Make Money Online with Site Hoppin’ Beer Stock

Buy Beer Stocks

Sitehoppin’ is the brain child of Zedomax. Max is pretty good at spotting trends and jumping on them. When he saw how the Million Dollar Wiki took off, he went and started the One Buck Wiki, the Five Buck Wiki and the Quarter Wiki. When he saw how big Digg got, he went and started Wagg It. Now Max is back with his newest venture, Site Hoppin’, which is the subject for this review.

What Is SiteHoppin’?

SiteHoppin’ takes its name from bar hoppin’ and is like a cross between the Million Dollar Wiki, Stumble Upon and EntreCard. SiteHoppin’ allows users to submit their own sites, discover other sites, earn beer credits and buy and sell Beer Stocks.

The easiest way to experience all this is to sign up for an account. Only registered users may submit their sites to the SiteHoppin’ database. In addition to submitting your site, you’re free to recommend any site you find interesting (like Stumble Upon).

To hop from site to site, you just press the SiteHoppin’ button on the upper left hand corner. Every time you press the button, you hop to a new site and earn one Beer Credit. If you rate the site you hopped to, you’ll earn 5 Beer Credits. Other ways to earn credits includes:

  • Tagging or Comments using our “Tag” function = 20 Beer Credits
  • New Site Submission = 30 Beer Credits
  • Click from your site to SiteHoppin through the Beer Widgets = 50 Beer Credits

Every 10 Beer Credits gives you one hop to your site. Build a million credits, get 100,000 visitors. That’s how it should work anyway. However, SiteHoppin’ has a major flaw in its credit system. Users are allowed to put the hops on auto surf by clicking the Slideshow Mode button. This mode is suppose to let you surf the internet like an iPod but it can be used as a cheat – engage Slideshow Mode, go to bed, walk up in the morning to thousands of Beer Credits. If the Slideshow Mode gets abused too much, traffic quality will suffer tremendously.

SiteHoppin’ Beer Stocks

SiteHoppin Beer Stocks are essentially web pages that allow you to buy into a “shared percentage” of the site’s total web traffic. When you buy Beer Stocks, you become co-owners of shared web traffic received by SiteHoppin.com. In addition, Beer Stock owners can participate in a two-tier Beer Stock Affiliate Program.

The Beer Stocks are paid Wiki pages. Stock prices are $1 per consonant and $10 per vowel. So, the page for Brew cost $13. You can monetize the page anyway you like. You can even embed your own site into the page, like the owner of Blog did.

Benefits of Beer Stocks

Beer Stocks has several benefit over earning free Beer Credits. Beer Stock pages received a reserved 33% of all SiteHoppin’ traffic. For example, if the site gets 100,000 views per day and there’s 100 Beer Stock pages, each page gets 100,000 / 3 / 100 = 333 views per day. At the time of this review, there are less than 50 outstanding stocks.

Stocks can be resold on the Beer Stock Market. The Beer Stock Market is for private sales of Beer Stock owners. No commission is taken by SiteHoppin’. The current highest asking price for a stock is $500, for the “Business” keyword.

Two-Tier Affiliate Program

Beer Stock owners are automatically enrolled into SiteHoppin’ two-tier affiliate program. Beer Stock owners can offer new customers 25% discounted with their affiliate link. If the customer makes a purchase, the affiliate receive 25% commission. This setup makes it cheaper for someone to buy Beer Stocks from an existing affiliate than to buy direct from SiteHoppin’. You earn 15% of all net profit on the Beer Stocks when your affiliates sell Beer Stocks through their affiliate link.

This two-tier structure has allowed SiteHoppin’ to expand quite quickly. At this moment, a check of the site shows 59 members and 2,256 guests online. Not bad for a Sunday weekend.

At the very least, SiteHoppin’ is another way to generate traffic to your blog. It’s free to join and have your site listed so I don’t see any reason not to sign up. My recommendation for SiteHoppin’ is to get rid of that Sideshow Mode. The potential for abuse is just too great.

    Get review John. I have found sitehoppin to be a great tool. I site hop daily and have a few beer stocks of my own. Both regular beer credits and beer stocks are a good source of traffic.

    1. Yes, these kinds of sites can be very good for generating additional traffic, but the traffic IS lower quality. I’m signing up!

      1. I jumped on early. I learned about site hoppin’ when they appeared on my EntreCard widget. Great site. Glad to see the review.

        1. Robert says:

          Does it amount to the same kind of poor traffic that Entrecard generates?

  2. I will sign up right away.

    1. Ditto – I am amazed at the commentor who said he recieved more traffic from SiteHoppin than Entrecard. I am sure a lot of people are kicking themselves for not getting in on it earlier.

      :mrgreen:

      1. Sava says:

        Me to. I’m signing up right now 😀

  3. Josh says:

    I am getting twice the visitors from Sitehoppin than that of Entrecard, plus only have the bounce rate of Entrecard.

  4. Clickaton says:

    The concept is decent but I feel it could be stronger. There are some flaws that John pointed out. This is a very innovated new type of advertising.

  5. Car345.com says:

    Very good review. I like sitehoppin. Max always finds and gets good stuff. Good luck Max.

  6. Chetan says:

    Saw this on many blogs, but didn’t understand the concept behind it.
    Thanks for clearing that in the review!

  7. Thanks a lot! I got a clear idea from this review.

  8. kgaihc says:

    Already a member of Sitehoppin.. it generate more traffic with a lower bounce rate as compare to entrecard. After this review, there sure to be a surge in Sitehoppin’s membership.

  9. SiteHoppers says:

    Hey, thanks John for the review, although it was paid review (not by us), lol…

    Cheers~

      1. Hannah says:

        Do you know who it was??

        1. Ty Hurd says:

          1st – Sitehoppin’ is awesome! Max is great, not only because he’s a bright bulb and has come up with a great idea, but because he’s a good guy and is quick to reach out to help others (he’s hooked my up here and there).

          And yes, I know who paid… 😈 The bloggin’ world is a small world… It doesn’t really matter because he’s a good guy with a great idea and deserves it (Alright fine- hint: visit http://www.joshwhitford.com to find the angel).

          And on a self promotion note, wanna buy some beer stock and get 25% off? Here ya go: http://www.tysblog.com/go/sitehoppin.php

          John chow – you rock! Now, how about that interview? 🙂 I saw you on my blog…

          Peace everyone – cheers to your success!

  10. Chetan says:

    Btw John, this is what i wanted to mention to you about your site design.
    Sometimes it does not show the post at all, until i refresh it 3-4 times.
    Using latest version of firefox in Win XP.

  11. Blogmastr says:

    Gosh, you know what…I signed up. The concept seems good enough. But the site is so confusing! And cluttered and confusing! But I think I’m getting a hang of it…I’ve started hoppin’ – that seems easy enough. Maybe when I get a bunch of these credits I’ll add my site…

  12. kgaihc says:

    Already a member of Sitehoppin.. it drives more traffic with lower bounce rate as compared to entrecard. After this review, I am sure there will be a surge in Sitehoppin membership.

  13. Azrael says:

    I already heard of it before but I thought that it was just another blog. Thanks for the review!

    Now, I know that I can use it to get more traffic, I will be signing up.

  14. jatt says:

    I Saw this on many blogs, but didn’t understand what is all about.
    Thanks for clearing that in the review!I’m looking forward for your latest post!

  15. Ashley says:

    Seems very complicated for a fairly small amount of traffic. But it also seems like one of those ideas that if it does take off, it could be huge.

  16. sksee82 says:

    I’ve wrote a couple of articles on SiteHoppin.com. Feel free to drop by my site and search for SiteHoppin. Now that John Chow has endorsed SiteHoppin.com, the Beer Stock prices are going to go up the roof. Of course you can purchase beer stocks from affiliates/current owner of Beer Stocks such as myself for a 25% discount.

    Max did mentioned sometime ago that the sooner or later SiteHoppin is going to get the attention of John, looks like what he said finally came true!
    Cheers and Happy Blogging to all!

  17. Jason says:

    Pretty cool. I’ve heard about it plenty of times; just never knew about the stocks. I figured it was just another traffic exchange.

    Purchased two pages myself.

  18. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I have seen everything now. Chow is making money with beer. I will have to say that the beer commercials do look refreshing and thirst quenching. The fact that it is produced by microbes and a fragrance is somewhat as urine the media has made it quiet glamorous.

  19. I’ve been there from the beginning, Max is great, when i launched my site, between sitehoppin, entrecard and social sites my 1 week old site was getting 10,000 hits a day here is link http://www.dailytechnologyimpressions.com/social-sites-entrecardsitehoppinpowerdropping10000-hits-a-day-1-week-old-site/ , and i own that blog page. its a great service

    1. Robert says:

      This is very interesting. But is the traffic you’re getting valuable? I found that my EC traffic was just people coming to the site and dropping their EC card without reading anything.

  20. Robin says:

    I like the concept but the implementation at this point seems disastrously poor. The SiteHoppin’ site is so badly designed as to be almost unnavigable, and even what does work is horrendously ugly.

    If it does take off then it looks like a solid idea, but it’s never going to pick up “passing traffic” in terms of users without an interface that makes some sense.

  21. John,
    You seem to have an unlimited supply of moneymakers. Good reading habit, I guess… To write more you need to read more 🙂 that’s what is missing with many (like me)

    Regards,
    Ajith

    1. Chetan says:

      John writes himself and also has many guest writers 🙂 making it very active process here!

  22. Predeep says:

    sitehoppin is good to generate traffic ( i my self never get more then 3/4 visitors from it though)
    but i know lota blogger who praise this site. I always thought they are just trying to increase their content or they are in association with sitehoppin in some way buy your article cleared my doubt and now i know why those people where so enthusiastic about sitehoppin

  23. When John publish about an advertiser I give credit to the advertiser. John Chow is the best ads checker.

  24. robert says:

    OK I will give it a try.

    P.S Note for the faint hearted.

  25. robert says:

    Still can’t figure out how to submit mysite after 10mins.

    1. Jason says:

      Robert if your still having trouble getting your url. You go to the submit URL http://sitehoppin.com/SiteHoppin:Bookmark and add it then go to your user panel and add it to “Your Hop Url:”

      1. Robert says:

        I can probably follow those directions, but the site does seem to have a problem with being “user-friendly.”

  26. i use site hoppin from 3 month and yea they improve it every day and it help in having good traffic for your website

  27. Hi John, why you didn’t approve all comments?! Was a apreciate comment not with an injury.

    I the last comment I sad that advertisers promoted by you are trusted for me … give me a extra trust …

    best regards

  28. nice review…
    i will sign up now…

  29. lol what an interesting concept

    1. Chetan says:

      And a bit weird too for first timers there!
      It was totally confusing first time i visited it.

  30. Robert says:

    This sounds like a good idea, and I agree that the slideshow mode is insanely flawed. Some bloggers have WAY too much time on their hands and will abuse that aspect of the site.

  31. Azrael says:

    I just sign in but I can’t understand how does this work because the site is a bit messy.

  32. Bruno says:

    “Max is pretty good at spotting trends and jumping on them”
    Nice euphemism.

  33. Max is one smart cookie! Great job Max and great review John

  34. Mike Huang says:

    Hey John Chow,

    If you did a bit more research, Max mentioned that he WANTS people to cheat his system 🙂 He made a video telling hoppers how to just set it on auto, so it isn’t really a flaw 😛

    -Mike

  35. Mike Huang says:

    Also, it’s not really considered “abuse”. This is a free system to gain free traffic 🙂

  36. Wade says:

    I am signing up right now. Any extra traffic is worth it for anyone who is already on digg, stumble, delicious, facebook…

  37. Hannah says:

    I don’t like the idea of buying pages. It just seems to me at this point that SiteHopping is trying to do too much. And as had been mentioned, the useability is pretty bad at this point.

    However, the concept is good, and with some changes I think it could go far!

  38. Dr. Teeth says:

    Yeah, i appreciate the fact when John reviews any product, i just go directly and register

  39. I like sitehoppin very much 😆

    I has given me solid results.

  40. Miker W. says:

    Sitehoppin seems like its ok for traffic, but I still prefer entrecard. However, I have only just started using sitehoppin so maybe I should give it some more time. The problem I have with sitehoppin is that the quality of sites you surf is not that great. The sites are nowhere near the quality of the ones you stumble at stumbleupon. There are way too many junk sites.

  41. Miker W. says:

    Oh, and another thing I wanted to mention. Sitehoppin has a lot of the same members has entrecard. So basically there is a little redundancy in the traffic you get and the amount of unique visitors might not be all that much more if you do both entrecard and sitehoppin at the same time.

  42. pennyblogger says:

    will have to look into this further, checked it out this morning but it was too early to deal with the site, and i didn’t have enough time to figure it out. I could deffinitely use more traffic!

  43. kgaihc says:

    yes.. more people sign up.. this will definitely generate more traffic.. if you want to purchase some beer stocks, and you are a entrecarder, you may want to check out my offer.. buy beer stocks using my affiliate link and get some ECs.. thanks.. 🙂

  44. Sha says:

    Interesting. Maybe I’ll give it a shot later. I wonder how long it’ll last.

  45. Kent says:

    SiteHoppin takes some time to figure out, but it’s well worth it. Create your own list of tagged sites that you can hop, which is perfect for Entrecarders. Or, enjoy the slideshow feature when you just want to kick back and let the random sites roll. But you haven’t experienced SiteHoppin until you read Max’s blog and watch his awesome video blog entries. Very funny! Should you buy Max a bottle of Soju he’ll dedicate a video post to you. I’m obviously sold on SiteHoppin and currently own 5 Beer Stocks and am axiously awaiting the debut of the SiteHoppin toolbar. Nice review!
