Too Many Categories?

Recently there has been lots of buzz about too many categories on directories, and possibility of getting penalized for tons of empty pages in the index. Now that we have like 20 million pages in the directory,I'm thinking of deleting some of the categories until they have website listings to populate them. Maybe even locations as well.

I would agree. Even if this becomes the most popular directory on the Web, you will still never populate a large number of categories with sites. Just keep adding sites and only add new categories as you need them. Don't be afraid to trim your category tree hard.

Sorry. I didn't mean for my last post to be anonymous. Thanks for listening to my feedback. You have a nice directory and I am happy to contribute to it.

Shawn, I haven't received any mail from you for some time. If you have sent me anything in the last month, it hasn't gotten to me. Have you received anything from me lately? I think I sent you two notes this month. Anyway, Happy New Year.
