    Dropped from DMOZ = Dropped from GGL?


    I don't know if this post belongs under DMOZ or here, because it applies to both. Basically, I just found out this week that a site I had "given up on" was accepted by DMOZ months back. As expected, the site is also listed in Google's "directory". The site still shows up in DMOZ search results, but is no longer listed in the category (confirmed by a vol. editor at resource-zone. He said the editor probably noticed something non-conforming and dropped it.)

    Basically, my question is: does this mean the next time GGL updates its directory with current DMOZ listings, this site will be automatically dropped from GGL's directory also? I assume so, but am not entirely clear on whether the ggl dir is an exact mirror of DMOZ, or just reliant on DMOZ for entry into ggl.


    I saw the dmoz and ggl dir referrals in my webalizer just yesterday, after months of ignoring this site. I also discovered that my previously 0 PR site now had PR ranging from 1-3 on various pages. Natural search traffic didn't skyrocket, but it had become somewhat appreciable, and if I had known about it, I would have paid more attention to adsense placement and other aff. links., and of course linked to my other newer sites to boost PR, maybe sold some links on PR-3 pages, if there was a demand, optimized the content better for better serps, etc.

    Yes, GDirectory is an exact duplicate of DMOZ. When they update, G will drop your site from the directory.
