List of Freelance Websites
This list of freelance websites is far from definitive. Neither is it a list of the best freelance websites as no feedback has been gathered. As with all things online use common sense when looking for work or wanting work done. Pay by, and get paid by, results. If it looks to good to be true it probably is and upfront fees are a no-no. Taking a line from a 1980's cop show: Hey, let's be careful out there.
This list of freelance websites is also biased towards Information Technology (IT) jobs, as that currently dominates collaborative online working. With regards to ranking, it is currently based upon Alexa global traffic ranks. Not on performance or service. The more popular sites may present more opportunities, but will also have more competition. If you want to provided feedback on any site or believe a good freelance website should be added to the list then send a mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Freelance websites that accept jobs of a questionable nature (e.g. create bot for xyz, clone xyz website, ask for upfront "fees") will not be listed (and thus no Craigslist).
