    What Role Do DMOZ Listings Play in Determining Google Ranking
    More or less a DMOZ listing is an authority link.

    However, Matt Cutts also says that DMOZ directory is showing its age (and will be replaced with +1 )

    This DMOZ tools allow to quickly find out whether you are listed in the DMOZ directory,(also known as open directory project or ODP)
    the DMOZ directory (ODP directory) is important for seo, as many off search engine use DMOZ listings as there directory listings or as part of there search engine listing.

    Their algorithm is greatly changed now than that of 10 years ago. yahoo and bing as well as ask or others still have positive effect for that.
    Basically the fact described is not true for all the search engine;but this is certainly true for Google.

    After reading through this thread I have decided to apply to the Open Directory Project, however, I think it will take a while if ever for them to accept my website. I think in terms of SEO ranking, it's a bit of a toss-up as directories in general have less and less impact on seo.

    From what I have seen over the past few years, there is probably about a 10% chance that a good site will get listed. It can take 6 months to over a year just to see if your site gets listed.

    Just submit your site and forget about it.

    By adding a link to the page listed in dmoz categories by default will receive the benefits of any unsolicited links and other reciprocal link requests PageRank twice.

    The fact that you need months to show your listings in DMOZ should tell you something and that is: everybody wants to be there and what is the reason then?
    The reason is, probably, that the listings of your site are showing in the results of many SEO tools, and I think that maybe that is the good reason, since (as I've seen) Google likes DMOZ, so in one way you get listed from a valueable source and that should give you some pluses in the eyes of the Google, at least that is my logic.

    Exactly. Been trying to tell people that for years. Complaining about it, worrying about it, checking and rechecking to see if it's there, total waste of time. Submit it and walk away to do something productive.

    These sites were submitted on September 4, 2011. Each was submitted to an industry category and a location category. Four months have passed thus far and neither is showing up in DMOZ at this point. I will keep monitoring this to see how long it takes to get the submissions approved--if they ever get approved.
