Open Directory (DMOZ)

Is it worth the time and effort submitting my sites to DMOZ? Firstly it takes ages to get included, thats if your site gets included at all and secondly do the major search engines take any notice of Dmoz listings?

may as well add - does not take too much time - it is the waiting that annoys - try reaching out to the editor of the category

Re: Open Directory (DMOZ)

I would also recommend submitting to the local categories only, the main categories seem to be harder to get listed under. In either case it is worth the try, who knows, you might get lucky.

Once you do get listed, expect a nice jump in the ranks over time, as other sites will start to update their data as well. Hopefully you able to use good anchor text.

Re: Open Directory (DMOZ)

it still has a lift - look at the sites that rank and have it versus others in lists without
