I think that tonyguy2000's confusion is because My Backyard Weather feeds Weather Underground, and I don't think that anyone ever thought to do a web link backwards to MBW as their personal web site.

Unfortunately, I do not think that the MBW web portal allows "guest" access to your station's data without creating an account and logging in.  If I'm correct, it might be an interesting idea for a feature request though.....

Acu-Rite provides a free web service called My Backyard Weather (MBW) with their higher-end weather stations.  Using either the Internet bridge device or included PC software and a USB cable, you can upload your station's data live to MBW.  From there, you can access it via their smartphone app and the web, but you need to logon to MBW to see the data.  You can also share your sensor data with others, but they also must have MBW user accounts and I believe also know the MAC address of your device(s) to see them.

MBW has an option to automatically feed Weather Underground (WU) as it receives your data, if you set it up with your WU station ID and logon credentials.  On the WU side, you can specify a web home page when you set up a WU station.  The question was how does one put the URL for their MBW site into WU as their home page.

Still confused?????  :-)
