Is Blingo.com A Scam? Can You Get Paid To Search?
Blingo.com is search engine powered by Google.com that randomly rewards it's users for making searches about anything. Here's how it works you visit Blingo.com and enter a search term. Blingo.com then provides you the google results of the terms you entered. If you've been selected by Blingo.com you will be rewarded cash, movie tickets, cars, music and much more.
The more you use blingo.com to perform your searches the more chances you have to get rewards. And if that wasn't sweet enough when you refer your others and if they happen to win a new car for performing a search, you win the same prize! So obviously it's in your best interest to refer as many people as possible.
How Can They Afford To This?
Well like everything on the web, Blingo.com is supported by ads. So when you perform a search on their branded google search page, Google pays them a portion of the profits earned by the ads you find in the search results. Blingo.com in turns takes some of this money and shares it with its users in the form of prizes or cash rewards. Because there are only a set number of winners per day they never pay out more than they are making. And that's pretty much how they do it!
When you visit their website they actually provide you with a list of recent winners and what they won and how long ago. When you see this list it kind of builds up the excitement that you could be next. For all we know this could just be a marketing ploy or some fancy script. I haven't won yet so I can't tell for certain if this is real or not.
So is Blingo.com a scam? I can't really say either way. Based on what I know of their business model, it makes total sense and can be feasible for sometime. But since I don't know anyone personally that has won and I've yet to win, I will have to re-visit this review.
Do I recommend giving Blingo.com a try? Sure do! It costs you nothing and why not give yourself a chance to win a million dollars or some free movie ticktets for a search you would've done anyway. The other reason I still recommend it is bacause they use Google.com has their search engine so it's not like you would be using a different inferior search engine. So make the switch and use blingo.com for your searches, it may end up paying off!
Update: As of 10.22.07, I won $50 with Blingo.com because one of the people I referred won $50! I didn't even have to do anything! That's just wonderful if you ask me. It was the easiest $50 I've ever made. So blingo.com is real! I have no complaints here. I don't think blingo.com is a fraud or some type of rip-off. I am living proof!
