we would like to build a business directory with WP. Structurally it will be similar to www.yellowpages.com.
The number of business entries will be quite big (> 4 mio businesses) and there will be a couple of content pages beside the basic business directory.
We’re planning to generate >1 mio visits per month with this website.
Now my questions are:
– What do you think would be the best way to create such a directory with WP?
– Do you think it’s smart to use a theme like listify? (https://themeforest.net/item/listify-wordpress-directory-theme/9602611)
– We’re thinking about using a managed hosting service like “WP Engine” since our WordPress skills (security, scaling, etc.) are quite limited. Does it make sense?
I would be glad if you as WP experts can give me some tips or suggestions if we’re on the right or wrong track or if you would do it differently,
Thanks a lot and best regards,
