Get Paid To Search on Google

If you had turned on the Qmee extension while searching on Google, it will pay for your searches provided if it is related to the sponsor.

(I got few cents for searching keywords related to popular tourist destinations and restaurants). Qmee also has a surveys section where you can earn between $0.50 to $5 per survey.
Clickworker is a crowdsourcing platform where the users are paid to complete a variety of micro-tasks. Here, you will get paid to search a particular keyword on the web, visit the search results and complete the actions mentioned in the job instructions.

HiveOffers is a recently launched site which looks very similar to Microworkers. It pays you to install mobile apps, take surveys, signup on websites and more.

Majority of the Figure Eight tasks involve searching keywords on Google. To make money from Figure Eight tasks, the two best websites to use are Neobux and Clixsense.
Even though Figure Eight tasks are also available on other Get Paid To sites like Swagbucks, they offer less pay per task when compared with Neobux and Clixsense.
Most of the tasks in Ayuwage pay you to visit a website, stay on that page for few seconds and click an advertisement.

13. Search Engine Evaluator
Are you willing to get paid more for searching the web? Then, you can become a search engine evaluator. There are a bunch of companies like Appen, Lionbridge, Leapforce, RaterLabs which regularly hire individuals to work from home as a search engine evaluator. Occasionally, Google also hires skilled and talented people to improve their search engine.
As a search engine evaluator, you will be required to evaluate the relevance of search results for the given query.
And, the pay varies based on the company. You will get somewhere between $10 to $15 per hour to work as a search engine evaluator.
Can You Make $100 Per Month To Search The Web?
Well, it depends on the number of sites you have registered and your active participation as well. Definitely, you cannot make $100 per month, if you are logging on to the site less frequently, say once a week.
If you want to make more money, then you need to spend a few minutes with this kind of sites daily. The best option is to make a list of all such sites with approximate earnings per day. And, try to do the high paying sites first so that you won’t miss the money.
Another option to increase your earning is to set the search bar of the high paying site (like Swagbucks) as your default search engine.
