    I submitted one niche blog site to AllTop and it was accepted.

    I tried submitting another blog which is a copy of the other site in every way and form except the articles are focused on a different niche. but, it keeps getting rejected from AllTop.

    Any ideas how I can get the site into it? There are other niche sites that are doing the same thing as me which have been accepted.

    I've never submitted a site to AllTop, but did they provide a reason for the rejection?

    Maybe you used the same site administrator name and they have a submission limit for each person.

    Does the site have sufficient quality and authority?
    Does your site offer alternative content to others sites in that niche?

    the automatic email is this:

    Although we can't provide a specific reason why we could not include your site, these are the most common reasons:

    • There was an error reading the feed
    • Our server was unable to read the feed within 20 seconds
    • The site has not been updated recently or on a regular basis
    • Posts in your feed do not have a date/time (a valid pubDate tag)
    • There is not enough original content on the site
    • The general quality of the site does not meet our standards
    • The site is primarily promoting a business
    • There is no appropriate Alltop topic
    • The site is not in English

    Doesnt make sense. My site has lots of long great articles. My clone site in a different niche is the exact same but sells a different product and it got accepted first time.

    If you're certain that you meet the other requirements, then perhaps the site was down when they were checking it, in which case you could submit it again to see what happens. Of course, before you do, you might want to check everything off of that list they sent you in order to improve your chances of getting approved.

    i've sent it in 4 times and always rejected. i even sent an email to the company to ask why it is being rejected but no one has responded. this is just lame because my competitors are getting some good link juice from this site and i am not able to get it.
