Frequently Asked Questions
What is @Who?
@Who is a Web 2.0 Wiki Style Portal where users can add profiles top. In fact @Who is the world's first all-in-one Web 2.0 world index of who's @.
We found it difficult to find who was @"something" on the Internet, having to use many different sites for the same purpose, being restricted on what, how and when we could do it. Lengthy searching processes and difficult forms, and so we created the @Who Portal.
@Who is one of the websites n a series of many exciting Web 2.0 Portals we are developing for the community.
As people place profiles, brands and photos, you will be able to discover new and exciting stuff, and our simple book-like scroll functions allow you to browse interesting profiles and exciting categories.
@Who Ad portal allows anyone to place a FREE profile or brands profile. You choose the profile category and because of the portal's smart programming, your profile hould appear more relevant when people search for information on search engines like Google, Yahoo and MSN.
How much does it cost ?
It is 100% FREE to place your profile, Brand or Company on the @Who portal
Most of the content is acceptable on the @Who portal, however, please ensure the content is of "QUALITY" content. We DO NOT allow ads that resemble spam or ads that are pornographic in nature.
Exactly what type of ads can I place ?
Our network is family-safe, which means that users are not allowed to place ads which contain adult content. Including but not limiting to photos and links to videos which contain nudity or sexual activities, below is some other examples of unacceptable content:
- Lewd or provocative images
- Crude or indecent language, including adult stories
- Sexual tips or advice
- Sexual fetish sites (e.g. foot fetish content)
- Adult toys or products
- Ads or links to external sites containing adult content
If your ad has content which you wouldn't be comfortable viewing at work or with family members present, then it probably isn't appropriate.

What is "Ad Ranking" ?
Ad Ranking is an algorithm-formulated system (a nerd phrase for mathematical programming) developed by our team of experts.
People can vote for a Profile and this then increases the profile individual ranking. Profile's with a higher ranking will of course rank higher in our search results and other interesting features!
To vote, simply move your mouse over the star rating and click on the rating you wish to give the ad or classified.
NOTE: Please do not try to increase your own ads ranking! Our algorithm uses an advanced formulated system. If it was possible to achieve 10/10, it would take tens of thousands of people and a lot of clicking.
Be patient and honest, make your ad simple but effective, add a few good photos and offer something of value to your clients. This will help to spread the word of your ad and therefore increase its ranking.
