The Bottom Line An easy to use pay to click site that really will pay.
I am updating my opinion on Search Cactus. After about two weeks of disappointment is time to wake up and smell the coffee. I made my first $20 easily and was looking forward to making more and using the site regularly. But its seems as though the site is rigged to keep me from earning anymore. I used to get in my 20 searches very quickly and easily. Now it takes about 20 search words before the site will bring up a paying link for me. Does it do this on purpose to those who've already earned a first check? I'm very suspicius. Even those search words that used to never fail such as sex or gambling never bring up anything anymore.
The last straw came today when my referral told me he signed up but never got the confirmation email he needs to get started. I also discovered that each click now only earns 1 cent instead of two with a maximum per day of 25 cents instead of 40. At this rate its no longer worth it.
Awhile back I went on a 'make money online so I can quit my job' kick. I signed up for as many pay to click programs as I could find. I've given up on all but two and Search Cactus is one of them. The vast majority turned out to be scams that could take forever just to earn a few pennies while crashing the computer and overwhelming me with ads. Some get out of paying by letting you think you are earning big money and then kicking you off the program by accusing you of fraud. Search Cactus is the first that does none of these.
You get paid 2 cents per search for up to 20 searches a day. This is 40 cents a day. Doesn't sound like much, but it adds up. Simply type in search words and when the yellow icon appears next to a link you will get paid for clicking it and staying at the site for at least 20 seconds. The only annoying part is the pop up add that comes up every time you first log in, but this is easily gotten rid of. You can only click the same link once every few days, so you must be able to come up with a lot of new search words. After awhile it gets harder to think up words you've never tried so you can't always get a full 20 searches per day. Nonetheless, it does add up, so its well worth it to try stopping by the site every day to get in as many as you can.
Most importantly, Search Cactus really sends the check as promised. Once you reach $20 or more, simply click the 'get my check' button. A check will be sent by the 25th of the following month. The check comes promptly after that. Its a fairly quick and easy way to get a few extra bucks in the mail now and then. You can also earn money through the usual sign up for offers avenue that many other sites offer.
Search Cactus is the only easy to use and honest pay to click program I've found so far. Its definately worth using and I'll be doing so for as long as they remain around.
