Hi Again,

Quick question, I plan to submit my site to ODP, as there are many categories, I need some guidance. As we are a commercial site selling italian specialties I assume I need to register in shopping-then ethnic and regional? I looked in directory under recreation and food and only saw only listings for portals etc, not online stores.
Thanks again for your help, this is all so new to me.I don't want to make a mistake and inflame my client.

I would search ODP on your best keywords and see what categories come up that your site would fit into. If you find several then pick the one with the highest pagerank and subit to that one. If all other things are equal (ie: similar pageranks) then I would pick a category that has an editor. If you pick a cat with no editor you may have to wait longer.

Don't forget to submit your site to a relevant regional category as well (if you have a physical location and it's listed on the website).

ODP = Open Directory Project, resides at [dmoz.org...]

It is important because it feeds many other directories and/or search engines, and having a listing will also trigger major search angine sto spider your site.

To be listed in Shopping, you must have an online catalogue and a way of ordering online on your site. Sites must be in English.

Regional listings, list bricks and mortar businesses by their location. Sites must be in English.

World categories are for non-English-language sites, and are sorted by Country.

This is, of course, a very simplistic summary of the situation.
