Find a Job and Make Money with IPSOJOBS

Ipsojobs is a new job site from Spain that is trying expand their reach internationally. Their first step in that expansion process is to order a ReviewMe review from John Chow dot Com. Ipsojobs focuses on urgent employment. If you’re out of work and looking to get back on your feet fast, Ipsojobs can help. For employers, Ipsojobs offers a completely free way to post your job offers and find an employee fast. Online marketers will be interest in Ipsojobs because they can make money from it. More on that in a bit.

What is Ipsojobs?


When time is of the essence, Ipsojobs offers the swiftest and easiest means of finding employment or filling an urgent vacancy. Posting a job is very straight forward. All the information regarding the job is entered on one form. There is no need to register to the site in order to post or view a job offer. All you have to do is find the city that you want the job posted to and enter the job offer by clicking the Post your job offer link on the top left of the site.


Because Ipsojobs is focused on urgent employment, offers are be posted for only 10 days. After that time, they are be deleted from the database. If you haven’t found anyone by then, you’re free to repost the job.

Currently there are 2,426 active job offers worldwide, with the majority of them being in Spain. This isn’t surprising since Ipsojobs started in Spain. To help expand into North America and around the world, Ipsojobs has came up with a rather innovative revenue sharing plan.

Make Money Online with Ipsojobs

Ipsojobs offers you the opportunity to manage job postings in your city. As a City Manager, you’ll get 50% of the Google AdSense revenue from the advertising displayed in your city. You can request a city if it hasn’t been taken. The application ask for your Google AdSense publisher ID. 50% of AdSense ads displayed in your city will have your own AdSense code and the other 50% will go to Ipsojobs. This type of revenue sharing plans has been used successfully with forums but this is the first time I’ve seen a job site use it. You should set up a custom channel to track the ad performance.

What Are The Duties of a City Manager?

The City Manager has to keep the site clean from spam and inappropriate job postings. You will be given an online tool to check all the job postings and to filter out those job postings flagged as inappropriate.

The more you promote your city, the more traffic it will receive, and consequently, the more you will earn from the Google ads. Ipsojobs estimate that the average time needed to manage a city is around 7 hours a week. This might be higher in the beginning because of promotional efforts. Ipsojobs has a blog post on how to promote your city. This review is the first of Ipsojobs’ promotion plans. Their continued promotional efforts will benefit all city managers.

So far, the only US city that has been taken is New York City. The rest of the United State, all of Canada and most of Europe is up for grabs. If the idea of looking after a job board for 50% of the revenue sounds appealing to you, then better apply for your city now. You can apply for more than one city too.

    Sound really nice, ill check it out.

    1. Do you get booted as the city manager if you do a bad job of moderating?

      1. Agusti Pons says:

        Hi, this is Agusti Pons from

        Actually, you have to do a very very bad job to be booted, if you don’t have at least one job posting showing during some days (total inactivity) and you are one of the least visited cities worldwide (that means less activity that some really small cities in Spain), you are a serious candidate to be booted.

        We want to keep the site clear and inactive cities are not an option to us.

        Hope you understand πŸ™

    Publishing Google adds on a site which I dont own … arrrrrr … I think i am not ready to take the risk. πŸ‘Ώ . Who know, how and when we might be violating an Unheard and Unidentified Terms and Conditions mentioned at prase X of Google … :mrgreen:

    1. I don’t think google ever complained about such a thing. but I too would think twice before putting my adsense account at risk on someone else’s site.

    2. John Chow says:

      DigitalPoint forums have been using this model for years now and has never had one problem with it.

      1. Mystery says:

        Yeah, not only Digitalpoint forums, but alot of other forums and sites….

        Seems that it is time to REALLY read all of google’s TOS.

        1. rhodz says:

          ive read one business model… that they’re offering domains for FREE… same idea.. they wanted adsense on it and other affiliates to be on it.. 50-50 is the scheme.. mmmm..

          in the long don’t own your domain it’s them who owns it.. same concerns being raised.. adsense account..

      2. Yup. From what I understand, google is ok with it 100%.

    3. Mystery says:

      I personally think that I’ll think twice before publishing my adsense ads on someone else’s site….. kindda risky!

    4. Ever heard of revenue sharing forums?

      This is the same thing πŸ˜‰

      1. There are revenue sharing blog sites like Flixya as well…

  3. Very interesting affiliate feature – I hope they are able to monitor the effectivenesss of managers

    1. Or… hopefully not. πŸ™‚

  4. GemViper says:

    John I’m shocked!

    If anyone signs up to this and makes more than a dollar this month, you’d better post back with a screenshot, I’ll fall off my chair.

    “Online marketers will be interest in Ipsojobs because they can make money from it.” umm, no. They’ll more likely realise quickly that doing the dirty for 50% of someone elses penny clicks is about rock bottom.

    Online scammers on the other hand will appply for 50 cities and let the spam build because spam chases away visitors (and they click on ads on the way out). I’m going to check back on this in 30 days.

    1. GemViper says:

      I just want to ad that it “guessed” my city wrong, I live 2500 miles from the city the site guessed me to be in.

      The site also has a major flaw. They have a 160×600 adsense banner running on every page in the sidebar. When it comes time to pop your adsense code onto your job listings pages the site tries but Google denies the attempt.

      Why? Because of the 160×600 ad in the sidebar, you can’t have ads from two accounts on one page so the page defaults to, you guessed it, their ads, not yours. Worse is that since adsense is confused as to what to do it defaults to ads “en espanol” or to companies in spain on many of the tries (where the company is located or the site was built I assume.)

      This one needs work.

      1. Agusti Pons says:

        Hi GemViper,

        I’m the technical manager of

        The site doesn’t guess any city for you, you must go to the worldwide home page and pick your city manually or go to the url of your city, for example or

        The adsense code is decided for each page request, and we put the very same adsense code in all the ads showing in the page.

        The Spanish ads, I think it’s a temporary issue, we don’t control the ads showing it’s a google adsense decision, not ours…

        Thank you anyway for the tips, we are trying to do our best to give a good service to our publishers and job seekers.

      2. Loreta says:

        I think the ads won’t be in Spanish in the future. You have to wait a little.

    2. Agusti Pons says:

      Hi, this is Agusti Pons the technical manager of

      We’re having managers making 3$ a DAY in Spain, with one or two cities, and think we only are 3 months old.

      The scammers are checked by the ipsojobs team, we check every inserted ad, don’t just create the city and let it go on his own.

      We even delete pyramidal scheme job postings because we want to keep the quality very high.

    3. true, you won’t make much money unless it takes off… but I signed up anyways since San Francisco isn’t taken. Thinking about how many Web2.0 companies are in SF… this could blow up if they got on TechCrunch or somethin…

      1. I live near Seattle, and I felt the same way. If it expands, and it could have potential. And if not, then no-harm no-foul. But if it’s big, having a major city can’t be a bad thing…

    4. Everything you said is totally true, you will most probably get more clicks if the visitors are chased out of the site by spam.

      In my opinion it wasn’t a well thought out system. They should have created a system where city managers will get a % cut of the monthly revenue based on how many hits they recieved and how many jobs where posted.

      Relying on adsense on income has been proved wrong many times, and I have no idea why they would opt in for such an option to managed their spam. A full time moderator would have done the job quite satisfactory in my opinion. If they monetize the site correctly they could earn much more than the wage for a moderator.

  5. Raymond says:

    This is very interesting. I’m going to apply for my territory now!

  6. Good post, I just signed up for San Francisco. I ask them for 100% AdSense in return I’d give them free traffic. πŸ‘Ώ πŸ‘Ώ πŸ‘Ώ

    1. Raymond says:

      Through which way you communicate with them?

    2. Please let us all know what you got as a response πŸ™‚

      1. Yey! I got San Francisco! Thanks John for the post! Hehehe…I am gonna trying to direct all traffic there now…

    3. Rock says:

      bah, I didn’t read the comments here before I requested San Francisco. Looks like you beat me to it.

      1. San Francisco Open! Post your SF jobs here:

  7. simon says:

    i just requested Singapore

    1. Etienne Teo says:

      You were ahead of me this time.,., 😈

  8. Varadinum says:

    Sound interesting. I’m going to apply for my territory now!

  9. Raymond says:

    I requested for New York. But I have not receive any email from them after an hour. Have you guys receive it?

    1. Agusti Pons says:

      You have to check your email, we’ve send you a validation message.

      You have to click in the validation link in the email.


      1. David Beroff says:

        I also did not receive an immediate confirmation email. Yes, I checked my spam, etc. Hope I get my city! πŸ™‚

    2. Raymond says:

      Ok. I have received the reply from them. Feel great!
      Good luck to all you you mates. 😎

  10. Raymond says:

    Yes! They have successfully contacted me.
    Good luck to all of you folks. 😎

  11. siyab says:

    Feels great to have the city of Karachi under my control on IpsoJobs! 😎 πŸ˜€

  12. Raymond says:

    I’m sorry.

    I don’t mean to spam the comment. It’s just that it doesn’t appear when I posted it. So I thought it’s the problem with my internet connection and I try it again.

  13. Loreta says:

    It sounds interesting… and it works. I’ve seen the adsense code realoading the page and it changes. Maybe I’ll take Toronto.

  14. Aaron says:

    Revenue sharing will provide a good incentive for people. Though it’ll hardly make someone rich.

    1. I agree, I know a few people on digitalpoint forums recording upto $26/day but this isn’t what I would personally call nice money.

      I think this site will gain users by offering this service, although i dont expect people to be making large sums from this service alone.

  15. I’ll have to pass on this one. Promoting somebody’s site, a new one at that, isn’t very appealing to me.

    1. “I’ll have to pass on this one. Promoting somebody’s site, a new one at that, isn’t very appealing to me.”

      You couldn’t have said it better

  16. James B. says:

    Sounds interesting but ITS ANOTHER REVIEWME!!! πŸ‘Ώ Can we have something besides these. I know you make twice as much money with them than a regular post but i think the readers would agree, We come here for tips not reviews.

    1. Yeah….these Review Me posts are starting to get to me…it’s one thing to post a lot of quality sites…but many of these sites are pretty bad….

  17. will says:

    wait I thought putting multiple adsense on a site can get you banned? then again digital point also does this so I guess not… ❓

    1. Agusti Pons says:

      Hi, this is Agusti Pons, from

      We asked google before starting the site, they answered that there’s no problem in showing different adsense codes in one site.

      Additionally, the very same adsense code you are using in your blog or any other website can be reused in

      Hope this will clarify.

  18. Vortrack says:

    Looks cool to me πŸ˜‰

  19. vankojo says:

    How about blogspot? wordpress? blogsome? and other? Can we talk the service ipsojobs is same? πŸ’‘

  20. paradise5000 says:

    I do not understand why you must have a Google Adsense account in order to earn money with this service?

    1. Loreta says:

      Because your adsense code appears at ipsojobs

    2. Thats the revenue aspect of it since they are offering a % revenue sharing off Google Ads.

  21. All I can say is, THANK YOU JOHN CHOW, for once I was able to read early, and I feel in my heart that this opportunity is real. I plan on giving it all the heart that I do my Jericho Blog, which I have seen pretty good growth from, and now is linked to directly from CBC Offiicial site for the show. Since I have done interviews with the cast of Jericho, and have more to come I think I may be able to talk this one up big time.
    I have all hopes that this getting in on the ground floor of an opportunity will make it for some of us. And I already have the Lexington Kentucky page, and have applied for two more as well near me!
    Thank you again John, you ROCK

  22. Doron K says:

    Hello! I have created a poll to find out β€œThe Best Website to Learn Money Making on the Internet”. You have qualified for the poll. Go to to vote. Make sure your viewers vote as well. Can’t wait to see who comes out on top!

  23. Justin says:

    So if this gets big like craigslist jobs will the moderators be able to bank off it? Whats there to loose in this opportunity? Your adsense account with Google?

  24. Wow. Offering to pay the moderators of the site. Brilliant. πŸ™‚ I love that.

  25. hts says:

    Somewhere above, the owner said that someone makes $3/day. That would be $90/month. Does it sound like a lot? Not to me :). Anyway, the IDEA by itself is great, imo, cause will attract lots of people thinking they`ll get rich over night by administering a job board. Good luck, though.

    1. I wouldn’t go for it just for the $3, good marketing people can make much more than that I assure you. Just imagine someone with the evil marketing skills like John doing it. He’s probably turn a region like Antarctica into the best performing section hehe.

      There are two things that limit the potential to earn more from this site.

      We all know google isn’t the best performer, so why limit us to just google adsense, they should allow moderators to manage their own ad structures using whatever affiliate they would want. I know it’s not easy to implement but I wouldn’t do it for just google adsese.

      The other reason in that I don’t like promoting someone else’s site, they could easily kick me out after months of promotion and hard work.

      Just my 2c

  26. bob says:


    Thanks! I have sign up my city (wellington).


  27. It’s a great idea and one that I had thought of several years ago. I guess you can’t do everything.

  28. I just applied for two high profile cities. Their blog “how to promote your city” has some interesting information. I think if you’re willing to put in a half hour every day, to help start building momentum for your city, there could be pretty good results in the long run for the high profile cities.

    1. Raul Fraile says:

      Thanks Tevin, I wrote that article. If you or anyone have any question, feel free to email me. I usually earn 3-6 dollars a day following those tips. Good luck!

  29. John, thanks for this … thanks for earning yourself some money? Love it! I unsubscribed back during the _terminally_boring_ contest with Shoemoney and just noticed this morning that I was missing my Chow Fix. Wow … first article I see is a winner. Online job boards are hot and the viral income/management recruiting is a refreshing idea. Those who don’t understand the flow of information think that paid posts are somehow “bad”. They are good. Got to go read up more on IPSOJOBS and take care of a review that was just ordered on one of my sites. Press on guy, you’re an inspiration.

  30. Just to let everyone know, I have been contacted back, and now have Lexington Ky, Louisville Ky, and Nashville TN under my wings. This is going to be great! I feel this is an event,not to be missed. I am honored to be in on the ground floor of this company.

  31. Mike Huang says:

    Pretty unique having Mr. Chow review a JOB site πŸ™„


    1. Not really πŸ˜› chow would review anything for the $400 hehe

  32. Hmm..well it’s going to be facing a lot of stiff entrenched competition here in the U.s.

  33. Well, I did a request for Houston. They said it was taken. I checked the list, Philadelphia was not there, so I requested it. No e-mail from them but now Phily is taken.
    I filled another request for Detroit. No answer from them.

    1. GemViper says:

      I’d like an option to add something besides adsense. Figure that one out and you’ll attract a higher quality level of marketer and generate more revenue for the managers.

      Of course you’ll have to then rent out those cities to make anything I suppose, since you won’t get 50% of adsense automaticaly.

  34. Fat Man says:

    this seems cool, but I will check out the site and give it a thorough checking. on the face of it, the city manager idea seems cool.

  35. I’m going to take the chance. I requested and got Oklahoma City. The only problem I see right now is that when I visit a city which has ads I don’t see any Adsense ads. When will these show up? Without Adsense ads how are we to make any money?

    1. Me says:

      I can see the ads in and the rest of the cities

      1. Hmm, sometimes the ads are there, sometimes not. Maybe my AdBlocker is blocking Adsense? 😐

        The correct URL is

  36. MoneyNing says:

    Great business model!! πŸ™‚

  37. Mr.Dollar says:

    Mmmm..interesting, It offers us a lot of opportunitys πŸ˜†
    I’ll be attentive! :mrgreen:

  38. rhodz says:

    i can’t wait to add this to my service site.. :mrgreen: money, money, and money.. just hope they’ll approve my application for a fact that my country is not included in their priority for now.. :mrgreen:

  39. Rodel says:

    are you guys looking forward for an open platform? wherein you don’t just limit adsense… what about us.. placing our fav. affiliate marketing programs on it..

    ey! i need to have Philippines asap! 😈 haven’t got any reply from your end.. it should be mine.. :mrgreen:

  40. Rodel says:

    u guys are fast! :)…tnx.. now im sensing that this comment thread is the alter ego of their Support.. hihi.. :mrgreen: tnx john! .. it pays isn’t it..

  41. mayank says:

    u give the lots of oppourtunity to othre blogger thanks for these suggetion

  42. I only wonder at how the folks who grabbed Boston and NYC were able to post jobs so fast, I have been contacting companies all morning, and so far no reports back.
    If the folks who have those cities who have postings already up would not mind, could you let us know either at the IPSO blog or via email, on how you are successful so fast? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

  43. hts says:

    Boston and NYC are high-profile cities, with LOTS of human resources – people looking for jobs. If you let them know somehow, through somekind of announcement on a local site, lets say, they`ll rush to seek for jobs. Same goes for companies looking for employers πŸ˜‰

  44. If i may
    I went ahead and made a Yahoo group for IPSO Admin’s just in case we needed to touch base or ask for help
    address is
    I am just hoping to find out if there are others who wish to get support or suggestions for how to do the best job at this


  45. Rodel says:

    better lurk on various job related egroups for this one.. 😈 don’t follow this tip.. it’s trade secret! :mrgreen:

  46. Phil says:

    I guess they will add some extra advertising options in the future.
    This site is brand new, but has opportunities. Once they are a little bit established, they will receive a lot of advertising proposals.
    ThatΒ΄s when it becomes interesting. But donΒ΄t forget to request your city in the mean time ! Otherwise it will be to to to late.
