Web Answers is a get paid to answer questions website similar to Yahoo Answers. However, unlike Yahoo Answers where you do not get paid and no Google Adsense account is needed to participate, you will need to have an approved Google Adsense account or apply for one, once you become a member of Web Answers.
How Web Answers Works
You create a new user account. You then answer questions posted on Web Answers based on your experience in all kinds of topics, including hobbies, relationships, careers, finance, health, among others.
If your answer is selected as the “Best Answer” among all other answers posted to that specific question, you will earn ongoing advertising royalties on that thread and this question become yours to monetize. WebAnswers automatically displays Google Advertisements on your behalf for all questions awarded to your account.
If you do not have a Google Adsense account, once you have answered atleast 50 questions, you will receive an invitation to open a Google Adsense account. This email invitation will automatically be sent to the email address that you used when registering with Web Answers.
How Much Money Can You Earn With Web Answers
There is no limit on how much money you can earn on this site. How much money you earn depends on the kind of questions you have selected to answer, how often you are willing to participate and if your answer is selected as the “best”. The more “Best Answers” you receive, the more money you earn.
In addition, if a question isn’t selected yet, Web Answers use their advanced quality score algorithm to rotate ads of those who answered the questions. The higher is your quality score, the more times your ad will be shown on that question and throughout the site.
So, it is important to provide quality answers by answering each question to the best of your ability so as to increase your quality score as well as your earnings. Otherwise, junk responses and/or spamming the system will only count against you.
According to Web Answers, users who rank higher earn more money, not only because of their ranking score but they may also have ads linked to their Adsense account displayed on other areas of the site.
How Do You Get Paid?
As I have said, Web Answers does not pay you directly. They have partnered directly with Google on your behalf for you to earn money on advertisements displayed on Web Answers Website. Payments are done by Google once your account reaches $100 in total earnings.
Web Answers offers another great opportunity for you to earn money by answering simple questions online. If you enjoy this kind of opportunities, why not give it a trial. In addition, you do not have to worry about getting Google Adsense account since Web Answers does get one on your behalf.
However, one downside is that, since the Web Answers is fully relying on Google Adsense for revenue, if something happens and Google decides to discontinue their partnership, you will most probably end up not getting paid.
In addition, you also have to make sure you are strictly following Google guidelines on ads. Otherwise, your account may get banned anytime without further notice.
