Hi guys, I posted a similar thread not long ago. Unfortunately that thread got me a lot of non-qualified people applying and I did not have the time to sort through everyone. In this thread, I want to make it a little more clear as to what I am looking for, so that hopefully any responses generated turn into something good with less time being wasted. I've just hired 2 people on oDesk to do SEO work, but both are failing miserably at meeting deadlines. Both hired yesterday, both promised a work report to be delivered today and currently both offline, no work done or delivered - 1st day on the job. Obviously I am pissed off with their problems in meeting deadlines. I work in the real world with real clients, and this is something that cannot exist. Requirements: * Must meet deadlines well. Delays at times are fine, but not your first day on the job. * Must be able to work initially at least 20 hours per week, with a further requirement of being able to work 5 days of the week (can't blast away for 10hrs a day, 2 days and the rest of the week quiet). * Must have decent understanding of SEO. Things like making web 2.0's with hyperlinks contextually placed within content and not right at the very end as I've been experiencing with a lot of people. Your work quality must be high, especially on Tier 1 sites. * Must have experience with SEO software. Name which software you have experience with. Further, name which software you currently have access to (if any). That seems to be all for now. Please touch on all points of the above requirements when PM'ing me. I won't be able to reply to everyone, so those who seem to meet requirements will likely be the ones to see a reply. Please also send me some previous work reports if you have any, or just proof that you know what you are doing. Thank you!
