    Hey guys, I thought I would post some things that I have done with MicroWorkers and Short Task in the past for those that haven't thought of the potential of these sites. I'm sure that the first thing that most think of when they see these sites is to use them to fill out C.P.A. or click on their Adsense, but doing so won't last very long, as you will probably get banned from your network.

    The main difference between MicroWorkers and Short Task is that you have to have at least thirty jobs for Microworkers, where as for Short Task you can post one and up. So if I wanted to get someone to leave a comment on my blog or something for Microworkers I would have to get a minimum of thirty to do it, while for Short Task I could just get one person to do so. Anyways, I thought I would post some things that you can get done with these types of sites.

    Some of these will have to do with being lazy, but when you can get something done for ten cents, hey why not?

    Google Plus.
    You can get people to click on your "Plus" button.

    Facebook Likes
    Get them to "Like" something.

    Comment on your blog,
    You can have people comment and you can reply, etc.

    Web 2.0s.
    Have them create, and post to Web 2.0s. If you don't have the software to do so you can put out a job to create the Web 2.0s and provide for them the article that you want posted. Be sure to include that you want them to provide all log-in info. as well as password. I also get them to create a email account to sign up with, so I need that info. as well.

    Create account and post article to article directory.
    Again make sure that they provide account info., you just provide them with article.

    Blog roll links.
    Last year I paid forty cents each for 30 PR2 blog roll links.You just tell them to go to "Google PageRank Checker" to make sure that they qualify and then send you the link afterwards. I will include that they have to leave it there for at least a year, and try to make it sound as though they would get in big trouble from MicroWorkers staff.

    Contextual Links.
    This is another good way to get links. You tell them what PR blog you want, to write a fifty word post, and include your anchor text linking to your site.

    Twitter/Facebook account creation.
    Again make sure that they provide you with log-in details.

    Twitter/Facebook followers/friends.
    And you can get them to tweet your message etc, as well.

    Forum profiles.
    Get them to create email, sign-up, and leave a few posts with your signature.

    Yahoo Answers.
    Have them ask questions or answer one of yours.

    YouTube
    Get them to post comments, subscribe, rate, etc.

    Bookmarks
    Get them to bookmark something.

    Anyways, it's late, and that is all that I can think of off the top of my head right now. Good luck, and use your imagination.

    Usually a few cents per worker, you hire dozens of them for cents.

    Better to get them to do things you can't automate :).

    You pay whatever you wish. On Short Task I have seen tasks for .02. MicroWorkers has recently set some minimums though, but there are a ton of sites like theses that you can use.

    Microworkers now has a min of $.30. Are there any other sites that you can recommended for small tasks like voting and reviews?

    Thanks
