For all the current or future Swagbuck users out there here is what I consider to be the easiest way to earn on SwagBucks. And… this is the only way I even bother to earn on this site because its so darn easy.
If you know me then you know that I love to test and try out new ways of making a little extra money online. SwagBucks has been my favorite GPT (get paid to) site for a while now and I have tried and tested out all the ways to earn but this is the only one I am sticking with.
What Is It?
In my opinion the easiest way to earn SB is by using the SwagBuck search engine. This is super easy to do and you don’t have to go out of your way at all when it comes to using it. You can just search the web as you normally do and earn SB for doing so.
When I started using SwagBucks way back in the day I was taking surveys, playing games and all sorts of things to try to earn more SB. But most of these ways are pretty much a waste of time as far as I see it. Searching the web using their search engine isn’t going to earn you much but you literally spend no extra time doing so.. and that is why I still use it.
How It Works
Its pretty simple how it works.
You can use the search engine by doing 2 different things. 1) you can go to Swagbucks and you will see the search bar at the top of the dashboard when you are logged in. You can use this bar just as you would the search bar on Google or Yahoo. And 2) you can set up the SwagBucks search to be your default search engine on your computer. This way when you type in things into the your internet browser URL box it will automatically use SwagBuck’s search.
You can expect to be awarded 3 – 5 SB for doing a handful of searches. I am not sure how and when they decide to give out swagbucks but that number is something you can generally expect. Its not like you get a certain amount per search or anything like that. Its somewhat random as far as I can tell.
After accumulating enough SB you can then redeem them for things of real value such as gift cards, PayPal cash, charity donations, and other things.
Is The Search Any Good?
What I mean by this is “does it provide good search results?”. Of course you aren’t going to want to switch from using Google to using the SwagBucks search if its not going to be a very good search engine.
So is it? The answer is yes… its good.
When it first came out it was powered by Yahoo. So you would get the same results when you were searching the web as if you were using the Yahoo search. But I’m not sure if it is still powered by them. They used to say it right on the search page “powered by Yahoo” and that has since been removed.
But nonetheless it is a good search engine. Its not as good as Google of course, but there is no search engine in my opinion that is comparable to Google. Google just has a way of bringing you the relevant results you are looking for better than others.
How Much Will You Make?
The answer is not much. I don’t want to get too much into this but just know that you won’t make much at all. If you are looking to make good money online then this isn’t for you.
Searching using their search engine is going to make you minimal earnings but its still worth it in my opinion because you aren’t doing anything extra. You simply search the web like you are going to do regardless and every several months you can redeem your points for a gift card or something.
What I Suggest
If you aren’t using Swagbucks search then you are selling yourself short. I do suggest that you use it if you are a member of SwagBucks or if you are interested.
I also recommend that you set this search engine to your default search engine within your browser. This way you don’t have to go to their website to perform a search. You just search as normal.
You can make this your default search engine if you are using Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer. For other browsers I am no sure. You can learn how to set this up here.
Anyway… this is what I consider to be the easiest way to earn SB by far. Its a great way to earn without doing a thing and it can be a nice little reward. Just don’t expect to earn much.
If you are looking to make good money 0nline then sites like SwagBucks just aren’t going to cut it. What I would suggest in this situation is that you take a look at how I make money online.
