Plug Boards

I’ve found something called a plug board. I’m sure this is nothing new, but for those that haven’t heard of them, plug boards are a way to let people ‘plug’ their sites. There’s a limit, such as maybe 10 sites and they can apparently be either text or images.

The service that I found, located here, seems to be pretty simple. You select the number of rows and columns. (Text can only be one row.) I don’t mind, as it gives me the opportunity to show several banners at once. This site shows what ten banners look like together. Here you can see what text looks like.

I’ve locked the banners so that only mine will ever show. This way, I can put them in site rotators and show several banners at once. I’ve left the text links open. I may even put the link on the side bar as a way of letting people advertise. I’ve been rotating both on EasyHits4U with some luck, but if the text links change too much, I may stop using that one.

At the very least, it does make it easier to refer people to things. I’ll have to see how it works out in the long run.
