Over the years I’ve dabbled in just about every work at home job niche there is and I always come back to one, Search Engine Evaluation.
What do Search Engine Evaluators do? In short, we evaluate web results and help improve search engine results.
For example, if you go to a search engine and type in “birthday party ideas for kids” you expect to get results pertaining to just that.
You would not expect to get results about bachelorette parties. As a Search Engine Evaluator, your jobs is to make sure that the returned results are relevant to what the user wants. i.e. birthday party ideas for kids.
This job is all about relevancy and what is helpful for the person on the other end.

What more can a Mom ask for?
I have worked as a Search Engine Evaluator since 2012 and absolutely love it!
Just last week both of my kids were sick, I was at the doctor’s office three times and my oldest missed four days of school. I didn’t have to worry about calling out, missing work and an angry employer.
I worked when I could and that was that.
Being a Search Engine Evaluator is a Stay at Home Mom’s dream job! The only issue is that there is a HUGE learning curve and it can be discouraging starting out. BUT, if you stick with it you will learn and it becomes second nature in no time!
**BONUS** Lionbridge & Leapforce offer positions as EMPLOYEES!

The application process is pretty simple.
- Fill out an online application

You do have to pass an exam to get in, they give you all the materials you just have to study.
When I say study I mean it, don’t half-ass it or you won’t get in. Unfortunately, I had to sign an NDA or I’d dish all the details!
If you want to be a stay at home Mom, but know your family cannot make it on one income becoming a Search Engine Evaluator is a great option!
