    Maybe being a little paranoid, but it seems shady. First of, didn't click the link so I'm only going by what y'all have said, but asking that much info pre survey? And a promise of a Visa gift card? Google could afford it, but I wouldn't think they'd have to offer it to get responses. Just my thoughts, good luck to all that are willing.

    I've done a number of Google UX studies, and that's how they do it. I would guess that the presurvey is to figure out who would be good study subjects for a given service. So if you answered that you use Google+ a lot, they might contact you for a study about improvements they're working on (which I've done before). If you never use it, they know not to put you on that list.

    And yes, every time I completed a study, I got a $100 gift card (sometimes more), through Google's Perks Rewards program.

    I too have done a ton of these. I've been to Mountain View and Google's SF Office for follow ups, and can assure you it's legit. I've seen/tested beta software and was even asked to test hardware for them as a result (Project Jaquard). I have another appointment this week as a matter of fact!

    One thing I wish they would do is save my answers so I don't have to repeat my answers for every new project survey. It's a huge PITA.

    It is legit. Not some random person impersonating Google.

    If you aren't comfortable with it then simply don't fill it out. Easy fix .

    They're asking you about how you use various Google services -- not about personal habits. And I think the number of questions asked depended on how many Google services you mentioned that you've used. If you only said you use YouTube, then you probably would've gotten much fewer questions (but then again, you'd have less chance of being asked to participate in the study, since they want to get input from people who are familiar with the various services). I think I only left a few of the checkboxes blank in the initial question about which services I've tried, so my questionnaire was pretty long.

    I love the fact that after all the Google and tech questions, it finished with "Have you experienced an earthquake or tornado in the past 12 months?" - How random!

    Weird! Maybe it wanted to know if you interacted with any emergency alerts through Google. They might be looking for ways to improve that service as well.
