    Rankings are determined by the completeness of the page, including URL, page title, and the ability to draw and interact with other bloggers in the same category.

  • Why can't I claim my listing?
  • Make sure that our badge or widget is on the same page you added to the directory. Free submissions may be removed by the admin without any notice at any time if they are not good quality.
    Due to the large number of submissions and to prevent spam listings, you are required to either
    1. put OnToplist's badge on your site, or
    2. make a Paypal payment.
    Please note that complying with this requirement does not guarantee directory inclusion. Each submission is reviewed by our editorial staff and only valuable* listings will be added to our directory. Paid submissions are reviewed much faster and the paid submission fee is non-refundable.
