    I was wondering what tasks you ask seo va's to do to 'test' or 'vet' them to see if they can. A- do the work and B - Know what they are doing? I dont want to hire someone on upwork for a 500$ project when i dont know if they can do the work. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    Reported for spam.
    Ad for the OP questions, it depends from what kind of job do you need, how good are you, yourself, at it. The better you know what needs to be done, the better you will know which guys are capable of your job.

    Like i said SEO tasks. I rank well with other sites. I want to know exactly what others do to 'test' va's in terms of seo. Do you say 'build the best 5 links' you can in a day. or more specific, like make a web 2.0 from an expired domain ect.

    you can do a quick skype interview to see if they know what they are supposed to do; this can include a test, like make them do a small task for a small fee like $25, then you know what and how they can do the work required; worse case you spent $25 on a task poorly done, best case you found a great VA and got a $25 task very well done.

    I give them actual work... things that I actually need done.

    I don't give them a ton of work but I do give them legitimate tasks I need done on a regular basis.

    I also do a fair amount of talking with them before I bring them aboard for the initial work to make sure they understand what I want.

    Should they do that well, I bring them on board and if I have work for them that they do not know how to do down the road I just make videos and show them what I need done and that usually works pretty well for tutorials.
