You are required to do php/mysql programming, some css design work and some seo work for this project (making exact clone of software download site). Site should have software catalog with search and PAD file submission form. Also site should have link exchange (Site URL, title, description, category, Backward URL page addresses) and contact us forms.
Integration with [url removed, login to view] and [url removed, login to view] is the must. I will provide you with archive of PAD files to upload into database.
Site requirements - div/css design, no tables, seo optimized document structure.
Code requirements - php(4/5 compatible), mysql, smarty templates, seo optimized urls
Step 1 (approx. 7 days) -- I would like to get from you, review and discuss database schema and basic code functionality.
After that I will deposit 10% of bid on escrow. While designing schema, you should have in mind, that site will be multilingual in the future, but multiple language support should not programmed yet.
Step 2 (no more than 3 weeks) -- I would like to see basic working prototype. After that I will confirm previous payment and put deposit 40% of bid to escrow and ask you to provide me access to CVS/SVN -- I would like to see your code progress and review it periodically. What I wish to have after step 2 -- working site with basic css design -- just to have necessary layout. No graphical work is necessary. Site should use SMARTY for templateing.
Step 3 (4-6 weeks) -- After successful completion of step 2 I will confirm deposited 40% and wish software to be transferred and installed on my site. I require you to do seo work and place at least 200 incoming links to my site.
They should be 100% white catalogs/sites, no spam/black seo allowed! You should provide me list of sites you placed the links. I will check sites -- they should not banned in google. Links should be permanent -- thus no placement on paid slink exchange sites. After review I will place remaining 50% on escrow. I will confirm it as soon as at least 15 incoming links will appear in google/yahoo search.
While bidding please drop me links to your works, and some piece (1-2 pages, not more) of your php code -- which you think is the best code you have written.
All payments will be done via GAF.
If you will finish this project withing good time range and quality -- I have more work on this project for you -- seo and programming.
