Microtask Sites

(You may want to bookmark this page as new information will be added occasionally.) 

You may have heard the term "microtask." These are small freelance jobs such as checking web pages for broken links, data entry, or proofreading. The microtasker will receive anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars for each task completed. 
Amazon's Mechanical Turk is probably the best known microtask site. To sign up, simply go to the Mechanical Turk worker page and sign in with your Amazon account.
A lesser known source to earn money doing microtasks is Clickworker. Clickworker has been around for a long time. In fact, I signed up with them years ago but hadn't done any tasks through them for a long time. Fortunately, your earnings never expire, and you can cash out at five euro via Paypal or ten euro via direct deposit.
Prize Rebel has a microtask area. Go to "earn" in the top toolbar and click "tasks." Select a task from the list.
Microtasks are a nice way to earn a little extra money on the side. They aren't exciting or high-paying, but they don't tend to be terribly demanding or stressful either.
