On a whim I decided to purchase the domain Top 100 vBulletin and put a wsnlinks directory on the site to rank vBulletin forums.

The only requirement is that External Data is turned on giving me access to external.php.

I’m then ranking the forums based on

  • Number of threads
  • Ratings by visitors to the directory
  • Google’s PR

Redirects are where a link to a site looks like http://www.mysite.com/go/143/ or http://www.mysite.com/goto.php?site=143

These are great for the directory owner because they can track the popularity of a link and capture other statistics. They are, however, almost worthless for the site owner.

Every day there are new directories being created and keeping up with them can be quite a trial. If you have a series of sites that you submit then adding them manually can be a bit of a struggle.

Solution: have a generic descriptor file for sites to identify the main sections of the site that might be submitted to a directory.

The Problem

I visit a site looking for a link exchange and I look at the other links they have and wonder if I can exchange links with those ones too. I visit them and then find that they’re already listed. But I have 127 categories so I have to use the internal search tool and it adds significantly to the time spent building up my links.
