Make Money by Searching Web

Scour is now paying people to search the web. Search results are fetched from Google, Yahoo and MSN. I tried the search engines with many different searches and it returned the results what other search engine returns.

How Do You Make Money?
You make money for:

  • Joining - 150 points
  • Invite friends - 250 points
  • Searching - 1 point
  • Every vote on search - 2 points
  • Every comment on search - 3 points

All the addition of points are in real time and you can see them accumulating. When you reach 6500 points you can exchange them with $25 gift visa credit card. Or, when you reach 12,500 points, you can exchange them with $50 visa credit card. Similary, 25,000 points for $100 visa card.

You can also refer friends and earn 25% of what they earn. That is really good affiliate program I would say.


So does this Scour actually pay? To be frank, I don’t know. I joined them recently. But the site looks professional. I will surely try them. There is no harm in trying. I think you should also give them a try. There is a cashout option in the control panel. I will try cashing after I make total of 6500 points. Then I will write a detailed review on the site. So, go try them.

    What the hell has this blog become? It used to be one of my favorites, and now it’s gone.

    I agree Mike, Jim seems to be wearing black hat these days. Please Jim, I know you have much more better things to share with us rather than these crap ones. I will never deny that you never helped us or you will not help in future but you even know these are kind of spammy content. If you don’t have time then just create a topic and let others to share their views, i bet many are here with lots of talent to advice others. We all can build this a most successful blog ever that was created by you.

    I just posted what I found and thought might be useful for readers. It may not be useful for some but I am sure it might be useful for others.

    Its not alway possible to create the information which is useful for “everybody” “all the time.”

    I created this post about Scour because this is a new search engine project by one of the other known search engine company (ABCSearch). I also saw their representative answering people’s problems in the forums. After seeing this only I made the post.

    And, this is a new service. So don’t just anything SPAM without knowing what it is.

  7. NoName responded on 25 Jul 2008 at 1:04 pm #

    I don’t agree here JIM.

    - There was a thread in DP on this topic but that’s been closed for some reason. I doubt mod might have gone through and found it is just one other SPAM

    - Will you be selling India famous mangoes through this site if you ever think to export that? I guess you will have your business plan and come up with a new website and might promote that from here. But these guys were doing something else before 7-8 years through this site and from no where they changed it to SEO business.

    - I will not call it a 100% SPAM but i think this is something someone like you should never advise for. You have a behemoth experience in this niche and i guess you can sense there is a fuss.

    - I don’t know what others are thinking about it but i am sensing something bad. I will never ever spare a minute with them or suggest anyone to go there.

    Request to everyone, post here if you ever try and get some success with them. Jim, you said that you are on test with them so you do remember to update this post.

    This is a “Earn Money Online” blog…. so he’s showing opportunities for people to make money online.

    He probably makes way more money from his niche sites than he does this blog…. yet he probably spends more time writing and working on stuff, and responding to comments on this blog than everything else…..

    So, what’s wrong with him trying to make some money off of this blog by promoting programs that can earn him some money.

    I am in the same situation with my blog…. i barely made any money off of it…. i started doing a few “make money” posts, and people got pissed…. to be honest,they can shove it! We are all in this to make money, yet when someone like Jim tries to make a little money, you all get pissed!

  9. Jim Karter responded on 25 Jul 2008 at 9:53 pm #

    Ok, noname heard your comments. You think they are scam. Don’t register. I think they are not and I registered. Let time prove who is right and who is wrong. Fair?

  10. NoName responded on 26 Jul 2008 at 5:32 am #


    I am loving it. If I go to work 5 days a week then i read your blog alos. I guess you will hold it till that time when you receive a check from these guys and post it here.

    @Link Building Bible

    This is called commenting for no reason. No one here said that he has problem on Jim’s earning. We are talking on an issue if this company is a real one or not. As Jim has a greater voice than many people here so I want him to say something which is good for him and better for many people here. Remember, I have no problem with anyone’s earning and I guess rest are not having. We all are here to make money not reduce others’ earning.

    @NoName - Actually…. you agreed with Mike, who said “What the hell has this blog become? It used to be one of my favorites, and now it’s gone.” Which is what I was responding to…..

    You also said “you even know these are kind of spammy content.” What else has been spam that he’s posted, since you think this is spam… What’s wrong with him posting Scour? Even so, he posted it with the following disclaimer: “So does this Scour actually pay? To be frank, I don’t know. I joined them recently. But the site looks professional. I will surely try them. There is no harm in trying.”

    Regardless…. with everything you find on the internet, use your best judgement…. if you don’t think scour will work, DON’T USE IT! You don’t have to do everything Jim says to do…. yah, most of the things he says to do are great…. regardless… you continue replying and replying, and it’s ridiculous, because you’re just complaining about a site you have zero first hand experience about…. just what people on DP have said (and people on DP are wrong way more often than they’d like to admit!)

    So you say I am posting for no reason…. you’ve had 3 posts, all attacking Jim for posting something he even provided a disclaimer with….move along.

    I can say they all are not scam but may be they scam. Possibility of scam is more so I am not going to waste my time :)

    That’s interesting, If you love searching the web you’ll make a decent amount!

  14. Carol responded on 01 Aug 2008 at 5:20 pm #

    If some peoples said that it is scam, I think I better wait for your further review Jim.

  15. Web Freak responded on 03 Aug 2008 at 7:42 pm #

    Good post, But I don’t believe that they are exploring more than google, nobody will use other search engines until google’s existence !

  16. web hosting responded on 03 Aug 2008 at 8:01 pm #

    if you don’t have a blog for making money, then why bother putting all that time into it?

  17. Waken | NetBizSimplified responded on 06 Aug 2008 at 9:23 am #

    It sounds like going to take a lot of time and effort for so little return..IMHO…

  18. jeflin responded on 09 Aug 2008 at 10:48 pm #

    Such a business model is difficult to sustain over the long run.

    The acid test will be their payments in a few months time and whether people care to use them after the payment scheme is scraped.

    nice info. I think its better to use adsense for search. Thx.

    Hello, Thats true they won’t get that much searches that google and yahoo, No matter how much they they pay

  22. Carol responded on 02 Sep 2008 at 6:28 pm #

    I finally decide to register and start earning money by searching. But I must admit that my fingers are still Google addicted. Always type Goo…whenever do searching.

  23. Extreme metal blog responded on 18 Sep 2008 at 10:06 am #

    i dont think this is a good deal as it will take a lotta time to get that 6500 points and there is always a possibility of spam…..neone there who has got money from there????

    thanks, good way to earn money, please teach me more sir… you are the best :-)

  31. scott responded on 09 Nov 2008 at 7:01 pm #

    I just got started using this and reviewed it on my blog. I don’t see any reason why Jim shouldn’t write about this on his blog, it seems perfectly legitimate and isn’t a spammy way to make money. Of course the best way to maximize your profits would be to advertise their program as if it were an affiliate product. The more subaffiliates you get, the more money you can make. Since it’s a product people ‘make money from’ rather than ’spend money on’ it shouldn’t be to hard to advertise!

    I want to let the world know my experience on s martappsportal,com.
    I’m not one of their marketing team, I’m a simple member. I paid $39 to register to it, after 2 days, my
    account was activated and I started to work. First month, I won $1750. Now I earn on average $3150 monthly.

    Thanks, I just signed up at this site and I was looking around for if anyone actually got their payments :) But like you said, there’s no harm in trying. :)

    It’s cool, just like Swagbucks.. I’m in love with them!

    Keep up the great work.
