Get Paid for the Time you Spend Online
(originally the "Paid to Surf" Section)
This section used to be one of the biggest (old timers will remember the 'paid to surf' companies All Advantage, Desktop Dollars etc. that were around 3 or so years ago) but gradually a lot of companies have come and gone and now there seem to be only a handful left. These are the programs that will more than likely require you to download software to enable you to either view ads or get paid just for generally downloading it in the first place!! (i.e Gomez Peer - see review below).
- Have been around sometime now. The company have a whole new concept to 'paid to surf', but is by far one of the best around. As with other paid to surf companies you download and run their software, but with this one instead of getting paid to view ads on an adbar this software works unobtrusively out of view using your computer processor to test the performance of websites.
For every hour that your computer has processed information they will pay around 3c. Not a great deal we know but it's not bad for doing absolutely nothing!
They will pay $1 for every referral who becomes active, (this isn't guaranteed but to give yourself a better chance to become active just keep running the software, their demographics for who they need to use their software changes monthly) Their minimum payout is only $5 payable via PayPal. For a more in depth explanation as to how it all works, take a look at their site. Have been paid many times with this one, well worth joining and highly recommended.
- collects information that is used by a U.S.-based market research company that is a nationally-recognized authority on Internet and general economic trends. Major media outlets such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, CNN, and CNBC routinely cite this data.
