Do Web Rings Sparkle On Your Finger? By Lisa DeClue

Web rings are collections of sites connected in some way - by vocation, location or interest - that link back from the member's site to the ring. Thus, the ring provides banner and link swapping, sometimes resources of interest to members, and lots of free network advertising. And they provide a great opportunity to learn.

One way to get noticed by other sites is to write articles (which we do anyway!) and post them to compatible sites, preferably on RSS. You would have a contact line or two at the bottom, hence your site/email will be seen by those readers as well. For instance, I might write on "Avoiding that 'naked feeling' after taking down your Christmas decorations," and plug HGP and my "house call" service. I would submit it to decorating, organizing and women's sites. (Of course I haven't done this yet...!)

Here are some sites of interest that may help you on your way:  explains RSS (great info site)  list of free feeds  running your own biz  helps you define keywords to use in your listings  why blogging is good  Yahoo site builder  IBF site builder

The benefit is getting your site listed and hopefully earning new customers.
