According to Webopedia, “Search engine optimization is a methodology of strategies, techniques, and tactics used to increase the amount of visitors to a website by obtaining a high-ranking placement in the search results page of a search engine.” And as the internet becomes even more crowded, search engine optimization (or SEO) grows even higher in demand.
Wow! So Jenn gave her personal experience and really didn’t seem rude about it at all. But by responding with name calling and a rather explosive and rude response, you, Doesn’t Matter, are the one that looks like a jerkoff. “You look so freaking inconsiderate. The age of entitlement……….ho hum.” Umm… might want to take a look in the mirror on that one.

I just wanted to say that this is, by far, one of the best articles I’ve come across that talks about making money online. I’ve searched all over the place for an article-or website- that has all the information in one place, and is easy to follow. This is the exact article I was looking for! I deeply appreciate the fact that you took your time to write this, and share it with all of us- we really needed this!
Once you really focus your efforts on one method and stop jumping from one thing to another, you will soon start to see results. And once you see results, motivation will take over from there and you will just keep going. The problem for most people is that they give up usually right before they see results. They work for a few weeks or months, they don’t see results, they give up and go for another method. They repeat this with any method the come across, and never make any decent money.
19. eBay – Of course you can’t read an article about making money online that doesn’t mention eBay. You can start an eBay store and get serious about it or you can just sell some stuff to declutter your home. Either way, I’ve made my fair share from selling on eBay and it’s still a popular way to earn money. If you decide to start an actual eBay store, you’ll want to find a drop-ship business like Doba that will store and ship items straight to your customers so you don’t have to deal with an inventory.

However, if you're looking for realistic ways you can start earning money online now, then it really truly does boil down to seven paths you can take towards profit. Some will provide you with immediate results, helping you to address your basic monthly necessities such as rent, utilities and groceries, while others have the potential to transform your life by revolutionizing your finances in the long term.
You'll also need ecommerce software, fulfillment software, worry about warehousing, customer service and refunds. But that's not all. You'll also need traffic. Think search engine optimization, Facebook ads, and other social media campaigns. It is hard work, especially on your own. You could opt for Amazon's platform, which might be the easier route. But, then again, at the end of the day, this is a serious business, which could produce significant profits. So you're either all in or you're not. 
I loved reading your input on this topic. I have only been blogging for a short while now, less than a month, and haven’t actually launched my blog yet because I’m scared what I write about is just going to be stupid and unhelpful to the readers. I’m hoping to gain more confidence and knowledge through reading other blogs and continued work on mine! Thanks for this post/series of posts!
25. Products – You can create your own product, such as an ebook or computer software. You would then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people to buy your product. As long as you create a legitimate product with a whole lot of value, you should be able to get some buyers, but like everything else with a blog, you’ll need the traffic to get the sells.

Hi satrap, I’m from Sri Lanka. I like to do a Online job for earning a extra cash so i joined so much Legitimate sites. but they don’t support because my country is Sri Lanka. so i have to chose what supporting and drop the not supporting sites. but some sites( It’s a few) half supporting, I don’t say it a full support, because that sites maybe don’t send surveys, they send offers only, Sweepstakes, some are only send signing up’s only. but i’m registered these sites now been only a two weeks. so i’m going to keep it up to see what’s going on Online making Money. Because i think it’s gave me a Knowledge somehow. I think my Future It’s give me a way. but next month i will joined for Freelancing, Fiverr and Upwork. Satrap your Blog is so Awesome. It’s easy to read and Understand. satrap can you explain me what is the Different in Blog and Forums?
A virtual assistant (or “VA”) gives professional administrative, technical, or creative/social support to clients via the Web. VAs work online to handle clients’ emails, make travel arrangements, manage schedules, or anything else a time-strapped client may need. And the VA market is exploding, with growth projected to exceed $5 billion in five years’ time (10).
No matter what method you choose to make money online, understand that you might be able to make some money fast, but for the sizable returns, you'll need significant sweat equity. However, a year from now, you'll be happy you started today. Remember, time is far more valuable than money. Focus on creating passive income streams that will free up your time so that you can quit the rat race and focus on the things that matter. 

27. Sponsored/paid posts – Many blogs publish sponsored and paid posts. Sponsored posts are basically just posts about a specific brand, product or service. A company will pay you to publish an article about it. It’s similar with other paid posts as well. Your basically selling the spot for the article on your site. If you decide to take this route, you’ll want to build your traffic before you will get many offers.
Fiverr is one of the biggest providers in the gig economy on the web and you can sell a wide variety of services and products through this medium. Do the research and find out what you can offer. However, keep in mind that like any other money-making task, it takes time to succeed here. And stellar reviews will help you generate more and more income over time.

Cafe Press: This website allows you to create digital designs that can then be sold on the platform. You'll earn a commission for everything that sells and you'll never have to deal with logistics like printing, warehousing and customer service. If you have some graphic design skills, then this is a great potential source for your web-based income. 


From drones that deliver packages to robots that pack and ship them, everything is trending toward mechanization these days. We talked about it earlier in this article, where I called it “automation.” But it’s all the same phenomenon. Greater automation means greater profit for less work, and you have to understand this equation if you want to make money online.

If you're interested in online marketing, setup email software and create a lead magnet that you can use in your sales funnel. Then, build up that list. It's often said that you can expect to earn about $1 per subscriber per month. If you have a list of 10,000 subscribers, that means you can earn roughly around $10,000 per month. You will need to deliver value and not pitch them on every email, but it is a very achievable goal in a short period.
I know this post is a few months old but I stumbled onto an app called Quickthoughts, a survey site. Unfortunately they only give out Amazon gift cards. You redeem them every time you hit $10 which is shockingly easy because every survey if you qualify pays $2 and then id you don’t qualify they credit you .10. I was skeptical because I hit 10 bucks in less than 2 hours and have cashed out 4 $10 Amazon gift cards .i took a screen shot as proof but not too sure how to post or if I am able my current valance is 5.70 doing a few short surveys just today.
Don't sacrifice morals for a quick buck — At the outset, you'll want to do all sorts of things to make money online, but don't sacrifice your morals for a quick buck. Not only will you put people off, but you'll lose Google's trust. You also shouldn't concern yourself with things like Adsense or other ads on a blog before you have around 100,000 visitors per day. Yes, per day. 

29. Videos – This could be an entire section on it’s own. Many people have made money by creating YouTube videos. Evan of EvanTube is a kid and he has made millions by creating reviews of products that other kids his age would use. It’s not easy to get views into the millions, but once you do, you’ll start seeing some cash come in. Many bloggers have completely turned to videos to get their point across by starting a video blog.

Sure, there are some options like blogging that can make you a full time living but it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. But the majority of these methods, like surveys, reviewing, money making apps and so on, are not going to help you quite your day job. They are great for earning a little side cash in your free time. There is no need for me to hype things up and tell you otherwise.
Cashcrate is my favorite site and the one that I’ve received the most checks from. I’ve been doing it for about a year now and honestly have never had a problem with it.You earn money by doing free offers, surveys, watching ads, shopping online, participating in live contests and referring your friends and family members to the site.Cashcrate is one of the most popular GPT sites having 990,000+ members.I have made close to $3000 using this great Get Paid To Site. The amazing part is I’ve spent only about 6 hours a week on this site and I’ve earned $300 in 1 month! I can’t urge you enough to try it out for yourself.
My name is Amr and I’ve been trying to earn money through online jobs for ages and I haven’t made anything that actually counts. I was just wondering if you can help me find a job? like recommending a wesbsite that actually pays where I’m living? Coz most of those websites don’t have much work here. I’m living in Egypt so I’m a native Arabic speaker and my English isn’t too bad. I’m still studying so I don’t have much experience in a real life job except for working as a call center agent for Vodafone Ireland. If you can help find any job that would be available in my country no matter how hard it is or even if it requires some kind of training. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make some extra money. Appreciate your help and sorry for the long comment.

Hats off to Satrap for providing us with this detailed, easy to digest and above all, Honest review on the today’s hottest topic “how to make money online” … it is truly of great help not only for newbies but also for professionals. In this time of today’s cruel world, there are a few persons who dare to guide in the right way to the right path and Satrap, you’re one of them. You are an inspiration to me. May God bless you with everything you are looking for. Amen :)


Mechanical Turk is Amazon's take on micro-jobs. These are small miniscule-jobs that you can do for other people, which they call HITs, or Human Intelligence Tasks. These are super simple tasks that anyone can do. Some examples are listing off some URLs with certain kinds of images for one cent, or recording a few phrases with a microphone for 6 cents.
And yes, if you do commit to something like blogging, or writing and freelancing, you can and will make a living (you could even make way more than you could ever at your day job. That said, no matter how much time and effort you put into things like surveys, paid to click sites and things like that, they are not gonna replace your day job. They are just an attitudinal income generation options that you can use in your free time.
In most cases, when it’s too good to be true…then it normally is. A good way to check would be to first analyse the site and ensure it is in fact indexed in Google. There is no such thing as “Instant Riches”. I agree with Satrap, if you want to make a lot of money online then you’re going to sacrifice the needed time. Making money online is an art, not a contest.

No matter what method you choose to make money online, understand that you might be able to make some money fast, but for the sizable returns, you'll need significant sweat equity.

Great ideas Sean! Right now I’m thinking on making e-commerce websites for small businesses. As good as it sounds, i however do not want to rush in getting clients. I thought it would be better to make an e-commerce website for my mum who makes tasty Indonesian snacks to start out with. The keyword has average 4,000 monthly searches, low competition and high demand. I will take things from there only after my mum’s e-commerce business picks up.

This is my number one way, and I been doing this for the last five years. This is something that almost every major university has been doing (taking their classes online) due to the huge success they saw from University of Phoenix, which set the tone for online education. It’s easier now more than ever for companies and entrepreneurs to launch online schools, and my good friend Marie Forleo is a prime example with her mega success, B-School.

One of the most underrated freelancing sites ever. The site started as a place where you could get paid to do short tasks for just five bucks. Over the years, it has slowly morphed into one of the biggest gig/freelancing sites where you can now charge any amount to do all kinds of stuff for other peoples. Anything from serious stuff like copywriting, translation, voice over social media management to silly stuff like prank calls and everything in between.
The best part about this is that you don’t even have to ever touch the actual product, nor do you have to spend a dime on manufacturing these products. They do all the work for you. You just upload the design, choose the items you want your design to be on, and they’ll handle the rest (i.e. manufacturing, payment, shipping, and handling, returns…).

If you have a propensity for writing and you can slay with your prose, consider writing an ebook. While the market has certainly become saturated as of late, books that help teach people about a technical topic still sell extremely well. This is a great source of passive income but does require a large amount of effort at the outset before any money is generated.

I suppose I should have said She instead of He, and I should not be surprised. Women are notorious for making sure someone is corrected. It is just so frustrating. This person wrote so much helpful information and after reading all that they had provided, this asshat thought to say…….Swagbucks isn’t instant? Really? Why even comment at all? You look so freaking inconsiderate. The age of entitlement……….ho hum. The planet is doomed.
