Quoting Herr Bert

Now I am getting curious ...

Google doesn't say how much they pay ... but out of curiosity doesn't pay good. (I know they pay per click, but how many clicks would you need to earn a 100 dollar - as an example).

Put it this way, I have about 10 websites that get a total of about 60,000 unique "hits" per day, and it nets me about $6k/mo, no bullshit, not deception, all quality sites/traffic, I dont EVER support spam, popups, blind links etc etc.

The potential in e-commerce is endless, depending how much you are willing to put in to it

WOW. I'm very interested now. How do you market your websites to get 60k hits? What kind of websites are they?
Or is there any where I can read more about it?

Quality content = lots of traffic :)

I am a flight attendant for United Airline and we are hiring now (you need to have an american passport). You don't get a lot of time on your layovers, possibly 2 days internationally, but you can get a lot of time off and fly for free or really cheap. I just had vacation. I was given 10 days of vacation but was able to stretch it almost 4 weeks.

I also started a home based business that will give me the opportunity to stay at places for pennies on the dollar. If you are interested please email me and I will give you my website to check it out.

I work as an Auditor and travel quite frequently but mostly within my country. If I'm going to work as an Internal Auditor for a large multinational company (which I'm aiming for), then there's a huge possibility of travelling overseas.

I wanted to become a pilot. Oh well.

Two ways i have found to be able to travel, and get paid for it:

- paid just a bit (or nothing in the beginning and paid more as you go along): crew on a ship or yacht. look on the web for crew finders. There are several websites that offer the opportunity for people to register as crew. From commercial ships to cruising yachts. I did it and it brought me on a 57ft yacht from the UK to Portugal to the Canary Islands to St.Lucia, onto the BVI... Often no experience is required. Just a sound mind and body :-) It does bring you to exotic places though.. I had offers to sail to the Antarctic, sail across the Pacific etc.. Building up experience will allow you to bring your price up. You need to love the sea, though!

- Doing the work I do, I often get into places where I think 'normally people would pay dearly to come here'. I work for an international humanitarian organisation. I do the work i love to do (started off as a telecommunications engineer). I travel to the most incredible places (been all over Africa, Central America, Middle East and Asia). Get paid for it, and at the same time make a difference for the good of others. Ideal combination, no? A good place to start looking at vacancies is via www.reliefweb.int . They have a list of open vacancies from many humanitarian organisations. Warning though: this work is not a 9-5 job. Actually, it is not just a job, it is a life... (as an inspiration, have a look at my shortstories on theroadtothehorizon.blogspot.com)

Happy trails!

armys pay is quite poor is it not? as in there is a set cap?

here in ireland the US army is reruiting irish citzens to join the US army...one gets straight away cant remember exactly but its in the region of $30000 straight into your account and a US passport! and a single ticket to kabul. british army are also recruiting for irish citizens to join there army. a lot of people do because its the only way of getting a usa passport and been in the thick of it.

however i watched a documentary on the war in iraq the other day and a lot of the army officials interviewed, most of them young boys and some older ones are quite bored in iraq as they havnt seen any action...do the maths hey, maybe because there stuck in the green zone.

im curious with these travelling jobs, but when i had a travelling job i had no time to see things or do touristy things, it was work work work, as soon as the job is done then i would fly of to another country. at night i was too exausted to explore...i imagine its the same with a lot of travelling jobs is it not? travelling jobs sound nice but from my experience i hated it...its not the same as properly visiting and seeing a country.

i have heard if your high up in a global travel agency one gets to travel!!! all the time!!! im talking about a senior manager position now, not the ones that book my tickets for me.

also one of my mates is a DJ and plays in various night clubs in europe...every weekend he flys to a different city to play in a club plus everything is paid for!!!....become a good DJ!:)

how about work on a cruise ship?

the fine print with the US Armys deal of $30,000 enlistment bonus is that you don't get it all at onc, you get chunks of it with your paycheck.
