What Is A Search Engine Evaluator
Have you ever search the internet for something and a subject that is completely unrelated to what you are searching is displayed? I always find that a bit frustrating. If I am searching for wood floors I don’t want to see information about carpeting.
Searches that we perform in search engines aren’t always right with displaying relevant information. Where information gets placed within internet searches, is based on algorithms. That means that robots are scanning through the information and deciding what the subject is actually about. Robots aren’t as good at figuring out what we as humans are looking for.
A Search Engine Evaluator searches the internet to find if images, videos or articles are actually relevant to where they are being found on the internet.
This job includes review, evaluation and feedback of online images or videos based on a set of guidelines, provides ratings on advertisements in regard to their relevancy to the search terms, reviewing websites and social media. Sounds pretty easy for anyone who likes searching around the internet.
The goal of a Search Engine Evaluator is to contribute towards making internet search more exciting, relevant and interesting for all end users. You would play a part in improving the quality of one of the largest search engines in the world. On top of that, think of all the new information that you could learn along the way.

You will need to give them your full attention to pass the tests. If you didn’t already know, working from home positions are very competitive, and if you don’t want to put in the time and the work, there is someone else who will, so make sure that you plan on being committed. This is a real job.
There is no payment for the testing time.
There is no sign up fee, no membership fee and no interviews. You just must pass the online assessment to be eligible for work. Any company that is requiring any upfront fee from you wouldn’t be considered a legitimate company, so don’t pay any money.
