7 Quick tips to make more money with Google Opinion rewards?
1. Open the app every single day
It seems that people who open the app every single day are receiving more number of surveys than people who opens once in a week. So, just open the app every single day and increase the chances of getting more surveys.
2. Keep your GPS on while visiting any place
When Google finds that you are in a shopping mall, it may send you a survey asking for feedback about the mall. Like for example, some users point that when they were in Target Store they received survey question like “Did you just go to Target?”.
Next time you visit Spencer, Forum, BigBazaar, Phoenix, Elante or any other top malls or stores, just keep your location On.
3. Share Location History
Sharing Location history increases the chance of getting more surveys. Google opinion rewards uses your location to ask you about places you have visited. Thereby helping you earn more rewards. To enable Google location history sharing follow the steps below,
- Just swipe from left to right to bring out the menu.
- Tap on settings.
- Tap on Google Location History.
- Enable the toggle switch on top and near the device.
4. Travel a lot
If you travel a lot, you are likely to receive more surveys. Surveys may be focused on getting feedback on your travel, like where you went, how was the experience and so on.
5. Be honest
While taking surveys, just be honest. If your answers are inconsistent, the chances of getting new surveys will be reduced and you won’t be able to fully complete any survey. Some people fake their income and age. Don’t do that. Even a simple algorithm can spot lies and blacklist.
Sometimes people have received a survey asking whether they were in a particular location that do not actually exist. Out of greed, when tapped on Yes, the algorithm found them to lying and sent a gentle reminder to be honest.
6. Pay attention while taking survey
While answering the survey, you may receive a dummy question in the middle of the questions, to check whether you are still paying attention. The question will be like, please select 5 stars below. And if you you answer it wrong, that will signal that you are not taking surveys seriously.
Some users have reported that they are not receiving any surveys after they made a wrong answer for attention testing question. They even went back and corrected the answer, but still that did not help them. So, just pay full attention while answering.
7. Female respondents receive more survey
Sorry, guys. It seems Google Surveys team needs more input from Female respondents. After I went through a treasure of comments over the web, It seems that female respondents are earning more. It doesn’t have anything to do with gender based preferential treatment or anything. It is just that they need more input from a particular gender.
So, if you are a female, you are in luck. If you are a male, then just skip this tip. Patience is a virtue I guess.
