Disqualifications for the star:
Top 100 counter has been resized
Top 100 counter has link disabled.
site artificially inflates page views
sites with links labeled as Link
sites with links labeled as Reciprocal
sites with so many links on a page
they are not understandable.
sites with so many graphic links on
their home page it looks cluttered
sites that purposely create home page
links so that web visitors might not notice them.
sites using Link Farm software
sites hiding links from search engine
the Top 100 graphic appears more than
three scroll clicks from the top of the page.
If a site has a Top
100 counter, web visitors can visit the Top 100 and see how well it
performs in relation to other sites in the region. There is
usually a reason why some sites are visited more than others.
