The reason why you don't qualify for every survey you attempt is because of particular demographics that the survey askers are looking for. I agree that it is frustrating to spend over an hour trying to qualify for various surveys and still getting no credit. As patrick122068 mentioned, some sites will actually give you some type of credit, even if you don't qualify. One new site that I like a lot is Paid View Points. All of their surveys are usually multiple choice or limited write-in answers; most can be finished within 5 minutes top. They have two types of surveys... demographic type questions posed by PVP which are used to match you to other surveys as well as to validate that a real person is answering the questions (it notes if some subsequent answer differs from one given earlier). These surveys pay 10-cents and will raise your "trust score" which measures how honest / consistent your answers are, and you get to complete one of these a day. The other type of survey are those asked by consulting questionaires. These don't affect your "trust score" at all, but for every answer you give, you are paid a few cents. So for example you may have a survey that gives 3 cents per answer. Even if you are found not to qualify for the full survey after answering only 3 questions, you are still paid 9 cents (3 questions at 3 cents each=9 cents total) for attempting the survey in the first place.
