It is up to the developers of websites to get their sites "linked" on other websites. If you put a link to someone's site on yours, and tell them about it, they will only be too happy to do the same.
But you need to inform them to start with. So any bird clubs whose websites not mentioned anywhere else should point the finger at whoever developed their site.
I developed my own birdwatching site ( and had no problems getting many links worldwide. The same when I a year later developed Gluepots website ( And yes I have done this in my spare time.
And another thing, in the source code for a website you can include key words that will make it easier for search engines to find them. Altavista and others have no trouble finding the above two sites. You can check & edit the code by clicking on tools - view source (in IE) or view - page source in Netscape.
Gluepot sells car stickers and now also t-shirts, polo shirts, sweaters, and caps. I am yet to update the website to include pictures of the merchandise and an order form.
