    Hi Guys,
    Anyone have a lot of experience with mturk? I have some hits i put up that have people searching for certain keywords. The job literally takes 20 seconds and i'm paying 7 cents per click which is pretty high i think. For some reason, i can't get anyone to complete the hits. Any suggestions? I've even tried playing with the headline to encourage people to do the hit.

    Experiment with different categories. Also try adding the following words to the title:

    QUICK
    EASY
    FAST

    Hi,

    Yes I have experience in MTurk. If your HIT has the default required qualifications on it (those being probably the masters qualification) Then you should deleting those and republishing the HITs without those qualifications. But, do put some qualifications on it (such as >5000 approved HITs, and +95% approval rating). This way you also avoid the extra 20%-10% which MTurk charges for using the masters qualification.
