Automated Link Exchange
This should be a simple and fun project for someone who knows
what he/she doing.
Here's what the script will do:
1.) Potential link partner fills out form on our site.
2.) The script generates a piece of code which the link partner
must place on their website.
3.) Once the code is placed on the link partner's site, the link
partner logs into my system and inputs the url to where the code
is placed on the site.
4.) The script crawls the site, makes sure the code is actually
there. Once the code is verified, the link partner is placed
in our directory.
5.) The code on the partner's site displays a listing of all
link partners in the system.
What happens over time is, more people input their linking
information into our system, which in turns takes that info and
creates a linking directory out of it. The directory is sydicated
on each linking partner's webpages.
The script will also generate a referral link for the link partner.
If the link partner generates another link partner for us, they will
receive credits which help to push their link placement closer to
the top of the link directory.
Another feature allows the link partner to input up to 10 different
descriptions for their site so that those descriptions are rotated
in each link directory.
The link partner can also disable their link on another partner's
link directory and/or disable certain links on the link directory
located on their own page.
We will need an admin module which shows me all linking parters,
verified or unverified and allows me to email them individually
and in mass.
Allow me to set the number of listings per directory page.
The script will also automatically check members links at certain
intervals which I can set. If those link partners have taken the
directory off their site, an email will be sent to them to remind
them to place the directory back on. It will check again a few
days later and if the directory is still missing, their site will
be suspended and taken off the directory listing.
Also checks link sites for the "nofollow or noindex robot" tag.
The concept is similar to the one at [url removed, login to view]
We're looking for a long term programmer to continue writing scripts
for us so if you're selected, if we like your work we'll have many
more projects for you.
We will need to have access to the programmer(s) via instant messaging:
Either AOL, Yahoo or MSN throughout the project.
Project completion date, no longer than 2 weeks.
Again, this program should be a fun and simple project for someone who
knows what he/she is doing.
