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 don't do their surveys much anymore. They were giving out 100 points per survey, and after a year I only had 1200 points. I need 1700 to get one of their tote bags. I don't really bother with this panel anymore.
UPDATE! have now cashed out twice in 5 years. It seems that this year I am getting ore invites, and some are for over the regular 500. I rarely get DQ'd with this site. I am holding one because at least they have been consistent with sending out surveys. I get one at least weekly, the longest I have gone is 2 weeks.
I love YouGov. take forever to get to the $100 Amazon Gift Card. Just cashed out for first time. Site is great just take forever on the points but I love it and I would recommended anyone
I asked for my $100 check after taking 5 years to earn it and I cant seem to get it or an answer as to where it is.I asked for it on 10/6/12 and as of today 11/24/12 I haven't received it.It's been over 7 weeks and they wont answer my emails.In fact they have never answered any emails I have sent them.Wonder if anyone has ever been stiffed by this company?
Four years later I am still taking their surveys and their turn around to pay people has gotten better.Plus most of their surveys are original and not as monotonous as other sites.I have cashed out a few times since my last post and they are most definitely better about paying.
Surveys are frequent (one a day). You get 50p for each survey, occasionally 25p or a prize draw entry so it would take you 3-5 months to reach the £50 cash out amount. Surveys sent are often a repeat of one sent the previous day, What party you vote for or what you watched on TV with 1 or 2 questions different, luckily you can just press next without answering the question.
U Gov is an excellent survey company they give many survey's and great points I have used my points and the gift cards have come with in 2 weeks time
I definitely recommend this survey company
