We are looking to retain the services of an experienced [url removed, login to view] are in need of 3 separate software programs developed specifically for our business. Successful completion of this first project and an on time delivery will be enough for us to award the other two projects to the candidate.
We are looking for a programmer that can develop a stand alone harvestor program to scrape Google. The data obtained will be presented in a CSV format and contain these fields (see attached example)
Now the key to this program will be the ability to source specific information that is city and state/province specific in the US and Canada.
The essential part of this program, beyond the basic company information, is the ability to find verified and unverified Google Local (Places) listing information. We also need to know the ranking for that specific Company places listing on the day the data is harvested.
So the program will allow us to designate multiple cites and states and verticals (aka - dentists, lawyers, plumbers, hair salons etc.) and once the criteria is in the system will collect data from Google for all business who, at our discretion, are either a verified listing of non verified.
Critical data is this; Business category, business name, city, state/province, telephone number, Google Places status (verified or unverified), placement, Google Maps URL, email (if possible) and all other information on he attached spreadsheet. ( You will see in the attached example that "N" is an unverified Google Places listing and "Y" is verified.)
We are looking to start this project as soon as possible. We will need complete costs and timeline for completion.
Thank you and Good Luck!
