I've been developing my own websites for a while, earning money by selling virtual items within games. Recetly I just got hired as a developer for the first time.
I've making minigames for them, and I've already agreed on a $50/game flat rate with them. This is fine.
However we're also looking at having me re-code their HTML to not make use of bulky frameworks (their site currently takes almost 30 seconds on the first load!). The trouble is, I have absolutely no idea what to charge for this work. Can anyone give me a general idea of what is normal for a web developer to charge, and in what unit? Is it done by page, per hour, or what?
