  • I have added my site but it is not showing. Why? (top)
    • Your site may be in a queue awaiting approval to the Topsite List.
    • When your site has been approved it can take up to 30 minutes to show.
    • Click refresh/renew on your browser.
  • My site was not accepted. Why? (top)
    • It may have been turned down because it was placed in the wrong
      category. Return to the index page and look for another. If you cannot
      find one you may add it to the personal homepages category. A more
      specific category may be added for your subject at a later date.
    • Sites are not turned down because of our personal taste. Many good
      sites are refused because they do not fit the requirements for the
      category. Some refused sites are general homepages that may cover
      many subjects.
  • My hits are not being counted. Why? (top)
    • Your browser must be cookie enabled. We require this to help in our
      efforts against cheats.
    • Multiple hits to a link will not count. Our software is set up to ignore
      repeat hits within a certain time span. We know that some webmasters
      wish to click their own link several times to see if it is working but our
      software will block this also.
    • IP addresses are also checked in the bid to stop cheating. A few genuine
      hits may be blocked in this way. This is also unavoidable but the hit
      count will even itself out because it is the same for everybody.
    • Firewall software and some browser settings may block hits.
    • Click refresh/renew on your browser.
  • I have lost my link details. (top)
    • Go back to the topsite index page, click on your category, click on lost
      a/c info under the webmaster links, enter user name, select display link
      syntax and click log in.
  • I have lost my password and/or username. (Top)
    • Go back to the topsite index page,click on your category, click on lost
      a/c info under the webmaster links, click on forgot password click here,
      enter your email address and click remind me. Note that the email address
      must be the one that you signed up with.
  • My banner will not show. (Top)
    • Banners hosted by geocities angelfire and several other free hosts will not
      show. This is the policy of the hosts and is beyond our control.
    • Banners show for the TOP 100 sites in each category only.
    • Your banner was not a gif or jpg so it has been removed. You may replace
      corrected details.
    • Your banner details are incorrect and have been removed. You may replace
      corrected details.
    • Your hosts server is down.
  • What does "in" and "out" mean. (Top)
    • "In" is the number of times that the link on your page back to us has been
      hit. This is the number that decides the rank order on topsites. Please note
      that this total will not include multiple hits coming from the same source.
    • "Out" is the number of times that the link back to your site from topsites
      has been hit. This number does not affect the sites rank in the topsite.
