I am in the market for a website that will enable users to enter a string of data (just a few words) and the result, will be all related data. The "reated" data, will be determined by users/visitors to the website. They will be able to rank how accurate the relationship is between the "compared" sets of data.
Visitors will also be able to populate the database, with new data. Example... they will enter "Pepsi Cola" and then also state the relationship to another record in the database (or enter a new record) for example "Coca Cola", thus creating a relationship in the database between the two. Any given record in the database can have a "relationship" with more than one other record. So for example, if someone types in "Coca Cola" and hits "Find results" the database can return records from teh database like "Pepsi Cola" and "Coke Zero" etc.
The website will of course be attractive, clean cut, and will have many additional features. Recommendations (or relationsihp between records in the database) will be entered by users of teh site. Users will have to register, and the records in the database they add/create, will store their use name, so later on, anyone can view any otehr users recommendations or additions to the database.
The website will also be accessible via mobile phones (and the database population process will also be possible via the mobile version).
Users to the sitew will have the ability to contact other users.
The related results in the database, after a search is performed, will be linked to the availability of those items in the database, on sites like Amazon, and others (affiliate marketing).
The records within the database, will also serve as keywords or tags (I'm not familiar with the right terminology here) for Search Engine Optimization. If people Google some of the content that's already in the database, I will expect my site to be picked up by Google, or the major engines.
Search Engine Optimization will be part of this project as well. When the project is finished, I expect to be able to find the site, using related content searches on Google, or other major search engines.
I will explain further details to the winning bidder.
I have experience here on ScriptLance, so I know that 80% of the bids received will be generic, cut and paste resumes, sent- without the bidding team having even read much of the project description. I will not consider such bids.
If you want your bid to be considered, please actually show me that you've read the project description, and have some understanding of what I'm after. Pasting a canned, standard, "resume" won't interest me (again... every project I post here, within a few hours, I'll get 30 nearly identical emails starting with "We've read your project requiements, understand them, and are ready to begin. Please see our work below...".
Take a moment, write a few lines, show me you actually understand what I'm talking about, and I'll seriously consider your bid.
The website, database, and all content, will be created by the winning bidder. The project will be considered complete, only after the site is live, online, and fully/completely operational. I've already purchased a domain name for this project, but... that's the easy part.
One other thing... I am VERY specific about one thing: I want the database on this website to run fast (if things go well, the number of items/records in the database will be as large as several hundred thousand... or more). The website has to be created in a format that can handle very large amounts of data.
Furthermore, I want the database and website created in a "scrape-proof" manner. I want the data that will be populated and created by my users to be safe, and nearly impossible to steal. I will actually "test" this, by paying someone to attempt a "scrape" of the database, once you complete the project. I will consider the project complete, once I'm convinced the database has been developed in a scrape-proof (or at least, extremely difficult to scrape) manner. I'm not interested in having a site developed for me, that anyone can later copy and scrape within a few days. :)
Any questions? Feel free to ask. I will consider all serious bids- and I don't just look at the price. I will consider your feedback, and how well I feel you understand the project. Even if your bid is not the lowest, but... your feedback is great, your talent level is strong enough to develop this, and you convince me that you understand the project, I may very well select your bid.
Thank you for your interest.
