I’ve been reading some online coverage about this new way to earn money online just by uploading documents called DocCash. So, I decided to check it out and found out that its a program launched by Docstoc – a document sharing site similar to Scribd. And DocCash is using Google AdSense revenue sharing scheme to let you earn from the documents you upload on Docstoc.Being a Google AdSense revenue sharing scheme, you take away 50% of the AdSense earnings derived from your uploaded documents. So, the more quality documents you upload and the more you promote those contents, the more earnings you’d hopefully get from AdSense.
DocCash requires that you have a Google AdSense account which you need to share with Docstoc in order for them to run AdSense ads on the documents you upload. Docstoc will be the one to place the AdSense codes on your documents and it is your responsibility to promote the documents for it to generate page impressions as well as click throughs. Obviously, for this to work out, you must upload useful documents.
While this maybe a good way of earning money from documents that you would normall upload and share to document sharing sites like Docstoc, Scribd or even Google documents, I’m just wondering how different it is from creating a directory on your own domain name that you could use to store your documents with your own AdSense code embedded on the page where those documents are listed? Wouldn’t it be more profitable for you and you can take all the AdSense earnings?
But then DocCash is offering a more structured way of presenting your uploaded documents which will be more enticing and search engine friendly. So, there is more chances of users finding your documents and hopefully clicking on the AdSense ads running along side your documents.
If you’re interested in trying out this new online money making venture, you just need to do three things:
- Create and AdSense account if you don’t already have and register at Docstoc
- Upload documents to Docstoc and promote it
- Hope and wait that your AdSense account show some earnings
