I'm hiring VAs, for administrative work, SEO, whatever takes time that I don't want to do. What I really want is people who follow directions. Even better if they can figure some things out on their own. Most people can't do either of those things. It's not always obvious who can get stuff done. So I want a way to weed out the non-performers. I'm looking for simple, measurable tasks I can give applicants, to see if they're good... or they suck. Seems to me that white hat SEO is a great way to do this. Some ideas: Paul and Angela's backlinks. See how fast they get it done, and check their links. Use scrapebox to grab all my competitors backlinks. Then have them figure out which pages/sites they can also get backlinks from. But I'm pretty sure there's also various videos/methods etc. in the download forums that I can use as tasks for testing their ability. Any suggestions?
