FIRST NOTE: If you are submitting a bid, the first line of your bid MUST READ "I READ IT". If not we will automatically mass delete it. I'm only interested in getting bids from people who have read what I write. OK, We currently have a site that is hosted on Verio webserver using Apache. We're looking for someone who has proven that they can get us into the top 10 results at [url removed, login to view] and a few other search engines. We currently use adwords and froogle however we'd like to appear more in regular search results too. We can / will insert html pages, etc. as necessary on our server. No access will be given to the server directly. Only bid if you have PROVEN results doing this in the past.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

Here is some more info:
We can't give the site yet, not until bid is accepted.
It is made up almost entirely of PHP pages, but I don't mind adding in html pages as required. If there is a way to add meta tags etc. to the PHP that may work too.
The site is a sales site for used laptop computers, laptop accessories, ac adapters for laptops, etc. They sell dell, hp, compaq, ibm, sony, toshiba laptops and adapters.
Of course coming up in top 10 with just Toshiba or just IBM would be difficult, we are expecting to appear with more specific searches, such as:
Compaq Armada Laptop
Compaq M700 AC Adapter
75UYF - part number for an dell ac adapter
Toshiba Tecra 9000
We're looking for a total of about 20 phrases, most all are 2 or 3 words, some are only 1 but are part numbers.
