Google's Top Contributors are individuals across the globe that work for Google for free. They spend tons of their free time and often company time, in Google help forums, answering questions from frustrated Google consumers.
On this portal, it shares details about that a top contributor is, who some of the top contributors are, and how to become one. In fact, some of my favorite top contributors are in these videos talking about what they do. Google also shares the great benefits of becoming a top contributor, including:
- You Get Product Knowledge
- and Acknowledged Expertise
- and Special Access To Googlers and Events
I don't think top contributors get rich off of doing what they do - they mostly do it because they love helping people. And the abuse some of these contributors have to take - trust me - these guys deserve a lot more.
Here is a video on the program:
