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.

I have been taking these surveys for years and in the last year or so I've noticed they send surveys say you'll get 1000 points upon completion but only get 500. They also wait until you finish a survey for a certain amount of points and then ask if you'd like to take another survey for more points. If you click yes and do the survey often you're only given original points promised on 1st survey instead of points promised on both surveys. Take screen shots of what they promise before you take the survey. You'll need to take more time to send in a complaint with the screen shot. Sometimes they give you the points, other times they blow you off. It takes a long time to get enough points for anything significant so be aware you may not get what they promise.
Yougov is quite unique in that centres more on political views than any other survey site I've ever encountered.
Members have to obtain 5000 points in order to cash out £50 but at around 25-50 points per survey (which are at times few and far between), it can take a long time to reach that stage.
One gripe I have is that sometimes they purposefully deceive members for while they sometimes promise point rewards for some of their surveys, you are instead entered into a poll instead; blatant deception that needs to stop.
I've been taking ugov surveys for probably the last 7 years or more. I didn't always take the surveys on a regular basis, just when I had the time to do so. So, it took me quite a while to get up to 100,000 points but I finally did it. I chose a $100 amazon gift card and I did receive it about a month later. So, I'd have to say I'm pretty happy with the results. They gave me 500 points for each survey completed.
In a recent post i said i had never had a problem with them right now i have to say i have had my first problem with them. The problem isn't with payment it's with there speed on getting back to people when they have problems. I have emailed them twice over crediting me with the points i earned that never showed up in my account, The survey said at first it was add like 1500 points to my account then it went on and i didn't qualify for that one so it put me on a survey about Android pay that one they said would add 1000 points to my account, i did the survey and at the end of that 15 or 20 minute survey it said i earned 500 points but there site didn't even add that to my account. Keep in mind it said 1000 points is what i should have got.
This is still a good site to work for ever site has some kind of problem it's the speed they try and take care of the problem in this case.
