Pacificbizonline is a searchable database developed to provide an ‘information gateway’ to Pacific Islands’ businesses and commercial contacts. The client who commissioned the project is the Pacific Cooperation Foundation.
The basic idea is the user chooses a few countries and/or industries and then businesses that match those criteria are displayed.
There is a system for the administrator to manage the businesses in the database, and the advertisements that can be displayed to the right of search results. Which advertisements get displayed depends on what the user is searching for, to increase the relevance and value of the advertisements.
