Welcome to GlobalReviewChannel (GRC), the fast growing review channel website where you can find and share information of various products and services around the globe.
Here is some useful information for the new members:
Q. Do I have to pay any money for joining?
A. No. All our services including revenue sharing program is free and anyone around the globe can JOIN FREE .
Q. How much money I expect to earn from this site?
A. That completely depends on how much you contribute and how much quality time you devote. Don't make a mistake that it is an avenue of easy money. Yes, there are people who make thousands of dollars per month from Google AdSense, but GRC is still small and growing.
Please keep in mind that it may take several weeks to start getting reasonable revenue. Once you start earning, your revenue will most will be in ascending curve.
Q. What are the avenues of earning from this site?
A. In addition to contributing new products, services businesses, reviews and articles, one of the primary goals of GRC is to help members to earn revenue by doing part time work for GRC. You can work from your home, office or browsing center, at your free time.
Main earning avenues are:
1. Earn Cash Credits directly from GRC for posting content in various sections like Products, reviews, resources and even taking part in the discussions and helping other members in forum
2. Earn Google advertising revenue share through GRC. In general, you will get 90% of the Google Ad revenue from the contributions of yours in this site.
3. Earn cash prizes and credits from us through various competitions, which are announced time to time.
Q. What are Cash Credits?
A. Cash Credits are the money we add to your GRC member account. This money will be paid to you when it reaches a minimum payout level. The payout level changes time to time and at present fixed at Rs. 1000.00
How can I earn Cash Credits from GRC?
Almost any quality contribution from you in the site will fetch cash credits. Contribute meaningful to any section including the forum. Remember two points while contributing -
i> Do not copy from any published material or web site. Those will be rejected straightway. Copying is accepted only in the specification section of any product.
ii> Try to add common keywords in the description and review. For example: (Battery life of Nokia 5800) (after sales service quality of Samsung) etc. and make them bold. The better the key words more the cash credit. Reverse also holds true.
This means not necessarily a long article will fetch more cash
Q. What is Google AdSense revenue sharing program?
A. In addition to being a major search engine company, Google is an Advertising company too. You can see several text Ads in this site, labeled with "Ads by Google". These Ads are displayed by Google, on an agreement between GRC and Google. When any visitors of this site click on any of those text Ads, we get paid.
After you register for an AdSense account, we will use your AdSense account to display Advertisements in the pages having your contributed content. Google will pay you 90% of the Ad revenue from your pages (10% of the revenue will be paid to us by Google as commission).
To participate in this program, you must first create an account with Google and wait for approval from Google. GRC is not involved in this process, other than allowing you to create AdSense account through a special page in GlobalReviewChannel.com. In general, Google accepts all applications, unless you provide wrong information or try to cheat them. If Google reject your application, you won't be eligible to make money through this program.

Pay per click
The revenue is generated from Google Ads when someone clicks on an Ad. You are strictly not allowed to click on any Ads. If you click yourself on any Ad, Google has very advanced systems to track it and your account will be disabled within few weeks. When your account is disabled, all the money you earned until that date will be canceled.
Q. Is there a Fee to join Google AdSense program?
A. No, Google AdSense offers free registration. However, they have a very strict review process. You must contribute few weeks in GRC before you can apply for Google AdSense program.
Q. Does GRC use advertisers other than Google?
A. Yes, from time to time, we use various other advertisements also. This is in addition to the normal Google AdSense Ads. The revenue from other advertisements is not shared to members directly. Such revenue will be used to give gifts, cash awards, other expenses etc.
Q. How do GRC makes the payments to members?
A. When a member earns money from GRC, we give 'cash credits' to the member. Cash credits are equal to cash, but the amount will be paid to members only when it reaches a minimum limit of Rs 1000.
The money will be transferred to your account through net banking after receiving you bank details.
Remember that your earnings from Google AdSense program are tracked directly by Google and we have no role in it. The payments from Google are completely different from payments from GRC.
Q. What is "Points"?
We evaluate each and every post from you and assign points based on the quality of the content. This is called 'Revenue Score'. Your earnings and gifts/awards may be based on this. The more points you get, the higher the chances you have to get cash awards and payments.
The points assigned to content vary by category as well as quality of the content. Also, when any content is posted, our system automatically assigns some points based on certain rules. This page shows the default points assigned in each category.
A. Is "Points" same as money?
No. Points are used only to determine your member level. Points indicate the quality of your post. In some section where we pay cash, the payments may depend on the points you received.
Q. What are Member Levels?
A. Based on the total points earned by a member, we promote members to various levels like Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond, Platinum etc. Higher level members enjoy additional benefits like automatic approval of their content, annual bonus, profit share etc.
Q. Who verifies the content posted in GRC?
A. We have editors who review each and every piece of content posted in GRC. Depending on your member level, in some categories, your content may be auto approved. They will be still reviewed by our editors within few days. Content posted by new members will be reviewed and approved/rejected within 1-7 days.
