I guess some of you have known about micro tasks sites or micro jobs. examples of which are microworker.com, shorttask.com, jobboy.com and more. Have any of you had any experience with these? Is it worth the time?

I use Microworkers and Mturk regularly. I think that they are worth your time if you spend a lot of time online. It's a good way to earn some extra cash just using your computer. I've been with Microworkers since April of this year, and I am cashing out weekly now. All it takes is a bit of effort and time.

It is god to hear that you are cashing out weekly. I am still new to this. And I hope I can make some supplementary income with this.

I love mturk, it is a genuine site from Amazon which is paying from quite some time. Yes micro task sites worth your time. If you are new to money making on internet, it is a very good platform to start making decent money. However, few consider it to be waste of time since the rewards per task are really low. however, countries like India and other economically going countries where 100 dollars a month sounds decent, it is worth the time. I am not sure about shorttask.com or jobboy, may be new sites. Check for reviews before start working on new sites.

I have recently joined microworkers and think it is pretty good. The task are simple and you can earn a lot by them. I think you can make $5 in an hour with these sites.

I think that if you're the kind of person who has maybe an hour or two spare each and every day then these types of things might be worth it for you. I don't think that you could ever make a living out of things like that because at the end of the day there are never enough tasks on there for it to be worthwhile as you obviously have to wait a little to make the minimum payout as well as doing the tasks themselves. You should try and have a look around and see what else there is that you could have a go at, as there are many more things which would make you more money than these websites.

I also discovered these websites just recently ( joined MicroWorkers this week ) so I cannot really tell whether they pay and such and only 2 out of the 6 jobs I completed the first/second day have been accepted yet. But if it does pay I will certainly use the website a lot I can tell. The most jobs are about 30 seconds to 5 minutes to complete and earn you around $0.10-$1.00 which is great!

Hi jange52, I am working in microworkers. I like this site. I didn't received a payout so far. I will reach it shortly. The best idea to make money from microworkers is that blog postings. I have done blog posting for money. But the problem is the blogs should not be free hosted like xxx.blogspot.com or xxx.wordpress .com . If you are having a custom hosted blog, can make money easily.I think these 'micro task' sites are good.
