When a search is done for our company domain name - which is listed in ODP topical and regional categories, the listing returned is the verbatim listing in LookSmart.

Sometimes AOL has the "show more like this" which leads to the AOL/ODP category the site is listed in. Other times site that are in ODP are returned by do not seem to be recognized as being in ODP becaue the "show more like this" is not presented.

Kinda makes me thing of the old YAHOOGLE relationship with ODP, Ink, and ??? (LookSmart at times?)

What determines how this all plays out?
