I am looking for someone to do data entry of businesses for a yellow pages directory that we are creating. The data needs to be compiled from five (5) websites. I will provide the URL reference pages to the winning bidder. The job requires getting all the data, both US and International businesses from these sites. The data is to be compiled in Excel format. I already have an Excel file set up which I will provide that has the appropriate labeled fields that need to be filled in. You will be required to edit out all repeated businesses and arrange them in a fashion so that we can see which site/companies overlap. The excel sheet we have will easily demonstrate this format.
There are a number of fields (first name, last name, phone, email, fax, url, etc) that need to be collected and entered. You may do this by hand or use a site scraper if you have one that you can leverage for the project. It is up to you how you get the information into the proper format in Excel.
None of the sites require a username or password to enter.
All the sites I will give you the URL to will be able to provide you with the required information, however some clicking/navigating around will be required from the URL I provide because the data may be divided by state or country.
The basic premise of the project is as follows: I am looking to collect information on businesses. Each business has a number of attributes that I will want to be collected (name, full address, phone number, email address, website URL). The business may have extra information on one site that it doesn’t have on another site so I will want you to add/append information to the Excel file as necessary for each business from the various URLs to make sure I have the most complete listing for each record once the data collection is completed.
Please only bid if you have experience with projects like this in the past. I look forward to receiving your bids.
