    I'm looking for someone to create SEO case studies for me.

    I'd be looking for you to develop a theory and test against that theory. It could something as simple as "Do blog comments still work?" or "How much can a guest post really help?" and then perform and document multiple tests and write a conclusion of your findings.

    You can create multiple case studies at once, because they are going to take a lot of waiting to see if results come.

    I don't have a word count in mind, but I imagine they'll be 500+ words with 3 or more images.

    Let me know what you can offer me.

    As I have said in PM twice, what are you paying?

    Also where will they be posted?

    Sounds interesting - are you going to publish results here? Would be good to see. Sounds like it will be a fair amount of work to implement though, probably more suited to someone who has some spare domains lying around...

    What do you think they're worth?

    They'll be posted on my blog.

    If you have made $100,000 from your software why dont you just do them yourself and take all the credit and not have to pay people?

    By paying people you will have to cover their expenses that you would have to pay to do it yourself anyway and then pay their fee on top of that.

    Also not having a fixed fee for the project and asking the provider what they think they are worth leads me to think something is fishy here.

    I am not sure what software has to do with anything, but you hire talent in and your brand still gets credit. If they want credit then don't get paid for the work. :/ You really aren't talking to some con artist or punk here man. Obviously this isn't your typical "Native English" writing job or he could go to the marketplace and pay...

    Not having a fixed fee is a good thing. Maybe it's an open ended budget depending on the projects they do together.

    The software thing came from his blog. Yea I understand the concept of outsourcing and the outsourcer taking the credit I was just asking why he isn't doing it himself or why there isn't a list of brief articles he has in mind along with requirements with the price he is willing to pay on each subject.

    lol you're ridiculous. I'm outsourcing it, end of story. The price is left open ended because I don't want a dollar amount putting a limit on who applies.
