The site selective behavior of binary doped C60 superconductors with compositions of A2Cs1C60 and A1Cs2C60 (A=Na, K, Rb) was observed by X-ray diffraction. All the A2Cs1C60's indicate the ordering between octahedral and tetrahedral sites, while the situations for the A1Cs2C60 compositions are different depending on the kind of metal A. It is shown that the relationship between the ionic radius of metal A and the size of tetrahedral site plays an important role in site selectivity.
