Mturk guide for understanding the Mturk system

INTRODUCTION:

Mturk (Mechanical Turk) is a service offered by Amazon (a leading online eStore) through which people can get their work done by someone else in exchange of giving him money. And if you are dedicated to this work, then you can make a lot of money through it. Mturk is basically a medium between people who want their work done (like writing an article, categorizing things, finding some sort of website, etc) and people who want to work online and earn. There are thousands of tasks available to do at Mturk. So now, we can say that Mturk service provides two things:

1- To get your work done quickly.
