Non-Acceptance to the Professional Astrology Web-Ring: [CURRENTLY CLOSED TO NEW MEMBERSHIPS]
SHOULD a site not be accepted to the PA Web-Ring -- even though it seems to meet one or more of the GUIDELINES listed on Professional Astrology Web-Ring Home Page, a concise explanation will be given to any applicant whose site might not be accepted. Your site could be excellent in every way but not necessarily "on theme" with this Ring. In the best interests of all Ring members, the decision of the Ring Master must be final. (Please be advise that we are very, very selective regarding sites that are admitted to Professional Astrology Web-Ring.)
Some reasons for non-acceptance -- in addition to failure to meet Ring's GUIDELINES mentioned in the linked page above -- could include the following:(1) Excessively slow downloads--usually caused by too many graphics, especially on the home page; (2) Too much emphasis on "disciplines" other than Astrology; (3) Poor navigation within the site; (4) Redirects; (5) One-page (or perhaps more) sites which are only ads for astrological services or products. Good astrological content is key; and, (6) An intolerable amount of persistent pop-up's/cookies--common with almost all the so-called free site-hosting services. (If you are a professional astrologer and provide services and/or products for money, you should seriously consider getting your own domain--or at the very least finding one of the better free hosters. More leeway is allowed sites that provide useful free astrological information -- and offer no services or products for sale.)
Recently there has been an influx of applications from sites which claim their "horoscopes/reports" are not computer-generated, but are "hand-written" or "hand-selected" or "hand-prepared." Normally these prove to be operators who use the old "pigeon-hole" or "cook-book" technique. They, instead of a computer program, select from pre-written (copied from other sources and/or written by them) scripts of astrological description (text) stored on a computer, string them together and send reports to customers. Professional Astrology Web-Ring will not accept these types of sites.
Please do not make the mistake of submitting your site prematurely. Many site are rejected because their content is not yet developed. Your site will be accepted or rejected based on its present content, not by what you plan to offer in the future.
You are welcome to re-submit your site if you should wish after the suggested changes necessary for admission to the Professional Astrology Web-Ring are completed. Thank you for your understanding.
