|What is a manual traffic exchange?|

credits by surfing the exchange, viewing other members sites. The other
members are also surfing the exchange and will be viewing your site as
|How do I get my website shown?|
|An easy way to get your website shown is to use GoneClicking surf option. As a free member (Basic), your site will get shown once for every three pages surfed.
You can upgrade your membership to (Pro Angler) for a small monthly fee and get your site shown one time for every two page you surf.
For the best surf/view ratio, upgrade your membership to (Master Angler) and get your website shown eight times for every ten pages you surf. |
|Can I sign up for more than one account?|
|No. You are allowed only one account. Signing up under yourself in an effort
to obtain additional credits is considered theft. You will lose all
accounts, all credits, and your downline.|
|How do I begin earning credits?|
|As a member, you can surf other members websites and earn credits. Or you
can simply purchase credits or earn credits by referring others to Gone
|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.|
|How many visitors will I get to my website if I visit 100 member websites?|
|That depends... basic members earn a 2:1 visitor ratio. If you view 100
member websites, you'll receive 50 page views to your own website. On the
other hand, Pro Anglers (our Pro membership) earn a 1:1 visitor ratio. You
view 100 sites and you'll receive 100 page views to your website.
|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. Basic members must auto-assign 75% of their credits and Pro
Anglers must auto-assign 50% of their credits.
|I live outside the U.S. Can I still sign up for a Gone Clicking account?|
|Yes. However, your websites will have to be written in English. I'm sure you
can understand that it would be a waste of everybody's credits if members
can't understand what your website is all about.|
|Can my website contain "pop up" windows?|
|Only one (1) pop-up window is allowed per website. This also applies to
pop-unders. Some affiliate programs use multiple popups. If you're promoting
one of these programs, your site will not be accepted. Moreover, we do not
allow MS window-type popup or alert message boxes, such as those generated
by software like "Opt-In Generator". These are separate windows that need to
be closed before you can continue surfing.
|Can I use "Fly-In-Ads"?|
|Can I use "Fly-In-Ads"?
|Can I use "Slide-In-Ads"?|
|Yes. They're okay because when the site leaves, they leave too. Whereas,
fly-in-ads are a separate window that has to be closed before continuing
your surfing sessions.
|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 Gone Clicking Terms and
|Can I use a rotator?|
|Yes and No! Some of the rotator programs out there we have no problem
allowing (like PageSwirl.com). On the other hand, there are some rotators we
don't want to allow. We treat every member as a valued customer and trust
that each of them will police their own rotator on what we allow and don't
allow. If we find a member that is using a rotator to break our rules, then
we will be forced to remove either the rotator or the member.
|What if my site can't be loaded into frames?|
|If a website breaks out of frames, it CAN NOT be listed in the Gone Clicking

how active they are. It's also based on how much you surf and how many
credits you have applied to your websites. Being an active member or one who
uses our service often, means you will generate traffic to your website much
