Site Issues

Recently i realized the site has some bugs.
1. the session storage is shared with other sites as it is on a shared server and because of that the users sometimes jumped into other users account. This is a major issue but i have fixed that by adding an extra security layer. Now if the session id changed you are automatic logged out. Please report here if this has been fixed.

2. the second problem i have noticed is that sometimes the credits don't update. Please give me more feedback on this issue so i can understand what happens.

3. on the new template we have some missing text fields short_description. If you can help me here with writing a short description for each product i would appreciate it.
This is important because the new users don't understand what they have to do and leave the site. And if that happens we loose a potential vote exchange or link exchange partner.

I know that i shoud fix all the problems and not to ask for your help but this is an free project and i don't have a lot of time to work on it.


I would apreciate your help.

Best Regards,
Radu.

PS: I will also migrate the site from php4 to php5 this week when i have time and will check for the bugs reported here.

I'm searching for a couple of beta testers to help me find bugs before it goes online.
The database it's linked with the main site so if you work from here your credits and links will be counted.

Thanks for our help.

Sorry for not working on this project in the last 2 weeks but i was very busy with my day job. I'm working on a project for one of my clients( I'm a freelancer) and this will take me 2 more weeks to finish. After that I'll start working again on this community. In the mean time if you have any suggestions on how to improve the site please write me.

Day 31 - First month over

There is 1 month since i started working on this project and i can say i'm happy with the results.
5 articles from our network got popular on digg. I can't say it's because of the fav exchange or the articles war realy good. Also 12 articles have been on the first page of reddit for at least 2 hours. Also we got some traffic from stumbleupon.
1rstlink stats:
- we manage to get 540 users so far from wich about 100 are active users at least every 2 days.
- people started linking to us
- we got on hot communities on mybloglog

I hope each one of you is happy with the results and lets hope till next month will do better.





Best Regards,
Radu.

Day 26 - New link exchange tool for blogger

This is a new idea i had during last days but from what i know it only works on blogger blogs. Blogger has an widget to add a rss feed to your blog. So what i was thinking is:
1. You insert your blog in the system
2. The system will get last 5 posts from your blog
3. The system will generate a rss feed related to your blog content
4. You insert the feed in your blog using blogger feed widget

In this way you will have your last 5 posts links on a lot of pages of other blogs with similar content.
The system will take care of finding other blogs related to your blog.
So what happens is:
- Your blog will link to 5 blogs (1 per line) from each page of your blog
- Your blog will be linked from 5 other blogs in the system

The cool thing about this is that you will not get only 5 links to your blog becouse google does not crawl sites all at once and becouse of this each page in google index will have 5 different links.

Please tell me what you think and if you want to participate on this.

This is very usefull for new blogs to get indexed by search engines fast. And for old blogs to get latest posts more value in search engines

Best Regards,
Radu.
