An honest autosurfer

Today I will write about yet another site that allows earning money online. The service is called eBesucher, a site of a German company. As always, don’t think this service (or any other for that matter) will make you rich overnight, but if you have a computer that is always on, and have some spare resources, it does not hurt to use it to earn some money.

I can almost hear the roar, no, this service has nothing to do with cryptomining. It’s about advertising. This service provides a surfbar that will automatically surf the Internet, and visit sites that pay for it – and in turn you get paid for running the surfbar.

Besides the surfbar, you can choose to receive advertising mail, but you don’t need to get it delivered to your actual mailbox: you can get and read them on the website. You can also surf sites manually which (mostly) yield more points than autosurf.

If you are on the other side, and looking for a service where you can advertise your site, you don’t need to go any further, they got you covered.

I have already received my first payment, and the next should arrive in the following days. Some countries are better paid than other, but that’s life, there are more advertisers that target Germany of France than some small country where viewers are less likely to buy their products from over the globe.

I have to say I am not just satisfied, but also a bit surprised that this service is actually what it says, a rare quality many sites should take example of. The sites displayed while surfing are filtered, you don’t need to worry about sites that crash your browser/machine or use it to mine cryptocurrency. From time to time some framebreakers appear, but those are hunted, and you even get a bonus if you happen to find one that break the surfbar’s flow, and report it.

To sum up, I can only recommend to anyone. I already have some months of experience with the service, so if you got any questions, feel free to add them in the comments section below.

Advertising in the mail and traffic exchange

A market of advertisements

There are many PTC sites out there, and today, I’ll write about yet another one. I have registered a while back, and can not confirm at the moment if it really pays, but public reviews paint it as a well established one.

It is called adzbazar.com. I would count as an upside the many ways you can earn credit, and also many ways to advertise your own site.

For example, apart from allowing access to many offerwalls, you can do PTP (Payed To Promote). What is that? Here is an example. If you click on this link, it will take you to one of the site’s advertisement, and my balance will rise a bit, because you followed the link.

Once again, these sites are not about making you rich, but you can click on their ads here and there, and you may earn a few dollars here and there. I think it’s nice to have a (small) income online, enabling one to buy minor stuff without the need to transfer hard-earned money from a bank account. On the other hand, this way of clicking ads isn’t easy nor fast way. One have to decide how much hes or her free time worth. Anyway, if you are interested, check it out.

Only one link away

The concept described below was hard to understand first. You may or may not head of link shorteners. Let me assure you, they exist. “Okay”, you could say, “but what are they?”. Now that is a really good question.

I’ve heard of such service a long time ago, but newer gave it a lookup, until I managed to land on such site while wandering around the cyberspace. Until then, I thought this could be some sort of security thing (hiding the site’s real URL maybe?), or called alive by convenience – a machine-generated URL to a resource can be quite long, unreadable by humans, not to remember it, so it would seem logical to shorten it, the shorter link will point to the hard-to-remember-one, and will be easy to keep in mind.

The shortener site I first stumbled upon told something that did not fit into the above theories – shorten your links and earn money. Earn money? Following the above assumptions, I should pay money for using the shortening service. But this seems not to be the case.

A link shortener will generate a link from the target link you (as the user of the service) provide, and you can publish this new link as you please. The link will indeed bring the user clicking on it to the target link eventually, with a bit of ads here, some redirects there, maybe some popup windows along the way… Now this makes sense, while spreading the shortened URL you provide audience to the shortening service, and the ads they insert along the road, which they get paid for – so they will give you a part of that payment to provide more visitors trough their service. Divide and conquer, as it is often said.

To show the idea of how it works, I’ll provide a shortened link here. You can try the service by clicking on it, and follow the path the service provider given, until you reach the destination links. At the time of this writing, this should include a Captcha, 6 minutes of waiting, and a popup-window maybe, but these steps vary by time. Where is the destination of the link? As this is a demonstration, it will lead back to this article, the next paragraph, to be exact.

I guess not many people like distraction when they know what they want to find, and not landing on the site I wanted to go to surely feels I am delayed (like AD minutes in the middle of an exciting movie), but looked from a bit higher, it is an interesting way of adding some advertising content to a site, maybe before the visitors reaching it. Apart from this demo, if you find a link on my blog that seems like a shortened link, that will surely lead to an Easter Egg of some sort 😉

Solving captchas

Today I’ll write about yet another site that offers online work. Most such sites involved in advertising, but this site, kolotibablo.com offers money for captcha solving.

For those who do not know what a captcha is: mostly a picture that you as a user must interact, and it is intended to tell if you are a real human, not an automated program that surfs the Internet. To achieve this, captchas may show grotesque letters, pictures of every-day objects, that would take a human to recognize. This site pays for you to solve these puzzles, and you can withdraw the money earned from $1, which can be earned in a few hours as a beginner.

I have withdrawn to my Advanced Cash account (the payment system I have written about earlier), so I can confirm that it does work, and work real fast: I had my balance increased within a minute after initializing the withdrawal.

My advise about the site is that you should be more precise than fast. Mistyped captchas will lower your priority on getting new captchas to solve, and may pile up to the point that you get banned. Lower priority isn’t a big problem if the system has a lot of captchas to give, but when they are scarce, higher priority users will be preferred over lower ones. And one more thing: do not cancel any captcha you already got. You will get smaller decrease of your priority by skipping or mistyping a captcha than canceling it.

For me it seems a nice site that offers the ability to get a few bucks relatively fast if you want to buy something online. I have made around $6 in two weeks just by solving a few hundred captchas each day.
