SEARCH ENGINE EVALUATOR – WHAT IS IT?

 

Search Engine Evaluators are people who evaluate various websites in Google (or Bing), and rate and rank them according to various Google Guidelines, to make sure that the most helpful results are shown in the top page of Google.

There are complex algorithms that Google uses to make sure that only the best results are shown at the top. But there is only so much that algorithms can do. That’s where Google Search Engine Evaluators comes in to play. Yes, they do use humans to help them rate and evaluate websites.  And you my friend, could be one of those evaluators.

 

WHERE TO WORK AS A SEARCH ENGINE EVALUATOR

There are many companies that hires search engine evaluators.  But I am going to discuss only about one company here since I currently work with them as a search engine evaluator.

You can be a search engine evaluator by signing up below

          Leapforceathome.com

I have applied for and tried to work for other companies, but nothing beats Leapforce. The response and the support that you get from here is awesome. You feel like you are cared for and supported by them.

HOURLY RATE FOR SEARCH ENGINE EVALUATOR 

Leapforce pays a decent amount per hour, but the rate differs from country to country. Here are the current hourly rate for different locations around the world.

US    –     $13.5

UK and rest of Europe –  $14

India and others  –  $7

Now that, my friend is  a lot of money if you live in India and other third world countries.  Heck, I can make more money by just sitting in my room and working less than 100 hours than people who work in MNCs as IT or software professionals here in India.

If you work for just 160 hours a month, one can make $1120 ( Rs 74450) if you are from India and other third world countries.  And that is an awesome income in countries like India where the per capita income is less than $1500 a year.

If you are an American that translates to ( 13.5 * 160 hours) $2160 a month which is more than the minimum wage. Moreover, American workers are eligible to be Preferred Agents (PA) of Leapforce which pays $16 an hour. They are also eligible for bonuses when there are too much of workload and the client needs the work finished off.

Update : Americans are no longer hired as search engine evaluator by Leapforce. Read the annoucement here . They can still work as social media evaluator with Leapforce though.

CONS OF WORKING AS  A SEARCH ENGINE EVALUATOR

 

  • You are not the employee of Leapforce. You won’t be getting employee benefits as you would in a 9 to 5 job.
  • The work load varies. Sometimes there is a lot of works while at other times work may be hard to trickle by. Raters from US and other European countries is not affected much by it though.
  • This is a contractual position where your contract would be renewed every six months based on your performance.

 

MY EXPERIENCE SO FAR

 

Leapforce (review) has been a lifesaver for me. I used to work in Teleperformance, Gurgaon and had left that company to join ELI Research, Cyber City Gurgaon,  as Business Development Executive. Things felt through, it didn’t happen as I had wanted it to be. Shit happens right?

It was at that time of frustration and anger that I found out about Leapforce as I was looking for work at home opportunities. And trust me, I am more than thankful to Leapforce.  The support from admins and the community atmosphere there is awesome and professional.

 

IS IT LEGIT

Absolutely ! Among all the work at home opportunities that bloggers with millions of views touts and tries to sell to you, this opportunity to work as an evaluator, is not only legit but it is also absolutely free.

There are no startup costs here, no investment required. All you need is a laptop or a desktop, a smartphone ( Android or iOS, Windows phones are not supported), and an internet connection.  Hell they don’t even asks for degree!

If you have a new year’s resolution to make 2018 a better year in terms of personal finance, quality time and freedom from 9 to 5, this my friend is your baby step.
