Sunday Search Queries, Seventh Edition

April 6th, 2008

search-query-share.jpgAlthough I have slowed down on posting somewhat during the past week in order to gather more articles and take care of other tasks, search traffic volume is still holding steady at around 200 queries per day. The past two weeks of searches have produced some interesting questions, a few of which I do not yet know the answers for but can still research later. For now, I will pick the next eight in the list that I already know without having too spend too much time on while chasing down the answers.

what is 1000 points equal to on mysurvey — 1000 points is equal to $10 on MySurvey.com. This happens to be the minimum payout threshold also, so if you reach this amount, you can go ahead and request a check. Based on my experience, the payment will take about 2-3 weeks to arrive.

globaltestmarket.com legit? — Yes, GlobalTestMarket is definitely legitimate, at least in terms of sending adequate numbers of surveys and making payments as promised. A few days ago, I received my second check from them for $60. You can see the scanned copy of my first $50 check from them here.

what do you do when atm eats your card — According to what I have read elsewhere, some people have been able to get their cards back by simply going into the bank building where the ATM is located and explaining the situation to the bank managers there. In some cases, they have equipment that can pry open the ATM and allow you to retrieve the card. If this does not work or is not practical, you can always notify your bank of the situation and request a replacement card. Sometimes you can even do this online — with USAA it is possible to log in to our online accounts and click on the link that says “Replace lost or stolen card” and select the proper account. New cards are sent by postal mail and usually take 3-7 days to arrive.

does bum marketing work? — Yes, it certainly works, although it does require some initial effort in writing or outsourcing articles, getting these published in the article directories or on your own site, and matching up salable products to keyword topics. However, it does not require significant amounts of money to get started and can be built up slowly on a part-time basis. For more information, see my main bum marketing article that explains how to implement this process.

pinecone research a scam? — No, in fact this is one of the better paid survey companies out there. If you can manage to find one of their banners and get accepted, they will pay a consistent $5 for every survey. Better yet, they do a good job of pre-qualifying participants, meaning that if you do receive a survey from them, there is a very high probability that you will actually be able to complete the survey and get paid. Their payments are also some of the fastest in the industry, especially if you switch to the PayPal option after receiving your first check payment. For more information, see Pinecone Research Payment Report.

dinner major tasks — OK, let’s see…

  • Decide what you actually want to have for dinner.
  • Gather the necessary ingredients.
  • Cook food.
  • Eat food.

If you decide to order food from a restaurant instead of cooking your own meal at home, you can skip steps 2 and 3.

can states mandate a lower min wage than federal — No. Although there are still a few states that technically have lower minimum wages than the federal mandate, the federal laws always take precedence, meaning that employees can never (legally) be paid less than the current federal minimum wage.

HOW TO GET TROGEN VIROUS DANGEROUS — One of the easiest ways of getting a Trojan virus is to click on links or attachments from Spam emails, especially ones that promote free software from unknown sources such as last year’s Maxiptrader HYIP download. It is also possible to pick up Trojans by surfing lots of spammy sites without any type of antivirus protection installed, which can also result in slowing down your system with unnecessary adware. As far as I know, Trojan viruses cannot be obtained from handshakes, toilet seats, or even casual sex, although having unprotected sex can result in contracting certain other kinds of viruses besides Trojans.

    Does the graphic actually represent the percent of searches by search engine? If so, that’s very cool!
