www.mturk.com is an interesting new online job made by amazon.  Its a contracting job and the amount u get paid is on how fast you can click.  The jobs are called HITs short for human intelligence tasks, each one of these " hits" gives you 3 cents.  I can do about 5-6 a minute so i get about 8-9 bucks an hour ( not bad considering you can work however much you want and whenever)
now that pays more then my real job at a grocery store for 6.75 an hour =D

Yeah, I saw this on some forums a few days ago. Here's a set of forums dedicated to this:

http://www.turking.com/

I haven't had a chance to turk much, but I will definitely be checking it out - there's some programming books I want, and my mom likes to read too. A LOT. :)

Which scripts you use? I need to make some money off this, and I've only made like 5 bucks total. I'd love to be making $20-$30 an hour!

-Dawn- yes u do get paid hehe amazon isnt currupt...yet ( =. jst a few accounts have problems tranferin to a bank account like mine but u jst have to talk to customer sopport and they fix it all up.  Iv made only 35$ to date.

What scripts do i use?: Open up mozila (its important ur in mozzila when u do this) go to www.turking.com make an account go into downloads turking help and then firefox extention.  Install the extention it will warn u that it might be a virus... dont worry its not. then once ur done u will be prompted to restart firefox. Do this and then go back to turking.com sign in go to downloads turking help then click on turkop.  It should come up with a long script click tools install user script... hapying turking!

and correction im only making 8 bucks an hour with scripts considering theres no more picture hits and they gayed up the artist hits to make them take longer... but i should be making a good 20 dollars an hour once my qualification for podcast clears up...

PS: if ur fluent in french and english u can make an OK salary translating at mturk.com its only 1$ every 500 charecters but u can make around 20$ an hour doing that...

I've made 60 bucks with this.  However, with the holidays, it's next to impossible to turk ANYTHING on mturk.com.  No HITs are available anymore.

4 bucks?  Try 4 cents.  That's what it's telling me at least.

no those are the unqualified podcastes.  If you take the qualification test, and pass, there are hits that take about 10 minutes to transcribe and give you from 3-6 dollars. Once whisperwords store opens up youll see more of those.
