I have been going through countless resumes for someone to work on several of my websites for SEO, and it really does become a blur. What do you all look for when hiring someone in this space? I have applicants that are interesting that charge 10-15 an hour, and I have applicants that want $5000 a month (and some of those admit to outsourcing much of the work overseas)
What are your thoughts on domestic (USA) verse outsourcing for SEO?
Is SEO truly you get what you pay for , or is there some reasonable cap , where some ultra expensive individuals are not providing ultra results , comparatively to moderately expensive priced solutions ?
What are the signs of someone who should be hired, and the red flags to walk away immediately?
Where are the best places to look for a solution?
What is the fair market going rates , from lowest tier to highest quality tier?
Any other useful info or advice is appreciated. Thank you.
