Amazon alerts sellers to improve the classification of a listing when a listing is not correctly classified on the website. Either these listings are missing a category (Item-type) or are assigned a category that is too broad. For example, when listing a digital SLR camera, you should use the item-type as "digital-SLR-Camera" and not "digital-camera".
To identify the right classifications for your products, use the Product Classifier.
