Easy PR Booster

Easy PR Booster is a powerful linking script that allows you to easily manage links across your entire site network.

This is a great way to distribute PR and increase search engine spidering.

INSTALLATION STEPS

 2.1  Unzipping the script

In order to begin installing the “Easy PR Booster”, unzip the installation pack. The contents of the unzipped folder should then be uploaded to a folder that you create on your web server.

Example:

You extract to: C:\Documents and Settings\Xybercode\My Documents\Easy PR Booster

You upload to:  /public_html/prboost

2.2  Setting up a MySQL database

Using your assigned cPanel or DirectAdmin set up a new database and username, which you can easily remember. Make sure that the database user has permissions to all functions for the database. It may be useful to assign the database name the same as your folder name and the user and pass something that you easily remember.

2.3  Updating the db.php file

In your HTML editor open the file db.php in the Includes folder of the package. Lines 3 – 6 contain the following information:

$host =

$user =

$pass =

$base =

Enter the following information between the quotes that follow:

Host = Your local host for your MySQL database (usually default is localhost), this is the default. Example:

$host = “localhost”;

User = The MySQL database username. Example:

$user = “username”;

Pass = The password of the user for the database that you created. Example:

$pass = “password”;

Base = The database name that was given to your MySQL database. Example:

$base = “databasename”;

2.4  Uploading to your web server

Using FTP create a folder on your server called prboost (or whichever name you prefer). Then upload all the files that you unzipped into that folder.

2.5  Finishing the installation

In your web browser go to the installation page of your Easy PR Booster. Example:

http://www.yourdomain.com/prbooster/install/index.php

You will then see the following message:

This script will install Easy PR Booster. Before installing, make sure that you have edited the db.php file in the includes folder with your database information. When you are ready to continue, click below.

Click the Install button to complete the installation. After this is complete you will then see a button to login to the admin area.

2.6  Uploading a .htaccess file

If you are going to display the PHP content inside of your .html pages you will need to make sure that you have an .htaccess file.

You need to determine whether you already have a .htaccess file in your websites root folder.  If you do, download it to your local computer using your FTP software, and then open it with Notepad.

Look to see if this line exists in your .htaccess file:

AddType application/x-httpd-php htm html

If it does not, add it to the top of your .htaccess file, save that file, and upload it back up to your webserver.

GETTING INTO THE ADMIN AREA 

To begin using Easy PR Booster simply go to:

http://www.yourdomain.com/prboost/

Or if you can directly click the button after the install was completed.

The default username and password are both ‘admin’ without the quotes.

Using Easy PR Booster

4.1  Adding a new link

To start using the script you will need to add your first link.

You will see a ‘+’ button at the top right of the interface. Click that to add your first link.

4.2  Inputting the information of your link

You will then see the following interface:

Enter the required information and click the Add Link Now button.

Applying to your sites 

5.1  Adding the include codes on your sites.

Once you have added all your links in the admin area you will be ready to add the scripts include code on the pages that you wish. Each link is tied to the keywords that you entered for your links.

  • The include codes

This is an example what your include code should look like:

<?PHP

include(“http://www.yourdomain.com/prbooster/display.php?keyword=yourkeyword”);

?>

You will simply need to replace the domain and keyword data to have the proper link code. You then simply copy and paste the above 3 lines and paste it as described below:

You can display your links by adding them to the pages that you wish the links to appear where you would like them to be displayed.

You can also look at the sample.html (inside the zip that you downloaded) file for an example of a proper include code.

5.3 Displaying the link vertically or horizontally

Use this code to display links vertically:

<?PHP

include(“http://www.yourdomain.com/prbooster/display.php?keyword=yourkeyword”);

?>

 

Use this code to display links horizontally:

 

<?PHP

include(“http://www.yourdomain.com/prbooster/display.php?keyword=yourkeyword&display=2”);

?>

 

You are done! I hope you enjoy Easy PR Booster.  NOTE: This is not a WordPress plugin – it is for an advanced user!
