I wanted to get some competitor research done. My job posting detailed that I want the URL's, domain PR, inner page PR and top keywords for 30-50 sites in my niche. I have had 6 applicants say that they are more than willing to do blog commenting 40 hours a week and have experience with Angela and Pauls backlinks. I sent a message to one applicant outlining once again what I want done and asking if he was able to provide 2 examples of what I wanted (IE - send me the URLs of 2 sites in my niche) and he replied saying that he was unable to commence blog commenting because I didn't give him my URL or keyword.
I envy the people who have the patience to outsource.
