My Results So Far In Trying to Buy Links In Dmoz Thought I'd share. For over a year now in various channels (forums,freelance,services) I have been offering $1000 for each of my 15 legitimate websites to get a listing in their most appropriate legitimate category. So $15K in total. To date. no takers. I have been reluctant to contact editors directly for fear of getting blacklisted for the attempt. But after 7 years of trying it is about the only option left. Maybe they aren't corrupt after all... just profoundly ineffective at staying current. I'm have way temped to diff the data nightly to show the world what kinds of sites are getting included and in what categories. I bet there is value in that data if you want to make a sight that gets listed and you don't care what the site is about. I wonder if people are tracking the domain expirations of the whole data set? Do people out there know todays expiring dmoz domains? What do you think is going on over there?
