1. Search best hit to work: It is better to use search option for hits instead of going through all the pages and wasting your valuable time. Before you click GO button, make sure that sort by is set at “Reward Amount(most first)” and search check only for which you are qualified. This will make sure that you are only looking into hits which you can complete, also which will pay you more. I always use few terms to search hits, which I found that are most common for hits. You can search for following terms:
- Survey – Searches all hits which need you to complete a survey
- Decision – Hits which requires you make some decisions
- Game – Hits which requires you to test game
- Task – Hits which requires you to complete some simple tasks
- Test – Any kind of testing hits
- Search - Hits which requires you to do google, yahoo or bingo search
You can see that after I clicked go button, I got 54 hits on which I can work at the moment. I can decide on hit, I should work now rather than wasting my time by scrolling through all the pages containing 755 hits.
You can also try MturkList. This site shows all hits which are shared by users with rating and time taken to complete the same. It is very helpful to work on a good hit. You can choose hit which is rated higher and require very less time to complete.
