    Meh, found this place a while back. Anyone actually get money from it?

    Hope this isn't advertising.....just looking for opinions/ see if it's a ripoff.

    whoa, this sounds too complicated for me. :lol:

    It's probably like greasypalm.com where you like fill in surveys for money etc
    I don't know if it works either, will visit chacha.com later.

    it's a search engine where real "guides" get paid to help the people searching... You pick "keywords" that you are knowledged in.. etc. Read the wiki edit.

    But that's an interesting way to provide info to searchers.

    A UK one would be nice. Apparently those free 360's etc.. are real too according to a couple of members on here, but I'm not sure til I have all details first :)

    So basically, If we all wanted to be a 'guide' on the site, the chances are slim. I've skimmed through the wiki article and a 'master guide' has to send you an invite to become a guide, and the chances of anyone knowing a master guide or guide for that matter are pretty slim. Sounds cool and legit though,

    It sounds pretty cool, especially being paid, but I don't want to let my guard down around sites that I don't know that much about.

    Same, I always think it's too good to be true, even when it's been proven to work to me [​IMG] I always think there's a catch.

    Well Im searching on the site, and the so called guides don't even connect to me, and when one finally does come up, they are useless.
    It's a bit stupid really..

    Sounds cool...
    But these things always have a catch especially if they need your bank details

    I don't think you lot understand, I said in my post above how it works. It is all legit, the only catch is that you probably wont be a guide unless you know a 'master guide' really well, or well enough for them to send you an invitation to be a guide. Then you will get paid for helping everyday users, it's all okay, I think anyway :rolleyes:
    Lee

    Edit - It is quite good actually, here is what I and a guide were saying. Note that I bolded me (you).

    Vernon(79508): Welcome to ChaCha!
    You: Hello
    Vernon(79508): Hello thanks for choosing chacha for your search I will try to find what you are requesting
    You: ok, well I am trying to find really low prices for wii games and accesories
    Vernon(79508): ok
    You: But I want a secure site, so I know it is safe to shop online
    Vernon(79508): I will be happy to help with that
    You: thankyou :)
    Vernon(79508): Thanks for being patient! Rest assured I'm finding the most relevant results for your search.
    You: Aw thankyou , this is the first time on chacha, its quite good
    Vernon(79508): just running a little slow today
    Vernon(79508): lol
    Vernon(79508): lot of searchers are on
    You: Getting quite popular then :)
    You: Do you actually get paid well? How does it work?
    Vernon(79508): about 50 cents a search
    Vernon(79508): that is for 6 mins
    You: So it is not available for england yet?
    Vernon(79508): not yet
    You: hmm ok :)
    Vernon(79508): they should
    Vernon(79508): it would be great around the world
    You: Yeah, so how did you get to be a guide?
    Vernon(79508): just filled in the app
    You: Oh that's cool
    Vernon(79508): took the quiz and then they you go I was a guide
    Vernon(79508): lol
    Vernon(79508): Please RATE ME. Thanks for using ChaCha.
    Status: Session ended.


    So yeah, all he did was fill in an app form and he was a guide. 50 cent a search, that's cool. I wish i lived in America :\

    That vernon guide guy seemed to rush off though, I had a more patiant guide earlier. chacha is quite fun actually :lol:
