The main idea behind our WebRing is to drive quality traffic to pro photography sites on the Internet. Professional photographers who have their own websites can expect to see an increase in traffic by joining our WebRing, if they follow the rules we provide.

Why Would Photographers see an Increase in Traffic/Visitors to their Website(s) if they Joined the WebRing?

It is common knowledge that most people on the Internet are looking for something. Our WebRing makes it easier for those people who are looking for professional photographers to find them. By joining the WebRing, photographers are requested to place a small HTML code on the front page of their site, which displays a WebRing banner ad, along with WebRing navigation options for visitors. Visitors to our WebRing member sites are obviously looking for professional photographers and the navigation options included in our HTML code makes it very easy for them to visit all of the photography sites within our WebRing network. Everybody benefits in this situation! The visitors find quality photography sites and the owners of those sites see an increase in traffic from these visitors, who are browsing through the WebRing!

What are the Rules Governing the WebRing?

Our WebRing rules are pretty straightforward and easy to understand and they may be found by clicking here. We do not allow certain types of sites to join the ring, such as pornography related-sites. The main requirement we ask of potential members is the agreement to display the HTML code on the front page of their website(s).

Why does the HTML code need to be Placed on the Front Page of all Members' Websites?

The HTML code we offer is what makes the WebRing work. Without the code displayed on each member's site, visitors who are browsing the WebRing would run into "dead links". All of the sites in our WebRing are linked together by the code.

Does it Cost Anything to Join the WebRing?

Membership in the WebRing is completely FREE of charge to all professional photographers. Our WebRing offers free advertising for everybody involved!
