I was jut wondering where the US dollar is worth the most in other countries?

Are those two sentences the same or different? I dont know.

    hmmm...labour for what (if you don't mind saying). This one might need to be questioned ethically...

      well, you might be able to get cheap work in countries where their English isn't great - and you'll have many more communication issues which will end up costing you more time and probably money in the long run. So, I don't know about going for the cheapest is necessarily the smartest. Where you can get a lot of bang for your buck though...are places like the Phillipines and
      sometimes India, though I've noticed a dramatic increase in prices lately.

      Why?

      People in third world countries are starving...and he's throwing out a lifeline to save one person and their family...why is that so evil?

    If you want to outsource writing to someone in a third world country, good luck with that. My only advice is that you get what you pay for. Cheap price, cheap quality.

      Really depends on what you are looking to outsource. I have had some good luck with articles and blog posts with India. You have to be very picky with them and explain exactly what you want. If they don't deliver you have to fire them immediately... Keep doing that and you will find some good outsourcing people.

      Yep I certainly agree with your quote. I also think that hiring cheap labor is not always the smartest thing to do. Sometimes it is justified to pay more!

      This whole cheap labor thinking has really diminished the true value of good website content and I have a feeling that things will change in the not too distant future.

      I'm not saying that outsourcing to cheap labor countries is a bad thing to do Quite the contrary. The question you should ask yourself before outsourcing is "what can be outsourced without damaging my online reputation?" and to whom can I outsource this?

      For example:

      Outsourcing any link building and SEO work to countries like the Philippines and India is pretty much risk-free as these guys really do know their stuff.
      Outsourcing writing to these countries is a huge risk - you could be extremely lucky in finding a great writer, or most likely find yourself having to edit most of their work.

      This is a good point. I outsource to the US for my writing stuff. For programming and web design, I'd suggest the Philippines.

      Post your job on Elance.com and you'll get an idea for different countries and their general pricing, etc.

      My advice is renew your domain name before it expire. Your domain name is for sale now

    I have been outsourcing from Bangladesh with great success. The standard of living (=prices) are cheaper there than India or Pakistan.

      I hired someone from Scriptlance after geting a sample... but the actual work sucks... There's a lot or words I don't even understand (or I think used improperly) that I had to ask him to rework or else he will not get paid... For cheap with higher quality, I think Philippines is still the best option...

      If someone really needs an excellent content for standard price of $4/500-word article, use http://cyberhubonline.com/. Their quality of articles are real top notch and all of my suggested keywords are used without messing-up the whole content... Their writers are English... I only use them for EZA articles but for all other articles for other directories, I pay $1.5/300-word for someone from scriptlance.

      I think Philippenes
      I think Philippenes has least.
      I agree .........
      I don't see any substance on both comments... can't even pronounce Philippines correctly, eh!

    I'd support what primeoutsourcing said. Not that I have done it yet myself, but I am learning heaps about IM and Philippines has been repeatedly mentioned as the best place for outsourcing - their level of education is very high and English skills are great.
