    Why dmoz directory is so important ?


    Hello experts ,

    i am here with a question.
    My question is why Dmoz directory is so important that every seo expert running after this.

    Is this not possible for a seo expert to give a website good position in search engine.

    I worked on 100+ project, all having good position in the google.
    But i never run after dmoz,yahoo etc.

    So my question is why dmoz is important.?
    Is there additional benefit of dmoz ?

    Please explain.

    Regards.

    Yeah I always submit my sites. It's free normally better then allot of free links you can get out there. but of course I don't worry about it if I don't get in.

    Takes about 5 mins if that to submit a site. worth in my opinion.

    Fill it in, click submit, exit out, then it aint worth worrying about.

    I don`t really believe that DMOZ is that much important for our ranking in Google. Also, have in mind that I have submitted a website before 8 months and still not answer from it. The probably choose on random principle or I don`t know.

    Its just DMOz has very good reputation, and a backlink coming from a reputed directory can help a lot. Second thing, DMOz helps a lot in driving traffic to a website.

    Dmoz is not important right now. Maybe before some years, but not now.

    DMOZ is now used by search engines on the internet. This fact makes DMOZ the hte most important submission you may ever see and it is the reason wht thousands of ppl spend months begging and pleading with DMOZ editors just try to get their sites listed in their directory. The benefits from a quality listing may come from a ranking’s boosts from other searching engines

    That's a view that might have been correct last century and even in the early part of the last decade but I doubt if it's true today and most professional SEOs would agree with me.

    The people who claim it now are those thinking that ancient advice is still correct and failing SEOs looking for excuses .

    Yes, the search engines spider us, but they pretty much spider everything.

    • SEO_AM agrees : From the mouth of a DMOZ editor. DMOZ is a directory only.
    • fathom agrees : What a creepy world... spiders, crawlers, and bots OH MY!
