Thread: Got Tips for getting into DMOZ directory?

    Question Got Tips for getting into DMOZ directory?

    I am very frustrated and it seems impossible to get into the dmoz directory these days.

    What can be done to get a listing accepted there? Do you have to know someone? it is also near impossible to become an editor so that is a lost cause also.

    I have even taken the time to submit a well written submission with no results.

    Looking forward to advice and tips from my fellow netbuilders.

    It can take six months to two years before you know if your submission has been approved. If it doesn't show up in two years, it probably won't.

    A crappy site, made for AdSense site or affiliate marketing site has no chance.

    Best advice: just submit your site and forget about it. It is not worth dwelling upon a DMOZ submission.

    It helps if you submit the site to a category that has editors assigned to it. Many categories do not have any editors.

    Funny that now more and more on all forums I am seeing so many people open up threads about dmoz.

    Can't understand why any webmaster worth a darn would ever worry about, obsess about, or deal with, dmoz!!!!

    But some people have to worry about something.

    I don't know about you, but one of my best performing websites currently has a DMOZ listing. Quality directory submissions are still a valid SEO practice.

    I agree, there shouldn't be any dwelling or obsessing. But spending an hour or two to research and make a quality submission is worth it, IMO.

    Do humans actually use DMOZ? How many ordinary people these days even know of it?

  6. I think we must forget about DMOZ. Its will be waste your time. Its better for you to improve your site naturally and do by yourself.

    Have edited for the directory off & on since shortly after it started. A link from it is still a nice thing, but the directory outgrew the freebie/volunteer run model a decade ago. There's a million plus categories and realistically a few hundred active editors at most, and theres a backlog of submissions in most queues that is mostly spam. The probability anyone will clear the average category of submissions within a specific timeframe is about like the chances of getting hit by lightning on a Tuesday.

    The answer is that it takes maybe 5 minutes or so to submit. You can afford 5 minutes. Do it, then walk away and forget about it. Maybe it'll be added, maybe it wont. Unless they change the model, that's about as good as it gets.
