Do You Remember the Mylot Fad?
- 5 Comment
Mylot was a huge blogging fad, it seemed everyone joined and promoted it. It was a great thing for bloggers, because commission was easy. I made about $30 with little effort before my earnings fell off. I still have 30 cents pending.
Mylot was a huge blogging topic about a year ago. Every make money blogger was heavily promoting it as the best new thing. The last time that I wrote an article about Mylot was Feb 2007!
What is Mylot?
For those who don’t know, Mylot is a huge community with 127,478 members. It is basically a souped up forum with a little bit of Yahoo Answers mixed in. You can start any topic, ask a question or just simply make a comment or observation.
For each thread started or reply, you earn money. The money is small and I’m not exactly sure the algorithm. However for popular topics and replies you are essentially paid more. Once you reach $10 you are eligible for payment.
The real money is made with getting a bunch of referrals.
Mylots Referral Program
When you refer someone to Mylot you basically will earn 25% of whatever the person you referred earns.
A great feature is that you get to see how much your referral earns you each month. My referrals are no longer making me any money, I referred them over a year ago!
Promoting your Blog on Mylot
I just had remembered I made a few posts in Mylot and of course left my my URL. Checking my statcounter I noticed a few referrals from Mylot.
The blogging section isn’t very popular at Mylot, but there is tons of opportunity to promote your blog whatever the niche is.
Mike of Mikes Money Making Mission did this in a great way. Mylot was one of his biggest traffic referrals. The best thing is you are basically paid to promote your own site (since you are paid per post).
It does take a bit of effort, but if you are on daily for a few minutes it can be well worth it.
