How does it work?
TopStangs.com is a great way to bring free traffic to your Ford Mustang web
page! Visitors come here to find other Classic and Late Model Mustang related sites on the
web. The higher your site ranks, the more visible it is, and the more hits
Site rank is determined by the number of
votes (hits) you send to this site. Special software tracks both hits coming in and going
out by using the unique URL that was emailed to you when you first signed up. (Click
here for link instructions) The ranking is based on the number of votes for the current month only, although the grand total number of votes is also shown for reference. Every month the list resets to zero which keeps it fair for new sites. Also, only one vote per visitor will be recorded every 24 hours. Visitors must knowingly click on the link on your page to vote. No automated or forced voting will be allowed. This is simply to prevent unscrupulous "stuffing" of the "ballot box."
Who can join? What are the requirements?
Only Mustang related sites are allowed. All years are welcome, but your site must focus primarily on Ford Mustangs. This doesn't mean you have one or two photos of Mustangs and the rest of your site is about something else entirely. Commercial sites are welcome but they must cater specifically to Mustangs. This does not include sites selling spark plugs, oil, air filters or other such generic stuff. If you have questions about whether your site qualifies please email before signing up.
How do I join?
Click on "Add Your Site" to your left or at the bottom of any
page. Once you fill out the information and hit "submit" you will be
given your unique URL and you can start adding the links and/or banners
to your site. Your listing will not show up until you send at least one hit from
your site. Please allow 1 hour after you send your first hit for your site to
appear on the TopStangs list since the list re-ranks every hour.
I just tested my link. Why doesn't it show up?
The statistics are updated once every hour, so your clicks won't show up immediately. Also, only one vote is registered per visitor every 24 hours to avoid artificially inflating the numbers. And don't forget to double check your link code! Make sure the code ends in your "username" and remember that they are case sensitive. See the linking instructions.
I feel like cheating. Can I?
Uhmmm...sorry, but NO! This really should go without saying, but NO CHEATING! If any member is caught cheating in any way their account will be suspended immediately and with no questions asked. This includes all automated or forced linking. Visitors must knowingly click on the link from your site and you must make it obvious that they are clicking the link to vote for your site. No blind links allowed. Also, no email spamming allowed. Telling your friends is one thing, but mass emailing to people you don't know is spam, is illegal, and will get you kicked off the list. If you see a site who you think is cheating please email me.
