The project is to build a metasearch site that searches 8 B2B sites – sites like [url removed, login to view] and B2Bchinasources.com. The metaserach site should send a users search keywords to the B2B sites (where the search is run on that sites search engine) and return the results to the metasearch site. In this case the returned results do not need to be further searched or sorted because the results will be shown under headings for each B2B site. It is also proposd that this be kept simple with only a few features, like allowing the user to choose the number of results they wish to see from each B2B site.
There is very little design here. Just some basic layout of the search results pages. Whatever I’ve shown in the attached PowerPoint should be good enough for now. There will need to be discussion on what data to pull back from the sites (like product image, product title, product description, supplier name, country). I am again hoping to make this reasonable simple and not reformat the content that we do decide to pull back (if possible).
