What is a WebRing?
The WebRing is a free service offered to the Internet community.
It is growing collection of homepages from all over the World that are
committed to creating a new kind of Web community.
The WebRing provides the World Wide Web with a different way to
organize web sites. The WebRing is a way to group together sites with similar
content by linking them together in a circle, or ring.
Joining a WebRing is a simple way to drive a lot of traffic to
your Website. It also makes your site rank better on search engines by linking
your site to others. This is called link popularity and is very important to
search engines such as Google.
Who Can Join the Towing WebRing?
Anyone who owns or administers a towing related website can join
the Towing WebRing. Towing companies, towing associations, towing suppliers, and
closely related industries are welcome.
If your Website is Included in this ring it is an indication
that your website is attractive, portrays the towing industry in a positive manor,
and adds to the internet experience.
Who Cannot Join the Towing WebRing?
Certain types of Websites are not
allowed to join the Towing WebRing. These would include:
Websites that contain adult content.
Websites that are under major construction (we
realize some sites are always under construction)
Website that only contain links.
A person who does not have the time or ability to add the
navigation code to their Website.
How Does it work?
The idea is that once you are at one site in the WebRing, you
can click on a "Next" or "Previous" link to go to adjacent
sites in the ring and--if you do it long enough--end up where you started.
This is actually something you can do without the WebRing system
by simply having each page owner link their site to the next. However, when
somebody wants to join the ring, someone has to edit their page to point to the
new page and--when the ring gets big enough--it becomes more and more difficult
to keep the ring "intact" when pages disappear and servers go down.
The WebRing provides a solution to all of these problems, as
well as numerous enhancements. When you join a WebRing, the HTML code on your
homepage never changes. Links point to a special CGI script that will send
people to the next (or previous) site in the ring. Because the central ring
database is located in one location, sites can be added and removed quickly and
easily, and because the WebRing CGI allows you go continue past sites that are
unreachable, you will always be able to continue around the loop.
The WebRing will do quite a few tricks, actually. People can
travel a ring in either direction, either jumping to (or skipping) the next site
or previous site, list the next five sites in the ring, jump to a random site in
the ring, or simply get a list of all pages in the loop. Furthermore, the
WebRing system supports the operation of a virtually unlimited number of
separate and distinct rings, allowing the creation of thousands of different
"communities" on the web. And, best of all, the WebRing is entirely
