I found it the other day while searching job leads (this is how I end up finding a lot of things I decide to review), and it looked like fun, so I signed up to try it out.

Here are some details on how it works:

Amazon MTurk HITS Worth DoingAmazon MTurk (if you’re not already aware) is a short task site.

I often direct people who are looking for data entry to this site because work for it sometimes pops up here. Amazon MTurk will pay you with either a direct deposit to your bank account (you have to have at least $1 to get that transferred over) or in Amazon money to add to your gift balance.

A Review of Clickworker

Short Task Sites for Extra CashDo you like earning extra cash for doing easy things? I definitely do — I started using mTurk a few years ago and still log on to this day on occasion just to get some Amazon money built up because the work is, for the most part, so easy. A lot of it doesn’t pay well, but you’ll occasionally come across a few gems that do in there. It’s certainly worth signing up to see what’s available from time to time to earn a little extra.

There are a lot of other short task sites out there in addition to mTurk, but I’ve never really reviewed too many others so I decided to put together…

Amazon mTurk – Get Paid for Doing Small Tasks

May 26, 2011 26 comments by Anna

Amazon mTurk (Amazon Mechanical Turk) is a site where you can sign up as a worker and earn money for doing short little odd jobs. The things offered there vary greatly — you might be doing data entry, search engine evaluation, and even writing work. I’ve personally done all three of those things through Amazon and then some. The way it works is pretty simple: People who need small tasks done requiring human and not computer intelligence can post these jobs up on the job board at mTurk. As a worker, you can sort through these jobs, select the ones you want to do, and get started. Some of the work is fun, while some of it is rather tedious and…
