How to Get Paid to Search the Internet

Do you smell fish? It’s probably just your nose, it’s not me (or my article either). Does the title seem scam-ish? I get it, it does but it’s true. However, there are legit ways to get paid to search the internet, all you have to do is just keep reading this article. Note! This is not to say there are no scam zones, of course, there are. Be watchful of that.

We surf the internet every day, it’s only fair to want to make money out of it.

Without further ado, let’s jump right in, I’ll be sharing with you in this article how to get paid to search the internet. There are different ways to make money by just searching the web, this is why I have categorized it into three easy-to-understand ways.

Let’s go!

Evaluators for Search Engines

Google, Bing, Safari, etc. are examples of search engines. Now you have an idea? No? Okay.

Evaluators for search engines evaluate and grade the search results that appear when a user types in a specific phrase. They rate how useful the top search results are, if the map is right, or if the search results are what you were looking for, depending on the assignment. In essence, they do research by using these search engines, measure if these engines provide exact or near useful search results(as regards how relevant the answer to the search was, the accuracy and how long it took to get a reply), then they give their feedback.

As easy as it sounds, the recruitment process is technical and they usually want someone with a degree of some sort.

If you are excellent at doing research and are currently in a culture stance, you can be an evaluator for search engines too, here are companies that will pay you for your services.

1. Lionbridge

This company is global and has been providing its service for more than 20years, it is legit. There are other roles you can take when you work with this company, translator and content writer are examples.

2. Flexjobs

Check everything they are about and how to apply for their job openings. It’s a company that offers opportunities for people to work from home, and surf the net.

3. Appen

Saved the best for the last. Appen is a notable website in this regard. They call their evaluators – raters. Sounds comfortable, huh? Check them out here

Earnings of being an evaluator (or rater): $15-$17 per hour depending on the website.

Using Smaller Search Engines

Everyone loves Google. At least I’m sure of myself, I love Google. It’s the first thing I check when I don’t know the meaning of a word or a phrase, anything at all. There are other search engines, you know?

These other search engines don’t have enough traffic and can’t compare themselves to the number one leading search engine in the world. Hence, they created a scheme and incentive for people who use them.

It’s a way of motivating you to try them out also. Almost whispering, “Pick me! Pick me! You know you need that money”

1. Swagbucks

Swagbucks is one of the apps where you can make money. They have a website, that’s why it is in this article too. The moment you sign in to the website, there’s a $10 incentive waiting for you. And for each time you use this search engine, you get points. This point is called the “Search Win”. Over time, this point is accrued to cash and they make the money rain.

How does the money get to you? Through PayPal or gift cards.

2. FusionCash

This is another search engine that pays you to search online using their website. It’s easy to navigate and quite reliable too.

How does the money get to you? PayPal, direct deposit, or gift card.

3. InboxDollars

This is a popular site where you can get paid to search the internet. The user experience on the app is quite easy. Here’s how it works: for every four searches you make, you get rewarded with one cent. There are also other ways to get paid on the website, they include; opting to read emails, replying to surveys, and engaging in the site’s offers.

How does the money get to you? PayPal, direct paper check, or gift card.

4. Microsoft Rewards

This is a search engine owned by Microsoft. The reward for each search is 5 points.

How does the money get to you? It doesn’t get to you in cash, only gift cards.

Giving Your Data Out

Some companies share surveys in order to collect your data and turn them into information, they use this info for market advertising and research.

In essence, you don’t give your personal details out. All you have to do is get paid for searching the internet by inputting your email address and engaging with the posts on their web or apps. Basically, think of it as your phone’s ability to do searches and the app is saving the places you’ve searched. Do you get it?

Here are apps that collect your data in that way;

1. HoneyGain

For iPhone users, this is your app if you want to get paid for surfing the net. They don’t have an android version yet. However, it’s not so profitable as you only get paid $1 for each 10gigabyte worth of data.

If you still want to check them out, do that here.

How do you get paid? Gift cards!

2. Nelson Computer and Mobile Panel

When this app collects your data, it serves as user experience testing. Over time, they use the information they have accrued to improve or change their online products/services. You get paid monthly. How? Gift cards!

You can download the app and start earning.

3. MobileXpression

The name of the app kind of explains what it does, I’ll tell you why. You can get paid by using this app when you install it and just leave it to run while you use your phone like you normally would.

It runs in the background and picks up on how you use your phone, and how the phone internet is harnessed. Hence, the “mobile ‘xpression”.

By the side, you can log on to the app and take surveys or engage in their special offers.

How do you get paid? Gift cards.

This Is The Right Way to Protect Your Children from Pedophiles

This Is The Right Way to Protect Your Children from Pedophiles

Did I just hear you say sexually molesting a helpless child/baby is a mental disorder? Does that mean that very soon, child sexual offenders will happily roam the streets free, after being fully acquitted from a non-guilty plea, on the cushioned grounds of insanity?

No, I don’t want to believe that our world today is agreeing with this gruesome misconduct and grievous rebellion against the laws of nature. After being termed with a ‘fancy name’ to legitimize its birth, “Paedophilia” went further to being baptized as a ‘Psychiatric disorder’; subconsciously assisting its so-called sufferers to get away with their acts.

Whatever complicated theory the world may choose to weave about ‘Paedophilia” today, the simple fact is, we need to reject this mental slavery the second it lands on our runway; starting from protecting our children from these walking monsters.

What Is Paedophilia?

Before we can protect our children from paedophiles, we need to first and foremost understand what it is, its extent, and its limits. Therefore, we will look at its basic history/evolution, definition, and signs of a paedophile/paedophilia.

History/Evolution of Paedophilia

Formally recognised and named in the late 19th century, the term ‘Paedophilia’ comes from Greek words; ‘Paidos’ and ‘Philia’, meaning ‘Child’ and ‘Friendship/friendly love’ respectively.

This term was used to describe sexual interest in mostly male adults, to feel sexual urges or engage in sexual acts in prepubescent children; that is children who have not attained puberty.

However, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders replaced the term ‘Paedophilia’ with ‘Paedophilic Disorder’ arguing that a paedophilic desire, practice, or behaviour in itself does not constitute a mental illness and that it is only a disorder when it is mentally or socially affects the concerned individual and also exerts harm to unwilling persons or victims.

Warning Signs of a Paedophile

There are no outward signs of a paedophile. In fact, they look and act very normal just like you and me. The only difference is that they are sexually attracted to children and you are not.

However, below are ten warning signs you should look out for in a paedophile; gathered from their criminal profiles and psychological studies. Remember, they do not make one automatically a paedophile, but should be enough to make you as a guardian be cautious:

  • He is a victim of molestation before himself
  • He is most times someone close to you; a relative, friend, co-worker, neighbour, and so on.
  • He is always around children or has work related to children.
  • His environment is decorated in childlike décor that will appeal to the age and sex of the child he desires and not scare them away.
  • He is very patient. He spends time as much as possible with your child, constantly giving them gifts, prolonged hugs, and attention. In other words, he grooms both you and the child to trust him.
  • He watches or masturbates to child pornography.
  • He talks to or treats children like adults.
  • Also, he is mostly friends with single mothers or women who lack sufficient male support in their lives.
  • He has an impeccable reputation and good manners or a mental illness such as a mood or personality disorder.
  • He is always on online platforms popular among young adolescents.

How to Protect Your Child from Paedophiles

We have understood the concept of paedophilia and looked into the warning signs of a potential paedophile. Now this will help us in delving head-on into ways we can protect our children from falling victims to their traps. Ways you can protect your child from a paedophile include: 

1. Educate Yourself about Them

You need to be aware of the traits and behaviours of a paedophile before you can be able to protect your child. Most criminals like rapists, armed robbers, serial murderers have similar patterns of behaviour and regularly devise new ways of achieving their aims.

Arm yourself with regular updates about the latest trends in use by these sexual predators so that you will not be taken by surprise. 

2. Educate Your Child to Keep Private Parts Private

Distinguish appropriate and inappropriate touching for your child. Let him know that there are good touches and there are bad touches. Your child should know that a high five or a pat on the back is different from a butt squeeze or a kiss on the lips or tongue.

Also, do not stigmatise teaching your child from an early age about the concept of private parts. Let your children understand that certain places in their bodies are not for the public. Go further to protect those places for them from view from people when bathing or dressing them up. This includes family members also.

In addition, constantly remind them by saying things like; “Listen to me sweetheart, do not allow anyone to see or touch you here and here. Whoever asks you to show or touch it, run straight to me and tell me”.

This will keep your child alert and inform them that there is something wrong when someone tries to see or touch their privates.

3. Teach Your Child to Not Talk to Strangers or Follow Them to Places

Paedophiles usually observe a child they are interested in and work tirelessly to isolate them from their peers. They appear where they usually play and talk to them until they become a familiar face even if the child doesn’t know them. When they establish familiarity, they lure them to isolated places, have their way, and later disappear without a trace.

Discourage your child as much as possible to feel at home with strangers. 

4. Teach Your Child to Inform You about Gifts

One of the popular ways paedophiles get to children is by giving them gifts. Generally, discourage your child from accepting gifts all the time. “I will give you a packet of sweets if you let me see or touch you in this place” is an example of phrases a paedophile uses. For the average child, this feels like a relatively fair deal if they don’t know that these are not things to bargain with.

Also, whenever someone presents your child with a gift, encourage them to first show you before accepting or consuming it. If you notice any abnormal way in the gifts or manner which they are given, ask your child questions like “Did he ask you to give him a gift in return?” Questions like this will help you understand the true intentions of the giver.

5. Supervise Your Child Regularly

Whether your child is alone or not, engaged in a playful activity or another; make sure you regularly show up in places where your child spends long hours on their own or with other people. Be positive that there are no short or long-term disappearances from where your child is engaged in an activity.

If left with a friend, family member, co-worker, or nanny, take breaks from work or what you are doing to check up on them regularly through phone calls or visits. 

6. Do Not Leave Your Children Alone At Public Places

At a birthday party, wedding, or shopping mall, keep your eye on your child at all times. Sexual molesters use these gatherings to snatch children away and force them. Also, watch out for onlookers who are always present at children’s gatherings without having an actual reason to be there.

Also, refuse to send children to open doors when the door rings or send them on errands where they have to pass secluded places. These sexual predators are everywhere waiting for the perfect opportunity to snatch your child.

7. Be Your Child’s Friend

Build an environment that is emotionally conducive for your child. Listen to their concerns and do not make them feel judged or ashamed. Remember, child molesters often use threats to keep your child quiet about the atrocities they constantly do to them.

Your children can only overcome that threat or fear instilled in them if they feel you can protect their interests after they disclose their secrets to you. Typically, child molesters target children who do not get much attention from their parents and act only after gaining their trust and friendship.

Be friends with your child; share your own thoughts and feelings, have open and honest conversations and they will never feel threatened or afraid to tell you their secrets.

8. Notice When Your Child Is Acting Differently

Is your child behaving in a withdrawn manner around a certain person or cringes when you brush past their privates during bath time? Try to know your children’s regular pattern of behaviour and watch out for any changes. Do not ignore them.

Constantly ask your children how their day was at school, how the outing with an adult went, or why they are not playing with their friends. “Did you fall and hurt your buttocks?” Asking these questions regularly will keep the lines of communication open to bring up any answers to such matters.

9. Trust Your Child’s Instincts

Do not dismiss your child’s claims about not wanting to be around someone simply because you feel that someone is too virtuous. Children have the best instincts and if they do not feel comfortable around someone, do not force them. 

10. Monitor Your Child’s Internet Activity

Children at a very young age these days are allowed to handle and operate gadgets. Alas, this has proven a favourable decision for paedophiles online who stalk social platforms and chatrooms popular among children; sending them pictures to entice them before finally luring them into an open meeting.

As a guardian, establish internet rules; regularly monitor your children’s online activity by asking them about people they meet and by checking it out on your own.


We must do our best to protect our children from harm at all costs. Say again that molesting a helpless child/baby is a ‘mental disorder’ and we will echo in unison the death of those who deservingly need to be punished for their acts. 

Sexually molesting a child is a crime against mother nature. They wish to speak up for the rights of mental health of people that engage in these gruesome acts – acts of sexually molesting children including babies of only three weeks old. Meanwhile;

Who is standing up for the mental health rights of children sexually molested every day?
