    hey i wish there was a way to know that.
    I have added my legit llc business many times, and even once saw a hit from editors.dmoz but no listing for months.

    dmoz is a corrupt fuckup.
    If you want your site listed try to become an editor, all your competition is already editor and rejecting your site :)

    Dmoz.org is corrupt... Find your category editor in the forums. Offer your offline email address and state that you want advice on a "sensitive issue" and to contact you from an unaffiliated email... then say that you know it takes time and effort to make things happen and make an offer... Not for the link, but for the assistance in properly navigating the process that leads to getting listed. Half of DMOZ is managed by black hatters that don't want to share the google boost. At least that is probably the case in all the categories that matter. If dmoz was a "honest" directory they would make all the links nofollow to maintain the honesty of the data. Now it just doesn't allow new entries for 2 reasons. 1st... it costs more to manage more data and they are at the limit they can afford to maintain, and 2nd... their primary asset is google boost, not authoritative indexes, which is why their categories are stale and useless and full of dead links and parked domains. That is also why Google distanced themselves from it a few years back. It spun out of control.

    Awesome site - lovin it - I've been successful by removing everything commercial and making it look informational (NO Adsense, etc). Once approved, then you can put all that back. Best to do this while you're in the early stages of site building.

    Do you add if the google directory in your site will facilitate the process of manual addendum in dmoz

    I'd just ignore this rotten place, fighting for a place in there is actually approving them.
    just like gaypal, egay and similar. avoid when possible.
