I am looking to have a lawyer directory built out. Similar to [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view], lawyers.com.
I have a database of 1 million lawyers I would like imported into directorypress for wordpress. I would like the theme to be re-skinned to a more professional look. At least as nice as [url removed, login to view]
key functions will be search/browse by location or search by law specialty. There will be 50 states, roughly 50 cities/counties per state and up to 50 practice areas per city. 50x50x50=~125,000 categories. The database I give you will dictate the exact categories. Directorypress is already set up for all of this. It will just need to be tweaked and modified so that its all presentable and professional looking. And the mysql must be fast!
Each listing will have its own page within the categories. The end result will be [url removed, login to view] or so pages (category pages + lawyer pages) spidered and indexed in google.
The website link to each law firm should be disabled until the client pays to ENHANCE the listing. Just like all the big directories do like [url removed, login to view],wellness.com.. in addition to all the legal directories.
These are the basics... please look at directorypress and familiarize yourself with it. Also look closely at my example sites I have given.
The key in this project will be the inherent SEO the directory will bring from the url and title structures. For instance:
cat title-"Criminal defense Attorneys in Scottsdale (AZ) Arizona | site name dot org"
listing title-"John Doe Law Firm | site name do org"
The difference between this directory and all the rest that are out there will be the SEO, and which keywords we go after. Everyones site structures are different therefore different keywords will be picked up and ranked.
If you have experience with this type of project that will be a big bonus. Please do not bid with generic copy and paste responses, you will be ignored if you do. I want to see examples of your work! It must be top notch design and function. I am a developer myself, I do not have time to start this project which is why I am putting it up for bid.
I can give more details via message board
Thank you for looking!!!
