    After wading through dozens of applications on Freelancer, I have found someone offering manual social bookmarking. This guy is kinda desperate to make money, although sometimes he is not very easy to understand -- he is a terrible writer.

    So, I hired him anyway. Now he demands me to write the titles + description and send it to him. I did because, you know, his writing is really, really bad.

    I gave him a list of 15 sites to get started. Long story short, he is working from past 3 hours, slowly creating links and checking them like a boss.

    He will create 100 SB links daily. So what's the best rate?

    (I have already fixed the rate but I'd like to know if I was right this time)

    well what rate did you agree to? I don't quite understand your question if you are happy with the service then. We would need a little more information to give you a better answer. First what rate did you agree with him on ? second what nationality is the person doing the work. 5 dollars an hour is a lot of money to some people in India and some other countries.

    What's the difference with doing it with a software? It just seems slower and more expensive to pay someone to do it manually.

    @newsbrand - I know. I should have phrased it in a better way -- "What's the standard rate for manual social bookmarking?"

    He is an Indian. We did agree to a fixed price.

    Many link builders charge less, but they do it through softwares. I agreed to pay this guy $60 for manually posting 3000 social bookmarking links. He was really hesitant, but he is doing it anyway. Looks like he is working 3-4 hours to post 100 links.

    @GiorgioB - Slow, yes. Expensive, maybe. Benefits of manual posting are endless -- I ask him to do more than just "submit story." He also "clips" stories, registers and works on new social bookmarking sites that are barely spammed (I own a couple of good sites too).

    I think I struck a good deal. The place he comes from, and for a student, $60 is a lot of money. I know a lady working 8 hours in a day job, earning $100 per month.
