With the immense popularity of the internet there are now innumerable ways to make a few extra dollars in our spare time - without leaving the comfort of our home or office.

Are you aware of any websites that pay contributors for their work? Do you work for any? In your opinion, what are the best websites for making extra money?

Depending on your skills and educational background there are many great options for earning extra cash online. People with a background in teaching might be interested in working for websites such as YourTutor, Maths Online or Oz Tutor. If you have a TESOL qualification there are also opportunities to tutor English language students around the world.

If you're a writer, many websites also pay for good quality content, including Matador, Boots'n'all, iworkwell.com and Viator. There are many other websites as well - google 'websites that pay freelance writers' to learn more. There is also a website called freelancer.com on which writers can bid for jobs, although I've never tried this.

Writing for Weekend Notes is also a good source of extra income. However, since you're paid according to the number of people who read your articles it's a good idea to choose topics that you're certain will be popular over an extended period.

If you're just looking for a bit of extra pocket money, I've also been told that Mechanical Turk and Micro Workers are a good way to earn a few extra dollars. Jobs offered by these sites are short and pretty inane (for example, clicking onto websites and 'liking' You Tube videos - presumably to boost SEO results) but the cents earned all mount up. It's a good way for computer-savy teenagers to make some extra pocket money or to utilise spare time when you're waiting for a train or bus!
Well, well. That is certainly interesting :-)

Thanks Rice!
Also...although I mentioned iworkwell.com, I've never tried it, but just heard about it from a friend. I just logged on to it then, and don't think that it's particularly relevant.
Certainly sounds like there are little money spinners for the aged and/or housebound if they care to look. Nice :-))

I am not aware of any and I would be wondering what kind of thing you could do and how it works. It seems that it would be easy to get scammed doing this and end up not paid. I await answers from the informed . . . . .

Try HubPages, you can write articles on all sorts of topics to earn money through clicks and rewards l. Similar to Hubgarden, but a bit broader in terms of what you can do.
Sorry :( no idea.
I have no idea. These kind of websites don't interest me.
I have tried sites other than HubGarden, where there is no longer much money to be made, however never really got anywhere.
