We welcome genuine active and participating members - the more the merrier as everyone benefits. The more friends you invite the faster everyone gets likes etc.
Please report any page or site which is offensive, malicious, or breaks our terms of service - we have bonus rewards for being good neighbours on this site, and ZERO TOLERANCE for bad ones!
It is your responsibility to ensure your computers are protected from viruses, trojans, and malware. This is just common sense when using the web and visiting unknown web pages. If you haven't got a virus protection programme get AVG and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, they're good and they're free!

Misuse and Fraud
Unfortunately there are those who try and spoil it for the majority...
Malicious scripting, adult or sexy content, or cheating will get you and your pages immediately banned for life, with all cash and credits zero-ed.
Don't try registering multiple accounts with disposable emails and proxy servers - we will know if you do and accounts will be banned/deleted.
Don't use bots or macros, we will know if you do and you will be banned.
Don't try and cheat our affiliate scheme - we will know if you do and you will be banned.
Accounts that don't demonstrate interactivity for more than 30 days after registration or which are inactive for any period of more than 60 days may be deleted, and/or signup credits and referral commission zero-ed, at our discretion - this site relies on community interaction and members helping each other.

No redirections to other sites or pages (affiliate redirect links are OK) or misleading download pages.
Advertising URL shortening services like ad.fly, Linkbucks, etc are NOT permitted on our exchanges. Bit.ly, and Moreshare are fine

Our content review team will disable page links where issues are present - slow loading, page hangs, or where content has been suspended by page owner or ISP. We will, in most cases, advise you of the reason for any page ban by warning notification, however because of the dynamic nature of the auto-surf operation on the Surf Traffic Echange any pages breaking terms or causing operational hangs will be deleted immediately without notice. The most common removals are for pop-ups, advertising URL shorteners, frame-breakers or adding Facebook or Squidoo pages to the surf traffic exchange
Competitors please see separate section below for details of our requirements.

Payments & Purchases
Referral cash earned can be withdrawn from your account once you have reached the minimum payout threshold (see below) AND your referred members have completed the minimum activity / interactivity to verify their accounts.
From time to time we offer limited time credits to cash exchanges - these are for the conversion of EARNED credits to cash balance, not for converting BOUGHT credits back to cash balances.
Payment withdrawals can be requested from the account page or the affiliate page - please note all requests are subject to manual audit and automated anti-fraud checks - which can take between 4 and 10 days depending on the request. It is the members responsibility to ensure that the PayPal email account provided to us at the time of withdrawal is correct - we take no responsibility for lost payments if the payment information you supplied to us is incorrect.
Purchases of Credits or VIP can only be made from your account balance - you can top up by making payment into your account from PayPal (or convert some credits earned if the facility is available)
Bitcoin transactions have regrettably been suspended for the time being until we find a new payment partner that has a compatible system that can operate with HitsLikesTweets

Affiliates & Referrals
You can use our referral links and banners on traffic generating sites, but not click generating traffic or pay to click sites.
If you need a special size affiliate banner for HitsLikesTweets to get more referrals please contact us and we'll be happy to make one for you (more banners coming soon).
To get credits and cash commissions from referrals, the referred new member must be registered and active - that means a) having real and valid uploaded pages and/or social accounts, and b) exchanging with a reasonable number of other members pages for a reasonable time after signing up. Just registering a new name won't get you paid, introducing active and participating members definitely will.
If you want to register just to earn commissions, that's fine as long as you don't break our terms of use - opening up fake memberships just to get commission will get you banned - we will know if you do!
You can request payment as soon as your earnings reach £ 10.00 and you have been registered on HitsLikesTweets for 60 days. You can do this by using the Withdraw button in the affiliate page. Payments are made by PayPal and requests take 7-10 days to review and process - you will need a PayPal account to receive affiliate payments. PayPal will convert any GBP payments to your local currency, unless you have set up your account to hold balances in other currencies - we can't change this, so please check your PayPal settings
Please be aware that PayPal will deduct a small fee from the remitted amount (approx £0.54, but depending on your country and prevailing PayPal fee rates) - all PayPal fees and exchange rates and fees for conversion to your local currency by PayPal are the responsibility of the affiliate (you) not HitsLikesTweets.
Commissions are not payable where referred, <u>or referrer </u>accounts have been subsequently banned/removed for breaking our terms of service
Commissions are not payable where referred accounts have not been activated or have been removed as a result of nil or minimal activity for more than 60 days since activation.
Bitcoin transactions are excluded from the referral sales commissions program

2) What is a Social Media Exchange?
Think of it as a swap shop for internet promotion - where like-minded people help each other to get more exposure for themselves or their products, services, or causes. Whether you are a band trying to get more fans for your Facebook page, or a business trying to get more traffic to their website, a social exchange is the place to be.

Please spread the word to your friends and contacts and invite them to join, the more people who join this promotion party the bigger the result for everyone. You can even earn cash and more credits doing it! It's so easy - just point them to us using your affiliate refer link (log in and click the Affiliate link at the top of your admin page)
3) How does it work?
The concept couldn't be simpler - it works on the old principle of you scratch my back I'll scratch yours On a social media exchange its more a case of I like your pages and you like mine, I follow you on Twitter , you follow me and so on, but multiplied by many times over.

The programming to make this happen across many social networks is actually quite complex , but we hope we have made it look and feel incredibly easy, with straight forward screens and a nice cheerful layout so everyone can join in.
4) Can I earn money as an affiliate as well as credits?
Yes very definitely - we offer very generous rewards for introducing new members using your affiliate links and banners - on top of your Bonus Credits we pay a cash fee for every referred, registered and active signup, and offer a great percentage sales commission on their purchases from HitsLikesTweets. You can withdraw funds (via PayPal) once you reach just £10.00 . Check the Affiliates and login pages for details of current commissions, your affiliate refer link and promotional tools.



Competitor social exchange sites - please see seperate FAQ regarding eligability for cash and commission payments..



Please read Terms of Service FAQ for full details of affiliate terms.


5) Can I get a swap my credits for cash?
No, due to high numbers of fraud attempts the Credits to Cash exchange has been withdrawn - for the convenience of our members we have replaced this with the ability to buy VIP Membership Days with Credits (on the VIP page) . HitsLikesTweets is not and has never been a Pay To Click site - it is a social exchange and we want to keep it that way.

Members can still earn high referral and sales commissions, and withdraw cash balances in the usual way
6) Can you guarantee a certain number of hits/likes/views for my pages?
The number of hits/likes views on your pages depends on many factors over which we have no control including: the numbers of members active, the level you have set your CPC, numbers of credits you have, the country where you site is located, and whether members want to like/view/follow etc.



Because most our members are from the English speaking community an English language mainstream interest website is likely to get a much better response rate than say a niche specialism page in Japanese or Arabic.

Unlike many competitors we don't use any bots or automation to falsely like pages - likes are from real people who have the power of choice. If your site looks trashy or spammy they will probably skip it. A well designed mainstream page or site is likely to get fast/many likes.
7) I am not based in the UK - can I join?
Yes absolutely - we welcome members from all over the world though you will find predominantly UK-based English speaking members here, great if your market is aimed at the UK or you need more views/likes/follows from UK.


Please see FAQ re foreign language pages for details of our language policy.
8) My site is not in English - can I add it?
Usually - we have no objection to foreign language pages, providing the content is real and varied and you have set your geo-targeting to your own target country.
Non-English Foreign language sites geo-targeted for All Countries may be removed or re-targeted.



No non-English banners are permitted - don't put them, they will be removed and you will lose the credits you paid.



Please be aware that this is a UK & English exchange site so most of our members will be English speaking - we're famous in the UK for being lazy when it comes to other languages so please don't expect a massive response from our members if your website is about your favourite horse and it's entirely in Mongolian, even if you have provided a translate button. We have absolutely nothing against Mongolian horses, it's just common sense!



ALL pages must conform to our terms of service and restrictions (see FAQ above). We will review all foreign language content and suspend any which we believe may be in breach of our restrictions, including banners, or detrimental to overall operation or enjoyment for our members and commercial advertising partners our decision is final. No Credits refunds are given if your content is suspended or removed

9) Where's the Affiliate link gone?
If you can't see the Affiliate link in the top navigation bar our affiliate system is temporarily down for maintenance - check back again in a few hours.


In very rare cases this may be down for up to three days for major system changes, apologies for nay slight inconvenience.
10) I run a similar social exchange site - do you allow competitors pages and banners?
Owners of competitor social exchanges or social marketing sites should contact us before registering and we will be happy to discuss the possibility of reciprocal arrangements for mutual benefit.

If you register and add your pages without contacting us you risk your pages and account being banned by our software or manual reviewers - so talk to us, we are very reasonable and if you are an established and popular exchange or service we are usually very happy to do a deal

Please note that competitors are only eligible for only referral credits, NOT for referral cash and commission payouts unless previously agreed and confirmed in writing by us.

Referral link pages, banners, or forwarders to competitor exchanges are not permitted by any members. Any such pages or banners will be removed - no credits or refunds.

11) Is my data safe?
Yes as far as reasonably possible, we use secure data servers for your information hosted by one of the world's leading reputable hosting companies, no data is physically handled or held in paper form. We will never disclose or pass on your information to any third party unless required by due process of law.
12) Are you really based in the UK?
Yes, our office is in Kent - the 'Garden of England' - tucked down in the south east of the UK, and a pretty pleasant place to live and work.
13) Is this system safe - I don't want to get my page or social account banned?
HitsLikesTweets complies with social networks policies at the time of writing.


Our social exchange adds hits likes and followers organically and naturally over a period of time. These arrive from real people, our members, not from HitsLikesTweets (though of course every page gets a like from us too!) so the promotion has the same result pattern as from traditional marketing.


We do not sell hits, likes, or followers - and we strongly recommend that you don't buy them from anyone however good the offer sounds. These are usually generated automatically by bots from false accounts - Twitter, Facebook et have very powerful software that can detect bots by the footprint of high/fast/sudden traffic volumes they leave on your account, which will likely get you noticed and your page banned.



Using a social media exchange like HitsLikesTweets is a much more sensible and safer option for increasing your social presence.
14) Can I use my HitsLikesTweets referral link on traffic generating and auto-surf sites ?
Yes, definitely - in fact we recommend it! Go to the Affiliates page for tools to quickly insert your affiliate link into the most popular traffic exchanges to maximise your referral, commission, and credits earnings.


Please note we do not permit referral link use on Pay To Click (PTC) or auto-click generation sites.
15) Can I use my HitsLikesTweets refer link or banner on other Social Media Exchange stes
Yes, we have no objection but some Social Exchanges prohibit links to competitors in their terms and conditions so please check their terms first to avoid any problems.
16) You have banned me/ refused my website/social page/banner - can I get a refund for the credits?
Sorry we don't give refunds of credits or cash for any page, site, banner that is blocked, banned or breaks our terms of service. Or for any member banned for trying to cheat.
17) Can I have more than one account?
No, we have recently had to restrict accounts to one per person/IP to help prevent cheating attempts. A perfect example of the few spoiling it for the many - to those legitimate people who share a computer and had a genuine need for a separate account we say sorry.



Each page/site/banner can only be added once per account to avoid duplication.
18) Do you give refunds of credits if a social network ceases exchanging?
Sorry, no - social networks can change their terms and interfaces without notice, so we make no guarantee of continuance of any networks exchanges on HitsLikesTweets, and can give no refunds of credits or credit purchases if this happens.



Our services are offered in good faith, in the circumstances prevailing at the time of registration.
19) Do you have any restrictions on which sites/pages/banners I can add?
The following types of sites pages and banners are NOT permitted on HitsLikesTweets:

NO porn, adult, or similar content or links (including provocative/sexual page titles, escorts, glamour/booty pages, sexy girl/boy and sex dating sites), casino and gambling (some bingo and established lottery sites are OK), med sales and quackery, hacking/cracking/warez or any pirate goods, pirate pyramid/Ponzi and similar schemes, race hate or similar, extreme political, in-your-face religion, firearms (except antiques), banner, advert, or affiliate 'farms', pixel advertising or iFrame farms - or anything generally offensive or likely to bring this site into disrepute.

Where duplications occur we will give preference to either competitor admins who a) permit our pages on their exchange sites and/or b) referring member who first published page on HitsLikesTweets. Our decision is final on matters of page duplication.

HitsLikesTweets is for a general and commercial audience, keep it clean, keep it nice people, don't get banned, thank you.

We reserve the right to remove without warning banners where excessive duplication of the same destination site will be detrimental to overall viewing quality and our commercial advertisers - such as multiple iterations of the same banner with different affiliate referral links. Where duplications occur we will give preference to either admins who a) permit our banners on their sites and/or b) referring member who first published the banner on HitsLikesTweets. Our decision on preference is final!

20) Are you part of the Social Networks?
No, HitsLikesTweets is not affiliated with or endorsed by any of the featured networks - we are an independent provider of social media promotional services.
21) I want to leave HitsLikesTweets - what do I need to do?
We're sorry to hear that, however leaving is straightforward - just 3 simple steps



1. Delete your pages, banners and social accounts

2. Contact us using the contact form advising us you want to delete your account

3. We may then carry out a security check to verify you are the registered user before we delete the account.



IMPORTANT Once a membership account is closed it is deleted and cannot be recovered - if you wanted to rejoin you would need to register again.
All credits, cash earned, VIP days and affiliate commission entitlement are zeroed at deletion - these cannot be reclaimed later so if you have affiliate commission due for £10.00 or more please make a Withdraw request from the Affiliate page BEFORE you request account deletion.

Closing your membership account when your cash balance is less than £10.00 will lose any commissions earned.




Please let us know why you are leaving - it helps us improve our site and services, thank you.
22) Can I add an RSS feed URL as a page?
Yes, subject to the usual content restrictions - please run it through feed burner first to ensure that it can be viewed properly by all members and they will be able to see text and images - if you enter a raw feed they will just see the XML code!
23) Is this really free - do I have to buy credits?
No absolutely not - this exchange is FREE and you can use this site for FREE for as long as you want, with good results. We offer Credits and VIP packs on a commercial basis purely so those who want to boost their exposure quickly can do so without spending time earning free credits by surfing and liking, following, surfing other members pages etc.
24) I'm not getting Twitter followers on my account - any ideas?
Possible Causes

1. Have you set your Twitter to require manual confirmation of followers? This will stop you getting followed by our members. Check your Twitter account.

2. You have no profile picture (required under our terms!) - accounts with profile images and description will get more follows

3. Your credits are being used up for your other social exchanges instead (set credits per click on other exchanges lower

3. Set your credits per click higher for Twitter follow

4. You don't have enough credits - earn or buy more credits

25) If I add my affiliate link page or banner will it show HitsLikesTweets as a referrer?
We use anonymous referral system on our Social Network and Traffic Exchanges which has a 99% success rate. Unfortunately many banner ads which link to affiliate programs already contain a forwarding link - adding an anonymous refer link on top automatically can fall foul of Google Chromes multiple redirection blocker.



We recommend you use a referrer replacement service ( these are available commercially online.) where possible for your banner links, but it is your responsibility to test the outcome when clicked ,using Google Chrome, to ensure it works OK. br />

26) I'm not getting many Facebook Likes - any ideas?
Possible Causes

1. Check your Facebook account settings to ensure fans are permitted

2. You have no profile picture (required under our terms!) - accounts with profile images, header images and content description will get more follows

3. Your credits are being used up for your other social exchanges instead (set credits per click on other exchanges lower

3. Set your credits per click higher for Facebook Like

4. You don't have enough credits - earn or buy more credits

27) Will HitsLikesTweets exchange generate more sales for my website?
Probably not directly - you'll get more page hits, views, shares so you will certainly increase exposure and awareness and this may pan out to more sales indirectly - that's the potential of social reach. If you have an attractive mainstream product, or offer likely to appeal to those using social media in the UK, and it features on the surf exchange or banner advertising then yes, you may get some direct sales. Be aware that this is not a service designed to increase sales, only social media profile.
28) Are you putting stats on your exchange?
Yes, general stats should be available in 2013. We should have set them up back at the beginning but we had other priorities at the time to programme (affiliate system/stats etc ) and frankly we completely underestimated both the interest in general stats and the headaches it would cause us in trying to install them afterwards. Mea Culpa


STOP PRESS: Real time Liked/Followed Today, Active Membership and Joined Yesterday/Last Month statistics are now displayed direct form our servers on our login home and splash pages.
29) What is a Bonus Credits Notification and why would I want it?
We are always trying to improve HitsLikeTweets - from time to time we like to let you know about new website features and offers, and just so it makes it more fun we include a FREE bonus credits coupon code to give a little something back. Subscribers also get exclusive Bonus Credits surprises. That's it , nothing fancy and we promise No Spam, not ever!
30) How do I find the URL of my original Tweet, so I can Retweet it?
1. Got to Twitter.com, login and go to your homepage.

2. Click Tweets and locate your original Tweet

3.Click on the Tweet (you can click anywhere in the Tweet) and it will expand to a slightly larger size and display more information on the bottom about when the Tweet was posted.

4.Click on \'Details\' next to the Tweet's date and time stamp.

5.The Tweet URL will now show up in your browser's address bar.

6.Copy the URL and paste it into the URL field in your Tweet/ReTweet page on HitsLikesTweets

31) Do I have to buy VIP Membership for this to work?
No, HitsLikesTweets works very well with a Standard free membership. VIP Days allow professional marketers and people who want quick results to jump their pages and sites to the front of the queue for a small fee. At least 80% of our members have the Standard free membership and get great results by simply spending a few minutes each day earning free Credits from other members pages.

Members can also now buy VIP Days with their earned Credits - a feature we introduced by popular demand
32) How do I report an offensive site or broken link? What happens next?
We review all pages regularly especially new members pages, but occasionally a rogue page slips through. We ask all members to help us keep this site clean, legal, relevant and fun by reporting pages that don't comply with our terms of service. Being a 'good neighbour' can earn you bonus credits - your reports are confidential. All exchange pages have quick REPORT links either on the page or on the members exchange box.


We will review the report and link within 24 hours and take whatever action is necessary. Owners of offensive sites and serious terms infringements can expect an immediate ban, you have been warned!


Broken links pages and those with minor terms infringements are usually temporarily disabled, and the member informed of the issue so they can resolve.

33) How do I get paid my commission, and when?
You can request payment as soon as your earnings reach £ 10.00 by using the Withdraw button in the affiliate page. Payments are made by PayPal in GBP and requests take approx a week to review and process - you will need a PayPal account to receive affiliate payments (Payza coming soon).



Active Members

Affiliate commission is only payable for active memberships - active members are those who have verified/activated their accounts and are using their accounts in a reasonable manner which is indicative of normal use patterns - numbers of exchanges, own pages or social accounts added, regular log ons etc. We do not pay commissions for 'ghost' members, members who have been subsequently banned, or where member accounts have been dormant and removed by us, or where they have closed their accounts within 3 months of joining.



PayPal Fees

Please be aware that PayPal will deduct a small fee from the remitted amount (approx £0.54, but depending on your country) - all PayPal fees and exchange rates and fees for conversion to your local currency by PayPal are the responsibility of the affiliate (you) not HitsLikesTweets.



Tax

You are also responsible for declaring and paying any tax or other government levy on your affiliate income ( commission payments are made from the UK, part of the EEC, and we are a non VAT registered business)



Competitor Information

Competitor sites who register with us are only eligible for referral Credits, not for cash and commission payments unless previously formally agreed by us in advance in writing in advance - see FAQs re competitors for requirements.

34) Can I add other social exchange sites referral banners and links?
No. Referral link pages, banners, or forwarders to competitor exchanges are not permitted, and any such pages or banners will be removed - no credits or refunds, and if you try again your account will be permanently banned.

If you run your own social exchange or social marketing service and want to advertise or add pages on HitsLikesTweets you must contact us first - if you don't your pages and account may be banned by our software or human reviewers so please talk to us - we're open to reasonable suggestions for mutual benefits from established and popular competitor sites. See separate FAQ re Competitors Sites .

35) Can I use HitsLikesTweets on an iPad, iPhone, or other smartphone or tablet?
Yes - in most cases functionality is the same as using it on your PC, however because of the way some tablets and phones open and close sites using tabs instead of pages, you may find that Surf Exchange and some other types of exchanges will hang.

Older browsers may not display all functions of member pages - we recommend using HitsLikesTweets on a desktop or laptop PC or Mac using a modern browser such as Google Chrome or latest IE for best performance, functionality, and appearance. Browsers with add-ons for blocking Flash or adverts or similar may affect functionality.
36) Can I add Facebook or other Social Media pages to the Surf Traffic section?
Facebook, Twitter, Squidoo and Fiverr pages have frame-breaking scripts and are not permitted on the Surf Traffic exchange. Add social media pages to the appropriate exchanges only please, thanks
37) I notice you have lots of international members too - I only want UK likes, how do I do that?
When you add your pages just select United Kingdom in the Geo-targeting field


HINT: Geographical or gender targeting will reduce speed and numbers of Likes Follows etc. For Facebook and Twitter especially we highly recommend leaving the geo-targeting setting as 'All Countries' for maximum performance.
38) My page title says **Prohibited Content** and status says BANNED - why is that?
Sorry but your page content has contravened our restrictions regarding permissible content, and has been removed from the exchange by our content management team. If in doubt please check the Terms of Service and other relevant FAQs for details of page restrictions, before you add a page. Being reserved Brits with a tendency towards stiffness of the upper lip it's no surprise our exchange is significantly more selective about what content is allowed - ALL pages must be suitable for general viewing, and sit comfortably alongside commercial advertising partners content, thank you.
39) You've changed the sign up / bonus credits amount - why is that?
We amend our Credits Bonuses up and down from time to time at our discretion in order to excite activity by new members, attract more new member sign-ups , or simply to reward sign-ups at certain seasonal times of the year. We also amend Credits Bonuses in order to preserve both free exchange operation, and site activity for the whole membership both of which are are directly related to the amount of free credits in circulation.
40) How do I add or renew a Banner Advert?
You have to be a VIP member to add Banner Adverts. Banners run in our page footers or surf exchange header in rotation - all banners have equal weighting.

Please check our terms of use carefully to ensure your banner complies regarding design content and destination content (ie no adult, gambliing etc)
Banners must be .jpg, .png, or .gif only and measure 468 x 60 pixels


Login to your account and access the banner section from the left Site Manager menu. Adding or renewing will require at least 250 Credits in your account.



If you don't have sufficient credits you can either earn more free credits by liking/ viewing/following other members pages, or buy credits booster packs by clicking the Buy Credits link on the header menu bar.



HINT: You can quickly add Credits by the following methods

- Refer new members using your referral link

- Accessing the free daily and weekly bonus credits



When your banner expires it will be deleted from your account 7 days after expiry if not renewed within that time. Any banner causing page hangs or display fails may be deleted without warning by our web team so please check operation of banner once added by refreshing your Manage Banners page



Add more credits to a banner by opening the Manage Banners screen and clicking the Edit link on the right of the banner - you can now add more credits providing you have sufficient Credits in your account( at least 250 - 1 day)



Competitors - we are usually receptive to a FREE like-for-like exchange of banners if you are willing to display our banner on your exchange too. Contact us for more details
41) How quickly can I get Likes and Followers - I need them fast?
HitsLikesTweets is designed to grow your social media organically in a way which does not cause account problems with Facebook Twitter etc. Unlike many other systems and some exchanges who use fake accounts and bots, our members are 99% (bound to be some who slip through the net) real people - and so likes hits and tweaks come only when they are active on their computers.
It's a slower but steadier and safer method.



IMPORTANT Buying Likes and Followers WILL give you faster likes - but it may also get your Facebook page or Twitter account suspended, especially if 5 million likes from Pakistan appear overnight on a UK page with nil content or structure.


We recommend you only buy from reputable sellers on the GigStation and choose those with the best buyer feedback rating.

Research the seller, read their feedback and the small print carefully, and don't put all your eggs in one basket - buying from multiple sellers in smaller amounts is much safer.


42) FACEBOOK PAGES & LIKES Hints & Tips
When adding Facebook pages only add your page URL, remove any ? or characters that follow it.

Duplication of pages may cause members to Like a page then unlike it accidentally - only post your page once.

IMPORTANT You cannot Like when using Facebook as a Page User, only as a Profile.

If you have more than 1 Facebook profile you can choose which account to like others pages with but only once - sign in to your preferred Facebook account before you start liking .

Use the Facebook wall share feature on the Bonus Credits page to get free credits for sharing ours or our sponsors link on your Facebook wall

Don't add Facebook pages to the Surf Exchange - they contain frame-breaking script - page will be auto-skipped but the CPC fee will still be deducted!

Don't post any pages offering to sell Facebook Likes, this breaks Facebook term of service and as such are not permitted on this site.

If you want to Like a page but don't want content showing in your newsfeed click LIKE button on the Facebook page, move your cursor away from the button and when it has changed to LIKED then quickly move your cursor over the button and when the menu opens untick 'Show in Newsfeed' then close the Facebook page - you only have a few seconds to do this so you need to be quick. You can also carry out the same operation from your own Facebook page to stop liked pages showing in your newsfeed

43) Your Active Members number just went down suddenly - is everyone leaving?
No, our Active Members live feed statistic can drop when we do a bit of account housekeeping by...

a) removing accounts that were set up but never activated, or were set up with disposable email accounts

b) removing dormant accounts with nil activity .

b) banning accounts who try to cheat for credits or commission
These actions are essential to retain the integrity of HitsLikesTweets and to ensure that our statistics are accurate.

44) I can't access your website - I'm getting a 403 Error - 'You are not authorised to view this site'.
- Your IP or Gateway has been blocked by our ISP due to it's presence on a spam or nuisance blacklist.

- Your IP has been blocked by our web security team following cheat attempts .

45) I liked a Facebook page but it didn't verify the like and give me the credits - why is that?
This can result from one of the following..

a) You tried to Like the page as a Facebook Page user - you can only like as a Profile user - go to the cog wheel in the menu at the top right of your Facebook Page and change back to your profile - your Like should verify OK

b) You double clicked in error and accidentally Liked/Unliked the page at the same time. This may lock you out of that page due to our like / unlike protection

c) The target Facebook page may have a problem or the user has changed their privacy country or age group settings - if you continue having issues with Liking the page please report the problem to us with details of the target page.


46) Why can't I see banners/my banners displaying in the footer or on the Manage Banners page?
This is usually caused by one of the following;

a) You have an AdBlock extension installed on your Chrome or Firefox browser - please disable this for HitsLikesTweets by clicking the red hand symbol at the top right of your browser and selecting 'Don't run on pages on this domain', then 'Exclude' on the window. That should resolve the problem

b) The banner URL has been changed, removed, or blocked by the advertising provider, You can check this by copying the banner URL into your browser address bar, if the banner does not display it has probably been removed or changed or the URL has been entered incorrectly. If the banner has been blocked there is usually a message displayed by the advertiser.

c) Your banner URL has been added incorrectly - double check with the original banner source.

d) Your banner has expired - go to My Sites Manager/Banner Ads/Manage Banners, any expired banners will show 'Finished' in red next to them - just add more days/credits to reactivate.

53) Why is your Likes/Followed Today figure always so low?
How high the count is depends not only on the amount of click activity but also on what time of day you normally use our site and where you are in the world.


Our Liked/Followed Today server count resets to zero at 06:00 GMT - so customers in Australia or Singapore using our site in the evening will always see much lower figures than say customers in the USA or Canada in the evening simply because they are viewing the site much earlier in the days count cycle.


We get 4000-6000 Likes/Follows etc on a typical day and this is increasing steadily. Traffic peaks from approx 16:00 GMT on weekdays. If you need more information about our traffic demographics just click the Alexa button in the page footer.
54) Where is the Credits to Cash exchange button?
This was replaced at the last update by the Buy VIP With Credits function, on the VIP page.

Unfortunately because of the high number of fraud attempts we have discontinued the Credits to Cash function - HitsLikesTweets is a social exchange, not a PTC site and we want to keep it that way!


Cash can still be earned from referrals and sales commissions from your referrals, and withdrawn in the usual way

57) 20.01.2014 NEW FEATURES UPDATE - BITCOINS
We are delighted to be able to roll out our latest feature;

- Bitcoins can now be used to pay for Credits and VIP Packs.

We love Bitcoins at HitsLikesTweets and have been champing at the bit to provide this service to our members. Unfortunately developing this service has taken a long time - mainly trying to find a reliable merchant partner who could provide the transactional data to make this work.

More Bitcoins functions are coming soon and we hope to have them live in February 2014.

Affiliates please note Bitcoin transactions are excluded from the referral commission program, and (for the moment at least) affiliate payouts will still be in £ via PayPal
