YouData Pays You to View Ads on Freebies 4 Mom

by Freebies4Mom on February 12, 2011 6:30 am

I just made $1.38 by viewing ads in less than 1 minute. It’s true, I help my readers make money from the ads on my blog! Are you earning money from YouData by viewing ads on Freebies 4 Mom? If not, I want to help you get started. If you already use YouData, read below to find out about the new video ads plus other tips to earn more.
*Start Getting Paid for Viewing Ads by YouData

1. Create an account
Don’t be intimidated, but they need some information from you. Hey, they also need to know what PayPal account (create a PayPal account here) to put your earnings in every Friday (this only requires your email address). Some of the information is optional, and you’ll see it clearly marked as optional. They will not ask for your mailing address, but they will need your cell phone number to send you one text message. This is necessary to confirm your registration and helps them enforce the limit of only one YouData account per person. Registration requires one text message, and you will not receive any additional text messages after you register.

2.Fill out optional surveys in Your MeFile
I really think you will make more money if you fill these out because they allow the targeted ads to appear for you – these are ads that you would likely have more interest in.

3. Log in at Freebies 4 Mom
Look at my right sidebar and scroll down until you see the woman’s face and the YouData logo. Just enter your MeFile ID and password to see if new ads are available.

4. Slide over to “Keep 100%
You can not see the slide bar unless there are ads available for you to view and earn money! I want you to earn all of the money, so slide that bar over to KEEP 100% of the earnings. This ad is specifically for my readers and I included it for YOU to make money. Please don’t give me any of your money! My job is to give you money. You will only see that slidebar if you are viewing YouData ads on a blog that hosts it (like mine) or if a charity sponsors a video ad.

5. Remember to Click and Jump
You earn money by viewing banner ads and by clicking on the links to jump to an advertiser’s website. It’s really easy and very fast to do. You just have to remember to do it every week so that you can keep getting paid! Of course the supply of ads to view varies, and you’ll earn varying amounts each week. My first week of earnings was $4.43 – your first week will always be the highest earnings because you will have lots of new ads to view.

6. Enjoy your FREE MONEY
Hey – that’s free money (ok, you did pay a few seconds of attention for each paid ad). Those pennies and dollars will add up and you’ll be able to use it on something you need or want. You will get your money deposited automatically in your PayPal account every Friday, there is no minimum required to get paid! I plan on using that PayPal money for online purchases, but it is possible also to link it to your banking account.

4 Steps to Earn More Money from YouData

1. Log into Your MeFile
I just earned $1.38 cents by viewing a few ads. I earned $1.08 viewing ads in the YouData box in the right sidebar of Freebies 4 Mom. Then I logged into my MeFile and watched one video ad to earn $0.20 more.  You can only view video ads by logging into YouData. Then I filled out a few new survey questions in my MeFile and viewed another ad to earn $0.10 more.  Remember that these MeFile surveys are optional, but by filling them out you are eligible to view targeted ads. Just login to YouData, click on “Your MeFile”, and start filling out surveys.

2. Login and Check for New Ads Weekly
It’s true that if you don’t login, you can’t view new ads! I always keep the YouData box in my right sidebar, so just login and check for new ads about once a week while you’re visiting my blog.

3. Click the Refresh Button Often
Did you login and don’t see any new ads to view? Click the “Refresh” button at the bottom right because often a few new ads will appear when you do. Even after I’ve viewed ads I always click the “Refresh” button again and often see new ads appear after I do.

4. Be Patient
YouData is an innovative way of advertising and it will take awhile for new advertisers to catch-on. Be patient and remember that every penny earned on YouData was earned with just a few seconds of your attention. Be grateful that YouData is the first, and only advertiser that pays you the reader for viewing ads on blogs like mine!

I’m an affiliate for YouData which means they pay me to host their YouData box in my sidebar. I share YouData with you because I think it’s an easy way to add a few dollars to your PayPal account. I write my own opinions about YouData and they do not review or edit my posts. Please remember to put your slider bar on “100% Keep” because I want you to keep all the pennies you earn! This post contains affiliate links, please visit my Disclosure Policy.

If an ad is available to view it will appear after you Login. Some weeks
you’ll see lots of new ad, other weeks you’ll see none. So just be patient.
This week has been an amazing week of ads for Houston on YouData – I made
over $9 viewing ads.

I signed up about a month and half ago on your site. Immediately I made $1.38 and then nothing. Now when I am on your site the YouData link that was on the right hand side hasn’t been there in over a week.  I also have had nothing new since the 2nd day after I joined as I have just been going directly to their website since your link is gone on my freebies4mom page. Thanks

Cassie – You can get to YouData on Freebies 4 Mom by clicking on “Money 4 Mom” in the top menu bar then “YouData”. I had to move the widget off of my homepage because it was causing slow loading for the homepage. The ad inventory varies greatly, depending on the advertisers using YouData. I find that most of the ads I get are local ads for Houston – so I think it helps to live near a big city and get those local ads.

I have earned some money doing YouData, is there a time of day that new sites are posted,  I seem to miss them all the time.

It’s random when new ads are posted, that’s why I recommend checking at
least once a week.

Hi Swishwishes,

We pay a maximum of $1 per referral at a rate of $.01 per click. So each referral that comes our way and uses the system contributes toward that total for the referrer. Some people reach the maximum 100 clicks pretty quickly.

If you have an account, you can see the details after you login at https://www.youdata.com/YouData/meFile/referralProgram.html

If anyone else has questions, I’m happy to answer them!

James

Can you really earn $1.00 per referral whether they donate their earnings to you or not?

You’ll
have to ask YouData that question. I don’t know exactly how they calculate
the referrals.

Hi everyone. My name is James Mayes and I am an engineer at YouData. First of all, thank you very much for your interest in what we are doing. It makes us very happy. We are a small company located in Houston (and Austin) and have been building our business for about three years. It’s been fun and challenging.

Yesterday we did experience some technical problems which I now know were probably triggered by the people here. 🙂 It’s a good problem to have and I’ll be working on isolating the cause and fixing soon. Some problems only arise under unusual load patterns making it a little difficult to pinpoint right away.

I wanted to address ad availability and our general model. We really want to be a premiere targeted online ad network (not a behavioral ad network where cookies are tracked across sites). We really want advertisers to setup ad campaigns that specifically match your interests anonymously — you should get truly interesting ads and make a small amount of money for your attention. We do not want to become a “paid to click” or “survey” site. Our surveys are 100% optional but they do allow the advertisers to find you.

The current reality of our model is that we must attract advertisers all over the US to cover everyone with any regularity. It’s a challenge for us and the temptation is to offer the blanket banner ads (reseller) where the clicks are cheap and the attention isn’t quality attention that the advertisers desire.

What this all means for you is that there may be people who consistently have lots of ads while others may have very little. This is largely due to our current “local” efforts to focus our sales group on regional/local areas. For instance, if you happen to live in some Houston-area zips, you might see an ad for a popular sandwich shop, enticing you to come in with free/discounted sandwich. But if you live in Seattle, maybe not. So we have a few national campaigns that come and go but we have lots and lots of local advertisers in some very focused areas that are helping us grow in the most efficient manner.

We encourage our users to consume ads on their favorite sites (like this one or kirtsy.com or thebloggess.com) by logging into the ad player and selecting “Remember Me”. That way, if and when you DO match some ads, you are compensated in the normal course of your online browsing. Compare that with the other banner ads you see throughout the day! Perhaps one day it will be the way advertising just works. That’s our goal!

Thanks for your time and please contact us if you have any problems! We have some new features coming soon! In the meantime look us up on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@youdata).

James

How does PayPal work? Does the money go on your PayPal Account, or does it get credited to your credit card?

Reply

Anonymous February 13, 2011 at 1:28 am

The money goes into your PayPal account and you get an email every Friday if
a deposit is made. You can then withdraw money to your bank account.

I’ve been signed up for YouData for a long time. While it’s true that only a few months after signing up I did receive $1 or 2, I stopped checking YouData after several months of not even a penny’s worth of adds to look at. I’m surprised they are still around, since once you fill out the first round of surveys and information, the only way to ‘make’ money is by viewing adds, which you can’t do. The website says they are overwhelmed with people who want to view adds and that is why there are so few available, so I don’t see why they’d try to get more people to sign up.

Working for me. I have .81cents so far. Not bad. I will keep trying. This is cool.

How do you make so much? I’ve been signed up for a couple months now, and I think I’ve done all the mefile surveys, but a lot of weeks I get nothing, or maybe 10 or 20 cents.

Emily – KEEP means the money you make goes into your account. GIVE
means it goes into my account as the blogger who hosts the ad. So you
always want it in 100% KEEP.

I was disappointed I cannot do it because you have to have certain phone providers. If your provider is not on their list, you’ll be unable to sign up.

it depends. I’m on Net10 which was none of the carriers, but i clicked on each one until i got a text and Verizon worked for me, even tho it is not really my carrier or associated with Net10. Worth a try.
