Dollar Linking simply list your site based on how much you pay, a concept that is not unlike the algorithm used by Pay Per Click search engines; the more you pay for your keyword, the higher your site is listed.Â As bid for position directories became popular, the demand for a script that can create such site very quickly grows.
One of the first bid for position directory was A Pound A Link which was created by the team behind Loans and finance web directory, Haabaa..Â The script has now be packaged as a complete bid for placement web directory solution, its now made available to web directory builder as Link Bid Script.
Link Bid Script was created using PHP scripting language, with popular open source database, MySQL as the back end. This makes the LBS a light but fast script to install and use.
One of the features that that distinguished Link Bid Script from other PHP based bidding directory script is that it combined the classic link bid script alphabetic listing with web directory style category listing, giving directory owner and directory users the best of both worlds
The alphabetic listing make search by alphabets easy and the web directory style categories makes links listed on the bid for position directory more search engine friend.
