Hi, I just added my site to the DMOZ dir

but I read that it is almost impossible to get listed, but lets say I did, what will that mean to my site? Will I improve search engine listings alot? PageRank?

Good luck you will need lots of it. I figure you have little if any chance of getting in; its controlled by mostly crooked people. If you do get lucky the benefits wont show for at least a few years and they wont be that substantial. People get way to caught up in trying to get in DMOZ, its really not worth the extra effort.

Some categories are well controlled, honest and useful. If you aimed at the Gambling “Guides” category however then you have no chance. It’s had 27 entries for over 2 years and is a closed book. The reason maybe that the editor has forgotten his/her password <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” /> Target well elsewhere though and it can be very useful resource.

Most DMOZ editors I have come across are decent honest people, but of course some slipped through the net. DMOZ is still worth having, though I imagine Wiki is now a reasonable competitor for authority ranking.

DMOZ is way to overrated.:rasberry: It doesn’t hurt to submit, but don’t expect to be accepted :dozing:

I agree, Dmoz is well overrated and is not worth the time. I had previously submitted 5 sites a few years ago and they are still in the awaiting approval queue.
