The best contest is many contests. Instead of thinking "this contest seems trashy I'll skip it" I suggest you keep an open-mind and just start solving.

      What do you mean by saying bad contest? Does it contain only implementation problems? You should be good at solving implementation problems. Is it a math round? You should know the math that appears in programming contests. So practice all contests and remember that a great coder can perform well in any contest, not only in good ones.

      I'm saying to stop wasting your time only looking for the "best contests" and just start solving problems.

Codeforces Round #328 (Div. 2) is the best of course :)

You can look at how many upvotes a contest got to see how good it was. Of course, many people upvote before the contest and there could be technical issues that lead to downvotes but it is generally a good indicator of how well people liked the round.

You could try contests writer wise, although there are many, I'd recommend trying few of those made by DarthKnight

All educational are good. The problems touch diverse topics like graph, dp, bin search, etc.
