How to Learn Forex Trading Even Without Investment But Earning Real Money?

Forex Market Trading was a world so big and often unpredictable (for me). So, I started reading about it and dare say that I can even hone my analytical skills with it. Those payment proofs you see from Forex traders are really enticing. You can even see their ads boasting of earning thousand of dollars within seconds. Possible? Yes, it is possible and their incomes are legit and an expression of how good they are as predictors of market behaviors. But this market world can either suck your wallet up or add thousand dollars to your income. Either of which, the risk involved is high and you have to have lots of guts and geared with an analytical mind to be a trader yourself.

SparkProfit offers various market in Forex and commodities trading such as JPY/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, EUR/USD, BTC, S&P500, Nikkei225, EuroStoxx50, Copper, Oil and Gold. Once you earned points, you can use that to put higher bets and multiplier on your next trades. Even without points (zero), you can still put your predictions for the market behavior.

How Forex Trading Works?
Forex Market is open only during the weekdays except for BTC which is open everyday. In SparkProfit, you can only put your predictions in five markets out of the 11 available so make your predictions worth the activity. SparkProfit app is available for both desktop and Android gadgets users. You can trade even if you are on-the-go or just killing time. It will not require lots of time, 10 minutes will be enough. Trading is very easy, you just have to point the movement of a Forex/Commodity value to either increase or decrease to a certain amount. If your prediction is correct, you earn the points you have indicated and multiplied up to three times if you have chosen to have the multiplier. There's also a small initial cost with each prediction you make, it's like an entrance fee before you play the game. If you look at it the easy way, you're only dealing with binary options (up or down). The only challenge is to what extent it can go up before it goes down or the other way around. I put my predictions to around 5,000-20,000 points always. If I am quite sure that the market will surge, I max it to 20K points.

Why Use Pop-Under Ads to Increase Your Site's Revenue?

Pop-under ads a BIG no-no for your site? I have read that many bloggers do not encourage using pop-under ads for a blog because it shoo away readers, that it makes your blog rubbish and all those negative things. So, I haven't tried it for more than a year. I did not even bother to read reviews about them. But when my other site became active with visitors (a 3000 traffic a day for me is already heaven), I started getting ideas on how I can grab that opportunity to earn some few bucks (life is quite tough for me nowadays, uh). So, I tried two pop-under ads and I can say that they worked for me.

Pop-under, popunder,, popads, income, blog, alternative
The Blog Involved
The site where I tested the ads is a how-to site but it was not approved by Google Adsense because most of my posts are about bypassing the internet networks in my country and rooting and customizing gadgets. I installed Adsense alternatives like Infolinks and to generate income. provides income for PPC and Infolinks for the CPM. My traffic is mostly Asian followed by US and UK users. But all traffic are from organic search engine results. Yes, I do not post in social medias or forum to link with my blog just to get traffic.

How I Came to Use Pop-Under Ads?
I did my research and read forum posts and reviews on different monetization ways for my blog. Affiliate marketing will not work as I am not selling something, I am just guiding users on how they can maximize their gadgets. Then I read about pop-under ads. I remembered that I registered to Infinityads wayback in 2012. So, I look over my emails and visited the site. Goodness, my account still working and my previous earnings are still intact! I installed their code for a week and saw that I am earning more with it than with my Infolinks (If you want to know more about Infolinks earning, go here). But this change did not stop me to try another network. I removed the Infinityads code and registered to as a publisher. I read that the is good for blogs/websites with Asian traffic which my site is. I customized the ads to show only 5 ads per day to the same IP for testing purposes. Then my earnings became better everyday. provided me with higher everyday earnings maybe because they pay higher for my Asian traffic?? I don't know, I can't find their rates table from their site. I can earn even higher if I did not limit the ads to be shown per IP! The good thing with is that they will not be shown unless a visitor click any link from your website. It will not be a nuisance when your visitor is just scrolling and reading your blog but you won't earn any income if this is the case. The network also have a low minimum cashout of $5 paid everyday if you can make this much each day.

How to Earn from Pop-Under Ads?
Earning from pop-under ads is more easy than the other ad serving platform. This marketing technique keeps your site neat from all those banner and text link ads. The ads will not be shown unless a reader clicked any of your blog links but the earnings are counted the same, per 1000 impression. boasts to publishers that they can give them a CPM of not lower than $4 per 1000 unique US visitors, cool isn't it?

When you register as a publisher in, you only have to wait a few hours before your blog/site will be approved then you can start using their codes to show ads. Installation of code is also easy. You only have to copy it to one of your blog HTML/Javascript element and you are done. Ads will be shown right away!

Ranking in Search Engine is Not Affected
So, to check with what I have read from other blogs that pop-under ads is not encouraged in blogs as it tends to lose visitors, I monitored my blog stat. Checking everyday for two weeks for any drop in visitors, I found that my traffic is not affected negatively. In fact, my blog was still able to manage some increase in visitors. I even gained a few up rank in TopBlogs. The pop-under ads did not compromise my SEO ranking! I think that when you have a good and useful content, you can retain the interest of your readers. The ads will not push them away but rather can keep them interested in what it offers.

Here is my a proof of income from It is given automatically after you've reached the minimum threshold for cashout ($5). You can even set the threshold higher if you feel like it. I have been issued two payments already within two weeks of using their pop-unders., Proof of income, proof, payment, legit

You can try and see if it will also bring good income to your blog. I did not bother removing the code from my blog after I saw through this opportunity.

Tips and Tricks to Earn More From Crowdflower Tasks (Clixsense, Neobux)

Clixsense and Neobux members were aware that earning from clicking ads alone will not give us much earning as much as we like cause the payment in ads is too low. If you are new to this online earning networks, Clixsense and Neobux are the top paid-to-click (PTC) and get-paid-to (GPT) sites to earn additional income. They do not require their members to invest or pay membership fees in order to get paid; their registration is also FREE. Head on to the Neobux and Clixsense for additional cash sources cause I am giving you some tips and tricks to earn more from these elite sites! In my previous post, I have indicated the ways on how to earn from these sites here.

I had been with the two sites for three years already and I can say that they are legit and paying. You cannot be disappointed that your earnings will go to waste as Neobux pay instantly and Clixsense pays a day after you request your payment. So, how do I earn from them? Both sites are installed with Crowdflower Tasks and they even have rooms for survey participation which provides users with more earning sources. Crowdflower is a company that offers members tasks and minijobs that can be accomplished by transcribing, translating, describing, copy-pasting and analyzing the content of a webpage, document or post. The payment for tasks and surveys varies from $0.01-2.00 each and even greater for geotargeted countries like USA, Canada and the Europe. Besides clicking ads, I prefer to do the tasks and surveys as they pay more with the effort and time that I invest. My location is in Asia but I still get quite a number of tasks and surveys.

In this tutorial, I cannot guarantee that your average earnings will skyrocket but it will gradually increase as you get to know more of tasks and time management. This tutorial is also for users who have no badges yet and want to get the Level 1 up to Level 3 badges.

Tips and Tricks to Earn More From Crowdflower Tasks
1. It is important to know that getting that Level 1 Badge requires hardwork. Hardwork is equivalent to checking the task page every now and then for available task and doing them carefully, making sure that you are able to pass the quiz mode. If you fail the quiz mode, you won't be entitled to participate in the task and you will have to wait again for another batch of the same task or try another available tasks. As much as possible, think twice before you hit the SUBMIT button for each task that you do. But if you pass the quiz, Hooray! You can do the task up to its limit as long you won't get expelled due to wrong answers or corrections. I know it gets frustrating if there is no available task for Level 0, but trust me, every CS and Neo users had gone through that stage. As for my experience, I worked for at least a month before I was awarded the Level 1 badge but the Level 2 and 3 can easily be obtained in a week or two. Whenever there is an available job, work on it cause by that you can familiarize yourself with the instructions and the workaround with the questions.
2. Now, this part requires some planning and tools. You have to be aware of the behavior task availability in Crowdflower. Jot down the time of the day when new batches of task are available or when do this task show. Better if you already have a Level 3 as it will be your gateway to more task involvement. Then equip yourself with this to better manage your tasking techniques:
  • Save all your qualified task IDs and keep them so you can work with them whenever you got the time using a bookmark toolbar like below:
    Crowdflower, Task,Increase income, bookmark, fishing task
    Bookmark Toolbar to Manage Tasks
  • Install the autorefresh add-on on your Chrome browser to increase your chance of getting the available task. Download the Super Autorefresh add-on. Don't stop refreshing even if the "You've done the maximum blah blah" notice appeared, just continue using the autorefresh tool until a new task comes available. Only stop refreshing if the "You've completed blah blah" notice appeared. If the "There's no task available blah blah" notice appeared it is either you are using an old task ID and the job is no longer available. In that case, find a new task ID for the job that you want to do in the Neobux or Clixsense forum, other members are generous enough to share the new task IDs with other users. Set your auto-refresh tool to refresh every 3 seconds. If your tab page shows "Working blah blah", then you got a new task! This technique is called the Gone Fishing method or the Waiting Mode. This tools makes your life easier as you no longer need to press F5 just to refresh the webpage. Please note that you have to work within the time limit otherwise you won't be credited for your work. 
  • Make a time log of the availability of tasks especially when new batches appear. With this, you'll just have to visit the site during these times. It saves you the effort and the hassle on your working schedule. 
  • Update your survey profile everytime. This will give the survey companies an updated insight on your profile and it will give you added chances in being selected for a survey. 
  • Learn from your mistakes (corrections). Analyze your corrections first before hitting the OK button in the corrections page. Understand why you did not get the item correct and see the comments of workers. If you think you are right from the start, do not hesitate to File a Ticket in the Help Department and voice out your concern complete with details of the item you are working on, the correction that you received and your comment regarding that mistake.
  • Don't violate the rules. You wouldn't like an admin flag in your dashboard, it will restrict you from accessing the task. 
  • Don't open multiple browser tabs doing only one task ID. But you can do multiple tasks opened at the same time. When you are done with one, another task will be waiting for you, loaded and ready to be filled-up. 
  • Visit the forum for Task everyday update here. You can read the threads especially when you are not doing a task or waiting to catch one. You will learn a lot from reading threads regarding tasks as you will know which are high or low paying ones and the buggy and unfair tasks. 
  • Use the Task IDs you got from the forum. Get hold of some tasks that do not appear on your list but available to other workers by visiting the Task forum threads above. Let's hope it will also be available in your area. To use other Task IDs, just change the numbers after the last slash "/" of the Crowdflower URL like this:
  • Note: Image/Picture task are way easy to do but they pay less and the competition to get one is quite high. Some of the picture tasks are:
            Ignoring the year, compare the wine label task
            Sentiment from Social Media task
            Moderate post/tweets for content task
            Transcribe tasks
There you have it. Let's get the task flowing and the average income increasing. Enjoy tasking.

Why the Adsense Link Ads Suddenly Turned Gray and Dull?

The Google Adsense ads in this blog had suddenly turned gray and dull yesterday. I noticed this change because I had just replaced an image ad with a text link ad to test if it will fare better. I configured the link ad with the default blue and white color scheme. It went well and saw that the colors fit this blog and I left it like that.

Adsense, Link ads, gray, muted, ads
Then after a few hours, I visited this blog again for new comments and saw that the newly installed ad is now gray and different from my previous settings. So, I checked my Adsense account thinking that I might just have activated the wrong color scheme or maybe Adsense had penalized me for the additional ad whatsoever. But instead, I saw in my account that the ad is setup the way I wanted it to look. I searched the web for people who might also be experiencing this scenario and read that other people are also complaining about this change especially in the Google forum. Until now, I am seeing the gray and muted link ads from Adsense not only from this blog but from other sites as well. I hope it's just my browser or my location, and maybe Google can give us an explanation for this change.

But still, many are not aware that the online income is now becoming a trend among internet users. The internet is not only composed of Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Yahoo or Youtube; everyday, there are thousands of domains that are being registered and the birth of websites had been growing exponentially as access to internet is becoming widespread.

So, how do those thousands of websites land their posts in the world wide web. You can imagine how big the internet world is and how website owner works just to have his/her website standout from other existing ones. This is where advertising come in. Web owners usually shell out money just to get visits from other users who can be potential buyers or constant visitors in their site. One way of advertising is through the pay-to-click (PTC) and get-paid-to (GPT) sites.

I introduce you to Clixsense!
Clixsense is not only a pay-to-click site, it is a combination of both. You get paid to click, watch videos, answer surveys, complete forms, transcribe, and even identify errors from documents.

The Goods of Clixsense:

For only $17/year, you can have their Premium membership and have access to their higher rates of bonuses and activity incentives. If you opted to have the premium membership for two years, you can avail the discount of $4 in your purchase, so that gives you $30 for the two-year term. Isn't it great?
4. You can earn even without referrals. You can earn just by yourself.
5. They have an eight levels affiliate program! You earn not only from your downline but also from your downline's referrals.
6. Most of your earnings will not come from PTC alone, you can earn from doing tasks, answering surveys and more to this, they got lots of bonus even if you are just a standard member! You can earn $5 bonus if you earned $50 by doing tasks and you are also given an everyday bonus based on your daily activities and earnings such as viewing PTC ads, clicking 20 squares in the ClixGrid game, completing 10 tasks or 2 offers and visiting the forum. Here is an example:

But if you decide to upgrade, here's what you can have:
The benefits of a Clixsense Premium Member:
1. Four (4) fixed ads of $0.01 everyday. That alone will earn you, $0.01*365days=$14.60. Additional ads of $0.001-$0.015 everyday (at least ads).
2. 60 Clixgrid chances to earn up to $10.
3. Earn 12% of your daily earnings in the Checklist bonus instead of the 5% bonus as standard member. Like these:

You can earn more than that depending on the amount of offers or tasks available.
4. Plus unlimited earnings by doing tasks and offers. Offer rates starts from $1 up. If you can accomplish more tasks everyday, you get a chance to win in the Top 10 weekly contest prize of $2-$50 and a chance to earn $5 for every $50 earning from task.

So, before you hit the SUBMIT button, make sure that you feel confident in your answers. Usually 75% is the minimum accuracy requirement before you can work on a task. And please note that multi-tabbing or doing tasks simultaneously is not allowed. Read the instructions in every task, I'm sure you won't be lost. And also, to improve the number of tasks available for you, answer the skill test to better target the tasks suitable for you.

How to Edit Post Title and Description When Sharing Blog URLs in Facebook?

Facebook is the biggest networking site which allows users to share websites and pages in their newsfeed. As a blogger, you should grab this opportunity as this is a free service to have your blog shown to wider audience and in turn will bring traffic and popularity to your blog. Once your blog URL hit the Facebook newsfeed, it is available for other FB users for reading and some may click it for more info. But posts in FB newsfeed is shown in preview mode (only with the blog title and blog/page description and not the whole page content). So, it now requires your creativity to create catchy phrases that will attract FB users to click your shared link.

One way is to make have the status update inviting!
In addition to the status note, you can also edit the blog title and the description to make it more attractive but make sure that you won't deceive the users by posting descriptions different to what is actually found in your blog as this may result to readers avoiding your posts in the future.

To edit your Blog Title and Description: 
1. Post the URL of your blog post in the status box and wait for Facebook to read it and give you the snippet. Note: Don't hit the POST button at this stage, just paste it.
2. If you only want the Post Title to appear and not your Blog Title or you want a different one, just hover over the title in FB until it turns yellow like the pic above and click it. The title will transform into an edit box where you can now edit the title as to your liking.
3. Next is hover your mouse to the blog description (below your blog url) and once it turns yellow, click it and an edit box will appear. Just edit the description into a catchy one!
4. Once you are satisfied with the content, it's now time to hit that POST button. Done!

FB users can also share what you have posted via their newsfeed and you can watch how your page views increase!
