Our client has a website that sells sprinkler systems for watering lawns. They have many products and the site is built in Magento. They have a live site and a half built new site. Our client is hiring us to complete the job.
It may be necessary to completely start over because the previous developers did a bad job building the new site. The new development company went out of business and abandoned the project. You will be helping us complete the project.
~Carve and code our website design psds to Magento (we have internal designers to create the psds)
~Migrate product data and site content from the live site to the new site (product data includes features, specification, manuals, etc). Several hundred products.
~Migrate supporting content including pdf manuals, FAQ, Articles
~Integrate the find distributor feature (includes Google map)
~Set up or reconfigure the current CDN
~Set up breadcrumbs
~Set up blog (Probably wordpress integration)
~Magento plugins that you recommend
~Possibly, custom design a better checkout process and not use Magento's default checkout (do you have experience with customized Magento checkouts?)
~Upgrade to latest version of Magento
~SEO friendly Urls based on our instructions
~Programmatically deploy title tags, meta descriptions based on template we provide
~Set up Canonical tags
~Set up Schema.org tags
~Configure robots.txt file based on our recommendations
~Configure 301 redirects based on our instructions
~Set up noindex/nofollow on pages we indicate (such as the search results page)
~Ensure that only one url exists for each logical page (i.e. if uses takes a different path through the hierarchy to a page the final url will always be the same)
~Pages that allow sorting or filtering must not generate different urls. Or if they do, then canonical tags must be deployed to mitigate duplicate content issues.
Contact me for the site's domain and current dev version of the site so you can review and ask questions before you provide an estimate.
We will ask you for references of companies we can contact that you have built Magento sites for.
We prefer working with:
~ A team, not an individual
~ Developers based in Ukraine, Russia, Europe, USA
