    It probably depends on what you do, but I've managed a 100% increase on advertised rates over the last two years, but it's came with 3 months on the bench for each year.

    Basically, I just set my price and wait for the client to fail trying to place candidates, or go with less qualified candidates and fail to deliver. Market rates for roles are apparently set by someone checking jobserve and seeing what the ads are offering.

    Thing is, it's the roles that aren't getting placed that last the longest, so the ads don't necessarily reflect reality.

    It most certainly does. Your standard roles like PM, BA etc will have people lining up equally skilled and someone will take it at market rate. If you are niche then yes, could work.
