Well when I am speaking of a traffic wheel I am not referring to a Link Wheel, but a slightly different concept of this ideal.
The thing I am calling a Traffic Wheel is very similar in design, but slightly different in its motives. Where as a link wheel is design to capture you and keep you running around in circles the traffic wheel is designed to do the opposite. It is designed to set you free to move about the sites within the Website that you are working from and that your visitors are visiting.
In fact my Website will often send you away and make your search it back out. So bookmarking a site with a good traffic wheel is a smart ideal. As you will definitely want to avoid link wheels, whose main goal is to capture you in every sense of the word.
As these are a kind of or liken too, that of the every day modern Casino. These link wheels they seek to keep you busy and doped up some what. Trying to convince you that you are going somewhere. When in fact you are going no where fast. Like the Casinos they inflate, or pump in oxygen into the link/casino to keep you alert, but slightly excited.
There are no clocks on the walls, no discernible easy way out as the isles are offset from the exits. The carpets are busy, the surroundings are elaborately decorated. Time is lost within these traps. Pretty girls and musical bells and whistles. Pretty colors and flashing lights, free things or free drinks and the illusion of winners everywhere.
This is not what my traffic wheel is about. The ideal behind the traffic wheel I have built is to allow easy navigations between sites out side of and linked to or for this website and their owners, as they work their daily jobs of posting and socializing.
I designed my site so no matter which page of it I am on I can make a few simple clicks and be where I need to be. I borrowed the Ideal from Opera’s multi linked window browser. I loved that concept of seeing what you want and clicking on it. To go where you want to go.
So with my traffic wheel I do the same thing with some different devices. Widgets, buttons, text links, ads, search bars, and profile pages and their links. You will see them on almost every page if not then on the previous page or the next page. And this is why I have internal links in my site that allow to turn the page forward or backwards. And some that allow you to go to the sites home page where Its information blog is and to Its site map.
This also helps the Search engines robots crawl or search through your sites. The Site Map and the internal linking of all site pages. My site also has many rollers or news feeds which I use to stay informed and up to date on many topics which give me insights into what is hot for the day to write about.
The traffic wheel takes time to build, but it is worth its efforts. You need to find people who will follow you and the things that you follow. I write for Pay Per Click Publishers, Wikinut.com, Triond.com, and for Hubpages.com So I have widgets and text links to my profile pages and to my works, my writes, and my poems on this sites. Which I have some friends and followers on.
Who can visit my Website which is a tri-domain site. Which is on three different parts of the local inter-net and the World Wide Web. This works for me and them because. As with most Browsers once you signed in to your sites wherever you go your browser will turn your sites options on. Let’s say you leave my Website and go to one of the top ten websites like, Facebook, Myspace, Youtube, LinkedIn, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg, Yahoo or Google or Gmail wherever you go your browser turns on your options if you are signed in and linked to these other sites.
So now you can traverse the inter-net and never have to leave your website behind. But you must place as many of these devices everywhere that you are and wherever you can. So you can easily get back to your own Website. Or simply Book mark your own site and place it in your tool bar. So you can click on it. I still type a lot all day so I like to lose as many keystroke as I can.
You can best see these devices in used on my Google Profile Page and my Digg Profile Page in my Gravatar Profile as well which is a tool offered by WordPress I believe it is a Traffic wheel also or a Link wheel without an altered motive. As well in parts of my other Profile Pages my traffic wheel is hard at work, at Triond.com they are dry links, some links there are dry or are not click-able, but you can paste them into a blank web page status bar or location bar the one at the top and in the middle where the HTML addresses pop up ie.
Refresh or send it and it should take you to the copy and pasted web address from the dry linked profile page. Others there are Buttons a Blogger button, a twitter button, a stumbleupon button, and a facebook button.
Now these traffic wheel links you are asking; what is their benefits? Well they are two fold 1. For you as you are working seeking out informations and socializing, and if your like me you are doing this as often as you can and for hours at a time. So you can do less clicking and typing using a good Traffic Wheel. Just as it works for you it will work for your visitor if you tell them how to use it. I don’t just yet as I am looking for some hard core dedicated followers who are willing to work and dig about. Who will and want to seek and find the informations Sinbad and Donnie are scattering at all these different sites of theirs that they visit.
2. Once your visitors become followers and float about the same circles as you do your wheel becomes their wheel. So if you are there at their site or if they are at your site you still breeze through the Web with less finger exercising which gets to be tough on the hands. Especially if they are as old as these ones of mine.
You see the Big Dogs are using these traffic wheels everyday. They are right there in front of your face, hyper text links, follow buttons, widgets, search bars, and text links. And they do it through out their thousands of pages. This is how they traverse about the inter-net and the Web as well. So there is no need to reinvent the Wheel you just need decide which spinners your going to place on your vehicle or Site.
