    I have an idea for an SEO app I'm trying to get built. Since I'm not a programmer I have no idea where to even begin.

    In general people would input data, the app would go to a bunch of different websites to validate and check data and return the output inside a pre-formatted document.

    So does something like this get built in javascript? C++, C#, Java?

    Are their websites to hire offshore project programmers? How much should I expect to pay?

    Can anybody help a brotha out and point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,

    Chuck

    Depends. Is it going to run from a website? Or is it a desktop app.

    You can always hire programmers from odesk, elance etc. Or you could hire me. Not cheap though.

    There is no set language it should be built in, either you or the programmer will make that choice.

    Setting a price or anything else isn't really possible. Don't know where the info is from, is the info on each site different? If so you will need each site setup. The amount of work determines the cost so the amount of sites would matter.

    Also you better pick a programmer that will be around even after it is complete. Sites change all the time and you will need the scraping redone.

    Who knows you might be able to get a simple ubot program done or you might need something must harder. Long term app or just want the info a few times here and there?

    Too many variable for a easy answer, find the programmer and go from there. There is no shortage of them around here for the easy ubot or the harder route.

    Sorry, I should have specified that it would run on the web.

    Javascript (with ajax) and PHP then. Would it be a one time sort of report so no need to store data. If you're going to have members and so data needs to be saved then you'd need a DB designed and implemented and also a backend admin script.
