Consulting & Implementation of Vertical Search Engine Looking for a search engine guru to consult with me and implement a mutually agreed upon search engine for an upcoming project. You must be an expert in search engines, open-source applications, scaleable web hosting and technical specifications. A successful project will entail a full technical specification of what I want (thru phone consulting or email), procurement and installation of this software on my server upon recommendation of server architecture, installation of front-end that will be designed elsewhere (not your responsibility to design, just implement), and everything to be fully functioning and working so that internet users can use the search engine. The search engine should index a list of websites to be provided with the ability to add more sites over time. Search engine should include as many features from this list as possible: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] I would ideally like to work with an open source application to keep costs low such as Lucene, Ferret, or others. I am looking to an expert to make a recommendation and to implement. The job isn’t too large for anyone who is an expert in this field. It can be done within 1-2 days as installation and configuration of this software isn’t rocketscience. Please be as detailed as possible within your quotes/questions and I will be available to answer them. I am located in New York, NY and have phone, email and IM to communicate. Looking forward to be up and running soon.
