7) Why should I put my website in MasterMOZ?
The web is very large, and it can be difficult to get noticed, partly because of the web size and scale and partly because the web is not tangible or concrete. The challenge all businesses have is getting noticed and in particular getting noticed for the correct reasons. Your business is important. You spend time and money building your business and its website. MasterMOZ helps you get noticed.

MasterMOZ is the premiere socially managed web directory. It is a Human Managed Directory and meets search engine standards.

9) MasterMOZ has too many categories. How can I figure out where to put my listing? Can't I put it at the hightest level for my business? MasterMOZ has many categories. Do not be discouraged, these categories are your friend. The categories are used to distinguish your business from others on the web, the category - sub-category details help you and your website be known in specific disciplines and topics of interest. Without detailed categories your business and it's associated website would be less distinguished and distinctly associated to specific information.
10) How does MasterMOZ work? Why is it beneficial to add my business to the MasterMOZ directory?
