How come my credits don't show after I have surfed?

Many users have auto assigned 100% of credits earned. This means that all credits earned are added to your sites and not your unused credits pool.

To add credits to unused change the auto assign weight on your sites on the 'Assign credits' page.

If you have weighted a total of 75%, 0.25 of each
credit earned are added to unused credits and
the rest, 0.75 credits are added to your site(s).

Mystery credits are also auto assigned the same way as credits. If you have 100% auto assigned no unused credits will be added.

How can I earn credits?

The easiest way to earn credits is to surf for them. To surf for credits you need to log in and click the big "Start Surfing 1:1" in the member menu.

You will then start seeing pages and the surfbar.

Once the surfbar counter has gone down from 20 and shows a go, click the correct image as stated on the surfbar.

Once you see the next page you will get a message on how many credits you earned for the last page view.

What are Hotlinks?

Hotlinks are just like banners. They are shown in the same way, the difference being that they are textlinks and not images.

How do I get hotlink credits?

When you are surfing for traffic you earn 1 hotlink credit for each page you visit.

You can also convert usual surfing credits to
hotlink credits on the hotlink admin page.
Under 'My hotlinks' after you have logged in.

What is credits?

1 credit is that same as one visitor to your site.
For each credit you earn you can exchange it for one visitor to your page. Note: targeted traffic can cost a little more per visit.

How does the surfbar work?

When you start surfing you will see the surfbar in top of the window. The surfbar will show different images or links where you need to click in order to confirm your visit.

When the counter has reached zero and showing a green GO text, click the number that is stated on the surfbar.

What are mystery credits?

Mystery Credits are pages appearing randomly that shows how many credits you won.

The page will show how many credits you won and you have to follow the instructions on the page to correctly collect the prize.

Click the correct icon that appears in the box at the mystery credit page, and you'll immediately get a confirmation if the confirmation was ok or not. After confirming the prize you can continues surfing without waiting until the counter reach zero.

Do not attempt to reload a mystery credit page with your browser: if you do this you'll simply loose your prize risking an account suspension.
