Chapter 6: Building Link Lists

In This Chapter

  • Creating a link list
  • Discovering link options
  • Creating a link directory on your site

A link list, commonly referred to as a blogroll, is a list of links to other Web sites and blogs that you want to share with your readers. The link list usually displays in a sidebar on your blog (by using widgets) or on a dedicated page if your theme offers a links page template (see Book VI to find out how to create a template).

You can use a link list in various ways:

  • Share links with other blogs that have linked to your blog.
  • Provide additional resources for your readers.
  • Provide links to other sites that you own.

This chapter takes you through the mechanics of building and categorizing link lists, understanding link relationships, and discovering the different options you can set for the link lists on your site.
