BBB stands for Better Business Bureau. They maintain ratings and other details on local businesses. Recently their Open API access has been closed and so we are hoping to write PHP code to scrap data directly from their site.
We will provide a list of URLs in a text field or a MySQL table. The URL will look like this:
[url removed, login to view]
From this page here's a list of items we need to extract and store in MySQL:
Business Phone (primary key)
Email address (if available)
Website (if available)
Type of Entity
BBB Accreditation (e.g. A+ - look for BBB Accredited since on the page)
There will be 3 milestones as below and the corresponding payment:
1. Demonstration of fully working code on video chat or hosted on your server: 30%
2. Delivery of the actual fully functional code - 30%
3. Testing and acceptance - 40% (this would conclude the project)
Please let s know if there are any questions. The code is expected to work on our hosting environment - i can send across the output of phpinfo if needed.
