The metasearch engine should be developed in Python, PHP, Ruby on Rails, Ajax or another languages or combination of these languages.
We are looking at creating a meta search engine / price comparison tool (and perhaps in the future contract term comparison aswel) for insurance products. More specifically, it searches through different other comparison or search engines on the internet (e.g. [url removed, login to view] or [url removed, login to view]). In addition this system should also connect with the api of datafeedr and include the results and displays the best results for our visitors.. It also must allow us to ad new search engines as they become available, if possible.
It probably goes with out saying that one of the the highest priority will be that all searches are legal on the site meaning that we strictly adhere to the terms and conditions of the search engines that we use.
We would like to start small with one specifically relatively simple product, car insurance and 3 search enginge/comparison tools. For every product moving onwards (and adding other search engines) would have its own budget.
