    Anyway to get DMOZ to add my site faster?


    I've waiting for over a year and still no results getting site added to DMOZ directory. I've tried twice or thrice already this year and still no luck.

    Anyone find a way to get it listed properly or faster? Anyone I can email. Or should I just giveup on DMOZ can continue with other tactics.

    You shouldn't keep resubmitting.

    Submit once, leave, get on with something else.

    I believe resubmitting pushes your submission down as it is done by date with the newest submissions put at the 'bottom of the pile' as it were.

    There are a couple of Dmoz editors on here, they may be able to confirm this or give you a better answer even.

    We have had the same experience. To the point I figured DMOZ had no more volunteers to work the site anymore.

    Old advice but probably still valid at How to get your site listed FOUR times faster! (Submit to the right category)

    To kinda back that up, I started working through an English county today and I had to move a large proportion of the listing suggestions to more appropriate categories for further evaluation later. If I moved them to a different county, it could be a some time before they get looked at again.

    Why does this happen? Because submitters home in on what they perceive as a more important (or honeypot locality in this example) rather than the most appropriate category.

    PS. Yes, repeat listing suggestions overwrite earlier ones. This might be counter productive. The submission guidelines, which all submitters acknowledge but mostly fail to read, forbid the practice.

    The same thing with 2 my sites - several months have passed and still no result. The main thing is that both sites were submitted to the RIGHT categories and I have no doubts about this.

    actually it's difficult to get listed in dmoz. it takes several months before you can or you will see your site appears to their directory. dmoz manually check every site listing. well i guess the best way to be listed by that directory site is to make put your site on the specific category where your products and services matches. like you dud i am still waiting for dmoz to list my site. as what they say, patience is a virtue. so just wait don't rush. hope my reply makes sense to you. good day

    As I've understood, it is almost unreal to get into those damn DMOZ ! It seems that it is almost unreal. Some of forum members say that it has already passed several years from the moment of submission. Another alternative is Yahoo Directories, but the price is too high - 299$ submission and also 299$ for annual fee. Greedy bast**ds!

    In idea, we should get from this benefit, but how is this in reality - it is unknown. I've read a lot of articles regarding this topic and almost everyone advices to submit submit your own site to DMOZ or Yahoo directory. The thing is that I don't know to what extent this is actual today.

    If we submit our website but site not listed then we get any benefit? I think yes withoutlisted also we will get traffic for our website.
