Categorization Update for YouTube

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

YouTube(www.youtube.com) has been moved to the Streaming Media category. It was previously categorized as Social Networking. This change will take effect in today’s URL list download in your Cyfin or CyBlock product.

You can change how sites are categorized by going to the Advanced Settings – Category Setup – Edit URLs screen.  Simply use the pulldown to select a category that you wish to assign a site (or sites) to.  Then enter it in the text box, and click Submit.  From then on, the site will be categorized as being in the category you just assigned it to.  You can confirm this by going to the Advanced Settings – Category Setup – Check URL screen and typing in the same site you just re-categorized.

In addition to this ability, you have Custom Categories, which are empty and available for you to use.  These categories can be populated with sites of your choosing, and you can even rename the custom categories on the Advanced Settings – Category Setup – Name Custom screen.  With these tools at your disposal, you can customize the product to truly suit your unique environment.
