1. What is TypoBounty.com?
TypoBounty.com is an Impulse Buy Engine™ that seeks to enhance Internet communications between sellers and buyers. Website owners and web surfers are brought together for the purpose of benefiting from one another on a deeper level. Through ReadThrough Marketing™ and TBoofing™, website owners receive insight, improvement suggestions, and corrections, while web surfers receive monetary compensation for their assistance and knowledge about excellent product and service offers.

2. What is the minimum bounty that I can offer for finding my site errors?
Two dollars is the minimum bounty.

3. What is the maximum bounty that I can offer for finding my site errors?
There is no maximum bounty. However, bounties above 100 dollars will require approval before it can be posted.

4. How will I know if an error has been found on my website, email or newsletter?
You receive an email notification when an error is found.

5. What if I don't agree with the error or suggestion that is reported?
Once you are notified about a found error, you have the option to "reject" or "accept" the submission. (A record is kept of rejections and accepting of submissions.)

6. How can I control the amount of money that I have pay out per month for people that find errors on my website?
When you sign up, you are able to set the limits for bounty amount and the number of payments per month that you are willing to pay.

7. What happens if multiple people report the same error?
You only pay the 1st person to report the error. Once an error is reported, it is imperative that the error is corrected quickly to prevent multiple reports. However, your account features a "Too late" button to notify late reporters that they have missed the opportunity. If the error is not corrected on your site within 3 days, it becomes fair game for searchers and the bounty must be paid again.

8. Who pays me for the errors that I find on advertiser's websites?
The individual website owner / representative pays the bounty that is set.

9. Why would website owners pay people for finding errors on their site?
Professionalism is important for making continued sells on the Internet. It adds to credibility for the site to be well maintained and professional. Errors detract from the goal of a website and has a direct affect on the company's sells.

10. Why shouldn't I just tell the website owner about the errors without TypoBounty.com?
You can but we wouldn't recommend it. They don't have any obligation to pay you for your assistance otherwise. Websites owners pay thousands of dollars for professional copywriters and web designers to figure out what will work. This fact has generated various levels of people making money for writing, proofreading and web design. Many times these individuals make mistakes. NO MATTER HOW GOOD A PERSON IS, THEY ALL MAKE MISTAKES and now you can make money for seeing and reporting their mistakes.

11. What do the symbols mean?
ICON Definitions

A Bull's Eye beside a listing means that the website has hidden an intentional error somewhere on the site that they will pay you for if found. This feature is a great way for them to increase traffic to their site as it basically makes their site a treasure hunt by ensuring the searcher that there is something there to find.

A Lock beside a listing means that the listing is there because someone referred them to us and that the referrer has the right to 2 days of scouring the site for the errors that the website has indicated that they are willing to pay for. After two days, the site's errors are open for the public to submit found errors to us. The public can still review the site and have their findings ready for after the two day cut off. They may get a few that the referrer missed. They will check the latest findings before submitting their own.

A Smiley Face beside a listing means that the website owner is in good standing and pays promptly.

A Frown Face beside a listing means that the website owner does not pay promptly and that they have been lowered to the bottom of what ever page they are on.

T, G, L, P, S, B, MG, ? or any combination of the letters beside the listing indicates the type of website error that they are willing to pay for, if found by a member of our site. T=Typo, G=Grammar, L=Link, P=Punctuation, S =Suggestions, B=Bugs, MG=Missing Graphics, ? = Doesn't Make Sense.

The Latest Findings Button beside a listing lets the user browse the latest errors that have already been found on the site. This allows them to avoid wasting time and effort reporting something that they will not get paid for. Only the first person to report it gets paid.

The Circle with A Line Through It beside a listing indicates that they have reached the limit of payouts that they are willing to pay for that month. There is a minimum requirement of two payments per month.

Indicates where the advertising website wants searchers to look for errors single Page, single Directory or Entire Website.

12. How do I report on a website that is not currently advertising with TypoBounty?
When you see a website that needs help or needs to advertise, you simply find their contact information and tell them about us, and what we offer. Then you come to our site and use our "Quick Claim" feature to claim being the one that told the site about us. If the website begins advertising with us within 1 month of your telling them about us, you will receive an email notification of their signup and the site reporting feature will be locked for 2 days. This means, you will be the only person that can submit errors found for that site, for those 2 days. During the 2 day head start, you can scour their website for as many errors as you can find and report them. After the 2-day reserve period has expired, the site reporting feature will be opened to the public.

13. When will the sites I refer sign up with TypoBounty.com?
Individual website owners choose whether they want to sign up or not. There are two steps to "Claiming" a website. The hunter has to "claim' the website and then "notify" them via email that they have errors via an email to them. Remember, you must do both steps? We do not control other websites or website owners. Also, we do not guarantee that that every one that you "claim" will join. The game is to find them and refer them for the potential win. Referring websites to us is almost like playing the lottery with websites. You don't know if you will win but it is still worth doing just in case you do.
We are new. As we grow and become known, more advertisers will sign up.
