This is a fundamental SEO principle that you should keep in mind not only when writing a resource box for an article, but also when you're designing your web pages.

So, to do this right, you'll want your odor eater article's resource box to have an odor eater keyword-laden link pointing to an odor eater page on your running shoes website. Does that make sense?

If you're writing artic|es and submitting them to article directories, you also need to be posting those artic|es on your 0wn website.

Search engines don't like to see a lot of duplicate content, so take this little extra step to make sure that your page is unique.

2. When you post your project, ensure that you detail EXACTLY what is required. The more informationrepparttar better. If you start adding torepparttar 136062 brief after a freelancer has placed his/her bid, expectrepparttar 136063 price to rise....

3. Try and keeprepparttar 136064 brief as simple as possible. Remember that English may not berepparttar 136065 first language of some ofrepparttar 136066 freelancers and whilst I have never had any communication problems (in fact, most ofrepparttar 136067 programmers I have used have a better standard of written English thanrepparttar 136068 majority of my fellow countrymen!), it makes sense not to over-complicate matters with slang etc that may not be understood.

4. Don't always opt forrepparttar 136069 lowest bid. All ofrepparttar 136070 freelance sites listed below allow you to view feedback ratings for freelancers and I usually base my decision on this rating. I would rather pay a bit extra and use someone with a superb rating than save a bit of money and use a new freelancer. They may be great at what they do but unfortunately when you are dealing with people at a distance, you have no way of knowing and in my view, it isn't worthrepparttar 136071 risk and potential extra hassle. Go with someone that has already proven themselves.

5. If your project is to create something that you want to resell (for example a software product or an eBook) make sure that you stress inrepparttar 136072 brief that atrepparttar 136073 end ofrepparttar 136074 project, you will ownrepparttar 136075 copyright and will have access torepparttar 136076 source code/files. Obviously you want to ensure thatrepparttar 136077 freelancer doesn't come back to you inrepparttar 136078 future complaining that you are selling his/her work and that you can editrepparttar 136079 product if you need to without having to findrepparttar 136080 original creator. It would also be wise to include a condition stating thatrepparttar 136081 freelancer is not allowed to use your product inrepparttar 136082 future for someone else or indeed sell it themselves.

As for which freelance site to use, there are three that I recommend but my absolute fave is and this is definitely my 'site of choice'.
