Looking for Co-Founders (and Vendors)
I'm a long time Data Engineer and Crawling expert by trade who's amassed a massive amount of data over the last few years in the area of products and pricing (2.3 billion Amazon products with about 3 years of pricing history for at least 16 million of them) as well as real estate (Limited data but on every Property in the US) along with Business and Social data I've gathered over the years.
I've also got a pretty extensive background in SEO and understand the rules of sitemap indexing and tracking in the millions of pages in order to successfully grow organic traffic at scale. My business goals are to create massively large network of sites with all of this data and little to no client side functionality at first but that attract Google traffic (and thus ad revenue and or affiliate purchasing) in order to generate steady enough revenue at first.
I've built API's and web UI's for most of this kind of stuff for most of my career before but I'm looking for someone willing to go down the Static Site Generator (SSG) rabbit whole with me (Jekyll or Hugo) and can help focus on the User Experience and Displaying of all of this data while I focus on updating and generating new data channels. This is not an easy road to travel as it requires a lot of thinking and pre-processing ahead of time so changes to UX can be an expensive endeavor at this scale but the cost benefits are incredible long term.
I'm not against also having someone non technical reach out but my primary goal here is revenue generation primarily from ads so anyone with connections or a background in the ad sales business is welcome as well. The idea is that with each new massively data heavy site launches we can pay attention to the ones doing well and then start adding client side features to grow and increase user time on site etc. I also welcome criticism of the approach, I know a few hedge funds that do bits and pieces of this sort of stuff but no one doing it at the scale I want to get to. Let me know if anyone is interested.
