Don't work for money, let money work for you.
Recently I was interested in the concept of earning passive income online.
Passive income is an income received on a regular basis, with little effort required to maintain it. - Wikipedia
After searching online, I found "webanswers.com", which is in the category of "crowd sourcing knowledge sharing" sites. You can answer questions from anyone, and earn incomes from advertisements on the pages with your answers.
To start on WebAnswers.com is fairly easy.
1. Register with webanswers.com and answer 10 questions
Hint: only after you answer 10 questions, you are then allowed to link your google adsense account.
2. Open and link your Google AdSense account
Hint: it took me 2 days to have my Google AdSense account approved to be linked to my webanswers account.
3. Answer more questions, regularly
Once you answer is selected as the best answer for the question, you will start earning advertisement income from that page. To be specific, you will earn 60% from each click on the google advertisements on your page. So the more best answers you have, the better your earnings are.
Better yet, even when no correct answer is chosen for a question, you will still have the chance to earn advertisement income thanks to the algorithm built-in to allow advertisement rotation for each participant of the question.
I belive webanswers.com is best for start earning passive income online.
