HumorLinks Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my comedy site listed on HumorLinks?

Just go to the following location: - Add a Site

Please remember that each site is allowed only ONE LISTING

COMPLETE SITES ONLY please - no stand-alone "single-page" humor articles will be allowed to have listings in their own right. But "Umbrella" or "Index" pages containing links to such articles WILL be allowed if the number of links and content is substantial enough.

Once your site is listed you may apply for Priority Listing or Logo Listing

How do I change my listing on HumorLinks?

Just go to the following location: - Modify a Site

Bear in mind that HumorLinks reserves the right to decide under which category your site should be listed.

Those with Priority Listing   can change their site's weight to adjust the credits deducted per clickthrough - from 1 credit per clickthrough up to 10 credits per clickthrough. Priority sites with greater weights are listed above those with lower ones. A site owner may adjust the weighting to 0 (zero) which temporarily turns off the site's priority status. The remaining credits are preserved until priority status is reactivated by the site owner increasing the weighting to 1 (one) or more. All priority listings lose their priority status after the credits run out, and return to their normal "free listing" status

Those with Logo Listing can change the URL of their logo, as well as its width and height in pixels. 

What sort of humor sites get rejected by HumorLinks?

Very few. No site will be rejected provided it fulfils the following criteria: -

  1. It should contain mainly humorous content (or links to such content)
  2. It should not contain a large number of broken links
  3. It should not contain a large number pop-up advertising windows
  4. It should not contain any illegal material

What do the red stars mean, and how does my site get on the page?

This average will change over time as visitors submit their votes for the site. The higher the rating, the more stars a site gets (maximum 5) and the brighter and redder the stars will be. Once a site has a rating of 8.4000 or more, it is eligible to be listed on the page.
