Earn Money for your Social Media Votes

VoteSocial media traffic is a nice boost for any website or blog. However, sometimes it’s hard to come by. This will lead for people to even pay for it. If you can ‘buy’ 50 votes on digg, you are bound to get some front page action, depending on your topic.

‘Sell Your Votes’

Subvert and Profit
has come up with a system where you can buy and sell social votes. They currently have stumbles and diggs on the market.

You can buy votes for $2 each, or sell votes for $1 each. It’s usually a bundle of URLS, maybe 5. So it looks like they are making quite a profit. Maybe subvert and we profit?

vote-or-die.jpgEach time votes are available you receive and email with the URL’s to either be stumbled or dugg. Since this method violates the rules on digg (I think stumble too) they give you ways to make it look like you aren’t cheating.

To be paid you must earn $10. They just removed paypal as their method of payment and have gone with google checkout. I’ve never used it, but if I wanted to use and get paid by this website, that would be another account I would need to get. In my opinion, a paypal option is vital in this case.


You can refer people to their website and make 10% of their earnings. This wouldn’t be that much of a boost, but if you registered several people it could make payout a lot easier. I threw my referral link in this post to see if there was any money to be made with referrals.

I know there are websites where you can trade votes, which I never liked much. Selling them puts even more value on the worth of these precious votes.

At risk of getting your account banned would you participate in selling your votes? A few stumbles for a quick buck is easy, but worth it?

    I’m not sure if I agree with this or not. I did consider it but am still struggling with my stance on the matter!

    This has got to be the worst way to get traffic. I would consider this black hat marketing. If someone is going to pay for votes then they have no idea what social media truly is.

    Subvert and Profit is the reason may sites have been blocked by Digg. Be careful before you sign up for them. I think it’s a secret project by Digg to cut out the spammers.

    Um, you can buy Stumbles directly from StumbleUpon, which surely is a better way of doing that if you are going to pay money for visitors?
