This is how Host My Post rates publisher sites. Sites can have class from A (top rated) to G (worst rated). Ratings are estimations based on your site traffic (Alexa Rank at the moment) and "expected PageRank of the page, where articles are published", they are updated by bot on periodic basis.
You can refer to the table below, which represents Site Class and "our calculated PageRank".
- Class A - PR 5 or higher
- Class B - PR 4
- Class C - PR 3
- Class D - PR 2
- Class E - PR 1
- Class F - PR 0
- Class G - Not Indexed
Please Note: Sites in "G" class can't publish Host My Post articles.
If you have good traffic on your web site (the fact we, obviously, like) - then the Class of your web site will be higher.
When you create an article campaign (Advertisers / Add article) you do not have to specify pay-per-post value for all of the publisher site classes. If, for example, you set 10 pts for C-class and leave all the other fields blank then publications on better rated sites (A-class and B-class) will still be rewarded with 10 points and publications on lower rated sites (D-, E- and F-class) will not be rewarded at all and thus will not decrease article budget (in fact, we do not even register such a publications, if you make the content publicly available we can't stop people from reposting it for free at any site). Obviously system won't let you to set lower price for higher class because it doesn't make any sense.
