The length of each online survey varies, but most are between 5-7 minutes long. Surveys are rarely longer than 20 minutes, as this is considered a maximum.
As with any survey site, YouGov's survey topics can vary, however most of the time, they are politically focused. YouGov's surveys and polling results are frequently published in the media.
Compensation Per Survey
Most surveys will award between 500-1000 points; the longer the survey, generally, the more points that are awarded.
YouGov offers a variety of redemption options for members. Cash payments awarded via PayPal are an option, as are gift cards to retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, iTunes, Walmart, and more. YouGov branded merchandise is also available.
Gift card rewards take approximately 2-3 weeks to receive after redemption. Gift cards are physically mailed.

I have been a member for about 8 months and have qualified for every survey they have sent me. Their surveys are so quick and interesting that I don't pay attention to what points they pay. I did check my balance and looked at my history and found that my points per survey was either 500 or 750 points. I haven't cashed out yet because I want to built it up more. I would recommend YouGov to anyone.
I enjoy this panel: you always qualify AND complete their surveys & they are short. After completing a survey, it takes you to their site where you can give your opinion on current events, as well as entertainment & your interests...books, music, food...etc. They pay promptly ($15 Amazon E-Card) with no hassle--a major plus in my view. I recommend.
Update: Although it takes approx 8 months - 1 year to accumulate the 35k needed for the $15 Amazon, I liked the site. It was fun & you never dq'd on a survey. I've been with them 4 yrs--cashed out 4 times. The last 2 times, I've had to BEG for my hard-earned money. Nothing like having to BEG to get me really mad. Countless emails; being told I have to wait 4 to 6 weeks. 8 weeks later, it came in the mail...yes, SNAIL MAIL! This is ridiculous, it's an E-CARD--which many other panels e-mail you the code within 10 minutes. I will have--and will post--a rant and/or rave, like the rest of you, from time to time; but having to BEG for my money really sends me over the edge! $15.00 a year is ridiculously low to begin with; then having to BEG for it, is UNACCEPTABLE! Do you all know that these companies make an average of $20 per every survey WE do? I thought as much, but I researched it. I knew that & accepted those terms, but I did not agree to not being paid in a timely manner! I'm down-grading them.
While these are a bit further apart, they have a higher completion rate.
They also have wider band of cash out options, and a highly interactive site.
It takes a long time to earn the £50 redemption from this company but three years later and I am on my way to the third £50.
Sometimes surveys are far apart and annoyingly some are for competition entry only or for a paltry 25 points.
But the site is stable and interesting.
I have had no issues or complaints about this company. They offer GCs.
