Thread: Content Building with Amazon Mechanical Turk

  1. Content Building with Amazon Mechanical Turk

    Amazon Mechanical Turk is a very odd system for working with writing subcontractors.

    It doesn't allow the freedom of communication that connecting with writers on web forums does. It doesn't have the full suite of process management features that RentACoder does.

    What is does offer is speed. If you put an article request on Amazon Mechanical Turk, you can get a completed article back in an hour.

    If you're requirements aren't very specific and your time frames are short, this might be something you would like to try.

    Looks cool!
    Have you tried it yet Will?

    I had the chance to try AMT today and the article I received was not of very good quality ( yet another wannabe indian writer ).

    I may try again sometime next week to see if the quality is any better.

    Can you share a bit more?
    I mean like how much you've paid, turnround time, etc...

  5. I've done it several times. I paid $9 to $15 for articles. I received each article in about an hour. None of the articles were great, but they were all usable.

  6. Nice.. although I guess a bit expensive judging by quality

    What length were the articles?

  8. I didn't specify that for most of my tests, but the articles all came back with a decent length (300-500 words).

    I wouldn't consider that decent.

    That would mean that you were paying a fair amount more than $0.03 per word.

  10. This strategy maximizes speed, not cost or quality.
