I need a complete clone of the [url removed, login to view] website, including all features and functionality. It is the bidders responsibility to completely review the LinkMarket site and familiarize themselves with all free member, paid member, and admin features and functionality.
DO NOT BID if you have not done your homework.
Project includes complete web design of new site, logo design, all backend database work, all script design, complete email scripts, form handling, customer service interface, shopping cart for link exchange, ecommerce setup for payment (Paypal plus merchant account), membership area, all web pages (modified from original to clone version), import of my links database (URL, anchor text, webmaster name, webmaster email, description), and installation onto dedicated server.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT BID if you are not familiar with everything that needs to be done and are not completely capable of handling everything.
This project is for a complete turnkey version of LinkMarket with web design and text modified sufficiently to avoid any copyright infringement liability. The bid is for the site to be created, installed, 100% operational, and include ongoing support.
The design should be clean and crisp with fast loading pages and minimal graphics.
I am open to suggestions for speed, form, and functionality enhancements to the orginal site model being cloned.
So as not to limit future growth, system must be capable of supporting a database of 10,000,000 members with room for multiple new data fields to be added as needed.
Site design should include placement of Google AdSense and other advertising/affiliate offers within results pages. A MovableType blog installation should be included along with XML feed from blog.
Free members features and functionality will differ greatly from those provided to paid members.
Must include multiple sort functions for results within a category - sort by PR, Alexa rank, date joined, links exchanged, links requested, member status, etc.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I have additional enhancements planned and custom CGI script work needed that is not part of this project bid, but will also be awarded to the winning bidder for a reasonable incremental price (fixed amount, not hourly rate).
I need this to work extremely fast like [url removed, login to view] In fact, I would prefer a faster, more robust solution with increased searchability and faster link exchanges. All links exchanged would need to be verified at point of link exchange creation.
Ongoing link monitoring would be a nice enhancement to include in your bid. Similarly, the ability to modify/update existing link exchange information to reflect any changes would also be a plus.
Other enhancements could include the ability to store/utilize multiple versions of link anchor text and descriptions for each website in paid membership version.
Possible multiple levels within paid membership would also be a huge plus. Also, higher levels of paid membership could have multiple links to their interior pages within their account, thus allowing them to direct PageRank to more than just their index page. That might be a good place for a "link rotator" script that varies the link being exchanged, the anchor text, and the description.
There will be many more features added down the road. Please feel free to let me know how you will approach this project and if you have other good ideas for this website.
I am looking for a partner on this project, not the cheapest price.
I want cheapest and best!
Only bid if you have a clear idea of what I want AND how to accomplish it. DO NOT just give me a generic company statement when you send in your bid. I want details and examples of successful jobs involving multiple aspects of this type of turnkey site.
Just so I am sure all you have read all this, when you bid please type the words "link site proposal" at the start of your response.
