I don’t think a POI with building=yes and just a name is going to be searchable.
I would suggest that you tag it like this:
name = Etisalat Academy
building = yes
amenity = college
addr:housename=PO Box 99100, Muhaisnah 2
addr:city = Dubai
phone=+971 4 204 3300
Seeing as Bing has good coverage of this area, you could do even better and trace the building outline and add the tags to the way, rather than to a single point. (But if you do use Bing, make sure to account for any offset the imagery has, using GPS traces to calibrate).
If I wanted to be pedantic I’d point out the following:
You have put a building outline around the whole campus. Instead, tag this way as amenity=college (see below) and then trace the individual buildings as building=yes (and each building has a separate name, e.g. Main Centre, Building B or whatever each one is called)
I don’t think this is a university - I would call it a college. As a rule of thumb, a university issues educational degrees, whereas the Etisalat Academy, as far as I can tell, is a further education college offering training in IT and technical areas.
Personally, I would just set the college name to Etisalat Academy - the rest of the name should sit in address tags. The name should reflect whatever is seen on the building itself, or failing that the name that the academy uses on official documents and/or its website
The road segment (id 118782097) that connects to the Al Nahda Road (primary) should be set to primary_link, and the segment (id 116495397) that connects to the trunk road should be set as trunk_link
I don’t think the roads you have added should be secondary. You can see a guide to how to tag roads in the UAE here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_United_Arab_Emirates (NB I wrote the guide, so open to suggestions and improvements).
At best, the dual carriageway section is possibly tertiary, but the single carriageways I would probably tag as unclassified
I acquire my own GPS traces using a Garmin GPS Map 76Csx. When I remember, I upload these to OpenStreetMap. Otherwise, I just open the GPX files directly in JOSM. The advantage of Garmin devices is of course that you can then create maps from OpenStreetMap data for the GPS unit itself.
When I want to see all the traces (both mine and those that other people have uploaded) in the OpenStreetMap database, I download the GPX tracks using JOSM (or if I’m using Potlatch 2, there’s an option to display the GPS data).
Had a look on various other POIs added by other users and observed that many did not have any details of the city and country but were still searchable e.g. Abu Dhabi coop. I think there is either a problem with what I am adding, can you please help?
I use this link to see my edits. The POI which I add are visible on the map but cannot be searched. I wanted to add so many POIs but if these remain un-searchable then these are of no use. On the page which “csdf” has mentioned about nominations there is some link http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/details?osmtype=[N|W|R]&osmid=
Here I dont know what is [N|W|R]. I dont know what I am really missing out?
