For those of you that have not heard about Mahalo yet, this post, Mahalo: Another Way To Make Money Online, will give you the introduction you need to get familiar with this online opportunity. Briefly speaking, Mahalo is a Human Powered Search engine which is composed of a community of people that post questions and answers. The difference between Mahalo and other similar websites of the genre is that you get paid for participating. This is probably, and I quote, “one of the easiest ways to make money online”.
There are basically 4 ways to earn money with Mahalo. They are all outlined on the referenced post above and once again, I highly suggest you give it a try, if it is making money you are looking for. Mahalo pays like clockwork and through PayPal. I can vouch for this based on my personal experience. To date, I have not had any problems getting paid by them. This is not a sales pitch as I am not earning anything to write this post.
Make Money With Google AdSense Without An Account?
You may be wondering how is it possible to make money with Google AdSense without an account. This is particularly interesting for those who like the program but for some reason don’t have it. You might have been banned, not approved, or simply do not want to carry it on your blog because you are running other alternatives to AdSense.
One form of making money with Google AdSense is by joining websites that have revenue sharing program. This might not be new to you, but the fact is, to make money with AdSense you need good amount of traffic and this is where the new Mahalo way, gets interesting. Mahalo now has has started a beta test for sharing Google AdSense revenue generated on question pages with the asker and best answerer. Revenue is split three ways, in Mahalo dollars, up to a maximum of of M$100 ($75) per asker and best answerer (M$200 total, M$100 each). The more questions and best answer you have, better are your chances to earn more money. Google AdSense revenue for the asker begins accumulating after a question is posted. Revenue for the best answerer begins after the best answer is selected. You do not need an AdSense account because it is Mahalo’s account that is being used. Since this website is credible, there is no problem at all.

If any users clicks on that link, it will take them to your question and here, there will be AdSense ads displayed. See example below:
