The Chile Seed Ring Requirements?
To become a
and Plant Ring member, a web site must contain content
pertaining to the sale, trading, swapping or exchange of,
sources of, growing or equipment pertaining to growing of
Hot Chile Peppers. It may be either a personal
non-commercial web site that trades or exchange Chile
seeds, or a commercial web site that sells Chile seeds and
markets related products. The entire site need not be
totally Chile seed/plant related. Web sites with seed
starting and growing tips (Chile specific), Chile plant or
pod identification photos, equipment and/or instructions
for growing Chiles by hydroponics, etc. are good candidates
for membership also.
In addition to
containing required Chile seed/plant content, the web site
must also display the Chile Seed and Plant Ring
links. The links
code is used by web surfers to navigate from
one site in the ring to the next. If a site doesn't have
the links, a broken ring exists. A web surfer will click on
the previous site's Next link and then have no way to continue
around the ring.
The page with
Seed and Plant Ring links is the first page a web surfer will
see when arriving at your site via the ring. It can
NOT be your Home page, links page or "my
rings" page. The most appropriate page would be your
seed/plant index page, growing tips page, plant/pod
identification page, etc. Visitors "rounding" the ring will
drop out if they have to wade through several "classy"
pages of self promoting links before they get to the real
content they are looking for. The simpler it is for a
visitor to quickly find what they are looking for
the longer they will stay! This is very important to
remember. The goal of the Chile Seed and Plant Ring is
to give each visitor just what they want quickly and easily
so they come back often. Again, and again, and again!
Starting off on the right foot with each visitor will make
a good first impression and go a long way to insure many

Maintenance is Necessary?
Have you ever
tried to keep a links page up to date? The beauty of
Seed and Plant Ring is that individual web sites don't have to
maintain any links once the Ring links are in place.

checking and verification to ensure that the links are
still valid. Chile Seed and Plant Ring membership is maintained in
a centralized database. As sites come and go in the ring no
changes are necessary to individual member pages. The
neighboring sites linked by your Next and Previous links are looked up from

Seed and Plant Ring: Summary
The Chile Seed and Plant Ring is
exactly what it sounds like it is... a ring on the web!
Each page on the ring has links to a main index and also to
its neighbors on the ring. You can move around the ring in
either direction and if you go far enough you come back to
where you started.
Instead of each web page having
its own index of links to similar pages an index is
maintained centrally. This way links are less likely to be
out of date. Prospective members of the Ring simply add
their site to the queue, then the ring manager adds the new
site to the Ring. The ring then evolves exactly how the
members want it.
