In order to expand upon the business data within Google Maps, Google is seeking Business Referral Representatives, where Google will pay contributors to the program.
From the FAQ, there are important considerations. This offer is only available to US residents, 18 years of age or older. You must be able to complete an IRS Form W-9. Also, you should have a computer and a digital camera.
Each referral can earn contributors up to $10 ($2 for the approval + $8 for a business owner's verification). You will receive a monthly check if you earn $25 or more.
Ironically, due to previous questions on forums, Google has also clarified that you are not a Googler if you participate in this program.
Google Business Referral Representatives are independent contractors to Google, not employees. As a contractor, you'll be paid according to the terms of the program, but won't receive employment benefits such as health insurance or paid vacation.
Well, at least that's settled. :)
