Hi everyone i am new to geeks.
I have an idea that i think could drive a search engine above yahoo/bling into second place behind google.The problem is i am not savvy enough to build a search engine and need help and a rough idea of costs time etc.

If its possible and affordable i would be happy to have partners in this.Let me know what you think.cheer bellb0

If you aren't savvy enough to build a search engine that can only be beaten by Google, how do you plan to market it into second place? You want a geek to build you a search engine and need a rough idea of costs? If you are soliciting investors, be aware that anyone that can build a search engine, will, with or without your help. Good luck with this.

I agree with Johanna here, but of course it is possible to attract people for your project.
You certainly need a programmer/developer for your project to work,also a well-determined plan/setup of what exactly needs to be done.

I would take a look at these sites:
