X-Cart Savvy Programmer Preferred, (Java) Search Engine Optimization, Minor Coldfusion To HTML Conversions, (nearly completed,) Graphics Creation, Website Functionality Improvements, Dead Link Removal, etc.

There are primarily two major parts to this project: Improve the functionality & search results of the older (coldfusion & html) informational website, & help populate/improve the functionality & search results of the X-Cart storefront subdomain.

We are in the process of changing webhosts, (moving to Rackspace,) & are looking for some help integrating over to the new host. The existing (original) website can be found here:

The website files have already been transferred, & are located on the new server here:

[url removed, login to view]

We need the older (primarily informational) website to be cleaned up. We need to remove what little is left of the old coldfusion coding & replace it with html, excluding the old coldfusion storefront. (Most of this has already been completed. I just need someone to double-check & thoroughly search about 40-50 static pages for dead links, non-functioning code, etc. & replace it to function properly. View the source code & you'll find that much of this has already been completed.) The informational side of the website needs to remain clean/professional looking, (adding a few new images, banners, etc.) while still keeping it's highly-ranked search engine indexing on each of the individual pages. Most importantly, I need to ensure that the meta keywords remain (or preferably are improved,) so that the search engines maintain our rankings among all of the products & services that our store provides.

The old coldfusion storefront:

[url removed, login to view]

is being 100% done away with, along with many of the products there. We are replacing it with a new X-Cart storefront that is already active & functional.

[url removed, login to view]

The new X-Cart storefront is currently being populated with products. I need help populating it with roughly 50 more products, (especially with new large & updated manufacturer-sourced images) & ensuring that the meta keywords are accurate & pull high results on the search engines for each of the individual products, active manufacturers, & categories, & then linking to the X-Cart store throughout the rest of the informational bit of the BigFrog html website.

Minimum information requested per listing:

Product name, manufacturer, similar SKU’s resembling product names & manufacturers, unique & detailed descriptions, (copy/pasting from the manufacturer’s website is completely fine, just please don’t use other competitor’s unique descriptions and/or images,) high ranking meta keywords/tags, pictures, (the first image should be no larger than roughly 450x450 pixels, but any additional detail images can be up to roughly 1000x1000 pixels,) shipping weight- (if possible to locate.) I will fill in pricing information later.


Any active category links that will be used on the website, such as these:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

need to have unique product images. We'll need descriptions & meta keywords as well for those categories that don’t have already one.

The active manufacturer links, such as these:

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]

need to have similarly sized logo images. We'll need descriptions & meta keywords as well for those manufacturers that don’t have already one.

Bugs/Customizations Requested on the X-Cart Storefront:

1. After adding a new item to the shopping cart, and being prompted to login, there is a corrupted image file located over the “New Customer” banner here- [url removed, login to view]

2. When viewing products in the store, (see this example [url removed, login to view];cat=304&page=1 )

the layout should read as follows:

-Product Description (with Details & Options)

-Detailed Images

-Related Products

-Customer Feedback (with Customer Reviews)

-Recommended Products List

-Send To Friend

3. Installation & Integration of 2-4 customized modules, such as randomized featured products, "one-page checkout," "smart search," & "buy together" modules. We're still determining exactly which ones we'll use. We'll know within another few days. See the following links for examples & details:

[url removed, login to view] (Example of the randomized featured products module)

[url removed, login to view];cat=1&page=1

[url removed, login to view];cat=1&page=1

[url removed, login to view];cat=1&page=1

The webhost is being paid for additional technical support, so it shouldn't be much problem getting help from them as necessary. I've already begun much of this work. The upgrades need to be completed preferably within a few weeks. More time can be allowed if necessary so long as significant progress is being made.

Please Note: We have been in business for 20+ years. We are ultimately looking to find longterm help on projects similar to this in the future. If this project goes well & we feel good about the coding help that we receive, the winner of this project will receive preference toward projects on all 5 of our other websites & businesses in the future.
