We need someone who can Google company names and capture the company's URL.
We'll supply you with a list of 1,000 company names in an Excel spreadsheet. All the businesses are in the U.S. or Canada. You need to search each name (example: "Upper Canada College"), find the correct URL (example www.ucc.on.ca), and then copy the URL to the spreadsheet.
You'll return the spreadsheet with as many URLs filled-in as possible.
This work cannot be automated. As the sample file shows, the company name is inconsistently presented, is sometimes short-formed, and may contain extra information. We need a person to read, interpret and resolve each name individually. Please do not bid or attempt this work based on an automated approach. You will fail our quality control tests and your work will not be accepted or paid for.
This will be ongoing work for someone who does a good job for us at a fair price.
It's important that you can read and write well in English and that you do quality work.
Please bid a price based on a single file of 1,000 companies. If you do a good job and want more files, we have several we need done. Include with your bid an estimate of how many hours you expect it will take to complete 1,000 entries.
See the attached Excel file for an example of what we'll send you. You job it to fill-in the Company URL column.
