Today has been a total bust. Just gonna consider this a day off and hope that tomorrow is better.
I think its a holiday for me tode....Todes projectd till now 0.04$
Just now some Joe Elliott's hits came to find out the bib number..
Well I found a $1 survey to do anyway. So my total for the day is... $1.
How long you turking and also what is the accepted total hits and approval % rate?
edit: oopps.. Forget to welcome you...
Welcome subhanayagam to this great forum and enjoy your stay.
Yeah, I know we have to wait for good hits.
Well I had a week off to come back to the UK from France and have started up Turking again. Its been quite a good couple of days since I started again because I've managed to unlock an article writing qualification from 'pfister week' who were paying $12 for three articles of 400 words+.
So here are the stats at the moment for the past four days:
HITs completed: 21
Amount earned: $71.75
Pending Amount: $160.42
Not bad for 4 days I think. I'm pretty optimistic about the HITS being approved as I've never had any article HIT rejected, in fact I've only ever had 4 HITS rejected and they have been for the silly 1 cent HITs that i did the first day on Mturk, (sucks balls!)
So I am really pleased about the qualification coming through. I believe that it may be due to me completing many smaller-paying HITs that has unlocked it.
Article writing is really my thing. I find that I cannot focus on the smaller 1 cent HITs as they fuck with my mind somewhat for what they are asking me to do. I often struggle at those for some reason, maybe they seem too simple and I overcomplicate things, but anyway...
I wrote a total of 54 articles, 400 words each, so that is 21,600 words and by now my eyes have just about had enough. I think I managed to complete the majority of those HITs myself though there were many more I didn't get the chance to nab before they disappeared.
So as for my initial goal of $500 towards a new DSLR, I've surpassed that (with pending), so I can now look forward to some accessories to go with my new camera (whoop-de-doo!)
So all in all, my stats overall are as follows:
Days spend on mTurk: 24
Total Approved: 255
Approval Rate: 98.5%
Approved HITS: $417.00
Today's projected earnings: $48.00
Pending HITS: $160.42
I was genuinely sceptical about the whole mTurk thing, but wow.. i never thought it would pay off like this. If I added up the complete total, including a couple of jobs I did privately for people who liked my work, the grand total of my first 24 days comes to $825.
Bring on my new camera!
Awesome work Paul...Keepp turking
Yeah, I recently got approved by pfister week as well. The only problem I have is that it doesn't give you enough time. Maybe I'm just slow or maybe it just takes me more time to reasearch the topic that I'm writing about, but 2 hours isn't enough time to write three 400 word articles (at least not for me). This was frustrating to me because by the time my 2 hours were almost up I had only done 2 of the 3 articles. So I just asked if I could have more time in the third article. I still have the hit pending and it's been two days. How long did it take for them to approve your hits?
Made a couple dollars so far, not much up worth doing though. I'd churn out some of the porn hits but don't really want to do more of those until the last batch I did has been approved.
Think I'll go get an early lunch then come back and see if there's any action.
It happened to me as well when i first saw all of the HITs available, I accepted four HITs at once and i soon realised that they only gave 2 hours and two of those first four I accepted timed-out. Though it took an average of 45 minutes for me to do the HITs I noticed.
The HITs I completed on Thursday have all been approved, and a few from Friday also. Being in the UK and the majority of requesters being from the US I usually wake up to find some have been accepted, and the HITs I did over the weekend are yet to be accepted, so I am expecting the majority of the HITs done over the weekend to be accepted this evening some time, but none of my HITs have been rejected so far, so I'm optimistic with another $160 worth of HITs for pfister week still pending. SO fingers crossed!
Today's Projected Earnings $7.60
minumum wage today folks!
$10.30 here. Not much worth doing today. Chipped away on very, very small batches of penny hits, plus 4 or 5 surveys. Would like to at least hit $15 before quitting for the night.
Best day so far $8 you guys sound like you do nothing else lol
Haha no that is certainly not the case for me. I work at my regular job 45 hours a week. On my days off I'll usually put in a total of 5 or 6 hours on turk if it's a good day. On a day like today, I've done maybe 2 hours when you add up all the little 5-15 minute sessions.
Work days I'll put in anywhere from 2-4 hours before/after work depending on what kind of hits are up.
$24 for today and I can see this dwindling as the week goes on.
Impressed that you were able to pull $24 out of today.
Hope you're wrong about the rest of the week. Tuesday was my best day last week.
Just waiting to hit that magical 1k. Taking forever lol, maybe after 1000 I'll work a little harder.
I got in 592 RER hits today, with two other survey hits...
Today's Projected Earnings $25.08
Yay. Best day I've had yet!
