    Hi,

    I've been offered by someone who could get my website into DMOZ for $300. Getting a link in there is still valuable?

    Forget it. Spend the $300 elsewhere, it still has value but noting like it used to. Nobody uses it any more, the only people left raving about it are the editors.

    Not worth $300 IMO. 5 years ago I would say yes.

    Still valuable it seems..I just lost by $200+ and I thought I was going to be alright. Darn it..this expired domain was DMOZ listed,
    so the price I am guessing was mostly for the DA but more because it was DMOZ listed and still active as of now. But yes, $300
    is a lot but I'll say why not if it'll help you sell the domain even more when listing it and it might even help you in Google to move
    a few ranks. I'll personally pay the $300, but that's just me.

    I think the cost vs reward doesn't warrant the purchase. $300 in links from a powerful site would be more ideal...

    Definitely not worth $300, not even $100.

    It is not 2009 anymore and DMOz links are not serious enough anymore.

    But if you have the money to spare and want to test out, may be i would have done it just for the sake of it :pat:
