Toolbar Tip from Oldbuddy
« on: December 26, 2011, 05:04:52 am »
I have seen several people posting complaints that they are not getting credit for searching in the new toolbar. I started thinking "Me Too" for a while, then something occurred to me. I quit thinking of this as a paid to search feature and started just using it when I truly had a search I wanted the results for. Now a week or so later I have 47 searches (which should amount to 11 3/4 cents) and my earnings increased by 7 cents. The bottom line is, that's 7 cents for doing what I would do anyway and once I quit thinking about how much it paid, life went on as usual. Thanks for yet another bonus Fusioncash!

that's a good approach, Old Buddy.  It's one I do with some other sites where the money doesn't kick in right away.  And often, three or four days later I'm very pleased to see the amount suddenly go up.  what is that saying about a watched pot never boils?  And in this case, it's not as if you are doing something you wouldn't do anyway.

I am with you. I have stopped considering whether or not I am getting one cent for every four or five searches. I have searched when I have something to search for and stopped watching to see if I got an extra cent. I have earned 11 or 13 cents from searching using the toolbar. I can not remember exactly what I have earned at this point. I am certain that I will earn more and if it is not working exactly as it should, I am still making more money from FC.  And it is still a great new feature.  :wave:

I Love the search feature on the toolbar. I search for things all the time. I'm making it a point to use it know when I need it. It's an added bonus that I have earned 6 cents! Thanks FC!  :wave: :peace:

Great ideas - how does the credit show up in your account? Is there a separate line item for searches or does it just hit your overall account?

Thats a great way of putting it Old Buddy since i have download the new toolbar i just use it for any search i have been doing online 90% of the time i get the search even if I have to be more detail to find what i'm looking for online!! Of course no one wants to go thru pages pages of results to find what they are looking for!! So its also good if you cant find your results on the first few pages try using different keywords!!

Its a great idea...actually something I did myself.  Unfortunately a couple of days ago I stopped getting any credit at all, and my search count stopped increasing.  Tried uninstalling the toolbar, running ccleaner and reinstalling several times but nothing worked.  Guess I'll fill out a ticket and see what happens.  :dontknow:

It's no use, even with your suggested method of searching i still can't get a valid search. I've been stuck at 6 cents with 31 searches for a week now. I have no choice but to give up and uninstall the toolbar.

i have earned 13 cents so far.  i love this new fusioncash toolbar.  i do a lot of searches on the interent everyday, so i just use the new toolbar to do all of my searches now, and it has really added up fast.  i don't think about it much, and before i know it, i have several cents that have credited.  it's a wonderful and easy way to make money.

One thing I've noticed is that you have to do 4 searches in the same day for it to count as 1 cent credit. I think that might be why some people don't get credit, or not the right amount. I do what Oldbuddy does, and don't worry about the count, only about searching for whatever I need to search. However, I temporarily disabled the FC toolbar, because I kept getting error messages. If I can figure out what's wrong, i'll enable it again.

You missed the whole point. You have a choice to just keep searching and FORGET the pay, you still get your search results, don't you?
