When you talk about the shape of cyberspace, webrings are one of the ways that cyberspace can be twisted into a circle. A webring is a ring of links. There are probably webrings for everything and they are good for small sites that need readers. People like to follow the ring links to find more pages like the one that they are on. You can see the ring badge over on the right side of this page, down below the recent posts and the amazon ad.
Webrings are a tried and true promotional tool. You don’t get many hits, but they are steady and they grow fast as the ring grows. If you have a blog, you’ll benefit from the traffic on other sites in the ring. When a surfer finishes reading your page, they can click on “next” and go to the next page in the ring. It’s a win-win situation.
The Spec Fic Bloggers badge is 160 pixels wide, just the right size for most blogs.
I just updated the code to bring it into the 21st century. It uses fancy css and gets rid of the clunky table format.
Please join up. The traffic grows exponentially with the number of sites in the ring. 10 sites get four times the traffic as 5 sites. 20 sites get 16 times the traffic as 5 sites. If you know any spec-fic bloggers that have control over their blog templates, send them this way. It will help all of us.
