As you can see on here:
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows: -
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." - The City's gone, -
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.
We wonder, - and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.
- Horace Smith
Thought I would quote the less common of the Ozymandias pair, since I think Shelley's is probably on everyone's minds already
I suppose instead of a hunter chasing a wolf, in DMOZ's case it will be a scraper chasing content - and instead of London, they'll find the NOODP tags.
Getting links from Dmoz were never be easy but I must say the end of one powerful external resources where ever one can backlink for their site. I know many sites those were ranking well and their one of the important factor was their sites were added here.
You do your business I do mine because you are you and I am I If we meet it is nice.
whoa!!!!!! I did not expect this at all, neither did I see this coming! Building a backlink from such site was undeniably hard. just wow! I wonder what happened to them.
