    I have access to a high level DMOZ mod. Tell me what you think about this money-making idea that takes advantage of my in.

    There are TONS of sites in any given category that are in the unapproved. Editors and moderators have access to these massive lists. Many of these non-listed, but pending are expired, or dead, or simply free domains now. With my connection I can easily get any of them approved if I wanted, however.

    How much value would these domains have if I were to buy them, slap up a place-holder website, and then get them DMOZ approved? I could then turn around and sell the whole shabang. I know that a good domain with some history, backlinks, and a DMOZ listing can go for good money... so could this idea work? And if so would it be valuable enough to bother with given my other options?

    Anybody? A value estimate on these domains would be helpful.

    lol no one cares about dmoz anymore.

    I was a dmoz editor for a time and I hate myself for getting bored with it before raping idiot SEO wallets
