What is a Google Rater?
I was passing thru and the word GOOGLE caught my eye . Of course I've heard of Google, but what is a Google Rater?
Can anyone share in a few brief words what that is? Are you working for Google?
To Answer Your Question
There are a few names for this position. The companies hiring for this are Lionbridge, Leapforce and Butler Hill. I am not sure if Workforce Logic still hires for this or not. Lionbridge titles this position as an internet assessor and Leapforce titles it as Search Engine Evaluator. You do not apply with Google. These companies contract with Google and hire independent contractors. I work for Lionbridge. I enjoy the pay, but the task availability is not always steady and the work can get boring sometimes. Basically what it entails is assessing the utility of search engine results. In order to get started, you must apply and if they have openings in your area and you qualify, they will invite you to take a test. The test is long and you must study carefully. The pay is great(I cannot disclose due to confidentiality agreement), but it is hourly. It is a great way to earn a part-time income.
