Idea 21: Joining A Top Site

A Top Site is a site you can join (nearly always free) which is basically a list of sites which are ordered by the number of "votes" they have received. Most Top Sites are on particular subjects (example: Top 100 Education Sites, Top 100 Download Sites, etc.). As far as I know, nobody has yet produced a directory of top sites on all subjects, so if you're interested in joining one, then you'll need to hunt it down with Google or another search engine.

Each member of the Top Site gets their votes, by placing a special HTML voting link on their web site, and asking their visitors to click it. The more people who click on this voting link, the more votes they get.

Members want to gain as many votes as possible, because the more votes they get, the higher up on the Top Site they are listed - and sites listed near the top of the Top Site tend to get more visitors back.

As well as joining an existing Top Site, it also possible to start your own (see Idea 92: Starting A Top Site).
