Google Pays Users For Research & Testing

Posted by @ 8:46 pm

Google is seeking participants to test their new services and products.

Their User Experience Research Program recruits relevant Google users to test new developments across their service range. Interested participants are required to sign up and answer a simple online survey.

Based on your survey responses, Google will approach you when a suitable test case or research project arises. So if you love Google, or just want to get involved in their development process, then this is a great chance.

What’s even better is that you get paid for the research and testing you complete. According to the FAQ, they pay around US$75 per hour for your efforts. That said, signing up doesn’t guarantee you’ll be asked to participate.

The research options come in 4 basic formats:
# Usability Study at a Google Office
# Remote usability study – via your computer
# Field Study – they come to you
# Online survey

Well I have just signed up, and fortunately there are attachment of electrodes required according to the FAQ section, so I’ll share any further information as it comes to hand. If you’re keen to get involved, sign up here.
