We have a project we would like to get done extremely quickly. This is a project that requires a lot of manual work, a smart person, and good command of the English language ??" probably a native speaker. It requires no programming skills, and only modest computer skills. Our website contains over 18,000 of pages of content to teach people how to do things. We want to make our internal site search more effective at delivering the search results users want. This is a project for someone to go through each content page and list three to five “alternative queries?? ??" other ways in which users might write their search to find the exact same page. An example can be found at the bottom of this page under “Questions Answered and Topics Addressed:?? [url removed, login to view] You will go through a list of our how-to topics, one by one, and for each one formulate 3-5 of these alternate queries that are the ways users would be most likely to phrase their search if they would be interested in these results. We will provide some research tools, and some basic rules that we have thought of to help stimulate your thinking… but we look to you to be better at this than us, and to think of stuff we might never think of. Complete instructions attached in the ZIP. Because we would like to get the project done quickly, this bid request is for 1,000 of these queries in exactly the same format as the sample, for which you will create 3-5 alternate queries each. We may select multiple coders to work in parallel. Set your bid price for 1,000 but be aware that if you do the work quickly and well, there is much more work you can take on immediately. Note there is a sample of 50 I have completed, attached, so you can see what to do, and a blank sample of 10 for you to do. It is unlikely we would hire anyone who doesn’t complete the sample of 10 as part of their bid, as we would have no idea of your capability to do this project well.
Deliverables: We will give you a text file with 1,000 ehow topics. You will return to us a text file with 3-5 alternative queries for each of those topics. Please submit your work after you complete the first 100 so we can give you feedback and improve. The deadlines are important in this project: we need people who can work on this ASAP.
use whatever you like. files can be returned as text files or as excel files.
