Reposted at a higher budget!
I am looking to hire a developer/programmer to create a "meta" search engine that pulls results from Google API and Yahoo API feeds. If you do not understand what a meta search engine is please refer to this information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metasearch_engine
After the user enters their search, results are then returned, and the results are studied and then will need to be ranked by popularity based the frequency of the URL, then results will be mixed together and ranked on one page. Ads from Google’s AdSense program will also need to be shown in the search results, same font, same colors. The search engine result page, and main search page should function, and show results the same way seen in dogpile.com search engine. The search engine should be written using scripting that will allow for very high search usage (25+ per second, we will provide the needed server hardware up to 32GB ram, Dual QC CPU). Please study dogpile.com search. Understand every element of this website, how Google’s AdSense ads are shown. Only worry about the web search function, and the video search function. For video search please pull search results from youtube.com, please use API. Also, please review the API details for Google & Yahoo as we must pay for the search results:
If you have any questions please ask!
