    I do not know how to do it you may help me

    Also I think no one can help me

    because if you search for 'Directory' it searches for the websites with the exact

    keyword "Directory"

    not like Google and other directories which shows all the pages with the keyword "directory"

    I think now it would be clear for you

    You mean to say you want to make the search case sensitive ?? Does "Directory" and "directory" make a difference !!! So it means in your 3 keywords limit one has to enter "Directory", "directory", "3rd keyword" !!!:eek:

    you see "directory" is not different from "Directory"

    so if you search for "directory" listings will appear for the keyword "Directory"

    so its same

    thats why I am telling that keywords are important when you are submitting to my website

    For a directory
    you can choose these keywords

    Web directory
    Free directory
    general directory like these

    Here you say something.... and contradict the same with your quote below :confused:

    Just read the part I have marked in bold.. and you will understand that you have failed to understand what you want to make us understand thats why all the misunderstanding :D


    Finally this is what I have understood - you mean to say - if a person searches for "apple" he will get results with "apple", "apple pie", "custard apple" but no results which include "apples" ? Right !

    I think both of us have a strong misunderstanding

    here is the answer

    If you search for apple only listings with the keyword "apple or Apple" will appear

    but no results for
    apple pie,
    custard apple,
    apples,


    I hope you understand it now

    also the search is not case sensitive

    that was i am trying to say

    I do not have any misunderstanding.. and really sorry if the last sentence of my last post made u think so :D

    I understood your point from the first post itself - when you gave the example of "directory" - web directory etc. .

    I want you to clear two things (and thus clear your own contradictory theory)


    1) Try and explain your logic in the example you have given for keywords:

    Your selection of keywords:
    Web directory
    Free directory
    general directory


    All contain the common keyword "directory". Any special purpose behing that??

    (Assuming that you stand by what you said in your earlier post about how the search feature works for your directory)Wouldnt the person be better off using:

    Web directory
    Free directories
    niche general internet directory


    2) How is bigoole different from google when searching for any keyword?

    Also "clausheinrich.com" comes up when i search for "directory" on bigoole.com - is it supposed to be there?? Its a blog aint it !!

    You can use different keywords

    That is you can different keywords you like

    clausheinrich.com is a blog

    yes that is what I want editors for this directory



    Suppose I submit my directory www.jeffbrowninc.com for

    keywords
    directory
    web directory
    general directory

    then when I search for any one of the terms mentioned above

    My directory will appear in the listings

    That is it can appear only for 3 keywords and not more than that

    Actually my directory is a paid directory I have not choosen the keyword "paid directory"

    so if any one searches for "paid directory" my site will not appear!


    Technically speaking the script searches for the websites in my database with the exact keyword

    I'm glad people are at least talking about this.
    In a way, we have already done this, but it is much more diversified and fragmented. I could imagine more organization taking place over time that leads to a human edited solution that is superior to DMOZ.

    yes I am just adding more features like

    sorting the listings based on the content by an editor and sorting by

    a combined algorithim (alexa rank,page rank,yahoo back links,msn back links,google Pr) etc

    Since these would prevent a spam listing at the top

    But a editors decision will be given more weightage in addition to it

    I think I have rectified it now

    Resubmit your site again to see whether there are duplicate submissions

    I have already checked it

    if there are report it to me here

    Sorry for bumping this thread!

    Do not give me an infraction for this I am asking as I need some suggestions

    I want to know some more suggestions from you as I am nearing completion

    Also

    whether I should allow submissions to reviewed by an editor or allow submissions to directly show up listings

    As I feel that I can sort this submissions by back links

    Then editors can choose the best site for a keyword

    even though it has less no of back links(that is a new algorithim)

    Why I am asking this from you is that if allow Pending submissions

    then simply it would be a another Dmoz!

    And another thing that the editors accountswho did not login for over a week or 15 days will be deleted as I have programmed like it

    Also I decided to share the revenue with the editors through Google adsense

    Just search for "directory" you may know it

    Tell your views openly about revenue sharing


    Also tell me

    How many keywords I should allow for a website?

    Either 5 or 3?



    The revenue will be through Google adsense


    Sarahk I think I have rectified the problem of duplicated submission

    Another thing is that the websites which get deleted will be again cross checked by me as I have a separate table for database
