I would like to build a social top ranking web based system (linux/php/mysql). We can start with music artist/hip hop as the category. (artist name/music genre). But we should be able to apply this system to any niche market (business category/subcategory).
So for example you take all of the artists in Hip Hop. Add them to the DB (I will provide this data), and the system will go out to the web and bring back data through the social site API and store it in the DB.
Artists Info | System Check:
Official Website | Alexa US ranking
Facebook Fan Page | Number of fans/likes
Twitter | Number of Followers & Number of Mentions
YouTube | Channel views and video views
MySpace | Number of friends
Google Keyword Tool | total US and total global search (artist name)
we can addition social site APIs as we grow.
This would be really nice for now.
