The Google Directory powered by DMOZ is gone. Source:http://www.google.com/dirhp Google shut down its directory which was powered by their own open directory project DMOZ.org. So does it mean that google will not use the database of DMOZ while judging and majoring the authority of any website??? As they have openly said that they believe thier own web search engine is the fastest way to find the required information on the web. Please share your thoughts on it.
