As well as completing surveys I have stumbled across many other ways to make money online in the past few years and one of those opportunities includes being paid just to click on ads. Sounds so easy right, you click on an ad and get paid, however its not always that simple and as rewarding as it may look.
Today I will be bringing you a Wordlinx.com review, this is a PTC site that I have come across recently so I thought I'd check them out to see whether they are a legitimate opportunity to make money with online.
Make sure to stay to the end as I will be covering areas such as the complaints, why I find them to be either legit or a scam and most importantly whether or not the company is worth the invested time.
Wordlinx was founded back in 2003 and as been active ever since so they are fairly established and do have a history of paying out.
You may or may haven't come across a PTC site but basically what that stands for is 'Pay To Click' and is the type of site that Wordlinx falls under. Very few sites still pay members to click on ads as that type of advertising as gone down in popularity over the years.
With sites such as Clixsense who were known for paying people to click on ads but have recently removed this opportunity from there site and now just operate like a GPT (Get Paid To) site
Its easy to work out why PTC isn't very fond of and that is because people click on the ads to get paid through a site like Wordlinx. From a business point of view its not great as these clicks are for the most part low quality and won't contribute much of a positive effect to your business.
I have signed up to many sites in the past including survey panels and PTC sites with Wordinx I found that the registration is one of the shortest I have seen. They only required me to put in my email address and that was enough to make an account, I was up and ready within 30 seconds.
When I signed up I was given 1000 share points and $0.50 which was credited to my balance as a reward for signing up.
As well as clicking on ads there are a few other ways you can make money on the site which I will go over how each work here.
Paid To Click On Ads
Just as it sounds for every ad you click on you will get paid a certain amount of points. As this action requires little effort the payout is very low, and you can expect to receive $0.005 per ad you click on. You will have to look at it for at least 15 seconds before moving on to the next ad.
Surveys And Offers
Wordlinx also offers the opportunity for you to make money by completing surveys and also by doing offers. They have a host of third party offer walls which have different ways for you to to make money. These payout between $0.25 and $5 per task
The other notable way to make money is through inviting your friends to come and join the site. This is probably the best way to earn money on this site as the other ways I have mentioned have a low earning potential. The referral program does seem complicated at first but all you need to know is that every time one of your friend signs up and makes money or buys a membership you will receive a cut of these earnings.
Once you have made $10 you can then receive a payment via PayPal. In order to receive this you will need to add your PayPal email address to your account.
These will be sent and paid within 3 days of request. If you would like to advertise you can alternatively use your earnings to do so.
When I look at any site I always check how long one as been in operation, this is because sites are closing and opening all the time. This one however has been in existence since 2003 so as been active for over 15 years which is a good sign.
If there is another thing I do like is that they do pay out via cash and even better through PayPal. You don't have to worry about whether they pay as they are legit and there are a number of payment proofs online, which is always good to see as it means they aren't a scam.
The only issue you will need to worry about is how you will reach that threshold consistently as from looking at whats available to you it may take you months before you see any money.
As expected the amount of money you can make with this kind of site is very low. In fact making a few dollars from this site in particularly may not even be possible depending on how you go about making money on the site.
For example if you take the part where I mentioned each click pays $0.005, this means in order to get to $10 you will need to click on an ad and wait for 15 seconds min 1000 times to get paid. That's a time consuming process that doesn't reward well.
Has someone who has tried PTC traffic in the past to see what it was all about a few years ago I have to admit I am not a fan of the idea. When I tried it the traffic I was receiving was all of low quality, all my visitors would come on my site stay for the same time and then leave. This all happened as they were all trying to earn with the site. This meant that there was no engagement as people were on an off in an instant making it quite pointless.
Wordlinx is legit and does offer a genuine opportunity to make money online. However with that question answered the only one to ask is whether its really worth your time. When you consider that you are making only half a cent per click I wouldn't regard this as an opportunity that is worth your time.
Instead I would check out these other extra income sites that I have reviewed that all offer plenty of ways to make money online and overall are better then what Wordlinx,com have to offer.
