Get paid to search the web: 3 websites to make money from

Posted April 19, 2014 by Student Profit Staff

You can make money online easy by just searching the web as you probably be countless times already!

There are a number of websites that are offering to PAY you just to search the internet, here are three of the best..


Qmee will pay you just to search the web, simple as that! Sponsored ads accompany the search results and you can build up cash rewards which can either be paid out to a Paypal account or donated to a charity of your choice.



Swagbucks allows you to earn points (aka Swag Bucks) by searching via their website (which is powdered by Google and Bing). The Swag Bucks points can be exchanged for all sorts of rewards such as gift cards or just straight cash into your Paypal account. You can also earn points by completing surveys and polls, shopping and watching videos.


The ScreenWise Trends panel will reward you for sharing your internet data with them for the purposes of research: £15 for for the first 30 days and £5 for every 90 days after that. You needn’t do anything more than just instal an app your computer! There is the obvious privacy implication, but one could argue that your browsing history is probably already being shared so you might as well get some easy cash for it.
