What do you think, which is the best freelancers network out there, in terms of job offers, pricing and stuff?

Do you think its oDesk, or eLance or something else?

I do some occasional gigs on oDesk, and i can say it's really hard to get into a job, if you're really not active there.

Ok, that's good to know. Are you satisfied with the contractors on freelancer.com? What are their prices - cheap, realistic or over the top :D?

I love Freelancer.com. I don't like eLance and oDesk. I find them difficult to navigate, and it's extremely hard to get a gig there. At Freelancer.com, you still have to compete with Indians charging $2 per hour, but there are also many employers who are looking for high-quality work.

I have better results with seoclerks.com, they seem to be more established and have a lot of both users and customers. They seem to be up there with Fiverr in terms of popularity too.

What about sites like SEOClerks, too? I get a lot of jobs through there and they're pretty reliable.

Outside of that, I like Elance.

I've heard a lot of good feedback about Elance and Freelancer. I haven't maximized them yet, though.

As a buyer I think you should join SEOClerks, you can find a lot of contracts worth buying depending on your needs. As a seller however there are some things I think need work. My biggest pet peeve is seeing all of the "featured" postings for $1 items. Do the math, it costs $80 to get featured and they aren't selling 80 items so they probably aren't paying the $80 feature cost. Are they friends of the site? Owner projects? Is there a way to get featured for free?
