Hi... This is my first project here at Freelancer.com. I presented it a couple weeks ago then ran out of time to process it. I apologize for that. I am now re-presenting it. When I first presented it I combined the 4 tasks I needed into one project. This time I will present them separately and work with a freelancer on one at a time. Here is the first task:
*OpenX Server Wrap-up: My website is built with custom coding (it doesn't use Wordpress, Joombla, etc.) My last coder set it up display ads using the OpenX server. These are custom ads for my advertisers (the ads are not served by OpenX; I'm using OpenX to serve ads that I create). I can easily set up ads on my OpenX server. But I need to tie each ad to one or more topics on my website and have the ads only display alongside articles that match the topic(s). I think this means using Source Parameter. My site covers a dozen topics. I need to have a freelancer set up these topics in OpenX so that I can assign one or more topics to each ad. Also, I would like to learn how to make ads display in more than one place on my site. (If it's easy and quick, maybe my freelancer could install one or two more locations for me.)
PS: OpenX makes it possible to do this. OpenX can create the needed code. My freelancer needs to know how to edit that code to create a way to tag each ad with one or more of my topics and then they need to know where to put it in my custom website code so that it works. I don't know where the code is on my site that controls my ads.
After this project I have several other tasks that I will need to have done. I look forward to working with the same freelancer on all of them.
My goal is to get my 4 small projects done in a week. So please bid on this first one in light of my other needs. I prefer working with one person for all of them.
I note that when I listed my first project that it had 4 tasks and I had bids of $75-200 for all 4 (and 2 days to a week). Now that I have more time to work on this and now that I've redesigned how I'm setting up the tasks -- separating out the first task so I can learn about how Freelancer works with a smaller project at first. Anyway, I'm hoping to see a bid that comes in at a fraction of the initial project. So far I'm seeing bids for this one task that are much more than the bids I saw for the 4 tasks together. (Why is that?) As I said, I hope to work with the same freelancer on all the tasks but wanted to start with one task to get acquainted. Thanks!
Hi again... Here is my website: http://outyourbackdoor.com/home_new.php. You can see the 2-ad display there. And also that my site has many topics. If this info makes you want to change your bid, please do. Thanks!
The rectangle banner ad display at the top of the homepage is NOT served by OpenX and is part of my old/previous website setup. (I'll want to remove it sometime.)
