Frequently Asked Questions
|What is a manual traffic exchange?|
A trafffic exchange is a great way for website owners, small business owners, and opportunity seekers to generate traffic to their websites. The concept is very simple... if you visit my website, I will visit yours!
|How do I get my website shown?|
An easy way to get your website shown is to use ArkHits surf option. As a free member (Sailor), your site will get shown once for every three pages surfed.
You can upgrade your membership to (Survivor) for a small monthly fee and get your site shown two times for every three page you surf. For the best surf/view ratio, upgrade your membership to (Flood Warrior) and get your website shown one time for every page you surf. We also have dynamic surf rates which means your surf ratio with go up the more you surf each day and the day after as well.
|Can I sign up for more than one membership?|
No. Only one membership per person per IP address is allowed. Signing up for more than one membership is considered theft. Your accounts will be cancelled, and you will lose all credits and any accrued downlines.
|Can anyone join ArkHits?|
Yes, anyone can join. The only requirement is that you agree to the terms of service.
|Can I advertise any web page?|
Very simple, no framebreakers, no hate, no warez, no viruses, no adult content, no problem!
We do allow rotators and we recommend that ArkHits users consider using a PageSwirl Rotator. This is one of the most user friendly rotators for both exchange user and owner.
If your sites do not follow the rule, not only will your websites be removed, your account may be suspended. Please make sure you check your URLs before you add them! Pop Ups are Allowed, but should be limited to one pop-up and/or exit ad.
|How come I can't delete a website in my site list?|
Make sure you have ZERO % assigned to any URL you are trying to remove from your account. This will allow you to edit and replace any site you wish.
Please note that you will need to make sure that the other sites total your auto-assign mimimun (usually 75%) when you make this change.
|How come I can't use an AOL e-mail address?|
Unfortunately, AOL emails don't do so well with TE programs and most don't work. To remedy this it's best to use a email address like a gmail email where you know it will get through here at ArkHits.com.
|Are there other ways of getting hits to my sites besides surfing?|
Yes. You can either buy credits, exchange them for banner/text link impressions, or refer new members and earn residual traffic.
|What is auto-assigning?|
Auto assigning means simply that the credits that you have earned by surfing and from your referrals are automatically applied to the url(s) that you have listed. Sailor members must auto-assign 75% of their credits, Survivor must auto-assign 50% of their credits and Flood Warrior must auto-assign 25% of their credits.
|Can my website have adult content?|
No. Adult content (or links to adult or illegal sites) are NOT allowed. This also pertains to your popup. Having this kind of content will cause your account to be removed. For more details, check the ArkHits Terms and Conditions.
|What is the 'Report Site' link?|
This link is in place to help us keep ArkHits as one of the best exchanges online. You use this link to report any websites (you see while surfing) that might violate our Terms and Conditions or notify us if a site is having problems. After we receive an email, we can then notify the site owner.
|How do I promote ArkHits?|

|How do I request a commission?|
Log into your main members page and look about halfway down the page, you will see where it says 'Stats'. Right below that you will see your "Total cash" amount. As soon as you receive the minimum amount required ($20 Free Members) ($15 Upgraded Members) you can "Request Cash". Click on the "Commissions" link on the main menu.
|How long will it take to receive my commission once I request it?|

NO... Do Not use Paid to Join programs or you will get your account suspended and or deleted.
We like to offer referral contests and promos where you can earn cash, credits, banner/text links for bringing in referrals.
99% of all members from a Paid To Join (PTJ) program are inactive and only surf the minimum pages. They only join because they are getting paid to join.
We will be watching to see where all members are coming from especially when we run various referral promos.
