    Hello,

    i've noticed that Google Directory and DMOZ is actually the same think. Recently i have been added as an editor and posted my site in DMOZ. Though , my site even if listed in DMOZ for most than a month is still not listed in Google Directory. Any idea why? any idea how long does this google directory get to be updated?

    thank you

    I think they used a different process to submit your link, so its still two seperate directories

    the days of having a dmoz link are long gone.. i don't think the search engines care anymore or weigh a dmoz link like they used to.

    Hi,

    DMOZ submission carries good PR links especially in categories with a small number of submissions. E.G. the pages i edit have 5-6 links in a PR 5 page. Also the backlink is one way and .org. I believe it has some significance

    i'm not practising black hat. Only WH. It's not difficult to get to be an editor in a small not very popular category.

    My website just indexed on Google Directory as well. So i guess its two different databases that one feeds the other periodically.

    Since you're an editor then maybe you can help us to understand the most common DMOZ question.

    Why is it so hard to get a website listed in DMOZ?

    I tried so many times that I gave up on it. Many people on many different forums have complained about not being able to get listed. Any suggestions? Does it take being an editor to get your site listed?
