Do any of you outsource your on-site SEO?

    On-site SEO is simple enough (comparatively) - there's a pretty standard formula that you can follow for most sites, and it'll get the job (at least 90%) done. It can also be fairly time-consuming, so it's something I'd like to outsource. But I can't for the life of me find a reasonable contractor who can do it.

    It seems like I've interviewed every person on oDesk at this point, and they tend to fit into one of 4 categories:
    1. Good skills, terrible English
    2. Good English, terrible/outdated skills
    3. Terrible English & terrible/outdated skills (the biggest group by far)
    4. Good English & skills, but they want $50/hr, and work slowly.

    Do any of you outsource your on-site SEO? It seems like a very logical thing to outsource, much more so than off-site. If you do, where in the world do you find good help? It just blows me away that I can find a dozen excellent web designers & coders before I can find a single halfway decent SEO guy.

    See, that's the annoying part. I'm not even looking for any guarantees of ranking, etc. - there's more required for that than just on-site. The annoying thing is that their guarantees (proper on-site with good English) shouldn't be all that hard to fulfill, and yet they fail so miserably.
