It is true that the advertising sector wants to know your wants and desires, but I think they're more willing to pay big businesses like Google and Facebook for that information. I don't know anyone who has made a dollar from doing online surveys. Unless you find convincing evidence, I wouldn't recommend trying it out as even if there are real surveying companies, I'm sure many of them are scams.
Initially I wasn't impressed with it, but over time a few of these paid online survey panels have come through for me. It's not enough to live off of -- just supplementary income. Yes, there are plenty of scams, but there are a few genuine ones.
Global Test Market, Spidermetrix, and Focusline are few genuine ones. There are others I've joined but they just didn't ever send me any surveys. Ones like American Consumer Opinion, and SurveySavvy. It might differ with other people.
Too many that I have tried are all about getting you to accept an offer. It seems if you can find one company that's reputable and stick with it your time is better spent; the pay is usually very low per survey but adds up over time.
