Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) is willing to pay online surfers to browse the Web and share data about their travels with the search engine giant.
The company has begun soliciting users for its Screenwise program, in which it will pay Chrome users in Amazon gift cards to surf Websites. Users must install a lightweight browser extension, which will pass along data about Websites they visit via Chrome to Google.
"What we learn from you, and others like you, will help us improve Google products and services and make a better online experience for everyone," Google wrote on the Screenwise landing page. Participants must 13 years old or older, have a Google Account and, of course, use Chrome.
Participants will receive a $5 Amazon gift card code for simply installing the Screenwise browser extension. Users can earn another $5 Amazon code for every three months that they continue in the Screenwise program, totalling up to $25 total credit in Amazon codes.
