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.
Compensation Per Survey
Most surveys will award between 500-1000 points; the longer the survey, generally, the more points that are awarded.

I like the surveys. They are interesting. They are usually fairly short. How only get 500 points a survey and it takes 30,000 points to get a reward. I have been a member for a few months now and only have 9500 points. It is going to take a while to earn a reward. I will update review when I get there.
I love this site. It has lots of surveys and they are always interesting. I can add bits to my profile easily and they pay out on time. Pay out is at £50 but you do get to that amount by working hard for them.
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.
I love this survey company. It gives me a lot of surveys to do and the questions are easy to understand.
I have been involved with many paid survey sites over the last 6 or 7 years, including You Gov. Sadly I have noticed that the vast majority of these sites are now paying less and less for the rewards on offer, and You Gov is no exception. Whereas a couple of years ago most decent sites paid the equivalent of the minimum wage and above, now you are looking at average earnings of £3.00 per hour if you're lucky. I have also noticed that there seems to be an increasing number of unpaid polls and prize draw surveys, which You Gov are no doubt making money out of even though we are not. And if you are taking part in a cash paying survey you have to be very careful not to click on the wrong button at the end otherwise you end up sacrificing your hard earned cash for prize draw entries which is rather sneaky. Whilst they are a legitimate site, the £50 threshold is way too high and I would imagine many people give up well before they reach this figure, lining YouGov's bank account in the process. At the moment my balance stands at £23, which on principle I don't see why I should give back to them when it is my money not theirs. So I shall wait until I've reached the £50 threshold (probably in about a year's time!) then I am quitting. If you are looking on survey sites like YouGov as a hobby or a way of killing some time then they are worth joining, but if it's extra cash you are looking for then they are a waste of time.
