Search around online for a bit and you will find what seems like a slew of data entry work from home opportunities… or will you? The truth is that the majority of these online data entry jobs are misleading you. What they offer is not actually a job, it’s an opportunity to advertise with AdWords which is really free for anyone to do.
The ‘data entry from home’ scam became so prevalent that Google finally banned all data entry related advertisements from their network.
Fortunately real, legitimate telecommuting data entry jobs do exist. They don’t pay $500 a day like many of the old advertisements claimed, but they do provide an opportunity to make money from the comfort of your own home.
In general these data entry jobs will require you to take a typing test, or provide your typing speed on your application – you can take a Free Typing Test online to find this information.
This is a list of resources for finding real work from home data entry jobs. Although I’ve done my best to make sure all of these companies are legitimate and hiring, things change and I can’t keep up with all the websites listed here. So please use your best judgment when applying for any online job – always remember that you should never have to pay anyone to apply for a job.
