What's a Web Ring?
Web Rings have been around since the early days of the World Wide Web. Today, there are more than 100,000 Web Rings. They are the true "communities" of the Internet.
The animated diagram at right shows how Web Rings work.

Each Web Ring includes Member Sites focused on a general or particular area or topic of interest.
Membership in a Web Ring may range from a handful to hundreds of member Websites, and may include commercial, organizational, and/or personal Websites, depending on each Ring's membership rules.
Web Ring Membership is moderated by a "Ring Master" who ensures that each Member Website is relevant to that Ring's purpose or focus, and that inappropriate material is not posted on Ring Member Sites.
Many Web Rings also include Discussion Groups, or Forums, where people with similar interests can share information or contact each other.
