This is a search engine designed for a local community of 30,000 people, that will promote local businesses.
This search engine will produce search results in four sections, and it will have the look and feel of regular google search results.
1&2. Three adchoice results at the top of the page, and several Adchoice results on the right side
3. Zero to three Jquery results that come from a curated directory.
4. Google CSE results, using boost/filter to promote local search results.
I will supply the data in excel for a directory, which will include the following fields: Contact Name, Business Name, business address, business phone, business website address, business categories, business keywords, business description, Business logo, special offers, and other information about the business. You will create the directory with an alphabetical listing, and also a separate page for each store and unique url, and rules for the url string. The design for the page will be supplied to you, as well as the URL string. The administrator will have the functionality to add/edit a business listing
The search results will pull from the store website (if available), or from the information in the form.

You will submit the entire code base back to me. Feel free to ask me questions. Part of my decision will be based on the quality of your presentation, and communication skills, and completeness of your explication of how you plan to put it together.
