The announcement came via a notice that's now showing on the DMOZ site, saying it will close as of March 14 2017

It has been years since that site had any real relevance. Outdated and not fit for purpose.


Yet. although rarely I found the odd description in the serps showing the listing description from Dmoz so had it removed ha

If it was me and I knew SEO's were dying for links from the site then I would milk the shit out of it. RIP to a piece of internet history though.

DMOZ has been dead for ages.

They are just burying the body on March 14th.

Damn!! Have a drink everyone, to those who remember Dmoz from its glory days. We are getting old :(

Dude, you sound like my grandpa. I was old when Yahoo Site Explorer has been shut down. Ever heard of it?

Not a good day to check on domain metrics but wonder how much the domain name will sell for.
