I need a script built for reciprocal link exchanges. The script is custom and will work like this:
There will be an actual site Directory where individuals can submit their links for exchange just like [url removed, login to view] where web masters have the opportunity to request exchanges. There is a free script out there at hotscripts that does this and you are more than welcome to use it for development of this but maybe you don't want to . If it makes teh project cheaper than great use it if not than you make the choice as I would rather have something custom anyway. Now, what happens is web masters sign up and search for sites to do link echanges with. They find partners and request the exchange and the partner either accepts or declines. If they accept than the link is added to both sides.
Now, the way they will acually echange is going to be the fun part.. When a webmaster signs up for the service, they are presented with a piece of code that they copy and paste to the bottom of their site in the footer or something. That code is then on their webpage but Is Simply a designed Button that the User Chose from our site from the list of available buttoms that we provide. On that Button It Will Say something like, Link Partner Network and then when a visitor is on the site all they see is that button. When that button is pressed than the entire Category from our Directory where they are a part of "The Main Directory" will slideopen and be a list of all the links in that Category nicely laid out in columns and left justified in the box. Also, all f those links must be crawlable by the engines which Is why I suggested Ajax. Now, each time a new user to our site joins tha part of the directory than the link will display in that link box. Now, this is where i'll need a little creativeness from you. I need it to look VERY Clean even if there were 1000 links so Maybe the button will slide open the Subcategories under that directory and expand the links when each subcategory is is clicked.
Now insofar as the link directory on the main web site, if a link partner drops a link to any of the other sites they exchanged with than that link Disappears from everything. Now, the other trick is to try and throw in a sponsored area very small that will display 3 sponsored links which are Oneway direct links to the advertisers web site that end up on all of the other web sites without having to be linked back too.. The Admin shares this revenue with the Site owner and the site owner chooses which advertiser in our system they would like to have displayed on their web site through their admin ccount.
The directory will show each webmaster various things they have available ot them in their account on our site.
We would like to incorporate as many web 2.0 features as possible into the project that you think could be beneficial.
