So here we are near the end of August.

How much extra money have you made in ySense since the first of the year?

I'm at a tad over $800.00. There was at least two months that I did not actively
participate due to other things I had to do. There's been some very good days
and some very poor days. Still, an extra free $800 in my spare time is cool! :P

How's it going for you?

Great topic :) Difficult situation.

1) Last year CS was sold to Prodege and transitioned in August, so earnings include both sites.
2) This year, 2020, the world has been plagued with the China virus genocide, which crushed the economy,
and had a big role in some very low months, probably the lowest in history.

My earnings on ySense THIS year 2020, SO FAR: $747.58
My earnings last year 2019, until this same period: $1103.73 (better, despite 2019 being a declining year even on CS, probably due to the acquisition). What contributed to the lower earnings this year 1) covid19 2) not enough survey invites here, but this changed since July, when samp was added back and more survey invites, July was the best earning month in 8-10 month, so there is $200 out of this $747 that were earned Between July and August so far. Been a very bad year before July.

For context, might as well share my stats for previous years too, starting from 2012, as for some reason 2011 stats are not included.

2012: $449.54
2013: $1101.48
2014: $1248.09
2015: $3053.45
2016: $3463.03
2017: $1168.08 (lower, because that year in Feb was offered a job directly by one of the providers of tasks, that year earned 5 figures from freelance work).
2018: $815.59 (lower, because I was still freelancing full time for an external provider, 5 figures)
2019: $1780.94 (huge difference, I do not think I will get even close to that this year, and it's surprising, because 2019 was a decline year for me on CS!, I guess this can be explained with more surveys and higher pay).

I was fortunate enough to get hired by the very same company that provided all the work in my best years and helped contribute good earnings on CS for me, unfortunately got dealt a bad hand, thanks to a few rotten people.

So I wonder if it is fair to include 2020 due to the pandemic, let's assume there was no pandemic, I will interpolate
earnings across those bad months, and I come to this hypothetical value: This year so far, 2020, without pandemic, I believe I would have earned: $937.xx Still on the low side this year.

In my opinion unless there is another covid19 shakeup this year, things should pick up for the coming months, it's the time of the year where there is lot of academic research + other surveys.

The first half of the year was very promising ($600), but since July close to total collapse. Nonetheless, overall I can´t complain.

I registered here on september 23 rd of 2017. From start, I was only completing surveys, winning an average 15 $ per month.

My total gain so far is $1,250.39. It isn't much money but part of this money is on my bank account (other part i have in the form of a laptop that originally costed 153 $, after taxes ~358$ ( so some were lost in the form of taxes also (import fees, and other taxes :x ).
I bought others items too (i won't list here shirts, eletric shavers etc..(all imported from US), more taxes paid, import fees...and etc :x ) .

And I have 10.14 $ of balance :lol: . I don't know why I didn't transfer it already to my bank account since I rarely start a surveys or task. I summed all my gains And there is more 126.21$ of daily checklist and 80$ of 5$ bonus on tasks.

Giving context to the sum...

Arround april 2018 I started doing tasks (most part of my money came from tasks)...Checking my stats I see that I completed 8331 tasks making $836.16. Most of it on the year of 2018.

My stats also show that I earned $200.99 only with surveys, and $7.02 with offers. This is great because surveys didn't steal, on average, more than a hour of my day to be completed.

Since start of 2019 the good tasks dissapeared. So I just daily check them, just by the force of habit :lol:

This isn't a problem for me since I lost the habit of focusing on tasks. Also, tasks consume too much time or, on another words, the relation time/money doesnt worth most of the time.
Of course I had good days, one day i did arroud 50 $ in few hours.

However, nowadays, I just do the daily check on available task and surveys and go study. :thumbup:

Complete opposite here, it's amazing how things are so different from one country to another, it's though there is a rotator system here, it sure is an amazing coincidence, hopefully the next few months will be better for most people, preferably everyone, Russia, and Trump will save the world from the big bad China virus, and everything will be ALL RIGHT, we will all get back to normal again and surveys will boom :mrgreen: :P

Hmmm surprised of the low activity on the poll, it would be nice to see more members vote to get a better represetnation.

Mmmmm Hmmmm 'rotator' my thoughts exactly.

Hmmmm rotating between their GPT's. One week here, one week there, one week over there,
for rotating between 3 main GPT's.

I don't know why that would happen other than their own curiosity and accounting. Oh I know
it would go deeper than curiosity, it's just a word for lack of my thought at this moment.

Ok parner, you too big for you drawers, you get samplicios at your first one this month, we'll
let you swing it for three weeks at your second one and when that time is up, we'll let you
spread for one week at the third. We can't let you have all these routers going at the same
time parner! We got other parners to think about. Now stop your boohooing you making a
fortune anyway, I got to go watch the Big Valley and Bonanza.


Senior moments I suppose but I will toot my own horn and say, I am rarely totally wrong.

Well D3rva did not vote.

He made a tad over $1,000 this year thus far but no vote displayed for that amount.

No actually I did not mean that, I meant a rotator here on ySense. I would not know what other GPT uses as I am not a member, but I have been observing for a year now how the survey invites work on this site, there are major differences to CS. On CS, the survey invites were more "static", they appeared on the survey list and remained there, this is why you could come at the end of the day and see a long list of invites, come back the other day and see the same invites from previous day. That was a good and bad system, it had its pros and cons, it created more potential earnings, BUT with a side effect of many expired surveys still on the list, and having to go through more surveys to get a complete. I noticed this because on ySense because my click to complete ratio has been nearly 3x better. I wish I could say the same for earnings though :D On ySense, the survey distribution seems more dynamic. One minute you see a dozen surveys on your list, and the next refresh you see 2, a few minutes later you see 10 new invites, previous ones are gone. Some members here wondered how come they click some survey invites and it instantly redirects back without status - it's likely that the invite is no longer relevant, and they are clicking it from the original page that was not refreshed. This is a recurring pattern I've been noticing from day 1 here, a dynamic distribution - this is good, BUT it has some cons. You might miss some surveys if you are not active and periodically refresh the list, on the up side, you might get more surveys for less clicks / attempts, BUT. (big buts here :D) better ratio does not mean better earnings.

By rotating I meant this, it's not uncommon for a group of people here to say that they are doing very well, whilst another group is reporting doing very bad... BUT suddenly that group that was doing very well reports doing very bad, and the group reporting doing very bad is doing very well.

Sine July I have been doing better here, Yet Tasman1 has been doing bad, now normally his stats are better than mine, and when they are, I generally am doing bad. SO this recurring pattern I am seeing can either be 1) just a fluke, a rather odd coincidence OR 2) I'm on to something and I discovered the secret of the universe as we know it :P
It's just that this observation is based on 1 year - so it sure is an amazing coincidence. HOPEFULLY this site can eventually make sure as many countries as possible can have the most earning opportunities available to them, by enabling all routers whenever possible - so that the only factor remaining would be a user's profile and interests that determines his/her survey success.

Uhuh, so you get the general idea :P NOW, CS ran as a successful rewards site without using such a rotating infrastructure, right ? So this site can do the same, assuming it is even using a rotator, maybe it isn't, this is just pure speculation at this point and not fact, even though the evidence is compelling, but it is based on own observation and a limited sample data.

Since Prodege runs those multiple sites, I am pretty sure that whilst the different sites may have their unique look, they all must share some common "core" or infrastructure, it's very unlikely, and would be costly, if each site was maintained on different code, and no develop wants to maintain code for different sites for the same company, it's costly, so there must be a common infrastructure that powers all Prodege sites. Now for ySense I'm sure that they must have done some important changes to adapt and integrate as much as possible CS's features into the new system, but in my opinion, and I am fairly confident about it, the survey infrastructure (back end) is likely common, or parts of it anyway, with specific flags to activate whatever on different sites, so it would make sense to use a dynamic distribution over a static one.

@D3rva - Good job, nice stats you got this year, I think in your case some good highly paid tasks helped boost this number. Those are good YTD numbers considering the bad previous months due to pandemic shut down.

Yep, I knew what you meant, sort of 'rotator'. I was just sayin.

D3rva completed a $399 offer and got a hefty bonus too.
