  6. Prabhakaran says

    A wonderful attempt to educate the laymen about various avenues for making money online. I have tried to register myself on mTurk and Webanswer but was not successful. Since they had not asked for details of educational or other background, I do not know the reason for rejection. I had not even provided my photograph or otherwise I could have thought that they did not like my face! Strange!

    • Adinarayana says

      I worked for mturk for ten months and my ac was suspended. I tried to open another account but not registered and eventually it is known that they have freezed and not registering Indians any more.

  7. anand says

    please dont join these kind of programs. finally they ask money. say rs.500. if one lakh people joined they get rs.5 crores. 99% of advt is fake. on sending samples u will get 30 lines per page. originally it will be 70 lines. 250 lines in 12 days which u cant. ad posting jobs u have to register with google, amazon etc.only if it is free, join

  8. Shubhalakshmi Mishra says

    shorttask does not let one register, is it a spam?or is there a a problem with the site?I have been trying for a month now,

    • gbaban says

      Short Task does allow you to register. I have successfully registered only yesterday… This is for your information.

      @ Priya N
      Great Article, Priya!! You have provided a great window for new entrants in this field who have been searching unfruitfully for legitimate money making websites for a long time. Such info is not easily available even on net at one place.

      Great Work!!


  9. Shubha says

    Do you only reply to appreciations??why dont you reply to my query on Shorttasks??pls inform if its spam so that people dont waste time on such websites… You would know about it if you have entered its name in the list, its does’nt seem authentic like microworkers or clickworker

    • Priya N says

      Hi Subha,
      I reply to all the comments if I think there is any reply needed. I do want people come with their good or bitter ‘make money’ experiences & share with this blog readers. Although I do research a lot before writing about any of the topic but I can’t get real experiences every where & that is where you can play a very important role to give your opinion.
      I don’t have any association with any of the site & I really don;t want any of my blog visitors to waste their time on useless things. Thanks for your review & comment.

  11. says

    I am very sad that Priya’s genuine effort is not really appreciated by many Indians as they are too lazy even to read the FAQ. Spoon feeding cannot be done. Online earning requires a certain level of self learning attitude.

  12. strix says

    priya ma`m its my request you to please lay more stress on as this is the genuinely paying site which pays for quality work..

  13. vasanth says

    i came across this site today. i am already working on clickworker. You have listed some websites for earning, including clickworker. I request you to recommend me a site which is good and similar to clickworker.
