Make Money on the Internet


Make Money on the Internet following 40 ways


Things you can use to legitimately make money online - Everything from Getting Paid to review software to good ole' Adsense.
  • Pay Per Post - I don't agree with this model entirely but they have advertisers that will pay you to write about their products on your blog.
  • Pheedo - If you have an RSS feed, run it through Pheedo. Like Feedburner, they can include ads into your feed and if you really become large, advertisers will pay a premium for you to show their ads.
  • Shareasale.com - I've used them for a couple years for some banner advertising. They are similar to Commission Junction and Linkshare however they seem to have lower tiered companies with advertising offers.
  • Shoemoney - This is a blog that can teach you a ton on making money online. I've spent hours reading his old stuff.
  • Text Link Ads - I have never made a dime here but I know people that have. You can earn by sending advertisers to them or by selling spots on your site. You must have a real site or blog to do this - nothing on a shared domain (i.e. /blogspot).
  • Vibrant Media - Don't bother unless your site has 500,000 page views of text based content a month. If you have that readership, these are the guys that display bubble box ads to underlined words on your site.
  • West Work At Home Agent - Not entirely online but this is worth a mention because it's won awards and is very 
  • Infolinks - Infolinks is probably the highest paying option for your in-text advertising. On DLM, you will see underlined links scattered throughout articles. Those are a function of Infolinks and without disclosing too much, it's been a great source of income. Best is that they accept all sizes of websites and blogs. Just sign up and begin.
  • Build a Niche Store - This is a simple store development platform which enables you to create content based sites that generate income through the eBay affiliate programs. Pretty darn simple and increasingly popular.
  • Adbrite - Sell space on your site for text ads. This would work like the DLM Marketplace you see on the right of my pages although I chose to manage it myself.
  • Amazon Affiliate Program - Easily create a store or shopping section on your site instead of sending your visitors to Amazon. Amazon handles the shopping cart and fulfillment.
  • Associated Content - If you write a story, how-to, rant, how-to cut grass, etc., you can submit it to them and they will pay you $3-$20 per article if they like it.
  • Azoogleads - Another ad program. They do have some decent companies lined up as advertisers. You provide space, they'll provide an ad.
  • BidVertiser - PPC (pay per click) program with a low $10 payout amount.
  • Blog - Start a blog and consistently write excellent content. With good ad placement, you may make some money. I detail my process here: Simply Said, How to Blog.
  • Google Adsense - Come on, you don't need an explanation; these ads are all over the place. Google displays relevant ads based on your site's content
  • Google Adwords - Create simple text ads and choose keywords that determine when they are displayed. This is where the Adsense Content comes from. You do not need a site for this.
  • H3.com - Get paid to fill jobs. Commissions range from $50-$5,000. It all depends on how tough the job is to fill and how desperate the hiring company is. This is another one that's tough to explain.
  • Indeed.com - Add their job board to your site. They then post jobs based on the geographic location of visitors and the position types you pre-select. I tried it and I they continually report that I sent 0 visitors and I know that's not right. Nevertheless, I may have an isolated problem so they make the list.
  • InnerSell - If you have a customer that wants to buy something you cannot sell, you can sell the lead here.
  • Jigsaw - It's a pretty flaky model but if you have a Rolodex full of good contacts, you can sell them here. I can't make sense of it but it looks like you get $0.10 per profile.
  • LinkShare.com - If you have a site, you can join Linkshare. Once enrolled for free, you can choose companies whose ads are pertinent to your site. Companies have the ultimate say on working with you. Like Commission Junction, there are a ton of companies waiting to evaluate your site.
  • Microsoft Adcenter - Bid on keywords and Microsoft places your created ads then they are searched for. This is similar to Google Adwords. You do not need a site for this.
  • Cafepress - You provide a design, they'll toss it on a T-Shirt, Hat, etc. No upfront costs. Get a free online shop and promote your products on your website.
  • Chitika - Their eMiniMalls service has shown great results for many Bloggers and site owners. You choose a keyword and they show relevant products on your site using a pretty unique interface.
  • Clickbank - Quickly becoming my favorite affiliate program. They have thousands of things for you to advertise on your site.
  • ClicknWork - Get paid $5-$150 per hour for basically doing freelance work on a per-assignment basis. You have to pass a pretty tough test to get in.
  • Clicksor - These are the guys that generate contextual ads on sites that show up when you hover over a double-underlined word.
  • Commission Junction - If you have a site, you can join Commission Junction. Once enrolled for free, you can choose companies whose ads are pertinent to your site. Companies have the ultimate say on working with you. There are easily over 1,000 companies to choose from here.
  • CreamAid - For blogs only, advertisers provide you with a topic and you write about it on your site. To do this, you have to install a flash widget into your blog post. The more people you bring into the conversation through the widget, the more you get paid. It's difficult to explain.
  • eefoof - Think of it as YouTube + Flickr + Music. You add original content and they pay you based on the visitors you attract.
  • Ether - If you are an expert on something, Ether provides a way for people to pay you to talk about it in a one-on-one setting. If you want to charge $250/hr, that's fine. You have to do all the advertising so you should have a blog or site already established.
  • eBay- Come on, you know what this is. Gather your junk and sell it!
  • eBay Stores - If you have a real store and want to sell your stuff online, this is a decent option to get you started.
  • ELance - Name gives it away. Programmers, Codes, Web Designers, Writers, Editors, can look for freelance opportunities.
  • Feedvertising - This is an arm of Text Link Ads and is currently only good for Wordpress users. This does me no good currently, but as you can guess, they place ads in your feed(s).
  • Feedburner / Google - Not only are they the best place to house your feeds, they will also add ads to your feed and website. You get paid per impression and if you implement Google Adsense to your feed, you are paid per click.



How to Withdraw Money Online


Withdraw Money Online


The Internet can provide you with convenient ways of withdrawing money online without having to travel to your local bank or financial institution. The Internet banking system has strict security to protect any transactions performed online. Though money can be withdrawn online, you will still need to either have an ATM card or be willing to wait for the funds to be mailed to your home in the form of a cashiers check.


# Withdraw Money From a Credit Card Online: 

Withdrawing money from your credit card online to another account or to pay a bill is becoming more common. With the advent of completely online financial services such as PayPal and online banks, electronic withdrawals and money transfers are accomplished rapidly and securely. “Withdrawing” literally means taking money out. However, withdrawing money online may more accurately be considered a “transfer”.


1) The PayPal Withdrawal to Credit Card Feature Works:
PayPal is an e-commerce service used for transferring money, making payments and purchasing items online. You can withdraw funds from your PayPal account by requesting a check or transferring the amount to a bank account, a PayPal debit MasterCard or a Visa credit, debit or prepaid card. This credit card feature is available in more than 20 countries.

 i) Open Verified PayPal:            
 Many people worldwide use PayPal as a secure means to spend and receive funds. If you have recently opened a PayPal account, you will have noticed that its status is listed as "Unverified." This restricts the amount of money you are allowed to withdraw or send. Having your PayPal account verified lifts this restriction, with the added advantage of giving you more credibility when buying and selling through eBay and other online retailers.

# Withdraw Money From a Checking Account:

Technological innovations have made it possible for you to withdraw money from your checking account at various places outside of the bank---online and offline. Most banks and third-party organizations still take very thorough precautions to assure that the account holder is the person who is withdrawing cash from the account, by asking for identification, checking signatures, asking for address and Social Security number information, asking you to verify recent deposits and requiring you to login online. There are a variety of ways that you can withdraw money from your checking account other than the obvious method of walking up to a teller.


1) Withdrawal at the Bank:
Withdrawing cash from your checking account is a fairly simple process, and there are several ways to withdraw money from your account. As long as you have a withdrawal slip, a blank check or a debit card, you'll be able to withdraw cash from your bank account.
           i) Fill Out a Checking Withdrawal Slip:                
                   A checking withdrawal slip is a bank-provided document that allows you to withdraw money from your checking account. You may use a checking withdrawal slip when you visit your financial institution if you do not want to write a check or use your ATM card.


**Fill Out Withdrawal Slips:

When you want to take money out of your checking or savings account, banks ask you to fill out a withdrawal slip. You have to include important information on this slip so that the bank can keep accurate records of your withdrawal and give you the amount you want. The bank will deduct your withdrawal amount from your balance, so you want to make sure your information is accurate and readable.

Galaxy VS iPhone



Samsung Galaxy S4′sDisplay Will Put the iPhone 5′s Retina to Shame


Galaxy S4 Display vs Retina

For the last couple of years, the quality of smartphones isn’t measured by the number of cores and the amount of storage on the device; but by the display resolution and the sharpness of the display play, which of course is an important role in determining the quality of a smartphone.





According to a recent report, the next addition to Samsung’s top-selling Galaxy S line-up is going to sport a high resolution display, and will have the highest resolution of any other smartphone currently available in the market; this also includes the iPhone 5 with its retina display.




Samsung Galaxy Series


In the past few weeks, we have watched (and read) the good news roll in for Samsung; proof positive that their Galaxy Series has really paid off. Reports are flooding in about the tech giants last quarter, and their bold predictions about 2013 and the mobile market. Apple on the other hand, has some serious soul searching to do, with the future of their device line. Apple stocks seem to be taking a tumble, while many see smooth sailing ahead for Samsung.
Even though Samsung has kept the details on their next flagship device tightly wrapped, it has been known for quite sometime that the Galaxy S4 will at the very least come with a Super AMOLED display, with a pixel density of 440ppi. Although, newer reports are claiming the Korean giant will ditch the traditional side by side pixel layout for the latest hexagonal diamond layout.  This allows more pixels to be stuffed into a smaller space. This would definitely be a bigger step from the current Galaxy S3’s 306ppi display and even the iPhone 5’s 326ppi Retina display.






The Samsung Galaxy S line-up has been the most popular smartphone franchise and has managed to capture a large market share. Even though the Korean manufacturer has been quite mum on the details about the Galaxy S4, we are almost sure a better display is on the list. At CES in Las Vegas, Samsung showed us a prototype of a bendable display and it looks brilliant. But, we are still not sure if Samsung is going to introduce it with the next flagship Galaxy S Phone.

BlackBerry Z10 review


The BlackBerry Z10 is the brand’s response to its critics, the flagshiphandset for the company’s all new BlackBerry 10 operating system






It should come as no surprise to you that the BlackBerry Z10 isn’t going to have a hard time winning over BlackBerry fans. It’s not like it had a hard act to follow, a year of limbo has left its followers with a collection of handsets that range from the excellent BlackBerry Bold 9900 to the less so BlackBerry Torch.








Of course whether they were excellent handsets or not mattered not as they were all running the dreaded BlackBerry 7.0, an OS that has become eclipsed by the constantly updated Android and iOS operating systems.







The Z10 hopes to change all that by combining the brand's superb hardware capabilities – the BlackBerry PlayBook was an excellent tablet crippled by its OS – with a smartphone OS that can finally compete with the likes of Google and Apple.

T3 managed to get a review sample of the phone a couple of days before the official launch - not really enough time for a full review, but here's what we thought about it.

BlackBerry Z10: Size and build








The BlackBerry Z10 measures in at 130 x 65.6 x 9mm making it around the same size as a Samsung Galaxy S2. The Z10 comes in black or white and features an all-plastic body with a slightly rubberised back then can be peeled off to gain access to battery, Micro SD card slot and Micro SIM slot.

Moving away from the glossy glamour of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the  iPhone 5 the Z10 has gone for a more subtle effect that actually it pulls off rather well. Learning from the PlayBook, BlackBerry has combined a matte-effect sturdiness with a level of build quality that reminds you this is its flagship model.

BlackBerry Z10: Features



Under the hood there’s a dual-core 1.5GHz processor along with an impressive 2GB of RAM. There’s 16GB of internal memory with a Micro SD card slot that can be bumped up to 32GB.

One of the key features of the Z10 is the lack of buttons on the front of the handset, everything is done through swiping from off-screen using BlackBerry’s new ‘Peek and Flow’ OS.


Apps to download first BlackBerry 10

Best BlackBerry 10 apps to download and make the most of the new operating system that aims to take a swipe at iOS, Android and Windows Phone 





BlackBerry 10 is here and the first two handsets the Q10 smartphone with physical keyboard and touchscreen based Z10 handset have been officially unveiled. We've been fortunate enough to get some hands on time with the new BlackBerry Z10  to check out the best features but also some of the apps you can expect to play with.

We already know that Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn will be integrated into the BlackBerry 10 operating system with Skype and WhatsApp also unveiled during the official unveiling, so we've picked out the confirmed apps for BlackBerry 10 that you should pack onto your handset first.

The Z10 will be coming to EE's 4G network available for £49.99 on a £41 per month 24 month contract giving users 1GB data and unlimited calls and texts. Orange and T-Mobile customers can expect to get the Z10 for £49.99 but on a £36 per month contract offering the same amount of data, unlimited calls and texts.
EE hasn't yet given an exact date when the handset will be available however you can expect it to be within the next few weeks.

Vodafone has confirmed it will also be selling the BlackBerry Z10 from tomorrow with the 4G-ready smartphone available for £29 upfront on a £42 a month contract giving you unlimited texts, calls and 2GB of data.

The Z10 will be just one of a number of smartphones that Vodafone will be offering to customers on its upcoming 4G network which, when launched, will be rivalling EE's own superfast service.

Facebook invite for event next week ‘sparks rumours of mobile phone in offing’

Social networking giant Facebook has issued invites for an event at its California headquarters next week, fueling rumours that the firm is planning to launch its own mobile phone.



 

The invite for the event says `Come and see what we''re building'.
While it''s possible thatFacebook is simply unveiling another update to its website, there have been frequent rumours that the company plans to make its own mobile phone, the Telegraph reports.

According to the paper, some recent reports have claimed that Facebook is working on a mobile handset with manufacturer HTC.
The new device would connect directly to a user''s Facebook account and run software such as Facebook Messenger and Instagram, the picture sharing service Facebook bought last year.

The site's founder Mark Zuckerberg, however, poured cold water on the speculations last year, saying `building out a phone wouldn''t make sense for us to do.'

Zuckerberg has talked in the past about the need to improve Facebook search, so there is some speculation that next week''s event will be about that.

Samsung Galaxy S smartphones sales touch 100 mln mark globally



South Korean electronics giant Samsung has said that worldwide sales of its Galaxy S smartphones have surpassed 100 million mark.

Samsung said it had sold over 25 million Galaxy S smartphones, 40 million Galaxy S II smartphones and 41 million Galaxy S III smartphones.
Samsung launched the first Galaxy S model at the end of May 2010, amid increasing competition with iphone maker Apple, the Herald Sun reports.
According to the report, research firm IHS iSuppli said last month Samsung beat Nokia in mobile phone sales and Apple in smartphone sales last year.

Apple''s iPhone sales hit the 100-million mark in March 2011, nearly four years after the introduction of the phone in 2007, the report said.

Robots cook and serve food at Chinese restaurant

A restaurant in China''s northern Heilongjiang province has 20 robots working for it, as waiters, cooks and busboys.


 
According to the South China Morning Post, the mechanical staff at Robot Restaurant in Harbin can work continuously for five hours after charging for two hours and can also display more than 10 expressions on their faces.

When a diner walks in, an usher robot extends their mechanic arm to the side and says ''Earth person hello. Welcome to the Robot Restaurant.''
After diners have ordered, robots in the kitchen set to work cooking their meals.
Once the dish is prepared, a robot waiter, which runs along tracks on the floor, carries it from kitchen to table, the Daily Mail reported.

A singing robot entertains diners as they eat.

The restaurant has gained international fame and continues to grow in popularity since it opened in June last year.

iPhone 5 owners download most data among smartphone users in Europe, finds study

Apple iPhone 5 owners use the most mobile download data of all European smartphone owners, according to a new research.


 

In a new study, Apple iPhone 5 owners were found to use 50 percent more download data than iPhone 4S users.

However, Samsung Galaxy S III was top of the list for data uploads, ahead of the iPhone 3G and the third-placed iPhone 5.

This is the third year of the study, conducted by Arieso, and for the first time smartphone users were shown to be downloading more data than tablet owners, the Telegraph reports.

According to the report, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 was above the Apple iPad on the tablet data list, with Tab 2 owners using 20 percent more download data than iPad users.

China mobile users hit by large botnet bug

Security researchers in China have discovered a huge botnet running on the smartphones of more than a million unsuspecting mobile users in the country.


The devices had been infected by a Trojan-based attack first discovered in 2011, news agency Xinhua reported.








The botnet can allow the smartphones to be hijacked remotely and potentially be used for fraudulent purposes, the BBC reported.
The warning comes as mobile Internet use in China has soared, growing by more than 18 percent in the past year.

There are now more than 420 million mobile users, according to the China Internet Network Information Center (Cinic).

The surge has attracted the attention of Apple chief executive Tim Cook, who met with the chairman of China Mobile last week, the report said.
Details of the meeting were scant, but a China Mobile spokesman said it was regarding `matters of co-operation' in the region.
According to the report, in China specifically, local authorities even went as far as to warn operators to clean up security weaknesses in their mobile app stores.
Despite warnings at the time, it is believed that the Trojan is still very much active and enabling the growth of the botnet, the report said.

Users have been advised to monitor their call and data logs for unusual activity, it added.

How Facebook's new search tool could also help businesses




Graph Search feature could provide businesses with reams of information about customers -- and help find new clients



Businesses that aren't very active on Facebook might want to think about ramping up their presence in case Facebook's new service proves useful.
Facebook's new Graph Search, announced this morning but not yet available, could be a valuable tool for businesses, who increasingly use the social network to maintain contact with customers.

[ Also on CITEworld, see how Avanade broke free of the email trap | Sign up for CITEworld's InCITE newsletter -- delivered weekly. ]

Graph Search is designed to offer a much better search function for Facebook users to find material they and their contacts have posted on Facebook. It is not a full Web search tool like Google or Microsoft's Bing, but is rather meant to improve the fairly poor internal Facebook search available now.

For instance, users will be able to find all the photos they've liked, search for all photos of two particular people, and locate all their friends who live in a particular city, Tom Stocky, a Facebook product director, said on a video about the service. Other examples Facebook offered include looking for music that friends like or searching for people who like cycling who are from your hometown.

Facebook pitched the new feature as an end-user benefit, but in fact it could prove extremely useful to businesses who want to make the most of their presence on Facebook.

For instance, a retail business might be able to search among its users for everyone who likes posts about a certain kind of product in order to offer them a deal, or search for all followers in a city in order to invite them to an event. A business might be able to search for followers who have attended certain kinds of events or checked in at particular locations.

Business could use GraphSearch in subtler ways. Searching for the kind of food and music followers in a city like could inform decisions about the kind of food and music featured at an event.
Eventually, Graph Search could become a useful tool for advertisers as well. CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company is not displaying advertisements in search results at first, but as the product matures, this seems like an obvious way for Facebook to increase revenue -- and perhaps steal search ad budget from rival Google.
Facebook said that results will only show things that have been shared with you on Facebook.

For now, Facebook GraphSearch is available in a "very limited program" in the United States. Facebook is offering a sign-up page for people interested in finding out when they can start using the service.
The concept behind Graph Search is reminiscent of a similar service from Microsoft's Bing search engine. Users who connect their Bing searches to Facebook will see results in the right hand column of Bing that come from their Facebook friends.

Mobile security remains a BYOD hurdle at the federal level






Mobile security remains a BYOD hurdle at the Federal levelJust like employees in the private sector, government employees are reveling in the productivity gains of accessing their office apps and data from their smartphones and tablets. However, not unlike private companies, federal agencies are falling short on securing those devices, potentially increasing the ease with which malicious hackers and cyber criminals can get their hands on potentially sensitive Federal data, be it Social Security numbers, FBI files, and so forth.

The good news, per the Telework Exchange's 2013 Digital Dilemma Report, is that federal employees are gaining, on average, nine more hours of productivity per week thanks to the adoption of work-connected mobile devices. The exchange equates that to an extra $28 billion worth of man-hours per year.

Saving money and boosting productivity are obvious and well-documented benefits of mobile computing and BYOD, so those figures aren't necessarily surprising. However, digging deeper into the data reveals some points of concern about data security.

First, a glimpse of which devices federal employees are using and how: Just under half said they use their personal devices for work purposes. Ninety-three percent use laptops, 64 percent use smartphones, and 19 percent use tablets. Overall, 76 percent of federal employees use mobile devices to access government data, while 42 percent store their email on their devices.

Unfortunately, federal agencies don't seem to be doing an adequate job ensuring that the government data flowing to and from mobile devices is sufficiently secure. (This isn't to say that the private sector, in general, has done a great job in getting a handle on mobile security either. It's not a simple task, to which IT pros can attest.) For example, 79 percent of federal employees have multifactor authentication on their laptops, but only 27 percent have it on their smartphones and tablets. Seventy-six percent have a secure remote connection from their laptops, compared to 27 percent who have that on their mobile devices. Interestingly, though, 24 percent of federal employees' smartphones and tablets are equipped with remote data-wipe functionality, compared to 11 percent of federal laptops.

Here's yet more doom and gloom from the report: 85 percent of federal employees said they have downloaded at least one app to their personal device, a point of concerns considering the 185 percent rise in mobile malware attacks over the past year.

To their credit, agencies are educating employees about mobile security. Eighty-four percent of respondents said they knew who to call if they have a mobile device security question or concern; 80 percent said they have reviewed written mobile device security information; and 74 percent have participated in mobile device security training in the past 12 months.

On the other hand, only 11 percent of employees said they knew whether their organization had any kind of official BYOD policy. Sixty-one percent said theirs didn't have one, and the other 28 percent said they weren't sure.

The Telework Exchange offers straightforward advice: Federal agencies must accept the fact that employees will use their personal devices for work and develop clear BYOD guidelines accordingly. They should then enforce regulations to ensure data and network security -- and help the cause by enabling secure connections and data access.

The Telework Exchange is hosting a Webcast about mobility, security, and productivity on Feb. 12. More information is available The Telework Exchange's website. Also consider checking out InfoWorld's guide to a successful BYOD and mobile IT strategy.
