Do you want to make easy money at home on your own schedule?

Consider becoming a Web Search Evaluator. These positions are also known as Search Engine Evaluator (SEE) or Social Media Evaluator (SME).

SME rates social media ads and other content for quality and relevancy while SEE’s evaluates search engine results for the same thing. This is one-way search engines and social media platforms ensure accurate results.

This is in my top 20 list of stay at home mom jobs because it does not require getting on the phone, you make your own schedule, and it does not require any training.  There are many pros to this job, and because of that, there may be lows in available work. If you are interested in this position, make sure you don’t make this your sole source of income because most of these jobs are temporary contracts.

The application process for these positions can be lengthy, but if you can get past that step, this will be a nice way to make money on the side.

How Do I Get Started as a Web Search Evaluator?

Apply to one of the recommended companies below. This position does not require any previous experience but you will be expected to have a secure high-speed internet connection, active on social media and able to navigate the web.

How Much Can I Make?

$12.50 – $14 per hour, this varies by company see the top two reputable companies that pay well below:  


Lionbridge services clients worldwide helping them translate content, provide quality assurance measures, testing, and more. This company received a 3.1/5 star rating on with a pay range of $12.50 – $14 per hour. In the SEE role, you work a minimum of 10 hours and a maximum of 20 hours per week.

This is a good job for moms because you can take breaks, work late nights, or do it whenever it fits your schedule. You can do all 20 hours in 3 days (no more than 8 hours a day). The work comes on a first come, first serve basis and sometimes not available. 


Leapforce At Home independent agents recently bought by Appen conducts in-depth internet-based research and provide information evaluation for leading companies from around the globe. This company received a 3.7/5 star rating on with a pay of $13.78 per hour.

Most of the reviews were good noting the flexibility and ability to work from home. One of the cons of this job is actual time worked is not billable; you can only invoice for the time they estimate the work should take. Most people wish this job offered benefits and more hours, but overall this is a job that would work well for moms. Payments are made monthly.

    Hi Max, I am active evaluator with Leapforce ( now known as Appen connect).

    Just a small update, if you are an American, you can’t work with Appen or Lionbridge as search engine evaluator no more. There is a sister company created by Leapforce called Raterlabs, where Americans are hired as part-time employees with benefits. They can work 15 -26 hours per week.

    Raterlabs was created by Leapforce and most of the Americans from Leapforce moved to Raterlabs. ( it was hard for us). After the acquisition of Leapforce by Appen in December 2017, Leapforce is now known as Appen Connect while the original Appen is called as Appen Global.

    Raterlabs too, is a part of Appen now.

    Just wanted to let you know.
