Site Neighbors was created in 2006 to make sense of the "long tail" coined by Chris Anderson in 2003. Ann & John were sitting at Otto's pub one afternoon (we both studied social networks in grad school), and we came up with this idea and coded it. It is a nifty algorithm that creates neighbors from sites that join. Neighborhoods are based on site commonalities. How those commonalities are determined is the secret! They are dynamic (ever-changing) and can be linked to advertisements, affiliate sites, or any assortment of other linked in information that can be easily programmed to tie with the neighbors.
Site Neighbors (the algorithm) is for sale. The domain name is no longer ours, but the concept can tie in nicely with a blogger-application brand, or any group of sites from which one wishes to create dynamically connected communities. So, if you click on the right side bar, you will return to the product page here, but have no fear - the code has a lot of potential!
Contact officeDiggs for more info on how you can buy the Site Neighbors algorithm with 24-7 Exhibits or in a way that best fits your needs.

24-7 Exhibits is a robust, scalable web-based application (found at www.247exhibits.com), programmed by a nationally-known Silicon Valley firm using a Zend/PHP framework that has a fully-functional e-commerce component, e-mail notification capabilities, an application that delivers customizable, privatizable single or group-level (multiple contributor) website templates with commercially-licensed slideshows, blogs, tags and comments, and an SQL database with a 2,500+ user capacity.
officeDiggs, Inc. has several ways for your organization to benefit from our 24-7 Exhibits web-application. You may buy a generic version of the code outright or contact us to manage it for you (customized your way, of course!)
What Is 24-7 Exhibits?
24-7 Exhibits is an ideal digital venue to showcase galleries of photographs with text, tags and comments and invite discussion, reaction, evaluations, critiques, and the sharing of opinions, facts, and information about sets of images and multimedia depicting various different places, people, pets, flora, fauna, collectibles, artifacts, artwork, crafts, projects, lessons, assignments, activities, or events. The possibilities are endless; the choices are yours! You may be the sole contributor, or you may allow many others to join your community as contributors to your site. 24-7 Exhibits is the easiest way to create an exhibit online. It can be used to organize membership, categorize case studies, manage a student's portfolio, administer a teacher's lessons, display a family's history and/or recipes and/or travels, showcase pets in need of adoption, sell crafts, advertise a small business and display that business' inventory online, and/or record life-coaching sessions and help patients in counseling to journal and receive therapy via writing and imagery, etc.
The 24-7 Exhibits web-based tool automatically creates out of the box, gallery-focused websites. You may visit our sales site at www.247exhibits.com to read more about this tool. Examples of what the websites may look like that customers buy (and the variety of uses of this tool) are listed below.
Our services are available to organizations who may wish to benefit from offering their members individual websites, or offer uniform, standardized websites to clubs that belong to your association, or to teachers in your school, or use for fundraising purposes. Our business model and low cost service enables organizations with high volume to generate significant cash for supplementing their organization’s budget, in addition to connecting their members online. Social networking systems, advanced search functions, and other features may be added to our core product offered here, in addition customizing what we currently show.
The 24-7 Exhibits web-tool is robust, scalable, rigorously tested and built on a PHP/ZEND platform.
We believe in education and supporting educational organizations. If you are a student or educational organization and would like to own a generic version of the 24-7 Exhibits code complete with documentation, and capacity test results, please contact us. Click here to read server specifications and the pre-sale basic code documentation. Our goal is to help others learn about programming a website since many universities and schools do not teach programming, just theory. Since there are many things you can do with the code, and ways to embellish it further, students can benefit from not starting with a blank slate.
A generic version of 24-7 Exhibits can be created to come with revised documentation; placeholders in lieu of all 24-7 Exhibits' logos, copy and images including those in e-mail alerts and notifications; different file names, class names, and function names that do not reference 24-7 Exhibits; and will be configurable to work on other servers with file caching. The generic version of the code will use a variable domain name that can be set in the config file; will have an option to turn off the SSL required for the sales site; will come with instructions on how to insert your own PayFlowPro payment information into the site or toggle this e-commerce option off; and come with proof of testing on a different server with a different domain.
Contact Ann if you have questions about 247Exhibits.com. The 1,700+ hours of standards-compliant code is sold as a non-exclusive license unless negotiated otherwise, and will be presented as is with no representation, warranties or guarantees. Buyers will need to license the Slide Show Pro application else replace it in the code. We hope that you will share your questions with us.
We have other ideas of how organizations could take the 24-7 Exhibits ecommerce code and use it. These ideas include:
As a payment collector for any kind of recurring monthly or periodic payment where clients can pay by credit card or Paypal. Garbage collectors, magazine subscriptions, monthly fees for clubs or gyms... any organization that wants its own ecommerce engine can buy our code (very inexpensive!), code it onto your own domain and use your own PayFlow Pro account, and collect-away!
Non-Profits can have it recoded (minor changes needed), to create a grant-management tool for their grantees to submit online and track documentation without the use of paper.
Hospice or Home Health Care organizations can use it to set up their own branded "caringbridge" for patients to keep in touch with loved ones about a patient's condition.
The application can be set up like sympathytree.com for an organization who wants to own it and memorialize pets who have passed over rainbow bridge and possibly create it to link in with non-profit rescue organizations for donations online.
Homeschooling teachers can use it for their students to post and track their work - with privatization and image-locks - preserving work and documenting completion. Boy Scout & Girl Scout badge documentation and troop websites work as well!
Broken links make visitors unhappy and turn them away from your site. Don't let your broken links drive them away. Refresh-a-Link finds broken links on your site for you and sends reports to your e-mail so that you are always aware of what links are good and which ones are questionable or bad. It searches your entire site as often as you ask it to, and send you a report telling you the reason each link may be good or bad. We disconnected the payment function, which is why the algorithm is on hiatus right now. The algorithm functions and is ready for large scale testing for high volume. Consider what we have to be a working prototype. Sites with dysfunctional links are like books with spelling errors - both lose credibility. Let Refresh-A-Link keep you informed so that your credibility remains high with your site's readers. Designed to compliment Site Neighbors and 24-7 Exhibits.
