Internet is one of the greatest inventions by humans after the invention of computers. The World Wide Web is really the largest web of activities that is going on 24x7 and 365 days an year. It is something that will never stop growing because there is no limit to knowledge and ideas. Information keeps flowing over the internet, information that is important, information that is useful and more streams of information are there presently operating and occupying various portions of the net. Hard to believe it all started with an idea and grew up to a stage where now people don't need to move while doing business internationally. I can sell my phone to any part of this country or buy another one from somewhere far away and get it delivered at my doorstep.
I can have a shop online on ebay and sell and buy various products. I can now order my pizza online with a few clicks on my laptop through internet. Nearly everything from the tiniest to the gigantous now resides and dwells over the net. I don't need to go to a store to check out various clothes or accessories; I can surf for them over the net freely and for as long as I want. Internet has made our lives a lot easier and lazier ofcourse.
But what I'm concerned about is Internet and money.
How to earn online?
This question has been buzzing the minds of millions of people since the beginning of web. It took people a while to adjust but looking at the present scenario of India, I can say nearly everyone is familiar that internet can be associated with money and income.
Doing business online is not so difficult now and every now and then we find various marketing ads flashing in different patterns, going on singing praises about a certain product or a particular website.
In this article and some related articles, I'll shed some light on the various methods of earning money online.
I'll answer the question, how to earn online and most important of all, I'll show you all how to earn online in India.
Ways of earning money
There are numerous ways of earning money; I see websites overflowing with infinite lists of ways of earning money online. There are legal ways of earning money, like what I'm doing right now is also earning me money. I'm not doing much, just using my minute knowledge of internet and the basic skill of typing while sitting on my bed with my laptop and you can see I am earning money online right now!
Then ofcourse, there is the illegal way, the way full of lies and deceits. With the advent of net, frauds also took birth over the net. Scammers arrived and started looting people by fooling them. You can't seriously act against someone who is talking to you from a place where there is night while you are sitting in the sun.
Internet provided a great platform for communicating across thousands of miles without any barriers but its upto people, what they use this communication for. If I tell you that I can get your money doubled in two days 90 % people will ask a lot of questions the rest will ask less and if I'm able to convince some of you that I live in India while I actually live outside and disappear with your money, you won't be able to do anything.
Illegal money earning opportunities are seen every day, every minute a new scam website comes up with countless fake promises. Most people fall prey to so many sites each day and there is no stopping this and yeah quite clearly, people are earning money but it's no different than scamming a shopkeeper or looting a bank. It'll give you money but it isn't right. Online fraudulent activities are now called cyber-crimes and it has been observed that Indians are one of the most prone to these. Maybe we are far behind in terms of awareness of internet and its functionalities; we just believe in the impossible much easily than the rest.
Its high time people start realizing the real income opportunities that the internet provides so that they don't give in to the false temptations and understand what's the right and legit way of earning online and what's not.
So earning is possible over the net. The question still remains, how to earn online. I have mentioned a few ways of earning money online through various resources here on ISC all of which are linked to this one, so read on and click the links within for detailed summary of all the under-mentioned ways of earning money.
Listed below are some of the non-fraudulent, fully legal and free ways to earn money with no investments, no buying of any stuff and no indulging in any kinds of scamming activities.
Earn money from ebay
Ebay is like an electronic shopping complex that is maintained by the site which is a worldwide famous site and has an Indian branch for sellers and buyers of India. People earn profits everyday by selling tiny batteries as well as fully furnished home décor stuff like, furniture. People put up a commodity on this site and interested buyers buy from this site if the price suits them financially. The site doesn't ask for any commission, just a nominal listing fee that has to be paid by each seller and there is an option for displaying a sponsored listing as well which is costlier but not necessary.
Its quite simple to earn money online through ebay. My free online money making guide on ebay might be of use to you, so do check it out.
Earn money using google adsense
A very famous and absolutely free way to earn money online is through google adsense.
Following these simple steps anyone can know how to earn money from google adsense:
• Make a website or publish a blog.
• Apply for a google adsense account through your site or blog.
• Wait for approval.
• Once approved ads will show up on your blog or website.
• Wait for your earnings to reach $100 and redeem a cheque.
Its as simple as it gets but the most difficult part is the second step. If your blog or website is active and you have many visitors daily, accumulating $100 won't take much time but if not then you might not even get an approved adsense account.
Check this article about how to earn money through adsense for more full detailed specifications required to earn using google adsense and start earning this instant.
Earn money by clicking ads
Another very popular and easy as well as free way of earning money is through paid to click websites like Neobux and clixsense. I've written a separate article for earning through clixsense and neobux.
Earning on paid to click sites is quite easy as we don't have to do any work except for clicking on ads and waiting a few seconds for the cash to be added to our account. Although it may seem easy but making a lot of cash isn't possible without investment even in paid to click sites like these. The basic investment that you have to make is for a premium membership at these sites. Premium members get more than double the ads and many more benefits as compared to standard members.
Neobux allows us to rent referrals while there is no such system as that on clixsense. So we have to pay to rent on neobux and then, they do the work while we earn. Although clixsense doesn't provide referral renting, it still is better as you don't have to invest anything in it. You can earn better at clixsense than at neobux without spending a rupee. With the introduction of free clixsense tasks, any member who is willing to do some extra work, that too non-typing work, can start earning free dollars in a few hours. If you are fast enough, you can do 300 tasks a day like those top performers of clixsense.
Earn money via odesk jobs
One of the best methods of earning money is ofcourse by doing a job. But having an online job, that's something everyone dreams of. There is nothing more comfortable than your own home and if I ask you to do something, for which you will be paid, while sitting at your place and by just spending some time over your laptop or desktop, won't it be great?
So, here is another way of earning money online by doing odesk jobs. Odesk provides you with an opportunity of finding work as per your taste and interest online. Just register with them and browse through thousands of jobs, all of them free to join and you also can earn a good amount just by helping someone who is willing to pay for it. Doing an online job is much better than all the above ways of earning money as I consider it to be the best way of earning online. Plus it's absolutely free to join as well. You apply for a job, listen to the job specifications from the employer, mostly you are asked to provide a proof of your capability or experience. Writers can be asked for an original sample of their work and if the employer finds that you are, what you say you are, enjoy, because you were just hired to work for a job online for free.
Its safe and you get paid for your hardwork for a job of your own choice nonetheless. So, you got nothing to lose if you are capable enough. Go and get hired now and start to earn online from Odesk
These all are well researched methods that I've tried and experimented with and the ones I'm sure pay you money online. However, there are many other methods too. I've assembled a list of the possible and legit ways of earning online.
Earn money online by blogging
Although the best way to earn money from your blog is through google adsense, but still there are many other sites also that provide ads on your blog and you get paid in a similar manner. Some of them include kontera revenue sharing, infolinks, and many more. Although, google will pay you the most among the others but still any extra source of income should always be welcomed.
Earn money online from GPT sites
Similar to Paid to click sites GPT sites are those that pay you for dong certain things (that's why the name 'Get Paid To') on these. Although I've never had any interest in these, the main reason being that almost all these sites require us to complete certain offers that mostly ask us to join other sites or complete certain surveys and although this whole bluff appears too easy, finding a survey in India is quite difficult as we don't qualify for most of them.
So, this method is not suited for all categories of people but certain individuals can actually qualify for these and earn.
Earn money online on Viewbestads
I joined Viewbestads (or VBA) last year and it appeared quite genuine. Although I didn't give it proper time but few months back I again checked this site out and it was really much better than earlier. Many new sections had come up and its stats of paying have also been increased quite tremendously. So, I decided to give it a shot; but to my utter disappointment, this was not as I expected. Earning online on VBA requires you to atleast give in one hour of your time daily. They provide activity bonus for this and although it is quite low but still you are getting it for free. Its quite good in the respect that there is knowledgeable stuff on VBA. You get paid to read the latest happenings around the globe and playing a General Knowledge Quiz of 25 questions. Other features include hourly contests and much more. Although, if you really want to earn on this site quickly, you have to stay on this for nearly whole day, play every hourly contest, and most of all, the maximum points are provided for completing genuine Indian offers that we can surely complete.
In addition to all this, it's an Indian site just like ISC with its office in Rajasthan area, I guess, and it provides a payout at Rs 1200.
Overall, I like this site but after sometime you might get bored doing the same repetitive stuff again and again. Also, the earnings are quite slow, so you need to be patient.
Anyhow, it still is a site worth joining. Click to join VBA
Although I know of many more ways to earn online, this article can't cover all of them. I've tried my best to add the most genuine and paying sites in this article and the related articles on How to earn money online. I'll surely like to add some more sites and stuff for all those who are interested in earning online and want to know more about the ways to earn money online.
Your comments and feedback is most welcome and if you have some way of earning money that you want to share, go ahead and if you have any doubt regarding some earning opportunity that you are confused about, I will be more than willing to check it out for you.

I appreciate your desire to know more about the possible ways of earning money online. I'll try my best to write another valuable article on this topic. ISC is not a platform for discussing ways to earn money through different websites but there are certain sites which are like ISC and I'll surely like to write about these rare opportunities in a spam-free manner.

|Sir, you mentioned www.viewbestads.com in the article. Are you really get paid from the website. Can I go through this website. Is it 100% trusted website or not.|
|Author: Akshay Mahajan 03 Jul 2012||Member Level: Gold Points : 3|
|Yes it is a trusted website for sure. The reason is that in addition to the payment proofs they have provided of cheques, they have been around since two years and a scam site doesn't has such a long life.|
Also, its policies are quite simple and transparent just like ISC, making it 100% legit.
Although I prefer ISC over all the rest of these sites because earning here is quick and easy while you need to be regular at sites like viewbestads for a long time to actually reach such a high payout. ISC will provide you with a payout in the first month only, if you work properly.
I cashed out on 1st of June and the site has asked for a time of 60 days before my cheque reaches me. I'll keep you informed if I get paid.

|Compared to PTC websites, Mylot is the best website to earn more. In 15 days i earned one dollar. In PTC websites to earn one doller it takes 3 months minimum. Know you think where you want to spend more time. Minimum you can earn 0.01 doller in one day if you responded to atleast two discussions in mylot. The more you participate the more you can earn. Mylot is a social network website -|

@ Mr Pilli
I appreciate your concern but you replied on my other post that you have earned 5 dollars doing clixsense tasks and still you are contradicting your statement here. I don't really opt for PTC sites when trying to earn money online but its true that they provide a great medium for the same. Of all the above methods, they are really the easiest and I have earned two 10 dollar payouts by just doing clixsense tasks only and that too within the time frame of two months and with least efforts.
So, I can gladly quote my example against your complain.
Also, everything aside, odesk can pay you 100 bucks within an hour if you find the right job and complete it. So earning online is quite easy and free.

I am not telling PTC Sites are bad, i am recommending Mylot along with PTC websites. PTC Sites are good to earn but it take lot of months to earn. But in mylot if you concentrate more you can earn 10 dollars in two to three month. I did not receive money from mylot but still i am also working in it. Recently i received my payout from donkeymails. waiting for my first payout from clixsense.
You article is nice giving lot of information. Thanks.

I have personally used these sites and Top Up my cellphone many times but it takes more then an hour to get 10 bucks recharge.
These sites pay you for sending free sms as well there is a limit of sms but the best site is
These are good Websites as per my knowledge but patience is very important in all online earning sites.
