I have some questions as to how the Price Comparison Search Engine Works. First off what languages, technical knowledge, and programming skills are necessary to create a search engine.You need someone capable of writing search spiders. You also need someone to design and administer the database. You need someone to liase with the owners of the sites being spiders. It would be unlikely to find all these skillsets in the same person.
Secondly how does the site update the information from the merchants. How do they input information about the products and pictures from the merchants?The spiders collect the data from the sites and parse it. It is then ready to be inserted into the database and crunched. The database then publishes out the comparisons to the web.
Also what other information would be necessary.A business plan that involves making money.
Throw in a sprinkling of CTR and CPC for weighting puposes and there you have it.
