Online Paid Website Testing Jobs | Usability testing jobs

Among various online income opportunities, website usability testing jobs stand prominent because doing these jobs is both fun and rewarding. A normal online or offline job usually requires you to accomplish a specific task. For instance, in a data entry job, you might be asked to type content from images to Microsoft Word documents. This job will not be completed unless you type each word from the image into the Word document. Unlike such traditional jobs, testing jobs are less tedious as there are no specific goals to achieve. You have much more freedom and there are no tiring constraints.

Needless to say, these jobs demand no special skills or any experience. To qualify for these jobs, you just need the following:
1. A computer
2. An internet connection
3. Little creativity can be a bonus
4. Some curiosity will surely help
5. Expressing your true opinion, is must

Some companies require testers to give live feedback to an analyst. Testers connect to a server using some software; they then start testing a website and give their opinion using a microphone and webcam. Tester’s role is of a commentator and the analyst will be the listener. The analyst then creates a report, which is based on all the information that he gathers from different testers. Website owners then use this report to make the necessary improvements in their websites. Your role in this process ends after you finish giving your opinion to the analyst, though. You do not take any part in creation of the report.

Online website testing jobs may require you to analyze one or more of the following elements:
1. Design and overall website look
2. Usability test; your goal is to browse through different pages in the website and check all the main features. You will then comment on how easy it is to find the information, which the user is looking for. You will also test how good the navigation links are.
3. Content quality is one of the main ingredients for a successful website. In some testing jobs, you will be required to check the quality of content in different pages. If the website is about “Cooking Tips”, then how good is the content? Are the recipes worth trying? How well is the content written? Is that content interesting or is it boring?

Some companies do not require live feedback. They will send the website URL and other details to your email address. You will test the website for a specific time-period. You will write the feedback in a file, which you will then send by email to the company.

Website testing job usually pays well. There are no fixed rates, though. The money you can earn depends on the amount of work you are given and the company for whom you are working. Additionally, you can make more money if you become a trustworthy tester. If you complete the first few jobs with honesty and provide some vital information, your rank as a tester will increase. The more rank you have, the more money you can make.


Can you do website testing as a full-time job?

Consider this opportunity more of a part-time job. Website testing jobs are a real deal but you cannot depend on them for making a full-time income.

    Thank you so much for this! I joined almost all the websites you listed except for a couple (eLance and oDesk seem to be too specific with their testing requirements, and Clicktale and Opinion Lab do not seem to have any user testing jobs). Nevertheless, thanks for the article! :)

      I have been using usertesting.com for about a year now, and its super easy. They have both PC & mobile tests available, the PC testing pays $10 & up per completed test, and the mobile testing pays $15. You complete a test, they review it, 7 days later your paid via paypal. If you opt to use the mobile testing, they actually send you a webcamof theirs to use for the testing. After so many completed mobile tests, you get to keep the webcam. I haven’t tried any of the others, as I didn’t know that there were so many. I’ve listed my webpage if your interested in earning more.

        Hi Neva, Can you please tell me more about what your doing, it sounds like something I would like to do. Also how much money can you make from doing this, and can you still do this if you live in a small . Thank you, very much.

    • Neva

      Oh, I forgot to mention that any legitimate user testing site, or any other site that says you can make money with their company does not charge you anything to earn money with them, so no there is no fee attached. If their asking for money to make money then its a scam indeed.
