Earn Cash Each Time You Search
Attention Penny Hoarders! If you're an avid Google search connoisseur, your searching efforts can be rewarded handsomely with the new Google competitor on the block....in cash!! If you haven't heard of Qmee.com, head on over now because if you're one of the first 20 Penny Hoarder readers to sign up, your membership is automatically processed during Qmee's beta launch.
What is Qmee?
Basically, Qmee is a search engine that rewards you for what you're most likely already doing on the Internet...searching for the things you want to learn about, visit, listen to, etc. Built on the idea that Internet advertising should give something back, Qmee's founders designed the site to reward its users for their organic search and click power. Once you submit your sign up information, you'll receive an email to verify your account and then you're on your way to earning real money simply for searching the Internet and clicking on the results you truly find intriguing or interesting.
How Does Qmee Work?
As mentioned above, Qmee works by you logging into your created account, searching the Internet, clicking on various links to find the information you're looking for, then receiving money for your searches and clicks. Payments are made via PayPal, but if you don't have an account, you can easily opt for your earnings to be sent directly to the charity of your choice (Qmee has an extensive list you can choose from and the best part is the company takes $0 from any charity transfer--100% of what you earn goes directly to the organization you choose). With no limits and virtually instant PayPal money transfers at your disposal, the sky is the limit as to how much you can earn from Qmee.
How Much Can I Earn?
You can earn anywhere from a few pennies to a few dollars for each thing you search for and the corresponding links you click on to learn more. For the best chance at earning some serious cash, make sure your efforts are organic and natural--Qmee is not a site that will reward repetitive clicks/searches for the same items. Keep it simple, keep it real and you'll be on your way to earning money for the things you most likely are already searching Google for.
What's the Catch?
At this point, we really can't see a catch to this deal, which is why we're writing about it and sharing it with all of you. Yes, it's a bit of a pain that the interface only works on a desktop or laptop, but it could be worse and plans are already in the works to take the Qmee technology mobile. The company also works hard to protect your privacy and they don't alter search results to benefit their advertisers. Sign up today and search your way to hundreds of dollars!
Good luck, Penny Hoarders!
Update 5/13/03 - The site is no longer in Beta. Yay! You still need an invite from a registered user to signup, but once you're in, you're in. Let me know how much money you make from searching in the comments below... :)
