    This is in reference to Ivictus' post on dmoz anchor text. To get the most SEO benefit is it better to have branded anchor text (i.e. Nike Red Shoes) or just have your main keyword Red Shoes?

    I think DMOZ would be wise to any sneaky seo tricks. Better make sure that your website is up to par.

    I know, but I was just asking which would be better if you could get away with it?

    DMOZ is as bent as a roundabout....there is no criteria to follow tho they would have you believe...its all wheels in wheels and let no-one tell you otherwise....most cats are modded by editors only interested in their own gains and even if they are modded you only have to log in once as an editor in 3 months, make a slight amendment and do shit to keep your editor status....meaning all your competitors never stand a chance of getting in no matter how you try...

    CONCLUSION....apply to be an editor and do the same as everyone else...

    [DMOZ Editor] ;)

    I wouldn't bother so much with DMOZ. I submitted all my sites and my client's, I can't say if any was accepted as I did not checked, most likely not. All my submissions were legit on good quality sites with no ads(I keep sites I build ads free for a few weeks) but not one was come up in SEO Quake with a DMOZ link So, I guess the editor route is the way to go if you really want in DMOZ. Speaking of which , how can I persuade you to add my links Delboy? :)

    Normally you would have the "Name" of your website as anchor text in DMOZ. My website is
    Code:
    http://www.interkiwiwebdevelopers.com
    and the name of my site is "InterKiwi Web Developers". If you want to see my listing you can view it here:
    Code:
    http://www.dmoz.org/Regional/Oceania/New_Zealand/Otago/Localities/Dunedin/Business_and_Economy/Computers_and_Internet/Web_Design_and_Development/ 
    . You will notice that all the other websites listed in this category have their website names as anchor text, you will find tons of other examples on DMOZ. I am also editor of this "small" category :).

    First of all, sorry for somewhat resurrecting a thread but it's very pertinent to what I'm wanting to ask, and as a newbie, I couldn't get a new thread to post...

    I'm in the fortunate situation of having a site with a DMOZ listing with anchor text that is NOT my site name, but rather my key search phrase.

    Recently I accidentally took out my meta information and Google started using the DMOZ info instead. This coincided with me changing domain suffix using permanent redirects. What I've found is that my ranking has jumped, but I've now got a poor description on the results.

    If I use the noodp meta tag, and use my own meta description again, will I keep the goodness from the DMOZ anchor text?

    P.S. - I hope this post is clear, because the fuller explanation wouldn't get through the filters for me.
