Hire-a-coder type websites

the oDesk thread below makes it sound less than reputable.. pharmokan mentioned that freelancer isn’t much better.

I don’t have a ton of cash and I’m not 110% sure I’m ready to hire someone yet, but I might in the near future.

Looking for a script/software that will scrape prices from multiple websites and compare them. Kind of like what the priceblink addon for firefox does.. but I want it to be a huge catalog/CSV (excel) of data. Not only when I type in a product name.

The Future of Websites? Where websites change based on each person? Live controllers.

Where you can browse a site and a person in the background modifies the site based on what you’re looking at and provides on-screen suggestions and live support and a walk-through.. All while being hidden, they can see your heat-map and cursor in real time. And where you look at a product page and they setup the next page or change the homepage specials to constantly reflect your interests.. All in real time.

A neural network is best suited to this type of thing.

oDesk for SEO and SMM?

Forgive me as I am new to all of this.

I’m having a consulting firm help finish up a webstore and start some SEO stuff for it. It obviously is big money. I am wondering about the effectiveness of these sub $10 an hour so called "SEO/SMM experts."
