    I want a number of web developer to arrange content rich websites at rock bottom prices.

    Minimum number of websites to each order is 30

    Total number to develop 5000

    Price to be paid...negotiable on skill but no more than 100 UK pounds

    Must have ability to program the site with mysql for news articles to be updated regularly.

    Subject range from mortgage, property, beauty, fashion, jewellery, cosmetics. Sites can be forum driven, news driven..etc...

    Variety of sites is the key. My existing designer can produce no more than 30 a month so plenty of potential.

    Regards
    Lee Grandin

    IMO - Think you sould look here: http://www.scriptlance.com

    You may be able to find a eastern european or indian based designer, as I doubt many here would be interested at the prices your quoting.

    It maybe wiser to spend more on less, if your web developer produced lml.co.uk then time skills money spent etc seems false economy

    30 websites for 100 pounds

    £3.30 per website - content rich - original designs.

    Would you like original content with that sir!

    English message board . . . er!

    would you like me to shin up the chimney while I'm at it Sir? Maybe clean the chamberpots as well?

    Even just a cosmetic change to an opensource CMS would take enough time to make this unviable.

    One way to do this, is one server, one database, and one script for a large number of websites with different content being served by the script depending on which domain the request comes from.

    Then the price/site could well come down to the region being aimed at here, though perhaps with a larger initial cost in the specification / design.

    Getting some guy in India to knock out websites for 3 quid a pop could result in alot of copywrite content being infringed. No one is going to create original content for that price.

    Best to script somthing.

    I may have misunderstood, and you are paying £100 per website.

    If so, I apologise.

    It may be useful to let us know what sort of content you have, (in what format, text, images, are images optimised and sized, how is it updated, is it rss, is it duplicated across sites and how much of it).

    In terms of categories, then the design of the template for the category is a significant part of the proposal and it would be useful to let us know what number of categories you had in mind per say 30 sites.

    I assume you already have hosting, is it linux or windows.

    Things like that . . .

    clarification

    £100 per a site maximum. All sites have to look different. The web developer in india hasn't worked on lml.co.uk.......its not changed for 5 years.

    www.ghdtw.co.uk is one of his sites that I asked him to do.

    Nice looking site but its not exactly content rich, and there is no SEO so your not going to pick up many visitors.

    I could'nt find a link back to the homepage from the other pages, or am i being blind?

    Out of interest how much did that site cost you?

    Given the 'dryness' of static sites and considering the criteria you are looking at, I'd agree with MissMash that a DB driven system could be worth consideration...

    Initial entry cost may be higher but, in the long-run, much cheaper... The obvious +ve is it gives you the opportuntiy to create unique user experiences, delivering fresh content on every visit...

    With your 5000 sites, an entire 'dynamic' user exp. could be produced which, unknown to the visitor, would keep them 'within your network'... No sale on one site, possible sale via another...

    search optimisation

    would such a approach be good or bad for search engine optimisation?

    As I said I am looking for sales pitches for the development of 30 sites (subject to your experience and proof of good work) @ £100 a time.

    If the 30 sites are delivered well and create good search engine optimisation then you get another 30.....on and on

    Furthermore, we have a database of over 40000 investor who we will be asking to attend seminar on virtual property developing....if you show me you are good we will have a referral system for these as well

    These things are still valid questions grandin. I think your request is a reasonable one and these answers will help determine where the effort goes for the money - making the designs really really different or producing a more automated system.
