Webrings - Old school site promotion

Tagged Under : , ,

I realised recently that I hadn’t been using webrings as a way to promote any of my sites in some time. Webrings are collections of websites that are linked together in a circular structure. No reciprocal linking, but instead a link to a couple of related sites usually in the form of a navigation bar you can stuff into your header or footer.

Most webrings are free to join, so it’s a quick and easy way to get traffic to a new site.  Whilst webrings aren’t as popular now as they were in their heyday and it may not be suitable for all sites, it’s still a simple way to get traffic and SEO benefits to many of your web properties.
