Project Description

I need a data miner / web developer / web designer / internet marketer for a price comparison website with user ratings and a forum.

Data Mining / Screen Scraping

The website must scrape approximately 25 websites for the price of their products once every 24 hours. So you can get an idea of the style of search and amount of information to be retrieved from each website, it is the equivalent of downloading the prices for every flight for the next 6 months on an airline website (this project is NOT for the airline industry). The database only need be updated once every 24 hours.

Currencies

The scraped data will be in up to 4 currencies. When listed on the my website it must be converted into the chosen currency (one of those 4), and listed next to the original currency.

Languages

The website must be in English but it must be capable of being in other languages.

Ratings

I need people to be able to rate the products. No reviews, just a simple list of 5 questions which can be rated 1-5 stars. This total rating should then be reflected on the product when it comes up on a price comparison enquiry.

Directory

It must have a directory of about 50 companies and their details.

Forum

It must have a forum for people of this particular consumer community to discuss issues relating to it.

Marketing

I need to incorporate Google Adsense into the website. I would also like someone who can find me any existing affiliate marketing deals from any of the relevant companies.

MOST IMPORTANTLY IT MUST BE CLEAN, CLEAR, FAST, SECURE & EASY TO USE. NO SPAGHETTI CODE.

If all goes well, once up and running there will be plenty of opportunity for further development on this website.
