WHAT IS ALT-WEBRING?
alt-webring is a free service that enables you to create and manage webrings. Webrings link together sites that contain related content in a virtual 'ring', each site in the ring has a set of ring navigation controls that enable you to travel from one site to another around the ring. These controls are recognized by having links such as Next, Previous, Random, List, etc.

JOIN AS MANY RINGS AS YOU WISH
Anyone can join as many webrings as they wish, indeed, you'll find they become very addictive! All you need to do is find a ring that suits the subject-matter of your site and apply to join it.
