About three months ago I posted about Google looking for "quality raters" to evalaute advertising. These could be some of the people using the "reviewers hub" that Danny and Henk are talking about in their posts. According to a couple of job engines, some of these "temporary" and "off-site" positions to evaluate both "search quality" and advertising and are still available.

This is a temporary assignment at Google through ABE Services. ABE/Kelly Services are recruiting part-time remote workers to help with search quality evaluation on a project basis for Google, Inc., the search engine company based in Mountain View, California. Candidates must be web-savvy and analytical, have excellent web research skills and a broad range of interests. Specific areas of expertise are highly desirable.
