Many of us in the technology sector no doubt have heard of Bitcoin and the Blockchain by now, the alternative- or crypto-currency (ALTcoin or CryptoCoin) and the underlying infrastructure, respectively.
While the general populace is still getting to grips with what Bitcoin is, and how it works, many tech savvy people are already using it, while the banking cartels know what it is and how it work, but are struggling to implement blockchain technology into their aging infrastructure.
Needless to say, many alternative new ALTcoin or diffferent Crypto-Currencies have sprung up since Bitcoin came into being back in 2009. The first ALTcoin was LiteCoin, many have come and gone since, but a few are very successful, whether that is valued in their monetary value, such as Bitcoin (BTC ~US600), Ether (ETH ~US$12), Dash ( ~US$11), Monero (XMR !US$9), and LiteCoin (LTC ~US$4), or for their functional value, such as NameCoin (NMC, blockchain DNS servcies) and GridCoin (GRC, rewards system for the BOINC computing network). Any monetary value I mentioned above are as of this posting.
Now, you might be asking, what does this all have to do with Internet Search, Fora, and Secondary Income?
Well, first of all, when we do an internet search, we are asking a question to a search algorithm. The traditional search engines like Bing, Google and Yahoo give you the results you seek, and keep any revenue they get from all the advertising mixed into the search results screens.
You might way, well, that is just fair, they did all the work of developing and refining the search algorithm that give you what you want, and the advertisers are paying to have their ads placed in relevant web pages and search results, right?
Now, take into consideration, without your determination and resolve to find what you want via a search, Google would not exist the way we know it today. Without the search the ad placement would be minimal, and Google would probably only make a fraction of their current income.
So why does Google get to keep all those funds? Because they control the infrastructure you are using!
What if I told you, there is a search engine that designed their revenue model to share up to 25% of their revenue with you, the person doing the search?
Such a search engine exists… SearchTrade literally pays you to do searches! They even have an Android App!
At the current time, it is peanuts, about 56 Satoshi per search, I can make more from BTC faucets than from this search engine, but it is a start, for sure. However, unlike a faucet where I need to do stuff, all I have to make sure is that I am logged into SearchTrade and do the search. Simple.
Now, what about the Fora (plural of Forum)?
Well, when you make a forum post, you either ask a question, or post information of various levels of value. Either way, either the question or the information may be valuable to someone else. So why should you not get rewarded for participating in fora?
One such forum is METABTC where you get paid BTC 0.0001 to post. I personally have not posted anything yet, but that’s alright, I generally do not generate that much content, so I will keep it short.
Lastly, to address the Secondary Incomes portion of the title of this post, anything that earns you a little extra on top of the pay you make from your primary profession would be considered secondary income, including what some personalities on the Internet call residual income. Residual income is really a subset of secondary income. If you earn a small trickle of money from a small project, that is called residual income. To me this is all the same, really.
So why is this secondary income important?
First of all, in the economy we are in, and I am referring to the economy at a local, regional, country, continent, and global level here, you cannot guarantee you will have your primary income tomorrow, so it is imperative you have secondary incomes that may pay for a meal or a tank of fuel for your vehicle here and there.
Then, should you lose your primary income, you can either spend more time working these secondary small incomes to make them bigger, or it buys you more time to find a new primary income while the secondary incomes provide you with a longer or easier time while looking to replace the primary income.
So, go out there, and find those additional income streams, and tap them today.
