Does anyone know any websites to post jobs and receive bids for web design and SEO?

What sort of qualities do you want to look for or questions do you want to ask a potential designer as you're vetting the bidders?

Thanks

Ask to see portfolios.  Ask for, and actively check, references.  Look for networks and recommendations on LinkedIn.

aye.  In addition, I've been using PeoplePerHour and VWorker for years and have had pretty good success in getting jobs done (and of course receiving jobs)

I would look for someone with good communication skills and someone who listens. There's nothing worse than wasting valuable time and energy trying to explain what you need and how you need it done, and it doesn't get received on the other end. Apart from that, ask for 3-5 of the most relevant references - a lot of people seem to like to post dozens of references and links. You probably don't have time to go through them all, so, ask for just a few, and if they don't listen, it's a good way to shorten your shortlist :)

For design, look for design references you like, and if you work with WordPress or Joomla, for example, ask for that specific experience.

Most of these platforms have rating/feedback systems, so look through the feedback of potential developers/designers, and see how others got on with them.
