    Will you be telling it what sites to index? Or are you going to need a crawler that can identify sites of a specific niche from the gazillions on the net? Big cost difference depending on the method.

    I agree with this. If you can collect a list of sites to index it will be extremely cheaper than building a crawler/spider to identify specific niches. If it is the former(first one), let me know and I can do this.

    Let me know if you plan to compete with Google - will give you an algorithmic support free of charge. I am sick of that search engine. :)

    Cheers.

    Yes I will be telling you which sites to crawl. About 10-15 sites in particular. Should have the option for adding zip code searches for the items, WP and a Blog.

    Also a Blog that allows customer to have accounts that will allow they to paste Paypal, 3rd party "Buy It Now" buttons and upload pics

    I wish! lol

    But no, just taking a passion into a business.

    What I am looking to build is something a little like search tempest. Let me know if you can help and a ballpark on cost and completion time. Thanks in advanced

    Tony, that's pretty easy. Shoot me a PM. This shouldn't cost much at all.
