    And yes, of course, there are 4 SEO gurus already applied for this job. None of them have any positive ratings, expirience or anything else...I am wondering if the owner of this site is member here, I guess not

    There are tons of posts like that on elance on a daily basis.
    There are tons of people who send a proposal without having any experience/stars/whatever. Not having credentials on elance does not mean you might not have a solid team ready to give good results.

    Been hiring there for the last 2 years and 95% of people without ratings don't have a clue. They are there cause they heard that this can be an easy way to earn money, so they post copy pasted proposals on random jobs. They are totally clueless. Remaining 5% are the ones that will actually made it on Elance. It's like this in real life as well.

    Well the real problem is that, the new people that are in elance and such freelance websites are usually not taking the internet business seriously, so in result, their applying randomly, not delivering the job etc. the list just keeps going on cause I think most of the people(comparing it to the whole world) don't know about it and they don't expect to be able to make a living through the internet.

    Thanks for blanking out my site name. I wouldn't have stood a chance of ranking if you hadn't. ;)

    The buyer needs to be more realistic. I mean the lowest bidder for keywords like diet and weight loss? Their site is going to get tanked.

    BTW, this can be done but only if the owner has a huge budget.

    Here's a better one I saw days ago.

    Budget: Less than $500

    Looking for someone to rank "what's new", "credit card" and "mobile phone" kws on number 1 position of all major search engines.

    They say they will charge less than $500 for such competitive keywords to rank 1st position on search engine. But when you contact them they will say the price is per month.
