Making money by being paid to click on ads

I was wondering if any members here were familiar with PTC (paid-to-click) websites like Probux and Neobux? I recently signed up with Neobux and have been making just a few cents a day. I have read online blogs and articles about people who rent referrals as well as advertise their affiliate links in order to get direct referrals, of which Neobux will pay a certain amount per referral.

Has anyone tried using this website and other similar ones? What are the best strategies to make a steady income (I'm sure it won't be a huge sum, but several small streams of steady passive income is better than nothing)?

I do a similar site called Clixsense. It's annoying to click small ads for pennies but I've cashed out $8 twice and $16 sitting in my savings account is better than nothing.
The people who probably make decent extra money are the people who have referrals and have people clicking for them.

I never heard of this until now. I will check this out as I am in need of extras cash right now. I wonder how long it will take to get $10 on these kind of sites.

Programs like this have been around for years, and in many cases someone always ends up coming out with some sort of automated app to handle the clicking, earning you money while you are away from your computer.

There was even an ISP that would give you free internet access as long as you agreed to see and click on ads from time to time.

Yeah these type of programs have been around for several years and one of the oldest and still actively running is Wordlinx, a site I am a member of. They don't always have decently paying ads, but they have a very lucrative affiliate program where if you get active direct referrals, you can make a nice, steady income from them.

Moreover, I frequently use ClixSense and regard it as the best, genuine PTC site simply because you don't need to invest anything but some time to make money. Every year, I upgrade my account by paying only $17 and that is a fraction of what most other sites cost. This $17 goes a long way and earns you more commission from their site features and your active referrals. I view their ads and complete some of their third party offers and surveys (that can be iffy sometimes), generating up to $30-50 dollars per month, which allows me to profit far past my investment in no time.

Aside from Wordlinx and ClixSense, I also use a lot more sites that would simply be too much to name, NeoBux and ProBux included. On NeoBux, I only view some of their ads and complete some of their tasks, but I am not in favor of their rented referral system. It's complicated and it's controversial, too. Sometimes they click, sometimes they don't click. Are they real or are they not real people? The same goes for ProBux and other type of "Bux" sites.

Interesting advice, thanks ! I will keep this in mind. I was wondering how much a person could potentially make from sites like these but I guess it would be minuscule unless you had a large number of referrals so that you can gain from the commissions.

Yes, I read about the so-called rented referrals on Neobux and Probux. It does seem very complicated!

It's hardly passive income, since you do have to tend to it everyday, but if you manage to get enough referrals, then this could be true. It's a lot more difficult nowadays, though, since the industry as a whole has already peaked a long time ago. Not to mention, the ones that are left only pay so little, and the only one I could find that still pay one cent per click is Clixsense, and even they don't offer that many ads daily anymore.

I tried out NeoBux a couple years ago for the hell of it, but if I recall at the time, they only let you click on about 5 or so ads per day. It would have taken me months just to earn about a $1. I wouldn't bother with any of these personally, since there's always a possibility they fold up before you can even cash out.

I have done this in the past until the website started withholding payments and I decided to leave.

A lot of PTCs back then turned scam because it boomed and became a popular industry. Now scam sites have evolved onto other GPT programs and the new PTCs rarely turn out to be scams anymore, if at all, especially with a little research. The downside is that the reason so few of them are scams nowadays, is that they pay and get so little compared to what they used to rake in before, which makes it almost pointless, so yeah, I do agree with your distaste for this particular industry.

I have never really got into renting referrals. I have always used Social Media forums to promote referral links.

I find the constant need to click on the ads (for what amounts to a few pennies) to be tedious and often not practical. What if I wanted to go on a long holiday somewhere where there is no internet?

This to me is the same idea as swagbucks, which, I simply cannot make worth my time. These really appeal to the market of stay-at-home or unemployed people who would truly be doing NOTHING else with their time.

I'm willing to take surveys here and there, secret shop a place that is on my regular commute, and even write articles for online income, but I can't justify a few cents an hour to click and risk getting adware on my computer.

I have done this in the past just to see what it was like... but I tired of it quickly with most of the places. What finally made me stop it for good was cashing out after a LONG time of clicking on penny ads just to reach a payout and then never got paid. They wouldn't answer my mail either... still very annoyed about that.

That is best, I think, for these types of programs. You just can never be entirely sure if those rented referrals are real people or just bots controlled by the owner, in which case, your profits will entirely be in their hands and you wouldn't have any recourse. At lease if you find the referrals yourself you can be assured of the quality and legitimacy.

I have an account with Probux, Neobux and Clicksense and love all of them. They are a very slow way to earn money, but if you do it right,you can earn a decent amount each month from them. It just requires some work with getting direct referrals, and managing your rented referrals if you buy them.

I currently have 39 referrals on Probux and haven't put a dime into it, which means I will be looking to cash out $2-3 a week, and it's only going to continue to grow :).

Some money is better than no money!

The cashout takes a long time as you make so little it takes almost forever to get to the minimum amount. I tend to make more money on Neobux, Clixsense and Probux from their offers and minijobs. Some of the minijobs were pretty enjoyable and (depending on your luck) if you get one that pays relatively well (13-20 cents per minijob) you can earn quite a lot. On one lucky day I made $27 in one day and at the end of the day, I cashed it out instantly.
