There was a time when the internet was like the wild wild west. Sites were popping up left and right but it was hard to find these sites. Then directories came about which tried to categorize these websites to make them easily accessible to the growing population of internet users. Eventually directories developed into search engines. They eventually grew up and evolved to one of the best which we all know is Google.com.
Now I'm a big fan of Google, I think they offer amazing services and sincerely want to provide the best user experience. They also happen to help pay our bills so that might be another reason I got love for them. lol In any event when someone creates a great service or product there is always some bozo that thinks they can do it better. Sometimes they do. But most of the times they fail miserably.
Well in light of this fact, I would like to introduce you to another search engine on the scene, Weegy.com. (No disrespect intended.) They don't claim to be better than Google which is good. Because everyone that claims that they will be better than Google has been forced to eat those words and their company flopped.
What The Heck is a Weegy.com?
No, it's not one of those board games to communicate with the dead. And no, it shouldn't be confused with what your older brother subjected you to which was literally a pain in the ass. Weegy.com is basically a search engine that is partially powered by human experts like you and I. People text Weegy.com questions, and the experts immediately send back the answer from their computers.
Personally I think there is definitely some value in this service because there are some rare instances where Google just isn't cutting it. This usually happens because of the way we may enter a search term or phrase. Or it could be just be the fact that Google may not have an answer (although rare). So chatting with a real person would be very helpful in those situations.
How To Make Money With Weegy.com
If you haven't already figured it out, you can make money as one of the Weegy experts that answers the questions sent to Weegy.com. To be a Weegy expert is pretty simple. You fill out the online form by clicking here. And you're pretty much in.
Once you're ready to work you'll be sent questions when Weegy.com artificial intelligence can't come up with the answer or has exhausted it's on answers. When this happens you're forwarded the question to continue the session with the searcher. You are given 15 seconds to answer. You're only paid .20 a conversation. It's not going to support your family but you know our saying. Some money with multiple streams of income is better than no money you make searching for work at home jobs. Like most non-traditional work at home opportunities there is a minimum payment amount required before you get your first check which is $20.00. If you don't meet that for a given month, it will be carried over to the following month until you reach the minimum. Then you are paid via paypal.
In most cases, conversations take less than a few seconds. Chances are you'll be able to find the answers others may not because you probably know a better way of entering the search term in Google or you can visit something like wikipedia.com and get the answer. So it's pretty simple work if you're web savvy.
That's pretty much it in a nutshell.
Is Weegy.com a scam?
Not from what I can tell. People have received their payments, although slowly. My concern is that some other companies have tried offering the same type of service (ChaCha) and it never really caught on. Although it's tried to re-invent itself and still employs many work at home seekers. Yahoo also offers an answer service like this but no one gets paid for it. You do get cool points or something. But unlike MySurvey's point system, the points can't be used for cash. You can see why I never covered Yahoo's opportunity.
Google did have a paid answer program as well. But eventually they shut it down. So my feeling is that if a billion dollar company like Google.com failed to make it work then chances are others won't be able to sustain it. However I could be wrong and would be happy too. In the mean time you might as well get on board and make some money while Weegy.com is still around.
By this service reminds me of the Amazon Mechanical Turk opportunity we covered a few months ago. If you're smart, you can just couple this Weegy opportunity with the Amazon Mechanical Turk opportunity and several of the others we recommend in our recommendations page. That could quickly add up to some decent money. But if you're already making a lot of money searching for work at home jobs or have a successful work at home career then feel free to pass on this one.
In any event, I just wanted to give you another non-traditional opportunity that is actually available now. Sure it's not a lot of money but it's better than no money. But if you “ain't trying to hear all that”, you can find traditional “real work at home jobs” by clicking here or visiting HomeJobStop.com that offers pre-screened job listings without all the ads.
Let me know what you guys think.
