What is Dew-NewPHPLinks?
Why should Google have all the fun? You can essentially create a search engine—a link directory—by using Dew-NewPHPLinks.
Directories for Anyone
Directory software is simply an open source web site which acts as a directory. Dew-NewPHPLinks is one such piece of software. It enables you to control and modify this directory in a way that suits your needs and that people can come to this website and add their site to the directory web site. That page gives you a list of websites related to the topic you are looking for, providing the user the value they are looking for. The directory is of course dynamic, meaning it collects information that comes from the users and processes them into the index that is presented.
The very nature of user-generated structure means that maintaining this directory type of web site is a low maintenance affair. Again, it is users that are creating the links, and many come to the site just to get those backlinks, so it may take a bit of policing to make sure things don’t get out of hand, but it’s a powerful, even fun kind of project that has a value in the power of backlinks.
SEO and Backlinks
Backlinks help major search engines like Yahoo and Google rank websites and the more relevant the sites one link is associated with, the more weight is placed on the value of that certain link. Quantity of links is another factor as well. This is one of the tenets of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and is one of the most sought after optimization techniques employed in the practice. The result can be higher placement on these search engines, but as the industry well knows, the giants like Google are constantly changing their algorithms to accentuate better quality of their index.
Thus, there has been an evolution towards minimizing the effect of backlinks, but it’s still a popular and fairly easy to use strategy.
One of the neatest features of Dew-NewPHPLinks is the ability to integrate reciprocal links. That means you can verify that two web sites are linking to each other. This way when a party submits a link, they can be sure that they are receiving a corresponding link back, which is much more valuable to the search engine algorithm. It allows a site admin to deny a link to a site that hasn’t reciprocated.
Dew-NewPHPLinks is open source software and was first developed and was used as PHPLinks. From there the author of the application made some changes and then released it as NewPHPLinks. Dewed L. was the author of a new release, thus this software was called Dew NewPHPLinks. Just to review, what started out as PHPLinks became NewPHPLinks, and then evolved to Dew-NewPHPLinks. Regardless of the name, the main function remains the same. Dew-NewPHPLinks is software created to help you build a link directory. A better name for it may be a Web directory.
The phrase "link directory" can have two meanings. A link directory can be like a link network in which a group of websites all link to each other to boost their rankings in the search engines. This is, by most Internet users, and by search engines, frowned upon, and considered an unethical practice as it's trying to "game" the way search engines work.
But a link directory, or Web directory, can also be similar to the Yellow Pages, helping you find websites listed in specific categories. For example, you could search a Web directory by the main category of "health and medical", then by the subcategory "birds," then by the further subcategory "diseases." If you were to search "health and medical" just for "diseases," you'd get much more information than you really need.
By drilling down into specific categories, you narrow your results. So instead of a search engine returning millions of results, and your having to perform multiple searches to get the search terms just right to find what you need, you can "look up" the category you need, and then search within that category.
Dew-NewPHPLinks is open source, and you'll need a MySQL database to run it. Check your hosting provider's features to ensure compatibility.
