We have taken on a number of interesting projects over the years, a limited selection of which are highlighted here for your enjoyment.
We built Uvumi.com, a website for musicians and music fans, where thousands of independent and like-minded artists have gathered to promote their work and network with their fans. The project was experimental, and while it never really took off, it is still online today and attracts a modest following of hardcore indie music fans and talented acts. Read more here.
Designed and built in 2007, the Sprux Ad-supported Web Network was an experiment in creating a wide-reaching network of informational web sites, blogs, and photojournals intended to study search engine optimization techniques and internet advertising models. Using custom software we developed in-house, SAWN is capable of managing and hosting an unlimited number of advertising supported web sites, easily scaling to large server clusters and providing management tools for all aspects of a massive web hosting system, including templates, content, advertisements from all sources, and even blogging and statistics reporting. SAWN taught us some very valuable lessons about SEO, online marketing, and revenue acquisition via ad sales, and we have taken those lessons with us to every project since.
SAWN uses tried and true SEO techniques to bring search traffic to its websites, and is now being used primarily to provide an SEO boost to customer websites. Because SAWN follows the basic rules of SEO, and thanks to our team's years of experience in optimizing web content for search indexes, it has shown success in boosting customers' website rankings in the major search engines.

Over the years Sprux has designed and built websites for various businesses. Here is a small sample of our work:
In early 2006 Sprux LLC hosted an international intern for six months through a program offered by CIEE. This opportunity was used to the benefit of not just Sprux and the intern, but the entire community of Myrtletown, California, where Sprux was located at the time. As part of a training program and volunteer effort on Sprux's part, we developed a free community access website called Myrtletown.net, to serve and benefit that neighborhood.
Later, when we hosted another intern as part of a short pogram to help college graduates obtain real-world tech experience, we built a custom wireless internet hotspot and mounted the device to the roof of our office, providing free internet access to anyone capable of receiving the signal. The project was a huge success, and the access point continues to operate today, seeing much use from neighbors and passers-by who can benefit from the easy network access.
