enough), very slow to pay if you get check at all.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ GET PAID FOR SURF THE WEB FACTS AND GET PAID FOR SURF HISTORY ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(As I've experienced it as owner of GetPaid4Surf.com)
Getting paid to surf isn't a new concept on the Internet. During the dot com boom the Internet was rapid
with companies promising riches on the web simply by surfing the Internet with an ad toolbar on your
screen. Everyone hopped on the band wagon and starting to use and promote these paid for surf or paid
to read e-mail programs. Many paid out very well initially, but then eventually the income generated by
these programs began to dwindle. Companies once promising 50 cents an hour could only promise
pennies. The stock market tanked and eventually all, but only a few paid to surf companies survived.
The business model remains to this day, but the demand for these programs isn't as nearly as high as it
was at its peek with the collapse of AllAdvantage.com. I've seen companies come and go. Many
companies that I've promoted on GetPaid4Surf.com I've generated income with, but have failed to pay
me. The ones remaining especially the pay to surf programs marked "editors choice" I feel are the best
the Internet has to offer.
Pay to surf programs are evolving on a monthly basis and I vow to continue to post the best companies
at the forfront of these new trends. Although only a fraction of the Interest that these programs once
generated exists today I still am fascinated by making money from the Internet. For this reason I still
operate this web site today.
Where have all the paid to surf programs gone? Is this a faulty business model? It seems they are a
dying breed on the Internet. If you disagree with this statement and have suggestions for new programs
shoot me an e-mail I'd like to hear from you. I'll even promote your referral link for a week on
GetPaid4Surf.com if I like the program enough to post it.
There seems to be a paid to surf revival on the internet with these paid to surf or auto surf programs.
They are basically traffic exchange programs where an advertiser pays money to advertise on the site to
their visitors who sign up to view ads. One site called Paid-Surf pays 1% daily to its visitors for 365 days.
Paid-Surf is able to pay their members by collecting advertising fees and off site investments. I haven't
listed more auto surf traffic exchange programs on GetPaid4Surf.com because many are scams. Some
are ponzi schemes. Many auto surf programs pay out way more to visitors than they could ever hope to
earn from advertising revenue or investments hence the reason they are labeled ponzi schemes.
If you would like to suggest a new company for my consideration or link exchange e-mail me: daniel @
getpaid4surf.com. I believe and of course I'm just slightly bias that GetPaid4Surf.com is one of the best
paid for surf review directory sites on the Internet. The only problem is GetPaid4Surf.com isn't #1 yet on
all the terms I optimize on and I'd like to change that! If you like my site and you want to improve this
site's web rank or improve your paid for surf related web site's ranking I'd like to trade links with you.
Please send your link exchange requests to the e-mail above. Also, if you would like to advertise on
GetPaid4Surf.com I'll post your link for $4.99 month. Or if you would like to advertise on any other of my
web sites 9malls.com, CashSherpa.com please contact me.
Other paid to surf resources on the Internet:
If you've searched for anything online in the past few years you probably know About.com is a great
resource for all sorts of information. They seem to have researched almost everything known to man.
They have even research paid to surf programs and offer a comprehensive list of the top paid to surf
programs. Some programs listed on About's page I do not have listed on GetPaid4Surf.com. They may
be reviewed and added in the future in the mean time visit here for more information.
A newly busted business model:
I had never heard of 12dailypro.com until a few weeks ago. I guess they guaranteed a 44% return on
your investment in 12 days. Sounds too good to be true? Yes... But that doesn't mean it wasn't
immensely popular with the site raising 50 million from more than 300,000 investors. With this kind of
money being poured into one web site the authorities got curious and the SEC shut this ponzi scheme
down. Read more about 12dailypro.com here.
Some questions I've been asked:
1) How long have I been receiving checks from various paid to surf companies that I have listed on
Some companies I've been receiving checks for years, some since 1999. Such as: Cashsurfers or Spedia.
MyPoints is probally the most legit company I have listed, they are very professional. The paid to read
business model tends to be much more profitable than paid to surf.
2) How did I become interested in the "paid to surf" industry?
The Internet in general fascinates me, it creates new business models and opportunities out of thin air. I
like to keep up on these trends, such as the "Randomizers" which sprung up around 2004. Some of these
randomizers have made their members a lot of money.
Letter to GetPaid4Surf.com:
I just visited your website and wanted to tell you how impressed I am with the professionalism! :-)
I've been making money online since 1999 and have been doing PTR for over a year. Only one thing I
feel I should tell you... you have two well-known scams listed on your Getpaid4surf page - CashFiesta
and Spedia. Both of these will not pay members, they have been scamming people since 1999 (that I
know of - perhaps longer) (Just for the record Spedia.com has paid GetPaid4Surf.com once) Their modus
operandi is to let members view the advertising, raking in money for them - then when a member tries
to cash out, they're sent an email telling them that they "cheated" and won't be paid. But for some
reason... they refuse to explain exactly HOW the member cheated. Do a search on google "cashfiesta
scam?" and view the many, many results from people who have been cheated by these theives.
- Thank you Caroline for the information! This above information is one's opinion and is not necessarily
the opinion of GetPaid4Surf.com you should do your own research before signing up for any programs
listed on GetPaid4Surf.com. GetPaid4Surf.com tries its best to pick the best companies for its site, but
companies change and go through many different changes. So an organization might be great when I
signed up for it years ago, but in the future it might become a dog. I will post any information sent to me
on GetPaid4Surf.com and promote a link of your choice in exchange for the content that I deam relevant
to GetPaid4Surf.com. So if you have any information or ideas please send to daniel @ getpaid4surf.com.
Letter to GetPaid4Surf.com:
The info you give on your site is just great, thanks! The one thing I find a bit frustrating about
GetPaid4Surf.com is Cashsurfers.com being strictly a US/UK program. If CashSurfers.com were to
change into a global program that would be great.
-Thank you Madhu I too wish that all program were global, but this obviously isn't the case.
GetPaid4Surf.com receives many visitors specifically from India and pretty much ever were else around
the world. If all programs were to become global overnight GetPaid4Surf.com would be even more
popular than it already is. Listen up all paid to surf business owners make your programs international
there's a strong demand for it!
Letter to GetPaid4Surf.com
Two days back I happened to see your email in a website. I also came to know that you have the best
knowledge about genuine paying autosurf websites. I did autosurf with many web sites for the last 5
months, but none of them paid me anything. Some of the web sites already vanished. I am an Indian,
retired and I need to make some income to meet my growing expenses. I have spent lot of time in the
computer with these web sites for nothing. So I request you to kindly let me know atlest 10 websites of
autosurf who will definitely pay me if I work.Your help in this matter will be of great use to me. Simply
as a senior person in age, I wish you all the best. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks!
-This letter was from a visitor in Bangalore India. Thank you by the way for all the support for
GetPaid4Surf.com from India sometimes it seems I have more international visitors than US visitors. It's
nice to know the information I have listed on GetPaid4Surf.com can be useful to someone. You are not
alone with paid to surf companies not paying you I know this all too well. One thing I've found that
works is if a company isn't paying you first send them a e-mail, if that doesn't work which it usually
doesn't try to find a phone number. Most of the time a phone number won't be listed on their site if it is
call their customer service department. It's much easier to get someone to do something if you talk to
them in person. If there isn't a phone number on the offending web site search the WHOIS database for
the owner of the domain name. In the Google search box type in "WHOIS" then put in the companies
domain name. If WHOIS doesn't work for you there is another online resource called Alexa.com just
enter the domain name into this web site and you'll usually find the companies contact information here
as well. OK, so once you get someone from the company on the line or in your e-mail explain to them
that you haven't been paid and more often than not they will send you a check. If you're really serious
about getting paid contact the US Better Business Bureau and complain to them about the company. I
can't recommend 10 auto surf sites, but I will recommend two. They have paid me on a consistent basis
and have had higher payouts than other companies. I don't know if they pay international however. The
two companies I'd recommend are MyPoints.com and SendMoreInfo.com. To tell you the truth I'm pretty
much done with paid to surf companies that only will pay you if you if you search with an ad bar on the
computer screen. I think that this was once the best paid to surf business model, but in my opinion it has
- GetPaid4Surf.com Blog Notes
- Making lots of money in life isn't just about making it, it's about saving what you keep as well. I found a
blog that I'd like to share with GP4S visitors called Dual Income No Kids. The blog covers issues
regarding making money as well as saving it.
I think the best idea to come out of the get paid for surf business model in a long time is a company
called Winzy.com. It's a search engine that pays you to use it.
- I new program that I really like and is well run is called Winzy.com. This program really is one of the
best paid to search, paid to surf programs that I've ever seen. The search engine is very good, the results
I'd say are better than ASK.com or at least on par with ASK. I've already won a $5 gift certificate for
Amazon.com through one of my referrals. That's one of the nice things about the program when you're
affiliate win you win and there is no limit of how much you can win per month. So yeah, please visit
Winzy.com and sign up Winzy is a great search engine and paid to search program. The banner for the
program is on the top of this page.
- I was noticing with the new paid to surf programs, the new ones are nothing like the old programs. The
old programs always seemed so amateur and you would be lucky to ever see a check from these
companies. Now the paid to surf programs look highly professional, the owners look like they
meticulously thought out their business models. It seemed back in the old days of the internet just having
a web site with a concept was enough to impress someone. Now the internet has matured, its users are
much more advanced; it takes a lot more than just a web site to impress the new generation of users. I
believe the paradigm has shifted where once the Internet was a trusting community of small grass root
type sites to the new paradigm of a corporate internet. If your site doesn't look professional or
"corporate" as I call it now matter how good your idea no one will take you seriously. The internet now
mirrors the legal and structured real world instead of the subculture it once was. I think it's sad in a way
because it shuts out the little guy, I think with any new market (if you look at the Internet as a market)
the more in matures the more money factors into the equation to gain exposure and market share. Just
some thoughts let me know what you think. I enjoy reading your e-mails!
- Paid to surf as a business model continues despite its frequent setbacks. I noticed that the best
programs right now are hands down paid to read programs. I'm actually making decent money with
InBoxDollars.com, my favorite paid to read program. In addition I'm really liking a new business model
where users are paid to look at a web site for a set amount of time. The newest program added to
GetPaid4Surf.com following this new trend is TitanClicks. I have purchased advertising from this
company so when you join part of the money you will be receiving is mine.
- Avoid the paid to surf scams with GPTBoycott.com. For the last 7 years this site has been devoted to
helping its visitors avoid "get-paid-to..." scams online. Rob sent me an e-mail suggesting this company.
I'm doing some updating today January 17th 2008. I've been looking around the Internet lately and I'm
realizing that pay-per.....whatever is alive and well. Getting paid on the Internet is different now that just
surfing on the Internet with an ad toolbar on your screen. Getting paid online now included uploading
videos on sites like Revver.com and MetaCafe, getting paid to write blog entries at PayPerPost.com, and
getting paid to write comprehensive reviews on companies at ePinions.com. For a while I thought paid
per.... on the Internet was dead, but I'm now realizing more and more that's it's a stronger more
legitimate business model than ever. It's a great time to be living right now. People all over the world
can equally benefit from this continuing trend. It no longer matters where one lives. I know this is an old
argument, but I think we are only seeing the beginning of this idea. Moving towards a one world
economy where everything is connected. If you would like to learn more about this idea I'd recommend
a book that I just finished reading called The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century by
Thomas L. Friedman. I'm also interested in the one world economy because I now contract out web
development with a company in India. As always I enjoy reading everyone's e-mails and suggestions.
Please visit this site. BeenPaid.com lists paid for surf sites that have actually paid. It's a rating system for
this industry. Check it out!
I've removed the paid to surf programs that are no longer paying off the main home page. If the program
is on the home page now I believe in the company.
Getting ranked better on Google!!! I'm really happy about that. I'm glad my web site is finally getting
more visitors. I believe my paid to surf site has more current and honest information than any of the
other BS paid to surf sites out there. Trust me most of the other paid to surf sites don't have a clue what
they are talking about. All they want is a quick referral.
It seems all around the world now, starting in the United States, economies are weakening. I remember
back in 2000 when the Internet bubble burst virtually all paid to surf companies went out of business. It
will be interesting to see how paid to surf companies weather this new economic storm. The paid to surf
genres of web sites is already an anemic industry in which light patches of economic weakness tends to
lead to bankruptcy with a quickness. The winds are picking up, how many companies will get blown
