Welcome to Search Engine Evaluation Exam Simulation Tool!

Why do candidates fail the exam?

When you apply for search engine evaluator jobs at Lionbridge and Appen, you have to pass a qualification exam that is quite difficult. Each company has a name for their search engine project. Appen’s Google Search Engine Evaluation project is called Yukon, and if you work for Lionbridge you work on the Internet Assessor or Internet Safety Evaluator.

Despite all the fancy names, the exam is the same for these companies because the customer is the same but with different vendors. The biggest problem with this exam is that it is very hard. In fact, even Appen and Lionbridge explain in a welcome mail that there is a high chance of failing it. With that said, you’re going to need all the help you can get.

Studying the guidelines and doing the exam simulation practice are essential to successfully passing the actual exam.

If you think this is an exaggeration, then just search for comments on passing the exam simulation and look at the results. You’ll find in a lot of cases people claim that they studied for several days before the exam began and still failed it. With that said, it’s just not possible to demonstrate the knowledge of these guidelines without investing a significant amount of effort in the one-week time frame they give you to study the guide. The guide itself is designed in a way that assesses your ability to understand and apply rating concepts and the rules. There is a lot of material to go over, and it can be a bit confusing. But once again, you’re not going to get anywhere near passing if you don’t start going through the guide.

What is The Exam Simulation Tool? 

I have created a special tool that will help anyone who is getting ready or considering taking the exam. This tool was designed to assist candidates with exam preparation with the main focus on practical rating tasks that include Page Quality, and Search Results Satisfaction ratings. The tool has 5 Page Quality tasks, and 5 Search Results Satisfaction (Needs Met) tasks of all the major query types. (If you’re not sure what a query type is, that is the keyword that a user searches Google for). These include; simple-know, local search, information search, website/navigation, visit-in-person/business which cover basically all rating concepts/tasks types and skills which will be tested during a real exam.

How can this tool can help you pass the exam?

The way the tool is designed will show you exactly your problem area and what you need to focus on. It helps you identify your level of understanding of the rating concepts, and your ability to apply them by practicing first, and then identifying your weak points. You will receive your overall score (pass or fail), detailed feedback on your mistakes and know exactly what you need to go back and study in the guide. Of course we need to mention that there are no real actual exam tasks because that isn’t going to help you understand anyway. Each one of these is hand designed from the most typical exam tasks, and is also designed to be the best simulation possible. If you pass this, you will be ready to pass the actual exam. 

How do I get my hands on the exam simulation tool?

If you want to get started right now, all you have to do is signup using your email. We put a lot of work into this, and so there is a small $25 fee for the tool...However...

Join Payoneer and Get The Fee Back!

If you are an Appen or Leapforce candidate you’re going to get that $25 fee right back, and we’ll tell you how. If you get a job at one of these places you’re going to need Payoneer account because that is the only payment option available for these companies. Simply sign up for Payoneer under my referral link and you’ll get the simulation tool subscription fee back because Payoneer gives new accounts an extra $25 once their account receives $1000 in ongoing transactions.

Tim, you and your simulation has been the best help I could have ever had. I would recommend this simulation to everyone that is trying for either the Appen or the Lionbridge rater positions. Your fee is reasonable and your attentiveness to helping people is the best. Keep up the great work.

I was frustrated because I failed the exam...and I even studied that guide for 3 days! I thought for sure I will pass the exam.,..but was shocked when I didn't. I never leave comments anywhere, but I had to tell you that I went online searching for help, found your tool, and I gave it a shot. I am happy to say that I passed the exam on my second try and am now a search engine evaluator! I can't thank you enough...and getting the $25 back from Payoneer was just icing on the cake! Thanks so much for developing this tool! It is worth every penny!
