Amazon Turk Now Lousy Site To Earn Money
Dear readers I can no longer recommend Amazon Mechanical Turk (Mturk), as such a viable place to earn money. Over the two years I have been active on Mturk I have noticed how the pay for online tasks has dropped dramatically. It used to be I could get $1 for a 15 to 20 minute task. Now almost none to be had.
Also those tasks offering 50 cents or less seem to take 20 to 30 mins or more. Who are they kidding? Cheap bastards! Moreover, many tasks require an eligibility test which quite often is not mentioned up front. There is no pay offered for taking these eligibility tests. Furthemore, many tasks now require workers to be specially invited. Take my advice: avoid Mturk.
