Something About Orkut

Many times I have seen the peoples asking for How orkut earns money ?

so here’s my post explaining the secret behind orkuts earnings

According to many posts on internet:

Orkut Buyukkokten(the creator of Orkut) gets $12 when every person registers to this website.
He also gets $10 when you add somebody as a friend.
He gets $8 when your friend’s friend adds you as a friend & gets $6 if anybody adds you as a friend in the resulting chain.
He gets $5 when you scrap somebody & $4 when somebody scraps you.
He also gets $200 for each photograph you upload on Orkut.
He gets $2.5 when you add your friend in the crush-list or in the hot-list.
He gets $2 when you become somebody’s fan.
He gets $1.5 when somebody else becomes your fan.
He even gets $1 every time you logout of Orkut.
He gets $0.5 every time you just change your profile-photograph.
He also gets $0.5 every time you read your friend’s scrap-book & $0.5 every time you view your friend’s friend-list.
Many Global Financial Consultants think this person might become the richest-person in the world by the end of 2009.
Finally, this is the best fact. This person has 13 assistants to monitor his scrapbook & 8 assistants to monitor his friends-list. He gets around 20,000 friend-requests a day & about 85,000 scraps a day.

Its common sense to analyze why some will get paid so much for so little things. Worst of all was the comments the post carried. People were in awe to see the post and started rolling their eyes. I cant believe all that crap. According to those calculations, by now Orkut should have been the world’s richest man alive, but he is not. Not even into the list of billionaires. And if I am not wrong, he is not even in millionaires.

Here are the approximate  earnings of Orkut based on Google Adsense Advertising, coz thats what will pay Orkut and nothing else. You can read about his actual earnings here. Orkut – Now makes money!

orkut users expected orkut.com to be add free and true social networking platform. But orkut went the usual Google way (start a service, make it a hit, put ads)

Approx. Daily traffic = 500,000
