    I got this from a mutualpoints email - so don't know how reliable they are.


    It works along the same lines as zotspot - you either add a search box to your browser (IE7) or use your search page and they pay you for searching.

    How do I get paid?
    Sign in to your account and tell us how you want to be paid: either into your bank account or via PayPal. We pay you every 30 days, 45 days after each month end. e.g. For searches in January we pay you in mid March.

    Funds to your friends and you can earn even more. When they sign up with us you get 10% of all the revenue we earn from their searches and even more if they pass it on!

    I'll try any new site once, well if it looks OK, as this one does.

    Here's my referral link if you care to use it.

    http://www.mysearchfunds.co.uk/apply001.asp?Friend=1040

    And a none referral link if you prefer to use that.

    I think I spoke too soon. None of my searches have shown up since 19th. I have emailed them so will let you know what happens.

    I would also be interested to know if member 1120 has done any searches? She joined through my link but has not done any searches yet. Or at least my account says she hasn't.

    I emailed them, didn't get a reply but my account was updated in a couple of hours.

    My searches track fine, but not the earnings, but as soon as I email them they update my earnings.

    Don't know if it has anything to do with it but I use Firefox so can't use their search box. I just go to "my personal" search page and search from there. All 27 searches have tracked and I'm getting 3.8p per search, well 2 of them are 3.3p.

    I use firefox as well. It didn't auto install first time round on setup, so after I went to set up on another pc and it downloaded into my search box top right all ok.

    To clarify, for those as thick as me. In the "My Control Panel" under the "My Account" section there is a link called "Use My Search Funds on anther computer". Click this link then click the "Click here to upgrade your search box" link and bob's your uncle!

    So far this site is looking good. Almost all of my searches have been for 3.6 or 3.8p

    A trick I now use is to never visit a web site via a bookmark of link on a web site, use the search instead.

    e.g. if I wanted to go to the argos web site, which is in my favourites and I could type the address into the address bar without thinking anyway, instead now I type argos into the search box and it comes up as a sponsored result on the results page. 3.6p for going to a web site I was going to anyway.

    I was going to say this really is money for nothing, but it's actually money for changing the way you search the net, of get to web sites. So instead I'll say it is money for the least effort.

    Still not convinced, lots of 0.00 for searching since 22nd December. 11p earned...will give it a while longer though.

    Personally I think they are developing an automatic system but it isn't quite working yet. Not a problem for me as I just email them saying my account hasn't updated and they do it manually. But it could become a problem if they get a lot of users.

    Yippee my account has just been updated, so far I've got £3.23 for 90 searches from 22 to 28 December.

    I think that averages at 3.6p per search, although they vary from 3.3 to 3.8p per search.

    Hi

    Signed up a few days ago (Wileycat's link, I think) and I'm definitely liking it so far.

    The amount paid seems to just change each day, rather than on any other basis I can see, is that what others are finding?


    If anyone's thinking of joining, I'd be grateful if they use my link:

    And a non-referral link if you prefer:
