    If you know exactly what you need down to the most minute detail, Upwork is good. However, if you are inexperienced and looking for professionals, it is a terrible place to get anything done. People who are the bottom of the bottom tier in their profession will charge insane prices for terrible work. This is true in graphic design, content writing, development, SEO, etc etc. Only outsource if you know how to do your own quality control.

    There are some good resources on Blackhat, Warrior forum, put ads locally etc.. train people to work for you, there is a couple other places that allow you to hire from their countries but my best success is local ads and either find someone you can monitor or train someone a small piece of what you do and go from there.

    Sorry for the miscommunication. I'm not looking to sell services, rather, looking to hire someone for seo work on my site.

    My experience has been really hit or miss on Upwork. My team manages a number of outsourced linkbuilders from that platform, but you really need to develop an ongoing relationship to get consistent quality work. I have found that creating templates of how I expect their work to be delivered upfront is the best to eliminate communication issues.

    I moved over to upwork for all my content orders rather than using the BHW market place and as long as you know what you want you can get a bunch of bargains. Personally, I have no experience trying to find SEOs on there and I would imagine it would be a nightmare as your initial order could be pretty expensive rather than $5-$25 on a test article.

    Couldn't agree more with this, again my background is in buying content rather than SEO and links but building a relationship and using templates so they know what you need is essential.
