    You need to know someone at Dmoz to get your site approve.

    Everyone knows BullShitWEBSITES.com
    the hot catchy name!!
    I'd have to disagree with you, most editors who actually want to grow their category will go looking for sites to add, in fact sites with great content will likely be found by an editor.

    Of course there are a lot of categories that don't have an active editor, and in those cases knowing an editor who doesn't manage that category isn't going to help you. All the editor can do is create the listing and push it to the category with unreviewed status, which is pretty much the same as what happens when you submit your site.

    I think DMOZ is a luck at the draw kind of game. Yes, there are editors who like their job and don´t care who owns a site as long as it´s useful, but if your website topic falls into a category edited by someone who is out to promote himself and his friends only, good luck getting listed.

    Well i,l tell why u need to start every directory as a free one and then after a nice ALEXA and GOOGLE rank make it a PAY only.
    I Started three directories. I made two of them Paid ones and spend a healthy amount of money on back links building and stuff(no traffic till the GOOGLe PR update). the third one, as it was free had nice traffic and i did not spend any money just did free submissions.
    After the GOOGLE PR update see what happened:
    the two paid dierectories PR = 3 and 2
    The free directory with no money spent PR = 5

    AND NOW

    The two directories are free
    and
    the one that did not cost me any money is earning me very nice livings.

    hhh

    True. No one buys links from new directories. And once it is popular enought, you must make it pay only. Otherwise you will spend all your time rejecting spam sites.

    I wish you all have not told anyone about our secrets.

    I am making lots of money on the niche directories.

    Nich directories are the only directories worth using. Nowadays, general directories suck. Excluding Yahoo directory.
