Why No Surveys on Google Opinion Rewards?

2. Hack for Receiving More Surveys

This particular reward program by Google is one of the genuine revenue making an option. Trying to cheat the app algorithm in any other means is not a healthy advice.

I was researching for few tips and I found the video by Nev’s Tech Bits about Google Rewards.

Apart from the information shared in the above video, the below-mentioned ideas may also help to increase the possibility of getting more surveys.

Hacks on How to Get More Surveys?

Hack 1: Enable GPS Tracking

This mobile application uses GPS tracking information to supply highly relevant surveys. So it is important that you have a GPS enabled handset to make the best revenue out of opinion reward application.

How to Activate GPS Tracking on Android Phone?

In order to make this one working, you need to have your Location tracking option enabled on your smartphone.  you can enable this by following the steps given below:

  1. Open the Apps menu on your phone
  2. Tap on settings
  3. Look for locations options and tap on it
  4. Scroll down until you see Google Location settings
  5. Now travel the button to turn it off or on

Hack 2: Youtube Search History

Google opinion rewards app uses your activity on YouTube especially about those videos that you have searched. The type of video that you frequently watch or the category in which it falls into becomes a very good signal to express your area of interest.

Those business people who are targeting your area of interest can easily take this option to advertise their products in front of you. Few businesses may sign up for Google survey program and you may end up receiving a survey regarding the same.

Hence, youtube search history Plays a major role in sending you related surveys.

Hack 3: Google Account Settings

The basic Google account settings are used for finding the relevant surveys for any user.  so it is a great idea to have these Google settings configured in the right way:

    1. Gender – Please update the right gender. Updating the gender just because of receiving more surveys will lead to account termination. Considering incorrect information.  the surveys that are offered based on gender are exclusively used for business research purposes and gender represented as a survey is always not a correct data for any business to grow and no business will depend on service offered by Google.  so it is important to update the correct gender.

 

  • Enable GPS while traveling –  it’s a good practice to have your GPS enabled every time not only during the time of travel. The places that you visit and the type of travels that you book is going to be considered for sending you surveys.
  • Location Mode in High Accuracy ModeSetting up your location in high accuracy mode gives you a more opportunity to surveys.

 

Hack 4: Editing Google Account Profile

The profile information of your Google account is very very important. It is used for giving you personalized Google services.

For example,  if you have updated your interest area like food, travel;  then Google considers your profile for sending you surveys related to travel and food industries.  You may receive the survey and end up making a small amount of money.

3. Is Google Rewards Available in My Country?

The rewards program is available only in few countries. They are

– India

– Singapore and

– Turkey

This mobile application is yet to be launched in other countries. Even though Google has a plan to expand this program to other countries. We do not have the exact time frame of when this feature will be available. As the demand for this Android application is increasing it may be available in other countries very soon.

4. How Often You Receive Surveys


In general, service is sent frequently. It is not necessary that you need to receive a survey every day.  the frequency of service you receive is completely dependent on your travel activities, Google account settings,  features available on your phone.

Please note that Google opinion rewards program is not a get rich quick program. It is a reward program offered for your opinions.  the rewards cannot be encashed.  you can only be used for shopping on Google Play services like  Google apps,  Google books,  Google movies, Google music,  Google Newsstand  Google devices.
