    I was just wondering if "Top Sites" lists are treated as bad as FFA sites by search engines...anyone know?

    I can think of one "top 100" that doesn't seem to get the member sites penalized. I don't know if Google knows it's a top100 or not.

    Most topsites count both inbound and outbound clicks, so the hyperlink on the topsites page is actually to a script, not direct to you site.

    In other words, you'd receive no PageRank from a listing like that.. these things are pure and simple traffic generators. Typically, Google wouldn't even know that you have a link on that page at all.

    To be on the safe side never link with something that has PR0 in any case.
