We at digihitch want to see more road travel websites, books and articles get the attention they deserve. This is why we have created some great tools for you to put the word out. If you follow the steps below you could receive thousands of new visitors and readers. All we ask in return is that you promote us. You can place one of our banners or images on your site by clicking here.
For webmasters, make sure your site is in our Web Links section. New links are featured in several places, including our popular 'The Week on digihitch' page. This will give you good visibility to start out. Make sure to write a simple description of your site listing its key features. You must be a registered user to add a link. Click HERE to get started.
(Keep in mind that we will NOT approve links to sites that have no original content or are advertising sinkholes.)
After your link is approved, you can further promote your site by allowing visitors to rate it at digihitch. To do this, search for your link in our database then click 'details' below its description. Click the text near the bottom of the page which says 'Is this your website? Learn how to promote it on digihitch...' You will be guided through the remaining steps needed to create a rating system on your site. Once it is in place you will receive even more visits to your site as it becomes better ranked.
Is your website or travel project related to hitchhiking, road tripping or road culture? If so, you can share a press release or reprinted story using our story submission form. Please polish it up a bit so the article is interesting and readable. Share some history and anecdotes where possible.
Webmasters who promote digihitch with gusto (linking our images on your main page or most popular travel pages) are eligible to be Supporters. We will create a link to your site and feature a small image. This will also boost your ranking in search engines like Google.com, Alta Vista and Yahoo! Click HERE to learn more.
