Q&A

Q1:How many different portal and directory sites should I submit to?
A1: This depends upon how much time you have, really. To get the most exposure means extending your weblog to as many potential directories as possible.
Q2:How many weblog rings should I submit to?
A2: Weblog rings work differently than directories. You have to add the weblog ring code to your site, meaning that the more weblog rings you belong to, the more extra code (and as a by-product, the more visual space) you'll have to accommodate. It's generally thought that belonging to one general webring or to a very few topical rings is most effective.
Q3:How do I determine which newsreader is right for me?
A3: The beauty of most current newsreaders is that they are free. This means you can try them out and see how well they work for you without making any financial commitment. Be sure to read the documentation before you download to be sure the newsreader will work properly with your operating system and, if browser-based, your preferred Web browser.
Q4:I get ping errors from time to time; what does that mean?
A4: Typically, a ping error does not come from your end of the spectrum; rather, the receiving site is having some kind of technical difficulty in accepting your ping. Usually these errors are intermittent and will go away when the underlying problem at the receiving site is corrected. If you have a specific, repeat problem with pinging a site, first check that you have everything set up the way you're supposed to, and if so, consider contacting the site in question for support.
