I am looking at the feasability of creating a site crawler comparison device for finding the cheapest flights available to go on my site.
At present the one we are using means we pay 50% commision to somebody else. Sometimes it is offline, and their stats are dubious!
Can you create a trawl engine that will update daily and search all the major travel sites, last minute,expedia,travelzoo etc, etc and find the best deals/prices on flights / holidays and hotels (hotels in one destination only).
The front end solution is:
A search box iframe hosted and displayed within my site,
when visitor then does search for either flights or hotel, date, one-way / return etc, duration, number of passengers etc
pop up info box while it searches,
then new window with results with prices and site link with my affiliate code so i generate income from sales.
It must be rock-solid with no errors.
I will do the design and the css on the pages, to incorporate with the back end
I can create the affiliate accounts to the sites, or whatever is necessary to make it work..
Experienced programmers only please bid, do not bid if you have no feedback or experience in this area. Mention the word crawler in your bid so i know you actually read this brief.
More development work (facebook apps etc) coming up so am looking at building long term relationship with developer.
