RISC OS overtakes Apple in the Open Directory

Published: 21st May 19:45:59 | Permalink | Printable

To coincide with the biggest RISC OS Show of 2001, Drobe is pleased to announce that the RISC OS section of the Open Directory Project (ODP), which has featured on Drobe for several weeks now, has finally exceeded
Apple in the number of entries it contains. Well over 1,000 pages are now indexed, including some unusual categories.

Unlike other categorised RISC OS directories, this one is part of something much larger, and so you can expect your site to gain many more vistors if it is listed. Search engines also feed off the ODP, too.

For further information, please see Drobe's feature article.

Try [link] - there's no 'WWW' and the system is case sensitive.

Luckly the content is 'syndicated' across many many other sites, so you can also see [link] , [link] amongst many others.

Don't forget to submit any URLs that you know of, and even consider volunteering to build the worlds largest web directory (even bigger than Yahoo!). You don't even have to apply to edit the RISC OS category - just anything that interests you...

I leave you to guess what my editor name there is :) -- Richard Chiswell.
