Definition

An award given from one Web site to another Web site.

Information

Web site awards range from large-scale events like the Webby Awards to the thousands of small-scale link exchanges from small sites.

Many of the Web site awards awards are less about competition and more about a distribution of Web site traffic. Sites getting awards hope to attract visitors from the award sites, and sites giving awards hope to attract visitors from the recipient sites. When considering potential awards, consider the demands, if any, imposed on winners. Some award sites may request bigger and better placement than is appropriate for your site.
