Questions regarding functionality:

What is a hit exchange?

Hit exchanges are used to advertise your website. It is simply a lot of people who sign up as members, list their websites, and then spend time viewing (surfing) each others' websites. While surfing other websites, you earn "hit" credits. These credits allow your site to go into circulation so that other surfing members will see your site. To earn credits for your site, you must either surf other member's sites- view 4 sites and get 3 views back (it's called a 4:3 ratio), or purchase traffic credits. 1 credit= 1 visit by another member to your website.

How do I surf?

To surf, you simply log on to BionicHits.com (after becoming a member) and click on the surf button. This opens a window which is controlled by BionicHits.com. After that, you wait for the timer to count down 6 seconds, and then click on the matching image next to "Click". That's how the surfing works.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

Is BionicHits.com a manual hit exchange?

Yes. BionicHits.com has no automatic surfing functionality. This provides our members with quality advertising.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

Is there a minimum surfing requirement?

Yes. In order to activate an account, each member must surf an initial 20 sites. This first surfing experience can sometimes run slower than normal. Once the initial 20 sites have been surfed, the account is active and no additional surfing is ever required to stay active.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

Where do the hits come from?

They come from users like you. Users can earn hits in 3 ways. The first is by surfing other members' sites through a link we provide. Second, you can earn hits by getting referrals. A referral is someone you have given your special link (we provide you with the link) and the referral signs up using it. That referral is put in your downline (you can read about downlines below). Third, you can purchase hits. The more hits you buy, the more inexpensive they are.

How many members does BionicHits.com have?

The number of members increases every day. As of August 2014, BionicHits.com has approximately 21,500 members.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

What type of sites are allowed?

We are a family friendly site. We do not allow any sites that may be offensive or unsuitable for younger children. Sites with links or banners to unsuitable material are also prohibited. Sites that break out of the BionicHits.com surfing frames, or have more than one pop-up are not permitted. Any users found advertising such sites may have their accounts closed or fined hit credits. Please visit our Terms and Conditions page for more information.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

How do you control the kind of sites that are seen on BionicHits.com?

Sites that are breaking our Terms and Conditions are detected in two ways. First, the management of BionicHits.com periodically spends time surfing to find problems. Second, and most importantly, our surfing members can report any site they suspect is breaking our terms and conditions. This is done through a link on our surf bar that says "Report this Site".

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

When surfing, how long do I need to stay on each site?

Currently we have a 6 second timer. This should allow enough time for the site to load. Make sure your own site loads within this time frame or you may lose the interest of your visitor.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

How many sites can I list?

Up to 5 sites. When you have hits available, these sites will be shown randomly to our surfing members. Make sure all of your sites meet our current Terms and Conditions to avoid having your account paused.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

Do you have other advertising opportunities?

Yes we do. There is banner and text advertising available. You can convert credits into ipressions and submit 5 banners and 5 text ads to assign these impressions to.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

What is a downline and how do I build it?

A downline is when you refer someone, and that person refers someone. Here at Bionichits.com, you earn traffic from 2 full levels of referrals. Even though you did not refer the last person, or even the second to last person, they are linked to you by someone you referred. Free members earn 6 credits for every 100 sites viewed by direct referrals, and 6 credits for each 100 sites viewed by your referrals' referrals. BHPROs (upgraded BionicHits members) earn 15 credits per 100 views of referrals on both levels.

This downline will not build itself, you need to refer at least one person to get it started, and that person must refer someone as well. The more you refer, the bigger your downline will be and the more people will see your site. To build a downline, promote your BionicHits.com referral link in other hit exchanges, message boards, forums, email ads, etc., or simply tell your friends to sign-up through your link.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

How many hits will I earn from my referrals?

As a Free Member, you receive 1 credit for every 10 credits your direct referrals earn. Pro Members get even more rewards. Login to get the details.

How many accounts can I have?

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

Why do I need to see 20 sites before my account can be activated?

This exchange is for people who wish to actively promote their websites, by seeing other sites you are helping BionicHits.com deliver traffic.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

If I purchase hits do I still have to surf the initial 20 times?

Yes, this is required of everyone to ensure the success of the program.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

How long will it take to use all my hits?

This depends on the number of people actively surfing and how much they surf. BionicHits.com can not guarantee how fast hits will be used. Periodically, BionicHits.com will hold surfing promotions that markedly increase the amount and speed hits are used.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List

Do I have to keep surfing every once in a while to keep my site active?

No, once you have surfed the initial 20 your account will be activated. But, the more you surf the more hit credits you earn.

Back to FAQ Quick Reference List
