Google Hiring Independents To Collect Business Info For Maps

The Google Local Business Referral Program is an initiative to gather contact, business hours and other information on businesses for listings in Google Maps – where Google is using independent contractors to gather their information. Basically they are paying $10 a confirmed listing.

The information gathering job requires people to sign up for it through their Google accounts and to have access to a digital camera to take a photograph of the business. At $10 an entry organized people could be making $30 plus dollars an hour – great salary for people in lower cost of living communities.
