Title: Site not listed on DMOZ
Post by: Nicpoint45 on 04-21-2010, 10:47:45
I have search for my website competitor on DMOZ which offers the same services on my site I submitted my site on its location but my site not getting listed on DMOZ. Does it take years to be listed in DMOZ? what is the maximum weeks te get listed on DMOZ?

There is no actual 'waiting list'. When you submit your website to DMOZ, it does not go into a review queue. It goes into a suggestion pool. Editors are free to not even look in the suggestion pool to fill their category. They can just simply put whatever sites THEY feel should go in there and 'never' even look at submitted sites.

DMOZ does not exist. It is a bloody joke and it will never be able to salvage their reputation. They may as well just close the site down, as it is useless to anyone but page scrapers and search engine spammers.

DMOZ is run by a bunch of indepent reviewers and they are free to update, add, remove links at their own pleasure.  Some sections have better reviewers than others and some update more than others. It's really a lottery to be quite frank.

I've had sites that were on their for years, then suddenly removed. Just submit and don't count on every getting added. If you do, thank your lucky stars  :o

DMOZ some time ago was a player, the hype associated with them was well warranted. Now however, I'd say they're a dieing breed. Considering the randomness of how sites are accepted, I probably wouldn't bother anymore. However if you can get your site on their you probably do get some positiveness for your SERPS. and it still looks nice and adds some value when you sell your site  :P

You can get high PR if you get into odp, but it will not give you any traffic.
In addition, almost all editors promote own site, so nobody (including Google) has respect for this project. O0

Google respects DMOZ ranking. Even if they not, if you indexed on dmoz. Then you index in a lot of indexes too, so your pagerank gets higher.

DMOZ was relevant in the past. Now you should just drop the idea of getting into DMOZ unless you know an editor.

I've had a couple sites recently added to DMOZ. It only took about 3 weeks. Guess I got lucky, but I have made about 100 submissions total.

I think same it's really all done to luck if you get listed, however as in most cases you do need to read there
guidelines  before submitting as lots of sites do not meet them. :'(

DMOZ for a period of time was a player, they are justified and well related publicity. Now, however, I would say they are a dying breed. The number of sites that are recognized by the randomness of the Given, probably does not bother me. If you can get your site in the SERPS, but perhaps some of them are positive. When you sell your site, well worth the look at some additional.
