This is basically a customized google design of a search engine type thing for African countries . there will be minimal country customization. When user selects a country, they are taken to the to the country pages,
1. Where, the news feeds will be for the country
2. The flag will be for country
3. The google app map will show the country focused
• The ads are all google ads. The site has a home page for Africa as a whole, and country pages. Please see sketch diagram for new design arrangements
• I would be happy if scripts can be used for as much site capability as possible instead of trying to develop your own scripts.
Required component list
1. Main feature will the main page of with the search bar . the generation of results is the most important function, I am foregoing every other thing there could be so that this function works perfect., I will provide the results in excel [url removed, login to view] features could later be added later but the focus for now is to get it going
Ability to produce appropriate results is paramount to this item. An entry into the database will have the usual site title, desc, keywords,metatags etc.
Priority of display for results( to be discussed further)
1. 100% match of searched keyword in Website Title & Website description+website keywords
2. 100% match of title
3. 100% match in Website keywords
4. 100% match in Website description
5. keyword% variation only acceptable after the searched term ,NO variations before the keyword %keyword
6. Phrases must have all words present in either title and description, ie if a search is done for "great car", in the examble below note that variation has been allowed after the keyword car to accept cars(=car%)
2. The results page with google advertising to make it simple. If u can use a script for the admanagement great but i don’t expect complications otherwise not(this isn’t a key result area and I am sure it will be while before people want to advertise and pay reasonable money)
3. The site must be secure and fast
Users will be able
• User will search for results from the whole African content and as well from a selected country
• User will be able to submit site to the site and enter for which country it applies site submission will be include the basic, title,keywords etc
• Other pages contact us, feedback
• User will be able to see top searches for Africa and country, which can be edited from the admin
I would have liked a free multistep site creation tool so that user can have a profile/website type presence that they can upload their products and services and images but this will depend on weather it can be done easily and fast.
Admin will be able to
• Authorize and edit submitted sites for display in results
• See searched words
• Edit list of searched words as they will be seen by the public. These words must be links, which when clicked, a search will yield results like they have been searched
• Africa news, news feeds from Africa wide,
• The currency exchange rate and weather. Will display rates against the us dollar of the local country, I am happy to leave this to the designer and their imagination on where it is to be located. If its complicated don’t bother
• I need a way to add a block of links facebook, twitter, yahoo. These have become standard links on most websites, they are normally about 10,
• I will need a script ” make this page your home page feature”
• I will need a script ” send a link to a friend”
• More link dispersal means will be appreciated
New ideas. I am welcome to new ideas as long as it does not affect the time it takes to complete.
• All work is to be divided into tasks. Upon completion of a task, a payment will be sent (paymemt by paypal)
• I will need a schedule of work so that I know when payment is to be expected.
• All work is to be uploaded on my server at every development stage agrees
