It's been a bit since I posted anything and I assure you some more reviews will be on the way as I join more and more websites. However if you are looking to make some quick money I would recommend taking surveys at Survey Savvy. You get surveys that are pretty easy to complete and they usually take at most 10 minutes for a dollar. I had one rated 7 minutes today and completed it in 4 minutes for 3 dollars.

Clicks For The Year!

I like to ask myself a very important question when I'm clicking ads on a site. How many days a year would I have to click in order to redeem for ads that would last 1 year?

Why is this important you ask? Well I like knowing how many sites I can promote at using 1 site to click and I like knowing how far my clicks go. There are many uses for this actually. If you only want to click for maybe the first 4 months of the year and then redeem for ads that last you the whole year it's useful to know when you can stop.

How can you do this? Well it isn't that hard at all. The first step is to figure out how many ads are normally on the website. I would only bother asking this for websites you actually click all the ads at. Next you find out how much each ad is worth. You also need to find out how much the ad is worth that you want to redeem for. Finally you need an average of how many clicks you get on your ad a day.

Armed with these facts you just now need to do some simple computations. First take the average amount of clicks your ad receives a day and multiply it by the amount of days in a year. This is the amount of clicks you need to earn a year to cover a years worth of PTP. Then divide this by the amount of the clicks the ad you are trying to purchase is worth so you know how many of these ad packages you will want to buy. This is a useful number so remember it when you actually purchase the ad. I then figure out how much I earn a day by multiplying the amount of ads there are on a site a day by how much each ad is worth. Now divide this by the price of the amount of ad packages you need to buy to find out how many days you need to click.

This is a stat that I will start estimating and adding in so that you can figure out how many ads a day there are on a site, how many days you need to click to get ads for a year, and how many clicks you will receive to your ad a day. All of these are important things to remember when maximizing PTP profits.

There are some cheap ads going on right now which I found out while on getpaidforum.com. According to Lighthousewm, which I believe to be the owner of Bang the links, Princess Mails & School Bus of Cash, these ads are being sold. This is the listed prices of LighthouseWM's ads:

"# .0002 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (1000) - $0.25
# .0002 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (2000) - $0.51
# .0002 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (3000) - $0.76
# .0002 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (7 days) - $0.13
# .0002 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (14 days) - $0.25
# .0002 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (21 days) - $0.37
# .0002 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (30 days) - $1.16
# .0004 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (1000) - $0.48
# .0004 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (2000) - $0.97
# .0004 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (3000) - $1.45
# .0004 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (7 days) - $0.26
# .0004 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (14 days) - $0.50
# .0004 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (21 days) - $0.74
# .0004 Targetted Tier 1 & 2 (30 days) - $2.32"

I wouldn't recommend sending it over the forum and just to be safe to actually go on one of the 3 websites and do it there. Link to the forum post is here.

Scam HYIP Websites

I normally frequent talkgold.com a lot and had been hearing about hyips that were using fake libertyreserve websites to steal peoples info. Apparently the problem is more wide spread than I thought. This is what GOLDPROPHET of talkgold.com had to say:
"Dear Friends,

During previous days, I have encountered with some dangerous scam HYIP websites.
The owner of these sites are using fake SCI of libertyreserve.com. Absolutely these are PHISHING sites.
Please note that after login into your account in following websites, for making deosit via LR, the script redirects you to a fake page of LR: libertyreZerve.com or lIIbertyreserve.com and recently lIIbertyreZerve.com

Turnover Ratios

Another important part of earning with PTP is something I call a turnover ratio. This is a ratio that comes from companies figuring out how long their inventory stays in storage before being sold. It's also a ratio used that tells companies how fast they collect money from people who owe it to them. In the world of PTP there are two uses for this ratio as well. One ratio tells you how fast an ad you purchase finishes. This is important because if you buy an ad for 1 dollar that gives 5000 clicks Tier 1 but finishes in 5 months, it won't give you as much profit as buying an ad for 2-3 dollars that gives 5000 clicks and finishes in 1 month. The second ratio tells you how many days you have to click all of the ads on a website to be able to have a years worth of PTP clicks.

The first ratio is very important to know for a website. The turnover ratio for Tier1/Tier2 clicks is always longer than clicks for all tiers. This is quite obvious to figure out since targeting a smaller number of users will of course take an ad longer to finish. However, it's more important to compare the turnover ratio of advertising on two different websites. Take two hypothetical websites. Website A and Website B. Let us assume we have no target and are going for all tiers. Website A offers 10,000 clicks at 1 dollar and Website B offers 10,000 clicks at .90 cents. Most people will choose website B because it's cheaper. However, this is where figuring out the turnover ratio for a website is important. If Website A completes 10,000 clicks in 2 weeks and Website B completes 10,000 clicks in 4 weeks which is a better buy? Obviously Website A is now the better buy. With Website A you spend .10 cents extra but you get your clicks faster.

Finding the ratio though is much harder. To do this you'll need to keep stats of how many clicks you get a day from websites you have bought ads from. Assuming you are getting similar profits per 1000 clicks at each website you then only need to know whether the price is worth the speed in which you are getting the clicks. To find how fast I get clicks I simply find out how fast it takes an ad to finish 1000 clicks. To do this I first take 5 random days of clicks and take an average and call this clicks per day. I then take 1000 and divide this by the clicks per day to figure out how many days it takes to get 1000 clicks. You now know how long it takes for 1000 clicks to be completed.

This of course is not enough. Simply knowing how long 1000 clicks takes won't tell you whether you are making money or not. You need to know the average profit per day as well now. Right now we have a value that indicates days per thousand clicks. We would like a value that gives us the profit per day. Luckily this isn't a hard value to arrive at. To do this we simply take the value we have learned how to calculate which is profit per thousand clicks. This was gone over in my first introduction to PTP here. We then take this value and divide it by the value we just calculated to get profit per day.

Why do we go through all this trouble to calculate this? Because time matters when you are doing PTP. Profit per day is a much more accurate depiction of how much money you can make and this helps you buy ads that will turn you more profit.
