That doesn't seem terribly lucrative. More of a pastime.

Not clear how much money you can earn there. I just looked into it, and it does not explain it clearly. It says reward is 0.02 cents. Time- 60 minutes. And then a number of hits- some thousands.

How does that translate into money? What's the average earning?
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!

Here's an article by a guy who tried it and claimed he made about $7 an hour.

That could compare with teaching in a foreign country.

Flipping waste of time. You're better off spending your time attempting to earn more money than this job will provide.
