Until yesterday, my site would be found in one of the two catagories (one new), that it is listed in. I am getting VERY few SERPs in directory searches.
I know the G Directory updates in stages, but I do not know what/when the last update was, or which step updates next, but it appears to me to be in process of updating the search function.
I am talking about the G directory, not the DMOZ. G's Directory Search is missing entire catagories. Both The regional & Shopping catagories are not reflected in searches I do. Not just for my site, but using general search terms that before would show many sites in these specific cats.
A Few days ago, the catagories were included in the directory searches I am doing today. I have not seen any change this afternoon, still is way short on results.
In investigating this, I searched for the site name in the Google directory, but the site name wasn't found(although if I go down through the hirearchy structure, the site is listed on the Google directory page). If I search in DMOZ the page is found.
This site has been listed in both DMOZ and Goggle's directory for years. Both the DMOZ page and the Google page have a page rank of 4, but neither shows up as a backlink to the site.
