I need an excellent coder to work with the revamp of an old website.
I will need to convert and improve the database that is still in .txt, to mysql.
The important part here is that there are a lot of existing contents that will need to migrate to the new database fields, in the new database structure.
I will need to generate RSS feeds for the site content.
The site has more than 10.000 pages indexed in google and most of site profit its generated by google visits, so, I will need to keep those pages indexed.
Every improvement on the site will need to have this in consideration.
You need to handle well this also because I will need to improve the layout too.
HOW I WORK, AND WHAT I EXPECT FROM YOU
I need you to understand english very well, and work fast.
I work with milestones.
So, we will define a few tasks and a date to implement those tasks.
At that specific date we will test it and once completed I pay you.
Then we define another set of tasks and again a date to implement them, and again, I pay you.
And etc etc.
If you are good, you will be the coder for this project from now on. The site is 7 years old and going very well so you will have a permanent source of income.
The site is very interesting and with a lot of possibilities to try many many things. A good opportunity if you really like coding.
The site has 3000 users per day and generates a decent amount of google adsense.
Once the changes are implemented it will generate, more or less, 4 times more.
I will give you, as a bonus, 50% of the new profits generated.
This is just a bonus that I will be happy to give you, in case your work is good.
I do this because it is hard to find a good coder, that is at the same time honest, and has some time available, and that does not charge too much.
HOW TO START, WHAT WILL YOU BE BIDDING ON:
Since we dont know each other the best way is to test if we get along working togheter.
So, bid to make the improvements in the database. That is to do a online page that will allow me to convert the fields in the .txt database to a new mysql database.
I AM INTERESTED, NOW WHAT:
If you are interested, please do the following: send me a private message with 3 sites that you have developed and let me know what was your work, so that I can evaluate your previous experience.
Then let me know what you charge per hour, normally.
Then let me know if you have any doubt regarding the task I want you to do.
I will answer you with the link of the site so you can see more precisely what you need to do, in order to make your bid.
ps: i do not mind escrowing the money, but do not ask to pay in advance.
And, even if I escrow, you will need to accomplish the milestones.
RESPONSABILITY, HONESTY, DEADLINES these are qualities that I cannot live or work without. If you do not value these attributes like I do, please do not bid because we would be both loosing our time.
