Website Review – Weegy.com

I joined Weegy February this year after reading about it on a Hub. I would like to share my experience as this is a real earner for freelancers.

Weegy is a real-time, interactive Q&A Interface ready to offer answers to all types of questions remaining active round the clock. It has a system of online knowledge base as well as human experts who work on real world problems.  “Weegy” is a female animated avatar who acts as a representative as if she is interacting with the user.

This is a cost effective and a speedy way of getting answers to any questions and problems. I have been one of its experts for a few week now and have a fair bit of insight to explain about this site.

 

MAIN THEME

Weegy.com is a community-based expert system”. It provides answers to every question and smartens itself during the process. Whenever a user asks a question, it gives the most relevant answer from database. If the users needs a better answer, he can rate it as “not a good answer”. The question is then routed to one of theWeegy experts who provides the answer from their own knowledge or after research.

All this is free of cost and flexible to use. Weegy can be accessed via Phone Call, Text message or Online Chat. Users can categorize their questions so that Weegy can choose the best expert available for the question. A good thing for experts to use Weegy is that they are paid for answering. There are also monthly contests for hardworking experts.

It Provides:

  • Answers to users free of cost 24-by-7 via Call, Text and Chat.
  • Ways to earn money for Subject Experts who are paid for answering and competing in contests.
  • High quality standards for answers and persistently adapting knowledge base.

USERS – GET ANSWERS

At Weegy, you get quality answers like nowhere else (which are also mostly at nominal cost). For professional analysis and opinion questions, Weegy system is very efficient to route them to the best expert on the subject.

Features of Weegy for users:

  1. User will get an instantaneous answer from Weegy knowledge base as soon as he enters the question. If the answer in not appropriate, it is routed to an expert.
  2. At Weegy, user is well informed about the status of his question. Weegy provides various side options for experts to communicate the status of their findings. This communication channel through “NOTES” helps control the BP levels.
  3. Quality of Answers is great. Expert answers have ratings. Their payments are dependent on these ratings. They are very important for experts and help keep the quality of answer considerably high.
  4. For professional service, users have option to choose Weegy Pro and Weegy Research. These are paid options. Using these options users get to hand pick the expert. Only the cream of experts are available for Pro and Research services.
  5. Users get the answers in written as well as animated speech from Miss Weegy.
  6. Weegy has a one step easy-to-use interface. There is NO requirement for a Sign Up.

 

EXPERTS – EARN MONEY BY ANSWERING

Another good thing about Weegy is that it gives inquisitive people an opportunity to earn money. This was the reason I was lured into it. Now, I use Weegy both for answers and answering. Questions vary from one letter multiple choice ones to analysis and opinion questions.

Weegy pays variable rate to reward experts who consistently provide correct and descriptive answers and are actively participating on the site. The rate of pay depends upon the question and answer quality, the expert level and length of service, the time of day, flag rate, user ratings, and an evaluation by Weegy administrators.

According to Weegy, average payment rate for experts is $0.20 per conversation. This is excluding the pay received from Pro and Research services. Payments in these services are divided equally between Weegy and the Expert.

Features for Experts:

  1. Average Payment rate of $0.20 per conversation.
  2. Opportunity to earn big money by being eligible for Pro and Research. Expert’s share of pay for Pro service is $1.00 for every 5 minutes of conversation.
  3. Opportunity to earn extra money by Good Ratings. Top three expert get rewards ($30, $20 and $10).
  4. Opportunity to earn extra money by Comments.
  5. It is always a good opportunity to learn new things, especially the ones which are important in this world.
  6. Flexibility of multi-tasking and choosing questions. Experts have the right to pass the question when busy and can also work in parallel windows until they hear the question alert.

 

MY EXPERIENCE AND EARNINGS

I have been working for Weegy since February. I might have worked on average only for around 1-2 hours a day while multi-tasking on social networking sites, Hub writing, studying, etc. I have earned $24.56/mo on this site with honest and concise answers. My average payment rate is $0.11 per question which is less than average but good enough. I think it is justified because I am not expert yet and need to go through my share of learning.

Apart from statistics this I have acquired some knowledge about History, Science, English and a lot more. I am not an addict but for knowledge I like to keep close to this site.

PAYMENTS 

For receiving payments you requires minimum earnings of $20.00 and a valid PayPal account.

 

FINAL WORD

Weegy is novel idea and I feel that it is a good decision to get into it as early as possible. Once it picks up popularity and credibility, you will be good earners.For users, Weegy is becoming indispensable and nothing-to-lose option. You can get the best answers at no cost at all.

Tested Ways to Earn Online from India #1

July 11, 2012 2 comments

AMAZON MTURK

MTURK is an initiative by Amazon to bring workers and businesses at one platform for helping each other. It is a sort of marketplace for work. Because it is highly popular, a large number of workers come to this site for their tasks called HITs (Human Intelligence Tasks). Each tasks has a earning attached to it which varies from $0.01 to $20.00 or more. The nature of tasks on this site is diverse.

It Offers:

  • User Surveys.
  • Translations of Words.
  • Transcriptions of Audio files.
  • Article Writing, Summary writing, paraphrasing, etc.
  • Internet Search.
  • Image evaluation.
  • Copying Text from B-card.
  • And What not.

What do you need to have to start working at MTURK?

  1. An email Id
  2. A bank Account for receiving payments.
  3. Even if you don’t have a bank account you can also so convert your earnings to Amazon Gift Vouchers for ordering online products.

Benefits of MTURK

  • Flexible Times – You won’t have to work according to daily schedules, you may choose to.
  • Good choice – As given before, MTURK offers a large set of tasks you can choose from.
  • No bidding – Bidding is one of the worst things. Thank God that MTURK has an easier way of offering work. Any user can choose the open HITs provided that he meets all the criteria.

Drawbacks of MTURK

  • A large number of tasks are for people from US. Well, that’s expected. There is nothing to despair because there are a lot of other tasks which you can be eligible in.
  • There is a $4.00 fee for converting the earnings to Rupees which is required for transferring it to Indian bank account.

My experience at MTURK

As you can see below, I have earned close to $44 by working for only 7 days this month. Bulk of that earning came on 2 days in which I worked for over 12 hours. So that was a real hard work earning me a maximum of Rs. 750 in a day. I don’t want you to work this hard. Go slow and you will last longer. Remember that you will not find good work out there everyday. Wait for the work which rewards your labor in a decent manner.

my verdict: 85/100

SSC CGL Preparation Books

There is no shortage on books in the market. But sometimes the abundance of choice makes the task more indecisive. You can read as many books as you like for preparing, however, if you have limited time and want to make the best out of that time, the choice will be very important.

A lot of SSC CGLE candidates are late comers (some due to lack of awareness and others due to lack of confidence and Drive). They resort to crash course style of preparation. This kind of preparation becomes necessary when there are only a few weeks left for the preparation. In limited amount of time, the preparation should be restricted to the specialized material only. Some of the specialized books are:

  • Upkar Prakashan / Kiran Prakashan / G K P (Top Down Approach) : These books are good to have a fair idea about the Exam as well as lay hands on the previous years papers. In addition, you also get to solve model tests which helps checking the level of preparation. One drawback of these crash course books is that they don’t teach you concepts. This makes them suitable only for those who are already preparing for such kind of exams. Others can supplement these books with conceptual books given below. There is no need to buy more than one book from this category as this may lead to financial over-burden and confusion.
  • Arun Sharma ( Arithmetical Ability): For learning concepts, a lot of people resort to internet. It is a great source but doesn’t help much. This is because online resources are disorganized and hard to retrieve leading to wastage of effort and time. Moreover, fatigue factor is more when reading online as compared to that from books. Arun Sharma is primarily written for CAT aspirants but it is quite a help even for CGLE preparation. Things you need to know is to restrict your reference to concepts and that to pertaining to CGLE Syllabus only. By doing so, you will be able to customize this book for your use. Arun sharma has a large amount of questions (some of which are beyond the syllabus of CGLE). So, you need to keep in mind a few Do’s and Dont’s before using this book.
  • DO’S:
    • Learn only the concepts, formulae and shortcuts.
    • Remember CGLE Syllabus.
    • See 1-2 questions on each topic.
  • DONTS
    • Go on solving the book (go back to Specialized book for practice).
    • Touch topics which are beyond the syllabus.
    • Lose your focus from CGLE.
PS: I recommend Arun Sharma because it helped me. There are some other books in the market which can equally help you. Reader’s discretion is required.
  • R. S. Aggarwal (Reasoning): It is also a concept book. Difficulty level of Reasoning in CGL Exam is low but those who are not well versed in reasoning problems can read this book. Before buying this book, I would suggest you to check out the Reasoning problems in the books mentioned at the top and see whether you need this book or not. Remember that reasoning is a scoring subjects when it comes to CGL Exam and can make or break your rank. Those who are good at it should aim between 40-45.
  • Wren and Martin or Word Power Made Easy (English): These books, again, are not necessary. But they can be a great foundation for under confident aspirants. They can also be very useful in Tier-II English Language Paper (which will be of 200 marks). By personal experience I find them a little dry. However, most of the questions in the English Section are onvocabulary and sentence structure which will be covered by these 2 books. Thus, these books can be very useful.
  • Lucent GK (General Awareness): There are some universal truths about General Awareness which are worth keeping in mind.
    • It has an unlimited syllabus no matter if it is short.
    • It takes effort and luck to score well in this section.
But the book by Lucent publications seems to defy these truths. It is one of those books which can boast of carrying more than 60% of questions asked in CGL Exam each year. Thus, it is a must have for each and every candidate. It may be a bit exhaustive and consume a lot of your time. I will advise caution if you are short of time. It should be read selectively depending on your strengths and weaknesses.

This study material can be complemented with online resources, especially for the General Awareness part keeping in mind that online wandering can’t replace the organized preparation at home.

ZURKER – Redefining Social Networking

You may know that Facebook founder Mark Zukerburg has stolen the idea from two twin brother in harvard university in 2001. Later on they complained and got 65 million dollar in 2007. In 2009 they started a new project(ZURKER). You can join it now and become a share holder of ZURKER. Facebook’s worth 50 billion today but its users getting 0%. So this new idea is invoked by the twin.

Hundreds of members are joining every day. New features are being added daily to make it better than facebook and google+ and to rule the future of social networking. Join today and become a shareholder now. It’s limited to 7 country only, including India and US.
Zurker is:

  • A member-owned Social Network: This means Zurker isn’t owned by a select few venture capitalists who stand to make billions and billions. There is nothing wrong with the idea of venture capitalists making billions from tech investments, but in the case of a social network, the priorities get skewed. If social networks are owned by VC’s and investment banks (such as Goldman Sachs) and other investors looking purely for profit, they gradually become orientated towards one thing and one thing only: making money. How do we mine more data from the users? How do we monetize their every action? How do we get them addicted to paid apps which improve the bottom line? It’s not a bad thing for a social network to make money, but if squeezing every last penny from the user base is the abiding concern, the users aren’t going to get the best possible product.
  • Driven by democracy : The traditional way for social networks to innovate has been top-down all the way. A small group of engineers make key decisions about what features should be made available. Sometimes, brilliant innovators (such as Steve Jobs) can come up with mind-blowing applications nobody knew they wanted. But in many cases, the changes are driven by mundane things such as corporate politics, and the users are forced to adapt to changes because they have no choice.
  • Owned by You: There are dozens if not hundreds of social applications on the web. All of them want your time, and most of them want you to help them grow by referring your friends. But why should you? The only people who benefit when those apps grow are the founders and their investors. They stand to make hundreds of millions of dollars each if their product takes off, so it’s no wonder they keep pressuring you to help them grow.

At Zurker, you are a co-owner and an investor. You can earn vShares by referring your friends. The more friends you invite, the more equity you earn. Zurker becomes better, and better, as more people join, increasing in value. As Zurker becomes more valuable, your stake becomes more valuable.
It’s opened only through referrals:  Join Zurker
