Hotline Webring

Do you long for a simpler time, when America was Online and the only person you could Ask was Jeeves? Hotline Webring is bringing that time back, with Webrings!

In the 90s, search engines were of generally low quality, and people wanted a way to discover related sites. “I wish I could see more sites about puppies,” you might say to yourself over the sonorous clang of your modem, while waiting for a bitmap of a Clumber Spaniel to load.

So people with websites joined webrings, which were collections of sites where each site linked to their neighbors to form a ring. Sometimes there was one button on each site that'd take you to a random site in the webring. People got more traffic and less-popular sites benefited from being linked to more-popular ones.

Now, in 2020 C.E., there are search engines and aggregators so finding related sites isn't that hard, and webrings have fallen by the wayside.

We here at Hotline Webring traveled to the wayside, picked up The Concept of a Webring, dusted it off, and launched it to frankly astonishing acclaim.

How to Join

Here's our easy two-and-a-half-step process:

  1. Choose a unique slug. If your website were http://gabebw.com, you might use gabebw. Using something based on your website is a good idea because it's likely to be unique.
  2. Add links on your website to https://hotlinewebring.club/YOUR-SLUG/next and https://hotlinewebring.club/YOUR-SLUG/previous
  3. You're done! When someone clicks on one of your links, you'll be automatically added to the webring.

FAQ

Q: Can I control who I link to?
A: No, sorry, it's all automatic. But on the bright side it's easy to sign up!

Q: How can I reach the people who run this thing?
A: Email us! We're always delighted to receive email: webmaster@hotlinewebring.club.

Q: Do you allow any website into Hotline Webring?
A: Hotline Webring accepts many sites, but not all. We draw the line at a few specific places:


Any site exhibiting these qualities will be removed.

It is impossible to enumerate everything that is not allowed. For this reason, we reserve the right to remove a site if we (the webmasters) feel it is outside of our own personal bounds. If you want to know if your site is acceptable for the webring, please email us.

Q: Is my slug taken?
