About search evaluation

Search evaluation is one of the most sought-after and legitimate ways to make money at home while surfing the web. 

Search evaluators, also referred to as search engine evaluators, web search evaluators, Internet analysts, Internet assessors or search quality raters provide educated feedback and critical insights for search engine companies like Google and Bing. 

The core of the job is to rate the relevance of search results and their feedback is used to test improvements on the search engine's algorithms. No specific technical background is required to do the job.

If you want to become a search engine evaluator, I recommend that you first enroll in our free introductory course and then read these tips for applicants.
