“ Administration is a breeze and with so many configuration options, you really can fine tune your links database so it doesn't look like every other directory. I'd highly recommend WSN Links to anyone who needs to keep a collection of links and doesn't want any hassle doing so.” —Nigel Reed

What makes WSN Links special?
Reach a wider audience with the WSN Links suite of SEO tools, from customizable URL rewriting to sitemaps and opengraph.
Turn more visitors into members with single-click signups via google sign-in or facebook connect. Keep them coming back with dozens of advanced member features, including several types of email subscriptions and social tools to message each other. The invites system helps build hype.
Grow your web directory with powerful import features. Add RSS feeds to categories and watch your site add new listings by itself every day. Add the results of a web search to a category for hundreds of effortless listings. Add a list of URLs and let WSN Links fetch their titles and descriptions. Import personal or industry data from spreadsheets or databases. Never let your site get stale again — more fresh content not only keeps people coming back, it brings in more search traffic.
So you've got a thriving web directory, and now you want to make money from it. WSN Links can help there, too. The built in ads system helps you create ad slots and rotate your banners, and tracks your clickthrough rates for you. Monetize submitters by encouraging them to pay to prioritize or enhance listings. Monetize special membership perks with the usergroup sponsorship system.
WSN Links automates many tasks, freeing you up to be more productive. Duplicate prevention and reciprocal link verifications and warnings are automatic (when enabled). The dead link checker finds deceased listings while the content checker finds domains that have changed to bad stuff. Automatic blocking of known spammers (from a third party database) and options to block visits or registrations by geographical location take the work out of dealing with spam. Automated backups protect you from mistakes. Whatever workload can't be automated can be shared with assigned moderators and administrators.
The WSN Links default theme (as well as the bootstrap theme and several others) is fully responsive and passes google's mobile site test. Desktop browsers see a full powerful desktop site, while on smaller screens it transforms gracefully into a readable, tap-friendly interface. You get desktop, tablet and phone versions without having to think about it!
Will your requirements change someday down the road? Do you just like to tinker? WSN Links isn't just a links directory script, it's the most flexible directory script on the market. Easy to use switches let you customize the functionality for differnet types of sites. If you want to go beyond the thousands of features already present, the powerful templates system is just the start. The plugins and modifications system make it easy to make powerful additions and changes to functionality without any upgrade problems. The generic widget system lets you design your own database table and add, edit and view the records via WSN Links — no programming required!
You need a partner who will be there for you as your business grows. Most web directory scripts are abandoned by their developers within a year or fall behind as the web evolves. We've been actively developing and supporting WSN Links since 2002, and will continue for decades to come. From free installation service and free site inspection service to lightning fast bug fixes and in-depth support from the developer and any paid modifications you may need, we've got you covered! Rest easy knowing you'll always be safe from attackers with perpetual free security updates and an automated updates system. Future-proof your website with WSN Links!
