Online crowdsourcing provides new opportunities for ordinary people to create original content. This has led to a rapidly growing volume of user-generated content, and consequently a challenge to readily identify high quality items.

We evaluate this effect experimentally using Amazon Mechanical Turk and show that it is possible to manipulate attention to accomplish desired goals.
