business referrals en-US Google pays you $10 per business referral <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-blog-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/google-pays-you-10-per-business-referral" class="imagecache imagecache-250w imagecache-linked imagecache-250w_linked"><img src="" alt="google chinese search results" title="google chinese search results" class="imagecache imagecache-250w" width="250" height="214" /></a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Google is launching a <a href="">business referral program</a>, which means that you can earn $10 for every verified business listing that you send Google. You basically go to local businesses, tell them a bit about Google, take down some info, take some digital photos, and submit the information to Google.</p> <p>Kind of like <a href="">Yelp</a>, only you don&#39;t get to give much of an opinion, and you actually get cash in return.</p> <p><em>As a Google Business Referral Representative, you&#39;ll visit local businesses to collect information (such as hours of operation, types of payment accepted, etc.) for Google Maps, and tell them about Google Maps and Google AdWords. You&#39;ll also take a few digital photos of the business that will appear on the Google Maps listing along with the business information. After the visit, you submit the business&#39; info and photo(s) to Google through your Local Business Referrals Center, and we&#39;ll pay you up to $10 for each listing that is approved by Google and verified by the business.</em></p> <p>Want to make some extra cash? You have to be a U.S. citizen, over 18 years of age, and able to fill out a W-9 form. As long as you make more than $25 per month, Google will send you a monthly check. Keep in mind that you will eventually have to declare the income on your taxes.</p> <p>I&#39;ve always been slightly wary of stuff that Google does, but seeing as how they pay me to blog, I guess I can&#39;t turn my nose up at TOO many of their offers. But don&#39;t take this as an endorsement per se. Just an FYI.</p> <p>*Update* <a href="">Dumb Little Man</a> beat me to this post. Drat! I thought I was the first one to find out about it.</p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="">Andrea Karim</a> of <a href="">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="">credit card comparison</a> website.
