Mechanical Turk Evaluating Hubs

    If you know how to use the new hub hopper, you can earn up to 15 cents per hub on Mechanical Turk.  There is a qualifications test that you take, which seems like you are evaluated on the first 15 hubs.  The new hub hopper comes up and is the tool to evaluate hubs.

    Perhaps if they paid more than 15c more time would be spent reading every word on each hub and the scores would reflect the extra attention. Recent changes to scoring are .... puzzling.

        Requester:      HubPages     Reward:      $0.15

        HP also had another set for $.05

      Well, you can use the hub hopper here and earn nothing, or use the hub hopper on MT and earn something.

        Have you signed up with MTurk?

    WF:  Signed up over 4 years ago, but stopped doing anything on there.  Signed up for HP yesterday and did some work while I was bored.

      Why do some HP hits pay 5¢ and some 15¢?

    They had 2 listings.  One was typical hubs for 15 cents.  The one for 5 cents was same thing really but looking for adult content.  There is now way to find out why one group pays more than the other.

      So, they pay you less to look at porn?  (I guess that has its own rewards.) big_smile

        Actually the nickel hubs are same as 15 cent hubs with exception of possible adult content.

    I have been reading some reviews on this service from Amazon, it actually seems to have some promise. I know for a fact I would stay away from penny jobs. You could really spend some time there and not make a whole lot if you are not mindful of what the hourly wage is?

    This was why I quit Bubblews after a few payouts, but Turk could still be a good change of pace time filler and you might make a little bit monthly to make it worth it.

    I want to spend most of mental energy building my own brand, but I like reading articles and writing small reviews, so to get paid a little for killing time might be a worth a look.

    I don't know why they don't integrate this into the hub hopper here on hubpages and let you add to your ad program earnings with it.

    I can't see anyone being better at evaluating hubs than hubbers themselves.

    Personally I'm not going to bother going to register at mechanical turk and specifically going there for such as small amount of money, but I often come to hubpages to browse and I'm sure some of the time when I don't see anything interesting I would happily hop a handful of hubs for a small reward. Also you might get people hopping to get themselves up to the payment threshold in a given month.

    I reckon doing this would reduce their costs, increase hubber engegement (perhaps getting people coming back here more often and then even deciding to work on their hubs while they are here) and also increase hubber satisfaction as they see their earnings go up.

      I agree totally!

    Intriguing idea, but let me ask this:  when you are hopping hubs, you're essentially just doing a review, right? 

    Is your review read on here?  Could this activity be viewed as a networking tool for HP?  In other words, does your review show up anywhere, or is it completely anonymous?  If it's anonymous and it's literally just 15 cents a hub for reviewing, no thanks.

    I signed up for MTurk a while back, but was then told that my amazon account was suspended because they couldn't verify me. Pretty sure this happens to everyone just so they get a little bit more info from you. Havent bothered with it since, might as well give it another go.

    Do payments from MTurk go into a bank account, PayPal account, or is it strictly limited to your Amazon account (meaning you can only use earnings to purchase stuff from amazon)?
