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 like this survey group, even though it takes awhile to reach a payout threshold. The surveys are on salient and engaging topics, are well written and you can review the results of the survey. I visit everyday. The screen-out rate is very low, so even with infrequent surveys you actually make progress.
That being said, don't expect over $100 a year, and that's when letting the points accumulate to earn progressively better return.
I get several surveys a week, rarely screened out, I like that I can get a physical Visa prepaid card as a reward. You Brits are lucky you only need accumulate 50 quid to cash out. In the US it's $100. Takes me almost a year to accumulate that much. But I like the simple surveys albeit they are tedious and plodding for the most part.
This on the whole is a good platform - interesting topics presented in a simple way, where you can leave opinions on news stories as well as products and brands. However, the £50 payment threshold takes a LONG time to reach - I have only ever cashed out once from YouGov. The payment was received quickly, though. Sign up if you go for interesting over lucrative!
I really like this panel. It is interesting. I always qualify for a survey. They credit as soon as you finish. The only drawback to the panel is each survey is 500 points. You need 30,000 to cash out for a $25 gift card. This means you have to take at least 60 surveys. Considering the importance of the surveys especially regarding politics they really should pay more points. If you don't mind taking a lot of surveys it is a good honest panel. They credit and qualify each survey. They usually are interesting and not repetitive
I'm very impressed with YouGov; their surveys are often about topical issues so you get a chance to say what you think. As well, their surveys are short and to the point.
YouGov take while to pay via PayPal, but I have never had a problem with them.
