>I have been listed in the open directiry and originally when I got listed in my category, when I typed in a particular key word, I would come up second. Now I come up 18th and I have no clue why my position has slipped. Especially since it is human controlled. Is the index based off of algorithims? Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

The list is sorted alphabetically. As newer entries higher in the alphabet are added you will be moved down. Also like Yahoo new entries enjoy a brief ride at the top of the list for a few weeks, then they take their alphabetical position.
