in this whole forum has any one received any email that confirms that your website is listed with dmoz? I want to know that are they accepting sites or we just wasting our time ... because I never listen form them as accepted .. any one ?
I can answer that..... NO!

DMOZ lists roughly 10k sites per month.

How could we be waisting your time? We do not provide a listing service for webmasters, we are building a categorical listing of sites for WEB SURFERS and end users. You are invited to suggest a site but thats it, no promises, no charges.

And why would we waste time and resources sending out hundreds of thousands of emails? Suggest the site, then it is one of the following:

1. It is awaiting review
2. It is listed
3. It was not accepted

Simple as that my friend so i dont see how an email will help. Suggest the site, have patience and the site may be listed within the next few years and in between time simply move along and promote your site by other means.

Now how hard is that?

Its really tough to list your website on DMOZ due to their weird rules and regulations.

How are they weird?

It's a quality directory that's hard to get into but it's worth it if you ever do. DMOZ has slowly gotten better over the years as well.

Hi,

I suggested my site 4 years ago and only noticed the other day when I was doing a site value check that it said it was listed so I went over and checked and it was.

I was talking to a guy the other day who used to be an editor, he was saying that it depends on if there is an editor for a chosen category, you also have to really stick to there submission guild lines and apart from that play the waiting game, I suggested another site a month a go and do a check once a week, not listed yet.

All the best
Jay

If your site is quality, you can get approve easily. In order to get approved, your site must provide something useful to visitors. I also heard that there are some editors who can get your site approve with high price.

As usual there always has to be someone casting dispersion on our Volunteer Editors.

So can you prove your statement or is it just "hear say"?

If you cannot prove your statement and it is simply something you have heard, then why spread an unture rumour that can taint our Volunteer Editors reputations??

If you have no facts, proof or evidence then you should keep your Big Mouth shut ? That would be the correct thing to do.....rather than spreading untrue rumours.

I was waiting for you to reply Snooks cause I knew you'd smell it out.

Snooks for the first time in 16 years of having been online, I submitted a blog to dmoz and I read the rules. lol

<--- won't ever check the listing but can brag that I submitted one.

Snooks, do you need new rims for your car by any chance?

I suggested my site over a year and half ago, im waiting as well. This is normal as all url's are manually indexed at DMOZ, so i would say just hang in there.

I would apply for an editor role as well, you simplify DMOZ's submission process and make sure the category you manage is updated regularly.
The application process is quite straightforward, it shouldn't take very long until you get a decision.

Anyone is welcome to apply, checking people who volunteer is also time consuming and is done by volunteer editors, so it still can take some time. If you check my recent posts on here it gives some basic guidelines to apply.

Every category has hundreds of editors. The names usually show the limit of an editors permissions to edit. It is not 'their' category. Everyone who is listed as an editor higher up the tree can edit there because editors can edit in any category listed lower in the tree. Also we have editors, like snooks and myself and many many more, who can edit anywhere in the directory. So every category is in their name!

Each site has to wait for a volunteer working in their spare time for no financial reward to volunteer to look at the site to review it for possible listing and in some categories the spam is so bad that often editors prefer just to go and find sites for themselves.

Join us and see for yourself!

I need to add a website (in my signature) but for the life of me I cannot find a category for Japanese auto exporter information sites. Plenty of categories for actual exporters, but none for resource sites. Help?

I am interested in adding my site, but need some advice on which category.
It has to do with research and information on rare blood types.
Here is a study I have been involved in:
http://journals.plos.org/plosone/art...l.pone.0141362
The theme of my blog is surrounding it.
Any advice which category is most appropriate?

It very difficult to be approved on Dmoz. I have submitted my website six months back but still not approved.

I submitted to and not sure how long ago but I still have not checked if 1 of my blogs got approved and I don't care if it is approved or not.

I just checked off 1 of my bucket list items. lol
