    The Pro Zone is for blogs of a more professional nature, commercial porn blogs and in general those containing higher levels of paid advertsing. E-zines with a commercial leaning will also be moved to the Pro Zone.

    The decision to move a blog from one zone to another is at the discretion of the ABH team and is on a case-by-case basis. The judgement is made taking into account the content of the site, number and position of advertisements and regularity/nature of updates to content/posts.

  17. Acceptability Of Users/Sites/Posts For Inclusion In The Service

    The following clauses are guidelines only. Each site/Member's membership/registration(s) will be considered individually, the only exception to this being the automatic exclusion criteria. The decision of ABH is final, you may appeal to admin@adultbloghub.com if you feel you have been excluded from the Service unfairly. However it is our duty to ensure the site meets certain standards and stays within the law so please remember that if you choose to appeal against exclusion from the Service.

    Automatic Exclusion Criteria for Exclusion From The Service

    1. Sites depicting, soliciting or encouraging unlawful behaviour of any kind.
    2. Sites constructed wholly as online stores, or online stores presented as blogs. Sites created wholly or predominantly for the purposes of promoting the sale of goods or services may be deleted. Where necessary their owners may have their other site(s) on ABH deleted and/or be banned from registering further sites.
    3. Sites whose content is password protected. You may password protect individual posts, however in order to comply with our requirement of a link back to ABH we cannot allow blogs where only members/readers with access to the site password can access the main and/or entry page of your blog.
    4. Sites which load pop-up or pop-under advertising on loading their home page or any other pages linked from ABH - e.g. individual post pages
    5. Sites hosting malware, adware, spyware, viruses or trojans.

    Possible Grounds for Exclusion From The Service, Or transfer to The Pro Zone

    1. Sites containing a high proportion of advertising to content. This will be decided on a case by case basis, taking into account the type of content, volume of advertising and placement of advertising.
    2. Sites containing a high proportion of hyper links to content. This will be decided on a case by case basis, taking into account the type of links, volume of links and placement of links. Sites designed primarily as "hook sites" are almost certain to be excluded.
    3. Sites who consist predominantly of content copied/quoted from other sites. ABH encourages attribution of content, but cannot accept that "scraping" of another author's work constitutes content for a blog in the ABH Classic Zone. In these instances sites will be either moved to the Pro Zone or deleted from our listings.
    4. Users who register posts or sites purporting to be one site and pointing to a different site may have their post(s), site(s) or user account(s) disabled or deleted as we see fit.

    Remember, Automatic Exclusion from the service is just what it says. Automatic and final.

    The possible grounds for exclusion are not exhaustive and are subject to change (by ABH). Our best advice to you is to use your common sense. The Service is intended for Bloggers to register their sites and posts, thereby increasing their readership.

  18. Contravention Of This ToS

    Please report any contraventions of the ToS to admin@adultbloghub.com.
