Add a Site to

The Tracking Ring

To join The Tracking Ring, just follow the directions on this page. First, there are a few guidelines that we must ask you to follow.

  1. Your pages must pertain primarily to tracking or be related to a tracking-related skill.
  2. The pages must not contain any obscene or offensive graphics, words, or references to sex or drugs. (Some things related to tracking may be considered offensive by some. Just try to be reasonable about what you include. Example: Pictures of scat on an animal tracking page are OK, because scatology is a science that helps identify animal species from droppings.)
  3. Absolutely no pornography or links to pornographic sites.

If your pages can not, or do not follow these guidelines, please do not join the ring. This web ring is intended to be a reference on the art and science of tracking. It should be viewable by all ages. Failure to follow these guidelines will lead to your site being removed from the Tracking Ring.

How to join The Tracking Ring:

  1. Save a copy of the two Tracking Ring graphics you see below. The one on the left is called tracklogo.jpg and the one on the right next.gif.
  2. Save the HTML from the Tracking Ring link box below. To do this, go to View and choose Source. You will find the code between the comment tags that indicate where to begin copying and where to stop. Copy and paste this code into your own document. After you have modified it with your site ID (which will be assigned in a later step) and name and e-mail, add this fragment to the first page of your site. This is the HTML code that creates The Tracking Ring link on your site.

  3. Remember to change the e-mail address and name so that they are your own. These are indicated by "your_name" and "your_email_address" in the code you copied. Enter your name as you would like it to appear in the link in the Tracking Ring box on your page.
  4. Fill out the form below to register your site. Write down the Site ID number you are assigned. This will put your page in the Tracking Ring queue, where it will remain until someone adds you to the ring. This does not insert you in the ring; the actual insertion is done by a ring member later. Use the assigned Site ID number to fill in all four of the places in the code where it says "your_site_ID."

For example:

If your site ID is 109, the finished link should look like this:

Submit site to The Tracking Ring

Owner's Name:
Site Title:
Site URL:

Please choose a password. (Don't forget it!!)
Keywords: Enter up to 20 keywords to describe your site.
Description: Enter a short description of your site.

Once you've registered with the above form, and have the HTML code modified and placed on your page, you're ready to be added. Don't forget - there are a total of six changes you need to make to the code. The Site ID is added in four places, your name in one place, and your e-mail address in one place. All are labeled in the HTML code so you can find the places to make the necessary modifications. If you've made all the changes, proceed to the last step.

  1. E-mail the owner of an existing Tracking Ring site and ask them to add you to the ring. Be sure to include your Site ID Number in the e-mail message. They will look at your page to make sure the Tracking Ring HTML fragment on your page is OK. Or, e-mail the ring owner at:
  2. After checking out your page, the existing Tracking Ring site owner will take your Site ID Number and use it to add you to the ring. You should then receive an e-mail telling you you've been added.
  3. That's it. Welcome to The Tracking Ring.
