    Earn a quick $0.50 - Help other Webmasters

    Hi,

    I am looking to add reviews to my web site, Web Hosting Opinions.

    All you have to do is review your web host at the address below, and I will forward $0.50 to your PayPal account.

    http://www.webhostingopinions.com/add_review.php


    In order for me to pay you, your review must be high quality, and be as descriptive as possible. You must also be a current or ex client of the host you are reviewing.

    When you're done, simply reply to this post with your PayPal e-mail address, and I'll send you the money. I will check this page several times per day.

    Thanks.

    50c? lol .. For 50c I will give you a single paragraph review. You can't even do anything with 50c.

    Yeah, typical paypal fees are 2.9% + 0.30 per transaction.

    Works out to 33 cent fee, or 17 cents for me to pocket.

    Assuming I can write a 1 paragraph review in say, 5 minutes, that works out to...

    5 min = 1/30th hours

    .17 * 30 = $5.10 / hour

    Which is less than the minimum wage in the US (currently $5.15 / hour).

    No thanks.

    thats less than the UK minimum wage for 16-17 year olds!
    Not that I have a min wage job but still, makes you glad to be english.
    Uk min wage for 21+ is £5.05 (going up to £5.35 this year), plus minimum 20 days holiday (not including national holidays)

    FWIW, 5 minutes is a 12th of an hour. meaning $2.04 an hour

    Yeah you would have made a couple of g's..Sure I know you're usually a good answer to a lot of problems, but is every one of your posts "high quality" and "as descriptive as possible"?

    lol, that's the spirit! I'm also a bit drunk.. I went to a local pub for pool comp, and god damnit if i had been drinking heavier i probably would have won it!! got knocked out in semi final match but it was close.

    Anyway, I dont see any point in this thread being pursued any further.. I'm pretty sure our point has been carried across.

    Hi guys, thanks for your comments. I realize $0.50 isn't very much, but you don't have to do very much either. I'm not asking for an essay to be written, but I simply don't want people submitting things like "this host sucks" or "this host is the best". Other than that, everything will be approved. If you want to make a bit more money, feel free to review multiple hosts, as long as you've been with the companies you are reviewing.

    Thanks for your time.
