this question is asked nearly every day and answered. that is why we mention the search option. imagine having a small child ask you the same thing everyday even when you answer it each and every time, they still ask.
to help us answer for you, can you please define tone for you. i know the textbook definition but most people do not know what that is.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.

Ok, you want a legit answer... Here!
Your abdominal muscle is like any other, train it as such.
The reason a decent amount of lifters don't train abs is because many of us train with compound lifts (squats, deads, bench, etc) and those hit the abs hard on their own, so specificity is not necessarily needed.
I'm assuming your want to "tone" your abs is meaning that you want to see them, correct? This goes back to the "abs are made in the kitchen" saying. So eat clean! (Talk to a dietician about that....I'm not your guy here)
As far as good ab exercises, GHD sit-ups, hanging leg raises, planks, Russian twists.
And p.s.... Don't say you want to "tone up"... You sound like a chick

Well, I listed what I knew was pretty good, but you did not really respond to it and since most others did not either, I figured we were all pretty much in agreement.
The reason why you would most likely get more hits on arm stuff say, (on any site) is because they are just an all out much more popular showy bodypart, that pumps up easy, lets the lifter feel some weight in the hands and thus feel strong and most guys find arms quite responsive and love to train them.
Ab work is not a big favorite among the reg gym goers and, even though some of the big compound lifts hit the mid section (at least statically to strengthen, as PL'ers are not big direct ab work fans either) abs are not high on the list of "pumper" feel good exercises or impressive lift numbers etc.
Along with direct ab work to really show up well, the diet has to be quite strict and dialed way in, as you cannot carry much fat in order for the hard work to show.
I will be one to admit, ab work for me, is boring and not fun to do. I do it on occasion, but less than I should.
