Amazon Mechanical Turk Income – Week 1

A good first week of trying to see what the earning potential is for Amazon Mechanical Turk. My goal this week was to spend a minimum of 1 hour each day and work as many HITs as I could during that time. The week ended with a total time of 5 hours and 21 minutes spent on the mTurk website and I submitted 166 HITs. I was hoping I could get to 500 total approved HITs by the end of the week but fell short by 57.

Plan for Week 2

This week I will start experimenting with browser scripts. These are supposed to make it easier to find and accept higher paying HITs before they are accepted by other workers, helping to increase the hourly rate of earnings. I will also continue to spend 1 hour a day at a minimum. Should also reach over 500 approved HITs within a few days which will give me access to more options from requesters with higher worker qualifications.
