click to count. This is an effort to ensure only real human beings are earning the astounding sums that are up for grabs.

You also have to have the page open (and as your main window on the computer) for a set amount of time before the credit is added to your account. The time varies depending on the sum and stretches from 3 seconds to 30 seconds.

The ClixGrid is a lottery. You pick a square on the board, it opens a new window to an advert, which you have to have open for 10 second before it shows you whether you won or not. You have 25 attempts per day and you can win up to 5$. Insane sums I know! So far I have actually won twice. 1 win of 0.01$ and 1 of the breathtaking amount of 0.025. To date I have done 813 clicks. That corresponds to 0.00.003$ per click. As I have spent 135.5 minutes or 2 hour and 15 minutes on this it mean the ClixGrid game sports an astounding 0.015$ an hour. Minimum wages says hello. ;)

Anyways I know everyone is waiting for the current running total so here we go since I started 29th of august I have earned: 1.43$ or 1.07 €. So there you have it. One tenth of the way to the goal!

Below is a screenshot of the daily gains for the last 30 days: 

It all starts...

Approximately 1 month ago I was browsing away on the Internet and stumbled across and advertisement stating it paid good money for clicking links. I am quite the realist, when it comes to Internet promises so I didn't for a second consider signing up. As the old saying goes. If it is too good to be true, it probably is.

I didn't think more about it until later that day when I was going for a shopping trip. Walking to town takes about 20 minutes from my apartment and it is a perfect time to let your mind wander and allow the brain to play around with crazy ideas.

As I was walking, I started guesstimating how long it would take in order to earn anything close to substantiel from one of those sites and I realized I had not real idea of what to consider as basic gains.

The more I thought about this, the more curious I became and I decided that I was going to sign up for one of the pages just to find out, how ridicolously long it would take to make any real money from clicking links.

First I needed to decide what "real" money is. I chose 10€ as the sum to aim for, as that is what 1 training session for Capoeira costs and it would be cool to pay that with money earned by doing "nothing".

Next I sat down and reviewed "click and get paid" pages. I quickly learned that a lot of the pages out there are scams, where you have to pay for membership in order to get any payouts. Furthermore a lot of the pages do not hand out cash, but rather make you click for gifts or sweepstakes.

I tried to look for statements from multiple sources that confirmed payouts and I finally settled on as it seemed to be genuine.

I signed up and started clicking adds straight away... I had started down the road to easy riches!

(Just as a sidenote. I realize this is an absolutely pointless endeavour, however I am really curious to see exactly how long it will take me to get to 10€).

I am going to try for weekly updates on how the earnings are going, so you can follow my trip down the goldplated road of "click and get paid" clicking.

(By the way, I take no responsibility for the pages linked in this blog. I do not know if they are malicious scam pages or friendly money making opportunities. Personally I made sure to come up with a completely new password, which I never use for anything else. It is probably also a good idea to create a new email to use on pages like this.) 

Below is a screen shot of one of those sites I decided against joining... Something told me it wasn't 100% genuine ;)
