I found a site ages ago where you got paid for every search you do. I do a lot of searches normally, so I was chuffed to be able to make a few pennies using my computer in exactly the way I do anyway.
The site is Homepages Friends and it’s definitely worth a look. it does searches through the Yahoo search engine and you can add a dsearch boxz to your IE or Firefox browser. Yahoo is not my first choice for searching, but it’s always worth searching on there first, even if I then have to do a Google search afterwards!
As well as earning for your own searches, if you get any friends to sign up you earn from their searches too.
