Project Description

I am looking for a web researcher able to visit a selected number of specialist vehicle retail websites on a regular basis – around 12 per month throughout 2013 – to record information about the numbers, prices, durations and descriptions of specific niche products on sale. This data must then be entered accurately into an excel spreadsheet for later data processing and analysis.

The majority of this work will involve visiting the sites at a scheduled date, searching for the specific products of interest and populating the data into excel. Then, uploading the spreadsheet for later analysis and reporting.

The task is ongoing throughout 2013 and would suit an experienced freelance web researcher who requires a very flexible schedule. The reporting language is English but ability to read Arabic would be a distinct advantage. The researcher could be located in any location or time zone but must have the required software, hardware and internet access.

Specifically, the tasks will include:

1. Visit the specified websites at a regular monthly interval.

2. Gather data on specific vehicles by make, model and derivative, age, price, date first listed or removed/sold, mileage, specification. Typically, the number of makes required will be limited to 10 or less, although this will cover all or target models within the make.

3. Enter the data into an excel spreadsheet with separate data entry sheets for each make and model group as provided.

4. Upload the spreadsheet workbook on a weekly basis with the latest results into a web depository.

Contractor requirements

(1) Experience in regular web research and data gathering. (2) Experience in entering data into excel. (3) Experience in uploading data on a regular basis. (4) Must have own excel software, internet access and laptop..

How to apply

In order to be considered for this position, reply describing research you have performed online (this can be on any topic).

Payment terms will be monthly after upload of data and verification.
