Need a web search for blogs, Yahoo style listings, with the ability of bloggers to add their blog URL, category and description to the directory via web.
Searchers on the site will be able to find blogs by search box or directory listing links
Site will have categories for topics -- all listings MUST BE BLOGS. No links/listings can be websites for non-blogs.
Site will have an ADD BLOG URL function that adds the URL to the site bot for indexing
Bloggers who submit and want express inclusion on the site directory can pay a small fee so we will have a payment processing form (we already have payment cart but need the upgrade function for submitters).
Site will have its own bot to retrieve and maintain an index of blogs in each category (we are open to using other options here such as meta search)
Site will have its own search engine to find a blog via keyword(s)
Site will have a Blog of the Day box where Admin can publish a chosen blog excerpt and link to that blog
Site will show 'Most Popular Blog' searches
Will show 'Newest Blogs'
Site will show 'Blog Buzz' which shows most popular blog search terms being entered and rank terms for each category
Site must be RSS enabled so it can be syndicated via blogs
We will provide design draft for GUI and more details
Coders must be experienced with XML and RSS
Site will have Admin Panel for managing listings, users, categories, images, text for static pages, security log IP address log, page views
