    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...

    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:
