Are you serious??? How on EARTH should we know what you want to call yourself??? Forum etiquette prevents my saying more.

Nah, I got that covered. As I said, forum etiquette prevents my making the suggestions that come to mind.

I know the thread is locked, but:
Quoting:
A study of 3.8 million tasks completed by 2,767 workers on Amazon's Mechanical Turk showed that “workers earned a median hourly wage of about $2 an hour” with 4 percent of workers earning more than $7.25 per hour.
Not a good deal for the worker.

One final remark:

https://www.workfromhomewatchdog.com/is-amazon-mechanical-turk-a-scam/

to add more info to Russ's post.

I've had a friend who did something similar working for a Google contractor in identifying search trends. There were rules to follow and sometimes arguments ensued as you battled with other contractors to justify why you thought the search terms meant A versus someone not in the know saying it means B. (many housewives would get into the work and weren't always aware of youth trends)

Also it seemed that the contractor companies work to distance you from the primary company in order to avoid certain labor laws and the benefits that full regular employees get from the named company.

With respect to title, I would say simply information analyst as you are analyzing information and making money from your analysis. This would work well on your resume and not draw too much attention to the job while at the same filling in time gaps that do cause questions to be asked.

Final closing of this thread.
