Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Now, if you had submitted to several topical and/or several regional categories, that's an entirely different matter.
(I should mention that ubiquitous businesses with an inherently local service area are listed only in Regional -- real estate agents, beauticians, etc.)
In these cases, we encourage people to submit as many times as are applicable.
Not so bad, eh? ;) The only downside is getting nailed for oversubmission, which doesn't sound like any worry at all in your case.
Widgets Realestate located in Widgetville, Alaska should submit only to the proper category under regional/..../.../....Alaska/Localities/W/Widegetville/Realestate
NOT to other places just because they may sell homes in other areas.
Regional editors may list sites faster but they also are not as tolerant as a whole of misplaced sites.
(editors are human and sometimes websites do get "shot on sight" for being misplaced though this is actually not proper policy,... something to think about.)
Read the guidelines and if really unsure, just make a note at the end of your description for the editor about it.
I'm talking about business sites here as other sites are handled a bit differently. :)
Some online shopping sites qualify: they have local stores and walk-in customers. Some may not. Some society sites don't qualify -- I couldn't tell you offhand where (geographically) some of my hymnological content was posted: and it doesn't matter. Some science is the same anywhere in the universe. And so on. It's not really about "being allowed **** number of listings."
