You go to their site and sign up first, then click on the icon for Facebook, Twitter, etc, etc. Then, they increase your balance for going to your favorite site. OK...not much. It is $.005 per click, but that will add up.
You start with $1.00 and joining is free.

In addition, you can set up a favorites list. So, go thru all their sites available and pick the ones you frequent each day or weekly. That way, when you log into your account you click the favorites button and find your site. No searching their database for your favorite website then.
A very slow (but easy) way to earn $. Go here to sign up if interested. They will pay you via paypal once you have reached $10. I heard about this site from Carrie, thanks! When you tell 5 friends about it, you get $5.
***I don't know too much about this site since it is new. I am interested to see how long it takes to get to the $10 payment mark.***
