All about Linkage your nice websites archive!

Everything you always wanted to know about LINKAGE but were afraid to ask.

‘LINKAGE, a nice websites portal’ was established in the summer of 2004.

It evolved from a endless list of bookmarks in a folder called ‘nice websites’.

Ever since LINKAGE daily provides it’s ever growing number of visitors with screenshots of nice websites.

What is considered a ‘nice website’?

This is personal of course but LINKAGE, which is liked by many, considers a website to be ‘nice’ when it meets the following list:

30% DESIGN (a nice website must look nice!)
20% INTERACTIVITY
25% use of SOUND & VIDEO
10% NAVIGATION
5% CONTENT
5% EFFORT
5% HUMOR (Why so serious?)

Of course exceptions are sometimes made, but this is the idea.
Also emotions are involved…

What is NOT considered a ‘nice website’?

LINKAGE is nice…But refuses the following:

– Websites with clearly visible (Google) ads.
– Websites that contain explicit content, violence, hate etc.
– Websites that are spam sensitive.
– Websites that promote illegal software etc.
– Websites that don’t respect general rules of the internet.
– Websites that just aren’t nice.

What do the ‘categories’ mean?

That is actualy quite simple.

SITE of the WEEK:
From all websites that are submitted in one week, the website that impressed most will be bombarded to be the ‘site of the week’. Other websites are of course the sites of the day.

PORTFOLIO:
Here you wil find portfolio websites from graphic designers, webdesigners, photographers, fashion designers or other creatives that have a online portfolio.

Please feel free to submit nice websites!

STUDIO:
Websites of design studios, architecture agencies or other collaborations.

MOVIE:
All about movies, stars and everything related.

MUSIC:
All about music, artists and everything related.

JUST GREAT:
Websites that do not fit in any other category.
