    so yesterday I posted my first job on freelancer: I offered 30-35$ for 10 professionally rewritten articles, with keyword integration and whatnot;
    my top bidders are:
    1st: indian guy, 637 reviews with 73% completion rate and a rating of 4.5; bid: 39$
    2nd: pakistani dude, 323 reviews with 86% completion rate and a rating of 4.8; bid: 33$
    3rd: pakistani hombre, 139 reviws with 67% completion rate and a rating of 4.8; bid: 30$
    4th: UK person (not sure if male or female lol), 264 reviews with 81% completion rate and a rating of 4.9; bid: 63$ (wut)

    now, this being my first project, I want to ask you for an advice: which would you choose? Personally, I would go for the second bidder (just my guts), but this being my most important 10 articles of a site I'm just starting ('base' articles that I'll probably turn into pages, that would serve as a starting ground for my SEO efforts), I want a second opinion first;

    I haven't had time to check their samples thoroughly yet, but I bet I wouldn't be able to make much of a difference between them ...

    what do you think, bhatters? who should I trust with my lousy 30 bucks?

    Look at the reviews for the top 2 guys, and see which one has better reviews and go with them. IMO, I'd go with the indian guy.

    he is marked as "recommended", so I thought about him, too ... what do you think about the price he's asking? I'm gonna look into their reviews, as you said, thanks for the advice :)

    If you're looking for high quality, pillar articles then I would go with the 4th guy.

    I wouldn't recommend getting articles from Freelancer. =)
