Welcome to the HomeBizRotator link rotator script blog.
What is a link rotator script? A link rotator script is a tool that lets you send visitors to one URL, and the script will rotate to a different destination URL with every visit.
For example, you send traffic to a certain link, like http://homebizrotator.com/rotate . Upon each visit you will see a different website is displayed in order:
Why would you want to rotate links?
I found the need to rotate links when I wanted to do an advertising coop. I wanted to collect a pool of money for advertising to get a special discounted rate. Each member who participated in the coop, provided me with a fee for each coop spot. Then, I would direct traffic from the traffic source to the rotator URL and each coop member would get visits to their web site.
Upon searching for a link rotation script, I could not find a script that did what I needed to do. I did find a service that would do it for me, but there was a monthly fee associated to the service. I didn’t want to pay a monthly fee, so I started looking for a rotation script.
Most link rotators that I found were random link rotator scripts. I theory, if you have enough traffic every link in a random rotator script should get about the same amount of views. But, I wanted to be sure that each coop member would get the same number of views and they to do this is with a sequential link rotator script.
So, I decided to build a script that would do what I needed it to do. The HomeBizRotator website rotator script was born.
The rotator script was just what I needed or a coop link rotator, and worked very well.
I soon discovered several other uses for the link rotator script.
I finally started this blog to help educate you on the HomeBizRotator script, to handle support questions, and to let you know of new uses for the rotator script.
