My take on tea, technology, and our environment

I Work for Google, You Work for Google, Soon We’ll All Work for Google

Posted by telecommatt on August 6, 2007

Seems like Google is ready to pay you for more stuff. This time it involves doing some actual work though. With each new thing that Google does (For example, do a Google (!) search for Google+wireless+spectrum) I cheer them on a bit louder, but in the back of my mind I still have that fear that maybe Google is really the face of The Borg.

Google Will Pay You to Add Business Info to Maps

from Mashable! by Kristen Nicole
There’s a new way to earn a few extra bucks from Google
without inserting code into your site or hoping you get enough clicks
to warrant a payout this month. Sign on to be a business referral
representative.
Here’s the deal: Google is looking to provide even more useful
information when it comes to business information on Google Maps, like
hours of operation, types of payment accepted, photos of the location,
etc. It’s offering the job to you, making you an independent
contractor of Google. And you’ll get paid! Each approved and
verified approval can earn you up to $10. Verification happens when a
business referral is approved by Google (that will get you $2) or by
the business itself ($8 for this one). You will, however, still have to
earn enough to get that sweet payout. Rack up at least $25 in referrals
in one month, and Google will send a check.
Between the business referral system and Google Maps street views, I think we’ll all be working for Google one day.
