Giving Yuwie a try

As I was doing my daily Entrecard drops I paused and read Earn Money Online for Free's post about Yuwie. So I thought I would give it a try.

Side note - Yes I do read other blogger's posts. Usually you have to capture my attention with a well written title though.

Anyway back to Yuwie, it is somewhat like MySpace or Facebook with the added benefit of making money. The earnings are based on page views. Every time a logged in member views one of your pages or you view one of your control panel pages you earn a page view. Yuwie's example shows them paying at the rate of $0.05 per 1,000 page views. The TOS indicates that the Revenue Share Rate [RSR] is subject to change. Wow, now that I have done the math it doesn't seem like much but if you have a good downstream referral group you could consivably make a fair amount of money...although probably nothing like the example of over $10,000 per month.

So far I've been signed up for about an hour and have 44 page views. Those are mostly from me mucking about trying to figure things out.

If Yuwie sounds like something you might be into please join under my referral link. It doesn't hurt you but helps both me and the blogger who got me to sign up.

Contest notes: Tomorrow I should be able to calculate a winner for the July CentSports Contest. I'm going to be running a new contest in August. Anyone who signs up or has already signed up as my referral for either CentSports or Yuwie will be automatically entered to win 750 ECs. Good luck to all who enter.

i have tried yuwie but now have stopped since there are too much things to do for a few cents... it would be good if you have lots of active referrals though...

I signed up, but I don't know. I got a bunch of ads thrown at me before I could even create a profile.

I'll give it a look this weekend...

I had a Yuwie profile ages ago, but it just seemed a complete waste of my time and effort to try and make a a couple of cents a month..

gosh i'm overwhelmed. I'm finally FINALLY getting the hang of entrecard, commentluv, wordpress, shareaholic, 30 day challenge (a great great tool! with free stuff, real tips, all in a fun way. nope I get nothin for pimping them. just saying.) Now there's Yuwie and adsense and market samurai and sezwho.... argh! I'm excited and frightened both1

I tried out Yuwie and I agree with you. I got ads just funneled at me and then had to contend with endless "friend" requests.

Want to go look at your friend requests? Ah, it's time to head over to Yuwie and get hammered with more ads!

I honestly hope some folks out there are doing well with it. It's not for me, but good luck...

Yuwie relies on the smaller sites for mass tradeoffs. No small site makes money using this...we're just go betweens.
