    Lycos affiliate scheme

    I recently found an affiliate scheme which took off no end.
    Usaully I had earnt about 1 a day (about $1.50) which was not really good enough.

    www.Lycos.com pay 0.02 for every search. I found a way that I could make the users of www.cheatextreme.com search using Lycos.

    I simply created a web page that was specifiaclly created to raise money. I achieved a high ranking in google by including the keywords. In my case - " Pro Evolution Soccer 3 cheats, PES 3 cheats"

    I told the users once they had reached my website to search for the "Pro Evolution Soccer 3 cheats" using Lycos. There were no cheats for "Pro Evolution Soccer 3 cheats" on my web page so they really had no other option but to try Lycos. This has now raised profit to in excess of 10 ($12) every day. As I am only 14 this a lot of pocket money for me and felt well pleased but a little decieveing towards my visitors.
    but never the less its money
    this is a single web page on my web site that is making $8 from the lycos scheme :

    Is the Lycos program dependent on search keyword? Or is it just 2 cents per search regardless of what they search for?

    I have been sending 2-4,000 searches a day to searchfeed through my literature site and I only make $20 a day for that.

    Notice also that's 0.02 GBP. Not $0.02

    Still, with 2-4k searches, that would be a considerable increase on your current earnings compared with searchfeed !!

    HI everyone, just a quick question. I'm living outside UK does that mean i won't get paid for this ad network? And how do i set up a UK bank account if i'm not a resident in UK? Does tradedoubler only wire payment to your bank account? Thanks for replying.

    It seems you can only take part if you're in the UK.

    I signed up, and I've made 0.02p so far! Eat THAT, Chris!!

    2p a search isn't bad, it will be different if it was 2p a clickthru though. I think I may also sign up to this program and give it ago.

    Does it also have a referral program where I can refer other affiliates and earn a percentage of their earnings?

    TradeDoubler does I think. But not the lycos thing itself.
