Frequently Asked Questions
|What is a manual traffic exchange?|
A trafffic exchange is a great way for website owners, small business owners, and opportunity seekers to generate traffic to their websites. The concept is very simple... if you visit my website, I will visit yours!
|How do I get my website shown?|
An easy way to get your website shown is to use GreasedLightningHits surf option. As a free member (Greaser), your site will get shown once for every two pages surfed.
You can upgrade your membership to (Hipster) for a small monthly fee and get your site shown twice time for every three page you surf.
For the best surf/view ratio, upgrade your membership to (Hot-Rodder) and get your website shown one time for every page you surf.
|Can I sign up for more than one membership?|
No. Only one membership per person per IP address is allowed. Signing up for more than one membership is considered theft. Your accounts will be cancelled, and you will lose all credits and any accrued downlines.

|Can I advertise any web page?|

We do allow rotators and we recommend that GreasedLightningHits users consider using a PageSwirl Rotator. This is one of the most user friendly rotators for both exchange user and owner.
If your sites do not follow the rule, not only will your websites be removed, your account may be suspended. Please make sure you check your URLs before you add them! Pop Ups are Allowed, but should be limited to one pop-up and/or exit ad.
|How come I can't delete a website in my site list?|
Make sure you have ZERO % assigned to any URL you are trying to remove from your account. This will allow you to edit and replace any site you wish.
Please note that you will need to make sure that the other sites total your auto-assign mimimun (usually 75%) when you make this change.
|How come I can't use an AOL e-mail address?|
Unfortunately, the AOL has blocked all e-mails coming from our servers. To remedy this, either sign up using a different email account or let AOL know that you want to use your email at GreasedLightningHits.com.
|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.
|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. Greaser members must auto-assign 75% of their credits, Hipster must auto-assign 50% of their credits and Hot-Rodder must auto-assign 25% of their credits.
