What is MTurk?
I keep hearing about this place in the Hubpages forum. Some people have bad things to say about it. I still don't get it.. what is it? and how is it related to Hubpages?
MTurk is Amazon Mechanical Turk. Join, and then you have to take some qualification test, then proceed to pick jobs to do which pay one cent, and up per job.
HP decided to post hubs there to be evaluated by idiots.
Mechanical Turk is ok if you apply for the right jobs. Most jobs pay a pittance and are ridiculous, but some pay very well. I am a top tier writer for one company that pays and sets up their jobs through Turk. I get $11 a piece and they are very simple and straight forward pieces (albeit boring)
