By now you''ve probably seen a good amount of HYIP sites on the net, all with their own set of earning potential promises, all with their own terms and rate of returns. The main thing you''re going to notice is that they all wind up looking the same, don''t they? But don''t be fooled by looks and imitations. Some of them are just fronts for scammers, while other ones are rock solid and out there really trying to make money for you. Luckily, there are sites out there devoted to helping you make an informed decision on all of these sites before you put your money at risk.
The first place you want to look for information regarding any HYIP programs are rating, or monitoring sites. The good monitoring sites with a lot of traffic will give you the best possible insight into how a program is performing, whether it''''''''''''''''s paying its members regularly, and how it rates compared to other HYIPs out there. They contain enough information for you to choose, and the more user feedback a site offers, the better it is for your purposes.
Look around the monitoring site and see which programs have the most votes, as well as the most positive votes. A site with a lot of votes, but on the negative side, should immediately be taken off your probable list. A site with only a few votes, but all of them positive, should have a red flag raised. It could be that it only has a few votes because the admin is actually the only one voting for it, or it could just mean that it''s too new to get any accurate measurement of how it''s performing.
Message boards devoted to HYIP discussion is also a good place to get more information about good and bad HYIPs. You can check the comments on each program, and whether people are being paid or not. You can also keep track of any changes to the program throughout the life of the HYIP. Probably the message boards are one of the fastest and most informative ways to keep track of the current HYIP tendencies. You can choose a program by reading what the other folks say, and you can switch programs once you get any suspicion.
When you wind up joining with an HYIP, whether it''s doing well or poor, it''s up to you to vote on the monitors or join in on forum discussions. A strong member base is always a good backbone to any HYIP, and will help you maximize your profits.
