VHLinks was launched on September 2, 1999, as a service to Van Halen fans around the world, as the definitive resource guide for Van Halen-related sites on the internet. In over two years of service, VHLinks has logged over 6.8 million visitors to the site, and we have well over 325 links to VH-related resources on the internet. We are also the largest VH fan site on the net, and are ranked as one of the most popular Van Halen sites on Yahoo! and Google. As the internet changes, as technology advances, as web page designs become more intricate, we have attempted to stay up-to-date ourselves and have re-designed the site on several occasions, attempting to keep our design fresh.

Over the first 4 1/2 years of VHLinks, we have had four significantly different designs for the site. Each layout was a progression in quality, in terms of html coding and graphics. We tried to employ different uses of javascript, Flash, Server Side Includes, PHP, animated images, etc. to make the site visually appealing while continuing to make it functional and easy to use.

Below are selected screen shots from each of the four phases of VHLinks. The screen shots are links to actual home pages we had on the site throughout the years. While the example pages do have hyperlinks on them, many of them do not work anymore, as they simply are links to whatever target they went to at that time. Don't use these example pages as anything more than eye candy. Also, we have attempted to point out the significance of each screen shot, whether it was the use of our new logo, the site launch date, etc. Enjoy!
